  • Scaleby Gerald Adler; Timothy Brittain-Catlin; Gordana Fontana-Giusti

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 59.95

    Scale is a word which underlies much of architectural and urban design practice, its history and theory, and its technology. Its connotations have traditionally been linked with the humanities, in the sense of relating to human societies and to human form. ‘To build in scale’ is an aspiration that is usually taken for granted by most of those involved... more...

    Today, with the advent of digital media technologies and the ability to conceptualize, express and produce complex forms using digital means, the question of the status of the architectural form is once again under consideration.

  • Model Making for Architectsby Matt Driscoll

    Crowood 2013; US$ 18.99

    Model making is a beautiful and skilful craft, and architectural model making is a vital part of the building process.

Model Making for Architects explains the role... more...

  • Architecture and Embodimentby Harry Francis Mallgrave

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 53.95

    In recent years we have seen a number of dramatic discoveries within the biological and related sciences.

If... more...

  • Nexus Network Journal 12,3by Kim Williams

    Birkhäuser Basel 2013; US$ 85.60
