Unboxing New York
I’m also an architect. Oh, you didn’t know? Welp, I wrote a book. So, surely I’m entitled to the inevitable lecture I’ll give you on dormers and setbacks in this city.
Office for Design and Architecture (ODA) is an award-winning New York-based firm known for imaginative designs that challenge modern urban convention. After several years of working together, we embarked on a two-year journey to conceptualize, write, edit, and publish the firm’s first book, a monograph-meets-manual that showcases key projects and shares bold opinions.
I worked directly with ODA Co-Founder and Principal, Eran, as well as six architects to write and edit 25+ essays, plus contributor bios and the usual front and back matter.
We also worked closely with the editors at Original Copy and designers at Studio Lin to complete the book, which has enjoyed multiple print runs through its publisher, Actar.
