5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable, 16 Jun 2010
This review is from: Exuberance: New Virtuosity in Contemporary Architecture (Architectural Design) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have thoroughly enjoyed browsing through this book about architectural design, and the virtuosity that can be found within it.

What the book presents are ideas about what buildings might be if architects were given complete freedom; it is virtuosic in that sense, and there is boundless enthusiasm that comes across within the designs.

I am a keen photographer, and the shots have provided some inspiration to me on how to photograph buildings in a more innovative way.

I have a passing interest in architecture, so this book has been an education. Sure, some articles might be a bit beyond the novice -- like myself -- but in this sense it teaches, which is a good thing.

With all the new buildings going up all the time, and some that are not very great at all, at least this magazine might be a super forum for architects to show what better things might be around the corner.
