    The AsBuilt series is dedicated to presenting recent examples of formal and material innovation in architecture through detail and technical drawings, diagrams, photographs, and work-in-progress material, including fabrication and assembly. Details, Technology, and Form, the third volume in the series, explores the genesis of twenty-five projects built in the United States and Canada, many notable for their multi-disciplinary design process. Editors Christine Killory and René Davids have selected buildings which have contributed to the ongoing evolution of architecture as a synthesis of art, engineering, and craft.

Rather they arise from the dialog between multiple designers, clients, regulators, citizens, critics and users. Sometimes the cities and towns that emerge are glorious places. Too frequently they have only fragments of greatness or are soul-deadening and environmentally unhealthy.

  27. The Electric Information Age Book

    By Jeffrey T. Schnapp and Adam Michaels, introduction by Steven Heller, afterword by Andrew Blauvelt

    $22.95
    In Stock
    More Info



    The Electric Information Age Book explores the nine-year window of mass-market publishing in the sixties and seventies when formerly backstage players—designers, graphic artists, editors—stepped into the spotlight to produce a series of exceptional books. Aimed squarely at the young media-savvy consumers of the "Electronic Information Age," these small, inexpensive paperbacks aimed to bring the ideas of contemporary thinkers like Marshall McLuhan, R. Buckminster Fuller, Herman Kahn, and Carl Sagan to the masses. Graphic designers such as Quentin Fiore (The Medium is the Massage, 1967) employed a variety of radical techniques—verbal visual collages and other typographic pyrotechnics—that were as important to the content as the text. The Electric Information Age Book is the first book-length history of this brief yet highly influential publishing phenomenon.
