New Book Features Judaic Work of Architect and Artist Kenneth Treister

By Ana Veciana-Suarez
Book cover
Internationally recognized architect and artist Ken Treister’s touch can be found all over his hometown of Miami, but until recently his soaring, daring designs had not been collected in a book to do them justice. Now a long-awaited volume highlights some of Treister’s most notable works in a gorgeous art book with short essays by the architect and photos by architectural photographer Laszlo Regos. The Fusion of Architecture and Art: The Judaic Work of Kenneth Treister (Books & Books Press, $30) presents six of his projects spanning four decades, five of them immediately recognizable to even the most recent Miamian.
