When this book came in, I was immediately transfixed.  We get a lot of books coming through everyday, and when a pretty one comes in, it's a nice break from the policy tomes we see all the time.  But this book goes so far beyond that.  It is way more than pretty pictures.  It's a poetic argument in favor of reinvigorating architecture with a sense of purpose and spirit.  It's a passionate plea from an architect who is seeing our world become increasingly devoid of metaphor and grace. This book is so visually stunning, and the conversation is bound to focus on a lot of the images of the buildings that Travis Price has designed and built.  He was kind enough to let us use some of his images to create a little visual exploration for our blog readers.  Just click here and enjoy! Join us on air or here in the blog to talk about your favorite buildings, what you think about American design today, and whether or not you think our world has lost it's way in terms of design. And don't forget to become or renew your membership!
