Hal Box at the 2007  Texas Book Festival

Former Dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin, and author of multiple books on architecture, Hal Box has taught and practiced architecture for 50 years. Think Like an Architect is a group of letters to Box’s friends and colleagues in which the author discusses everything from what architecture should be, how to appreciate buildings, how to understand the design process, how to work with an architect, and even how to become an architect. "My purpose is to communicate ways to give the necessary care to designing buildings," Box has written, "as well as the environment around them." Filled with an array of stunning pictures, complex blueprints, and advice from an expert, Think Like an Architect will help the reader do just that.
