Ok, let's hear it - what did you get for Christmas?

I got The Architecture of Happiness, but haven't cracked it open yet.

Interesting book, although I'm only a couple of chapters in so far. Was thinking about it yesterday as I listened to the latest Radio 4 Open Book documentary:

Did you catch any of the TV program that accompanied it?

I got a lot, finally everyone gets that I really do want more books for Christmas. Two I am most excited about are the Chapel of St. Ignatius and Carme Pinos: an architecture of Overlay. The Chapel by Holl, has a great introduction by Gerald Cobb. The building is a beauty, based in history and concept. The Pinos book I haven't gotten too far into, but I am happy she is getting recognition apart from Miralles. Well deserved.

War in the Age of Intelligent Machines by Manuel DeLanda and The Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord. Both of those are excellent. And my picture book for the year was Morphosis Vol. IV.
