Blogger Geoff Manaugh is a darling of the new media set in architecture. His blog (bldgblog.blogspot.com) offers a quirky vision of the future of architecture—and now it’s a book, complete with blog excerpts, new essays, and images concerning architecture, landscape, and the built environment in general. The book’s 272 pages encompass five chapters, with names that capture Manaugh’s vision: Architectural Conjecture, Urban Speculation; The Underground; Redesigning the Sky; Music Sound Noise; and Landscape Futures.
