Syntopical Reading
The idea of Syntopical Reading, as developed and practiced by Adler, is to read several books at once while engaging the authors in a dialog which asks them to address issues which may or not be directly treated in their books. In this exercise, the query is what does their work in combination have to tell us about the work of designing, building and using public buildings? This syntopical exercise is best done by a ValueWeb® exploring ideas together in context of executing a project.
