Nicholas de Monchaux is an architect, urbanist, writer, and Assistant Professor of Architecture & Urban Design at UC Berkeley. I love learning about people like him because they vary the landscape of what a designer is supposed to be.
The topic of his latest book, Spacesuit: Fashioning Appolo, is especially interesting since I grew up in Cape Canaveral. I saw the Challenger explode in my my front yard.
An in-depth interview is on BLDGBLOG. All images were snagged from there.
