Just wanted to see some of Maya's other works. I love the library project. Also, watched her movie - A Stong Clear Vision. She is currently doing a 5 piece project on the Columbia River in Washington State.

Maya Lin's work never fails to disappoint. She's remained one of the true, consistent visionaries of her generation. This catalogue is worth it for the magnificent "2 x 4 (Landscape)" alone (partially visible on the cover).

Another artist I love and want to research more. Her ideas are simple, her forms are stellar and thought provoking.
