"SITE was founded in 1970 in New York City as a multi-disciplinary architecture and environmental art studio. From the beginning, the purpose was to integrate visual art, architecture and the surrounding context as part of a unified vision. The group s philosophical foundations grew out of a belief that buildings, artworks and public spaces should not be conceived as objects sitting in the environment; instead they should be seen as a fusion of inside and outside elements interpreted as the environment. The uses of inversion and commentary have been emblematic of SITE S work from the beginning. SITE has frequently treated buildings as the subject matter of art, as opposed to an objective of the usual design process. This has provided a means of using commonplace structures as the raw material (or as a foil) for critical interventions in a continuing search for altered meanings. During the past decade, SITE has become increasingly involved with environmental issues in architecture — not only the challenge of energy conservation, sustainability, and the integration of landscape — but also with the psychological and aesthetic aspects of green design. The architectural challenge of creating places of special identity, as an antidote to the impersonal legacy of the 20th-century built environment, has always been a fundamental mission in SITE S work. Since this objective has become increasingly relevant in the context of a new millennium, it continues to motivate our work in research and design." From the Preface by James Wines SITE S distinctive and multifaceted architecture never strays far from art . This book presents a stimulating overview of SITE S development from the early 1970s to the present, and includes essays by admirers such as writer Tom Wolfe, and fellow architects and critics including Michael McDonough and Michael J. Crosbie. Other essays and interviews, interspersed throughout the book, illuminate and challenge the reader and provide a glimpse into the incomparable architecture and art produced by the cross-disciplinary team at SITE.
