Design on the Edge: A Century of Teaching Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, 1903-2003

Design on the Edge, edited by Waverly Lowell, Elizabeth Byrne, and Betsy Frederick-Rothwell, is an engaging and thoughtful review of the first one hundred years of architectural education at UC Berkeley. The illustrated monograph of approximately 370 pages combines scholarly essays written by faculty about the development, contributions, and future of the program; reflections of faculty, staff, and alumni about their experiences here; a color portfolio of a century of student drawings; and appendices of architecture faculty, chairs and deans. It will be enjoyed by alumni, students, faculty, architectural historians, and the general public.
