Precedents in Architecture provides students with a foundation for understanding architecture and creating their own designs through the examination of works by internationally known architects. A unique diagrammatic technique is used to analyze over 100 existing buildings and illustrate meaningful architectural concepts. Students become familiar thinking in terms of parti- the assumptions behind an architectural design and the choices made when realizing that design. The new Fourth Edition will examine work by current well-known architects from around the world that have emerged in the field in the past decade.
