And for many architects, the beginning of that process involves none other than simple pencil and paper for jotting down those ideas, notes, and sketches to inspire the next project.</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/vd/vdwxb4lkadk5ak1u.jpg" title=""></p> <p> <a href="http://arcnct.co/12DtyaY" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Inspiration and Process in Architecture</a>, published by Moleskine&reg; and curated by Francesca Serrazanetti and Matteo Schubert, is a growing collection of "notebooks" that reveal the creative process of some of the most notable figures in contemporary architecture. Each notebook contains critical essays, an interview with the architect, and a multi-media "Drawings" section that includes the architect's design materials and images taken right from their personal notebooks.</p> <p> We are excited to be giving away five Moleskine notebooks from the collection!
