“On Rigor” is the newly released monograph of the work of Johnsen Schmaling Architects, the Milwaukee-based design studio founded by Sebastian Schmaling MAUD ’02. Published by ORO, the book includes an introduction by architectural critic and longtime editor at Architectural Record, Clifford Pearson.

From the publisher: “In a world that fetishizes aesthetic frivolity and iconographic bombast at the expense of substance and nuance, the critically acclaimed work of Johnsen Schmaling Architects stands out for its conceptual rigor, profound simplicity, and quiet repose. Formally restrained and informed by innovative tectonic and material experimentations, Johnsen Schmaling’s precisely crafted architecture creates poetic atmospheres of enduring clarity.”
