Terrific! Now, armed with Brolin’s sensitive analysis, I can grasp what buildings have always tried to tell me. His expertise allows me to replace fuzzy habits of observant with an ability to receive architects’ messages. By studying these volumes we can revisit the architecture of our lifetime, from the ordinary to the monumental, with trained vision!!
This book, and its companion are a wonderful resource of images for both students and professionals. It is very rare to see such a wide gamut of work and approaches. It inspired me about much more than ornament.
This is a resource that I will keep on my ‘desktop’.
