Overview

This book is Michele Saee’s life’s work. A collection of projects, built, unbuilt, conceptual, and experimental which expands over more than three decades. There are over 50 projects in different cities, countries, and continents, all with different programs, scales, and sizes on sites varying from the hillsides of Tempio, Sardinia in Italy to the Champs Elysees, Paris in France to the ocean front of the Pacific in California, USA to an apartment condo in newly developed towers in Beijing, and a new aquarium in Shanghai, China. This book is about an architect’s journey of discovery—a fluid emotional exercise in life, love, work, and architecture.

The projects are presented based on their individual original design and their development. There are hand and computer sketch, drawings, and model studies of different stages of their development. The book covers everything from conception of the projects in their early stages through the process of their creation. The book clearly shows Michele’s way of working and his personal exploration in establishing his architectural philosophy and language.

Authors

Michele Saee believes that the work of architecture reflects our needs, our desires, and our ability to improve the quality of our relationships with creativity and adventure. In his words, architecture is a part of everyday life. Mr. Saee received his Master of Art in Architecture from the University of Florence School of Architecture in 1981 and then his post graduate degree in Technical Urban Planning at the Polytechnic of Milan the following year.
His professional career began with Superstudio in Florence, Italy, and he then joined Morphosis in Santa Monica, California, after moving to Los Angeles in 1982. Once he started his own design firm in 1985, Michele joined the design faculty at Otis College of Art and Design in 1986, and in 1990 began teaching at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). After 21 years, Mr. Saee joined the University of Southern California (USC) in 2011 where he is currently a faculty member.
