Reviews
This beautiful book, wonderfully researched and written, is clearly a labor of love for architect Amado...there is much in general to be learned and an enjoyable 'ride' to be had.--CHOICE--

[T]his is one of those rare coffee-table volumes with an actual thesis, and it nicely combines the history of the automobile with that of architecture in ways that most readers, or perhaps 'viewers', will long remember.

--Technology and Culture--

An engaging read...the book is almost an exploration of ideas on cars and mobility at this junction in history. Amado is a fluid writer, creating a charming narrative, chapter after chapter building up to the climax that is the story of the car itself.

--Nargess Shahmanesh, Banks Design Talks--

Antonio Amado's central project with this readable and engrossing book is to restore the car to what he considers its rightful place in Le Corbusier's philosophy: at the centre.
