    Understanding Architecture Through Drawing

    Brian Edwards, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK

    This new edition is an introduction to design and graphic techniques aimed to helpdesigners increase their understanding of buildings and places through drawing. Formany people the camera has replaced the sketchbook, but the author argues thatfreehand drawing as a means of analyzing and understanding buildings develops visualsensitivity and awareness of design.

    There is a balance of drawing techniques explained as well as guidance provided onhow drawing interfaces with with photography, CAD and model making in the genesisof design projects. This second edition incorporates examples from architecturalpractice, including those of architects such as Lord Foster, Sir Terry Farrell, EdwardCullinan, Richard Murphy and Sir Nicholas Grimshaw.

    DoorwaySimon Unwin, University of Dundee, UK

    Though we may take them for granted, doorways impinge on our lives in many ways.Their powers are even richer and more varied than those of the wall. They can change theways we behave, and alter how we see our surroundings. They challenge us and protectour territories. They punctuate our experiences as we move from place to place. They setthe geometry and measure of our relationship with space. They frame the in-betweenand stand as crystalizations of the moment. With its many dimensions, the doorway is anessential component of what might be called the common language of architecture.

    Illustrated with numerous drawings and photographs, Doorway is a stimulus to thinkingabout what can be done with architecture. The notebook style offers an example tostudent architects of how they might keep their own architecture notebooks, collectingideas, sorting strategies, generally expanding their understanding of the potential ofarchitecture to modify the world in practical, philosophical and poetic ways.

    Colour for Architecture TodayEdited by Tom Porter and Byron Mikellides, Oxford Brookes University, UK

    Colour for Architecture Today argues for a greater use of colour in our built environmenton the grounds of both aesthetic appeal and human need; colour plays a vital role inensuring a widely experienced existence. The authors arguments for a wider use ofcolour are supported by invited contributions from leading architects and designers.

    Colour for Architecture Today aims at a balance between scientific colour and lightresearch and environmental applications by architects and designers.

    Randall Thomas, Consultant, Max Fordham LLP, London,UK and Trevor Garnham, Kingston University, KingstonUpon Thames, UK

    The Environments of Architecture sets out a range of considerations necessary toproduce appropriate internal environments in the context of a wider discussion on theeffect of building decisions on the broader environment.

    The authors, from architecture and engineering, both academia and practice, provide arounded and well-balanced introduction to this important topic. Starting from a beliefthat the built environment can contribute more positively to the planet and the pleasureof places as well as answering the practical demands of comfort, they cover site planning,form, materials, construction and operation as well as looking at design on a city level.

    Presenting a thoughtful and stimulating approach to the built environment, this bookforms an excellent guide for practitioners, students and academics concerned with ourbuilt environment.
