From the Back Cover
THE CLASSIC ARCHITECTURAL REFERENCE, UPDATED WITH CONTEMPORARY EXAMPLES AND INTERACTIVE RESOURCES
For more than forty years, the beautifully illustrated Architecture: Form, Space, and Order has served as the classic introduction to the basic vocabulary of architectural design. The updated and revised Fourth Edition features the fundamental elements of space and form and is designed to encourage critical thought in order to promote a more evocative understanding of architecture.
Architecture: Form, Space, and Order distills complex concepts of design into a clear focus and brings difficult abstractions to life. The book explains form and space in relation to light, view, openings, and enclosures and explores the organization of space, and the elements and relationships of circulation, as well as proportion and scale. In addition, the text’s detailed illustrations demonstrate the concepts presented and reveal the relationships between fundamental elements of architecture through the ages and across cultures.
This edition includes an access card with a redemption code for the online Interactive Resource Center, which features thirty–five animations, flashcards of key architectural terms, and an image gallery showcasing hundreds of photos that enrich the book’s content.

Even if you are not into architecture and only into design or your an artist, this is a great book to have.
It's got some amazing illustrations that are so beautiful to look at.
I purchased not only the digital copy of this book but also the book copy of this.
In an aritst perspective this is great to look at to see the basic structures of a building.
The illustrations are in sketch form and often describe each structure as well as location this is an awesome book to have.
