Form is the horizon of any human activity. Architecture is a discipline aiming at defining the form of buildings. Economy of Means : How Architecture Works aims at defining the good architectural form. Economy of means is its D.N.A. Beyond this, by questioning the economy of means both as an aesthetic category and as a conceptual tool, the book proposes to renew architecture to face global warming and scarcity of resources from within the architecture discipline.
