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: Uses case studies to explore different theoretical approaches to get closer to the buildings being discussed. This work details the inadequacy of the first histories of the Modern Movement by revealing the existence of suppressed alternative traditions within the movement. It takes a fresh look at the debates surrounding architecture and theory.

Описание: This StadiumATLAS is a building-type planning guide for the construction of spectator stands in modern sports and event complexes. A methodological comparison of the venues of the FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany continues into a catalogue of "Technical recommendations and requirements" for the new erection or the modernization of multi-functional sports arenas on the basis of current European building regulations. The main focus lies on all essential and relevant aspects of planning and developing future concepts for the construction of grandstands. Requirements for the building type of "gathering space" have changed significantly within the course of the last decades. Achieving higher convenience for spectators and a better commercial exploitation have become guiding principles for the design of new sports complexes. In this handbook, the principles of building regulations and the guidelines of important sports associations are analyzed and interrelated in order to clarify dependencies and enable critical conclusions on the respective regulations. The StadiumATLAS aims to illustrate the constructional and geometrical effects of certain specifications and to facilitate decision-making for planners and clients regarding important parameters of stadium design.

Описание: This is an important book, written by one of the top lighting designers in the country. Written at the end of a career as an architect and lighting designer, the book draws on the experience gained while living through a period of intense lighting development, from 1956 up to the millenium. It bridges the gap between the present day architect and lighting engineer, from the viewpoint of the 'independent lighting designer'. 'Lighting Modern Buildings' documents the part played by the independent lighting designer, leading to a greater understanding by architects and lighting engineers of the importance of lighting in architectural design. The book starts with an exploration of the basic human needs of vision and the perception of our exterior world...the intellectual and the physical...since this is what lighting is all about. To do this, it is necessary to trace the development of daylight from earliest times up to the present day; the starting point for any lighting design is the 'natural' source. Whilst an essential understanding of the role of daylight is the beginning, a knowledge of the various forms and properties of artificial light is essential; not only at night but during the day. In early buildings, there was one form of light - daylight - during the day and another - artificial - at night. No attempt was made to integrate the two. The situation today is different; there are many reasons for this, not least in the possibilities of modern structure. The book therefore has extensive coverage of day and night lighting and how it is designed to provide optimum solutions in building design. A major portion of Derek Phillips' book is devoted to 'design'. Sufficient technical detail is provided in the book to permit an understanding of the design principles of each scheme. Schemes illustrated vary from small domestic buildings, churches and workplace, to those devoted to leisure and sport. At the end of each section a series of conclusions are drawn leading to a philosophy of lighting design. * Learn how to design optimum lighting solutions * Understand how to bridge the gap between architects and lighting engineers * Discover how to integrate natural and artificial light sources

Описание: More than any other phenomenon, the skyscraper has determined the character of the American city, altering its physicality and land use patterns; prompting
design, technological, and infrastructure developments; creating internal work environments; and redefining boundaries and expectations of individuals and groups defined by gender,
class, and ethnicity. This volume examines the various dimensions of the skyscraper in its American urban context. Focusing on the major skyscraper cities of New York and Chicago
between 1870 and 1960, the studies in this volume address many of the major aspects of the skyscraper through a diversity of disciplines, including planning and public policy, art and
architectural history, labor and business history, and American studies.
The result is a kaleidoscopic view of the skyscraper, a building type whose existence as object and
icon is inextricably linked to the city itself.
