Studio Craft & Technique is a one-stop handbook for undergraduate students of architecture. Based on the belief that technology and craft are at the heart of design studies, this book encourages students to think of them as aspects of an integrated whole. The book provides step-by-step techniques for skills that students use in their undergraduate studies, such as drawing, model making and surveying and explains the conventions of architectural representation. It also explains the primary elements of construction and structure from first principles, using clear diagrams and drawings. Students can use this handbook on a daily basis in their design and technology studios through their first years of study. Recommended to first year students at numerous architecture schools, this new edition has been extensively revised and updated.
