GENERAL ARCHITECTURE A collection of essential reading for all architecture students.

An architectural theory classic – now in its third edition

THE EYES OF THE SKIN ARCHITECTURE AND THE SENSES, 3RD EDITION Juhani Pallasmaa First published in 1996, The Eyes of the Skin has become a classic of architectural theory and is required reading on architecture courses around the world. It asks the far-reaching question why, when there are five senses, has one single sense – sight become so predominant in architectural culture and design? Juhani Pallasmaa argues that the suppression of the other four sensory realms has led to the overall impoverishment of our built environment, often diminishing the emphasis on the spatial experience of a building and architecture’s ability to inspire, engage and be wholly life enhancing. Includes: • New essay by architectural author and educator Peter MacKeith that combines both a biographical portrait of Pallasmaa and an outline of his architectural thinking, its origins and its relationship to the wider context of Nordic and European thought, past and present • Focuses on the fundamental humanity, insight and sensitivity of Pallasmaa’s approach to architecture • Illustrated by Pallasmaa’s sketches and photographs of his own work • The new edition also provides a foreword by the internationally renowned architect Steven Holl and a revised introduction by Pallasmaa himself A must read for every architecture student! 978-1-119-94128-6 Hardback 192pp April 2012 £24.99 / $40.00

INTRODUCTION TO ARCHITECTURE Francis D.K. Ching, James F.Eckler This major new collection distills the work of legendary author and illustrator Francis D. K. Ching into a single volume Introduction to Architecture presents the essential texts and drawings of Francis D. K. Ching in an easy-to-understand format. With his typically highly graphic approach, this introductory text from Ching surveys the design of spaces, buildings, and cities. Readers will explore the histories and theories of architecture, design elements and process, and the technical aspects of the contemporary profession of architecture. • Collects the essential texts and drawings of Francis D. K. Ching into one volume, covering the fundamentals of architecture • Over 1,000 drawings presented throughout with explanatory text • New graphic design is aided by new essays by James Eckler, connecting the chapters into a seamless narrative of the story of architecture

What Is Architecture?

• Supplemental Instructor’s Manual for classroom use For those pursuing a career in architecture or anyone who loves architectural design and drawing, Introduction to Architecture presents a beautifully illustrated and comprehensive guide to the subject.

Creative Process and Construction Method

Architects go through many versions of an idea to perfect it. They experiment with different materials and modes of representing their ideas in order to develop them. However, all of the ideas that are layered into the design of a building must be realized using conventional methods of building construction. As the idea develops, it must remain something that is possible to build.

Architecture is a very complex discipline. Most people live their lives in constant contact with architecture. It provides a place to dwell, work, and play. With so much responsibility for determining our experiences, and with such a variety of uses, architecture has too many forms to be precisely categorized. One house is used essentially the same way as any other, but how many different sizes, shapes, or configurations are possible for a house? There is no single correct formula for determining the perfect layout of a house, or any other type of building. At the same time as architecture is indefinite, it also has a responsibility to facilitate specific functions.

development of an idea through a series of sketches leading to The develo construction drawing of the finished idea a construc

Houses may come in various forms and densities Because of the diverse forms architecture can take and the need for it to function in specific ways, it should be considered both an art and a science. It is an artistic discipline that seeks to invent through design. It is also a technical profession that relies on specific techniques of building construction.

Intuitive and Academic

Many of the architect’s ideas occur spontaneously, or through the act of making a drawing or model. Many also come from study and research and the accumulation of knowledge over time. The Ancient Greeks called these two sides of architecture episteme and techne. Episteme is the pursuit of knowledge. Techne is a craft or artistic pursuit. To understand architecture one must realize that these two notions are intertwined and are often overlapped in ways that make them interchangeable.

This all-in-one package is a trove of discovery for any future architect. 978-1-118-14206-6 Paperback 432pp October 2012 £36.99 / $55.00

Artistic Discipline and Technical Profession

Episteme Techne

Architects can use almost any techniques for drawing or making models to develop their ideas. However, they must document and communicate those ideas using a universally understood graphic language.

The two parts of architecture are realized through what architects refer to as “the design process.” The design process is the series of steps that are taken to develop a building from initial idea through the final proposal. While designing, architects must continually move back and forth between the creative act of architecture and the technical understanding of how a building is built.

