Leading Architecture Firm Writes Book to Guide Next Generation Architects in Building Equitable, Climate-Positive Communities

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects (LMSa), a nationally acclaimed architecture firm that works only with nonprofit organizations, today announced its book, Practice with Purpose: A Guide to Mission-Driven Design. The how-to guide inspires architects and young designers to envision spaces that address some of the greatest challenges of our time: the climate emergency, racial and ethnic injustice, chronic homelessness, educational crises, and the preservation of the embodied carbon and culture of existing buildings.

Practice with Purpose is a different type of book about architecture,” said William Leddy, FAIA, Principal, LMSa. “It’s not a monograph or a coffee table book – it’s a guide dedicated to architecture students, young designers, and practicing architects who want to work every day to build a just, climate-positive future for all.”

“Our ethos at LMSa has always been based on creating equitable and sustainable spaces that model a resilient, hopeful future,” said Marsha Maytum, Principal Emeritus, LMSa. “This book is meant to accelerate the shift toward that practice model that is already taking place.”
