What an amazingly simple philosophy.,
This review is from: The Timeless Way of Building (Center for Environmental Structure Series) (Hardcover)
On starting this book it did seem a bit `alternative' and pseudomystical and you begin to think it was a lot of money to spend on a book. As you get used to the style and you absorb the message it becomes a very powerful force. The idea that people built before architects told them how to and that this knowledge has become lost is evident as you read. But this simple philosophy could apply to so many other areas of life where experts have taken away our knowledge. A must for any self builder or thinker - brilliant.
