An Architect’s Guide

I called my first book “An Architect’s Guide” simply because that’s what I feel it represents. I am an architect and after all these years I can offer some guidance. I am gratified that almost as many builders as designers have found some value in my writings and as members of my groups. This confirms for me that we are allies, not combatants, in the challenges of designing and building.
