Sacred Buildings. A Design...

235,20 zł Cena
This title explains the balance between functionality and spirituality. The design of sacred spaces presents architects with a particular challenge. In few other design tasks is the need to achieve the right balance between function and atmosphere of such importance: which ritual requirements have to be incorporated, which pragmatic needs have to be met for a service? Which specific concerns and traditions of a particular religion must be considered? Which shapes of plan, what type of volume, and which lighting and acoustic concepts contribute to the sacred atmosphere of a space? The publication provides a survey of conceptual principles of designing sacred buildings for Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. It explains technical and planning guidelines for this building type. Altogether sixty-nine case studies from Europe, America, and Asia spanning the last three decades give exemplary answers to this most singular design task.

IN DETAIL: WORK ENVIROIMENTS

328,65 zł Cena
The requirements confronting our workplaces have recently undergone a dramatic transformation. Constantly shifting workspace populations and varying uses of workspace call for flexible spatial structures, and so do new professions and innovative working methods. The planning of workspaces is influenced by the digitalization of our storage media as well as by new materials and building technologies. And yet for all the importance of flexibility and technology, the ultimate focus is still on human beings. How, then, can the multilayered concepts of indoor climate, lighting, acoustics, and ergonomics be reconciled with spatial structures that lend themselves to a wide variety of uses? In keeping with the typological approach of the series, this volume of the series In DETAIL presents the various working environments organized according to use. The focus throughout is on the successful interplay between technical standards, organizational structures, and human needs.

Every project is presented with its typical floor plans to a scale of 1:200; sections, site plans, and photographs illuminate each building s structure and situation. In addition to incorporating some forty new projects, this new edition now contains figure-ground diagrams that highlight the most salient features of the floor plans, making them even easier to compare."

Systems in Timber Engineering

235,20 zł Cena
"Timber construction has become completely modernized. It has gained considerably in market share with respect to competing building materials and is dominated by systems such as frame and solid timber construction. Every timber construction is determined by its structure. Hence it is essential to know the connections and relationships from the design stage right through to the construction phase. Systems in Timber Engineering takes a whole new approach to this subject. It is a comprehensive, analytical, and visually organized treatment, from the simple single-family house to the large-scale multistore structure. It includes the building envelope, which is so important for saving energy, and systems for ceilings and interior dividing walls, which are so essential from the vantage point of construction. This work uses plans, schematic drawings, and pictures to show the current and forward-looking state of the technology as applied in Switzerland, a leading country in the field of timber construction."

Material Revolution

281,40 zł Cena
"Since it is now clear that in the future many raw materials will only be available to us in limited quantities, scientists have for some time been conducting intensive research into possible alternatives. Sustainability is the order of the day and the magic word for a better future in politics and industry. Moreover, environmental consciousness and a penchant for thinking in terms of material cycles have caught on with consumers : the use of environmentally compatible materials and production methods is desired, even taken for granted by the client. Designers and architects thus have a special role and responsibility. For they are the ones who decide what materials will be used on their projects and thus wield enormous influence on the sustainability of our product world. At the same time, we are dealing with a flood of new materials, which calls for specialized knowledge of their properties, their possible use, and their handling. Materials Matter bridges the gap between research and industry on the one hand and designers and architects on the other by offering a systematic overview of the currently available sustainable materials and providing the reader with all the information he or she needs to assess a new material s suitability and potential for a given project. Along the way, it examines natural and biodegradable materials, while also presenting materials with multifunctional properties and the potential for diminishing energy requirements."

Light and Emotions

119,70 zł Cena
"In addition to its practical functions, such as helping to optimize safety and security, lighting also has another principal task creating emotions. Light and color can be used to achieve the most varied and astonishing effects. These effects are dependent on the project and spatial environment, but they also depend in large measure on cultural context. This study is based on forty-seven interviews with leading lighting designers from North and South America, Europe, and Asia. For the first time, it explores in a systematic fashion what aesthetic, emotional,and atmospheric tasks a good lighting design can accomplish. The international diversity of the interviewed designers makes for surprising insights. Universal constants are pointed out, but so are the remarkable differences in reception and effect that are occasioned by different societies and cultures. It is imperative, then, for professional lighting designers and architects to familiarize themselves with these lighting cultures, and this book offers an informative and stimulating opportunity to do so."

Material Design: Informing...

236,25 zł Cena
The approach of Informing Architecture by Materiality opens the way to an innovative use of materials in the design professions. Taking material qualities and properties such as texture, elasticity, transparency and fluidity as a point of departure, the concept described and employed here transcends the conventional definitions of building materials. Instead, the focus is on a multitude of material operations, like folding and bending, carving and cutting, weaving and knitting, mirroring and screening. The featured design strategies and methods address established and "new"; materials alike. They are applied both to the scale of the detail and the entire building. The examples comprise prototype structures as well as large building projects. Nine chapters deal with surfaces and layers, joints and juctions, weaving and texturing, nanoscale transformations, responsiveness, the integration of ephemeral factors like wind and light as well as material collections providing professional resources. Written by renowned experts in this field, the book features many examples from international contemporary architecture. The introductory part provides the conceptual background, while a final chapter describes consequences for pressing issues of today, like sustainability or life cycle assessment.

Tadao Ando - Architektur...

60,90 zł Cena
Dostępność: na zamówienie In the years 1988-1995 the Japanese architect Tadao Ando built a museum complex complete with a hotel, restaurant and seminar rooms on the island Naoshima (Kagawa). Constructed out of concrete, its platforms and walls extend far out into the landscape, framing the natural surroundings as a picture. Ando's customary restraint in his selection of materials, and his preference for simple forms which allow the serenity of the surrounding land and seascape to penetrate the rooms are much in evidence in this masterpiece. In this book, Werner Blaser has successfully captured the essence of tranquility so characteristic of Ando's architecture. His photographs are of an extraordinarily beautiful and reflective intensity. Also included is an introductory essay, drawing comparisons to Ando's other buildings which all succeed in combining nature and geometry.

Atmospheres - Architectural...

132,30 zł Cena
Dostępność: na zamówienie What "really constitutes an architectural atmosphere, Peter Zumthor says, is "this singular density and mood, this feeling of presence, well-being, harmony, beauty ... under whose spell I experience what I otherwise would not experience in precisely this way. Zumthor s passion is the creation of buildings that produce this kind of effect, but how can one actually set out to achieve it?

In nine short, illustrated chapters framed as a process of self-observation, Peter Zumthor describes what he has on his mind as he sets about creating the atmosphere of his houses. Images of spaces and buildings that affect him are every bit as important as particular pieces of music or books that inspire him. From the composition and "presence of the materials to the handling of proportions and the effect of light, this poetics of architecture enables the reader to recapitulate what really matters in the process of house design.

Detail Practice - Glass in...

152,25 zł Cena
Dostępność: na zamówienie "Glass in Building" opens up a whole range of fascinating design possibilities for the planning architect. Glass has long served as a translucent room closing element, but its range of possible uses is actually much wider. It not only offers protection against the external world, for example, noise or fire; despite its apparent fragility, it can even take on load-bearing functions in supporting structures. In combination with various different finishing methods, materials, and coatings, it also satisfies exacting structural-physical standards. "Glass in Building" offers a clear, compact, and illustrated overview of the material-appropriate use of this varied and versatile material in building construction and provides information that goes far beyond the basics on designing with glass and producing and using specialized glass products, as well as on the building and planning regulations that must be taken into account when constructing with glass. A selection of exemplary realized projects rounds out the theoretical section.
