Architect Vs Gamer: BLDGBLOG Cross Pollination


Games are my bread and butter, but there are few other things I obsess over. Such as buildings. One of my favourite blogs on that particular subject is BLDGBLOG, written by Geoff Manaugh. It's an extraordinarily omnivorous survey of architecture, buildings, landscapes, and the ideas that hook into these subjects from an alphabet of supplementary sources, all knitted together by Manaugh's speculative imagination. Last week I was pleased to be able to contribute to that blog with a post on evil lairs in videogames. This week Manaugh has posted a conversation with me about my 2008 book, This Gaming Life, and related subjects.

Manaugh's book - a heavy illustrated compilation and extrapolation of his astute blogging project - is out soon. If you have even the slightest glimmer of interest in the world around you, you'll buy it.
