"Architecture is a chess game of Form & Story waged on the battlefield of a building and its site." —Jef7rey Hildner, Visual Ef9ects A GREAT BUILDING presents more than a... More > breathtaking expression of the aesthetics of materials, space, and light—more than a stunning display of Abstract Form. Like architecture since the dawn of time, a great building tells a Symbolic Story.

In a building, everything must be formed, but a great building, like a great movie, presents more than Form, more than Visual Effects. A great building presents Visual Ef9ects. That "9" stands for Story. Truth. My book ​presents a manifesto. Build beautiful. Build the truth. Visual Ef9ects springs from the talk I gave in 2016 for the Symposium on Formalism at the Syracuse University School of Architecture Program in Florence. (Cover C—"Kind of Blue")< Less