Starting with the dawn of human society, through early civilizations, to the pre-Columbian American tribes, Architecture, Culture, History traces the different cultural formations that developed in various places throughout the world to form the built environment. • The history of early architecture is brought to life with full color photographs, maps, and drawings • Looks at how indigenous societies build today in order to help inform the past • Color maps are designed to bring out the global relationships • Provides a thorough historical analysis of topics ranging from building techniques to village and city culture 978-1-118-14210-3 Hardback May 2013 £50.00 / $75.00


From modest ancient dwellings and medieval merchants’ houses to imposing stately mansions and modern urban estates, the book explores the forces that have shaped our homes and examines the attitudes and innovations of each age. The story begins with the earliest Neolithic houses, built by the first people to surrender a nomadic way of life and settle on the land. It moves on to the Iron Age, the period of Roman invasion and classical order, the medieval era, the ostentatious mansions erected in Tudor times to display the wealth and social standing of their owners, and the urban civility of the Georgian terraces. It then turns to the villas and highrise apartments of the Victorian period and, lastly, the 20th century, when domestic architecture had to respond to industrialisation and unprecedented urbanisation. Each chapter brings these ideas to life by focussing on buildings that are accessible and open to the public. 978-0-470-68333-0 Hardback 312pp March 2012 £24.99 / $40.00

Patrik S. Schumacher

Iain Borden

By presenting architecture as a discipline with its own logic, The Autopoiesis of Architecture, presents a wholly new theoretical approach to architecture. Author Patrik Schumacher offers an innovative treatment that enriches architectural theory with a coordinated arsenal of concepts facilitating both detailed analysis and insightful comparisons with other domains, such as art, science and politics.

A collection of the very best student work from the last decade

Speculating with Architecture

Volume I: A New Framework for Architecture Introduces the theoretical framework and traces the historical processes of architecture’s differentiation within its societal environment: its elevation above the craft of building, its emancipation from religion and politics, as well as its separation from art and science. On this basis Schumacher insists on the necessity of maintaining disciplinary autonomy and argues for its distinct demarcation in relation to art and engineering. 978-0-470-77298-0 Paperback 478pp December 2010 £31.99 / $55.00

978-0-470-77299-7 Hardback 478pp December 2010 £80.00 / $130.00

Volume II: A New Agenda for Architecture Completes the analysis of the discourse and further proposes a new agenda for contemporary architecture in response to the challenges and opportunities that confront architectural design within the context of current societal and technological developments.

Through a detailed presentation of over 170 student projects, each succinctly explained by the tutors, the book shows how architectural designs and ideas can creatively address some of the world’s most pressing urban and social problems through buildings and other forms of architectural invention. The wide range of projects on show deal inventively with such important issues as cultural identity, housing, climate change, health and public space, as well as architectural concerns with the imagination of exciting forms and aesthetic languages. Complementing the student projects is a series of short, provocative essays written by tutors at the school. Ranging from landscape to buildings, from urbanism to interaction, from making to advanced technology, these essays postulate a series of manifestoes and agendas which both create a conceptual framework around the incredible variety of student work on display. 9780470772799 Paperback 256 pages June 2009 £21.99 / $37.50

Charles Jencks In the late 20th century, PostModernism was the leading global movement in architecture. It questioned the assumption of a single style and cultural totality and effectively stopped the Modern Movement in its tracks. After twenty years of success, and then the inevitable commercial rips-offs, Post-Modern architecture succumbed to ersatz, debased by fashion as other leading movements before it. In The Story of Post-Modernism, Charles Jencks, provides a lively and accessible account of Post-Modern architecture from its roots in the early 60s to the present day. In an evolutionary diagram, Jencks charts the variety of streams that now make up the river delta and discusses the main characters from James Stirling to Frank Gehry and Herzog & de Meuron. 978-0-470-68895-3 Paperback 272 pp September 2011 £24.99 / $40.00

City Catalyst

Experimental Green Strategies

Architecture in the Age of Extreme Urbanisation

Redefining Ecological Design Research Guest-edited by Terri Peters

Guest-edited by Alexander Eisenschmidt The city has become an important new starting point in the quest for architecture. Rather than imposing order and form on the city, architects and urban designers are seeking direct inspiration from the existing urban environment and learning from its everchanging state. City Analyst will become a resource for designers who want to engage with the city on its own grounds, to abet its potentials and seek opportunities in its existing condition. • Features the work of innovative practice from around the world: Atelier Bow-Wow, Jurgen Mayer H, Normal Architecture Office (NAO), Adriaan Geuze, West 8, Ron Witte/WW, UrbanLab, Sean Lally/Weathers, and OMA • Contributions by renowned architectural thinkers and writers such as Keller Easterling, Albert Pope, Michelle Provoost, Robert Somol and Anthony Vidler 978-1-119-97266-2 Paperback 136pp September 2012 £24.99 / $40.00

