Brick is a fresh, insightful and surprising look at one of the world''s most familiar and popular building materials. From the strange remains of the Ziggurat of Ur dating from 2100 BC, to formidable mills of the industrial revolution, the humble brick has been an architectural staple for centuries. The world''s best architects have explored the qualities of brickwork. Alvar Aalto, Antoni Gaudi, Jørn Utzon, Frank Gehry, and Mies van der Rohe all built with the material, and bricks were integral to Frank Lloyd Wright''s vision for an American vernacular in his Prairie Houses. Lesser-known newcomers have created some equally striking and memorable structures, from the stunning Winery Gantenbein - built by robotic arm û to the audacious Kantana Institute, an unprecedented vision in a Thai rainforest. Brick is a beautiful and informative visual exploration of a material that is often overlooked, and sometimes considered limiting, but is actually full of spectacular potential.

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.

Timberland: The wooden structures of the 21st century. Not so very long ago, some might have considered wood a material of the past, long since replaced by more modern components such as concrete and steel. The truth is radically different. Bolstered by new manufacturing techniques and ecological benefits, wood has seen a fabulous resurgence in contemporary construction. This double-volume survey explores how architects around the world have created and invented with this elementary material. Featuring follies, very large buildings, and ambitious urban renewal schemes, it celebrates the diverse deployment of wood from architects in China, Chile, and everywhere in between. We see how wood can at once transform urban spaces, as in the Metropol Parasol in Seville by Jürgen Mayer H, and allow for sensitive interventions in natural environments, as at the Finnish Forest Research Institute by SARC Architects, or the Termas Geométricas Hot Springs Complex by Germán del Sol.

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

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.

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.

''Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Recover'' is the sustainable guideline that has replaced the öTake, Make, Wasteô attitude of the industrial age. Based on their background at the ETH Zurich and the Future Cities Laboratory in Singapore, the authors provide both a conceptual and practical look into materials and products which use waste as a renewable resource. This book introduces an inventory of current projects and building elements, ranging from marketed products, among them façade panels made of straw and self-healing concrete, to advanced research and development like newspaper, wood or jeans denim used as isolating fibres. Going beyond the mere recycling aspect of reused materials, it looks into innovative concepts of how materials usually regarded as waste can be processed into new construction elements. The products are organized along the manufacturing processes: densified, reconfigured, transformed, designed and cultivated materials. A product directory presents all materials and finishing products.

En smuk fotobog om hovedstadens lys og neonskilte, der sætter stemning på både sommernatten og vintermørket. Det tynde glasrør med sit flimrende lys sætter sig fast i vores hukommelse og tegner vores fortælling om byen. Hvad sker der, hvis Irmahønen en dag stopper med at lægge sine æg over Sortedams Sø? Kan København være København uden hønen, Gajol-manden eller alle de andre neonreklamer, der lyser byen op? Stefan Outzen og Helena Helmer har i mange år været fascineret af neon. De tager dig med på nattevandring i hovedstaden og giver dig den farve­strålende historie om byens lysende kunstværker og reklamer. Bogen fortæller også om elektricitetens sejr over gassen, byens første elværker, den første neonreklame fra 1925, mørklægning under besættelsen og meget mere. Den henvender sig til alle med interesse for Københavns, lysets og elektricitetens historie. Forfatterne ønsker at inspirere til bevarelse af de gamle reklamer og at give plads til flere og nye impulser fra tage, gavle og facader.
