Simitch and Warke Publish The Language of Architecture
The Language of Architecture: 26 Principles Every Architect Should Know, by associate professors of architecture Andrea Simitch and Val Warke, was published in June by Rockport Publishers. According to the publisher, the book is intended to provide "students and professional architects with the basic elements . . . [and] includes an introduction to architecture design, an historical view of the elements, as well as an overview of how these elements can and have been used across multiple design disciplines." The 226-page volume includes contributions by current AAP faculty Iñaqui Carnicero, Jenny Sabin, and Jim Williamson; alumni Steven Fong (B.Arch. '78, M.Arch. '82) and David Lewis (M.A. HPP '92); along with K. Michael Hays and Richard Rosa.
