UK Analysis Dec 27, 2007
The overall view of the book is considered to be an excellence book. There are a few projects that need to have drawing documentation and in my preferences drawings could be bigger but they are readable. The photographs in this book are excellent representation of the essence of the projects under the study cases. Perhaps the narratives could include deeper conclusions of the architect's ideas-to explain the arrival of their conclusions.
