Description
While visiting unique spots around the world, architect Avi Friedman wondered what made strolling through, sitting in, or simply being in such places memorable; he also pondered what makes them disappear. "We may stumble across them by accident or be directed there by others," he writes, "but they need to be experienced firsthand to be appreciated and kept among our treasured memories." Documented here in 12 thoughtful essays, Friedman's travels take him to such vibrant metropolises as London and Hong Kong, but also to a squatter settlement in Tijuana, Mexico; a playground in Petach Tivka, Israel; a market in Dalian, China; and the streets of Fargo, North Dakota, on a winter day.
