8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By E. Jonatan on December 6, 2012
Format: Hardcover
RA: The Book is a book of very high quality. The prints are fantastic and it is a very large book so it really shines as a coffee table book to show to others with the same interest.
This book is a great source of inspiration, and it has a huge number of case studies. This is obviously the main focus of this book and in this regard it really delivers.
Now a little information on what this book does not do. It is not the ultimate studio design book, period.
People how say it is, has obviously not read books like "Recording Studio Design" by Philip Newell.
RA: The Book is about 340 pages long and only chapter 6 is really about studio design techniques that are universal and can be applied to any given project. This is 68 pages out of 340.
"Recording Studio Design" by Philip Newell has 830 pages, and every single page debates something that can be of use for a generic project (not a completely fair comparison, since RA:s page size is huge).
In RA: The Book there are a lot of drawings with rather small notes that are not always very obvious. The drawings and pictures are usually presented without any discussion or explanation to why certain methods where used, so it is hard to know if these methods would apply to a given project or not. Since RA has worked on perfecting their method over the years, as oppose to trying a hundred different approaches to solve a problem, the showcases are rather similar. To give an example: there are quite a few very successful studios around the world without one single sheet of plywood with round holes in it; you will not find any of these studios in this book.
I have not found a single measurement stated in this book. When describing a case study I would expect subjective evaluation as well as objective measurements to be present.
