Maki Kuwayama
The Process of Making
The design processes in architecture, urban planning, and related fields are explained and demystified, starting with five parameters: grid, function, detail, material, and cost. The art of design is the integration of these parameters into a balanced whole. How they work in tandem is explained in nine case studies stemming from different periods, scales, and typologies – that is, from furniture to private and public buildings through to urban design. This is an indispensable book for nonprofessionals and novices who wish to participate in the public debate on our built environment.
