This book will provide a definitive reader, compiling essays from previously published texts and newly commissioned essays from leading academics, architects and other specialists, each text is prefaced by a brief critical and accessible introduction by Mark Garcia and illustrated with the first-ever collection of spatial design diagrams by architects, engineers, academics and designers from around the world. Case-study single-page and double page spread ‘capsules’ distributed throughout the book describe the creation, meaning and importance of the most important diagrams in today’s leading-edge exemplars of interior, architectural, landscape and urban design.
