5.0 out of 5 stars never short of ideas., 15 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Notations 21 (Hardcover)
ther is always something new to be found in here. it is hard finding a good body of drawings online for graphic notations those that can be found seem to be censored by some strange intelligence as they all look the same, this book shows the potential of graphic scores.


Key Thinkers on Space and Place
Key Thinkers on Space and Place

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what i thought., 15 Feb. 2010
This is more like a reference book, an encyclopedia of thinkers on space, it is worth having for research for essays etc but is presented in a bullet point format; it has great access to key points on specific thinkers but there is no discussion and little in the way of context.

5.0 out of 5 stars Graphics!, 15 Feb. 2010
i'd recommend anyone studying architecture to get this book, there are loads of graphical ideas to be exploited.

1.0 out of 5 stars as a book- poor, 5 Feb. 2010
The photography in this book can only be described as poor. I think it is mainly to do with scale. a book is just too small to pull this off. It is kind of like watching films on an ipod- pathetic. There is no logic informing what is being presented here and as such fails in every respect to see zumthor, a few tricks were missed I feel in the formatting of this book. If this is all that was seen by the person visiting these buildings then what a chance wasted.

If you are looking for an inspirational monograph look elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful introduction., 18 Jan. 2010
There is one small reference to the nazi party in this book, in reference to what actually happened and linking Heidegger's writings to nationalism. You can not disscuss Heidegger, without talking about nationalism, it is clear why in the book.
More than the content of this book it is the style which is difficult, lots of stuff in brackets disrupting the flow of the sentences (in parts which aren't that complex), it has a rushed unfinnished quality, i was dissapointed but it is still a good introduction, remember these books are like 100 pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning piece of cinema, 13 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Let the Right One in [DVD] (DVD)
This film does what all great cinema does- makes you feel things. there were candid moments capturing the complexities human behaviour captured/shot in ways that quite simply made me feel things i hadn't for years.

i scarily i watched it 3 times at the cinema.
