The Guthrie Theater designed by Jean Nouvelle is situated on the banks of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis Minnesota.
The book chronicles its construction over two years from parking lot to award winning theater.
The collection consists of three books: that start with the old theater and tracks the progress from ground breaking through completion.
The third book is a record of the cantilever that juts out and over the river.
The books are combined into a container that roughly represents the floor plan of the theater complete with the cantilever which pulls out of the box.
