forged by the science of materials and energy, and made into an art form by our creative instincts and search for meaning. It reflects culture and society as it responds to real and imagined human needs. Architecture is an integral part of our lives. Good design, often unnoticed, quietly facilitates the activities of everyday life. It is the architect’s challenge to create spaces that are perfectly attuned to the activities that take place within them. This text seeks to illuminate some of the tools and techniques at the architect’s disposal in facing this challenge. Perhaps, after studying the pages of this book, some of the qualities of buildings that were previously unnoticed will become apparent. To compile an introductory text that covers the many facets of architecture in a concise and coherent manner, we have compiled material from the following publications, all from Wiley. Additionally, all-new information has been generated for this text that addresses the relationship between architecture and its urban context.
