Michele Saee: Philosophy and Process
by Michele Saee; introduction by Claude Parent

Saee approaches his work with a soulful, sensual, poetic, and artistic impulse, and does the same with this magnificent specimen of a book. It begins with an autobiographical architectural timeline from 1981 to 1996 of his early work and influences (including former employers Superstudio and Morphosis). Two sketchbook interludes are so tangibly shown, starting with the cover of worn leather, after which page spreads unfold at a scale assuring the verisimilitude of holding them yourself. The second part delves into 34 projects represented by text, photos, sketches, drawings, renderings, and inspirational imagery that impart the spirit of each project. A bold line runs through the book—both physically printed on the pages and spiritually in its context—emphasizing Saee’s consistent vision that architecture must address the body and the soul.
