Teaching architecture through poetry? UC Berkeley architecture professor Jill Stoner has amassed 48 poems selected from some of the most noted poets of the 20th century to help her architecture students understand the conceptual idea of space. Each incredibly moving poem from greats such as William Blake, Octavio Paz, Sylvia Path and William Carlos Williams has an accompanying illustration or photograph and a rich introductory essay. A fabulous gift for those hard-to-buy-for architects!
