The author's love for his subject matter is evident and makes for an enlightening and enjoyable read. Well researched, well written, and overflowing with great photos, the book brings into plain view the relationship between graphic design and architecture - a link that's always been there but is too often overlooked.

An incredibly thorough and informative read into a subject-matter not many authors have divulged. Poulin's narrative showcases an exciting array of architectural and environmental exploration over many decades, and each environment is presented in a beautiful and information-driven design. One-of-a-kind reference everyone should have!

Brilliant! It's unlike any history book I've read. Many are terribly didactic, but this book is written in an engaging narrative style -- a great read!
