As the number and distinctiveness of design directions in contemporary architecture expands, an outcome has emerged of a contradictory nature. While many of these directions hold great intrigue, a troubling aspect arises in that in their realisation an 'incompleteness' is often exhibited, one expressing a less developed architectural richness expressed an under utilised nature of the architectural language itself.

Internal addresses this issue with a focus on topics underlying the creation of architectural languages. Concentrating on strategies and concepts that inform the creation of cohering architectural languages versus 'external' issues affecting design, such as those necessary to accommodate site or program, Internal focuses on design considerations with the authority grounded in 'internal' language-based architectural issues. Identifying underlying themes and strategies necessary to create coherent and informed architectural languages constitutes the effort underlying this book.
