(Another) Book Release!
Pardon me tooting my own horn (again), but today, June 29, 2021, is the official US release date for Buildings in Print: 100 Influential & Inspiring Illustrated Architecture Books, published by Prestel.
This, my seventh book, is a visual survey of a hundred architecture books published over roughly the last century, from Le Corbusier’s influential Towards a New Architecture to a number of books published this century, such as Project Japan by Rem Koolhaas et. al., Atlas of Another America by Keith Krumwiede, and X-Ray Architecture by Beatriz Colomina.
Organized into nine thematic chapters (manifestos, histories, monographs, etc.), the book features brief descriptions on each of the books and photographs I took of the covers and some interior spreads. A few architects, educators, and critics generously donated their “Top 10” lists of architecture books, giving readers even more inspiration than my selection of 100 allows.
The book was beautifully designed by Barbara Glauber/Heavy Meta. Here are a few peeks inside:
Here are a couple super-nice endorsements from the back cover:
