Whether a working architect or a student embarking on the first steps towards creating your own design process, this book offers an insight and example into how engaging with the public, before painting into architecture, can offer the most stimulating and inspirational solutions. --Book Jacket

Archispeak : an illustrated guide to architectural design terms by Tom Porter( )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Widely used in architectural circles in the heat of discussion, the recurrent use of particular words and terms has evolved a language of design jargon. Commonly found in architectural literature and journalism, in critical design debate and especially in student project reviews, archispeak can seem insular and perplexing to others and - particularly to the new architectural student - often incomprehensible." "There is a need to translate architectural design concepts into spoken and written commentary - each word in use embodying a precise and universally accepted architectural meaning. If we explore the vocabulary of this language we gain insight to design good practice and to a collaborative understanding of what constitutes a refined architecture. This unique illustrated guide will help students understand the nuances of this specialized language and help them in communicating their own design ideas."--BOOK JACKET
