Experimental Architecture by Jacobo Krauel,Amber Ockrassa Pdf

"This volume surveys houses that defy expectations and explode the notion of what constitutes "experimental" in residential architecture. The buildings selected for this book have little in common--they come from different cities across the globe, they represent the work of different architect often with vastly different outlooks, and they break the mold of what the notion of a "house" is. The only thing that unifes the twenty-nine projects depicted in this book is that each radically defies convention in some new way."--Book jacket.

Experimental Architecture by Rachel Armstrong Pdf

In this ground-breaking book, the first to provide an overview of the theory and practice of experimental architecture, Rachel Armstrong explores how interdisciplinary, design-led research practices are beginning to redefine the possibilities of architecture as a profession. Drawing on experts from disciplines as varied as information technology, mathematics, poetry, graphic design, scenography, bacteriology, marine applied science and robotics, Professor Armstrong delineates original, cutting-edge architectural experiments through essays, quotes, poetry, equations and stories. Written by an acknowledged pioneer of architectural experiment, this visionary book is ideal for students and researchers wishing to engage in experimental, practice-based architectural and artistic research. It introduces radical new ideas about architecture and provides ideas and inspiration which students and researchers can apply in their own work and proposals, while practitioners can draw on it to transform their creative assumptions and develop thereby a distinctive "edge" to stand out in a highly competitive profession.

Experimental Diagrams in Architecture by Lidia Gasperoni Pdf

Experimental Diagrams: Presenting New Practices The diagram form of representation has become a standard in architecture for some years now. This third book on the subject follows two successful titles. It builds a bridge to diagrams as experimental practices. The contributions critically delineate diagrammatic behaviours in the history of architecture, present the design practices of offices such as AZPML and MVRDV, take the medium to its extreme consequences, and outline future trajectories.

Experimental Architecture in Los Angeles by Aaron Betsky,John Chase,Leon Whiteson Pdf

"Experimental Architecture in Los Angeles presents, for the first time, the recent work of twenty-two of the most innovative, creative, and challenging young architects on the West Coast of the United States. Each architect, in one way or another, is the spiritual child of Frank Gehry and of the second generation of California architects, such as Morphosis and Eric Owen Moss, who followed in his footsteps. Gehry expresses his support for this third generation of architects in his introduction to this volume." "Each architect or firm--among them Michele Saee, AKS Runo, Josh Schweitzer, Guthrie + Buresh, Koning Eizenberg, and COA--is presented in an individual chapter with lavish illustrations accompanied by a brief outline and analysis of the work. Three critical essays, each addressing a different aspect of these architects' relationship to the West Coast, and to Los Angeles in particular, make this volume an indispensable guide to the latest developments in one of architecture's most exciting centers of activity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Israel as a Modern Architectural Experimental Lab, 1948-1978 by Inbal Ben-Asher Gitler,Anat Geva Pdf

This collection discusses the innovative and experimental architecture of Israel during its first three decades following the nation's establishment in 1948. Written by leading researchers, the volume highlights new perspectives on the topic, discussing the inception, modernization, and habitation of historic and lesser-researched areas alike in its interrogation. Inbal Ben-Asher Gitler and Anat Geva show how Israeli nation building, in its cultural, political, and historical contexts, constituted an exceptional experiment in modern architecture. Examples include modern experiments in mass housing design; public architecture such as exhibition spaces, youth villages, and synagogues; a necessary consideration of climate in modern architectural experiments; and the exportation of Israeli modern architecture to other countries.

Pedagogical Experiments in Architecture for a Changing Climate by Tülay Atak,Luis Callejas,Jonathan A. Scelsa,Jørgen Johan Tandberg Pdf

This book presents a series of pedagogical experiments translating climate science, environmental humanities, material research, ecological practices into the architectural curriculum. Balancing the science and humanities, it exposes recent pedagogical experiments from renown educators, while also interrogating a designer’s agency between science and speculation in the face of climate uncertainty. The teaching experiments are presented across four sections: Abstraction, Organization, Building, and Narrative, exposing core parts of an architect’s education and how educators can simultaneously provide fundamental skills and constructive literacy while instigating environmental sensibilities. Chapters cover issues such as an unstable hydrosphere, water infrastructure, remediating materials, methods of disassembly and adaptive reuse, as well as constructing new aesthetic categories of climate change, and implementing oral histories of construction, among many others. Written and edited by expert design educators actively engaged in experimenting in new forms of pedagogy, this book will be of great use to architecture instructors at all levels looking to renew their teaching practices to more directly address the climate emergency. It will also appeal to those academics across the built environment interested in the ways design can affect and adapt to climate change.

Soft Living Architecture by Rachel Armstrong Pdf

Soft Living Architecture explores the invention of new architectures based on living processes. It crafts a unique intersection between two fast-developing disciplines: biomimicry and biodesign in architecture, and bioinformatics and natural computing in the natural sciences. This is the first book to examine both the theory and methodology of architecture and design working directly with the natural world. It explores a range of approaches from the use of life-like systems in building design to the employment of actual growing and living cell and tissue cultures as architectural materials - creating architecture that can change, learn and grow with us. The use of 'living architecture' is cutting-edge and speculative, yet it is also inspiring a growing number of designers worldwide to adopt alternative perspectives on sustainability and environmental design. The book examines the ethical and theoretical issues arising alongside case-studies of experimental practice, to explore what we mean by 'natural' in the Anthropocene, and raise deep questions about the nature of design and the design of nature. This provocative and at times controversial book shows why it will become ever more necessary to embrace living processes in architecture if we are to thrive in a sustainable future.

The Experimental Zone by Séverine Marguin,Friedrich Schmidgall,Henrike Rabe Pdf

Experimental Zone documents a remarkable experiment in spatial research at the interdisciplinary laboratory Image Knowledge Gestaltung at the Humboldt University of Berlin. Every two months, for four years, researchers reconfigured a 350-square meter workspace for forty scientists. The design-based collaborative experiment's focus was on the interrelation of space and knowledge production: What spatial qualities are required by interdisciplinary teams for their research work? With some 300 striking and straightforward graphics, Experimental Zone presents the findings of the experiment. It highlights the spatial conditions under which individual and collaborative research unfold, overlap, or merge and reveals the characteristics of an architecture that fosters interdisciplinary. The experiment's innovative interdisciplinary approach is also reflected in the book's design, with each of the five chapters and the comprehensive visual material reflecting publishing traditions in design, architecture, and the humanities.

Experimental Slips and Human Error by Bernard J. Baars Pdf

Whereas most humans spend their time trying to get things right, psycholo gists are perversely dedicated to error. Errors are extensively used to in vestigate perception, memory, and performance; some clinicians study errors like tea leaves for clues to unconscious motives; and this volume presents the work of researchers who, in an excess of perversity, actually cause people to make predictable errors in speech and action. Some reasons for this oddity are clear. Errors seem to stand at the nexus of many deep-psychological questions. The very concept of error presupposes a goal or criterion by comparison to which an error is an error; and goals bring in the foundation issues of control, motivation, and volition (Baars, 1987, 1988; Wiener, 1961). Errors serve to measure the quality of performance in learning, in expert knowledge, and in brain damage and other dysfunctional states; and by surprising us, they often call attention to phenomena we might otherwise take for granted. Errors also seem to reveal the "natural joints" in perception, language, memory, and problem solving-revealing units that may otherwise be invisible (e. g. , MacKay, 1981; Miller, 1956; Newell & Simon, 1972; Treisman & Gelade, 1980).
