An Architect's Pop-Up Book

One of the perks of being a Dwell editor are the various fun surprises that appear in the mail—newly published books, the occasional small product, even the random staple gun (yes, really). One of the more intriguing things to cross my desk recently was Wendy Evans Joseph's unusual monograph, a chunky hardcover book entitled 'Pop Up Architecture.' Yes: a pop-up book illustrating the firms' recent work, from the Holocaust Memorial Garden in Salt lake City to a cantilevered pedestrian bridge in New York City. Here's a peek inside.

 

"When I first considered how to gather and present the firm's work, the conventional monograph-making process struck me as suspect, strangely anachronistic—especially in light of the Web as a more accessible, flexible, and ecological format," writes Joseph in the book's forward. "They say that pictures don't lie, but for architecture they are certainly limited in the truths they can tell. I realized then that the book had to be an artwork in itself, so that it would never be taken for a straight representation of how you experience the built work."
