By Charles Hummel and Tim Woodward with Jeanne Huff.
Quintessential Boise offers a five-star system for understanding authentic streetscapes. Searching for the Boise in Boise—for the elements that define our city, making Boise unique—the book is a primer on architecture that works.
In Quintessential Boise you’ll find: commentary on architectural traditions and styles; analysis of growth and transportation patterns; dazzling photography, both contemporary and historic; art prints from the City of Boise’s collection; history and maps of neighborhood subregions; personal reflections on downtown’s urban renewal. “What makes us different is priceless.
Think of this book as a guide to what makes Boise like no place else.” From chapter one: “Five Fundamentals of Place.”
