    Design Process in Architecture From Concept to Completion
    Every building starts with an idea. But how do you get from a concept to a piece of architecture? Why do some ideas work better than others? What is a "good" design?

    Questions like these can make design seem mystifying, especially because the answer is that there is no one right way to design. But understanding how the design process works is an essential part of an architecture student's development - and one of the most powerful tools a designer can wield.

    This friendly guidebook will help students with all aspects of the design process, with examples drawn from all types of architecture. It also gives students the tools to develop their own unique ways of working. With accessible text and hundreds of images, this is an indispensable and illuminating guide for beginning architecture students as well as anyone who is curious about how design works.
