In Building Up and Tearing Down: Reflections on the Age of Architecture, he looks at skyscrapers, museums, airports, monuments, suburban shopping malls, and white-brick apartment houses. His book Why Architecture Matters looks at how architecture affects us emotionally and intellectually.

This bothers me.
First, he spoke of himself not as a scientist. Then he somehow went on to call those scientists who he agrees with as "respectable"(he's not even logical!). He doesn't seem to understand that those scientists in the opposite position are who make the science more sound. He is in no position and has no knowledge sufficient to judge a scientist.
