Three smart, playful, original TED books from a leading architect, designer, and writer in one collection—The Art of Stillness, The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings, and Judge This—inspire a more creative life.

In The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere, travel writer Pico Iyer considers the unexpected rewards of staying put and reveals a counterintuitive truth: The more ways we have to connect, the more we seem desperate to unplug. Why might a lifelong traveler like Iyer, who has journeyed from Easter Island to Kathmandu, think that sitting quietly in a room might be the ultimate adventure? In The Art of Stillness Iyer reveals there’s never been a greater need to slow down, tune out, and give ourselves permission to be still.

An architect and founder of, Kushner guides readers through the innovative experimentation within the world’s most exciting structures. With stunning full color photographs and detailed explanations, The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings captures the soaring confidence, the thoughtful intelligence, the futuristic wonder, and at times the sheer whimsy of the world’s most inspired and future-looking buildings.

First impressions are everything. They dictate whether something stands out, how we engage with it, whether we buy it, and how we feel. In Judge This, travel through a day in the life of renowned designer Chip Kidd as he takes in first impressions of all kinds. Follow this visual journey with Kidd as he encounters and engages with everyday design, breaking down the good, the bad, the absurd, and the brilliant as only a designer can. Judge This is a design love story, exposing the often invisible beauty and betrayal in simple design choices ones most of us never even think to notice.
