Architecture: A Performing Art

£9.99

Product description

Andrews writes about the practice of architecture as it really is - from getting a job to the completion of the building. In his introduction, Andrews writes: 'I did not start originally to write a book, but to record experiences which could be useful to students. When teaching at the University of Toronto, I became quite concerned that there was no part of the course where I could get students to understand the immense variety of experiences that go into building a building.' The book that has emerged from Andrews' experiences is both an attempt to provide that understanding, revealing what a career as an architect truly involves, and at the same time a portrait of the artist as a young architect. Illustrated with over 200 photographs, plans and two-colour diagrams, this work will undoubtedly prove a revelation to many students of architecture.

Condition: Fine.
