Cambridge's Jacques Heyman provides a thorough and intuitive understanding of masonry structures, such as arch bridges, Greek temples, and Gothic cathedrals. Although his approach is firmly scientific, Heyman does not use complex mathematics. Instead, he introduces the basis of masonry analysis, then considers individual structures, through lucid and informative text. 5 photos. 100 line diagrams. 3 tables. Copyright © Libri GmbH.

The current trend for constructing experimental structures is now an international phenomenon. It has been taken up worldwide by design professionals, researchers, educators and students alike. There exists, however, distinct and significant tendencies within this development that require further investigation. This issue of AD takes on this task by examining one of the most promising trajectories in this area, the rise of intensely local architectures. In his seminal essay of 1983 Kenneth Frampton re-defined Critical Regionalism by calling for an intensely local approach to architectural design. He avoided a nostalgic or backward-looking attitude to regional traditions by placing an emphasis on contemporary construction and design techniques. Today, Frampton's legacy is regaining relevance for a specific body of work in practice and education focused on the construction of experimental structures. How might, though, this approach be further extended by the adoption of informed locally specific non-standard architectures? Could the most current design, production methods and tools be employed in order to respond to the specifics of local sites and settings? Could this ultimately provide the seeds for a compelling and alternative approach to sustainable design? Featured practices include: SHoP, Studio Mumbai, the early Renzo Piano Workshop, Rintala Eggertson and Tyin Tegnestue. Includes works by pioneering integrated educational and research teams: e[ad] Escuela De Arquitectura y Diseno - Pontificia universidad Catolica de Valparaiso, the Scarcity and Creativity Studio in Oslo, the OCEAN Design Research Association and workshops directed by Shin Egashira. Contributors include Barbarar Ascher, Karl Otto Ellefsen, Bijoy Jain, David Jolly Monge, Lisbet Harboe, Christopher Hight, Joakim Hoen, David Leatherbarrow, Mathilde Marengo, Gregg Pasquarelli, Sami Rintala, Søren S.

The great cathedrals and churches of the medieval West continue to awe. How were they built, and why do they remain standing? What did their builders know about what they were doing? These questions have given rise to considerable controversy, which is fully reflected in the papers selected here. The first section of the book is concerned with the medieval builders and their design methods; the second focuses on engineering issues in the context of the infamous collapse of the choir at Beauvais in 1284. The following papers extend the analysis into the 15th century, looking for example at Brunelleschi’s dome for Florence Cathedral, and deal with the often neglected structures of roofs, towers and spires.

History of Construction Cultures Volume 1 contains papers presented at the 7ICCH – Seventh International Congress on Construction History, held at the Lisbon School of Architecture, Portugal, from 12 to 16 July, 2021. The conference has been organized by the Lisbon School of Architecture (FAUL), NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities, the Portuguese Society for Construction History Studies and the University of the Azores. The contributions cover the wide interdisciplinary spectrum of Construction History and consist on the most recent advances in theory and practical case studies analysis, following themes such as: - epistemological issues; - building actors; - building materials; - building machines, tools and equipment; - construction processes; - building services and techniques ; -structural theory and analysis ; - political, social and economic aspects; - knowledge transfer and cultural translation of construction cultures. Furthermore, papers presented at thematic sessions aim at covering important problematics, historical periods and different regions of the globe, opening new directions for Construction History research. We are what we build and how we build; thus, the study of Construction History is now more than ever at the centre of current debates as to the shape of a sustainable future for humankind. Therefore, History of Construction Cultures is a critical and indispensable work to expand our understanding of the ways in which everyday building activities have been perceived and experienced in different cultures, from ancient times to our century and all over the world.

FABRICATE is an international peer reviewed conference that takes place every three years with a supporting publication on the theme of Digital Fabrication. Discussing the progressive integration of digital design with manufacturing processes, and its impact on design and making in the 21st century, FABRICATE brings together pioneers in design and making within architecture, construction, engineering, manufacturing, materials technology and computation. Discussion on key themes includes: how digital fabrication technologies are enabling new creative and construction opportunities from component to building scales, the difficult gap that exists between digital modelling and its realisation, material performance and manipulation, off-site and on-site construction, interdisciplinary education, economic and sustainable contexts. FABRICATE features cutting-edge built work from both academia and practice, making it a unique event that attracts delegates from all over the world. FABRICATE 2011, 2014 and 2017 are now all available to download free from UCL Press.

This book will be of interest to everyone involved in the repair, maintenance and refurbishment of traditional buildings. Its purpose is to promote the successful structural repair of masonry, timber and unfired earth. The book begins by explaining how traditional structures work and how they are affected by the behaviour of the soil that supports them. It goes on to explain how the structural design of buildings has to cope with uncertainty. Techniques for doing so are well established for new buildings, but the viewpoint changes when existing buildings need to be repaired or refurbished. The most common sources of structural damage are listed. The more serious and progressive ones are described in detail, as an aid to diagnosis and prognosis. An understanding of prognosis enables repairers to decide whether urgent intervention is necessary or whether the problem can be allowed to run its course. A straightforward method is proposed for arriving at the most suitable remedy. Several typical repairs are illustrated. The book covers many allied topics, including the principles of conservation, health and safety and preventative maintenance. A chapter is devoted to the special needs of insured perils.
