Process: Suzhou Villa
Since founding RoTo Architects in Los Angeles in 1991, Michael Rotondi has led diverse projects that include restaurants, retail spaces, and private residences both locally and internationally. Taking a closer look at projects from across forty years, these process books span the time between conception and creation - from sketch to renders and beyond - providing a deeper glimpse into an integrative process that combines constant trans-disciplinary learning and adaptation with realization and practice. "Our approach is to know the place, the people, the resources, and then the architecture emerges. Life gives Form to Architecture."
