    3+2: Durbach Block Jaggers

    3+2 is a 'double album': two books in one sleeve beautifully printed by master offset printers in Japan. It features two bodies of photography looking at the work of one of Australia's most respected and awarded architectural practices -- Durbach Block Jaggers. Photographers Andrew Cowan and Julia Charles worked with the architects, alongside the award winning-designer Mark Gowing and editor Andrew Mackenzie, to refine a portrait of images over a period of several years.The two photographers, Andrew Cowan and Julia Charles, are neither known for, nor particularly interested in, the conventions of architectural photography. This makes their photographic voice, and this book, distinct from the architectural mainstream.

  • Architecture Activism

    Architecture Activism

    Founded in LA in 1998, GRAFT is a global architectural practice known for its experimental and interdisciplinary designs as well as for its strong social commitment. GRAFT were also co-founders of Brad Pitt's 'Make It Right' foundation. This publication documents projects characteristic of their sense of social responsibility - portraying architecture (as well as urban design and product design) as an active tool for driving, in a global context, the development of places worth living in. One key project is the Solar Kiosk developed in 2012, a high-output, solar-based unit which is already used by many communities in Sub-Saharan Africa to secure their power supply.

  • Beauty Redeemed: Recycling Post-Industrial Landscapes

    Beauty Redeemed: Recycling Post-Industrial Landscapes

    Coping with post-industrial brownfields is an issue throughout Europe and North America. In Germany, industrial relics were not demolished or converted but perceived as integral parts of the overall concept and then imbued with new meaning and use. Many post-industrial sites have since been refurbished into attractive urban parks. This book does not only describe a systematic framework for the use of post-industrial ruins it also contextualises them in design history.

  • Blank State: An Architectural Coloring Book

    Blank State: An Architectural Coloring Book

    Blank State is more than a colouring book: it is an exercise in collaboration, inviting the participant to contribute to the act of creation. Architecture and urban planning impacts our lives dramatically, dictating how we interact with our everyday environments, yet they are largely out of the lay person's control. This book allows everyone to make their mark through the use of colour and value. Starting with prehistory and progressing through a re-imagined past, present and future, this book reinvents an architectural legacy, a “blank state” ready to be coloured in or not. All that is needed is imagination and a willingness to dream.

    Border Ecologies: Hong Kong's Mainland Frontier

    Hong Kong's border with Shenzhen is dissolving. By 2047, the border will likely not exist. Integration with the Mainland will remove distinctions created by the "One Country Two Systems" policy. The book explores this unique border ecology. Design strategies inserted within this ecology promote alternate forms of development. The example widens the discourse on borders to raise critical issues that impact the contemporary city.

  • Building and Living in Communities

    Building and Living in Communities

    How and why are more and more people choosing to build and live in communities - in housing with shared spaces? What motivates them, and what different forms can this take? What contribution can architecture and building culture make in this context? This book shows 26 projects from Germany, Europe and further afield that offer answers to these questions and have been realised by collective custom build project initiatives or co-operative housing associations.Using different means and concepts, each of them responds to changing lifestyles and different locations. With the help of innovative planning and building processes, they develop solutions that address the specific needs and wishes of their residents. A central principle is the wish to live within one's own four walls while being part of a community of neighbours and friends, sharing communal spaces and a sense of social commitment. As such, they present ways of combining modern lifestyles with classical principles.Additional essays provide in-depth information on selected aspects of community-oriented housing, ranging from the economic benefits for society as a whole to the specifics of land allocation procedures, social aspects and suitable legal forms.

  • Building from Waste SPECIAL PRICE

    Building from Waste SPECIAL PRICE

    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Recover is the sustainable guideline that has replaced the "Take, Make, Waste" attitude of the industrial age. Based on their background at the ETH Zurich and the Future Cities Laboratory in Singapore, the authors provide both a conceptual and practical look into materials and products which use waste as a renewable resource.This book introduces an inventory of current projects and building elements, ranging from marketed products, among them facade panels made of straw and self-healing concrete, to advanced research and development like newspaper, wood or jeans denim used as isolating fibres. Going beyond the mere recycling aspect of reused materials, it looks into innovative concepts of how materials usually regarded as waste can be processed into new construction elements. The products are organized along the manufacturing processes: densified, reconfigured, transformed, designed and cultivated materials.

  • Building Integrated Solar Technology

    Building Integrated Solar Technology

    The integration of solar power systems into buildings is no longer just a technical matter, but also a structural and aesthetic challenge. This book provides the necessary expertise for this purpose. In addition to basic physics and technological developments in photovoltaics and solar thermal, the publication offers abundant advice from architects on how to successfully integrate solar systems into buildings. A number of chapters address the economical and ecological deployment of solar technology as well as issues of building laws and the preservation of listed buildings. Illustrated and expanded by numerous photos and detailed project documentation, Building-Integrated Solar Technology not only demonstrates the tremendous variety of construction tasks and integration possibilities, but also shows that self-sustaining buildings in terms of energy can also become a powerful architectural and cultural asset.

  • Cartographic Grounds: Projecting the Landscape Imaginary

    Cartographic Grounds: Projecting the Landscape Imaginary

    Mapping has been one of the most fertile areas of exploration for architecture and landscape in the past few decades. While documenting this shift in representation from the material and physical description toward the depiction of the unseen and often immaterial, Cartographic Grounds takes a critical view toward the current use of data mapping and visualization and calls for a return to traditional cartographic techniques to reimagine the manifestation and manipulation of the ground itself. Each of the ten chapters focuses on a single cartographic technique-sounding/spot elevation, isobath/contour, hachure/hatch, shaded relief, land classification, figure-ground, stratigraphic column, cross-section, line symbol, conventional sign-and illustrates it through beautiful maps and plans from notable designers and cartographers throughout history, from Leonardo da Vinci to James Corner Field Operations. Mohsen Mostafavi, dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, introduces the book.

  • Cartographics: Designing the Modern Map

    Cartographics: Designing the Modern Map

    We rely on maps everywhere in our daily lives, and their uses are constantly evolving in our rapidly changing world. Cartographics: Designing the Modern Map is a collection of maps that wander off the beaten path of mapmaking and redefine exactly what a map can do. With hundreds of innovative maps from cartographers around the world, Cartographics ushers in a new and advanced age of mapping in which technological innovation, observation, and artistic vision are linked as one.Two sections, "Mapping the Physical Environment" and "Mapping Human Activity", feature maps that depict a wide variety of themes; some incorporate strategies from infographics, such as one that uses abstract depictions of public transportation lines to display riders' travel patterns as well as physical features, while others use traditional strategies to explore contemporary subjects such as geopolitical maps of fictional countries in video games, gentrification in Brooklyn, or the geology of Great Britain.
