This book is a journey in which, by the drawing and through his personal vision, Ángel Luis Tendero analyzes with simple and accessible language, themes such as space and form. He discusses how we can extract from the observation of our environment the necessary tools for architectural design. Through this comic presentation, Tendero avoids a debate about contemporary architecture. Instead he uses New York, one of the most contemporary cities, as an example and creates an awareness of the built environment through the landscape of architects' own dreams, with references to movies and classic comics.
