Architectural Integration and Design of Solar Thermal Systems

Although solar thermal systems are technologically mature and cost effective, they have not yet been sufficiently used in building design to play an adequate role in the reduction of fossil fuel consumption. One main hindrance to adoption is the generally low architectural design quality of the building integration of these thermal systems. As confirmed by the example of photovoltaics, improvement of the architectural quality of building integrated systems can increase the use of a solar technology even more than price reductions or technical advances. Solar thermal collectors have to be mounted very close to the point of consumption - i.e., on the building itself - which stresses the urgency of the architectural integration issue. Starting from a definition of architectural integration quality and related criteria, this book is intended to help both architects and manufacturers improve their design work.

Metals, as surface or structure, play a role in nearly every strain of modern architecture. Non-architectural metals in the form of automobiles and hard goods are the engines of our sprawling cities. Known for superior strength, metals allow us to build higher and span greater distances. However, they can also be soft, forgiving, and ethereal. In Post-Ductility, an interdisciplinary group of architects, historians, theorists, and engineers collectively explores the past, present, and future possibilities of this essential building material. The first book to look comprehensively at innovations and advancements in metal engineering and architecture, Post-Ductility includes works and essays by contemporary architects, engineers, and educators such as Mark Wigley, Sylvia Lavin, José Rafael Moneo, Steven Holl, Rory McGowan, and Paola Antonelli.

There are a dizzying array of new tools and methods available to today''s architects. From high-powered computer programs to state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and complex building materials, every new technology challenges architects to reconcile it with a building''s design and detailing. Details, Technology, and Form, the third volume in the ongoing AsBuilt series, features twenty-five technologically awe-inspiring projects built in the past three years. Each project is explored in detail through technical drawings, diagrams, and full-color photographs of the finished building, as well as work-in-progress material that illustrates fabrication and assembly. U.S. and Canadian projects range from an office building featuring a one-hundred-foot cantilever on its upper level supported by sixteen-foot-deep trusses to a house designed to float in the event of flooding.

Affordable building lots in central locations in the large cities and metropolises are rare. When there are no available gaps in the urban structure, attic conversions and extensions are an interesting and favored form of redensification. This volume explores approximately 60 attic projects, as extensions, conversions, or new construction, which utilize the previously used storage space for new use. Existing buildings are expanded upwards and adapted to the contemporary desires and demands of their use. Some constitute a homogenous extension of the existing facade and augment the view in a barely noticeable way. Others use the design freedom above the eave height in order to create a 21st century architecture which contrasts with the historical building substance.

Today, careful energy planning and design has become an integral component of every building task. This third volume of the SCALE series, Heat | Cool, picks up at precisely this point, providing strategies for an energetically sensible and suitable approach to building conditioning as well as its design and constructional integration. In addition to building and facilities services, it places special emphasis on construction and design measures. How much the building itself can achieve in the context of the given climatic, topographical, and town planning framework conditions and to what extent additional installations are required for conditioning, which construction measures are appropriate for which types of tasks within a sustainable and integrated planning approach - all of these topics are discussed on the basis of project examples.

Protection has always been the most genuine function of architecture. In the context of global warming one of the most needed type of protection is from and against the sun. This necessity has led to an impressive creative outburst of amazing technological developments for all kinds of roofs without walls. These come in all forms and sizes, in a wide variety of materials concrete, fabrics, fiberglass, wood or plants, to name a few. This volume features serial productions as well as individ - ual designs. These shadow-providing devices range from elegant sun blinds and canopies, to fancy pergolas and luxury tents as well as small pavilions in public parks, wide covered piazzas, and even entire buildings shielded by independent overlapping roofs. With texts, facts, drawings and photos the presentation of the projects focusses on the design as well as on the constructive aspects and technical features.

Textile architecture has been captivating humanity for many centuries. In recent years and decades, the emergence of innovative materials has created new opportunities to utilize this fascinating material in the fields of architecture, construction, and interiors. Textiles derive their fascination from the special forms these fabric structures make possible and from their unusual character as soft materials. Together with their functional and structural properties, they possess a range of capabilities equally suitable forspectacular and everyday building tasks. This book deals with technical textiles in three sections: in the first chapter, the material is introduced with its specific properties; the second chapter deals with its uses in the areas of architecture, textile facades, solar protection, and interior design, with special attention to finishing techniques and construction principles. The third chapter illustrates the various fields of application with a selection of 20 built projects.
