Описание: Does energy consumption influence architectural style? Should more energy-efficient buildings look different? Can that "look" be used to explain or enhance their performance? Architecture and Energy provides architects and architectural theorists with more durable arguments for environmental design decisions, arguments addressing three different scales or aspects of contemporary construction. By drawing together essays from the leading experts in the field, this book engages with crucial issues in sustainable design, such as: The larger role of energy in forming the cultural and economic systems in which architecture is conceived, constructed, and evaluated The different measures and meanings of energy "performance" and how those measures are realized in buildings The specific ways in which energy use translates into the visible aspects of architectural style. Drawing on research from the UK, US, Europe, and Asia the book outlines the problems surrounding energy and architecture and provides the reader with a considered overview of this important topic.
Описание: Written by an architect who is director of sustainability at a global architecture firm, this is a guide for architects and related construction professionals to design and build net zero commercial architecture. It offers practical strategies, step-by-step technical analysis, and valuable examples in addition to developed case studies. With a focus on application in a variety of building types and scales, the book also develops a broad based understanding of all the integrated principles involved in achieving net zero energy. The book is a practical guide for anyone venturing into net zero energy design, construction and operation, and also serves as an excellent resource on a variety of sustainable design topics.

Описание: This unique volume offers insights from renowned experts in energy efficient building from the world over, providing a multi-faceted overview of the state-of-the-art in energy efficient architecture. It opens by defining what constitutes a sustainable building, suggesting bases for sorely needed benchmarks, then explains the most important techniques and tools available to engineers and architects exploring green building technologies. It covers such pivotal issues as daylighting, LED lighting, integrating renewables such as solar thermal and cooling, retrofitting, LEED and similar certification efforts, passive houses, net-zero and close-zero structures, water recycling, and much more. Highlighting best practices for commercial buildings and private homes, in widely varied climates and within vastly different socio-economic contexts, this illustrated reference will guide architects and engineers in making sustainable choices in building materials and methods.

The laws of thermodynamics--and their implications for architecture--have not been fully integrated into architectural design. Architecture and building science too often remain constrained by linear concepts and methodologies regarding energy that occlude significant quantities and qualities of energy.
The Hierarchy of Energy in Architecture addresses this situation by providing a clear overview of what energy is and what architects can do with it. Building on the emergy method pioneered by systems ecologist Howard T. Odum, the authors situate the energy practices of architecture within the hierarchies of energy and the thermodynamics of the large, non-equilibrium, non-linear energy systems that drive buildings, cities, the planet and universe.
Part of the PocketArchitecture series, the book is divided into a fundamentals section, which introduces key topics and the emergy methodology, and an applications section, which features case studies applying emergy to various architectural systems. The book provides a concise but rigorous exposure to the system boundaries of the energy systems related to buildings and as such will appeal to professional architects and architecture students.
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: 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.
