For centuries, the intimate relationship between graphic design
and architecture has shaped not only cities and their structures
but also the lives of their inhabitants. In Graphic Design and
Architecture: A 20th-Century History, Richard Poulin tackles the
first historical overview that examines the marriage of graphic
design and architecture in the context of artistic, social, and
cultural movements and influences of the twentieth century.
The new book is intended to serve as a comprehensive reference of visual and narrtive material that illustrates and evaluates this unique history. The author, cofounder, design director and principal of Poulin + Morris in New York CIty, says he hopes that that by reflecting on this marriage, we can derive inspiration and insight for the future. He is, among many other things, a Fellow of the Society of Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD) and past president of the New York chapter of the AIGA. Rockport is the publisher.
