Could been better 19 Sep 2010
By chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was hoping this book would show other projects like the new 41 Cooper Square building and the Wayne l. Morse Courthouse building but it doesn't. I do like the the velum drawings and the photos that are included.

a personal romance of architecture.......at its best 14 Aug 2010
By Thom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is my fifth (purchased) document on the LA practice Morphosis,.............a wonderful feast of ideas, spatial experiences and a visual tour de force.
There is no one better in the world today at providing a built/theoretical product, that demands a cerebral and visceral engagement by the viewer or occupant, than Thom Mayne.
Long may we enjoy this particular focus in Architecture.

He's a dreamer 2 Sep 2010
By Darren O. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I work in one of his buildings completed in 2007 in San Francisco. And it's the worst place I've ever worked. Yes, I thought it looked cool from the outside too. But the inside is totally non-functional and his explanations of building design and how it's supposed to transform people's lives is total gunk! More specifically, the building is loud, has tons and tons of wasted, dark space in the stairwell landing areas yet leaves us working in a cramped area. It's either too hot and stuffy, or too cold depending on whether the automatically controlled windows open or not. They're mostly closed. Many colleagues have their own personal heaters at their desks. The natural light is too glaring on one side and too dark on the other, so most of us have extra shades, umbrellas or personal lamps depending on what side we're on. The building scrim designed to protect occupants from the sun, and offer views of the bay area hasn't worked for many months. There were no safe indoor bike racks designed for this supposedly green building. And the gym was a total afterthought placed in a dark, inadequate basement area. And as a seemingly final insult, the building's air intake pipe was apparently placed next to the sewage exhaust pipe, so when the wind blows in a particular direction, our entire office space smells like sewage. From what I can tell, Mr. Mayne is a very good writer and marketer. But he's an egotistical dreamer and unfortunately for us that have to deal with his "creations" on a daily basis, a terrible architect!
