Architecture: Design Notebook is a handbook which focuses on the process of design as pragmatic and non-theoretical, where the skills required for designing at undergraduate level are clearly demonstrated. This vital design companion will be the cornerstone of an architectural undergraduate's studies - studio design projects. This book supports the Theory of Architecture in that it provides fundamental maxims that can point the inexperienced designer in the right direction towards providing an acceptable architectural solution. The book provides students engaged in building design with a framework of accepted ways of looking at things which will support their exploration during the design process. A Peter Fawcett is an architect and critic who combines teaching with sporadic practice; he is currently Professor of Architecture at the University of Nottingham. In recent years his work has been placed in architectural competitions and has been hung at the Royal Academy and Royal Ulster Academy. Comprehensive treatment of core design curriculum Designed for student-centred learning Text is supported by author's sketches
