Much of the discussion was 5 stars, but fell down due to the amount of the text focused on the author's own experience with his own work on Gaudi's Sagrada Familia.
The author interviewed an large number of leaders in scripting culture and then didn't share enough of what they had to say.
It was certainly his book and not mine, but I would have much preferred a survey of the broad range of opinions and perspectives of leaders in the field.
Still worth the money and a read!

By Charlieb on July 5, 2013
Format: Paperback
The author provides an excellent overview of the history digital architecture and programming via Q&A with contemporary (design) scripting experts and at a deeper level through his work at completing Antoni Gaudi's Temple Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

The philosophical provocations are an excellent bonus for the reader.

Highly recommended for practitioners and students.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an academic professor, this AD Reader by Mark Burry gives my student a background on understanding the basis of scripting with a theoretical and practical approach to designing through scripts. It allows the student themselves to understand the precedents, while making it possible to understand the reason behind why one should or should not script, and applying practical theory onto their design process. I would recommend those designers with advanced scripting methodology and novice scripters to use this book, not as a primer to scripting, but as a guide to better advance or broaden your understanding of theoretical application of scripting.
