"His classic introduction to the basic elements of architecture has served as a reference for both students and practicing architects for 30-plus years. Illustrated throughout with b&w diagrams and renderings, the third edition includes expanded sections on circulation, light, views, and site context; new material on environmental factors and building codes; and contemporary examples of form, space, and order."
