"If your soul longs to dwell within something other than flat walls and right angles, this book will make you say, 'Ah!' Pearson gives us the gift of seeing into the hearts and minds of these designers while sharing their sources of inspiration, the nature of their design process, their involvement with the materials, and their passion for the spirit and form of life. In short, he gives us the gift of ourselves, reawakened."--"Natural Home magazine
From the Inside Flap
"David Pearson's New Organic Architecture: The Breaking Wave is a remarkable book. Visually it makes the connection between the organic in nature and in design. Verbally, without getting bogged down in the usual architectural jargon, it offers a broad and comprehensive review of sources,and current work with statements by architects themselves. This is an inspirational book for a broad audience. It is seminal - a seed that will flower into new ideas, and a new vision of what is possible - in the same way that Bernard Rudofsky's Architecture Without Architects did thirty years ago. The layout - connecting pictures of architecture and nature, with pithy quotes and descriptions interweaving history, philosphy,design, and culture is like a filed of wildflowers in full bloom. This book is much needed, and I predict will have a long and successful run."Sim Van der Ryn

What I don't like about this book is that it shows very little of each architects projects and some of the photo's where done using a very poor resolution camera, making for some very grainy pictures.
If your interested in the organic style of architecture then I would recommend adding it to your library. There is some very original stuff inside this book that just might spark some new ideas in your own practice.
