HASH(0x97de906c) out of 5 stars Great color printing, deceptive content. 1 Dec. 2013
By arq-cali - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a person moving from an academic setting to the professional environment, I wanted a book that would serve as much as an inspiration for innovative building techniques as a primer for theoretical standpoints behind the forms. What I got was one chapter about the construction of the Sanaa Rolex Center which formally was not really reflective of the main argument found within the book: that our formal depictions of landscape should move outside of smooth topologies and rolling pastoral planes of green roofs. I could see this book as a good resource for students looking for safe references for use in building an academic arguments for a theoretical project. Unfortunately, I see this book as mostly disengaged with the profession of building.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Did not get a lot of information out of this book. I found some projects that were helpful with enough information for learning but most of them were basically not useful.