For architects to maintain a competitive edge in a global market, innovation is now key; the design of new processes, technologies and materials that combat carbon emissions and improve the sustainable performance of buildings are paramount. In pursuit of integrated sustainability and low-energy building, material and formal innovation and new tools and technologies, Experimental Green Strategies illustrates that the future of architecture is evolving in an exchange of ideas across disciplines. • Contributors include Robert Aish, Peter Busby, Mary Ann Lazarus, Andrew Marsh, Hugh Whitehead and Simos Yannas • Features the GXN research group at 3XN; Advanced Modelling Group at Aedas; Foster & Partners’ Specialist Modeling Group; Adapative Building Initiative; Hoberman Associates and Buro Happold; Biomimicry Guild Alliance; HOK and the Biomimicry Guild and the Nikken Sekkei Research Institute • Projects by 10 Design, 2012 Architecten, Baumschlager Eberle, Berkebile Nelson, Immenschuh McDowell Architetects (BNIM), HOK and RAU 978-0-470-68979-0 Paperback 136pp November 2011 £22.99 / $37.50

Computation Works

London (Re)generation

The Building of Algorithmic Thought

Guest-edited by David Littlefield

Xavier De Kestelier and Brady Peters Architects are now taking advantage of the computer in new ways through experimentation with algorithmic and simulation-driven design. The development of new computational tools can create more responsive designs, allowing architects to explore new design options and to analyze architectural decisions during the design process. Computation Works focuses on this emerging theme in design practice, showcasing built and soon to be built projects and providing a state of the art in computational design. • Contributors: Daniel Cardoso, Kaustuv DeBiswas, Christian Derix, Stylianos Dritsas, Sawako Kaijima, Neil Katz, Michael Meredith, Clemens Preisinger, Dennis Sheldon, Kai Strehlke, and Hugh Whitehead • Explores how leading international practices are experimenting with computational design • Features projects from Aedas, Fosters + Partners, Gehry Technologies, Grimshaw & Partners, Herzog and DeMeuron, MVRDV, Populous, SOM and UNStudio • Features c. 250 colour images

Combining historical overviews of largescale interventions are combined with case studies of contemporary projects, David Littlefield explores how change and rejuvenation can retain or enhance the city’s unique sense of place and identity. He looks at the direction in which regeneration is going in a post-recession economy and how can a long-established, cherished city, like London, continue to evolve. • Explores ways in which London’s examples can provide fascinating case studies of how a developed Western city can negotiate and greet the pressures for change • Feature case studies from around the capital including the Olympic Park, King’s Cross, The Shard and Dagenham as well as smaller rejuvenation projects • Contributors from leading industry figures including Murray Fraser,Sir Terry Farrell, Peter Bishop and Peter Ackroyd 978-1-119-99378-0 Paperback 136pp January 2012 £24.99 / $40.00

The New Pastoralism

Human Experience and Place

Guest edited by Mark Titman

Sustaining Identity Paul Brislin

An exploration of a 2018 green and technological architecture New gently engaging architectures are arising that employ biometics, hydroponics, cybernetic feedback systems, micro ecologies, traditional construction methods with natural materials and vertical landscapes. These are used to create small, subtle, natural spaces that help remind us of our humanity. The use of the skies, planting, water, wildlife and the Seasons are becoming subtly incorporated into buildings layouts and onto buildings’ surfaces to offer a subtle new interface with our primordial desire to reconnect with Nature. The New Pastoralism demonstrates how small-scale additions using planting and wildlife can bring about engaging, delightful and efficient structures and spaces. • The prominent featured architects will include: Michael Sorkin, Nicholas Grimshaw, Ken Yeang, Kathryn Findlay and Mos Architecture • An introduction from curator Colin Harrison who explorse the work of 18th-century pastoral artist Samuel Palmer and the set designer for the virtual landscapes used in the film Avatar • Provides a vision of a lush, verdant technological architecture

Exceptional architecture stands in the face of the negative aspects of commercial globalisation by celebrating the spirit of individual place; and by being rooted in its culture, its geography and in the experience and value systems of the people that have created it. By drawing from work across the world, Human Experience and Place demonstrates that it is possible to design outstanding buildings that sustain a sense of local identity, both in terms of cultural heritage and the conservation of the environment. • Contributors include: Peter Buchanan, Ricky Burdett, Farrokh Derakshani, Murray Fraser, Jayne Merkel and Juhani Pallasmaa • Features include: Arup Associates, Sean Godsell, Bijoy Jain (Studio Mumbai), Rick Joy, Diébédo Francis Kéré, Jonathan Kirschenfeld, Christopher Lee (Serie Architects), Li Xiaodong Atelier, Josep Lluis Mateo, Pezo von Ellrichshausen Arquitectos, Wang Shu, Woha and Kongjian Yu (Turenscape) 978-1-118-33641-0 Paperback 136pp November 2012 £24.99 / $40.00

