Brininstool + Lynch: Making Architecture
The Racine Art Museum (RAM) applauds the thirtieth anniversary of Chicago-based Brininstool + Lynch, the architectural firm that designed RAM’s building, which opened in 2003. In celebration of this anniversary, Brininstool + Lynch has produced with Monacelli Press, the book Brininstool + Lynch: Making Architecture, which provides an overview of the firm’s award-winning output since 1989. RAM’s building is featured on the book’s cover jacket.
RAM is among the select built works highlighted in the book. The museum in downtown Racine, Wisconsin was designed by Racine native Brad Lynch, and conceived around RAM’s nationally significant collection of crafts in ceramic, fiber, glass, metal, polymer, and wood. Making Architecture also features city and country houses in Illinois and Indiana; sophisticated single-family homes; and multi-unit residential buildings that explore their urban scale and contexts. For thirty years, the firm distinguished itself through buildings and interiors whose beauty lies in their restraint: spare, smart structures that manipulate light, space, and a simple material palette to create architecture of unusual grace. Brininstool + Lynch: Making Architecture showcases the signature works of this prestigious firm.
