clear explanations what architecture has been through the history, and how those values follow to our time, is educational and rarely found in other books. All of the presentations are the line drawings and those are related to the narrative as if they are extensions of the writer's thoughts. In such format there is a respectful attention given to both, the text and the illustrations. The book is analytically rich and successful in description of the design strategies. An architect or an initiated person will have a need for such instructions not only to understand the architecture but to use the teaching from this book in the practice of architecture.
Considering how rare publications of this kind are available, and how much saturation of the popular fashionable architecture is only to please a consumer for a short time, Design Strategies in Architecture is the sober, soulful and dignified presentation of the understanding of the lasting beauty of architecture for times and ages of men.
