Issuu Ruummage

A few weeks ago I discovered Issuu -- "the leading digital publishing platform delivering exceptional reading experiences of magazines, books, catalogs, reports, and more" -- when I was separately sent a preview of a magazine and a new book. Issuu's interface allows one to flip pages, zoom and pan, and download as a PDF file, among other features. At the time I did not explore the rest of the site, though revisiting Issuu recently I clicked on the "Related" sidebar and searched around, finding some decent architecture selections, presented below. In general, though, the architecture-related titles tend to be individual and firm portfolios, with some catalogs, and magazine and book excerpts too. The titles below are full-length books and magazines, a mix of student and professional publications.

[Architectural Design Research, Vol 3, No. 1]

[b>magazine n°13]

[Canadian Architect October 2009]

[Geometry of Design]

[Urban Planning]
