12 Days of Architecture: Two #GiveADamn Books

by Architecture for Humanity
January 1, 2013

Well, it's almost the end of our homage to the "12 Days of Christmas," where Architecture for Humanity has been sharing 12 of our favorite moments of 2012. 
On May 1, the long-awaited follow-up to the 2006 Design Like You Give a Damn book hit the shelves—and is bigger and (arguably) better than the original. "DLYGAD2," as it's known in house, covers over 100 projects by our peers in the world of humanitarian design—and includes project follow-ups from Volume 1, a six-year retrospective of Architecture for Humanity by Cameron Sinclair, and an essay on financing sustainable community development by Kate Stohr.
So, it's less of a coffee table book and more of a coffee table manual, much like its predecessor.
You can read more about these volumes, and about other great gifts for any season, at our store.
