"SOUNDINGS completes John Hejduk's trilogy, which includes MASK OF MEDUSA and VLADIVOSTOK. In this volume, the alliance between the two meanings of "soundings" the act of emitting sound, or interpreting, and the act of plumbing the depths, or exploring offers the creation of an entirely new architectural language, one concerned with geometry, space, and time. Hejduk renews architecture's vocabulary through an extensive working and reworking of its most basic forms. His explication is represented by seventy-three exploratory architectural projects for a wide range of building programs: the Institute for Perspective Investigations, the House/Studio for the Potsdam Printer, and the Library for Books on Heaven and Hell. The works are elucidated by Hejduk's own poems, poetry cycles, and narratives.

Throughout a lifetime of commitment to the meaning and the spirit of architectural thought, as an expanding universe moving deeper and deeper into space and into the unknown, Hejduk has investigated the discipline of architecture. He rejects a myopic view of architecture for one in which the architect enters into a social contract with the spirit of open expression that protects the freedom of thought and the freedom to explore, and he believes that the last bastion of this freedom is education." - from the dust jacket flap
