Spotlight on Amir Zaki’s Building + Becoming from UC Riverside

Sandra Baltazar Martínez recently published a thoughtful review of Amir Zaki’s forthcoming monograph, Building + Becoming, available April 26th. Zaki been teaching at the University of California, Riverside for over 20 years, and was previously an art major at the university.

Martínez notes the book’s unique design, taking readers “on an interactive journey as they simultaneously open the double gatefold pages to find striking images of trees, skateparks, ocean waves, or scenery that makes the reader stop to appreciate the serenity captured in those images,” taken over the course of Zaki’s career.
