Bill Caplan’s sensitivity to the connectivity of people, the human condition, and the built and natural environments has developed over a long career engaging high technology programs around the globe, from the human genome project to space exploration.   A decade of architectural and environmental research culminated in Buildings Are for People (Libri Publishing 2016) followed by his photojournalistic essay Contrasts 21c: People & Places – Vietnam, Laos & Cambodia (Libri Publishing 2018).   Bill Caplan has been photographing people and places on five continents for over 40 years.   He holds a Master of Architecture from Pratt Institute and a Materials Engineering degree from Cornell.

His Buildings Are for People: Human Ecological Design has been accredited by both the AIA and the IDCEC for 4 CE credits through a new Home Study Course offered by Design Arts Seminars for architects and designers.   The course, which includes the text, is available from Design Arts Seminars.   The book alone, without the online study questions and the ability for CE credit submission, is available from the RIBA bookstore, book sellers worldwide, and from Libri.
