Editorial Reviews

Review

"It wets the appetite for more built work, which will surely pose and exhilarating challenge to our notions of space." -- Mark Branch, I.D. Magazine

"Taking its title from aviation equipment, this book will take you to place in architecture you didn't know existed. Denari's richly shaped and painstakingly articulated work is shown project-by-project through mostly computer renderings and some models." -- SAH/SCC Newsletter, Nov/Dec 1999

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is pretty awesome. Written by Neil Denari, it offers insight on what he bases his practice off of. Even though it was published earlier in his career, the graphics are still pretty cool. For any architect/ designer based in LA, I would say this book is a staple to ones bookshelf.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Elizabeth Martin on January 3, 2000
Format: Paperback
Gyroscopic Horizons shows an indepth look into the process, motivation and presentational work from one of the most important young american architects currently practicing. For a first monograph, Denari's work is seamless offering a unique journey through the architect's portfolio and logic. Denari's book approaches a very important issue for understanding culture and technology. In 1987, renowned architectural critic and historian Kenneth Frampton (architecture, Columbia U) separated Neil Denari out among his peers as a more thoughtful designer. As Frampton predicted, Gyroscopic Horizons contains enormous insight and energy into this thoughtful architects work. Landmark First Monograph!
