Architecture is more than what makes up our built environment; it is a way of thinking about the world-and beyond. This is the lesson author Geoff Manaugh, creator of the popular website BLDGBLOG, entertainingly communicates in this tour-de-force of architectural speculation and futuristic critique. In five sections that relate to the sprawling, smart, always compelling, and often very funny inquiry that comprise the site-Architectural Conjecture, The Underground, Weather Control, Architectural Music, and Landscape Futures - "The BLDGBLOG Book" will find its place among the legions of hip and literate design-interested readers who are still bored by architecture magazines. Heavily illustrated with fantastic images from prehistory to the outer reaches of space, "The BLDGBLOG Book" is a must-have primer to the future of architectural thought.
Geoff Manuagh is a wunderkind at making his unique, smart, slantwise view of architecture and the world accessible to readers-his site attracts people because it is intellectually rigorous and flat out entertaining all at the same time. His eclecticism, enthusiasm, and humor make him perfectly poised to reach a wide audience.
