Two things really pissed me off:
We were crossing the Alpine passes into southern Germany and got turned around. The Bavarian countryside was growing dark, and the map was in the back, so we pulled off the road to get it. As I climbed out of the van, I looked around to orient myself. We were in the middle of a vast open space. Then through the darkness, I saw a mommoth stone structure with a n imposing wrought-iron gate....... then it came to me : This was the Nuremberg stadium....
BOLLOX - its surrounded by the city suburbs - you cannot be lost and there..... oooohhhh dramatic license to suggest fate brought him there.... bollox
All that guff trying to make it look like his designs are tapping into some sort of memory and fated to be designed in such a way...
I actually cannot put it into words just how annoying this book is or how much I think he has lowered his own reputation by writing it. He just comes across as a whinger....
