New Media for Designers + Builders, by Steve Mouzon, published in September 2013, is an electronic book, for anyone who designs: planners, architects, engineers, landscape architects, interior designers, and other creatives. It’s also for anyone who builds: developers, contractors, home builders, and tradespeople of all stripes, plus allied disciplines like real estate. In short, it’s for those who work more often in the world of bricks-and-mortar than clicks-and-orders. (More info here).
The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) Atlanta will welcome Mr. Mouzon as the featured guest at its annual Winter Luncheon. The gathering will take place December 19, 2013 at The Shed at Glenwood Park from 12 to 2pm.
