Buildings that feel good

£24.99

Product description

Hardback book with decorated boards in a very good condition. With minor shelf marking only. Pages in a very good condition. Illustrated with colour photographs.

What makes a building good? The question is the central challenge facing architects and ultimately can only be answered by looking at what has worked well in the past. Written by a highly respected briefing and design evaluation consultant who states that a powerful key to designing good buildings is to decipher consistent truths from other good buildings. The case studies include a wide range of recent highly-rated buildings assessed in terms of user experience. The lessons extracted are universal and intended to form the basis of any new briefing process. Eclectic, thought-provoking and bound to generate debate, "Buildings That Feel Good" is aimed at architects, interior designers and anyone interested in the nature of beautiful spaces.
