New books about libraries


We've added a couple of new books to GSA library stock about libraries which have caught my eye, given students' current interest in library design. The first, 'How green is my library?', by Sam McBane Mulford, explains how to evaluate the 'greenness' of existing or planned facilities. The second, 'Unpacking my library: architects and their books', by Jo Steffens, offers an intimate look at the personal libraries of 14 of the world's leading architects, including Steven Holl. Full details of both books are, of course, on the GSA Library catalogue.
