Description

Architecture, Life and Me is one man's journey discovering the many facets of life through the practice of architecture. Garnished with elegant sketches and interesting snippets of information about the art of architecture, the author shares his formative encounters with this field, while he takes a trip down memory lane, exploring all arts and their tangible and intangible relationship with design.

Crossing the boundaries between architecture, other arts and semi-preachment, simple essays conjoin to form a candid memoir that captures the beauty, soul and inspiration of architecture.
