Typical for Architectural Monographs from Academy Jul 10, 2005
A review of architectural works in photos, hard line presentation drawings, plans, sections, elevations, sketches in color or B&W of excellent quality, short project descriptions, published by Birkhäuser (Basel...) on a high level, graphically beautiful, but the content is not up to the book quality, and condensing it would be beneficiary.

Crossing Midfield Review Apr 11, 2001
I thought the book Crossing midfield by Donaldson + Warn Architects is an original book based on various Architectural Designs by these Perth based architects. There are a variety of different projects in the book which I found very interesting especially as i live in Perth myself. I found the books content to be very thorough and well thought through. The pictures of these projects were excellent and you could really see how talented these architects really are.
