Editorial Reviews

Review

“Those who fear otherworldly creativity digital design has wrought need to look to this graveyard of what might have been to praise the recession’s tightened-purse strings.” (International Design)

“A fascinating, profusely illustrated gander at the extraordinary structures designed for international competitions.” (Metropolitan Home)

“Massive and generously illustrated compendium of 100 unbuilt projects is an entertaining idea-generator.” (Archnewsnow.com)

Any aspiring architect (1st year student of at the University of Washington) should purchase this book. There's LOTS of inspiring public and private architecture here to get ideas from.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a nice book to have, but not for architects.
It is a bit too figural where most of the projects are simply an object in space and not an actual architecture.
It is nice in a way where it has bright colors, and some unique shapes along with buildings' skins. Most of the people would find it impressive I should say.
