In stunning color photography, the book features twenty built works by PVA. Each shows the creative design, quality materials, and exacting proportions that set PVA apart. The text, crafted from interviews with managing partner Peter Vincent, tells an intimate story of each project and discusses the various personal experiences that have influenced his architectural philosophy. A foreword by Malia Mattoch McManus, author of The Hawaiian House Now, discusses how PVA projects respect their surroundings and the culture.
