This new book on how to design and build homes to withstand disasters is a must-read for the building industry.
Boyce Thompson is the author of three books about residential architecture and construction. In his latest, Designing for Disaster: Domestic Architecture in the Era of Climate Change, published by Schiffer in late September, Thompson writes about how to design and build homes that can withstand the growing threat of hurricanes, flooding, wildfires, landslides, and other natural disasters. The cover calls this the most urgent architectural issue of our time. We caught up with the author recently for an interview.
