About the Author:

Deborah Berke’s New York City firm, Deborah Berke Partners, has created an extensive body of work with a distinct and lasting character, including a significant portfolio of residential, institutional, and hospitality projects. Berke is the incoming Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, the first woman to hold this post in the 100-year history of the school, where she has taught for 25 years. The award-winning architect’s work has been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest, Dwell, and Architectural Record.

Rick Moody is the author of the novels Garden State, The Ice Storm, and Purple America, among others, as well as The Black Veil: A Memoir with Digressions, which was awarded the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for the Art of the Memoir.

Review:

"a clear and thoughtful explanation of her philosophy, which both design veterans and laypeople can easily grasp and put to use. It is refreshing to find a design book with clear steps and insights into a particular architect’s process. The captions for the photos are helpful poetic summaries of the firm’s basic concepts, and the images explain those concepts in a straightforward way, which also is helpful." – EAST HAMPTON STAR
