The designs of David Hicks are proving to be among the most enduring of the 20th Century. In this book, he concentrates on all aspects of his craft, both residential and commercial, showcasing many of his great projects. The book is mostly illustration, both color and b & w, with exhaustive captions by Hicks expounding upon various ideas and concepts. A standout is his design of an Athens apartment with antique statues suggesting the Olympiad, which are placed on modern pedestals and juxtaposed against a window with dramatic views of the Acropolis.
