    Perfect Tea Cup for A Coffee Drinker- SHoP is not my cup of tea... just to start with a coffee drinker's inside joke, OK seriously, I’m not a SHoP enthusiast but this is the best example of what portfolio should be. The book is a thick 420 pages volume, but 8.3 x 10.3 dimensions kept it petit, green canvas panel with no annoying dust cover enhanced its perfection. The page format is simple and direct. The projects are organized in sequence that began with writing and diagrams to guide you to the Perfect Tea Cup for A Coffee Drinker- SHoP is not my cup of tea... just to start with a coffee drinker's inside joke, OK seriously, I’m not a SHoP enthusiast but this is the best example of what portfolio should be. The book is a thick 420 pages volume, but 8.3 x 10.3 dimensions kept it petit, green canvas panel with no annoying dust cover enhanced its perfection. The page format is simple and direct. The projects are organized in sequence that began with writing and diagrams to guide you to the core of project intentions. Then process studies, finished drawings, follow by money-shot renderings and/or photographs of finished buildings. It’s extremely clear, logical, modest and pleasant. I would definitely use this book as an example for my portfolio-making seminar.

Ojear este volumen me ha dejado muy satisfecho, el Shop (Sharples, Holden, and Pasquarelli) es una firma joven de arquitectura basada en la ciudad de nueva york, con seis socios fundadores ha demostrado el valor de la arquitectura tecnológica en nuestros días. Todos ellos con una maestría en arquitectura por la Columbia Graduate School of Architecture. Este libro es su primer monográfico y demuestra de una manera muy clara la trayectoria y sobre todo la praxis resultante de una sólida filosofía. Ojear este volumen me ha dejado muy satisfecho, el estudio profundo me deja claro lo que es lograr un monográfico a fondo. Sin protagonismos de los individuos el contenido transparentemente muestra lo que hay detrás de cada proyecto. Desde los primeros encargos hasta los proyectos de gran escala que ejecutan en estos momentos, todos sin duda congruentes a su filosofía. Este trabajo deja en claro lo que una firma moderna de arquitectura puede hacer para una ciudad y una sociedad como la neoyorquina, donde su eje de desarrollo se ha centrado. La calidad de los textos, imágenes, bocetos y dibujos arquitectónicos es extraordinaria. Exhaustivo y profesional, referencia indiscutible.
