Gnostic Architecture is the third of six books that we have produced on the work of architect Eric Moss. It is by far the most investigative of the books—both in content and design—and seeks to showcase Moss’s “way of knowing”. This book is a contemplation on one of Moss’s signature buildings, Samitaur, as seen through the lens of a Henry Moore sculpture (“The Helmet,” 1939-40). Rather than the expected rectangle, the trapezoidal shape of this book suggests the necessity of adjusting ones frame of reference. The shape shifts the interior grid, creating greater complexity in the visual organization of the book’s spread.
