A few weeks ago I decided to start giving away books featured on this blog, starting with a copy of the catalog and activity guide from this year’s Exhibit Columbus, New Middles, which I sent to the first person who correctly answered a trivia question about that Midwestern bastion of modern architecture.

Today I'm giving away a copy of Raw Earth as a Construction Material, a technical guide to compressed earth blocks by LEVS architecten, the Dutch firm that has realized many buildings with CEBs. Similarly, the recipient will be based on correctly answering a bit of trivia.
The venue for the giveaways is this blog's weekly newsletter, which goes out (almost) every Sunday at 11am EST. If you're not already signed up for the newsletter — it's free, by the way — you can do so right here. And if you subscribe via Gmail, be sure to check your promo folder, as Google has a way of pushing newsletters like mine into that version of purgatory.

Note: Due to the prohibitive cost of sending books overseas, I can only send giveaway books to addresses in the United States. My apologies to people outside of the US; if this situation changes in the future I'll let that be known in the newsletter.