Past, Present and Future

Architecture in an Age of Depliting Resources

Guest-edited by Michael Hensel Over the last few decades, Iranian architects have made a significant contribution to architectural design. This has, however, remained largely unrecognised internationally. Iran: Past, Present and Future introduces key works and key architects from a range of generations – at home and abroad – and highlights the potential of historical structures for contemporary architecture. It looks at garden and landscape design as well as the urban fabric in Iran from a historical and contemporary context and also includes articles on the work of post-revolutionary architecture and Bahrain Shirdel.

Jon Goodbun (Guest Editor) with Jeremy Till, Deljana Iossifova Currently, the planet is on the brink of chronic scarcity of resources. There are many ways that architecture, urban planning and design research can tackle such issues: from developing new forms of analysis of global flows and scarcities, to specific local and global design-based solutions. In all these cases, a full engagement with these issues has the potential to completely reconfigure design practice in radically new, post-sustainable directions. Scarcity makes a major contribution to these developments.

• Features Hariri & Hariri, Nader Tehrani of NADAAA, Farjadi Architects, and Studio Integrate

• •Brings together leading thinkers for the first time in a single volume: Michael Braungart, Ezio Manzini, Erik Swyngedouw, John Thackara and Jeremy Till

Radical Post-Modernism Charles Jencks, Sean Griffiths, Charles Holland and Sam Jacob Radical Post-Modernism (RPM) marks the resurgence of a critical architecture that engages in a far-reaching way with issues of taste, space, character and ornament. It is a multi-dimensional, amorphous category, which is heavily influenced by contemporary art, cultural theory, modern literature and everyday life. Radical PostModernism demonstrates how, in the age of late capitalism, Radical Post-Modernism provides an architecture of resistance and contemporary relevance. • An interview between Rem Koohaas and Charles Jencks discusses the influence of Post-Modernism • Investigations of street art, graffiti and the 1980 Venice Biennale show that communication is at the heart of this radical strain of architecture • Contributions from: Sean Griffiths, Charles Holland, Sam Jacob, Charles Jencks and Kester Rattenbury • Features work by leading architects such as ARM, Atelier Bow Wow, Crimson, CUP, FAT, FOA, Édouard François, Terunobu Fujimori, Hild und K, Rem Koolhaas, John Kormelling, muf, Valerio Olgiati 978-0-470-66988-4 Paperback 136pp September 2011 £22.99 / $37.50

Architecture and the Genius of Place

Nigel Coates

Eric Parry

In architecture, narrative prioritises human experiences and the need to shape them into stories. It places the emphasis on a buildings meaning rather than performance. To architects, the enduring attraction of narrative is that it offers a way of engaging with the way a city feels and works.

Context has become increasingly important for sustainable everyday life and urban design in the face of the deafening onslaught of globalization. Context: Architecture and the Genius of Place draws on Eric Parry’s extensive experience of creating buildings within complex urban settings and shows how the existing fabric and social conditions can provide an essential starting point for new design. The contemporary definition of context in architectural theory and practice has been a focus for debate since the 1980s. Aldo Rossi, Ken Frampton, Colin Rowe, Peter Eisenman and more recent texts address, from different positions, the formal agenda. However, Context will aim to look beyond this aspect to the fundamentals that give a new social and cultural perspective to this very important point of departure for designers. It will turn the urban statistician’s telescopic focus on global trends inside out to develop an understanding of the cultural and physical conditions that allow us to speak of such archetypes as the Parisian Café, the London High Street, the Baltic City Square or the Mumbai Market. • The six chapters evolve from the fundamentals of the ground beneath our feet, to the importance of orientation, the sequential understanding of urban space, the dialogue of parts within a whole, Landscape and The City - and the uses of the formal and informal

• Coates explores the potential for narrative as a way of interpreting buildings from ancient history through to the present • Features architects as diverse as William Kent, Antoni Gaudí, Eero Saarinen, Ettore Sottsass, Superstudio, Rem Koolhaas and FAT • Provides an overview of the work of NATO and Coates and other contemporary designers 978-0-470-05744-5 Paperback 168pp January 2012 £27.99 / $45.00

Scripting Cultures Architectural Design and Programming

• Demonstrates how context should inspire rather than constrain architecture

Mark Burry

• Context is a central preoccupation for architects and students of architecture, whether working in a historic or contemporary setting

With scripting, computer programming becomes integral to the digital design process. It provides unique opportunities for innovation, enabling the designer to customise the software around their own predilections and modes of working and automating many routine aspects of the design process.

