Amazing Book - 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful.Amazing Book By RC In Situ: George Ranalli Works and Projects is an amazing book. Although I am not an architect, I hope to do it justice. The book is a treatise on contrast in context. Acknowledging differences between people and architecture, the work pursues unity through an enriched, functional aesthetic. Geometric form, easily associated to the built environment. outlines broad themes, softened by offshoots, such as a certain slant of sunlight, speckled brick, curves, terra cotta, brass, bronze, and something Iâve have always loved about Ranalliâs work - plywood. The uses of practical, reasonable materials make for sophisticated design. Having lived my whole life in the City of New York, I canât help but notice the workâs mindfulness about people. Architecture rambles âoff the grid,â adding variety, and ornamental elements enthuse delight. All this is done with an eye toward people, their practical uses, and their economics, another nod to the humans that makes the architecture real, and New York a little more New York.

Although many more to come, the publication shows the overall architectural mastery of George Ranalli through out his decorated career. This book is also academically special, since it displays his commitment to the details, drawings, and craftsmanship of architecture. His work ethic and approaches to his work are well displayed within this volume. 'In Situ' is a must buy for all serious architects and students of architecture.
