"Twenty architects explored possible developments for the lot neighboring the Schindler House, a revolutionary architectural landmark located in West Hollywood, California. Their visionary ideas are combined in this book to uniquely demonstrate contemporary avant-garde architecture in an unusual line-up. Responding to the challenge that 'It is the architect's duty to offer resistance', [this book] explores the field of tension surrounding architecture, urbanism, and preservation today. It poses the following questions: Is a landmark such as the Schindler House singular, or is it tied to a complex network of relations and urban situations? Is context important to a landmark's intrinsic meaning? How do we measure the social significance of unparalleled historic works of architecture? To what degree do landmarks rely on their surrounding conditions?"--Back cover.

Amid climatic changes linked to global warming, ongoing changes in land-use patterns, and growing international concern with the environment it is increasingly important to understand the potential impact of these changes on the environment. Rainfall-runoff modeling is an important predictor of that impact. This book introduces rainfall-runoff models that have been developed over the past 24-30 years, giving examples of their practical applications. It provides a summary of available techniques for rainfall modeling based upon the most recent research, but in a way that serves as a primer for the subject. Provides an overview of how catchment rainfall-runoff systems work A history of rainfall-runoff models Examples of models can be downloaded over the Internet Looks at uncertainty in model prediction

This powerful visual resource combines hundreds of illustrationsfrom Architectural Graphic Standards with corresponding buildingmaterial performance and specification information from AIA'sMASTERSPEC, published by ARCOM. Use this book during the schematicand design development phases of a project and as an indispensableaid for product selection and specification. Essential for architects, interior designers, and buildingdesigners, this vital reference provides information to makeinformed decisions about specific design goals, such asaffordability, environmental friendliness, durability, fireresistance, and esthetic success. Features include: * Unique source of independent, in-depth building productperformance information-the one source that gives you reliablebuilding product information before you consult withmanufacturers * Covers a full range of standard finish materials and includesselection criteria, details, typical product sizes, andinstallation and maintenance data * Provides current standards based on research by government,association, and independent testing organizations as well as theinput of experienced architects and specifiers "Architectural Graphic Standards has served the design communityfor decades as a virtual 'bible' for architectural detailing.MASTERSPEC Evaluations have long comprised one of the bestresources available for building product selection andspecification.

For most of his career, architect Mario Gandelsonas has been exploring the American city through his writings, designs, lectures, and, above all, through a series of remarkable analytical drawings. X-Urbanism raises questions about the form of the city by examining various configurations of urban space, analyzing them in ways that blur the traditional opposition between figure and ground. This title serves as a visual lexicon of the formal properties of American urbanism-fabric, void, grid, wall-that reveal the hidden structure of the cities New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, New Haven, Des Moines, and Atlantic City. In the process, X-Urbanism confounds our expectations: it shows us the subtle order of chaotic Los Angeles, and the disruptions of New York's rigorous grid. X-Urbanism carefully reproduces Gandelsonas's drawings, which range from crisp, elegant pen-and-ink to colorful computer renderings and are as beautiful as they are instructive.

The energy used to operate buildings is one of the most significant sources of greenhouse gas emissions. While it is possible to reduce emissions through climate-responsive design, many architects are not trained to do this. Filling an urgent need for a design reference in this emerging field, this book describes how to reduce building-related greenhouse gas emissions through appropriate design techniques. It presents strategies to achieve CO2 reductions, with an emphasis on control of energy flows through the building envelope and passive heating and cooling strategies. This new, revised edition is updated throughout, and includes a new chapter on building simulations.

The past quarter century has seen a near revolution in the availability, versatility, and cost of architectural stone. Enormous technological advances in fabrication, transportation, and installation have combined with the emergence of new sources of stone in China, India, Southeast Asia, and the former Soviet Union to produce an astounding variety of choices for architects interested in incorporating stone into their designs. But, beyond the visual aesthetic of a sample, how can an architect determine whether a particular stone possesses characteristics suitable for a specific project? This is a crucial question, since an improper selection can cost thousands, or even millions, of dollars to correct. In Architectural Stone, Mark Chacon takes the guesswork out of stone selection, design, and installation. He provides detailed information on geological formation, physical characteristics, and fabrication techniques for igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic stone, and explains how these factors affect design and installation. Taking a how-to approach, he offers detailed instructions for all major installation techniques and examines the materials, systems, and specifications required for each technique, as well as methods of finishing, sealing, and maintaining installed stone. Finally, he presents detailed guidelines for the selection of stone, including selection criteria and practical concerns, special considerations for interior and exterior installations, informal testing and practical analysis, and the availability and suitability of particular types of stone. The only one-stop source for complete information on building stone, Architectural Stone also provides: * More than 100 field photographs detailing the quarrying, fabrication, and installation of a wide variety of building stone * Architectural details that describe the intent and use of stone in building systems * Computer-generated images of the geological formation of stone The first and only comprehensive reference for owners, architects, interior designers, and other building professionals working with stone, this book provides authoritative, up-to-date answers to critical questions on every aspect of using stone as a building material.
