The book was well worth the price! I ordered it through Amazon.Com.
Thank you for the opportunity to review this product.
designed to carry consumer items from one place to another? Each is exactly the same. But Kalkin has created
joy, anarchy and life using these simple blocks. His method reminds me of Wolfram's "A New Kind of Science"
where extremely complex improvisational variations evolve out of the simplest, most rudimentary computer
programs. This book begins with a single cellular unit called the "Monk's House"and works its way through FEMA
relief housing, hydraulically driven transformative pieces for Illy and Yahoo, million dollar homes, sustainable refugee villages, and a church encircled by
an LED cornice spewing the Old Testament. A remarkable work of the imagination, well illustrated and nice to hold in your hands.
