Architecture: An Introduction

Published by Laurence King in 2010, my first book offers a thorough introduction to the entire field of architecture, outlining the steps that are normally taken in becoming a qualified architect, from initial education right through to professional practice, as well as how to apply this architectural training in other fields. Complete with feature spreads on individual projects, Architecture’s broad, up-to-date approach unites history, theory and practice. Subjects covered include how to develop a brief with a client; taking an idea from brief to project; types of visual presentation including drawings, models and computer renderings; project planning and management; the diverse roles within a company; and the future of architectural practice. This book is a must for anyone considering taking an architecture course or just beginning one.
