Diane Keaton daydreams about architecture

Diane Keaton and D. J. Waldie Houses book

When I think of celebrities who have an interest in architecture, I think of folks like Brad Pitt rebuilding New Orleans, Moby blogging about Los Angeles or (when I’m being absurd) Barbra Streisand with her “passion for design.” Now, I can add Diane Keaton to my list without being absurd at all. Keaton has recently published a book called House that she wrote with D.J. Waldie.

You can read interviews with Keaton about her new book here and here. Some of the photos of the houses in the book are Keaton’s own, and if you’re curious as I was about what the book might say concerning houses, here is a quote: “I think, that good buildings accommodate everything they must, remember all they can, and then fall silent enough, allowing daydreaming to begin.”
