TAIPEI, Taiwan (PRWEB) July 29, 2012
Informative, relevant and useful, “Architectural Jet Lag” features the in-depth analysis of significant architectural concepts, definitions and frameworks. Written by Angie S.H., this riveting book shares a concrete idea of what architecture is and what it is not. A boon to every student, professional, and even to the academic world, this compilation can be a useful source material for everyone who has the immense interest in the industry.
In this book, the author perspicaciously outlines the correlation between the human body and the theological framework of architecture. This read signifies that, just like jet lag which is the circadian clock’s out of synchronization with the destination time, as it experiences daylight and darkness contrary to the rhythms to which it has grown accustomed, the same can go for the field of architecture, hence the term “Architectural Jet Lag”. Angie S.H. suggests that one cannot categorize architecture as a free-flowing concept such as art – interior design, creative writing or music. Architecture follows a certain pattern that is tailor-fit to the spatial needs of individuals. Architecture as a built environment for one’s daily life requires linear and concrete alignment with his paradigm.
Based on the author’s thesis, this study illustrates how architecture, as build environment, interacts with peoples’ ways of living by analyzing some case studies with their respective scientific methodology. Easing “Architectural Jet Lag”, this book introduces the G-ARCH solution when applying the Western advanced architecture to the Eastern culture and social logic of space.
Groundbreaking and compelling, the authentic ideas in this exceptional read will transform readers’ perception and educate them about the various considerations in the intricate world of architecture.
This book will be featured at the 2012 National Education Association Book Exhibit in Washington, D.C. on June 30 to July 2, 2012.
