Summary
"On January 7, 2010, just days before class was to start, the Los Angeles Times published a fascinating article on contemporary women architects, highlighting a striking building by Jeannie Gang. Earlier this year, the brand new President of Scripps College chose the Genius of Women as her inaugural theme. What serendipity! This gave us the perfect inspiration for our artist book: the genius of women architects. After extensive research and class discussion, a mission statement for the book evolved: Architecture, like books, is a delicate balancing act between stability and motion, interior and exterior, aesthetic values and structural practicalities. Books, like buildings, are fundamentally inhabited spaces. They are incomplete without human interaction"--Kitty Maryatt, introduction

Heather paper from Europe was selected for its natural stone-like colors of oatmeal, sage, charcoal, and mahogany. It was exactly the right stiffness for cut-aways and pop-ups. The tops of the rising sections were hand-cut to suggest a natural landscape where built structures fit into their environment, which changes as you manipulate the book into different configurations ...
