This is a GREAT resource for students in the design professions, even if their thesis is not a design thesis. It has great examples and explains how to utilize built works, not just written works in research.
It is very helpful for undergraduate students with little to no research experience. The text is relevent for those interested in “Evidence based architectural design”.
It is excellent for both a beginning researcher in acadamia or an experienced practitioner involved with architecture research.
It provides a broad research background as well as specific application to architecture. It researvh well organized and usable as an office reference or classroom text.
It is written with jargon and graphics familiar to architects. As a graduate student taking my first official course in research methods, I was disappointed. The language and structure of this book could have been made a lot easier to follow.
I would have appreciated, for example, more frequent subheadings and listing of points. Because of the lack of, the book is difficult to skim or pick and choose sections to read; expect to read thoroughly. Some of the examples in the book were questionable -especially the chapter on experimental and quasi-experimental research.
The frequent diagrams were also lacking in clarity. I think that the text could have been half as long and still conveyed the same amount of information. Redundancy aside, I did with much caffeinated effort gain a broad understanding of several research strategies and tactics.
The book is not a comprehensive guidebook for conducting research based on particular research methods; it is merely a broad introduction or clarification of various strategies. However, it frequently suggests comprehensive texts for further reading if you are so inclined.
I found this book to be excellent: It also adds to the body of knowledge by freshly demonstrating the application of the research methods of many other disciplines in the specific context of architecture including many cases and examplesall within a nice, logical, unifying philosophical framework.
This is a great book that fills a gap in architectural education. The effort is appreciated and to a great extend successful. One person found this helpful. Este libro es de mucha ayuda para entender los metodos de investigacion, especialmente en el campo de la arquitectura.
Ha sido de mucha ayuda para mi trabajo de investigacion. This is a good overall text for anyone working in or towards a graduate degree in architecture or landscape architecture.
