Editorial Reviews
"Andy Pressman has effectively bridged the artificial gap that has developed between art, science, and professional practice in architecture. . . . This book is a crucial beginning in your search for excellence in professional practice."—From the Foreword by Richard A. Eribes, PhD, AIA
