How do architects deal with the design process? What inspires them? Design Techniques looks at different approaches to the creative moment. The architects themselves reveal their modus operandi, explain how they tackle the project and discuss motivation, devices, influences, justifications, effects and the origins of their design techniques.
a+t magazine and Harvard GSD initiate the SOLID series, Harvard Symposia on Architecture. Design Techniques is the first volume in the series. Faculty, critics and theorists, and students discuss the different approaches contributing personal experiences, working practices, and opportunities encountered in the field of design.
The first volume in a series published in partnership with the Harvard GSD Department of Architecture, “Design Techniques” features a selection of shared knowledge from the academic year 2014–2015 on current techniques in architectural design. Faculty, critics and theorists, and students discuss different approaches, contributing not only working practices and opportunities encountered in the field of design, but also personal experiences and insight.
