Johnston Marklee: Source Books in Architecture by Benjamin Wilke is a non-fiction environment book written for research purposes. It contains a range of built and unbuilt works documented by architects aiming to develop a critical approach to formulate practical ideas. It comprises a series of illustrations, including drawings, diagrams, photos, and models prevalent in architecture. The models adopted are presented so that generations can coexist with each other. They act as catalysts for reinvention in modernism. This book is both conservative and conversational. The ideas presented in the text offer diverse opinions and aim to engage those willing to pursue a career in architecture.
I've always been fascinated by shapes and structures. The idea of creating something substantial with a certain complexity is intriguing. I like how this book is detail-oriented. Benjamin Wilke's writing is unique. He explains everything in great detail regarding the process involved in the construction, the importance of choosing a perfect location, and the adaptability of a particular structure to correspond well with its environment. Johnston Marklee: Source Books in Architecture undertakes a rational approach toward building and construction. The ideas generated are worth sharing because they have educational value. I was mesmerized by how vast the field of this study is. I also admire how interactive and idealistic the book is. It's worth a read.
