Description:

Finally: one resource that permits designers to use architectural terminology as a tool to generate ideas and inform their designs. The first reference created to use words and their meanings to help readers both understand and start the design process, this invaluable tool goes beyond identification of elements to look at the possibilities of design. Using double-page spreads that fully explore each of the common terms used in space and form, the designer is engaged to apply the terms and create spaces and techniques for communicating their ideas. An Introduction explains how the reader can use the five categories in the design process -- Procedural/Generative, Organizational/Ordering. Operative/Experiential, Object/ Assembly, and Representation/Communication -- to easily find the concept for which they are looking. Designed to permit the reader to grow as they master the design process, Language of Space and Form is meant to be a reference used throughout their education, from the beginning design studio to the studio practice.
