This second book in the BEST series explores the fundamental generators and contextual issues - philosophical, physical and political - that influence built environments. It draws on international examples to show how societies and cultures in different parts of the world react to similar problems. It contrasts dramatically different types of buildings and enclosures from primitive shelters to space laboratories. They show how mankind endeavours to control the environment - whatever it is.
