Very Good. ISBN: 0-486-20182-1, Very light shelf rubbing, little wear overall. Text is clean. 'What is good design? ...is it something that can emerge from the interrelations of a series of factors that can be understood by the student and practitioner? [The author] offers one of the finest modern analyses of this eternally recurrent problem, an analysis that is remarkable not only for its depth of comprehension, but for its empathetic freedom and its rich imagination. His provocative exposition works brilliantly through a series of variables, such as forms, materials, climatic purposes, orientations, proportions, various practical functions, human proportions, energy, mass, motion, and ideal factors. During his exposition [he] covers with great insight such perpetually fascinating topics as curves of life, logarithmic spirals, 'natural' curves in art, interrelation of texture and materials, integration with landscape, surface decoration, various classical geometric approaches, psychological aspects of structure, city planning and similar ideas. ' etc. Illustrated. 238 pages. 8.25 x 11 inches.
