Yale University Press Publishes its First-ever Monograph on a Living American Architect
Written by Tracy Myers, curator at the Heinz Architectural Center of the Carnegie Museum of Art, the book’s essays underscore the relevance that Berke’s work holds today.


NEW HAVEN, CT.- Featuring 21 projects that span her more than 25 years as an architect, the newly released Deborah Berke provides provocative insight into how one of the world’s true modern architects conceives of and approaches her work—both the projects that have made her famous and many that the public has never seen before.

“We have always pursued ideas done simply and beautifully,” says Berke. “This, of course, feels appropriate given today’s economic situation.” This way of thinking, how Berke seeks to balance visibility with subtlety, permeates all of the firm’s work. What Berke’s clients and admirers would say is that the firm’s work transcends time.

Whether one peruses the nearly 250 images or digs deep in the book’s engaging essays, the result is a rich understanding of the genius of Deborah Berke--a genius that isn’t self-conscious or ostentatious, but rooted in restraint, integrity, and context.

Written by Tracy Myers, curator at the Heinz Architectural Center of the Carnegie Museum of Art, the book’s essays underscore the relevance that Berke’s work holds today. From the 21c Museum Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, to the Irwin Union Bank in the architecturally renowned city of Columbus, Indiana, to the Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York City, Myers’ DEBORAH BERKE gives us behind-the-scenes access to one of the most important architects currently at work.
