Reviews

"a clear and thoughtful explanation of her philosophy, which both design veterans and laypeople can easily grasp and put to use. It is refreshing to find a design book with clear steps and insights into a particular architect's process. The captions for the photos are helpful poetic summaries of the firm's basic concepts, and the images explain those concepts in a straightforward way, which also is helpful." - EAST HAMPTON STAR
