Look Inside

Architecture: form, space, & order, fourth edition Ebook

For more than thirty-five years, the beautifully illustrated Architecture: Form, Space, and Order has been the classic introduction to the basic vocabulary of architectural design. The updated Fourth Edition features new contemporary examples of precedent-making architecture, and analyzes the space and form of various building types. This classic visual reference helps both students and practicing architects understand the basic vocabulary of architectural design by examining how form and space are ordered in the built environment. Using his trademark meticulous drawing, Professor Ching shows the relationship between fundamental elements of architecture through the ages and across cultural boundaries. By looking at these seminal ideas, Architecture: Form, Space, and Order encourages the reader to look critically at the built environment and promotes a more evocative understanding of architecture. In addition to updates to content and many of the illustrations, this new edition includes an expanded and enhanced online Interactive Resource Center that brings the book’s architectural concepts to life through narrated animations created by Professor Ching, flashcards highlighting key terms, and an image bank featuring photos of the projects discussed in the book.
