In Thinking Architecturally Paul Righini explores the essence of creative endeavour. He argues that it is the ability to distill ideas from many different sources that distinguishes successful design students from others who struggle with design ideas. In this accessible, highly illustrated book he gives students practical advice on how to engage with complex ideas, solve design problems and embark on a creative design adventure. Through an engaging critical study of issues such as order, form, space, style, place-making and aesthetics, as well as other fundamentals of architectural theory, he encourages students to begin to think about their own creative ideas. He emphasises that the use of analytical reasoning, lateral thinking, drawing and modelling, all contribute to the evolution of a personal critical discourse. Challenging design projects at the end of each chapter invite students to engage with and test many of the topics discussed in the chapter.
