This stunning volume--generously illustrated with landscape photographs by Wyoming-based photographer Edward Riddell--features an in-depth look at the award-winning Craig Thomas Discovery & Visitor Center at the Grand Teton National Park in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Completed in 2007 by the architectural firm of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, it combines the National Park Service tradition of rusticity with an architecture that is distinctly contemporary. Riddell's photographs capture the park's rugged alpine landscape and diverse array of wildlife--which attract more than two million visitors every year, making it one of the most popular national parks in the U.S. This landscape is exquisitely framed by the center's spacious, meditative courtyard, which opens onto an expansive view of the Teton Range that is echoed by the jagged, upward-tilting roof. Encompassing both stillness and drama, the building echoes and amplifies the surrounding landscape. The book also includes commentary by architect Tom Kuding and naturalist Harvey H. Kaiser.
