Architecture Books – Week 26/2021
Last week on A Daily Dose of Architecture Books:
Houses: Vo Trong Nghia & The Work of VTN Architects, published by Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers: “What comes across to me in this book is the amazing diversity of VTN's residential designs, which are all conceptualized as ‘Houses for Trees’ but don't repeat themselves in any discernible way.”
GAM.17: Wood. Rethinking Material edited by Tom Kaden, published by Jovis: “[The] essays […] will help architects take the material's environmental, economic, and political dimensions into account — necessary if timber will be used more and more in the years to come.”
Living the City: Of Cities, People and Stories by Lukas Feireiss, Tatjana Schneider & TheGreenEyl, published by Spector Books: “[The book’s] density of words and images reads like a rapid-fire presentation of ideas focused on, as the title alludes, living in cities.”
Visual Discoveries: A Collection of Sections by Allen Keith Yee, published by ORO Editions: “Given [my love of building sections], Visual Discoveries feels almost like it was compiled and written for me, if not for the fact author Allen Keith Yee lets his own personal interests drive the selection of sections, which also include landscapes, geology, inventions, and the human body.”
It's [June 29,] US #PubDay for "Buildings in Print: 100 Influential & Inspiring Illustrated Architecture Books," my seventh book! Published by @prestelverlag, designed by Barbara Glauber/Heavy Meta, and now available in bookstores.
