Building Community / Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

If you have enjoyed the Eskew+Dumez+Ripple (EDR) projects we have featured then this is the book for you. With stunning photography and informative text, this book examines not only an architect’s physical impact on the built landscape, but also her/his role as a community builder and shaper of human experience. The projects showcased throughout this book illustrate EDR’s commitment to the community in both small and large scale projects.

More after the break.
