Описание: The idea that architecture can be portable is one that grabs the imagination of both designers and the people who use it, perhaps because it so often forecasts a dynamic and creative solution to the complex problems of our contemporary mobile society, while at the same time dealing with issues of practicality, economy and sustainability. Architecture in Motion examines the development of portable, transportable, demountable and temporary architecture from prehistory to the present day. From familiar vernacular models such as the tent, mobile home and houseboat, to ambitious developments in military and construction engineering, all aspects of portable building are considered. Building on his earlier works Portable Architecture and Houses in Motion, Robert Kronenburg compares traditional forms of building, current commercial products and the work of innovative designers, and examines key contemporary portable buildings to reveal surprising, exciting and imaginative examples. He explores the philosophical and technological issues raised by these experimental and futuristic prototypes. By understanding the nature of transitory architecture, a new ecologically aware design strategy can be developed to prioritise buildings that 'tread lightly on the earth' and still convey the sense of identity and community necessary for an established responsible society. This book provides a unique insight into this pivotal field of design.
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: 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.
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: Explores the mutual attraction between architecture and other forms of contemporary art. This book develops the concept of `kissing` to describe the intimacy between architecture and various types of art - particularly multimedia installations that take place in and on the surfaces of buildings.
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: 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.
