Planning Architecture PB
(50 items available)
In formulating design concepts, architects oscillate constantly between two planes of observation: the actual design task in the context of planning typologies such as residential buildings, office buildings, museum, or airport; and the individual room, meaning the kitchen, office, classroom, sanitary rooms, storage rooms, etc. Planning Architecture offers architects and students a well thought-out tool in which all relevant planning information is presented in context in a detailed, clear fashion. Two main sections complement one another: the "spaces" and the "typologies" between which the planner can flexibly oscillate depending on his or her plane of observation. These two sections are flanked by an introductory chapter explaining the basis and framework for typological design, as well as a “reference section” at the end of the book that clearly lists general dimensions and units, regulations and standards.
