The Urban Code of China

When reading the Chinese city, which this book sets out to do, it is not the well-known cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, and Xi an that are in the focus of attention, but rather the essentially Chinese of the Chinese city, those characteristics or attributes that are more or less shared by all Chinese cities.

Daylighting Design

Über Jahrtausende hinweg haben Menschen ihre Häuser nach der Sonne ausgerichtet. Mit der Verfügbarkeit von künstlichem Licht geriet dies zunehmend aus dem Blick. Angesichts der gesundheitlichen Auswirkungen des Kunstlichts einerseits, steigender Energiekosten andererseits ist das Thema der Tageslichtplanung heute jedoch wieder von großer Bedeutung.

Planning Architecture

In formulating a design concept into a viable plan, architects oscillate constantly between two planes of observation: the actual design task in the context of planning typologies such as residential buildings, office buildings, museum, or airport, and the individual room, meaning the kitchen, office, classroom, sanitary rooms, storage rooms, and so on.

Cerdà and the Barcelona of the Future / Reality versus Project

A look at Ildefons Cerdà’s great urban-planning project for Barcelona’s city extension, the Eixample, which established the guidelines for the unimaginable transformation of the city.

urbanRESET

In den letzten Jahren und Jahrzehnten ist die Auseinandersetzung mit dem architektonischen Erbe des Industriezeitalters immer mehr zur planerischen Aufgabe geworden: Industriebauten und -areale, Infrastrukturanlagen und Wohngebiete haben sich im Zuge des Strukturwandels zu Leerstellen entwickelt, die aber - allein aufgrund ihrer Dimensionen - im Stadtraum nicht zu vernachlässigen sind.

Cities Design and Evolution

Why does modern planning sometimes create urban environments that are less attractive and functional than the 'organic urbanism' of traditional cities? Cities Design and Evolution takes up the challenge of this question, investigating 'how cities are put together', both in the sense of how the parts are organized in relation to the whole, and how they are created or evolve over time.

Green Dream

Everybody's talking about Green these days; sustainable architecture and urbanism are getting almost universal attention. And they deserve it. Who could possibly oppose Green? But there's also a lot of suspicion around Green. Research is contradictory. Conclusions are ambiguous. Who can we trust?

Inscribing a Square

The mental image of the city has become complex. Since mobile phones have become geo-social devices, location-based data is increasingly shaping the way we experience public space.Until recently, the physical and the virtual spaces have been separate domains, now they are tightly packed together into what Malcolm McCullough calls the "Ambient Commons" - the collectively shared domain of environmental information.Media art practices have played an important role in shaping this development.

Accountability Technologies

A growing part of the public is concerned about cities being designed and governed in a responsible way. In the contemporary information society, however, the democratic obligation of the citizens to inform themselves thoroughly, so that they can participate in public affairs has become impossible to fulfill.

Lessons of Informality

Informal settlements made up of corrugated iron shacks and other materials are a ubiquitous feature in the megacities of Africa, Asia and Latin America. In response to the enormous influx of migrants from the countryside, the informal city experienced a phenomenal growth.

Shared Cities Atlas

The 'Shared Cities Atlas' applies the new, global 'sharing paradigm' in architecture and public sphere to a site-specific situation in seven cities in Central Europe. Mapping current practices of sharing and new fields of action in case studies, it contextualizes the phenomenon in research papers, data, and photography.

City of Permanent Temporality

Elma van Boxel and Kristian Koreman, with their firm ZUS, propose a radically new way of making a city: permanent temporality. This strategy is formed around an urban reality of values, material and people; a philosophy based on to the past and orientated towards the future.

Designing Change

"Over the timespan of just one generation the planet's pace of urbanization has dramatically increased. Through these dynamics and its resulting environmental threats, new challenges have emerged that deeply question the validity of the post-war planning paradigms. Dominant ideologies have been replaced by a problem-solving attitude, increased economic pressure and an urgent quest for evidence.

An Introduction to Human Geography

"Trusted for its timeliness and readability, this book introduces geography by emphasizing the relevance of geographic concepts to human problems. Two years after Rubenstein's Update Edition was created to encompass the events of September 11, 2001, this revision also begins the careful process of putting those events into perspective.

Rethinking the Informal City

Latin American cities have always been characterized by a strong tension between what is vaguely described as their formal and informal dimensions. However, the terms formal and informal refer not only to the physical aspect of cities but also to their entire socio-political fabric.

