Theoretical Anxiety and Architectural Strategies in the Work of Eight Contemporary Architects…keeps the ‘live’ feel of a master performance. The result is an exacting but easy read that unfolds like a novel by Italo Calvino….Moneo moves beyond the common denominator of form to touch on the rich complexity of what architecture is. In the sense that architecture is between the lines, you have to read between the lines of this book.—Bernard Tschumi, The Architect’s Newspaper—
Moneo’s insights and analyses are often brilliant, and hisperspective as a Spaniard and as a former chair of the GSD (Harvard Graduate School of Design) is a unique one. He conveys his ideas inlively prose, peppered with anecdotes.
