Design, photographs, perspectives and plans, All perfectly matching and perfectly designed, something that good architects deserve at the moment they works are shown. I haven’t read it yet but the text, shorts, still looks promising. Size is lovely, the right one. People think a big book is better but actually is the combination of the above mentioned what make a good book and big size sometime can even spoil the book making it pretentious.

This is not just an architecture book; it is a photo book as well. I didn’t know if the photographs were made recently for the book carefully done were you can’t see any clue of the time, making them timeless, but for a few details in a few images (cars) you can see that the images are contemporaneous of the projects. This shows Ulrich Franzen's aspects of his care and perfectionism. In the photo credits you can see the great Ezra Stroller and others of the same quality. Public in general do not know this projects in person, they are known through images and drawings and taking care of this it make the most of a good book

The last thing… the price it is amazing for this quality book

Never heard of collage architecture before, always wondered about what Franzen designed. With so many great opportunities, he never achieved greatness, just goodness.

In contrast, look at Breuer's Whitney Museum. Love it or hate it, an instant icon.
