The Dissertation is one of the most demanding yet potentially most stimulating components of an architectural course. This classic text provides a complete guide to what to do, how to do it, when to do it, and what the major pitfalls are.

This is a comprehensive guide to all that an architecture student might need to know about undertaking the dissertation. The book provides a plain guide through the whole process of starting, writing, preparing and submitting a dissertation with minimum stress and frustration.

The third edition has been revised throughout to bring the text completely up-to-date for a new generation of students. Crucially, five new and complete dissertations demonstrate and exemplify all the advice and issues raised in the main text. These dissertations are on subjects from the UK, USA, Europe and Asia and offer remarkable insights into how to get it just right.

‘"Architecture made of words" is how the authors of The Dissertation describe their subject. Students are guided through the whole process, from choosing a subject right through to troubleshooting and trying to publish. Borden and Rüedi Ray are full of sage advice and helpful tips and, most usefully, their new edition provides five real dissertations demonstrating the variety of research and writing possible. Lucid and sensible, this is an essential guide for all architectural students.' - Professor Mark Crinson, University of Manchester'An invaluable reference guide packed with useful advice and supported with inspiring and informative examples. This book should be required reading for anyone about to navigate the challenges of writing a dissertation.' - C. Greig Crysler, Associate Professor of Architecture and Arcus Chair, College of Environmental Design, UC Berkeley
