Forming and Centering    :  Nearly every work of architecture can be characterized by specific approaches to forming and centering. An awareness of these  underpinnings  would facilitate a more informed approach to architectural design problems  as well as a deeper understanding of the central issues (and flaws) embodied by completed works of architecture.  But the addressing of such topics has generally remained multifarious and diverse  more in the nature of a collection of independe...

Information Design    :  Information Design provides citizens, business and government with a means of presenting and interacting with complex information. It embraces applications from wayfinding and map reading to forms design; from website and screen layout to instruction. Done well it can communicate across languages and cultures, convey complicated instructions, even change behaviours. Information Design offers an authoritative guide to this important multidisciplinary subject. Th...

Memos from a Theatre Lab    :  What does immersive theatre ‘do’?  By contrasting two specific performances on the same theme - one an 'immersive' experience and the other a more conventional theatrical production - Nandita Dinesh explores the different ways in which theatrical form impacts upon actors and audiences. An in-depth case study of her work Pinjare (Cages) sets out the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of her specific aesthetic framework. Memos from a Theatre Lab places Dinesh’s practical wo...

Design Governance    :    Design Governance focuses on how we design the built environment where most of us live, work, and play and the role of government in that process. To do so, it draws on the experience of the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE), a decade-long, globally unique experiment in the governance of design. This book theorises design governance as an arm and aspiration of the state; tells the story of CABE, warts and all, and what came before an...

Introducing Architectural Tectonics    ::  <P><EM>Introducing Architectural Tectonics</EM> is an exploration of the poetics of construction. Tectonic theory is an integrative philosophy examining the relationships formed between design, construction, and space while creating or experiencing a work of architecture. In this text, author Chad Schwartz presents an introductory investigation into tectonic theory, subdividing it into distinct concepts in order to make it accessible to beginn...

Self-Regulated Design Learning    ::  <P><EM>Self-Regulated Design Learning: A Foundation and Framework for Teaching and Learning Design</EM> reframes how educators in architecture, landscape architecture, and other design disciplines think about teaching and learning design. The book weaves together concepts of constructivism, social cognitive theory, and self-regulated learning into a solid theoretical foundation for innovative teaching that emphasizes meaning, memory, problem solvin...

The Ten Most Influential Buildings in History    ::  <P>Even the most inventive and revolutionary architects of today owe debts to the past, often to the distant past when architecture really was being invented for the first time. Architects depend on their own imaginations for personal insights and originality but their ideas may be stimulated (consciously or subliminally) by particularly powerful buildings from history. <EM>The Ten Most Influential Buildings in History: Architecture’...

Visioning Technologies    :  Visioning Technologies brings together a collection of texts from leading theorists to examine how architecture has been, and is, reframed and restructured by the visual and theoretical frameworks introduced by different ‘technologies of sight’ – understood to include orthographic projection, perspective drawing, telescopic devices, photography, film and computer visualization, amongst others. Each chapter deals with its own area and historical period of ex...
