very good! Oct 30, 2007
A very good book, with many types of residential spaces with plans, elevations and many photos too. A very good graphical design and excelent quality of paper, a master piece without doubts!
Definitive book on architectural planning Jun 20, 2007
This is the state of the art in planning information. Editorially, this is the finest work being done in the world, with all issues of book production (graphic presentation, architectonic and conceptual analysis, format, etc.) of the highest quality. Nothing currently available compares. Essential reference for students and architects.
A ridiculously handy reference. Mar 10, 2006
I've desired this since I had access to it in an office at which I once worked. Now it's in paperback, revised, and cheap. The editors have a great sense of which projects merit inclusion, offering some basic works and some slightly more radical projects. The brilliant system of scaling everything to the same ratio (and the clever, included transparent scale ruler) makes this truly an efficient reference manual and not just some more architectural pornography.
I find I use this both in work (and for casual browsing) far more often than I really use the sexy full color architecture books of the moment that seem to flood the landscape.
I only have one or two complaints: I'd love to see some of the plans, whose reproduction leaves a lot to be desired, redrawn. Also, I'd love to see some scaled sections for the included projects, since many or the included works transcend full discussion in plan. I guess that would be antithetical given the book title, however.
