Space on Earth – Architecture: People and Buildings (Thames Methuen, 1983) by Charles Knevitt is an illuminating analysis of the principles of architecture. The book was published in conjunction with the Channel Four programme of the same name.
Buildings provide spaces for human activity – ‘space on earth’. But how do they come about? What shapes them? Who’s involved in their design? And why do they often fail to give ‘firmness, commodity and delight’?
