Product Description


'There are many monographs published on individual architects' work but this book provides an alternative approach by investigating the main issues in the thought process behind a designers work. It amplifies the ideas in 'How Designers Think' in which the author applied his professional knowledge of process design. A number of key themes that arise out of the interviews are discussed by Bryan Lawson in a final chapter. The designers who appear in the book are all much admired. They have been chosen to represent a wide variety of backgrounds. They are at different stages in their lives and the development of their careers. They work in different countries and on different sorts of projects.'
Building Design

'At a time when architecture is struggling to redefine its position in relation to all the other professions in the built environment, this study of the particular power and mythology of drawing is apposite and timely.'
Planning, Practice and Research
