Dancing about Architecture does exactly what it says; although it is not a book about architecture. Or dancing. What’s more, it is not a compendium of ideas, even though you’ll find plenty of outrageous and powerful ideas here. It is a book about how to go about getting new ideas, not to mention learning how to take more risks in the process. But the ideas this book will help you generate aren’t nice and safe ideas. These are the ideas that you might expect from one of the UK’s most challenging educationalists.
