Steve Badanes, Jim Adamson et John Ringel pensent que le rôle de l'architecte ne se limite pas à la conception du bâtiment mais doit également s'étendre à sa construction. Depuis près de cinquante ans, Jersey Devil, le groupe qu'ils ont fondé en 1972 continue de s'affirmer autour de cette règle éthique : l'architecte a davantage sa place sur le site que devant sa planche à dessin. Le trio, pionnier dans la pratique du "dessiner/construire" a conçu plus d'une centaine d'ouvrages.


Steve Badanes, Jim Adamson, and John Ringel believe an architect's job does not stop at designing a building, but that it extends to constructing it as well. Now working into their fifth decade, Jersey Devil, the loose-knit group they founded in 1972, bands together under this design/build ethos that an architect's place is just as much on the job site as it is at the drawing board. The trio pioneered design/build practice and their in uence has spawned more than one hundred design/build programs.

Jersey Devil's process and expertise are unpacked in this Architecture Brief, providing students and teachers with a toolkit for design/build education. Through stories, didactic commentary, and sample exercises, the Design/Build complements nuts-and-bolts content with Jersey Devil's philosophy and perspective, allowing the book to impart practical instruction while acting as a valuable guide for navigating the elusive challenges of design/build. Themes touch on socially responsible architecture, intuition and intentionality, detailing and fostering craftsmanship, group work and collaboration, o -the-shelf components and nonstandard applications, educational reform, ethos and risk, good life and play, the politics of building, and university-community relations.
