Washington, DC— In his three decades as an architect, author, educator, and philosopher Travis Price has developed a modern architecture informed by ecology mythology that restores the spirit of place to modern design.
In his new book, "The Archeology of Tomorrow : Architecture and the Spirit of Place," (Earth Aware Editions, November 2, 2006), Price’s insights into our collective past and personal ongoing work offer an inspired and redefined view of the heritage and potential emerging architecture. His visionary questions speak to the heart of where the built environment is going and our responsible place within it. Guided by a humanist-based perspective and desire for sustainability that honors nature and culture, The Archeology of Tomorrow follows Price’s quest for the mythic modern while offering inspiration for reinvigorated architecture of the 21st Century. Price’s exciting and achievable vision architecture’s future asks all of us to think in new ways about our living environment.
