This week is a special one for Curbed: our architecture critic, Alexandra Lange—she of Black Mirror home conspiracies, teen space, Late Modernism championing, Museum of Ice Cream takedown, abiding love of A-frames, spy museum review co-authored with her 10-year-old, and much, much more—has a book out.
The Design of Childhood: How the Material World Shapes Independent Kids is being published via Bloomsbury, and is available for sale as of Tuesday, June 12. We are totally biased, of course, but trust us! It’s great.
For more Alexandra, she appeared on NPR’s Weekend Edition, and an excerpt from her book’s “Blocks” chapters was illustrated for a standalone piece. The New York Times Sunday Review published her op-ed on the magic of a cardboard box, and the New Yorker ran her exploration of hidden women in architecture and design.
She’ll also be writing this week for Slate (on sandboxes) and Architect (on schools), and will be interviewed for Architectural Digest (on highchairs). more radio appearances include KCRW in Los Angeles with Frances Anderton and Studio 360 for Public Radio International with Kurt Andersen, plus the Google Design podcast, and the new Failed Architecture podcast. (Did we mention Lange is also possibly the hardest-working critic in the biz?)
