About the Author

Christopher Curtis Mead, a professor of art and art history at the University of New Mexico, lives in Albuquerque.


"Updated in 2010, The Architecture of Bart Prince: A Pragmatics of Place includes five additional houses that illustrate Prince's growth since the 1999 first edition. More than half the book's pages are filled with detailed renderings and full-color photos of unique homes, . . . all designed by the Albuquerque native whom many consider to be one of the most creative American architects in the field today. . . . A personal friend of Prince's immediate family, . . . [Mead] delves into the fourth-generation New Mexican's ancestry to demonstrate how the family history guided the architect's sense of self." -- Su Casa Magazine
"Fans of architecture and those wishing to learn more about New Mexico's evolving architectural aesthetic will enjoy this book." -- New Mexico Magazine
"[Mead's] well-constructed narrative details Prince's challenges and successes and offers Prince's designs and creative process as a metaphorical mountain meadow in which to alight. This edition includes five projects completed since the first edition in 1999. Penhall's beautifully composed photographs complete the treatise." -- The Albuquerque Journal
"Bart Prince may be the most creative architect practicing in America today. Expanding on approaches initiated by Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff, he celebrates a national tradition of absolute originality. Christopher Mead provides the thoughtful, well-reasoned analysis necessary to understand this work, matching in his enthusiasm the exuberance of Prince's designs." -- David De Long, University of Pennsylvania
"Bart Prince's architecture stands alone today. It is in the Bruce Goff tradition, but Bart is his own person. Christopher Mead's writing gives us insight into the history of place and family that shaped Prince, making him the unique architect that he is. It is an architecturally intelligent book, and is both analytical and perceptive." -- Ray Kappe, FAIA
