This summer, ArchitectureBoston gives readers a reason to linger in their hammocks a little longer and drift away into the world of architecture and design. The new issue contains extensive and insightful suggestions for book lovers looking to build a personal library of new and important titles. Read on for more information.
Books’ highlights include:
- An article on the business of art and architecture publishing
- An essay on font design
- A remark on the enduring architecture of libraries
- A trio of “themed” book reviews on particular architecture and urban planning topics, including fiction, and children’s books about architecture
- A special feature by Robert Pinsky, professor of English, Boston University, and former poet laureate of the United States
Jay Wickersham FAIA, professor in practice, Harvard’s Graduate School of Design; Anne Whiston Spirn, professor of landscape architecture and planning, MIT; John Gallagher, architecture critic for the Detroit Free Press and author of Revolution Detroit: Strategies for Urban Reinvention; and Russell Maret, a private press printer and self-taught type designer working in New York City.
ArchitectureBoston is where design and society meet. A quarterly publication of the Boston Society of Architects, ArchitectureBoston explores the ways in which architecture influences and is influenced by our environment and our culture. The magazine is distributed to all BSA members, AIA members throughout New England, allied professionals (engineers, landscape architects, interior designers, and lawyers), members of the construction industry, community and business leaders, politicians and policymakers, design schools, public libraries, media representatives, and subscribers. It can also be purchased at select independent bookstores. For more information, visit www.architects.org/architectureboston/books
