Changing Shape of Architecture : Further Cases of Integrating Research and Design in Practice
About this item
Following on from The Changing Shape of Practice, this new book expands upon the author’s exploration into how architectural practices worldwide are dealing with increasingly complex design requirements.
This new volume provides a handbook of examples for practices that wish to integrate more research into their work and a reference book for students that seek to prepare themselves for the changing shape of practice in architecture. As well as addressing the increasing integration of research undertaken in architectural practices of different sizes ranging from small to very large practices from the UK, USA, Europe and Asia, the book also focuses on two new elements: the comparative analysis of modes and modalities of conducting research in practice, and cross-practice discussions of specific aspects and themes that impact upon, shape and co-evolve research and practice.
