New Greenway Bookstore Open. Joan Capelin’s lead article this month is a chapter excerpt from her book, Communication by Design, one of several new titles available from Ostberg/Greenway Communications. You may shop our store on the Web at: www.di.net/books.
In addition to Capelin’s book, the 2005 edition of The Almanac of Architecture & Design is now available. Since its launch in 2000, design professionals have come to rely on the Almanac for industry information, historical data, and day-to-day reference. Included in the 700+ pages are ideas, essays, speeches and theory. Read what design leaders are saying about their successes and vision of the future. Examine trends in specific building types, or expand your knowledge of benchmark events in the history of the profession. The Sixth edition contains all the facts that architects, interior designers, landscape architects and industrial designers have learned to rely upon (as well as many vital additions).
Highlights include: recent winners of more than 100 national and international award programs; rankings of the world’s tallest buildings, best skylines and most popular buildings; more than 35 entries specifically for current and prospective design students; chapters devoted exclusively to sustainable design and historic preservation; award-winning essays and notable speeches from the past year; historical timelines for “green” design, planning, historic preservation and women in architecture; guides to design bookstores, museums, organizations, journals and magazines; and obituaries of design leaders and patrons from the prior year. DI subscribers receive one free copy and a 20 percent discount off the $49.50 cover price on additional copies.
Finally, former U.S. Ambassador Richard Swett’s new book, Leadership by Design: Creating an Architecture of Trust, will be available early in 2005; pre-orders are being accepted at our bookstore.
