Description - Integrated Strategies in Architecture by Joan Zunde

This key text presents students with a holistic view of the building design process, bridging the gap between the theory and practice of constructing and assembling buildings. Integrated Strategies in Architecture encourages and enables students to gain a sound understanding of the purpose of buildings, the specialisms that contribute and the available technology. Zunde and Bougdah thoroughly introduce and expose the concepts and technologies that underlie the design process, setting current design in context as part of an evolutionary process, exemplified through historic and contemporary models, and emphasizing the importance of applying a broad variety of technologies in the creation of successful buildings. Topics covered include: space planning, colour theory, communication, management, aesthetics, structures and environmental control. This essential text will greatly assist students of architecture and its technology, construction management and building surveying as well as practitioners as they strive to build better buildings.
