SYNOPSIS : A survey of the built environment distills the work of legendaryauthor and illustrator Francis D. K. Ching into a single volume Introduction to Architecture presents the essential textsand drawings of Francis D. K. Ching for those new to architectureand design. With his typical highly graphic approach, this is thefirst introductory text from Ching that surveys the design ofspaces, buildings, and cities. In an easy to understand format,readers will explore the histories and theories of architecture,design elements and process, and the technical aspects of thecontemporary profession of architecture. The book explains the experience and practice of architectureand allied disciplines for future professionals, while those wholove the beauty of architecture drawing will delight in thegorgeous illustrations included. Overview of the issues and practices of architecture in anall-in-one introductory text Includes new chapters and introductory essays by James Eckler,and features more than 1,000 drawings throughout Professor Ching is the bestselling author of numerous books onarchitecture and design, all published by Wiley; his works havebeen translated into 16 languages and are regarded as classics fortheir renowned graphical presentation For those pursuing a career in architecture or anyone who lovesarchitectural design and drawing, Introduction toArchitecture presents a beautifully illustrated andcomprehensive guide to the subject.

SYNOPSIS : This book provides an accessible introduction for architecture students to all aspects of architectural technology: structural physics, structural elements and forms, heating, lighting, environmental control, and computer modeling. It will also help students to integrate their design thinking with appropriate structural and environmental solutions. The book explains the relationships between physical phenomena, materials, building elements, and structural types using simple classification systems and real world examples. In addition, it explores current computer techniques for assisting students to predict the structural and environmental behavior of buildings. It also uses historical precedents to explain how the success of a technology is directly related to its cultural context. This second edition includes new sections on environmental design, Building Information Modeling (BIM), and two new case studies. Written by three experienced teachers, this book will be invaluable for those contemplating the study of architecture and for those already embarked on such a course.

SYNOPSIS : By introducing the basics of architectural science, this book is an ideal reference that provides an understanding of the physical basis of architectural design. The knowledge gained from this book equips the reader with the tools for realizing the full potential of the good intentions of sustainable, bioclimatic design. The text gives the reader the knowledge to design in order to control indoor environmental conditions: heat, light and sound. Into this discussion is introduced the problem that traditional energy resources are finite, and their use damaging, and governments and professional bodies demand increasing levels of sustainable design. An outline is provided for creating the required indoor conditions with little or no use of energy, other than from renewable sources. Each chapter presents a quick outline of the basic and relevant physics of heat, light, sound and energy, followed by an examination of human requirements. The reader is then introduced to ways in which these elements can be controlled by the building and by its design.
