Now in its fourth edition, Analysing Architecture has become internationally established as the best introduction to architecture. Aimed primarily at those wishing to become professional architects, it also offers those in disciplines related to architecture (from archaeology to stage design, garden design to installation art), a clear and accessible insight into the workings of this rich and fascinating subject. With copious illustrations from his own notebooks, the author dissects examples from around the world and all periods of history to explain underlying strategies in architectural design and show how drawing may be used as a medium for analysis. This new edition of Analysing Architecture is revised and expanded. Notably, the chapter on `Basic Elements of Architecture` has been enlarged to discuss the `powers` various architectural elements offer the architect. Three new chapters have been added to the section on `Themes in Spatial Organisation`, covering `Occupying the In-between`, `Inhabited Wall` and `Refuge and Prospect`. Two new examples - a Mud House from Kerala, India and the Mongyo-tei (a tea house) from Kyoto, Japan - have been added to the `Case Studies` at the end of the book. The `Select Bibliography` has been expanded and the `Index` revised.
