Analysing Architecture offers a unique 'notebook' of architectural strategies to present an engaging introduction to elements and concepts in architectural design. Beautifully illustrated throughout with the author's original drawings, examples are drawn from across architectural history (from primitive places to late 20th century structures) to illustrate analytical themes and to show how drawing can be used to study architecture.

Simon Unwin clearly identifies the key elements of architecture and conceptual themes apparent in buildings. He describes ideas for use in the active process of design. Breaking down the grammar of architecture into themes and 'moves', Unwin exposes its underlying patterns to reveal the organisational strategies that lie beneath the superficial appearances of buildings.

Review:

‘Excellent in every way - a core book along with An Architectural Notebook by him’ - Terry Robson, Teaching Fellow in Architecture at the University of Bath, UK

‘Probably the best introductory book on architecture’ - Andrew Higgott, Lecturer in Architecture at the University of East London, UK

I think this is an excellent book and I will continue to recommend it to my students.’ - Donald Hanlon, Professor at the Department of Architecture, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, US.

'I have not recommended any other books on this topic to my students, because it is currently the classic in the field of architectural design studies.' – Professor Howard Ray Lawrence, Penn State

The most lucid and readable introduction to architecture that I have read.’ – Professor Roger Stonehouse, Manchester School of Architecture, UK

'One would have no hesitation in recommending this book to new students – it introduces many ideas and references central to the study of architecture. The case studies are particularly informative.’ – Lorraine Farrelly, Architectural Design
