MARYLAND’S LIGHTHOUSES by Cathy Taylor is a celebration of the lighthouses that have been built in Maryland since Colonial times when the Chesapeake Bay and larger rivers became vital shipping channels.

ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL: Three Centuries of Educating Architects in North America edited by Joan Ockman “goes well beyond the story of Beaux-Arts to Bauhaus to reveal how architecture education took shape as a modern discipline and system of professional preparation.” The first comprehensive history of this subject ever published, it includes contributions by three dozen scholars including our own 2011 AIABaltimore president Ruth Connell, AIA, of Morgan State University. MIT Press, 2011, hard cover, $50.
