Description: In A Natural System of House Design, award-winning architect and author Charles G. Woods, AIA, sets forth a simple-to-use module "system" of design he developed over a period of 25 years. This system uses the same 4'0" square module used in the design of some of the great gothic cathedrals and in the work of architect Frank Lloyd Wright and others, but developed into a simpler, detailed, and adaptable (rectangles, angles, and curves) design system, helpful in both design and construction drawings, and in the construction process itself. Woods explains his system both "philosophically" as well as practically. The illustrations are by Malcolm Wells, with many cartoon-like drawings, as well as preliminary and final design-stage drawings in beautiful color. The book is unique both in its mixture of architectural design with philosophy and religion, and in its humor. Sample construction drawings and photos of woods' designs both in progress and upon completion are included. Woods' book also includes tips on energy efficiency and low-cost design. A Natural System of House Design should be of great interest to both professionals and laymen, as it is one of the few "systematic" approaches to house design in print.
