CULTURE HISTORY LINKS LITERATURE MONOGRAMS PHILOSOPHY PRACTICE PRIMERS STEWARDSHIP THEORY

Designers fortunate to have traveled and read extensively draw from a profoundly enriched foundation in their work, and intellectually curious architects tend to cultivate extensive libraries over time. Certain favored selections in our collection, initially posted here by client request, seem to repeatedly weave their way into our conversations and internal reflections, especially during early stages of projects when focus is not yet designing, but researching. The frequency and value of our return to these voices is the main criteria by which they are included here; the list is idiosyncratic and personal, and in many cases one book spans several categories.

CULTURE

Diverse authors discussing social and cultural aspects of the design of the built environment.

HISTORY

One trait common to great architects I have known is a broad and deep understanding of history in general and architectural history in particular.

LINKS

Online resources of potential interest.

LITERATURE

Fictional choices that, resonate with architectural thinking.

MONOGRAMS

Showcases and case studies of the works of particularly noteworthy individuals and firms.

PHILOSOPHY

An eclectic collection reflecting the many ways the work of philosophers is relevant to architects, and vica versa.

PRACTICE

Resources for project management, research, and programming.

PRIMERS

Basic overviews of various specific architectural subjects.

STEWARDSHIP

Particularly noteworthy writing concerned with issues of global, regional, and local environmental thoughtfulness.

THEORY

Of the many excellent works available, these are the most well worn and currently active selections in our library.
