Editorial Reviews

Review

"Padovan's important new book surveys 25 centuries of theoretical concern for proportion in architecture in relationship to philosophy and science."

"Padovan had much to offer all architects, not only in respect of what they design but also of how they see the world as a whole. And that is quite and achievement "Architectural Review."

By E. Holden on July 23, 2014
Format: Paperback
My grandson was very pleased to receive this book for his birthday. He is a young architect and said this book was just what he needed for the development of his work. My grandson, John, has just written me that this book has introduced him to an architect he had not known before, and it is proving to be a good text to ground him in the history of aesthetic thinking as it pertains to proportion. Of course I am delighted to hear this! I bought this book at Amazon.

Format: Paperback
beyond architecture, this book examines the racionalist vs. empirist debate in science, art and phillosophy. most impresive is the way it disolves the dilemma, explaining that both approaches are essentially the same as knowledge is acquired via a continuous process of inventing and discovering, inhaling and exhaling, imposing laws on nature and observing them.
