According to Cees Dam, architecture is first and foremost a trade, one that has to be learned. It has a tradition from which it cannot break away, despite the fact that some architects really want to. Architecture is also an art form, a restrained and polluted art. The architect is meant to develop ideas alone and intuitively and adapt them to functional and economic laws later. Cees Dam (b. 1932), an architect as well as professor and dean at the architecture faculty of Delft University of Technology, published numerous lectures, articles and other texts about architecture. This book offers his most fundamental texts about the trade of the architectural designer, design thinking, the sociocultural role of architecture and the position of the architect.
