Made a profound impact on me while in design school and thinking about ideas that drive culture and the built environment.
No one talks about design and the designer’s mind more intelligently.
A well-written biography on a flamboyant man in interesting times.
A classic social commentary and then some.
Profound on ideas around social and personal space.
The most comprehensive and well-assembled visual and verbal survey of our most outlandish and prophetic ideas about the future through time.
About being creative and inspirational to those with a creative spirit no matter what your chosen form of expression.
Any writing by this naturalist and writer is a spiritual journey and reminder of how all living things fit together in the universe.
I have read many books about Frank Lloyd Wright, but especially enjoyed this one.
Illustrates in maddening detail the designer’s excruciating fascination with the ordinary as extraordinary.
A vertical slice through the culture of an extraordinarily rich and dynamic time, well researched and beautifully articulated.
I have come back to this book a hundred times as I have thought about community and how we design to foster or destroy it.
The design project to end all design projects, and long before the Internet and Wikipedia. An extraordinary example of participatory design.
I found this a profound guide to living a life of accomplishment—trying to get anything done with other people— as well as an insight into someone I have admired for a long time.
Many things to take away from this wonderfully written and poignant book about the objects men carried into war.
A lifetime of ideas captured in one engaging fable—witty, profound, and prophetic.
