Rafael Moneo is a courageous architect, one who for decades has defined his own style of architecture. With sensitivity to materials and context, Moneo has created a series of works of world significance. Moneo now turns his analytical eye to his own work.

Twenty-one carefully selected projects are presented in detail, from the initial idea through construction to the completed work. Among the projects are Joan MirĂ³ Foundation in Majorca, The Moderna Museet and Arkitekturmuseet in Stockholm, the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, Los Angeles, and, perhaps above all, the Prado extension. These are combined with Moneo's own drawings as well as informal documentary material from the design of each of the projects.
