50 Strategies for Architecture is a collection of architectural essays and explorations that propose ways of finding, formulating, and developing strategies that will better our buildings, shape our spaces, and further the architect’s role within society. Inspired by the complexity and heterogeneity of the world around us, the book intends to stimulate architects and designers to think outside their habitual professional domain and allow our processes and creations to be influenced by everything around us. Through the connection between architecture and language, the book catalogues an approach to architecture that allows us as architects to observe the world around us, evaluate our role within the world and how we work within it, and create spaces, forms, and concepts based on these observations and evaluations. The central aim of 50 Strategies for Architecture is to allow architecture to be enriched by influences outside its habitual domain; allow architecture to be enriched by the complexity and richness of the world around it; allow everything around us to formulate our strategies for being better architects and creating better architecture. James Tait is an award-winning architect with a passion and commitment to a career in architecture. He is the winner of the internationally recognised RIBA Silver Medal in 2008.
