A landmark book for our generation, "Architectural Excellence" provides a unifying theory for architectural design with a decidedly non-western, culturally neutral perspective. This work addresses the controversial subject of what constitutes architectural excellence and what if any, should be the guiding principles for buildings design. It provides rational guidelines for practitioners as they seek to create an architecture that is authentic to a society's culture. "Architectural Excellence" encourages international practitioners and students of architecture to design buildings that will stand the test of time - the ultimate test of architectural excellence.
