AVA Academia’s Basics
Architecture titles are designed to
provide visual arts students with a
theoretical and practical exploration
of each of the fundamental topics
within the discipline of architecture.
Packed with examples from students
and professionals and fully illustrated
with clear diagrams and inspiring
imagery, they offer an essential
exploration of the subject.

Architectural Design explains
the mysterious and little-discussed
process of designing architectural
projects. It sets architectural
design education within its context
by describing the design studio
and explaining the activities that
take place there. The realities
of the design process and the
relationship between education
and practice are explored in detail.
The book describes each stage
of development, from concept
through to completion, and
includes interviews with leading
architectural practices. Through
discussion and case studies,
Basics Architecture: Architectural
Design allows you to develop a
personal approach to architectural
design, based on your own values,
skills and preoccupations.

Ethical practice is well known, taught
and discussed in the domains of
medicine, law, science and sociology
but was, until recently, rarely
discussed in terms of the Applied
Visual Arts. Yet design is becoming
an increasingly integral part of
our everyday lives and its influence
on our society ever-more prevalent.

AVA Publishing believes that our
world needs integrity; that the
ramifications of our actions upon
others should be for the greatest
happiness and benefit of the greatest
number. We do not set ourselves
out as arbiters of what is ‘good’ or
‘bad’, but aim to promote discussion
in an organised fashion for an
individual’s understanding of their
own ethical inclination.

By incorporating a ‘working with
ethics’ section and cover stamp
on all our titles, AVA Publishing aims
to help a new generation of students,
educators and practitioners find
a methodology for structuring their
thoughts and reflections in this
vital area.

Project: Taiwan Strait Atlas
Location: Taiwan
Architect: Raoul Bunschoten,
Joost Grootens, Yuyang Liu,
Shuenn Ren Liou and Shao Sen
Wang with TungHai University
and Xiamen University
Date: Work in progress

Xiamen and Taiwan flights; typhoons
and earthquakes. Mapping involves
the use of graphical means to
demonstrate connections between
different types of data and
phenomena. The Taiwan Strait
project requires the analysis and
understanding of complex issues
such as political and climatic
complexity, as well as high urban
density design. CHORA’s analysis
put these issues together in context
and proposed solutions to tackle the
problems that they defined.
