One of a series of ten mini-monographs about the reasons to conduct and methods to accomplish effective predesign planning in architecture, this monograph discusses the importance of discovering strongly held values as a beginning point for predesign planning. It shows how the three enduring values of architecture first expressed by the Roman architect Vitruvius are relevant for today’s architecture. It also shows how many other values impact contemporary architecture and discusses in detail eight value areas under the acronym HECTTEAS (TEST EACH). The monograph demonstrates at length how these values become issues that architects must address in design. Three case studies show how values uncovered in three very different predesign plans influenced the resulting architecture. Exercises and references allow the reader to develop knowledge about value-based predesign planning. Each mini-monograph of this ten-part series can be taken as an individual course
