A Manual of Anti-Racist Architecture Education
A Manual of Anti-Racist Architecture Education is an unprecedented tool that centers architecture and architectural education in the struggles against racism and the material legacy of white supremacy.
A valuable resource for designers, educators, students, and anybody who’s lives are affected by the built and destroyed environment, this anti-racist manual unveils how architecture and architectural education is shaped by the construction of race and outlines ways to imagine emancipatory architectures. Divided in three parts, the manual discusses economic, cultural, political, spatial, and historical hurdles that must be overcome before, during, and after school. An appendix presents an overview on the precarious labor of anti-racist education.
Through diagrams, analytical texts, and manifestos, A Manual of Anti-Racist Architecture Education asks many questions about the current state of architecture and imagines a future centered on social and ecological justice.
Written, illustrated, and designed by architects, educators, and authors Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski of WAI Architecture Think Tank, A Manual of Anti-Racist Architecture Education is equally a tool for activism, design education, and worldmaking.

Universal Principles of Architecture: 100 Archetypes, Methods, Conditions,Relationships, and Imaginaries
Universal Principles of Architecture illustrates in 100 concepts the importance, possibilities, challenges, and roles that architecture plays in shaping the world.
Divided into Archetypes, Methods, Conditions, Relationships, and Imaginaries, each of the five sections in the book introduces in 20 principles architecture at different scales and stages of the design process. Through an inclusive and holistic approach, the book refers to initial design ideas, creative design approaches, reflections on the effects of the built and destroyed environments, and architectural desires and aspirations to transform the world and engage with the cosmos.
Because architecture is the converging point where many fields of knowledge, ideas, forms, approaches, methods, sensibilities, and materials meet, the book provides a flexible and dynamic space where the material, conceptual, and social take shape.
Written, illustrated, and designed by critically acclaimed architects, educators, and authors Cruz Garcia and Nathalie Frankowski of WAI Architecture Think Tank, Universal Principles of Architecture combines accessible writing with otherworldly images like the ones they have displayed in exhibitions at the Centre Pompidou Metz, Museum of Modern Art New York, Neues Museum Nuremberg, and Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology Lisbon.
Intended as an intergenerational and transdisciplinary reference volume, the book presents an ambitious overview of what architecture has been and can be in a world full of urgent challenges and abundant opportunities for social and ecological responsibility, and design creativity.
The titles in the Rockport Universal series offer comprehensive and authoritative information and edifying and inspiring visual examples on multidisciplinary subjects for designers, architects, engineers, students, and anyone who is interested in expanding and enriching their design knowledge.
