Editorial Reviews

"It's an astonishing range of engaging works that coroborate the stimulating imagination of a man determined to treat architecture as sculpture. [Henriquez's] buildings stand as a testament to his invention of fictional but convincing histories for every structure he creates. Each building has a story, each object a life, which a glance at any one of his projects will confirm."

— Vancouver Sun

"One of the delights of this book is its visual display: hand-painted sketches and renderings are generously featured alongside the conventional project photographs and plans. This provides a marvellous insight into the creative process, and also affirms its deeply humanistic underpinnings."

— Azure Magazine
