Design in Mind
Design in Mind is based upon interviews with eleven well-known but quite different architects. The resulting case studies illustrate their works and their design processes, which are interpreted, compared and commented upon by Bryan Lawson using the models in How Designers Think, his earlier successful text. A particular feature of the book is the inclusion of original design drawings by the eleven architects. There are many monographs published on individual architects but this book provides an alternative approach in investigating the main issues in the thought process behind a designer's work. A number of key themes that arise out of the interviews are discussed by Bryan Lawson in the final chapter.
