Ambassador Richard Swett?s groundbreaking new book investigates the unique civic leadership strengths of the architecture profession. Drawing upon the compelling history of the profession, both past and present,as well as from his own singular experience as the only architect to serve in Congress during the 20th century, Swett has produced an insightful volume that is both inspiring and instructive. He shares Mark Twain?s viewthat ?if the only tool you have is a hammer, after a while every problem begins to look like a nail.? Leadership by Design is an eloquent plea to architects, leaders and citizens alike to expand the tool chest as we seeknew leadership to design new solutions for the complex challenges facing our nation and the world.
