5.0 out of 5 stars The never-ending conceptual illustration book, 12 Dec. 2003
This review is from: Perfect Acts of Architecture (Hardcover)
Not only for architecture people but also for those who are working on the edge of visualizing the ideas. This book compiles sets of illustrations from recent famous architects. In each section, there are only few words describe how the images came up. Followed by pages contain interesting drawings, ideas, collages, and diagrammes. There are only one project (from Mr. Koolhass and friends) that has some wording with images that work very well together.
The interesting thing is the way the architect turn the usually unseen into seen images or the unfold of thinking behind architectural ideas. And they always invite and encourage you to use your own imagination. They represent how the ideas are conceived and what are among the outcomes. Each work also has the glimpse of experimentation within itself.
It is a book you can read through many, many times without feeling bored as you can come up with something new by looking what is in the content.
If you are the one who doesn't care much for the description of images and wording but you are really keen on some kinds of methodology of transforming imaginative ideas into reality. It is for you.
I initially found it at a library and immediately felt I have to possess one.
