The basics of the profession and practice of architecture, presented in illustrated A-Z form.

The word "architect" is a noun, but Doug Patt uses it as a verb―coining a term and making a point about using parts of speech and parts of buildings in new ways. Changing the function of a word, or a room, can produce surprise and meaning. In How to Architect, Patt―an architect and the creator of a series of wildly popular online videos about architecture―presents the basics of architecture in A-Z form, starting with "A is for Asymmetry" (as seen in Chartres Cathedral and Frank Gehry), detouring through "N is for Narrative," and ending with "Z is for Zeal" (a quality that successful architects tend to have, even in fiction―see The Fountainhead's architect-hero Howard Roark.)

How to Architect is a book to guide you on the road to architecture. If you are just starting on that journey or thinking about becoming an architect, it is a place to begin. If you are already an architect and want to remind yourself of what drew you to the profession, it is a book of affirmation. And if you are just curious about what goes into the design and construction of buildings, this book tells you how architects think. Patt introduces each entry with a hand-drawn letter, and accompanies the text with illustrations that illuminate the concept discussed: a fallen Humpty Dumpty illustrates the perils of fragile egos; photographs of an X-Acto knife and other hand tools remind us of architecture's nondigital origins.

How to Architect offers encouragement to aspiring architects but also mounts a defense of architecture as a profession―by calling out a defiant verb: architect!

Comments:
Hellmaster
How To Architect is an enjoyable read for anyone interested in architecture, and also an uplifting and helpful read for anyone on the path to pursuing this field. This is a book all design students should read early-on. How To Architect provides a realistic account on both architecture schooling and architecture as a profession. I am going to graduate school next year and found this book to do a wonderful job of identifying the potentially disjointed journey of architecture, while simultaneously reaffirming the interests of those in this path... It would be impossible for those truly interested to not fly through this with pleasure.

Most of all, I found the book to be refreshingly relatable. Mr.Patt did a fantastic job of giving an overview of topics and figures- enough to provoke thought for those familiar with them, and to properly introduce them to those unfamiliar. Great book for all!

O.K.

Very much just "bla, bla, bla" as the author seemingly tries to write on every letter of the alphabet (one chapter per letter).

I love Patt's stuff on the Internet, though not so much this book.

Cezel
ok? not much new to me anyway.

An interesting quick read for the beach or pool.

I must say this book was well put together. Anyone can pick up this book and have a basic understanding of how architecture is and what are the different roles an architect has.

Great book ! I recommend it for all the professionals and the field and the ones that wish to approach this branch. It is very well explained and illustrated.
