The 10 best architecture books of 2010
The architecture is the source of identity since it defines the structure of a state. Britain is rich in architectural heritage, dating back over 5,000 years. After the Great Recession era, the construction and infrastructure sector in the UK flourished and consequently the number of architectural institutes and training centers grew. Today, professional architects protect your interests by providing you with the comfort, utility, size, appearance, style, and location that suits you best. As the Roman architect Palladio Vitruvius once said, architecture must provide firmness, comfort, and pleasure.
Architecture is the art and science of defining space. Designers pay attention to local practices regarding materials and colors, roof pitches, eave lengths, window-to-wall proportions, and the buildings’ socially significant relationship to their site and the street. With the advent of technology and new innovations, the emphasis of modern commercial architects has shifted towards energy efficiency and green building through green research and the development of healthier environments for the benefit of future generations.
Books play a vital role in learning and acquiring knowledge about various skills used in construction procedures. It is the basic foundation upon which an individual’s academic abilities are built. An architecture book usually starts with the basics of architecture, such as design, drawing, the creative process, and presentation. Reading an architectural planning book starts from the basics of building design, such as how to draw a line. Several project architect administrative books contain chapters covering areas such as the project delivery system, resident inspection office responsibilities, documentation, building law and labor relations, materials, claims and disputes over properties, project closure and others.
