1 Review
This unique book discusses programming, design and building evaluation providing a 'joined up' approach to building design. By linking the functional and architectonic qualities of a building, the authors show the practical implications of the utility value of buildings.
Starting by looking at how the relationship between form and function has been dealt with by different approaches to architecture from a historical perspective, it goes on to discuss how the desired functional quality and utility value of a building can be expressed in a brief and given a physical form by the architect. Finally, it advises on how to carry out post-occupancy evaluation and provides the architect with methods and techniques for testing whether the intended utility value of a building has been achieved.

* Learn to fully understand the relationship between function and form.
* Discover the link between design methodology and research and their impact on the design brief.
* Discover how to evaluate buildings and apply the findings to future designs.
