Fire, Crime & Accident:...

Architecture for rescue services has come a long way in the past decade. Buildings for the police, fire brigades and ambulance stations have lost their often primitive and shed-like appearance and have begun to strive for recognition as an equitable architectural typology since Zaha Hadid s trailblazing Vitra fire station in Weil am Rhein. This certainly is a challenge because there are numerous conditions to be taken into account in terms of functionality and especially security. The examples chosen for this title show an amazing diversity of emergency architecture.

Affordable building lots in central locations in the large cities and metropolises are rare. When there are no available gaps in the urban structure, attic conversions and extensions are an interesting and favored form of redensification. This volume explores approximately 60 attic projects, as extensions, conversions, or new construction, which utilize the previously used storage space for new use. Existing buildings are expanded upwards and adapted to the contemporary desires and demands of their use. Some constitute a homogenous extension of the existing facade and augment the view in a barely noticeable way. Others use the design freedom above the eave height in order to create a 21st century architecture which contrasts with the historical building substance.

Like in the past the towers of the cathedrals, sky scrapers became the defining features of cityscapes with the advent of the 20th century. Since the turn of the millennium they are again among the most prestigious and coveted architectural challenges. The design freedom of contours and the plastic volume of blobs have long since superseded the purely orthogonal towers of the past. Most current projects are being implemented in the Arab-Asian realm, such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world's highest building.

Airport Architecture

280,35 zł Cena

Airports today are much more than gateways to cities, countries or continents. They have developed into city-like complexes and multifunctional systems, which while being set up to serve the needs of smoothly running air traffic, at the same time have taken on all the functions of a normal community: sleeping, shopping, work and leisure time and all that increasingly with 24-7 access. After an era of purely functional architecture, the nodal points of air traffic have become one of the most prominent architectural tasks of the present. Drawing on 60 examples, this volume shows the exciting multiplicity of contemporary airport construction and design.

Masterpieces: Villa...

227,85 zł Cena

Die Villa steht für repräsentative Wohnkultur und gehobenen Lebensstil. Sie ist jedoch mehr als ein großzügiges Wohnhaus mit Grundstück in der Stadt: Die Villa bietet ihren Bewohnern einen "urbanen Landsitz", und vereint das Beste aus Stadt- und Landleben: Repräsentative Architektur und hochwertige Materialien, im Grünen gelegen und doch nah an den urbanen Attraktionen. Es lebt sich ruhig und zurückgezogen, aber dennoch in direkter Verbindung zur Stadt. Für Architekten bietet die Planung oder der Umbau einer Villa die spannende Herausforderung, eine klassische Bauaufgabe neu und zeitgemäß zu interpretieren.

Light in Architecture

456,75 zł Cena
"Licht erst ermöglicht die räumliche Wahrnehmung weswegen Licht integraler Bestandteil von Architektur ist. Die Lichtgestaltung wird seit einigen Jahren zunehmend farbiger und lebendiger. Die ausgewählten Projekte zeigen, wie gute Architektur durch den Einsatz von Licht an Qualität gewinnen kann. Bei der Gestaltung von Innenräumen ist es die Funktion der Tageslichtführung und des Kunstlichtarrangements ein räumliches Erlebnis zu schaffen: Besondere Stellen werden akzentuiert, Raumeinheiten abgegrenzt und verschiedene Atmosphären hergestellt. Und auch am Außenbau spielt die Beleuchtung - nicht nur nachts - eine Rolle. Neben der den Baukörper betonenden Ausleuchtung ist es hier auch die plakative Beleuchtung, die dem Bau eine emblematische Einzigartigkeit zu verleihen sucht."

Facade Greenery

82,95 zł Cena
The greening of facades with plants gives a piece of nature back to the city. But a green facade is much more than a charming view: Thanks to its insulating effect, it evens out extreme swings in temperature, protects against UV radiation and improves sound insulation. In that regard one does not have to always rely on the usual ivy. Other evergreen or fruit bearing plants and even exotic flowers can be used as faade decoration. In that way varied and creative greening can be created which lend a colorful aesthetic tone to the cityscape. The 50 projects presented here give an overview of this current trend in landscape architecture.

Automobile Architecture

383,25 zł Cena
The automobile has shaped the appearance of our streets for 100 years now. At the same building types have been created to serve it. Parking garages and gas stations as new species of architecture and showrooms whose exhibition spaces and display windows are markedly different from the usual businesses have decisively changed the cities. This book is dedicated to this type of architecture, showing esthetic and technical solutions of the past few years. Not a few architects have been unmistakable ?car freaks? (Frank Lloyd Wright), or been occupied with the automobile (Le Corbusier: Maison Citrohan), or have actually designed cars (Walter Gropius for Adler). This fascination of the profession can also be seen in the architecture built for the automobile today.

Gesellschaftliche und wirtschaftliche Umwälzungen bedeuten auch immer, dass Gebäude ihren Nutzen verlieren. Zahlreiche ihrer ursprünglichen Funktionen beraubter Bauten warten darauf, einem neuen Nutzen zugeführt zu werden. Durch das zunehmende ökologische Bewusstsein, aber auch aufgrund einer zunehmenden Wertschätzung jedweder bestehenden Bausubstanz, wird – auch aus wirtschaftlichen Erwägungen – immer häufiger statt Abriss auf Umnutzung entschieden. Diese bewegt sich in einem Spannungsfeld zwischen den Polen denkmalpflegerischer Anpassung und radikaler Neuinterpretation, zwischen bewusster Einbeziehung historischer Bedeutung und der wirtschaftlichen Nutzung der vorhandenen Substanz als Rohmaterial.

The chosen projects prove especially that collaboration between educationalists and designers can be uniquely fruitful for the planning and building of kindergartens.
