  • And writing for publication in print and electronic formats as well as oral presentations

He presents the principles of clear writing, illustrated by realistic examples and exercises drawn from the world of design practice.

This book should be next to the computer of every architect, planner, interior designer, engineer, and student who wishes to present a polished professional image through effective communication!
