Featuring twenty architecture and design luminaries over the age of eighty, reading the conversations captured in Aileen Kwun and Bryn Smith’s new book Twenty Over Eighty is like attending one of the world’s greatest salons. Including Milton Glaser, Denise Scott Brown, Seymour Chwast, Richard Hollis, Ricardo Scofidio, Stanley Tigerman, Ralph Caplan, Bob Gill, Alessandro Mendini, Richard Sapper and Deborah Sussman (to name just a few) the authors capture the spirit, personality and collective wisdom of an important generation of luminaries with much still to give. A recently excerpted section on Ingo Maurer gives an early glimpse of the book which debuts today.
