Looking Beyond the Structure: Critical Thinking for Designers & Architects (Paperback)
In Looking Beyond the Structure, architect Dan Bucsescu and philosopher Michael Eng record their conversations about the relationship of the built environment and other forms of design to the culture in which they are created. The authors exchange their interpretations of selected readings about design theory and invite the reader to join in the discussion. Questions following each chapter's reading stimulate critical thinking about the philosophies and theories of design, and additional assignments encourage students to express their critical thinking skills visually.
Dan Bucsescu and Michael Eng are both based at the Pratt Institute, John Carroll University.
