THE CLASSIC ARCHITECTURAL REFERENCE, UPDATED WITH
CONTEMPORARY EXAMPLES AND INTERACTIVE RESOURCES


For more than forty years, the beautifully illustrated
Architecture: Form, Space, and Order has served as the
classic introduction to the basic vocabulary of architectural
design. The updated and revised Fourth Edition features the
fundamental elements of space and form and is designed to encourage
critical thought in order to promote a more evocative understanding
of architecture.


Architecture: Form, Space, and Order distills complex
concepts of design into a clear focus and brings difficult
abstractions to life. The book explains form and space in relation
to light, view, openings, and enclosures and explores the
organization of space, and the elements and relationships of
circulation, as well as proportion and scale. In addition, the
text?s detailed illustrations demonstrate the concepts
presented and reveal the relationships between fundamental elements
of architecture through the ages and across cultures.


This edition includes an access card with a redemption code for
the online Interactive Resource Center, which features
thirty-five animations, flashcards of key architectural terms, and
an image gallery showcasing hundreds of photos that enrich the
book?s content.
