On October 3, 2003, the Liberty Bell Center, the new home of the Liberty Bell, was opened to the public. The building, designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, is one of the highlights of Philadelphia's reconfigured Independence Mall. This book offers a close look at the building. It presents an extensive set of reproductions and photographs, including records of the design and building process, that thoroughly document the building and its surroundings. The book also features essays that flesh out the building's rich context and its historical background. They include insiders' accounts of the design process as well as critical maps of the constellation of forces that come into play in shaping a building of this significance and quality.
"We’ve worked with Pablo Mandel for several years on various book projects and most recently on Bohlin Cywinski Jackson The Nature of Circumstance, published by Rizzoli in May 2010. Pablo is a terrific and energetic designer who brings extraordinary graphic design skills to the entire process. He developed a structure for the book that accommodates a variety of architectural material, from evocative conceptual sketches to photography and essays, visually linking them in an intuitive yet thoughtful way. Pablo has a thorough and grounded understanding of architecture and presents drawings and images in a graphic style that supports the conceptual ideas and tectonic aspects of the project. On a personal level, he has an extremely collaborative nature and is a pleasure to work with."
