    I read this book about a year ago, but even though I don t remember all the details it has stuck with me An interesting exploration of small architecture used as a jumping off point to talk about culture and history and design lack of designdefinitely left me with a lot to think about An enjoyable and kind of calming read.

    This is the kind of neither here nor there book that one is allowed to get away with writing after one gets tenure I like reclusive Chinese poets as much as the next guy But yet, this book left me with a strange emptiness the kind that can only be filled in solitude and maybe that was the point.

    I ve no idea why the average rating of this book is slightly above 3 I d vote it full 5, as I read some parts twice.There is a lot in there literacy, imagination, the slight twist of a dreamer s personal narrative and analyses, which go far beyond architecture.It s a beautiful book, if you re up to it And no, I don t believe in infinite tolerance when it comes to taste.
