The books on my list represent a group of people and things that have influenced my approach to design over the past 30 years—from childhood memories to the magic of theater to some extraordinarily creative individuals.

Luis Barragán

When my parents moved our family to Guadalajara, Mexico, I started to realize the excitement and potential of life in public spaces. Luis Barragan’s use of color, craft and light in his buildings in Mexico are permanently imprinted in my mind.

Dennis Crompton

One of the things that led me to the Architectural Association in London was Archigram’s work. I particularly love Peter Cook’s Plug-in-City, his futuristic vision for an urban infrastructure that can continuously rebuild and reinvent itself to meet the needs of its inhabitants.

Eames Demetrios
Gloria Fowler Editor
Steve Crist Editor

The design process and work of one of the greatest collaborative design teams of the 20th century, Charles and Ray Eames, is presented in a beautiful, lovingly made tome reminiscent of their slideshows.

John Loring

A comprehensive look at the prolific career of one of my favorite designers whose profound interest in theater drove his architectural work.
