ON THE COVER:
The portfolio of Robert A.M. Stern, FAIA, who is this yea's honoree of the Bybee Prize, illustrates the New York architect is a proponent of natural stone. For 15 Central Park West — a mixed-use residential and retail building in Manhattan — Empire Indiana limestone was selected for the exterior facade because of its warm coloring and to complement existing New York architecture. The traditional masonry expression of the exterior accommodates large windows that, together with projecting bays, French balconies and deep terraces at the setbacks, fill the residences with natural light and open the rooms to views in all directions. Learn more about Stern's philosophies about working with stone beginning on page 12 of this issue of Building Stone Magazine.
