LTL Architects is honored, along with Princeton Architectural Press, to be selected for one of ten Awards for the best Architectural Book of the year, from 88 publishers and 214 global entries. 2016 is the eighth time the Frankfurt Book Fair and Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) have bestowed the International DAM Architectural Book Award. The prize, the only one of its kind honors the best architectural books in a year. On September 28, 2016 a jury made up of external experts and representatives of DAM met to select the year’s ten best architectural books of the year. They based their decision on criteria such as design, content, quality of material and finishing, innovation, and topicality. All award-winning books will be presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair from October 20 to 23, 2016 (Hall 4.1, Zentrum Bild, stand K 109).
This morning we got an advanced copy of the Manual of Section.
After many years of work, Manual of Section is complete!
Published by Princeton Architectural Press, Manual of Section provides a conceptional and practical framework for understanding this key technique of architectural representation and design. In this forthcoming book, Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis have developed a new typology of section, demonstrated through sixty-three intricately detailed sectional perspectives of some of the most important buildings from the last hundred years.
