Archi-Graphic: A Visual Operation places architecture on the operating table, using infographics to cut a visual cross-section that investigates the field. The intention behind Archi-Graphic is that knowledge of the richness and complexity inherent in the discipline and profession of architecture can become an accessible and even desirable pursuit for architects and non-architects alike. This book aims to be informative without being especially didactic, engaging both serious and humorous themes. Archi-Graphic peers into issues within architecture that are rarely tackled: personality, color, gender, ethnicity, construction expense, and life span are visually revealed through vibrant infographic diagrams. Ultimately, information is an abundant resource that lacks quality and this book challenges that condition, situating itself as a cross-disciplinary project between architecture, graphic design, art, information graphics--an exploration of the architecture of information.
