Book Review: Green Dream - by The Why Factory
Finally, the book itself is a well designed document. The variation of font size makes the reading easy and appeals to the designer in us. Bold and clear info-graphics grace the pages to illustrate the main points, while full bleed color images presents the various proposals and their captivating renderings. The paper is heavy and feels good in your hand as you flip through the pages. The only criticism here would be that the inner margin could have been a bit larger, providing a little more white on the page and easier reading as you get deep within the thick book. However, this is a minor point to a great addition to any architect's personal library.
