3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Eugene Tenenbaum VINE VOICE on December 13, 2004
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Published by Rizzoli under ISBN: 0847811522 and 0847811247, it has 256 pages. Disappointingly, Centre Georges Pompidou is presented on a few somewhat depressing or irrelevant B&W photos and illegible tech. drawings with white lines on black background. A few more projects are shown in that manner. Many photos show everything except architecture (good for social studies), or were made too close to the object showing too little of it, or - too far showing too much sky or foliage, incl. most of the B&W ones. There are not many plans and sections, and mostly too small and/or simplistic (incl. hand drawn). Technical aspect of structure is overemphasized and dominates photos like in a construction handbook. The fabric of architecture - space proportions and composition is very scarce. There is a lot of empty paper.
