Описание: Author Brook Muller understands that your design tendencies influence your working methods and impact the "greeness" of your buildings. This book explains design strategies and emphasizes the importance of your poetic judgment when you're dealing with complex and dynamic ecological systems. Muller also speculates architectural possibilities when ecology is embedded in the design process from conceptual phases onward, how these impact the architect?s role, and how ecosystems can inspire architectural space making and order.

Описание: How do architects use colour? Do they adopt a different strategy or starting point for every project? Do they gradually cultivate individual colour palettes, which develop alongside their body of built work? Do they utilise, or are they aware of, the body of theoretical work that underpins the use of colour in the past, and forms the basis of most of the colour systems commercially available today? This book investigates, documents and analyses the works of a number of contemporary architects in order to respond to these questions and provide a clear reference of contemporary colour use. By analysing and investigating current practice, the reader is given an invaluable insight into the possibilities and opportunities available in colour application.

Introducing Architectural Tectonics is an exploration of the poetics of construction. Tectonic theory is an integrative philosophy examining the relationships formed between design, construction, and space while creating or experiencing a work of architecture. In this text, author Chad Schwartz presents an introductory investigation into tectonic theory, subdividing it into distinct concepts in order to make it accessible to beginning and advanced students alike.
The book centers on the tectonic analysis of twenty contemporary works of architecture located in eleven countries including Germany, Italy, United States, Chile, Japan, Bangladesh, Spain, and Australia and designed by such notable architects as Tadao Ando, Herzog & de Meuron, Kengo Kuma, Olson Kundig, and Peter Zumthor. Although similarities do exist between the projects, their distinctly different characteristics location and climate, context, size, program, construction methods and range of interpretations of tectonic expression provide the most significant lessons of the book, helping you to understand tectonic theory. Written in clear, accessible language, these investigations examine the poetic creation of architecture, showing you lessons and concepts that you can integrate into your own work, whether studying in a university classroom or practicing in a professional office."

Описание: An Introduction to Architectural Theory is the first comprehensive and critical history of architectural theory over the last forty years. Mallgrave employs the words theory and architecture in a broad sense--the latter encompassing aspects of urban planning, structural, and landscape design, while theory too is often indistinguishable from practice. The text surveys the intellectual history of architecture since 1968, including criticisms of high modernism, the rise of postmodern and poststructural theory, critical regionalism and tectonics, and the significant changes that architectural thinking has undergone in the past fifteen years, concluding with an analysis of where architecture stands and where it will likely move in the coming years.A sharp and lively text that covers issues in depth but not to the point that they become inaccessible to beginning students, An Introduction to Architectural Theory is the first narrative history of this period, charting the veritable revolution in architectural thinking that has taken place, as well as the implications of this intellectual upheaval.
