  • By Tom G. on 25 May 2011

    Overall a source of inspiration more than anything else. If you're hoping to see how these things are actually made (detail drawings)- you will be disappointed.On the positive side:- 600 pages divided into 5 chapters: equipment, environment & sustainability, horizontal & vertical connections (that is bridges/stairs & lifts), structure and enclosures, finishes (although titles are misleading, see below)- a spectrum of subjects from interior to large scale buildings- good quality photographsDownsides:- no reference to the photographs other than photographers name! nothing about location, architect/designer, construction year etc. absolutely useless if you want to find out more about particular building/detail- minimum text information although in 4 languages (eng, ger, fre, ned)- chapter titles chosen rather freely (or otherwise the the examples they contain) - eg. 'structure and enclosures' also contain images of wall finish, green roof, etc.- chaotic structure, you would need to post-it every page to be able to find what you're looking for the next time you open the book.
