An Architect's Manifesto on the Origin of Creativity
Located in the north hills of Pittsburgh, Villa Vuoto is home to Matthew Schlueb and his architectural practice, dedicated to the design of private residences.  His belief that a home is the most intimate of all space is the foundation for his practice, which he defends is this autobiographical collection of writings.  Originally intended to provide insight into the factors that shaped his own family's house, this book ended up a search for the essence of a home, an exploration of his own creative process, and ultimately locating the source of creativity itself... hidden in the imagination of a child.
