Happy Valentine's Day! Here are a few books that we love:

A vision of architecture that transcends concerns of form and function and finds the connections between the architect's wish to design a beautiful world and architecture's imperative to provide a better place for society.
A self-described failed filmmaker falls obsessively in love with her theorist-husband's colleague: a manifesto for a new kind of feminism and the power of first-person narration.
A vision of architecture that includes sculpture, machines, and technology and encapsulates the history of the human species.
A psychological exploration of how the love of nature can coexist in our psyches with apathy toward environmental destruction.
An exploration of the sensuous and the passionate, as expressed in operas by Mozart and Beethoven.
