The Study of Architectural Design by John F. Harbeson is the only text in English that describes, step by step, the system of architectural education developed in France and commonly known as the Beaux-Arts method as it was adapted and refined to suit the structure and demands of American schools of architecture.

Used to train every architect in America until the late 1940s, it was supplanted by the advent of modernism. With Harbeson's clear approach to teaching the system, students and practitioners can recover the classic course of study for use today, from the making of the initial sketch, through development, to the rendering of the project for presentation to clients. 320 b/w, 35 color illustrations

About the Author:

A native of Philadelphia, John F. Harbeson (1888–1986) attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied in the Department of Architecture under Paul-Philippe Cret, the great exponent of the Beaux-Arts method. Harbeson passed from gifted pupil to master of design and partner in the Cret firm. As professor of design and, eventually, chair at the University of Pennsylvania, he taught by the Beaux-Arts method and, with the publication of The Study of Architectural Design, became its principal historian.

Review:

“Harbeson’s lost masterpiece is back in print―and provides an invaluable insight into architectural training methods from an age that produced giants....Of particular value to this reprinted edition is the new introduction...a great addition to the architectural literature.”
- Traditional Building
