i was put onto this book today - it's on order but it looks like it could be interesting, especially considering the author (jenn kennedy) is a photographer and journalist more than an architect. the roster of firms that are interviewed - all in southern california - is pretty impressive.
you can check out the site for the book here.
Central to the blog is a long running interest in how we construct practices that enable and promote the kind of work we are all most interested in. From how firms are run, structured, and constructed, the main focus will be on exploring, expanding and demystifying how firms operate. I’ll be interviewing different practices – from startups to nationally recognized firms, bringing to print at least one a month. Our focus will be connecting Archinect readers with the business of practice.
