Stan Allen was the 2012-13 Herbert Baumer Distinguished Visiting Professor.</p> <p>Benjamin Wilke,&nbsp;editor of the Source Books in Architecture series, indicates the focus of this book has a slightly expanded focus. Rather than focus on a single project, this book documents projects that were discussed during Allen&rsquo;s seminar as well as the theoretical position that Allen began to articulate with&nbsp;<em>Field Conditions</em>&nbsp;in 1996. Wilke states, &ldquo;Field Conditions has continued to provide an opportunity to test a set of ideas against contemporary stresses and concerns.

The BAC spoke with two of the students, Heather Cunningham and Noah Geupel, both masters of architecture candidates, about their Resilient Lynn project and how it felt to be part of an exhibit.</p> <p><strong>How did this particular project come about, specifically looking at the city of Lynn?</strong></p> <p><strong>Noah:</strong> Arlen and Tyler came up with the idea to use Lynn's waterfront district (Southeast of Route 1A) as the project site.

After responding to a&nbsp;<a href="https://www.dwell.com/discuss/general-discussion/advice-for-a-future-architect-21c7c7a4" target="_blank">hopeful architect on Dwell.com&nbsp;</a>I decided to flesh out my answer and include more books.</p><p>Here is a list for you, broken down into categories. Naturally there is some overlap and some of these books could fit in multiple headings, this is architecture after all.
