PLACENOTES is the Charles Moore Foundation's series of guides that lead people to, and teach them about places that truly matter.  The original print editions were based on Charles Moore's sly observation that "the best test of architecture might be if people send postcards of your building."  Each box of PLACENOTES cards led people to places in cities and regions that exemplified the best of architecture, landscape, streets, neighborhoods, parks, and monuments.


Now PLACENOTES is a wholly digital App.  Our first edition, The Sea Ranch, is available for smartphones and tablets.
