20 Over 80 collects intimate interview portraits of inspiring and enduring creatives from the fields of architecture and design. Featuring legendary figures from graphic, product, and industrial design, in addition to architecture, advertising, and pedagogy, the book will include a spectrum of talent within these disciplines - many contributors will have seen these professions develop in their lifetimes.
Through an interview format, the authors will conduct conversations with each interviewee to bring historical nuance, daily practice, and iconic moments to the fore.
Each portrait will be accompanied by a mix of archival material and photographs to illustrate the interviewee's career and anecdotal biography.
Potential contributors include: Florence Knoll Bassett, Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi, Seymour Chwast, Frank Gehry, Bob Gill, Milton Glaser, and many others.
