News

Outside In: The Architecture of Smith and Williams was published March 1 by Getty Publications.  I contributed a chapter called "No Coincidence: Whitney Smith and Japanese Influences at Midcentury."  (It is not about solar heating.)  The book is available at Amazon here and through the Getty here.
