  Architectural theory
Architectural theory encompasses all the principles and concepts underlying the practice of architecture, from the fundamental theories of classical proportions to theories about the social or cultural role of architecture.
Charles Holden (1875-1960) writes on the principles of architecture, the role of the architect and the architect's duty to the client; Denys Lasdun (1914-) writes on the need for something more than reason to underpin the actions of the architect.
There are, for example, lectures on art and architecture by H.S. Goodhart-Rendel (1887-1959), texts on accoustics in buildings by Hope Bagenal (1888-1979) and notes on colour theory by MGF Ventris (1922-1956).
