New York Magazine Review

The drawings in this collection are as fresh as the day they were drawn. Not made or signed with the intention of being works of art, these are professional working designs and plans for particular public buildings, gardens, fountains or Utopian architectural projects. Viewing them today lifts them out of the context of their original purpose and compels us to see them through the prism of our own 21st century eyes.
