I just love the combination of architecure fantisy and traditional watercolour techniques that Scolari excels in IMO and like Rossi has a great understanding of colour in architecture. Like a comment I made in a review of Rossi's "Sketchbooks" I personally find the format too small to do the drawings justice but is a publishing decision I guess due to a percieved small market. A good book to stimulate hands on drawing and to get you away from the sterle computer generated image. I find these Italian publishers put out some great books on relatively unknown architects which I applaude.
