Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Architect Berkus presents a collection of compelling art experiences, moments from key projects in which he has been involved, and the parallels he has observed in other places that have captured his imagination. He begins with a section that discusses architecture, abstraction, and the elements of place. Next, he develops connections between specific buildings, projects, paintings, sculptures, and photography. In the process, he examines some of the forces that have influenced him, and includes some case studies of resulting forms. Beautifully illustrated in color. Oversize: 9x12<">.
