Despite my reservations, this is a strangely compelling book, possibly best described as illustrated poetry. The photographs draw the reader into a mythical space and the text provides clues, hints, feelings, patterns -- architecture as numinous art, as an invitation to a spiritual journey. Again, not at all what I expected, but quite a beautiful book.
