Описание: Sustainable architecture is one of the most popular trends today. With dense urban living and less green space available, green walls and roofs are helping to fill that gap. These living structures can be created with vegetation, which helps to absorb rainwater, provide insulation, and lower temperatures while creating a habitat for natural flora and fauna. 'Green Walls Green Roofs' features projects from all over the world, showing how these elements work in various climates. Ranging from the tropical houses in Singapore to inner-city buildings in North America, this richly illustrated book will show you how living architecture can enrich our world.

Описание: Baltimore was an innovator in the development of cast-iron architecture, but the citys heritage of buildings in this genre, once numbering more than a hundred, has dwindled to only a handful today. The Baltimore region also had a long tradition in iron production, beginning with the colonial era and continuing through the 1950s as Sparrows Point became the single largest steel complex in the world. Baltimores Cast-Iron Buildings is a celebration of a unique aspect of Baltimores architectural and industrial history. The authors examine cast-iron buildings in an integrated way to show how the material was fabricated and the buildings erected. They also explore the cast and wrought ironwork used for gates, fences, railings, and ornaments. The heavily illustrated work includes ironwork catalogs from the mid-1800s.

Описание: The apartment house is the most typical form of urban living space. Creating layered living spaces is therefore one of the most important and multifaceted tasks for contemporary architects worldwide. This concerns not only the provision of housing facilities for the urban and suburban population but equally important also the shaping of streets and cityscapes. The selection includes buildings characterized by contemporary adaptions of traditional floor plans as well as individual floor plans on every floor, space-efficient and functional single-bedroom units as well luxurious accommodations with six and more rooms plus several bathrooms. Furthermore, exterior building design is also covered: from different types of repetitive facades, to building-shells that reflect the specific urban context and exteriors with a design that work as an eye-catcher in the urban fabric.

Описание: Jorn Utzon received worldwide fame as the architect of the Sydney Opera House, but his much larger body of work has a breadth and depth that is of great importance for modern architectural history. And yet, little is known of his work outside of academic architectural circles. Arguably the most important Danish architect of the twentieth century, Utzon pioneered the movement for modern architecture to reconnect with its particular place and time without abandoning the techniques and materials that made it accessible to larger audiences. Modernism, for Utzon, didn't need to sacrifice particularity and local character in order to retain relevance and his widely varied work around the globe--from the National Assembly in Kuwait to the Bagsvaerd Church in Denmark and of course the Opera House in Sydney--is a testament to this approach's success. This book is a collection of these successes, told thematically so that Utzon's integral approach and lasting effects might be understood for what they are--at once particular and universal.
