considers some of the Italian-born architect's most sumptuous
projects, from lavish apartments to charming pool houses."--

"Pietro Cicognani's book celebrates 35 years of architectural creativity."-- "Forbes"
"During the course of his diverse, 30-year career, architect Pietro Cicognani has designed everything from formal country estates and glamorous Fifth Avenue duplexes to eclectic restaurant interiors and minimalist artist studios. Yet if there's one type of structure the architect may be most identified with, it's the barn. An entire section of his sumptuous new book is devoted to barn-style homes."-- "Galerie"
