Kind of like the theory that a literary text is never closed, but is temporarily appropriated in its reading and rereading, Brand, of Whole Earth Catalog fame, proposes that buildings adapt best when constantly refined and reshaped by their occupants, and that architects can grow from artists of space into artists of time. As a resource or just as a read, Brand shows how to work with time rather than against it. He provides loads of examples and loads of photographs and drawings. 11x8.75" Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

I plan on buying this one - maybe later edition - though it stands test of time as a resource for architects and designers.

The content of this book was very interesting. The book format really stunk though. It's a wide, 2 column a page book that made it awkward to sit and read comfortably.
