In addition to its economic and contractual dimension, it is also an essential tool for translating design quality into built quality. This volume presents various ways to put construction works out to tender. In addition, it explains in practical terms how to describe construction work and how to prepare all of the documentation required for a complete invitation to tender. Subjects: Allocating construction work; Different ways to specify construction work; The structure of a work specification; Quantity determination; Using invitations to tender to realize plan quality.

Concrete is an all-around talent, already in use in ancient Rome and since the second half of the 20th century one of the most important building materials. After a period of excess and architectural faux pas a renaissance of ex - posed concrete began in the 1990s. Whether the design would expressive-opulent or minimalistic-clear, the con - stant advance of technological developments, especially sophisticated new types of concrete, made possible phenomenal, previously unattainable constructions in high design quality. This volume provides an overview of contemporary real - ized projects. Their selection presents the many faces of concrete and the breadth of design possibilities of this building material. Furthermore, excursuses are dedicated to the role of concrete in product design.

Liquid stone - The charm of concrete architecture today. Concrete? That characterless stuff of parking lots or Communist tower blocks, right? Well, yes. And no. Concrete is actually a name applied to a remarkably wide range of building substances, and, when properly handled, is one of the noble materials of contemporary architecture. A kind of liquid stone at the outset, it is malleable, durable, and capable of prodigious feats of engineering. This two-volume book highlights the best work done in concrete of recent years. It includes such stars as Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, and Steven Holl, but also surprising new architects like the Russians SPEECH, and rising stars of the international scene like Rudy Ricciotti from France, as well as artists such as James Turrell, who turned the famous concrete spiral of Frank Lloyd Wright s Guggenheim in New York into the setting of one of his most remarkable pieces.

In stock: In stock

In Why You Can Build It Like That, John Zukowsky examines buildings from the past half century or so that pushed the boundaries of what was architecturally acceptable when they were built. 100 striking international examples of modern architecture are categorized into thematic chapters that reflect form as well as society. Zukowsky explores the history of these buildings and their makers, presenting relevant biographical factors and socio-cultural influences that impacted on the distinctive designs. The book includes the works of heroic early modernist architects such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright, alongside long-established architectural firms such as Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. It also features mavericks of the past and present Bruce Goff, Shin Takamatsu and Shigeru Ban and singular architectural wonders that reflect their own times. Readers will find out why all the featured buildings look the way they do, and why they were created when and where they were. Zukowskys kind.

Blob!: Round Shapes, Fluid Forms

In stock: In stock

The term ''Blob Architecture'' was first used in 1995 by Greg Lynn to describe biomorphic buildings, whose complex forms were created with the help of computers. Initially only used to describe organic, rounded objects ''Blobitecture'' today comprises and inspires many variations: from the classic, computer-generated blob to the experimenting with new, sprawling shapes, up to the combination with deconstructive elements or parametric architecture. On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of blob architecture, this volume features the best contemporary projects and provides an extensive survey of current developments. Buildings from all around the world are presented, created by famous architects and promising newcomers and ranging from large-scale projects to temporary installations. They all have one thing in common - even after twenty years blob architecture remains as freshly interesting and promising as ever.

Whether you are a student considering a career in civil engineering and transportation planning, a public official interested in the future of infrastructure, or a person who simply cares about bridges, this book offers an accessible and illustrated introduction to the most beloved feature of our built environment. Learn about engineering basics: the forces that bridges must resist to stay aloft and the principles by which engineers decide which types of bridges make sense at which sites. Find out how engineers protect bridges from their greatest threatsùthe earthquakes, floods, and other hazards that can cause catastrophic damage. Moving from engineering to planning, learn how we decide whether a bridge is worth building in the first place, learn about controversial features of cost-benefit analysis, and about the transportation models by which planners forecast bridge effects on traffic patterns.

Physically, black is defined as an (almost) complete absorption of all frequencies of light; it describes the impression of color when visual stimuli are missing. In many cultural contexts of the past and present, this ''uncolored'' color holds a special place: regardless of context, this special color is always met with great respect. This is also true for the current and intense interaction of architects and designers with the color black. Black buildings seem majestic, filled with a special aura, and dominant, but they can also emphasize their surroundings precisely because of their lack of color. The projects presented in this volume show the great variety of approaches by the contemporary building culture to this fascinating physical and cultural phenomenon.

Plastics Now: On Architecture''s Relationship to a Continuously Emerging Material

Billie Faircloth

In stock: In stock

Plastics Now addresses one primary question: why do we build with plastics the way that we do? For decades, plastics have been described over and over again as "the future," yet we still do not know precisely what to do with them. Billie Faircloth argues that this inertia is due to plasticsÆ indecipherability, which has prevented them from becoming fully known. The author tracks the process by which plastics became defined as a class of building materials. Drawing on original data from industry press, original timelines, hundreds of historical and contemporary images, advertisements dating to the 1940s, and technical data, this unconventional book explores the emergence of plastics as a building material and presents new findings. Plastics Now takes a provocative approach that calls on architects to participate in the redefinition of plastics for our time. This is essential reading for professional architects and architecture students to engage with our shared history with the plastics industry.

Shukhov is now regarded as a pioneer of lightweight construction and as one of the leading proponents of Russian industrial design. However, some areas still require further investigation, including: The international networks that developed the prevailing construction materials and techniques used in Russia in the late techniques used in Russia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Engineering training programs and the exchange of knowledge between Russia and Europe Questions concerning the evolution of theory and the exchange of knowledge including: The relationship between theory and practice; the exchange of ideas, materials and technology between the mechanical engineering and construction sectors; and the development of materials and contemporary theory on support structures. Historic calculation and planning methods, historic building and assembly processes. The proponents,

Timber: the old raw material and building material returns.There are many reasons today for building with wood and there are great advantages over conventional designs. Wood is not only a renewable building material that helps reduce the levels of CO2 and is hence good for climate change, but, due to modern computing and manufacturing processes, it can also be used for a variety of construction tasks. Wood possesses excellent qualities for both construction and indoor climate control, and can easily be combined with other common building materials. Based on 24 international projects, the book provides an overview of the range of possibilities in wood construction today. Texts, images, and plans document the architectural and constructive qualities of contemporary timber structures from the conceptual design to the structure in detail.
