Architecture Books – Week 45/2022
The latest review on A Weekly Dose of Architecture Books:
G. E. Kidder Smith Builds: The Travel of Architectural Photography by Angelo Maggi, published by AR+D Publishing.
Architecture Book News:
Big news! Archpaper reports that “Eames Institute acquires San Francisco’s storied William Stout Architectural Books.” The “fledgling” The Eames Institute of Infinite Curiosity is headed by Lisa Demetrios, daughter of Charles and Ray Eames.

Black on beige drawings set Philip Johnson/John Burgee: Architecture 1979–1985, published by @rizzolibooks in 1985, apart from other architectural monographs published around that time.
