Creation in Space: A Course in the Fundamentals of Architecture Volume 1: Architectronics
Designer: Brand: Kendall Hunt Pub Co
Creation in Space: Fundamentals of Architecture, Volumes 1 and 2, by Jonathan Friedman, provide all basic projects, guided instruction, commentaries, and selected readings for a full year course in the fundamentals of architecture. It is designed to cover not only the normal technical requirements - drawing skills and techniques such as planimetrics, axonometrics and perspective projection, freehand drawing, and abrication skills for model making - but also fundamental design issues such as figure-ground ambiguity, proportion, scale, light and shade, and circulation. The two volumes of Creation in Space together provide a basic introduction to understanding architecture. The works assume no previous knowledge of the subject, only that all of us were architects as young children playing with blocks.
