Architecture Books – Week 04/2022

See these and more recently published and forthcoming architecture books on my blog and on my Bookshop.org page.
I have an extra copy of one of a recently received book, Andrew Witt’s Formulations: Architecture, Mathematics, Culture, published this month by MIT Press in Anyone Corporation’s “Writing Architecture” series. My review is forthcoming, but learn more about the book, described as “an investigation of mathematics as it was drawn, encoded, imagined, and interpreted by architects on the eve of digitization in the mid-twentieth century,” on the publisher’s website. If you live in the U.S. (sorry, overseas shipping is too $$!) and want to win a copy, just reply to this email indicating so; I’ll randomly pick one person on Sunday, January 30.
