Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Analysing Architecture" offers a "notebook" of architectural strategies to present an introduction to elements and concepts in architectural design. Illustrated throughout with the author's original drawings, examples are drawn from across architectural history (from primitive places to late 20th century structures) to illustrate analytical themes and to show how drawing can be used to study architecture.Simon Unwin clearly identifies the key elements of architecture and conceptual themes apparent in buildings. He describes ideas for use in the active process of design. Breaking down the grammar of architecture into themes and "moves", Unwin exposes its underlying patterns to reveal the organizational strategies that lie beneath the superficial appearances of buildings.Exploring buildings as results of the interaction of people with the world around them, "Analysing Architecture" offers a definition of architecture as "identification of place" and provides a greater understanding of architecture as a creative discipline. This book presents a powerful impetus for readers to develop their own capacities for architectural design. Updated and revised, this new edition includes more
