For an Architecture of Reality
For an Architecture of Reality
by Michael Benedikt
Edition: Paperback
Price: 9.05

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a good read!, 15 Mar 2012
This is a very interesting book that you can read in a couple of hours. Although it's short it gives you a lot to think of and it is beautiful in it's simple writing. You can easily put Benedikt in the same chain of thought of Christian Norberg-Schulz, or Juhani Pallasmaa, or any phenomenology scholars. I do recommend this book to anyone, in architectural field or not, as i said it's a very interesting read.


Louis Kahn: Essential Texts
Louis Kahn: Essential Texts
by Louis I. Kahn
Edition: Paperback
Price: 19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Lucky_lux, 29 Jun 2011
This is a good book if you're interested in Kahn's work and his thinking towards architecture. It's a collection of his most famous texts and lectures around the world, where he speaks about his buildings and his beliefs in what architecture is, and should be. Each chapter opens with a brief summary by the author (Robert Twombly) who assembled the texts. So it is most Kahn's writings and speeches. The only downside i found in this book was the repetitive statements and similar thoughts thru out the book, which was boring. But can be interpreted as a strong beliefs system Kahn created for himself, which he preach strongly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short Kahn's review, 23 Jun 2011
This is a good book as an introduction to Kahn's work and beliefs. The book is indeed too short, as in text, but it stills keeps track and sums up very well the character of this great men among architects. I do recommend it, because is a very good addition to any architect's personal library. It's a good value for your money!
