Using short case studies that relate to the RIBA Plan of Work, it bridges the gap between the needs of the student and the overly technical information sources used by practicing professionals.

The debate over architecture has been raging for years & shows no signs of abatement. In these entertaining yet serious essays, Clarke traces the origin of the malaise of modern architecture to schools of architecture themselves, both in the United States & France. He is also critical of contemporary artists, & laments the fact that modern art has now lost its connection to architecture. Clarke believes that contemporary architects have alienated the public with hideous buildings & this disaffection will eventually result in the destruction of their profession. He urges renewed recognition of the interdependence of architecture & society, & of the humanities & architecture. This engagingly written work is an important cross-cultural commentary on the state of Western architecture, art & education today. Clarke is professor of Advanced Technical Studies at Southern Illinois University & author of a number of books on architecture & environmental design. Includes an introduction by David Watkin, Head of the Department of History of Art at the University of Cambridge.

During the last three decades or so there has been a substantial shift in architectural design education. These changes have manifested in an increased criticism of the traditional design education; attempts to reconsider/rethink the basic assumptions, theories and practices of traditional design education; and calls for major changes in studio culture. The drivers of this change include epistemological, social, and economical forces among which are new knowledge and technological developments; increased use of computers and information technology in design education and practice; pressure on institutions of higher education to reduce space use; and changing student demographics. Forty five authors from all over the world come together to address new discourse in architectural design education. The 45 articles of the book are organized under nine themes: virtual and distributed design education, digital design education, digital visualization and design teaching, reflections on architectural design education, integration of studio with other teaching, theoretical issues in learning and teaching design, creativity & critical thinking, alternative studio/design built studio, and teaching studio.

Wilma Fairbank documents, from both a historical and a uniquely personal perspective, the professional and personal achievements of Lin Whei-yin and Liang Sicheng. Liang and Lin were born in early twentieth-century China, a time when the influences of modernism were slowly bearing down on the traditional culture. In the 1920s, they traveled together to the Beaux Arts universe of Philadelphia, where they both graduated with honors from the architecture department of the University of Pennsylvania. Married in 1928, they returned to their native land and became the first two professors at the newly founded school of architecture in Shenyang's Tung Pei University. Wilma Fairbank and her husband, John King Fairbank, Harvard University's eminent historian of modern China, were lifelong friends of Liang and Lin. This relationship allows the author, herself a noted researcher of art and architecture, to paint a vivid picture of the couple within the context of China's turbulent past. Fairbank recounts how Liang and Lin used their Western training to initiate the study of China's architectural evolution. She also documents—as seen through the eyes of Liang and Lin—the tragic events that ravaged the Chinese homeland and its people: the 1937 invasion and bombings by the Japanese military and the ensuing illness and poverty; World War II and the civil war; the rise to power of the Communist government in 1949; and the victimization of the scholar class during the Cultural Revolution of 1966-76. Fairbank provides a highly readable, emotionally charged personal account of the couple's lives, and the numerous and sometimes horrific torments and humiliations they suffered. And, finally, when it was all too late, the posthumous praise and recognition.
