Reciprocal Frame Architecture
Publisher: Architectural Press | ISBN: 0750682639 | edition 2008 | PDF | 208 pages | 15,8 mb

In structural terms reciprocal frame structures are 'three dimensional assemblies of mutually supporting beams'. But behind this definition lie some breathtakingly beautiful and complex structures at the heart of buildings both ancient and modern. This new book explores the principles of these apparently simple structures and demonstrates how they can be used in the context of a modern building.

Toward a Simpler Way of Life: The Arts and Crafts Architects of California
Publisher: University of California Press | ISBN: 0520209168 | edition 1997 | CHM | 302 pages | 15,8 mb

This book celebrates one of the richest and most enduring themes in American architectureCalifornia's Arts and Crafts Movement. Echoing the writings of Helen Hunt Jackson, Charles F. Lummis, and Charles Keeler, this movement represented a retreat into a quieter place from the materialism of American society. Anti-commercial, anti-modern, Arts and Crafts practitioners drew on the decorative schemes of English Tudor, Swiss chalet, Japanese temple, and Spanish mission, evoking an earlier time before modern industry and technology intruded. And if only one word is used to describe virtually every Arts and Crafts house in California, that word is "woodsy": wood shingles outside, wood paneling inside, a wood fire burning in the homey, welcoming fireplace. Most chapters in this impressive and very readable book focus on one building by a particular architect or designer and illustrate that person's development and influences. Familiar architects such as Bernard Maybeck, Charles and Henry Greene, John Galen Howard, and Julia Morgan are here, but so too are less well- known names who were a vibrant part of the Arts and Crafts Movement.

Beyond Description: Singapore Space Historicity

Beyond Description: Singapore Space Historicity
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415299829 | edition 2004 | PDF | 240 pages | 10,7 mb

Beyond Description explores the history and architecture of Singapore. It argues that neither history nor architecture can be fruitfully examined without reference to the other. For this reason, aspects of urban life will always be beyond description, yet these aspects are what most call for analysis. On this premise, the book examines Singapore’s built environment by assessing how its past as a colonial port relates to its present as a global hub and how these inform its possible futures. The chapters complicate existing assumptions about global urbanism, post-colonialism and architectural theory from a dedicated interdisciplinary perspective.

German Architecture for a Mass Audience
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415236541 | edition 2000 | PDF | 192 pages | 12,2 mb

This book vividly illustrates the ways in which buildings designed by many of Germany's most celebrated twentieth-century architects, were embedded in widely held beliefs about the power of architecture to influence society. German Architecture for a Mass Audience also demonstrates the way in which these modernists ideas have been challenged and transformed, most recently in the rebuilding of central Berlin.

Unknown Crusader Castles

Unknown Crusader Castles
Publisher: Hambledon & London | ISBN: 1852852615 | edition 2003 | PDF | 460 pages | 26,3 mb

The capture of Jerusalem by the First Crusade in 1099 signalled the beginning of an armed struggle in Palestine and throughout the Eastern Mediterranean which lasted until the fifteenth century. It was a war dominated by the building, securing and besieging of castles rather than by pitched battles. Kristian Molin covers the military history of the crusades on a wider geographical scale than previous historians, taking in Armenia, Cyprus and Greece as well as the Holy Land. He also shows the role of castles as administrative, judicial and social centres in times of peace as well as in war. Unknown Crusader Castles provides a fresh perspective on the history of the crusades.
Images of the Street: Planning, Identity and Control in Public Space

Images of the Street: Planning, Identity and Control in Public Space
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415154405 | edition 1998 | PDF | 304 pages | 12,1 mb

Streets are the terrain of social encounters and political protest, sites of domination and resistance, places of pleasure and anxiety. The essays in Images of the Street explore how we imagine, create, experience, interact with and naturally transform the street. Using case studies of cities including New York, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Toronto and Vancouver, the contributors subject the street to sustained critical scrutiny. The essays examine the interplay between politics and planning, how social identities are shaped by the use of the street, and how these identities are represented in fiction and in films such as Independence Day, Twelve Monkeys, and The Fisherking, and how social life is increasingly regulated both directly by agencies such as the police, and indirectly through architecture and urban design. This book enriches and extends our understanding of the making and meaning of a key urban space.
Reinforced Concrete and the Modernization of American Building, 1900-1930

Reinforced Concrete and the Modernization of American Building, 1900-1930
Publisher: The Johns Hopkins University Press | ISBN: 080186559X | edition 2001 | PDF | 272 pages | 12,8 mb

Examining the proliferation of reinforced-concrete construction in the United States after 1900, historian Amy E. Slaton considers how scientific approaches and occupations displaced traditionally skilled labor. The technology of concrete buildings—little studied by historians of engineering, architecture, or industry—offers a remarkable case study in the modernization of American production. The use of concrete brought to construction the new procedures and priorities of mass production. These included a comprehensive application of science to commercial enterprise and vast redistributions of skills, opportunities, credit, and risk in the workplace. Reinforced concrete also changed the American landscape as building buyers embraced the architectural uniformity and simplicity to which the technology was best suited.
