The Architecture of Happiness

Intriguing. I’ve heard good things about de Botton, and have been meaning to read some of his work. And I like traditional architectural styles; glad to see there are still esteemed thinkers who believe in their importance, notwithstanding the still all-too-pervasive gushing over Modernism / Brutalism in the architecture world today…

Good on de Botton, championing the good.

  1. I looked up Botton after I’d written my review, and it’s considered a very fine introduction to the subject.
