This new title in Vivays Publishing's 10 Principles series provides clear explanations of each tenet along with useful illustrations to help the reader visualise what is being discussed. The author assumes no background on the subject, but an interest in learning more about what goes into making a building work. An experienced writer on this subject, Ruth Slavid provides a useful and illuminating primer to the field that is accessible to stents of architecture, architects or architectural historians or anyone interested in the principles behind the buildings that surround them.
The rules of architecture have been discussed since the Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius coined the trilogy firmitas, utilitas and venustas, most commonly translated as being solid, useful and beautiful. Put simply, this means that a building should stand up and endure, that it should serve its function, and that it should give pleasure to its users and the wider community.
Contents: Principle 1: Place; Principle 2: Structure; Principle 3: Function and Flexibility; Principle 4: Comfort; Principle 5: Sustainability; Principle 6: Legibility; Principle 7: Light; Principle 8: Sound; Principle 9: Surface; Principle 10: Details.
Ruth Slavid is an author and freelance journalist specialising in architecture and construction. For many years, she worked at The Architect's Journal. She is the author of Wood Architecture, Extreme Architecture and Micro: Very Small Buildings.
