Product description

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.

Author information

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.

Review quote

SARAH RICH, CO-FOUNDER, INHABITATA thousand years from now, looters will comb the rubble of ruined libraries in search of this book to study Manaugh's cubist love stories between humans and the cities they created.
