Basics Architecture 03: Architectural Design explains the process of designing architectural projects. It describes the design studio and the activities that take place there.

The architectural design process is as diverse as the people who practise it; all architects follows their own individual design process. In this dynamic new text the realities of the design process and the relationship between education and practice are explored in detail.

The book introduces a variety of processes through examples and case studies. This allows readers to identify with certain methods with which they could respond to in their own work, and enables them to develop their own unique approach.
