Author : Bryan Lawson
Description:This unique guide provides a systematic overview of the idea of architectural space.Bryan Lawson provides an ideal introduction to the topic, breaking down the complex and abstract terms used by many design theoreticians when writing about architectural space. Instead, our everyday knowledge is reintroduced to the language of design. Design values of space are challenged and informed to stimulate a new theoretical and practical approach to design.This book views architectural and urban spaces as psychological, social and partly cultural phenomena. They accommodate, separate, structure, facilitate, heighten and even celebrate human spatial behaviour.* Helps to reconnect your everyday implicit knowledge with your professional conceptual knowledge* Gain a greater understanding of clients by questioning the values you commonly hold* Promotes easier communication by taking the abstract idea of space and placing it in real terms
