Review: Complexity and Contradiction in ArchitectureUser Review - Rory Hyde - Goodreads
The text opens with "I like...", which I love. Traces a historical narrative of complex and contradictory taste and design that runs counter to reductive modernism. And capped off with examples of VSBA's own work, some skin in the game. A perfectly symmetrical manifesto. Read full review
