Introduction Architecture Francis D Ching
This introductory text was compiled from eight previous books by the authors, seven of them by Mr. Ching and one of them by Mr. Eckler. In the preface the authors state that, "Architecture is an integral part of our lives. Good design, often unnoticed, quietly facilitates the activities of everyday life. It is the architect's challenge to create spaces that are perfectly attuned to the activities that take place within them."
And that is what this book seeks to do by giving the student the tools he or she needs to accomplish the above goal.
This book begins with an informative early history of architecture and it goes onto discussing design, form and space and everything else an introductory text on the subject should include, from Structural Elements to Building Systems. The book is very well written and very easy to understand. If you're planning on studying architecture, this is the book you hope your professor will be using in your introductory class.
