Applying cutting-edge analysis and three decades of experience as an architect, philosopher, and educator, the renowned design pioneer Travis Price presents a visually rich and thought provoking view into the worlds of design, architecture, and modern life. The Archaeology of Tomorrow offers an innovative perspective on the enduring nature of design and architecture, identifying the principles of the "mythic modern" and employing the "three lenses of architecture"; to define the natureof design through the influence and inspiration of architect Frank Gehry, sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, and mythologist Joseph Campbell. Travis Price is a multiple award-winning architect and innovator in environmentally sound architecture. A former consultant for the Carter administration on alternative energy policy, he is credited with coining the term "passive solar". Price designed the world's largest solar office building - TVA's one million square foot complex, planned new urbanist town developments from Virginia to Uganda, designed an array of stunning individual residences, commercial properties and institutional monuments, and created a line of furniture. He has received numerous AIA design awards, been featured in several films and television programs, and is widely published in journals and books internationally. www.TravisPriceArchitects.com
