Author: Bill Caplan

With a passion for architecture and people-friendly design, and an engineer's understanding of sustainable interactions, Bill Caplan, Assoc. AIA, devoted the past decade to reconciling the physical, sensible and operative manifestations of architecture, culminating in "Buildings are for People: Human Ecological Design". He explored, analyzed and photographed architecture on five continents from human and environmental perspectives. Caplan’s career has evolved from high-tech engineering to architecture. After 34 years at the multi-national company he founded, working with diverse programs ranging from the race to decode the human genome to space exploration, he established a think tank for the built environment to focus on architecture. Caplan holds a Master of Architecture from Pratt Institute and a Materials Engineering degree from Cornell University, College of Engineering.
