Item description for Basics Design Methods (Basics) by Kari Jormakka, Oliver Schurer, Dorte Kuhlmann, Christine Stamm-Griffin, James Curnow, Honey Naylor, Becky Freeman & B. Teissier...

Architects often employ design methods to help them find more creative forms. These methods make it possible to break free of the traditional canon of forms and established paradigms. At the same time, there must be enough leeway for a functional, systematic design conception to take shape. This volume focuses in depth on the design methods that have decisively shaped current architectural practice.

Themes are - Diagrammatic methods (using drawings and schematic representations), -Mimetic methods (imitative), - Parametric methods (using a characteristic quantity), - Automated and digital design methods of the contemporary avant-garde, e.g. scaling, datascapes, folding, and morphing.

one of the many outstanding books in the series  Apr 16, 2008
I've just received this book and would highly recommend this along with Basics design ideas. For very lttle money these two little books will serve you well through your career, because they are rooted in architectural thinking, not fashion ridden trends, they will always be a resource for making your current project into a genuine place.
