“Beginning with the root definition of architecture as its “conceptual
organization, its intellectual structures”., the author makes clear its
function as “identification of place”, goes on to identify the basic
elements and concepts, examines the use of natural features of the
landscape, analyzes primitive place types, geometry in architecture, space
and structure, and other key concepts.
>From the campsites of primitive man to the sophisticated structures of the
late twentieth century, architecture as an essential function of human
activity is explained clearly, and illustrated with the author’s own
excellent drawings. Highly recommended as a well-organized and readable
(it’s by my old design theory tutor from architecture college…)
