Visible | Invisible: Landscape Works of Reed Hilderbrand

Reed Hilderbrand, LLC
Watertown, MA
Publisher: Metropolis Books

Visible | Invisible explores the preoccupations, influences, themes, and challenges that shape how the principals and designers at Reed Hilderbrand reflect on their work. In contrast to the recent tendency to illustrate conceptual depth through diagram, three-dimensional illustration, and process drawings, this book relies on the photographic representations of built work–through the interpretive lens of an artist and through plan drawings–to evidence consistency in approach and outcome. The result is an expository work that speaks of values, convictions, and aspirations toward humanistic achieve.
