Palimpsest traces the history and evolution of KlingStubbins, an internationally recognised design firm with more than 60 years of experience. This book encompasses KlingStubbins projects from around the globe, varying in purpose and program for the corporate/commercial, government, healthcare, higher education, hospitality/entertainment, institutional/civic and R&D markets. This design firm recognises that cultural character - the highly evolved and particular idiosyncratic patterns of living and working - serves as the catalyst for well-burnished, enduring design. Rich with drawings, photographs and renderings, KlingStubbins: Palimpsest highlights a wide collection of notable projects, including the Citicorp Center in New York, Merck Research Laboratories in Boston, the Zhiye Plaza Office Tower in China, Japan's Landmark Tower, Washington-metro's FDA Headquarters Consolidation, Las Vegas' Venetian Hotel and Resort and Philadelphia's Bell Atlantic Tower. An integrated architecture, engineering, interiors, planning and landscape architecture practice, KlingStubbins balances pragmatism and inspiration throughout.
