Product Description

Review

"The winner of a host of prizes, this delicately laid-out book advises students how to approach a number of design principles. Including advice on everything from 'how to draw a line' to 'how to sketch a one-point perspective of a rectangular interior space' this is a must-have for anyone starting out in the field." -- Will Coldwell, The Independent



"How to draw a line, the meaning of figure-ground theory, hand-lettering and the fact that windows look dark in the daytimeeach item has resonance beyond architecture. Books like this are brief tutorials in the art of seeing, a skill useful in every aspect of life on the planet." -- Susan Salter Reynolds latimes.com



" 101 Things de-mythologizes the jargon that obscures the real meanings of what is taught in design schools. Designers too often write in obtuse terms that make relatively simple concepts difficult to comprehend. But understanding how we perceive, experience, and interpret the spaces we inhabit should not make us feel dumb, or left out. This readable and graphically clear book is a great introduction to design terms, principles, and concepts. Anyone interested in design will learn much from this terrific book." -- Theodore C. Landsmark , President, Boston Architectural College, President 2006-07, the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture



"Matthew Frederick offers a wide-ranging assortment of architectural pearls of wisdom that every architecture student should understand, consider and embraceor perhaps rejectwhen first learning the daunting process of design. Encompassing both theory and practice, and illustrated with often witty drawings, 101 Things is an eclectic itemization of architectural philosophies, compositional strategies and tactics, design conventions, drawing and presentation techniques, and even tips about how to behave as an architect." -- Roger K. Lewis , Professor Emeritus of Architecture, University of Maryland, author of Architect? A Candid Guide to the Profession

Format: Hardcover
I used the book for a tick list when I was in Arch. studies. It helped to point out what the teacher taught us and questions I needed to ask. Not very intense. Was very light read and not many details.

It's like a pocket book, it's so small. It has quotes and tidbits that don't have any structure to them.

If you have a presentation and not sure what to say, this is a great book to follow! it is very short but so useful! very easy to follow and I am surprised how the Author could summarize the most important aspect of Architecture in such a short format book! A must in your library!!
