Description

The Study of Architectural Design by John F. Harbeson is the only text in English that describes, step by step, the system of architectural education developed in France and commonly known as the Beaux-Arts method as it was adapted and refined to suit the structure and demands of American schools of architecture. Used to train every architect in America until the late 1940s, it was supplanted by the advent of modernism.

With Harbeson's clear approach to teaching the system, students and practitioners can recover the classic course of study for use today, from the making of the initial sketch, through development, to the rendering of the project for presentation to clients.
