...Elegant Designs in Publishing

Booster Kuester and Beyond

Harold Cooler's latest book recalls his experiences as an architect in Charlotte during the critical years of Charlotte's growth from 1947-1997. The book includes over 70 photographs and brief narratives of influential people he worked with, as well as many of the commercial and residential buildings he designed during this explosive period in the Queen City's growth.

Harold's peers consider him to be one of the best of the local practitioners of the "art of architecture." In more than 50 years practice in Charlotte, he has consistently produced designs that, though grounded in the rhythms of the classic traditions, have been triumphs of the marriage of a stern pragmatism and bold, innovative style. He credits an indulgent clientele for allowing so much fun in pursuit of his passion. His writing reflects a gratitude for the company of these and other fascinating people he has met along the way.
