Blank State is more than a coloring book: it is an exercise in collaboration, inviting the participant to contribute to the act of creation. Architecture and urban planning impacts our lives dramatically, dictating how we interact with our everyday environments, yet they are largely out of the layperson's control. This book allows everyone to make their mark through the use of color and value. Starting with prehistory and progressing through a re-imagined past, present and future, this book reinvents an architectural legacy, a "blank state" ready to be colored in or not. All that is needed is imagination and a willingness to dream.
