Inspiring Architecture: Poetry of Place book review


Poetry of Place is one of my favorite books of the year, hands down.  Perusing the book is like taking a tour through some of the most beautiful homes and properties I’ve ever seen, and the photography makes the escape complete.

Poetry of Place: The New Architecture and Interiors of McAlpine (Rizzoli 2017). Continuing the story from his best selling first book, Bobby McAlpine picks up where he left off delving into the heart’s longing for home and breaking the rules of traditional architecture, harvesting what is true to tell your own story.”
