Juhani Pallasmaa sent me this book, and with it, his commentary on a couple of my draft chapters of Being: An Architect and how well he had appreciated the sincerity and literary quality of Barack Obama’s first book, Dreams from My Father. Juhani mentions his growing appreciation of other writings and how thought is shared and layered over time. He mentions Frank R. Wilson’s book The Hand: How its Use Shapes the Brain, Language, and Human Culture (1999); and Richard Sennett’s book The Crafsman (2008).
