The 2004 edition of the Almanac of Architecture & Design will be released in January 2004. The 5th edition contains all the information you’ve learned to rely upon as well as many vital additions. Since its launch in 2000, architects, interior designers, landscape architects and industrial designers have used the book described by Norman Koonce, CEO of The American Institute of Architects, as “the essential and definitive tool for architecture and design facts.” Prospective design students rely on the Almanac as one of the few guides for ranking architectural higher education programs. The IIDA’s Perspective magazine calls the Almanac “a useful tool—as well as an interesting read—for any professional designer.”
Among the new features for the 5th edition are a list of significant U.S. art museums and their architectural history; a new chapter devoted exclusively to sustainable/green design; and timelines that highlight the benchmark events and people in historic preservation, the green movement, and women in architecture. The speeches and essays chapter is greatly expanded with contributions from The New Yorker’s architecture critic Paul Goldberger, urban planning authority Léon Krier, and AIA President Thom Penney. For readers outside the field, we provide information about how to hire an architect or interior designer.
Updated old favorites include obituaries of design leaders and patrons from the last year and the latest winners of the most prestigious award programs. The volume is highly illustrated, including photos of winning projects and notable people. Graphs and charts supplement the statistical information, including architecture school demographics, nationwide design firm statistics, and an analysis of architects across the country. The Design Education chapter for students contains even more resources than ever before about student and faculty award programs, student associations, and which schools offer what degrees.
