The Human Setting
First edition. Card covers. 24.5 × 18.5cm, 93pp.
A series of articles on the subject of the human setting in relation to architecture. From the editor's introduction, "Architects and planners have always been concerned with the human setting. Traditionally, however, that setting was discussed as though it were the only element involved and then only from a pictorial point of view. Today, increasingly, man's part in relation to his setting is being seen as more important, and the impact of man's perceptions, values and use of the environment considered. At the same time these problems are being studied not only by designers but by people in other disciplines—psychologists, sociologists, geographers and others providing insights which help to understand the relation of man to his setting." Please see the images for a list of contents.
A fair copy. It is in perfectly good readable condition, but is stamped from the library of a government ministry to the front cover. The covers are also worn and creased, with two sets of stapled holes.
