FORM contributor and newly-minted honorary AIA member Michael Webb has been doing some serious reading, checking in with a trio of book reviews over on the Views tab of the FORM Mag website. First is White Cube, Green Maze: New Art Landscapes, which documents a succession of inventive exhibitions at the Heinz Architectural Center in Pittsbugh curated by Raymund Ryan. Next is The Iconic Interior: Private Spaces of Leading Artists, Architects, and Designers, which Webb describes as a "gorgeous indulgence." Finally, Webb reviews Taschen's latest update of its collection of works by Pritzker Prize winning Japanese Architect Tadao Ando, Ando: Complete Works 1975-2012. The November/December print issue of FORM Magazine includes an interview with Ando, for those craving more of Ando's unique perspective.
