An alluring glimpse into magnificent Cornell-like boxes organized by these two leading architects. Inspired by the idea of the wunderkammerÑÒwonder-roomÓ or Òcabinet of curiositiesÓÑthat originated during the Renaissance, world-renowned architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien invited 35 celebrated architects and designers from around the world to create their own wunderkammers, filling boxes with objects that inspire them. This delightful book gathers together the varied, evocative wunderkammers along with accompanying statements by their architect-creators, including such luminaries as Shigeru Ban, Toyo Ito, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Peter Eisenman, Steven Holl, Richard Meier, Murray Moss, DiŽbŽdo Francis KerŽ, Juhani Pallasmaa, Elias Torres, and Peter Zumthor.
