This compact publication pays tribute to John Hejduk (1929-2000), one of the most original figures in American architecture and design. Best known for his visionary works on paper and his influence on students at Cooper Union, New York, where he was Dean for 25 years, Hejduk in his last years moved from the mathematical concerns of his earlier designs towards an allegorical mode that exalted architecture's spiritual function. His lyrical last works explore themes of falls from grace, itinerancy, passage and transformation, and, above all, architecture as sanctuary.
