Abstract

The history of glassmaking can be traced back to 3500 BC in Mesopotamia and it is the Romans who first used glass in architecture. With the development of technology glass has become a common material in contemporary architecture. We have glass ceramics, polished wire glass and groove glass, glass tiles etc. With increasingly diversified surface treatments such as enamelling, acid embossing, sandblasting and screen printing, there seem to be endless choices for architectural design.This book introduces various types of glass and through analysis of included projects, images, detailed drawings and informative text, it illustrates the characteristics of glass and its application. It’s a practical reference for architects and other readers alike interested in the application of glass in architectural design.

Abstract

This highly illustrated text brings together two areas which have both grown in popularity in recent years: gridshells and bamboo. Bamboo is a fast-growing, naturally available, renewable resource which is quite strong and lends itself to structural applications. In this unique text, David Rockwood demonstrates the viability of bamboo as a building material and considers the advantages - as well as the challenges - of working with bamboo. Its properties, workability, connections, assembly, erection processes, structural behavior, and final use are explored in detail through a series of design-build experiments and case studies from Hawai'i and Vietnam.

Abstract

"Bamboo has been used as building material for many centuries in all regions in which it grows, especially in Asia, Africa and South America. Today it is gaining in popularity also among Western architects and engineers due to its reputation of a quickly replenishing and therefore sustainable raw material. In addition, its tensile as well as compressive strength, which can compete with those of steel, stone and concrete, make bamboo a very desirable construction material. The range extends from traditional building styles and their modern interpretation to the combination of bamboo with other materials. Frequently, beyond its use for purely construction purposes it also serves as a primary design element. This volume presents contemporary projects that show the impressive versatility of its usage"--Provided by publisher.

Abstract

"SUDU -- the Sustainable Urban Dwelling Unit -- is a full-scale prototype for an affordable two-story house built with local materials and traditional building techniques in Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa. Developed in a collaborative endeavor between the Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building Construction and City Development and ETH Zurich, SUDU ties in with the rich tradition of loam construction while at the same time taking a fresh look at how to adapt this tradition to contemporary needs. The first volume additionally explores the history of Ethiopian architecture, the postcolonial nature of its current construction industry, and the challenges of the country's rapid urbanization. The second volume, a manual with more than 600 detailed drawings and instructions, demonstrates how to build a house, step-by-step, with the most readily available building material -- earth"--Page 4, cover.
