ARCHITECTURAL JUDGEMENT., Collins, Peter.
1 Collins, Peter. ARCHITECTURAL JUDGEMENT.
Montreal McGill - Queen's University Press 1971 0773501142 / 9780773501140 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
220 pp, 8 3/4" H. B&w illustrations. "The expansion of architectural theory into the realms of ecology, cybernetics and even pathology has inevitably led to renewed speculation about the nature of architectural decision-making. But whereas research has tended to place all the emphasis on the psychology of perception, Professor Peter Colllins here suggests that a more fruitful field of investigation is to be found in the intellectual techniques evolved by the legal profession. (The book) utilizes this analogy by surveying the topic consecutively from two separate viewpoints. Part I analyses the nature of judgements about architecture by comparing them with concepts evolved within the legal process. Part II attempts a synthesis in which, after suggesting some of the inadequacies of biological and aesthetic criteria, the author puts forth a case for fuller recognition of the jurist's contribution to the notion of professional criteria, as they affect, or should affect, architectural judgement." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light edge wear, faint erased pencil mark on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
