Описание: This book provides a survey of the architecture and urbanism of Provence during the Roman era. Provence, or 'Gallia Narbonensis' as the Romans called it, was one of the earliest Roman colonies in Western Europe. In this book, James C. Anderson, jr. examines the layout and planning of towns in the region, both those founded by the Romans and those redeveloped from native settlements. He provides an in-depth study of the chronology, dating and remains of every type of Roman building for which there is evidence in Provence. The stamp of Roman civilization is apparent today in such cities as Orange, Nimes and Arles, where spectacular remains of bridges, theaters, fora and temples attest to the sophisticated civilization that existed in this area during the imperial period and late antiquity. This book focuses on the remains of buildings that can still be seen, exploring decorative elements and their influence from Rome and local traditions, as well as their functions within the urban environment.
Описание: Contemporary architectural theory emphasizes the importance of ‘tectonics’, the term used to articulate the relationship between construction, structure and architectural expression. Despite the term’s currency, little consideration has been given to its origins or historical significance. In this study, Werner Oechslin examines the attempts by early modern theoreticians of architecture to grapple with the relationship between appearance and essence, which is crucial to the discourse of tectonics. Referring to the writings of Joseph Lux, Karl Botticher, and Adolf Loos, Oechslin follows this development from theories of a classical architecture without columnar orders to a Modern architecture upholding the ‘truth’of its own architectural expression. Oechslin locates the culmination of this discourse in the work of Adolf Loos and in Le Corbusier’s frequent references to Ancient Greece as the precedent of Modern architecture’s honesty. This volume includes an anthology of primary texts by several theorists published in English for the first time.

Описание: Protocell Architecture Neil Spiller and Rachel Armstrong Throughout the ages architects have attempted to capture the essence of living systems as design inspiration. However, practitioners of the built environment have had to deal with a fundamental split between the artificial urban landscape and nature owing to a technological gap' that means architects have been unable to make effective use of biological systems in urban environments. Protocell Architecture is an edition of AD that shows for the first time that contemporary architects can create and construct architectures that are bottom up, synthetically biological, green and have no recourse to shallow bio-mimicry. In the next few decades, synthetic biology is set to have as much, if not more, impact on architecture as cyberspace and the digital. The key to these amazing architectural innovations is the Protocell. Contributors include : Rachel Armstrong, Martin Hanczyc, Lee Cronin and Mark Morris. Architects include Neil Spiller, Nic Clear, IwamotoScott, Paul Preissner, Omar Khan, Dan Slavinsky, Philip Beesley and Neri Oxman.

Описание: Focuses on the role of the technical aspects of architectural design, as part of the process of innovation and in relation to the mythic opposition between vision and construction. This title argues that by making symbolic expression a primary objective in the design of a project, designers produce a practical aesthetic and an ethical solution.
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: Contains information about technologies available for architects and designers. This book presents materials by describing their fundamental characteristics, and identifies and suggests how these same characteristics can be exploited by professionals to achieve their design goals.

Описание: Ken Yeangs ideas and architecture have been prolifically published worldwide. This book, however, marks the first definitive overview of Yeangs work. As well as an extensive introduction by author Sara Hart, it includes a preface by Lord Foster and a further article by influential architect and academic John Frazer and commentary by Leon van Schaik. The book is organized thematically by project. It features over 30 projects by Ken Yeang drawn from over three decades of practice.

Описание: This is the first volume of a major theoretical work by Patrik Schumacher, which outlines how the discipline of architecture should be understood as its own distinct system of communication. (Autopoeisis comes from the Greek and means literally self-production; it was first adopted in biology in the 1970s to describe the essential characteristics of life as a circular self-organising system and has since been transposed into a theory of social systems and communication.) This new autopoeitic approach offers architecture an arsenal of general comparative concepts. It allows architecture to be understood as a distinct discipline, which can be analysed in elaborate detail while at the same time offering insightful comparisons with other subject areas, such as art, science and political discourse. On the basis of such comparisons the book insists on the necessity of disciplinary autonomy and argues for a sharp demarcation from both art and engineering. Schumacher accordingly argues controversially that design intelligence and architecture as a discipline has its own its own internal logic.
Описание: Charles Jencks was the first to demonstrate that Modern architecture in the 1960s and 1970s had undergone a profound mutation into three major approaches - Post-Modernism, Late Modernism and New Modernism. He has shown how our pluralist age has oscillated between these and traditional approaches . In this classic title, the thinking and ideas that have informed, and continue to inform the architecture and urban design around us today, was presented as a compilation of writings by the most important architects, urbanists and theorists of the second half of the 20th century. Thew edition brings thinking up to date with additional material that suggests the direction theory is taking into the 21st century.

Описание: This introduction to building systems for architects explores the basic physical principles and requirements of every aspect of passive and active controls in buildings. Rather than obsessing about the technical, engineering-related aspects of environmental controls, Environmental Issues for Architecture supports an understanding of environmental systems in order to inform architectural design. With topics ranging from lighting, acoustics, thermal control, plumbing, fire protection and egress, to elevators and escalators, all of the latest technologies are supported by an introductory historical perspective that helps the designer understand how developments in these areas has had a major influence on architectural design. Taking a designer-friendly approach, Smith supplies just enough technical information for architects to design buildings that are efficient and comfortable.
