His studio focuses on inspired design for people, incorporating context and culture to create one-of-a-kind buildings for clients and users. This monograph spans the 30-year history of this innovative studio, both examining the creative working process and tracing artistic influences from fashion, music, dance, sculpture, fine jewelry and other disciplines. Fentress' portfolio of award-winning designs includes world-class airports, museums, convention centers, courthouses, civic buildings, laboratories, higher education facilities, and office towers.
