Compositions in Architecture gives students and young designers a method for architectural composition to solve problems and organize ideas. Connecting architectural theory with the design process, this book succeeds in relating what happens in the design studio with how the designer thinks about architecture. In addition to explaining ideas about architectural composition, concepts embedded in diverse intellectual traditions and cultures are presented. By making analogies between architectural ideas throughout the world and through the ages, the formal structures in architecture are revealed. This inspiring introduction to architecture will allow users think in new ways to solve problems.
