But perhaps what's more important is knowing how to write about architecture in a way that is accessible and appealing to non-architectural folks as well, considering that the built environment plays a significant part in shaping people's everyday experiences.</p><p>In relation to this, Yale University lecturer and practitioner Carter Wiseman discusses the process, techniques, and the value of architecture writing in his book, "Writing Architecture: A Practical Guide to Clear Communication About the Built Environment" recently published by <a href="http://tupress.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Trinity University Press</a>.</p><p>If you're eager to get your hands on a copy, now is your chance.
