Manual of Section
(50 items available)
Manual of Section will articulate for all students and practitioners how the logic of the section is instrumental to architecture, through a series of intricate cross-section perspectives of important buildings of the 20th and 21st centuries. The authors have developed seven categories of section, revealed in structures ranging from simple one-storey buildings to complex structures featuring stacked forms, fantastical shapes, internal holes, inclines, sheared planes, and nested forms.To illustrate these categories, the authors construct sixty-three intricately detailed cross-section perspective drawings of built projects - many of the most significant structures in international architecture from the last one hundred years - based on extensive archival research. Manual of Section also includes smart and accessible essays on the history and uses of section.
