Format: Hardcover
this is a great book if you are looking for explanation on how the moving parts of buildings work and to find out good examples. Really good technical drawings, but more focused on the systems rather than the building itself.
Nonetheless is quite varied on its content, and has also more "conceptual" writing about motion itself, dance and film, technology and sustainability.
I would surely recommend it to anyone looking for transformability of shape in architectural design.
