Three South Asian popular manuals on dwelling construction and associated rites appear as part of this work.< Less
VISUAL EF9ECTS | Architecture and the Chess Game of Form & Story By JEF7REY HILDNER

"Architecture is a chess game of Form & Story waged on the battlefield of a building and its site." —Jef7rey Hildner, Visual Ef9ects A GREAT BUILDING presents more than a... More > breathtaking expression of the aesthetics of materials, space, and light—more than a stunning display of Abstract Form. Like architecture since the dawn of time, a great building tells a Symbolic Story. The cinematic metaphor of chess helps us see how Form & Story can join forces through "collaborative conflict," fraught with peril, to create a heart pounding work of art. In a building, everything must be formed, but a great building, like a great movie, presents more than Form, more than Visual Effects. A great building presents Visual Ef9ects. That "9" stands for Story. Truth. My book ​presents a manifesto. Build beautiful. Build the truth. Visual Ef9ects springs from the talk I gave in 2016 for the Symposium on Formalism at the Syracuse University School of Architecture Program in Florence. (Cover C—"Kind of Blue")< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
Carl Boetticher, Gottfried Semper, and Heinrich Woelfflin: a sketch of various investigations on the nature of "Tectonic" in nineteenth-century architectural theory. The essay sketches the... More > shifting understanding of the tectonic in the architectural theories of Carl Boetticher, Gottfried Semper, and Heinrich Woelfflin. The essay argues that the axiomatic definition of the tectonic as "Poetics of Construction", as it has been advocated in recent decades, is focusing too one-sidedly on architecture's tangible materiality and undermines the capability of architecture to contain representational values and to hold civilizing meaning.< Less
Computerizing an Architectural Design Process: Toward the Development of Unique Variations for the American Home By Jeremy Roh
eBook (PDF): $0.00

More > around you, the way that you have always intended to live your life, and reflect your one-of-a-kind personality. You should not have to fit your life into a home forced on you by market trends or the only floor plan options offered by homebuilders. A handful of architects are now experimenting with new technologies and design strategies to gain more influence within the American housing industry. By introducing new concepts in computerized client interation and configuration design tools, a broader economic spectrum of society will have access to customized design. The ensuing graduate thesis investigates precedents in past housing strategies, theories and experiments in computational design, construction methods, ideas in preference collection, and the development of prototype software applications.< Less

Este libro es una compilación de los distintos ensayos que los alumnos de la asignatura (Grado en Arquitectura, IE University) han realizado a lo largo del primer semestre del curso 2011/2012.... More > Los textos no han sido editados, y mantienen su diseño original así como su estilo y personalidad propios. Con sus errores y aciertos, son el testimonio de una aproximación al pensamiento sobre la arquitectura en palabras e imágenes, al pensamiento reflexivo pero especialmente al pensamiento tentativo. Una primera aproximación, no exenta de dudas, y sin embargo creo que muy valiosa. Al reunirlos juntos se aprecian su heterogeneidad, sus divergencias, pero también, y especialmente, la unidad de las distintas búsquedas personales: el esfuerzo por lograr una cierta mirada.< Less
[Field Theory] the study of lattice systems created through modular paneling transcending multiple scales By Kelly Drewry
eBook (PDF): $0.99

The analytical study of a pure geometry creates spaces and forms... More > at every scale and in every orientation. These patterns can be layed out in modular panels, whether rotated, overlayed, skewed, or mirrored, in order to create architectural design decisions in plan, section, or elevation. Since the proportions of the module grow exponentially, possibilities are endless in terms of project type and scale. Decisions are made at multiple scales, starting with the human and working up to the building scale, as well as the realm of possibilities that fall in between. The module is acting as a matrix which regulates the articulation of every architectural element. It creates order and reason for decision making, whether it be the layout for a city’s master plan or a small home.< Less
