Pressestimmen"Ann Cline has succeeded admirably in assessing the crisis ofarchitectural meaning in what seem to me to be the only authenticterms possible... It is the way Cline handles [her] themes--themature personal insight she invests them with--that give her book itsoriginality, its edge, and its profound humanity." Indra McEwan
