Doug Patt, an architect and the author of the book, ‘How to Architect’, teaches about architecture through the use of videos, drawings, books, stories etc. He shared with us his book and a video about being and becoming an architect, which was just released by MIT Press earlier this year. Available globally, this is great for students considering the field or studying architecture. This is also beneficial for architects who want to remember why they became one.
In the book, Patt creatively transforms the word ‘architect’ from a noun to a verb. He presents to readers the basics of architecture with chapters A-Z and takes you on a journey into how architects think from design and construction jargon to characteristics, such as ‘quirky’ and ‘zeal’. A video and a brief review of the book after the break.
