    schema:reviewBody ""Finding the right visual solution for a particular architectural problem is one of the principal challenges faced by all architects and designers. This book offers architecture students over a hundred examples of visual problem solving in architectural design. Photographs of actual buildings, paired with digitally manipulated images in "before and after" comparisons, demonstrate the sorts of real-life situations that architectural design courses rarely teach students how to address. They detail how designers can manipulate form and material to achieve desired effects, such as emphasizing or diminishing building elements, imposing visual order on a facade, or adding grace notes. Clearly organized, each concept is graphically depicted, making this an ideal teaching tool as well as a resource for students at all levels."--Jacket." ;
