Analyzing Architecture by Simon Unwin pdf free download. For some years I have used a notebook to analyze architecture through drawing. I find this exercise useful as an architect, and it helps to focus my teaching. My simple premise is that one’s capacity for ‘doing’ architecture can be developed by studying the work of others. In this way one can discover some of the powers of architecture, and, by looking at how other architects have used them, see how they might be managed in one’s own design.

For teaching, I have organized my notebook findings into the beginnings of a thematic framework, which can be used in analyzing examples. The following chapters illustrate some of the themes that have emerged so far. They make observations on architecture as a creative discipline, its elements, the conditions that affect it, and attitudes that may be adopted in doing it.

The first chapter offers a working definition of architecture, as an identification of place. This is put forward as the primary concern of architecture, and as a theme underpins everything that follows. Realization that the primitive motivation of architecture is to identify (to recognize, amplify, create the identity of) places has been the key that has allowed access into the related areas explored in this book. A large part of the book deals with conceptual strategies used in design. There are chapters that look at different ways of organizing space, and at the various roles of geometry in architecture.
