Carolina Visitors Get Preview of New Book Content

By February 21, 2018Latest News

Audiences in Charlotte and Savannah got a sneak peak of content within my new book, Anatomy of a Great Home, which will be published in late March by Schiffer Publishing. The book showcases the work of premier residential architects in America. But its premise is to highlight design details and strategies that anyone could use to improve their life at home.

Twice-daily presentations drew strong attendance at the shows, produced by Show Technology. People not only liked looking at pictures of inspirational homes, many of them super-sustainable. But they enjoyed discussing plans for their own home, and how they intended to make it a better place to live.

The mini-lectures took place alongside this year’s Life-Changing Products exhibit, highlighted by Samsung’s The Frame TV, a television that doubles as a digital art wall. The June oven, which uses artificial intelligence to see what you put inside and cooks it perfectly every time, also made an appearance.

A television appearance on WTOC helped pique interest in the exhibit and my presentations. The exhibit area looked particularly sharp in Charlotte.
