Design / Build with Jersey Devil - A Handbook for Education and Practice
Design/build has progressively influenced the education of architects and designers. Previous publications have focused on products of design/build work. This book instead focuses on how design/build works. It places particular emphasis on the process of teaching design/build, drawing directly from the expertise of Jersey Devil, whose work embodies design/build's ethos. In their fifth decade, the group's collaborators--Steve Badanes, Jim Adamson, and John Ringel--continue to make things, mostly now with students. Their work has influenced a generation of practitioners and educators--Samuel Mockbee cited Jersey Devil as inspiration for establishing Rural Studio. Drawing out the largely untold stories of Jersey Devil's process, these dialogues reconnect the practice of design/build with its teaching.
