Environmental Design.
Dober, Richard P.
An urban designer discusses environmental design as an interdisciplinary art. This volume serves as a general introduction to the subject, and is a casebook for encouraging an interprofessional view of environmental design. It is also a basic guide for the layman interested in knowing how the environment in which he lives can be improved. The major areas discussed are--(1) human habitation, analyzing the ways in which clients and the professionals who serve them can use everyday elements in the environment to find new solutions to old problems, (2) design structure, presenting information and insights that will stimulate fresh design approaches, and (3) 'a sense of place', which examines the appeal to the senses and suggests various ways in which effects are achieved by contrasts and by a heightened awareness of the relationship between natural conditions and artifacts.
