It ranges from the simple assembly of components to the fully integrated design of novel construction systems. Within the holistic philosophy introduced in Volume 1 of this series, this book is intended to develop students' understanding of the various layers of knowledge, skills and mechanisms that make up the many approaches to technical design." "Rather than offer a particular methodology, the writers draw on their experience in architectural education to provide a detailed description of the development process and to acknowledge traditional solutions while challenging designers to consider innovative alternatives. Attention is paid to materials choices, detail design and specification writing. The text is illustrated with the use of case studies. It aims to encourage students, as tomorrow's professionals, to take an enthusiastic approach to the development of the language of technical design and, above all, to fully embrace their environmental responsibilities as designers."--Jacket."@en ;
