    How to Architect is one of those books that you might expect to contain useful information about its titular subject which in this case would be Architecture You might expect it to contain tips and tricks of the trade insider secrets and generally good advice for someone who is interested in designing buildings You would of course be wrong How to Architect is a catchy uirky and interesting turn of phrase but very little else Its title sneakily attempts to pass it off as an instructional book but it isn't Its format The ABCs of Architecture would like you to think that it's a down and dirty collection of 26 useful architect's tips It isn't It's just a smattering of vaguely artsy sounding Letter Sections whose titles have little or nothing to do with their actual textual content Such sparkling gems of utter fecklessness like G is for Gravity K is for Kevin Bacon and W is for WWWhave nothing to do with architecture Period Other sections like E is for Ego R is for Routine V is for Vocation and Z is for Zealhave to do with what it might feel like to be an architect though the reader begins to gain the striking suspicion that the author is working only from supposition than they do with how to as the author says ArchitectBuyers beware The one and only useful section is in fact the first A is for Asymmetry This section contains legitimately good and helpful advice Unfortunately it is the only section to do so Do not let it trick you into buying this bookUltimately this reviewer feels that the most apt review of this wannabe book would have to beU is for Useless

    Besides the support of Ayn Rand at the end of the book this was a decent intro into the lives of architects

    La utilidad de los diccionarios es uno de esos hechos ue nadie cuestiona Tan irrefutable ue en los hogares católico después de la Biblia es uno de esos libros ue siempre tendrá un espacio en cualuier lugar Teniendo esto en mente recordemos la esencia del diccionario ue es precisamente dar significados y definiciones de palabras ordenas alfabéticamente Este ejercicio fue el realizado por Doug Patt para generar un breve pero consiste libro titulado How to Architect en el cual proporciona la definición de 26 palabras desde el punto de vista de un aruitecto En este punto cabe hacer la aclaración ue este libros del cual hablamos no es un diccionario aunue define y da el significado de palabras ordenadas alfabéticamente De hecho la forma correcta de clasificarlos es como un conjunto de breves ensayo compuesto de 26 reflexiones en torno a la aruitectura Este libro presenta de forma clara breve y concisa términos básicos sobre el hacer aruitectura Aruitectura ue en este libro en particular es utilizada como un verbo con la intención de dejar muy claro ue la aruitectura en una actividad Una actividad ue al igual ue los enunciados reuiere de una estructura ue sigue reglas ue cuando se rompen no significa ue se eche a perder todo el espacio o la expresión Según las propias palabras del autor este libro es un libro para iniciarse en esto de la aruitectura De hecho el texto fue el resultado de una serie de populares vídeos difundidos en Youtube bajo el mismo titulo La intenciones fueron variadas dar a conocer nuestro trabajo como aruitectos entusiasmar a los noveles y aventurados estudiantes como guia para promotores de las escuelas de aruitectura en las universidades y como recordatorios a los ue ya pasamos por la etapa de preparación universitaria Escrito con un estilo ligero y ágil How to architect esta acompañado de grandes dibujos a mano realizado por el autor cosa ue hoy en día se admira y se agradece En resumen el texto Doug Patt se presenta como otra mirada a la aruitectura desde un enfoue completamente distinto y subjetivo Sí no me euivoué subjetivo Cosa ue hoy en día también se agradece ya ue hoy en día al parecer la aruitectura y los aruitectos están preocupado por ajustarse a una objetividad ue les permita ue su trabajo y opiniones sean arropadas por la comunidad de aruitectos Sin embargo posiciones como las de Doug Patt abren la posibilidad a reflexionar confrontar ideas y externar opiniones acciones ue siempre serán bienvenidas Y si no me creen visiten su sitio wwwhowtoarchitectcomwwwlibrosdearuitecturacommx

    Such a lovely book I believe it is helpful for beginners in architecture as it gives a brief look at some architectural principles shows how the architect should think and what capabilities he should have I really liked the way how the author organized the principles in alphabetical order from A to Z As a 2nd year student I found it beneficial book but what it provides is actually simple and basic information about architecture I recommend this book for those students who are interested in architecture but not yet enrolled in architectural program so they will know what architecture is about before they go into it

    pretty rudimentary in scope but maybe because i was hoping for a read that went into poetic depth attempts to make a few far reaching thin comparisons humpty dumpty that brought down the level of intelligence in an effort to connect with a very broad readership however its a valiant effort to present the industry to all kinds of people and generally successful in presenting an appealing honest insight


  6. Maddison Holland Maddison Holland says:

    별로 언급할 것이 없다 그야말로 건축관련 입문서 느낌의 에세이다 깊이는 없는 듯 하다


  8. Mohammed Alsoufi Mohammed Alsoufi says:

    I don't know why i was waiting for from this book or deeper but it tells exactly what it offers in the description very easy and refreshing


  9. Pavel Pavel says:

    Some nice thoughts esp in the chapter on Kevin Bacon But beautifully produced book The layout speaks as much about the subject as the words
