This book fell into my lap, just as I was becoming more interested in the spiritual power of architecture. There are many gems in this collection and I enjoy how the author weaves together seemingly disparate things. There are also excellent photos and illustrations. That being said, it falls a little to heavy on the "personal philosophy as fact" side of the spectrum, which in the end, turned me off. It's a great book to take a look at though - great ideas and great photos.
