Processes of Creating Space : An Architectural Design Workbook Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Processes of Creating Space is a workbook for beginning designers that shows how to generate space with user experiences in mind.

It explains how to keenly perceive your world and seamlessly integrate architectural representation into your design process.

The book uses two main strategies, blending the design process with material processes and media techniques and 'experiential typologies' - emphasising first-hand experience of space.

Five highly experimental assignments explore the interwoven relationship between design process and design tools, to help you learn when to incorporate writing, architectural photography, macro photography, orthographic projection, perspective projection, hand-drawing, CAD, mass modelling, hot wire foam cutting, 3D modelling, multi-part plaster mold making, slip casting, plaster casting, paper casting, monocoque shell structures, working with latex, concrete, twine pulp, full-scale prototyping and more.

Illustrated with more than 350 color images, the book also includes a section on material fabrication techniques and a glossary of technical terms. An eResource containing downloadable essays, stop-motion videos, sample schedules, and supplementary information can be found here:
