Studio Gang: Architecture - Up in the Canopy

"With its food, protection, and prospects for productive exchange, it’s no wonder that the tree canopy is an appealing dwelling place for so many species. For humans, though, it holds a special place in our imagination." ⁠

In Up in the Canopy, Jeanne Gang describes the biological diversity and enigmatic experience of the treetops—and how architecture can learn from it.

Studio Gang: Architecture is now available for purchase at an independent bookstore near you, or online at Phaidon.
