Description - Architectural Composition by Rob Krier

Architectural Composition is both a theoretical and visual analysis which clearly illustrates the creative process which informs Krier's vision and praxis. The culmination of a lifetime's thought and experience by one of Europe's most important architectural theorists, it is without doubt a major achievement and is a standard work of reference for both students and practising architects. The book, published for the first time in 1988 by Academy Editions in London, has been supported by funds from the Fond zur Forderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung der Republik Osterreich, and it was carried out at Krier's former Institut fur Gestaltungslehre at the Technische Universitat in Vienna.