• Features 120 colour images Context provides students and practitioners with a framework for thinking about design responses at a wide range of scales of making and what their relationship might be to the cultural origins of place. 978-1-119-95271-8 Paperback 200pp October 2013 £27.99 / $45.00

• Investigates the application of scripting for productivity, experimentation and design speculation • Offers detailed exploration of the scripting of Gaudí’s final realised design for the Sagrada Família, leading to file-to-factory digital fabrication

The Embodied Image Imagination and Imagery in Architecture Juhani Pallasmaa All artistic and architectural effects are evoked, mediated and experienced through poeticised images. These images are embodied and lived experiences that take place in the flesh of the world’, becoming part of us, at the same time that we unconsciously project aspects of ourselves on to a conceived space, object or event. Artistic images have a life and reality of their own and they develop through unexpected associations rather than rational and causal logic. Images are usually thought of as retinal pictures but profound poetic images are multi-sensory and they address us in an embodied and emotive manner.

PerformanceOriented Design Towards an Inclusive Approach to the Architectural Design and the Environment Michael Hensel An innovative and highly pragmatic approach to architectural design and thinking advocated by one of architecture’s foremost protagonists

• Fully illustrated with over sixty images ranging from scientific images to historic artistic and architectural masterpieces

The concept of performance-oriented design was spawned by the intellectual ferment of 1940s and 1950s and led to a sweeping paradigm shift in the arts and sciences known as the ‘performative turn’. While the term ‘performance’ has since become commonplace among architects, there are widely divergent opinions as to its proper meaning.

• Artworks span Michelangelo and Vermeer to Gordon Matta-Clark, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto, Steven Holl and Daniel Libeskind

In this groundbreaking book Hensel attempts to remedy this situation by providing an overarching framework for designing sustainable, technically sound and aesthetically pleasing buildings.

• Looks at the image in contemporary culture; language, thought and the image; the many faces of the image; the poetic image; and finally the architectural image

978-0-470-71191-0 Cloth 152pp April 2011 £62.00 / $100.00

• Looks at performance from a material perspective and considers the role of material assemblies with regard to the environment • Features 100 colour illustrations, including examples of pioneering works by Hensel and many other contemporary

Ornament The Politics of Architecture and Subjectivity Antoine Picon Ornament was originally symbolic and was intended to convey meaning. In contemporary architecture and culture, the question of meaning is often considered wholly irrelevant. This book will discuss these differences and argue for historical continuity in terms of the strong subjective dimension of ornament and from a political aspect. During the Renaissance, Baroque and nineteenth century, architectural ornamentation was inseparable from political concerns such as the desire to reflect social hierarchies and to promote civic values. This poses a significant question: What might the politics of ornament be today? • The current revival of interest in ornament in architecture makes this a highly topical subject • Features historical architecture and contemporary works by the likes of Herzog & de Meuron, Sauerbruch Hutton, Rem Koolhaas, Greg Lynn and Evan Douglis • Features 120 colour images 978-1-119-96595-4 Paper 208pp April 2013 £27.99 / $45.00

The Urban Towers Handbook Eric Firley, Julie Gimbal For well over a century, the modern skyscraper has provided an ingenious solution to high-density living and working - accommodating the greatest number of people in a building with a minimal footprint. In the contemporary context of drastic urban growth, its role can only gain in importance. The question is how to avoid past mistakes and how to conceive the tower as a positive component of an existing or newly created urban fabric. In a thoroughly analytical and comparative way The Urban Towers Handbook provides answers to these questions and serves as a reference book and design tool for architects, planners and developers alike. Its comprehensive graphic documentation includes aerials and to-scale plans and sections, and purpose-made photography, drawings and diagrams. • Over 50 case studies have been classified into three groups: solitaires, clusters and vertical cities including classics such as the Rockefeller Center, NY, Torre Velasca, Milan, Roppongi Hills, Tokyo and the making of Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai • Hong Kong, Shanghai and São Paulo have been analysed as existing examples of vertical cities • Outlines high-rise regulations in seven cities around the world and highlights how planning authorities use tall buildings for the realisation of their urban goals and visions • Addresses the uneasy relationship between high-rise structures and sustainability 978-0-470-68474-0 Hardback 264pp May 2011 £50.00 / €85.00 m/go/urbanh handbooks The Urban Housing Handbook
