Unpacking My Library Architects And Their Books
Out of Stock
How do books map the intellectual curiosities, tastes, and personalities of their readers? What does the collecting of books have in common with the practice of architecture? A celebration of the arts of reading and collecting, this book provides an intimate look at the personal libraries of twelve of the world's leading architects, alongside conversations about the significance of books to their careers and lives. The architects present reading lists of their top ten influential titles, from architectural history to theory to fiction and nonfiction, that serve as personal philosophies of literature and history, and as advice on what every young architect, scholar, or bibliophile should read. --Book Jacket.
