"Beyond the traditional display of selected projects this book provides a range of essays by Bing Thom that deal with the questions he has been asking throughout his career. What is architecture? What is the right approach to architectural design? These essays provide a nice backdrop to the diverse range of projects presented in this monograph. It is easy to see how Bing Thom has tried to explore these questions with different scales and programs." --Arch Daily, July 26, 2011
"Bing Thom is the subject of a new full-color book by Princeton Architectural Press. Prominently featured in the collection is his new Arena Stage, which has helped catalyze redevelopment in southwest Washington, D.C. The book, however, also goes way beyond his recent critically-acclaimed D.C. work and explores his earlier large-scale cultural projects in his native Vancouver along with his serene residential projects. For anyone inspired by nature, Thoms biophilic, environmentally-responsible, and socially-conscious built sculptures are worth delving into." --American Associate of Landscape Architects blog The Dirt, July 28, 2011
