Excellent bookhelps to open up the imagination to numerous possibilities on possible building forms but thinking about it critically these forms could be anything you wantanother marginal benefit this book conveys is shade giving depth mass to the surfaces and volume of each object I received this book less than an hour ago and it blew my mind I am an artist not an architect Each little drawing is a wonderful perspective study I will be using this book to copy, explore, and extend these forms The only thing the drawings are missing are shadows, but I think this omission was on purpose to keep these forms truly siteless in the architectural sense.
