Architecture is one of many arts to which you are exposed every day. It doesn't exist in a vaccuum and neither do you. What tools, techniques, and concepts can you incorporate into your work from disciplines such as literature, film, drawing, and music? Author Aarati Kanekar shows you the work of architects, such as Peter Eisenman, Steven Holl, and Aldo Rossi, in which they drew inspiration from other disciplines to create their designs. Kanekar distills these explorations into seven types of space, from metaphorical space to digital space, to give you the framework to experiment with organizational structures. Looking outside of architecture for inspiration will strengthen your ideas and lead you to breakthroughs you never thought possible.

Concepts discussed include: algorithms, allegories, blobitecture, diagrams, drawing, form, material, montage, movement, musical ratios, narrative sequence, notational systems, program, proportioning systems, representation, sketches, and structure.