Cities From Scratch

This collection of essays challenges long-entrenched ideas about the history, nature, and significance of the informal neighborhoods that house the vast majority of Latin America's urban poor. Until recently, scholars have mainly viewed these settlements through the prisms of crime and drug-related violence, modernization and development theories, populist or revolutionary politics, or debates about the cultures of poverty.

The Image of the City

The classic work on the evaluation of city form. What does the city's form actually mean to the people who live there? What can the city planner do to make the city's image more vivid and memorable to the city dweller?

Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture

First published in 1966, and since translated into 16 languages, this remarkable book has become an essential document of architectural literature.

Streets and Patterns

There is an emerging consensus that urban street layouts should be planned with greater attention to 'placemaking' and urban design quality, while maintaining the conventional transport functions of accessibility and connectivity. However, it is not always clear how this might be achieved: we still tend to have different sets of guidance for main road networks and for local streetgrids.

The Eyes of the Skin

First published in 1996, The Eyes of the Skin has become a classic of architectural theory. It asks the far-reaching question why, when there are five senses, has one single sense - sight - become so predominant in architectural culture and design?

Informal

Balmond is making the transition from structural engineer working alongside other architects to an architect in his own right. His structural thinking differs from that of others in his field, in its completely innovative conception of the engineer's contribution to architecture.

Cradle to Cradle

A manifesto for a radically different philosophy and practice of manufacture and environmentalism"Reduce, reuse, recycle" urge environmentalists; in other words, do more with less in order to minimize damage. But as this provocative, visionary book argues, this approach perpetuates a one-way, "cradle to grave" manufacturing model that dates to the Industrial Revolution and casts off as much as 90 percent of the materials it uses as waste, much of it toxic.

Absolute Leisure

It is estimated that leisure activities currently account for 35 per cent of our personal consumption expenditures, and up to 9 per cent of our GDP. In the upcoming world of flexible work hours, discount flights to all corners of the earth, and the ability to download any sort of movie, television show or song ever recorded, we have become a society of „leisure aficionados" and pleasure connoisseurs.

Design Like You Give a Damn

The greatest humanitarian challenge we face today is that of providing shelter. The physical design of our homes, neighborhoods and communities shapes every aspect of our live, yet where architects are most desperately needed, they can least be afforded.

Learning From Las Vegas, Revised Edition

Learning from Las Vegas created a healthy controversy on its appearance in 1972, calling for architects to be more receptive to the tastes and values of "common" people and less immodest in their erections of "heroic," self-aggrandizing monuments.This revision includes the full texts of Part I of the original, on the Las Vegas strip, and Part II, "Ugly and Ordinary Architecture, or the Decorated Shed," a generalization from the findings of the first part on symbolism in architecture and the iconography of urban sprawl.

Thinking Architecture

This elegantly designed book contains four essays by Peter Zumthor. It exhibits the essence of Zumthor's ideas in a similar vein as our highly successful Rem Koolhaas: Conversations with Students (see page 11)."The creative act in which a work of architecture comes into being is beyond all historical and technical knowledge.

Atmospheres

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?

Cities For A Small Planet

Nothing else damages the earth's environment more than our cities. As the world's population has grown, our cities have burgeoned, and their impact on the environment worsened. Meanwhile, from the isolated, gated communities within Houston and Los Angeles, to the millions of residents of Bombay living in squalor, the city has failed to serve its ideal function-as the cradle of civilization, the engine of culture, and the inspiration for community and citizenship.

Small, medium, large, extra-large : Office for Metropolitan Architecture, Rem Koolhaas and Bruce Mau

This extraordinary, massive, and mind-boggling 1,300-page book combines essays, manifestos, diaries, fairy tales, travelogues, a cycle of meditations on the contemporary city--and complex illustration--with work produced by Koolhaas' Office for Metropolitan Architecture over the past twenty years. This almost overwhelming accumulation of words and images illuminates the condition of architecture today--its splendors and miseries--exploring and revealing the corrosive effects of politics, context, the economy, and globalization. In some ways, this is the "Medium is the Message" of 1990s architectural discourse: guaranteed to be hugely influential in the coming decades, but grossly misunderstood by those who have not read it. The core arguments it makes about metropolitan architecture--accepting complexity and lack of centralized control--are similar to those of Kevin Kelly's Out of Control: The New Biology of Machines, Social Systems and the Economic World.
