Forming and Centering

Foundational Aspects of Architectural Design

by ED: Kenneth M. Moffett

Nearly every work of architecture can be characterized by specific approaches to forming and centering. An awareness of these "underpinnings" would facilitate a more informed approach to architectural design problems, as well as a deeper understanding of the central issues (and flaws) embodied by completed works of architecture. But the addressing of such topics has generally remained multifarious and diverse: more in the nature of a collection of independent issues than an overarching analytical argument. In this book, fresh looks at such issues are assembled and recast into a fully integrated narrative, based on two foundational and complementary aspects of architectural design: those that give shape and those that give focus-forming and centering.
