Most Helpful Customer Reviews

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on December 17, 2000
Format: Hardcover
The book gives an overview on Botta's works in the past, present and it lists some projects with their drawings and models that are proposed to be done in the future. The book is sufficient, in my opinion, to provide a basic understanding of Botta's philosophies and the way he handles architecture.
almost every information given in the book is given in three different languages. Hence, the book might be useful to some of those who don't use English.
There is a small gallery at the end of the book that illustrates some of the design work that Botta did outside architecture like furniture, vases, among others. the collection is informative. However, I wished I found a collection with larger photos and more details.
So, in general, I rate the book as a good reference and overview on Botta's works, especially architectural ones.
