John Marx is of the generation of design architects who witnessed their pencils morph into mouses and their drafting tables into computer desktops. Throughout this transition, he has maintained a remarkable aesthetic consistency in his architectural projects. Wandering the Garden of Technology and Passion is a study of digital design through Marx's work. This beautifully illustrated book traces the professional path of an architect whose mastery of digital tools transformed his practice into a global player, but who still manages to hold on to the intimate qualities of a boutique practice.


Pierluigi Serraino is a practicing architect residing in the San Francisco Bay Area. He is the author of many books on architecture, including Eero Saarinen,NorCalMod, and TASCHEN's Modernism Rediscovered. His articles and projects have appeared in magazines and journals such as Architectural Design, ArCA, Global Architecture, Hunch, Costruire, and Architettura. He lives in San Francisco, CA
