`Nikos Salingaros is a mathematician who`s also a brilliant thinker about architecture and urbanism. `Solid` doesn`t begin to hint at his virtues and talents, but isn`t it nice when you encounter `solid` in the world of the arts? Salingaros has worked closely with Christopher Alexander, and has become a major architecture theorist in his own right.` -- Ray Sawhill.
`This is an interesting compilation of some of the important roots and evolutions of modernism and its latest development, the Deconstruction style. This new work is a revealing glimpse behind the curtain of the contemporary high-end architectural establishment, and the underlying human motivations and misapprehensions which have brought us to our present disoriented way-point. A lot of psychology, and some remarkable philosophy can be found here. There is also a wonderful and thought-provoking thematic presentation of a viral metaphor, which has far-reaching implications.` -- Dirk Visser.
