If you could choose only ten buildings to bring with you to a deserted island, what would they be?  These are Eisenman's, and he explains in great detail and depth why they should be yours too. 

This book is the finest example of Eisenman's incisive formal analysis of architecture, which he first developed in his 1963 PhD dissertation, "The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture". Eisenman very closely reads the 10 buildings and uses diagrams, photographs, drawings, and texts to demonstrate his findings.

Pages are clean, crisp, and like-new. Boards have very minor wear to edges and corners. Jacket has edge and corner wear, as well as very minor rubbing. Near fine book in good jacket. Very good + overall.

The 317 illustrations feature original beautiful analytical diagrams of each project.

The 10 canonical buildings are :
Luigi Moretti, Casa "Il Girasole," 1947-50
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Farnsworth House, 1946-51
Le Corbusier, Palais des Congrès-Strasbourg, 1962-64
Louis I. Kahn, Adler House and De Vore House, 1954-55
Robert Venturi, Vanna Venturi House, 1959-64
James Stirling, Leicester Engineering Building, 1959-63
Aldo Rossi, Cemetery of San Cataldo, 1971-78
Rem Koolhaas, Jussieu Libraries, 1992-98
Daniel Libeskind, Jewish Museum, 1989-99
Frank O. Gehry, Peter B. Lewis Building,1997-2002

"Peter Eisenman, renowned for his own controversial and influential body of work, looks at ten leading architects of the twentieth century and their theoretical positions, technological innovations, and design contributions. Eisenman identifies a project within the oeuvre of each of these architects—Luigi Moretti, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn, Robert Venturi, James Stirling, Aldo Rossi, Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Libeskind, and Frank Gehry—that has profoundly affected architectural discourse and practice. With drawings, diagrams, and always-incisive text, he presents each architect’s theoretical position, and then offers detailed critical analysis of the project." - from the dust jacket flap
