Award-winning designer Eva Maddox has been described as a "change agent" and a "visionary design theorist and practitioner who has reshaped the interior design profession and raised the standards of commercial design and architecture." This comprehensive monograph traces her creative journey from a tiny town in rural Tennessee to her own renowned firm, Eva Maddox Associates, to a dedicated branding studio within the international architectural practice Perkins + Will. Profusely illustrated with sketches, plans, source material, and color photography, the book includes 35 major projects: colleges, hospitals, financial institutions, company headquarters, libraries, museums, showrooms, and retail establishments, culminating in a series of designs for furniture and workspace giant Haworth. Introductory chapters on Maddox's innovative branding and patterning and a final section on her extensive experience in teaching, including the founding of graduate school Archeworks, complete this review of the career and legacy of an exceptional woman of design. AUTHOR: Romy Wyllie is the author of two books on architecture, Caltech's Architectural Heritage: From Spanish Tile to Modern Stone and Bertram Goodhue: His Life and Residential Architecture, as well as the coauthor and editor of additional titles. She is a professional member of the International Interior Design Association. Wyllie is an Honorary Alumna of Caltech, where she has led a volunteer architectural tour service for thirty-one years.
