Architecture and Landscape

  • Brian Carter
Part of the Macmillan Building and Surveying Series book series


Architecture establishes strategic decisions regarding the design of buildings and their relationship with and impact on the environment. Architects are responsible for preparing designs to satisfy the requirements of a client whether a home owner, an industrialist or a city father. However, the architect is also concerned with the relationships which a new building establishes with its surroundings, its detailed design, its construction and how it will perform in use.
