Craig Hodgetts’s Book List

I look to writers, especially those who deal with the form of writing itself, to open doors to the infinite number of ways to structure and assess the world, and particularly the processes and concepts that animate and motivate us as humans. I don’t look at them as “source books” but rather as indicators of how one might think about and relate to the incredibly diverse surroundings with which we interact on a daily basis. I am at heart an eclectic individual, with an appetite for nearly everything I encounter, so this list is likewise eclectic and unstructured.

Norman Bel Geddes

The futuristic, Popular Science magazine-style images created by Bel Geddes were built on a solid foundation of design fundamentals and bravely negotiated the line between fantasy and reality, demonstrating a quick grasp of urban design, aeronautical engineering, and architecture only equaled by Le Corbusier on the other side of the world. His facility in creating a practical, if sadly unrecognized, template for a romantic, heroic environment continues to inspire me.
