Mechanics and Meaning in Architecture
Book Description:

In Mechanics and Meaning in Architecture, Lance LaVine shows that in architecture, as practiced and taught today, the technological aspect of the profession-how weight is distributed, how heat flow is regulated, and how light is permitted to enter-has been ceded to engineers and other technical specialists. With this book, Lance LaVine encourages architects to understand what makes their use of technology unique and essential, and to reclaim the natural world for meaningful interpretation in their design of buildings.
