The Shedworker's Bookshelf - The BLDGBLOG Book

While this is not strictly a book about sheds, garden offices or indeed microarchitectural gems, I think this is a volume that every shedworker should buy (or at least own). Based on Geoff Manaugh's BLDGBLOG, this is architectural philosophy and speculation at its most lively and accessible - not least because there are lots of cracking pictures. It's hard to pin down exactly what the book is about (there are chapters on redesigning the sky as well as audio architecture) because it's about anything and everything to do with construction and the future of architecture, all chopped up into tasty bite-sized reading nibbles: throw away all those little jokey books you have in your toilet for visitors to read and put this in their place. Pleasant, intelligent and thoughtprovoking, it's all about considering the built atmosphere which we inhabit and which we can choose to inhabit, something that is dear to all shedworkers. This is Shedworking's book of the year 2009.
