  2. June 25, 2018Now available - Listening to Design: A Guide to the Creative Process, by Andrew Levitt LISTENING TO DESIGN cover

    Listening to Design is focused on the inner world of the designer. The book is not concerned with a particular style, formal approach or choice of materials. Instead it is about the way designers can transform the doubts, desires and psychological trials of the creative process into authentic and meaningful design decisions. After many years teaching design to architecture students and also working as a psychotherapist I wanted to share my passion about the powerful way our inner world shapes the built world.
