BEAUTIFUL USERS: DESIGNING FOR PEOPLE By Ellen Lupton
In the mid-twentieth century, Henry Dreyfuss—widely considered the father of industrial design—pioneered a user-centered approach to design that focuses on studying people's behaviors and attitudes as a key first step in developing successful products. In the intervening years, user-centered design has expanded to undertake the needs of differently abled users and global populations as well as the design of complex systems and services. Beautiful Users explores the changing relationship between designers and users and considers a range of design methodologies and practices, from user research to hacking, open source, and the maker culture.

BEAUTY - COOPER HEWITT DESIGN TRIENNIAL
Published by Cooper Hewitt Edited with introduction by Andrea Lipps, Ellen Lupton. Foreword by Caroline Baumann. Interviews by Andrea Lipps, Ellen Lupton, Suvi Saloniemi. Featured image is reproduced from Beauty.Beauty--the book, born out of Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum's 2015 Triennial of the same name, curated by Andrea Lipps and Ellen Lupton--showcases some of the most exciting and provocative design created around the globe during the past three years. These pages aim not to emphasize the hidden beauty in the everyday--a beloved teapot or favorite shoe--but to locate transformational beauty in contemporary design that is exuberant, ethereal, atmospheric, experiential, exceptional or sublime. Sixty-two designers represent a vast range of disciplines from architecture, fashion, digital, graphic, and product design, to interiors, hair, nail and lighting design. The objects featured cause us to take pause, catch our breath and get lost in our pursuit to understand or explain them. Designed by the innovative Kimberly Varella, the book is itself a tactile, fluid and provocative interpretation of beauty. Varella's design provides unexpected points of entry, playing with the concepts of beauty by using reflective surfaces, hot pink thread weaving pages together and a "heart" of the book, from which all else flows. Ethereal, Intricate, Extravagant, Transformative, Transgressive, Elemental and Emergent Beauty are the seven themes. Each section includes the individual designers in conversation with the curators about her or his process and beauty's differing forms, punctuated by rich galleries of their work, generating the ultimate feast for the senses.

CONCRETE PERCEPTION
Concrete Perception: Formalism, Architecture, and Gordon Matta-Clark - Written by Jonathan Dillon and edited by JOAN WALTEMATH & Charles Matz - Johnathan Dillon's Concrete Perception Is a visual and textual dérive which purposefully detours through the problems of formalism in order to develop a specifically architectural understanding of the art of Gordon Matta-Clark. Concerete Perception draws upon theory, history, and production but relies upon observation - upon the idea of architecture as a visual, plastic art - to identify Matta-Clark's drawings and building cuts as examples of architecture's critical self-reflection in which form and space are the radical protagonists.
