New expanded edition of this popular gift title. "Why is it really that architects wear black?" was a question put to Cordula Rau so she decided to find out. One hundred contemporary architects, designers and draftsmen explain why architects wear black. This collection of handwritten explanations in an A6-format notebook contains statements by Peter Eisenman, Francoise-Helene Jourda, Jaques Herzog, Rem Koolhaas and many others.In 2008, this collection of autographs appeared as a small publication - obviously bound in black. For the purpose of the new edition, this legendary collection was expanded by new notable, amusing, pragmatic, and quirky reasons: "Please read - and don't ask me why architects wear black!".
