PennDesign: Richard Saul Wurman

Recently honored with the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award for Lifetime ArchievementRichard Saul Wurman, B.Arch/M.Arch'59 has always sought ways to make the complex clear. He has written, designed and published 83 books on topics ranging from football to health care, to city guides, but he likes to say that they all spring from the same place - his ignorance.

Wurmanʼs first book, published when he was 26, featured models of 50 world cities on a uniform scale. Wurmanʼs latest book is called 33: Understanding Change & the Change in Understanding. It chronicles the adventures and musings of an eccentric (yet oddly familiar) character: the Commissioner of Curiosity and Imagination.
