Kurzbeschreibung

6. Mai 1999
Originally published in 1947, this has emerged as a classic work on the relationships among buildings, their inhabitants, and the environment. This major revision brings it up to date for a new, more environmentally aware generation of architects and designers. James Marston Fitch provides a fundamental theory of buildings. "The ultimate task of architecture," he writes, "is to act in favour of human beings: to interpose itself between people and the natural environment in which they find themselves, in such a way as to remove the gross environmental load from their shoulders". Fitch systematically examines the various aspects of the environment which buildings control for human habitation, air, temperature, light, and sound, even space, time, and gravity. He draws on scientific research to probe deeply into these problems and he sets out the most practical solutions to these and other issues.
