FORTY YEARS OF ARCHITECTURAL WORK
Richard G. Stein
I can now describe the metabolism of buildings both in birth and in life. Richard Stein
Known for his pioneering research in energy-conserving design and its application in the building industry. This monograph on Richard Stein is comprised of photographs, drawings, and texts of both built and unbuilt projects. They range from furniture he designed in 1939, when he worked for Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer, to hospitals, schools, and housing projects. Notable among them are buildings for the Wiltwyck School for Boys, Coney Island Hospital, a small beach house, and a development plan for the Bronx River.
Published to coincide with an exhibition in the Arthur A. Houghton Jr.Gallery. Richard Stein was a member of the faculty of The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture from 194690.
