Описание: This artist book is the most comprehensive survey of Novembres interior architecture and product design. In little over a decade Fabio Novembre has made a name for himself with eye-candy interiors, spectacular installations, and lush yet functional product designs. Novembre is a solo voice in todays chorus of minimalism, creating interiors, furniture, designs, and installations by mixing old and new materials, setting the time zone between Byzantium and Blade Runner. Strong and eloquent, in no way humble or soft-spoken, his architecture is radically explicit and manifest. He interweaves the pleasures of living with high design seemingly with perfect ease to create environments as he himself experiences them: intensely, and on a vibrantly personal level. This book is a comprehensive survey of Novembres designs to date, including the Blumarine store in London, the S.O.S. chair, and his chaise lounge for Cappellinipoetic creations that stir the often-lazy territories of communication and contemporary design and set new markers to future courses for international design style.
Описание: The bungalow as we know it was created when British colonial administrators adapted a classic style of Indian architecture to build their summer retreats: All the typical rooms of a house were organized on one floor around a central parlor. Bungalows today are single- or one-anda- half-stories buildings combining the ingenious spatial solutions of apartment floor plans with the autonomy of detached single-family houses. And they are back in vogue again not only among homebuyers because they are highly functional, eco-friendly and easily accessible, which also makes them a valuable investment for the future. The bungalows presented in this volume show the wide variety of options in terms of size, floor plans and design. The featured designers and architects create homes that satisfy the highest demands for uniqueness, comfort and quality.

Описание: Architects use CAD to help them visualize their ideas. Parametric design is a fast- growing development of CAD that lets architects and designers specify the key parameters of their model and make changes interactively. Whenever changes are made the rest of the model updates automatically. Through a detailed description of various parametric, generative and algorithmic techniques, this book provides a practical guide to generating geometric and topological solutions for various situations, including explicit step-by-step tutorials. While the techniques and algorithms can be generalized to suit to any parametric environment, the book illustrates its concepts using the scripting languages of one of the most powerful 3D visualization and animation design software systems (Autodesk 3ds Max MAXScript), one of the most popular open-source Java-based scripting environments (Processing), and a brand new language specifically tailored for parametric and generative design (Autodesk DesignScript). This clear, accessible book will have a wide appeal to students and practitioners who would like to experiment with parametric techniques.
