Constructed Ecologies: Critical Reflections on Ecology with Design

Margaret Grose

Constructed Ecologies: Critical Reflections on Ecology with Design by Margaret Grose

Today, designers are shifting the practice of landscape architecture towards the need for a more complex understanding of ecological science. Constructed Ecologies presents ecology as critical theory for design, and provides major ideas for design that are supported with solid and imaginative science.

In the questioning narrative of Constructed Ecologies, the author discards many old and tired theories in landscape architecture. With detailed documentation, she casts off the savannah theory, critiques the search for universals, reveals the needed role of designers in large-scale agriculture,...

Offsite Architecture: Constructing the future

Ryan E. Smith

Offsite Architecture: Constructing the future by Ryan E. Smith

Architects have been intrigued by prefabricated construction since the early twentieth century. Recent advances in design, engineering and manufacturing processes have led to a significant expansion in the use of pre-assembled components, which are fitted to finished structures on site. Collectively, such processes are becoming known as "offsite construction."

A ground-breaking text, Offsite Architecture establishes the current - and future - state of thinking in this field. A range of the most highly regarded thinkers and practitioners from around the globe share their ideas and practical findings...

The Dublin-Belfast Development Corridor: Ireland's Mega-City Region?

John Yarwood

The Dublin-Belfast Development Corridor: Ireland's Mega-City Region? by John YarwoodThe aim of the Dublin-Belfast Development Corridor is to link several towns and cities by various modes of communication in order to create a poly-centric mega-city region in Ireland on a scale large enough to compete with the major urban clusters of continental Europe. This volume brings together an interdisciplinary team of leading scholars and practitioners from both sides of the border to discuss the Dublin-Belfast corridor and the associated challenges of cross-border development from economic, geographic, regional studies, sociological and planning perspectives. As well as providing insight...

The Law School at the University of Virginia: Architectural Expansion in the Realm of Thomas Jefferson

Philip Mills Herrington

The Law School at the University of Virginia: Architectural Expansion in the Realm of Thomas Jefferson by Philip Mills Herrington

As a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a masterwork of Thomas Jefferson, the "Academical Village" at the heart of the University of Virginia has long attracted the attention of visitors and scholars alike. Yet today Jefferson's original structures make up only a small fraction of a campus comprising over 1,600 acres.

The Law School at the University of Virginia traces the history of one of the eight original schools of the University to study the development of the University Grounds over nearly two hundred years. In this book, Philip Mills Herrington relates the remarkable story of how the Law...

Transitions: Concepts + Drawings + Buildings

Christine Hawley

Transitions: Concepts + Drawings + Buildings by Christine HawleyMost architectural books written by practising architects fall into two categories: theoretical texts, or monographs that describe and illustrate the author's projects. This book combines both, as it explores and illustrates the methodological journey required to translate a concept to a drawing and a drawing to a building. While the term 'methodological' might imply an Aristotelian logic, there is no attempt here to rationalise the process of conception, but instead an acknowledgement of an experimental approach that presupposes a subtle knowledge of the projects. It shows the architect's fascination...

Contemporary Japanese Architecture: Tracing the Next Generation

James Steele

Contemporary Japanese Architecture: Tracing the Next Generation by James Steele

Contemporary Japanese Architecture presents a clear and comprehensive overview of the historical and cultural framework that informs the work of all Japanese architects, as an introduction to an in-depth investigation of the challenges now occupying the contemporary designers who will be the leaders of the next generation. It separates out the young generation of Japanese architects from the crowded, distinguished, multi-generational field they seek to join, and investigates the topics that absorb them, and the critical issues they face within the new economic reality of Japan and a shifting...

Reinventing an Urban Vernacular: Developing Sustainable Housing Prototypes for Cities Based on Traditional Strategies

Terry Moor

Reinventing an Urban Vernacular: Developing Sustainable Housing Prototypes for Cities Based on Traditional Strategies by Terry Moor

With increasing population and its associated demand on our limited resources, we need to rethink our current strategies for construction of multifamily buildings in urban areas. Reinventing an Urban Vernacular addresses these new demands for smaller and more efficient housing units adapted to local climate.

