Description
Information
Continuing in the holistic philosophy of the Technologies of Architecture series, this volume examines the various layers of knowledge, skills and mechanisms that make up the many approaches to the essential function of technical design in the creation of successful buildings. Well-illustrated with case studies, the author draws on his extensive experience in architectural education to provide a detailed description of the development process, acknowledging traditional solutions whilst also encouraging designers to consider innovative alternatives. Attention is paid to materials choices, detail design and specification writing. Students of architectural technology in particular, but also of architecture, building surveying and construction will find this syllabus-relevant title an invaluable asset in embracing their environmental responsibilities as designers and actively participating in the development of technical design language.
