Описание: The International conference on Design & Decision Support Systems in Architecture and Urban Planning is organised bi-annually by the Eindhoven University of Technology. This volume contains a selection of papers from the seventh conference that was held at De Ruwenberg Castle in Sint-Michiels Gestel, The Netherlands, from 2 to 5 July, 2004.Traditionally, the DDSS conferences aim to be a platform for both starting and experienced researchers who focus on the development and application of computer support in the areas of urban planning and architectural design. This results in an interesting mix of well-established research projects and first explorations. It also leads to a very valuable cross-over of theories, methods, and technologies for support systems in the two different areas, architecture and urban planning. This volume contains 22 peer reviewed papers from this year's conference that are organised into five sections: * Applications of Artificial Intelligence, * Visualisation fro Design and Decision Support, * Simulation and Agent Technology, * Design Research and Design Support Systems, * Geographical Information Systems. Together, these papers provide an excellent overview of the latest results in research and development of design and decision support systems in architecture and urban planning.
Описание: As Paris stood at the cusp of the 20th century in the advent of the turmoils of the First World War, it entered a golden age of affluence and artistic creativity - the Belle Epoque. This was the Paris of artists such as Bonnard, Rodin, Seurat and Vuillard, as well as writers and musicians such as Debussy, Maupassant and Zola.
Описание: We are at a new moment in architecture, one when many cultures are contributing to the unfolding of modernism. This enriching influence is broadening the mix, extending the range available to architecture, of materials and colours, of evocative forms, of cultural referencand of social thinking. In an era of boredom with monocultures and orthodoxies, there is the almost universal expectation that the metroculture, be it in London or Beijing, will provide broadened cultural experiences in food, performance, dress and sound. The new ethnically diverse city is a place of zesty daily encounters/collisions/cohabitation between cultures, a place of mixed signals, contradictions, delightful confusions. Franco-Japanese cuisine, elite schoolchildren wearing doo-rags, jazz performed on gamelansno matter what one's mother culture - we're all getting addicted to varied rhythms, different emotional emphases, other' ideas of beauty. This change is visible in schools of architecture, at least in the range of students, typically from many ethnicities, none of them constituting a majority. No wonder, then, that there is increased interest in ways that architecture can incorporate a larger compass of riches. A rising group of practitioners is meeting the challenge of this broadening cultural landscape in pursuing strategies of quick switching, layering, reframing. These new architectural expressions of multiple cultures represent an enrichment that ultimately might help create a more robust modernism, helping to rescue it from a potato blight' of too much sameness.

Описание: In this study, Edson Armi offers a fresh interpretation of Romanesque architecture. Armi focuses on buildings in northern Italy, Switzerland, southern France,
and Catalonia, the regions where Romanesque architecture first appeared around 1000 AD. He integrates the study of medieval structure with an understanding of construction,
decoration and articulation in an effort to determine the origins and originality of medieval architecture and the formation of the High Romanesque style, especially in Burgundy, at sites
such as Cluny III.
Relying on a close analysis of the fabric of key buildings, Armi's in-depth study reveals new knowledge about design decisions in the early Middle Ages. It
also demonstrates that the mature Romanesque of the twelfth century continues many of the applications created and perfected over the previous one hundred years.
Описание: This book probes the role of culture in state craft by examining how seventeenth-century rulers pressed art and architecture into the service. Alice Jarrard
focuses on the ambitious Italian patron, Duke Francesco d'Este of Modena, who deployed art works strategically for his exiled family. Drawing from vital Italian court traditions for his
festival practices, the duke imported opera theater designs from Venice and called on famed Roman artists, including Girolamo Rainaldi, Francesco Borromini, Pietro da Cortona, and
Gianlorenzo Bernini, to create portraits and palaces.
The duke's spectacular image informed Este projects in Rome, and through his designer Vigarani, who was summoned to
Paris to build a theater, shaped the early cultural practice of Louis XIV. Demonstrating how performance brought paintings, sculptures, and buildings to life by dissolving the boundaries
between distant courts, Jarrard reveals the dynamic role of art in seventeenth-century political discourse.

Описание: Computer Aided Manufacture in Architecture is both a critical introduction and a practical guide to CAM. It argues that our understanding and exploration of CAM requires more than knowledge of the technology involved. It also demands an awareness of its relation to existing practices of design and making. By placing CAM within the context of both traditional craft and mechanised mass production, this book shows how we can begin to 'change the craft of design'. Callicott covers both the origins of CAM and its future applications outside of conventional manufacturing. A number of experimental projects - undertaken specifically for the research of the book - consider the strategies for future multi-disciplinary applications. Techniques explored include both the rapid prototyping of objects within the design studio and large-scale examples within the manufacturing industry using CNC machining strategies. Together they provide designers with an unprecedented opportunity to carry out complex and unique proposals within research and commercial practice. Computer aided manufacture greatly increases the palette of tools available to designers and in so doing changes both the craft of design and the design process itself. This book explores the questions that this throws open and challenges the way in which we design today - do we succumb to pre-packaged solutions, or are we still in control of the technology we use?
*A concise, clear, 'how to do it' guide to a new and exciting area of architecture *Allows you to explore the challenges that face architects today *Describes techniques and outlines what value they bring to the design process
