Teaching a Contextual Architecture.
Gaines, Merrill C.
Journal of Architectural Education, v33 n3 p21-26 Spr 1980
An approach to teaching architecture that accommodates external environmental influences called architectural context is described. Contextual issues come under three headings: formal patterns (space, shape, scale, materials, etc.), activity patterns, and climatic patterns. The use of this approach in studio instruction is examined. (MSE)
