Words & Building
Designing and writing about it has been a fruitful dynamic: Vitruvius defined aesthetics in antiquity that became the Bible of the Renaissance, the Arts & Crafts movement found direction in the writings of Elbert Hubbard, and “From Our House to Bauhaus” by Tom Wolfe changed the way people looked at architects and architecture. But what has happened to this relationship in the era of New Media?
Binnie Klein & Duo Dickinson took on the topic of design, designers who write, and writing about design with two world class practitioners: Pat Pinnell is an architect who has written the definitive guide to the architecture at Yale http://www.amazon.com/Yale-University-Architectural-Campus-Guide/dp/1616890649/ref=pd_sim_14_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=419UkKAyBXL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR101%2C160_&refRID=0ZT9R2N1728VCB43HPSG and Fred Bernstein graduated from Princeton’s architecture school and has written about architecture for 30 years, most recently for the New York Times and Architectural Record http://www.fredbernstein.com/articles/
