Now in its fourth edition, Analysing Architecture has become internationally established as the best introduction to architecture. Aimed primarily at those wishing to become professional architects, it also offers those in disciplines related to architecture (from archaeology to stage design, garden design to installation art), a clear and accessible insight into the workings of this rich and fascinating subject. With copious illustrations from his own notebooks, the author dissects examples from around the world and all periods of history to explain underlying strategies in architectural design and show how drawing may be used as a medium for analysis. This new edition of Analysing Architecture is revised and expanded. Notably, the chapter on aBasic Elements of Architecturea has been enlarged to discuss the apowersa various architectural elements offer the architect. Three new chapters have been added to the section on aThemes in Spatial Organisationa, covering aOccupying the In-betweena, aInhabited Walla and aRefuge and Prospecta. Two new examples a a Mud House from Kerala, India and the Mongyo-tei (a tea house) from Kyoto, Japan a have been added to the aCase Studiesa at the end of the book. The aSelect Bibliographya has been expanded and the aIndexa revised. Works of architecture are instruments for managing, orchestrating, modifying our relationship with the world around us. They frame just about everything we do. Architecture is complex, subtle, frustrating... but ultimately extremely rewarding. It can be a difficult discipline to get to grips with; nothing in school quite prepares anyone for the particular demands of an architecture course. But this book will help. Analysing Architecture is the foundation volume of a series of books by Simon Unwin exploring the workings of architecture. Other books in the series include Twenty Buildings Every Architect Should Understand and Exercises in Architecture.But this book will help.
