Great Find 21 Feb. 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Many seldom seen "Curtis Photograps" interestingly presented. Minimal but informative narrative. In many ways it lets the pictures speak for themselves. Excellent reproductions. A real treasure for the architecturaly curious and for the anyone interested in early Indian-American life.

Sites & Strustures The Architectural Photographs of ..... 26 Dec. 2004
By Zeth J. Kinnett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just picked this book up from he book store and briefly fliped through it. I bought this book because I am an interior architecture student. I like natural forms which this book provides. The book has a very nice appearance and the paper quality is very high. I think that the book achieves its purpose but maybe not to a full extent. It is a photograpy book and if you want the book for no other reason than the photographs then you will defenitely like the book. What I to be very disappointing about this particular book is that there is no information on the people in the photographs or on the forms which have been photographed. I would personally would like to know the names of the specific structures and have information on the forms such as how they were built and or why they were built the way they were jsut to add a little insight into what it is that us viewers ar looking at. Otherwise the book is good I would recommend it to anyone. You can always do your own research on the types of forms in the photographs. Just buy it it is good. Remember that to hire an architect is always the way to go and don't recycle or by bio-degradeable items. recycling creates more pollution than it it stops, and bio-degradeable material don't degrade when compacted in a landfill with no air allowed to come in contact with the material. Reuse as much as possible.
