Wendy Evans Joseph: Pop-Up Architecture

By Wendy Evans Joseph
Pop-Ups by Kees Moerbeek
Essay by Paul Goldberger



Wendy Evans Joseph founded her architectural firm over ten years ago with the sole purpose of being involved with projects that would be inspiring, and with clients who want to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others through their environment. Each project is a new blank page, a new structure unique in all its aspects, another opportunity to change the world.

In Wendy Evans Joseph: Pop-Up Architecture, six of Joseph’s most outstanding and award-winning architectural and interior design projects are brought to life in intricate, spectacular 3-D. From a simple yet elegant Japanese-inspired home observatory, to a quiet, contemplative memorial garden, to a modern, cantilevered pedestrian bridge, each of the pops in the book allows the reader to engage with Joseph’s work in a new way. The pops themselves are minimally illustrated in solid-colored or lightly patterned paper to suggest the materials used in the construction—aluminum, cedar, terrazzo, steel—while photographs serve as the background design and provide additional views of the structure. Accompanying each pop is a text offering a brief discussion of the inspiration behind the work and some of the challenges Joseph and her team faced during the development and construction phases.

Innovative, informative, and engaging, Wendy Evans Joseph: Pop-Up Architecture is the next best thing to seeing her amazing structures in person. It is the perfect gift for fans of Joseph’s work and for architecture enthusiasts everywhere.
