Studio Craft & Technique is a one-stop handbook for undergraduate students of architecture. Based on the belief that technology and craft are at the heart of design studies, this book encourages students to think of them as aspects of an integrated whole. The book provides step-by-step techniques for skills that students use in their undergraduate studies, such as drawing, model making and surveying and explains the conventions of architectural representation. It also explains the primary elements of construction and structure from first principles, using clear diagrams and drawings. Students can use this handbook on a daily basis in their design and technology studios through their first years of study. Recommended to first year students at numerous architecture schools, this new edition has been extensively revised and updated.

Toronto - the largest and one of the most multicultural cities in Canada - boasts an equally interesting and diverse architectural heritage. Architecture, Design and Craft in Toronto 1900-1940 tells a story of the significant changes in domestic life in the first 40 years of the twentieth century. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach to studies of residential spaces, the author examines how questions of modernity and modern living influenced not only architectural designs but also interior furnishings, modes of transportation and ways to spend leisure time. The book discusses several case studies, some of which are known both locally and internationally (for example Casa Loma), while others such as Guild of All Arts or Sherwood have been virtually unstudied by historians of visual culture. The overall goal of the book is to put Toronto on the map of scholars of urban design and architecture and to uncover previously unknown histories of design, craft and domesticity in Toronto. This study will be of interest not only to the academic community (namely architects, designers, craftspeople and scholars of these disciplines, along with social historians), but also the general public interested in local history and/or visual culture.
