Spirit of Place (Tra Publishing) - Oppenheim Architecture


Oppenheim Architecture’s Spirit of Place is a poetic rumination on how architecture connects with the earth. This first published monograph of the work of Chad Oppenheim and his studio takes the reader to a world where boundaries are blurred between nature and architecture, heightening our awareness of the beauty that surrounds us.  Through passion and sensitivity towards man and nature, Oppenheim creates monumental yet silent work that invokes a site’s inherent power.

The unique format and more than 500 strikingly beautiful images transport the reader into the world that Oppenheim crafts, celebrating their belief that “form follows feeling.”

"Like an archeologist, we try to uncover the truth of a site. Searching for an architecture that becomes one with its surroundings while amplifying the connection to place." – Chad Oppenheim
