From the Publisher. This architectural autobiography distills the wisdom and experience gained from many years of practice and teaching into a deeply felt book intended for those interested in or about to embark on the profession of architecture. Focusing on the unique position of architecture among the arts, Pelli analyzes eight ‘’connections‘‘ that influence both the artistic and practical aspects of architecture: time, construction, place, purpose, culture, design process, constituency, and oneself. Each connection is discussed in relation to historic and contemporary examples as well as to examples from Pelli’s own built work. (out of print)
