Second in the popular Basics Interior Architecture series * Perfect for intermediate interior design and architecture students * Elegantly explores more than 100 international case studies Students of interior architecture and design were dazzled by the first book in the Basics Interior Architecture series, "Form and Structure." Now authors Graeme Brooker and Sally Stone are back with "Context and Environment," examining how elements both inside and outside a building can affect interior space. Their method of interpretation, evaluation, and utilization of physical factors such as light, orientation, urban form, and sustainability is ideal for intermediate students of interior design, as well as anyone with an interest in architecture and urban planning. More than 100 international case studies are shown in glowing full-color photographs, with detailed discussions of the planning that went into each example.
