Basics Architecture: Architectural Design explains the mysterious and little-discussed process of designing architectural projects. Through discussion and case studies, it allows the reader to develop a personal approach to architectural design, based on their own values, skills and preoccupations. This book sets architectural design education within its context by describing the design studio and explaining the activities that take place there. The realities of the design process, and the relationship between education and practice, are explored in detail. The book describes each stage of development, from concept through to completion, and includes interviews with leading architectural practices. The architectural design process is as diverse as the people who practise it; every architect follows their own individual design process. Basics Architecture: Architectural Design introduces a number of different processes through examples and case studies. This allows a reader to identify with certain methods that they could develop to respond to their own work, and enables them to develop their own unique approach.
