design & construction | Birkhauser

This reference work on the core competence of architects and designers provides a thorough and considered overview of the tools and theories, means and methods and practices and possibilities of creative design. In this substantially expanded edition, a review of recent developments since the first edition has been added, the chapters on digital tools have been updated, and a new, extensive practice section describes the foundations of digital, research-based processes and social agendas in design. The author "demonstrates compellingly that design is a synthesis of creative, technical and architectural skills coupled with academic research and reflection. Enlightening " (Christian Thomas on the first edition). "Insight into the craft of design. Light in the darkness of how ideas take shape." (Jesko Fezer).
