$70.00

Bridging the domains of urban design, infrastructure, landscape, and architecture, agps architecture approaches problem solving as a collaborative enterprise, exploring the relationship between idea and practice and emphasizing the importance of the functional, technical, economic, environmental, and aesthetic in design and construction methods.


The firm has designed multiple projects in America and Europe for government bodies and educational institutions, as well as several structures for commercial and residential use. Their projects in the United States include the Children's Museum of Los Angeles, lunch shelters for the Los Angeles Unified School District, storefronts in Los Angeles's Korea Town, private residences in California, and the Portland Aerial Tram.


Another Take is the first comprehensive survey of the projects imagined and completed by agps architecture. Complete with color photographs of each of the projects, floor plans, sections, and elevations, as well as several essays that delve into frequently overlooked aspects of architectural design, this stunning volume serves as both a portfolio and a sort of exploration of latent, but recognizable traits that are as much a part of the buildings as their physical manifestation.
