Dissertation: an Architecture Student's Handbook is a comprehensive guide to all that an architecture student might need to know about writing a dissertation. It clearly navigates the student through the whole process of starting, writing, preparing and submitting a dissertation, as well as suggesting what to do after the dissertation has been completed.


Subjects covered include how to write a proposal, which research methodologies and techniques to adopt, which libraries and archives to utilise (including special architectural resources on the internet), as well as how to structure, reference and illustrate it.
