"Thinking and working at different scales is at the core of the architecture. But how much of that design decision must be made? At what time it is useful to change the scale? What can, what should be displayed in a scaled architectural drawings? And how it is possible that this drawing is clear, legible, yet an aesthetic desire? The architectural drawing is not least a means of communication. It contains information that is relevant to different addressees. Choosing the right scale determines whether the client or the craftsman understands what is meant. Given the numerous possibilities of CAD gets the goal, to transport their own ideas clearly and unambiguously, sometimes out of sight. Ansgar and Benedikt Schulz provide guidance and lead the architectural drawing exemplarily back to its original purpose: to provide excellent buildings" -- Publicaciones Arquitectura y Arte.

The world and the people living in it are increasingly and rapidly being affected by environmental and technological changes. It is imperative that the design profession addresses these developments with a new way of thinking. This book points the way for the design of interiors in this newly complex world and will be indispensable for students, practitioners and theoreticians. The book is divided into four chapters that explore aspects of the human experience of the interior, from man’s earliest search for shelter to an outline of past and current thinking on design, psychology and well-being. An epilogue looks at such future concerns as population growth and sustainability and suggests how the design profession can confront these challenges. Rethinking Design and Interiors is a fascinating exploration of how art and science can come together for the benefit of those who inhabit the built environment.

This volume provides an overview of the fast-developing field of tidal disruption events. For several decades, astronomers speculated that a hapless star could wander too close to a massive black hole and be torn apart by tidal forces. Yet it is only with the recent advent of wide-field transient surveys that such events have been detected. Written by a team of prominent researchers, the chapters detail the discoveries made so far in this burgeoning field of study across the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from gamma-rays through X-rays, ultra-violet, optical, infrared, and radio. In addition, they show how tidal disruption events can be used to study the properties of otherwise undetectable supermassive black holes; the populations and dynamics of stars in galactic nuclei; the physics of black hole accretion, including the potential to detect relativistic effects near a SMBH; and the physics of (radio) jet formation and evolution in a pristine environment. Finally, the book outlines important outstanding questions about TDEs. With more than 100 color images, the volume will be useful to researchers and others interested in learning more about this promising area of astrophysics.

For all those interested in the relationship between ideas and the built environment, John Onians provides a lively illustrated account of the range of meanings that Western culture has assigned to the Classical orders. Onians shows that during the 2,000 years from their first appearance in ancient Greece through their codification in Renaissance Italy, the orders--the columns and capitals known as Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, Tuscan, and Composite--were made to serve expressive purposes, engaging the viewer in a continuing visual dialogue.

Joseph Rykwert is one of the major architectural historians of this century, whosefull humanistic understanding of architecture and its historical significance is unrivaled. TheDancing Column is certain to be his most controversial and challenging work to date. A decade inpreparation, it is a deeply erudite, clearly written, and wide-ranging deconstruction of the systemof column and beam known as the "orders of architecture," tracing the powerful and persistentanalogy between columns and/or buildings and the human body.The body-column metaphor is as old asarchitectural thought, informing the works of Vitruvius, Alberti, and many later writers; but TheDancing Column is the first comprehensive treatment to do this huge subject full justice. Itprovides a new critical examination of the way the classical orders, which have dominated Westernarchitecture for nearly three millennia, were first formulated. Rykwert opens with a review of theirconsequence for the leading architects of the twen tieth century, and then traces ideas related tothem in accounts of sacred antiquity and in scientific doctrines of humor and character.Thebody-column metaphor is traced in archaeological material from Egypt, Asia Minor, and the Levant, aswell as from Greece, drawing on recent accounts by hi storians of Greek religion and society as wellas the latest discoveries of archaeologists. Perhaps most important, Rykwert reexamines itssignificance for the formation of any theoretical view of architecture.Chapters cover an astonishingbreadth of material, including the notions of a set number and a proportional as well as anornamental rule of the orders; the theological-philosophical interpretatio Christiana of antiquityon which the domination of the orders relied; the astrological and geometrical canon of the humanfigure; gender and column; the body as a constantly refashioned cultural product; the Greek templebuilding and the nature of cu

Uniting a team of international and interdisciplinary scholars, this volume considers the views of early twentieth-century European thinkers on the creation, dissemination and management of publicly available information. Interdisciplinary in perspective, the volume reflects the nature of the thinkers discussed, including Otto Neurath, Patrick Geddes, the English Fabians, Paul Otlet, Wilhelm Ostwald and H. G. Wells. The work also charts the interest since the latter part of the nineteenth century in finding new ways to think about and to manage the growing body of available information in order to achieve aims such as the advancement of Western civilization, the alleviation of inequalities across classes and countries, and the promotion of peaceful coexistence between nations. In doing so, the contributors provide a novel historical context for assessing widely-held assumptions about today's globalized, 'post modern' information society. This volume will interest all who are curious about the creation of a modern networked information society.

Download Vitruvius Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

A historical study of Vitruvius's De architectura, showing that his purpose in writing "the whole body of architecture" was shaped by the imperial Roman project of world domination. Vitruvius's De architectura is the only major work on architecture to survive from classical antiquity, and until the eighteenth century it was the text to which all other architectural treatises referred. While European classicists have focused on the factual truth of the text itself, English-speaking architects and architectural theorists have viewed it as a timeless source of valuable metaphors. Departing from both perspectives, Indra Kagis McEwen examines the work's meaning and significance in its own time. Vitruvius dedicated De architectura to his patron Augustus Caesar, the first Roman emperor, whose rise to power inspired its composition near the end of the first century B.C. McEwen argues that the imperial project of world dominion shaped Vitruvius's purpose in writing what he calls "the whole body of architecture." Specifically, Vitruvius's aim was to present his discipline as the means for making the emperor's body congruent with the imagined body of the world he would rule. Each of the book's four chapters treats a different Vitruvian "body." Chapter 1, "The Angelic Body," deals with the book as a book, in terms of contemporary events and thought, particularly Stoicism and Stoic theories of language. Chapter 2, "The Herculean Body," addresses the book's and its author's relation to Augustus, whose double Vitruvius means the architect to be. Chapter 3, "The Body Beautiful," discusses the relation of proportion and geometry to architectural beauty and the role of beauty in forging the new world order. Finally, Chapter 4, "The Body of the King," explores the nature and unprecedented extent of Augustan building programs. Included is an examination of the famous statue of Augustus from Prima Porta, sculpted soon after the appearance of De architectura.

This fascinating book offers a new perspective on the architectural history of the Second World War, which in previous accounts has most often been viewed as a hiatus between peaceful periods of production. Jean-Louis Cohen contends instead that during the years between the bombings of Guernica in 1937 and of Hiroshima in 1945, specific advances were fundamental to the process of modernization and led to the definitive supremacy of modernism in architecture. Centering the discussion on ten main themes, the author investigates various aspects of architecture's mobilization in the war years, as well as the trajectories of individual architects. He analyzes architectural developments worldwide and takes into account each of the major participants in the war, including the United States, Japan, Great Britain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, and the Soviet Union. The book not only focuses on plans, buildings, and technological inventions but also examines the many types of visual representation used for war purposes, enhanced by a rich array of more than 300 illustrations.
