Reviews

Easily one of the best architecture critics around ... Sorkin is a flaneur with a sense of public purpose.
*Guardian*

America's most invigorating writer on architecture.
*Observer*

Sorkin is one of the most intelligent writers on architecture today.
*Library Journal*

Sorkin is a formidable opponent of the banal, the ugly, the stupid and the vapidly posturing which, he argues, are all around us.
*Publishers Weekly*

[A]n intense mediation on the role of democracy in architecture, the role of the critic in that democracy and the dilemmas facing an architect who wants to make a difference (by working with that democracy) but needs to make a living (by pleasing an economic and political elite) ... One of the most impressive collections of contemporary criticism you could read.
*Art Review*

All Over the Map is a pleasure to read
*Times Literary Supplement*
