Featuring numerous computer models, this text provides an explanation of architectural design. It presents three-dimensional computer models of many famous architectural works with the aim of enabling the reader to achieve a greater understanding of the design process than that perceived through photographs, plans or elevations. Among the many buildings included are those by historical figures such as Andrea Palladio, Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto, as well as designs by present-day figures such as Daniel Libeskind, Zaha Hadid, Coop Himmelb(l)au and Bernard Tschumi. An explanation is given for each of the well-designed buildings so that the reader appreciates the necessary tools needed to design well. The author discusses sections or parts of the building and the design process.
