"A stunning exploration of the design of design
How Buildings Learn will irrevocably alter yor sense of place, space, and the artifacts that shape them."
Michael Shrage, Wired
Philip Morrison, Scientific American
"An extremely attractive volume that will forever alter the way we respond to the buildings around us. We may also hope it will alter the way architects design buildings."
Harold Gilliam, San Francisco Chronicle
"A fascinating and indefinable book
How Buildings Learn is a hymn to entropy, a witty, heterodox book dedicated to kicking the stuffing out of the proposition that architecture is permanent and that buildings cannot adapt."
Stephen Bayley, The Times (London)
"The book's diagnosis is clear and to the poiny, and its illustrations of how buildings change are both fascinating and instructive. This is, in short, one of the rare books that every architect should read."
Thomas Fisher, editor, Progressive Architecture
"A book of good sound-bites and laser-sharp insight
No architecture students should complete their preliminary studies without reading it from cover to cover."
Patric Hannay, The Architects' Journal
