    Many books can show you Stirling s great job, but what I love the most about this book is this personal view Many never before seen drawings, models and photos starting from his student period until his untimely death Remember talking about that mythical napkin design Well here you can see than one and the design process Love it.

    Anthony Vidler s volume on James Stirling s Archive is a first rate review summation of the consummate 20th century architect s work James Stirling was a briliant yet sometimes unappreciated talent Vidler s work will further fortify those of us who have always been attentive to his contributions In the 1970 s many of those of us who had graduated from Architectural school looked to JS s theory and work as inspirational and instructive on a level with masters of the art such as Alvar Aalto and Aldo van Eyck Stirling s work should continue to inspire today s graduates who need the example of earlier masters to help them find their own best way Vidler s volume should be of great help to each of them as they begin their careers.Thanks for your circulation of this important work with my Best Regards, R.O DiSaia
