Exceptional piece of exploratory philosophy,
This review is from: What Is Architecture?: An Essay on Landscapes, Buildings and Machines (Paperback)
This book is interesting. Its not a manifesto, nor a theory. It reads like an enlightened journey, approaching the boundaries of architecture from different angles and inspecting the very interesting results. To anyone interested in exploring their definitions of architecture, and by extension the philosophies behind it, i recommend it as good value and a worthwhile read, written in plain english (which always helps).
I also own Shepheard's other volume "what is landscape", which adopts a similar approach; also worth the time.
