Product description

Note: This book is written in Portuguese/Spanish.

A visita a um edificio bem construido produz uma sensacao intensa, dificil de expressar por escrito. Todos, em algum momento, ja sentimos esta experienca incrivel, mistura de regozijo pela visao e de reaccao quase epidermica, que desperta, irremediavelmente, umaa admiracao profunda pelo autor. Tive a sorte de me dedicar a uma profissao que, para alemde me empurrar para um processo de enamoramento total pela Arquitectura, me permitiu conhecer de muito perto o complexo, dificilmo e responsavel processo que torna em edificia possivei, seja quel for a sua escala e o seu pais de origem.

Existe algo de incrivelmente magico nesta processo, quando ocorre - o que nao e sempre -, e que e o que determina necessariamente o resultado: o dialogo, a quimca, o entendimento profundo entre cliente e arquitecto. Estabelece-se entao um encontro entre dois profissionais cujos destinos se entrecruzam para conseguir algo muito importante (repito, mesmo que seja a uma escala humilde), porque o cliente soube encontrar um profissional que sabe o que e necessario quase melhor do ele propiro e o projectista pode trabalhar sob o estimulo que lhe permite sentir-se respeitado e admirado.

A visit to a well-constructed building produces an intense sensation, difficult to express in writing. Everyone, at some point, already feels this incredible experience, a mixture of rejoicing for the vision and an almost epidermal reaction, which awakens, irremediably, a deep admiration for the author. I was fortunate to dedicate myself to a profession that, in addition to pushing me into a process of total enamored with Architecture, allowed me to know very closely the complex, difficult and responsible process that makes building possible, regardless of its scale and your country of origin.

There is something incredibly magical in this process, when it occurs - which is not always - and that is what necessarily determines the result: the dialogue, the chemistry, the deep understanding between client and architect. There is a meeting between two professionals whose destinies intersect in order to achieve something very important (I repeat, even if it is on a humble scale), because the client was able to find a professional who knows what is necessary, and what designer can work under the stimulus that allows him to feel respected and admired.

There is very slight shelf wear to the dust jacket. Other than that, the book is in excellent condition throughout.
