The Architecture Concept Book : An inspirational guide to creative ideas, strategies and practices
Inspired by the complexity and heterogeneity of the world around us, by the rise of new technologies and their associated behaviours, The Architecture Concept Book seeks to stimulate young architects and students to think outside of what is often a rather conservative and self-perpetuating professional domain, and to be influenced by everything around them.
Organized into four central themes, the book explores 32 architectural concepts, or strategies, which cover wide-ranging and not always architecturally centred subjects. These progress from such notions as disorder, function and memory, to basic architectural components such as the wall, roof, stair and services, to social phenomena such as influence and respect, before concluding with texts on reviewing, optimising and economising. The aim is to create more thoughtful architects for the Digital Age.
