I have a review of Alison Isenberg’s Designing San Francisco in this month’s Landscape Architecture Magazine. It’s my first work for them and I got unexpectedly excited at having to contribute one of those little blurb-and-headshot combinations to go at the front of the magazine. 

Before reading Isenberg’s work, I would have been happy to attribute the scene below to Lawrence Halprin; now, I’m not nearly so sure. Being surely unsure is pretty much what I look for from a book. Even better, I now know a lot more about a fascinating network of preservationists, model-makers, and property developers who cut across the grains of our usual professional stories. LAM has considerately posted the review online here - check it out!
