Draw Me a House is a playbook for budding architects and anyone interested in the built environment. Illustrated by Thibaud Herem, it celebrates the primary delights of architecture, inviting people of all ages to color in, doodle, think about, and engage with basic architectural elements.
Both educational and entertaining, Draw Me a House takes the reader on a journey through architectural styles, from Gothic church spires to contemporary eco-design and out the other side to the world of outright fantasy. From completing the columns on the Parthenon and thinking up an alternative top to the Chrysler Building to drawing a deluxe doghouse and designing a transport system for the year 2040, this book serves as a springboard for the imagination — a fresh and playful source of stimulation and inspiration.
Herem's beautiful drawings have a warmth and humor that jumps off the page, and the ideas have an equal lightness of touch. Printed on a heavy, creamy, uncoated paper that begs to be doodled upon and colored in, and sporting a laser-cut cover that highlights its tactile appeal, Draw Me a House is a book that will delight children and adults alike.
