Architecture is Elementary by Nathan Winter
Book DescriptionAwarded for its unique ink illustrations, this newly revised edition of Architecture is Elementary is a self-instruction book that concisely and coherently discusses the principles of architectural design. Stimulating lessons challenge the lay person and trigger creative responses. New features include a fresh design and layout, 50 new illustrations of recent and planned buildings, and new lessons that update the book for the world of twenty-first-century architecture. Author Nathan Winters explains the rationale for developers choosing to build higher and taller with modern high-rises, and explores the engineering challenges for such giant structures. He also addresses the dangers of such adventurous design in this century, including becoming tempting targets for terrorists. Architecture is Elementary also explores issues surrounding modern landscape architecture, as Winters looks at the impact of green design and cities that seek to reclaim useless spaces (such as inactive railroad lines), converting them into parks for urban use. He also explores the financial and economic benefits of beautified landscape. The new layout, new lesson materials, and current examples of future thinking in the world of architecture make this a must-have for every serious teacher, student, and practitioner of architecture. Dr. Nathan B. Winters earned a Ph.D., specializing in art and creativity. He served as chair of the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Utah, where he was a professor for 29 years. He is currently Professor Emeritus from the College of Fine Arts. His artwork is found in many private collections around the country. He has served as educational consultant to the states of Florida, Utah, Hawaii, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona, as well as the Alberta Province of Canada. He is the coauthor of Art Is Elementary. He lives in Midway, Utah.