In order to find solutions and to promote better urban communities with an overall environmentally responsible lifestyle, this book examines a wide variety of vernacular building precedents, as they relate to the unique characteristics and demands of six distinctly different regions of the...

Intelligent Infrastructure: Zip Cars, Invisible Networks, and Urban Transformation

Intelligent Infrastructure: Zip Cars, Invisible Networks, and Urban Transformation by T. F. Tierney

While many of its traditional elements, such as roads and utilities, do not change, urban infrastructure is undergoing a fascinating and necessary transformation in the wake of new information and communication technologies. This volume brings together many of the most important new voices in the fields impacting modern urban infrastructure to explore this revolutionary change in the city.

Increasingly, it is connective systems rather than built forms that bind a city together. Intelligent infrastructure confers upon a city previously unimagined levels of adaptability, with mobile telephony serving...

Narrative Architecture: A Designer's Story

Narrative Architecture: A Designer's Story by Sylvain De Bleeckere & Sebastiaan Gerards

Narrative Architecture explores the postmodern concept of narrative architecture from four perspectives: thinking, imagining, educating, and designing, to give you an original view on our postmodern era and architectural culture.

With more than 100 black and white images...

City Branding: The Ghostly Politics of Representation in Globalising Cities

Alberto Vanolo

City Branding: The Ghostly Politics of Representation in Globalising Cities by Alberto Vanolo

Since the 1990s, city branding has become a key factor in urban development policies. Cities all over the world take specific actions to manipulate the imagery and the perceptions of places, both in the eyes of the inhabitants and in those of potential tourists, investors, users and consumers.

City Branding: The Ghostly Politics of Representation in Globalising Cities explores different sides of place branding policies. The construction and the manipulation of urban images triggers a complex politics of representation, modifying the visibility and the invisibility of spaces, subjects, problems...

Juan O'Gorman: A Confluence of Civilizations

Catherine Nixon Cooke

Juan O'Gorman: A Confluence of Civilizations by Catherine Nixon CookeTo create the "Confluence of Civilizations" mural commissioned for the 1968 World's Fair in San Antonio, Texas, Juan O'Gorman collected natural stones from all over Mexico—twelve colors in all—field stones that the artist knew would never fade or change their hue. Juan O'Gorman: A Confluence of Civilizations follows the life of Juan O'Gorman and covers the creation of this spectacular piece of midcentury public art that stands the test of time not just in vibrancy but as one of the most influential works created by a storied Mexican artist.

Juan O'Gorman was a not only a painter and a muralist,...

Retired, Rehabbed, Reborn: The Adaptive Reuse of America's Derelict Religious Buildings and Schools

Robert Simons & Gary DeWine & Larry Ledebur

Retired, Rehabbed, Reborn: The Adaptive Reuse of America's Derelict Religious Buildings and Schools by Robert Simons & Gary DeWine & Larry Ledebur

Each year in the United States, hundreds of religious buildings and schools become vacant or underutilized as congregations and populations merge, move, or diminish. These structures are often well located, attractive, eligible for tax credits, and available for redevelopment. In this practical and innovative handbook, authors Simons, DeWine, and Ledebur have compiled a step-by-step guide to finding sustainable new uses for vacant structures. The reuse of these important buildings offers those charged with revitalizing them an opportunity to capture their embodied energy, preserve local beloved...

Ichnographia Rustica: Stephen Switzer and the designed landscape

Ichnographia Rustica: Stephen Switzer and the designed landscape by William Alvis Brogden

One of the most significant occurrences in the history of design was the creation of the English Landscape Garden. Accounts of its genesis...the surprising structural change from the formal to a seeming informal are numerous. But none has ever been quite convincing and none satisfactorily placed the contributions of Stephen Switzer.

Unlike his contemporaries, Switzer - an 18th century author of books on gardening and agricultural improvement - grasped a quite new principle: that the fashionable pursuit of great gardens should be "rural and extensive", rather than merely the ornamentation of a...
