hey, is there a book that features that nono piano project. i've been looking for images of that but all i've seen are two images always used.

the art of memory said...

thanks mr. america for the list, i will check them out, i like garland's radio deal, but have not listened much to the music.

steve, the piano space is in quite a few books i have seen:
the huge taschen book
"renzo piano building workshop: visible cities"
"architecture & music: renzo piano building workshop" (if i remember is good)
"renzo piano spirit of nature wood arch. award" (has about 10 pages on it with plans)
and i think the phaidon complete works has some.
see you in texas.
