By Diogo Brito
With ‘ToolBook’, Diogo Brito authors a practical publication about architectural practice in the everyday life of architects. From a formal perspective, the book is written as if it were a screenplay for a movie, as both the scriptwriter and the architect must be creative within a set of rules, assumptions, conditions, or limitations. Brito, a founding partner of the Portuguese office OODA, looks at projects by Foster + Partners, Steven Holl, Fernando Romero, Bjarke Ingels, Kengo Kuma, and Eduardo Souto de Moura in order to analyse the working processes of architects through critical narration of various ways of being and doing, thereby building a set of useful tools for both students and architects.
