The architect, educator, and renowned urban designer Ray Gindroz shares over two decades of experiences of place through drawing. Accompanied by concise yet charmingly anecdotal and informative commentary, this extraordinary collection of over 500 travel sketches invites us to discover the hidden language that buildings speak, one deeply rooted in both history and the human experience.

With each step down a street, through a doorway, or into a courtyard, we are guided by Gindroz’s visionary understanding of urbanism and inspired to nurture our own connection to the built environment around us.

For those for whom travel is no longer a journey, but merely getting as quickly as possible from one destination to the next, this book will help them appreciate the value of slowing down to enjoy, perhaps even sketch, and be reminded of the rich experience of the places and spaces in between destinations.
