I didn’t see much over the past few days in the MLS. The only I came close to posting was this one.
An architect friend & I were chatting about architecture books last weekend (over a very fine meal at Odd Duck Farm to Trailer). One question that came up I thought would be an interesting to get your feedback on:
- What do you want in an architecture book?
- Do you just look at the (hopefully) pretty pictures?
- Do you want architectural or floorplan drawings?
- Do you care about critical commentary or would prefer more fact based text (or virtually no-text at all)?
If you need a more concrete example: If there was a book about mid-century modern and / or current modern architecture in Austin, what would you want out of it?
ps. The above photo doesn’t have anything to do with anything here. It is a picture of a 360 degree camera obscura on the island of Aegina in Greece. I took the picture on the second to last day of our a sailing trip through the Greek isles this past summer. Absolutely brilliant way to see Greece. If you ever consider it, we sailed with Anko Yatching and Thanos & Alicja were amazing hosts.
