For the architect or designer who wants to take the pulse of the educational design field, this publication is a one-stop resource. It is a colourful volume that contains in-depth profiles and project information on approximately thirty educational buildings throughout North America, ranging in size, program, sitting, construction materials and use. The projects profiled represent some of the latest trends in design for educational buildings, and the text provides an overview of where the field is heading. Each project profile contains information on the client's needs and how the design meets those demands. The book was compiled and written by architect and critic Michael J. Crosbie, author of best-selling Architecture for the Gods (the Images Publishing Group, 2001).
