Product description

The subject of interior architecture currently lacks a detailed and educationally focussed text. The new "Basics Interior Architecture" series will fill this gap, and expand students knowledge of interior design/interior architecture and give an insight into some of the principles and methods of professional interior architects. The first book in the "Basics Interior Architecture" series, "Form & Structure" will propose a method of analysis, understanding and exploitation of the existing building that can be used to realise the design of a new insertion.
