Revealing Profiles of California Architects This book chronicles the careers of 25 successful California architects through their rise (and fall, at times). Via interviews and original portraits, Kennedy tells their stories - complete with key decisions, philosophies of business and lessons learned. Featured architects include Art Gensler, Ray Kappe, Steven Ehrlich, Stephen Kanner and Lauren Rottet. The book is unique in that it tells the stories of the innovators behind the buildings, instead of just focusing on their designs. It's a perfect read for the architect, designer or landscape architect who wants inspiration to grow their own firm. The book includes profiles of architects at various size firms based in San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego.
