This is a story about Norman
Norman is a young boy who wants to be an architect just like his mom. Along the way he explores his imagination, meets new friends, and learns about the joy of architecture.
This book is simple and relatable with gorgeous drawings to make the storytelling come to life. At its core, Norman's Architecture Adventure is about how having an imagination is the greatest adventure anyone can have. Nothing holds Norman back, he sees what could be and he creates it. He is unrestricted by age, ethnicity, or preconceptions.
This book features over 30 pieces of original art by author and illustrator, Josh Sanabria. In his own words, "I really put my heart and soul into writing and drawing this. After years of drawing straight lines as an architectural designer it was hard to loosen up and let things flow but I'm proud of the spirit that came through these drawings."
Our hope is that this book, even in a small way, challenges gender and racial roles and is part of a larger movement to encourage greater diversity in the design field.
This book was inspired by our friend who is one of the youngest female African-American architects in the United States. We believe that by creating fun and approachable stories we can begin to change the narrative around diversity in all fields, not just architecture.
Support this campaign and help us create a world where curiosity and creativity is encouraged for everyone, everywhere.
Josh is an architecture designer and the founder of GoArchitect. He lives in California and enjoys bringing architecture to life through sketching, writing, and creating software. He graduated with an M-Arch from Andrews University in wintery southwest Michigan.
