A theory of architecture by Nikos Angelos Salingaros( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than a decade in the making, this is a textbook of architecture rich with design techniques and useful for every architect whether a first-year students or experienced practicing architects. The book teaches the reader how to design by adapting to human needs and sensibilities, yet independently of any particular style. It explains much of what people instinctively know about architecture, and puts that knowledge for the first time in a concise, understandable form."--Amazon
Twelve lectures on architecture : algorithmic sustainable design : notes from a series of 12 lectures applying cutting-edge mathematical techniques to architecture and urban design by Nikos Angelos Salingaros( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twelve Lectures on Architecture is a profound philosophical work presented as a set of architectural lecture notes. It reads very easily, explaining why certain buildings and places speak to our hearts, thus illuminating many of our old assumptions about taste. Salingaros establishes, using biology, why traditional architecture is perceived intuitively by most people as more natural and life-affirming than modernist architecture."--Amazon
Unified architectural theory : form, language, complexity : a companion to Christopher Alexander's "The phenomenon of life: the nature of order, book 1" by Nikos Angelos Salingaros( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a synthesis that makes sense of buildings from all ages: historical, vernacular, to cutting-edge architectural creations. This book of lectures and essays cuts through the often-incomprehensible fog of contemporary architectural discourse to reveal theoretical foundations for design. Much of the material was developed as part of a course introducing scientific thinking into architecture, and actually estimating factors that contribute to the success of a building"--Author's webpage
Anti-architecture and deconstruction by Nikos A Salingaros( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questo libro è l'inizio di un contrattacco atteso e dovuto: l'autore, docente all'Università del Texas, espone la critica radicale di uno scienziato alla distruttività delle ultime tendenze architettoniche. Il decostruttivismo, ultima moda degli architetti, rivela la vera natura di tutto il modernismo, che è distruttiva della città, della società e della cultura umana. Infatti ha prodotto quel mondo di città invivibili, rumore incessante, distruzione di matrici naturali, con la relativa popolazione incivile, pericolosa, egoista e con tutti i conseguenti orrori, per cui la società avanzata sta diventando un incubo, nel quale anche gli edifici sono distorti, deformati e minacciosi. La lettura di questo libro, diretto a chiunque si interessi di architettura, dovrebbe essere obbligatoria nelle istituzioni dove si insegna progettazione, pianificazione e altri aspetti dell'ambiente costruito
