Bookmaking Workshop with Phillip Denny

It is almost impossible to imagine architecture without books: from theoretical treatises to construction documents, our field is built one page at a time. Although books are ubiquitous in practice and discourse, architects rarely have the opportunity to engage the book as a format with an architecture of its own. This workshop explores the material, experiential, historical, formal, and social dimensions of the book. A series of short exercises will introduce participants to fundamental bookmaking processes and techniques that make the book a generative medium for architectural thought.
