First of all, what the hell is UPS doing ringing the doorbell at 9pm? Whatever. The man in brown came through bigtime when he handed me the freshly printed BLDGBLOG book that I pre-ordered back in January. Been waiting for this for months and it doesn’t look like I’ll be disappointed.
If you’ve never visited Geoff Manaugh’s amazing website, BLDGBLOG, stop reading and go there now. See you in a few days.
The book is 250 plus pages and is divided into five sections: “Architectural Conjecture, Urban Speculation”, “The Underground”, “Redesigning the Sky”, “Music Sound Noise”, and “Landscape Futures”. The design and layout are solid with lots of photos, maps, and other eye candy to supplement the writing. On flipping through I recognized pictures from some of my favorite past posts and it will be interesting to see how everything flows together in book form.
