Huh??? 7 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Eisenman, prententious author of Diagram Diaries and Chora-L shows that his ridiculousness is boundless and that there is much more where that comes from. Illogical constructs do not good buildings make. If you wonder why his buildings look so bad, and are so poorly detailed, it is because he tries to build IDEAS (flawed ideas for sure), not BUILDINGS. This treatise is an attempt to rationalize some of the silliness that underlies the Emory Center. Memory Games, indeed. Lobotomy for the future of culture, more like.

Please Tell Me This is a Joke 4 Dec 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pick a sentence ... any sentence in the book ...
Now read it aloud to your non architect friends. Then ask yourself if they are laughing WITH you or, more likely, laughing AT you. I honestly don't know how anyone takes this stuff seriously ... Unless that is, you happen to be in the AIA, and this is just the sort of crap you fall for every time. Before you buy, just ask yourself how much of a sucker you really are. Be Honest Now ...

Good presentation for Emory Centre Design 2 Aug 2000
By Bluestream - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a collection of drawings & photos of models for the design of the Emory Centre For The Arts by Eisenman. It's arranged in order from "Conceptial Diagrams" to "Texts" To "Drawings (Plans/Elevations)" to COnstruction Drawings. Basically, lots of line & 3d drawings, photos of models & site. And Eisenman explains his design theories in the middle. Instesting, for those interested in Folding Methods in design and wonder how to deal with difficult issues like construction details, materials etc, and also the design strategies. Good reference!
