Description

The revered architectural reference, updated with contemporary examples and interactive 3D models

Architecture: Form, Space, and Order, Fourth Edition is the classic introduction to the basic vocabulary of architectural design, updated with new information on emerging trends and recent developments. This bestselling visual reference helps both students and professionals understand the vocabulary of architectural design by examining how space and form are ordered in the environment.

Essential and timeless, the fundamental elements of space and form still present a challenge to those who crave a deeper understanding. Taking a critical look at the evolution of spaces, Architecture distills complex concepts of design into a clear focus that inspires, bringing difficult abstractions to life. The book is illustrated throughout to demonstrate the concepts presented, and show the relationships between fundamental elements of architecture through the ages and across cultures. Topics include:

  • Primary elements and the principles of space design
  • Form and space, including light, view, openings, and enclosures
  • Organization of space, and the elements and relationships of circulation
  • Proportion and scale, including proportioning systems and anthropometry
