"In Light of Hilberseimer", new book by Vibok Works
Publication. Vibok Works, 2015
Vibok Works has a new book: "In Light of Hilbeseimer" by Plácido González, in which I have been working as editor over the past two years. With a three-pronged and unedited approach (Hilberseimers's vital circunstances, his integration in Chicago's cultural sphere and his influential labor as a Professor at the Armour Institute and later the IIT), the author seeks to shed new light on the work of an architect who continues to be unjustly pushed into “the shadow of Mies”, even though more than 25 years have passed since the first great publication appeared that rescued him from oblivion. The edition seeks to fuse the presentation of the author's rigorous research with a vivid storytelling aimed to a wide public. Fresh from the printer, the book is already avaliable in our webshop and amazon -and soon in your local bookshops.
