Lydia Kallipoliti asks, "What is the Power of Shit?"

Featured image—a composite of diagrams of real or imagined closed systems ranging from an eighteenth-century underwater breathing apparatus to a zero-gravity life support system and an anaerobic digester used to convert human and animal waste into methane—is reproduced from The Architecture of Closed Worlds by architect, engineer and scholar Lydia Kallipoliti. A hands-down staff favorite 2018 Holiday Gift Book for the Design Devotee, this vibrantly designed volume with reflective silver cover and the winning subtitle, Or, What Is the Power of Shit?, comes to us from Lars Müller and Storefront for Art and Architecture.
