After a successful career as an award-winning architect and interior designer, Joel Levinson has turned full-time to his other first love, writing. His novel, The Reluctant Hunter, originally published in 2012 and revised and republished in 2019 received a positive critique from Kirkus Review. The book also received positive reviews from other authors, educators, and numerous reviewers on Amazon. The reviews are reproduced in the My Works section of my AG website.
Levinson also writes non-fiction with a focus on art, architecture, photography, science, and philosophy. Samples of his writings on those subjects appear in his blog and "legacy" website www/:joellevinson.info
Fifty years of Levinson's design work and writings are being preserved by the Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania, his alma mater where he also taught architecture and energy conservation. A book titled The Houses of Joel Levinson, and an exhibit of his architecture and photography, are in the development stage by the Archives. His writings on a variety of topics have appeared locally and internationally including a pioneering article on Outdoor Rooms in Global Architecture, published in Japan. His architectural designs have been published in professional journals and books.
Joel Levinson is a world authority on the Phenomenon of Diagonality. His book on this little-understood and under-appreciated theme is nearing completion. He also has books under development dealing with the Dual Nature of Time and The Selfmade Universe.
