The Story of Post-Modernism: Five Decades of Architecture

Radical Post-Modernism Charles Jencks, Sean Griffiths, Charles Holland, Sam Jacob Architectural Design (AD) series

Charles Jencks

Controversially puts Post-Modernism back on the map for contemporary architecture.

The first up-to-date narrative of Post-Modern Architecture. In The Story of Post-Modernism, Jencks, the authority on Post-Modern architecture and culture, provides the defining account of Post-Modern architecture from its earliest roots in the early 60’s to the present day. By breaking the narrative into seven distinct chapters, which are both chronological and overlapping, Jencks charts the ebb and flow of the movement, the peaks and troughs of different ideas and themes.

In this latest issue of AD the guest editors are drawn, like the content, from contrasting tastes and generations. Jencks, the definer of Post-Modernism for thirty years, discusses some issues that have re-emerged today, while the young group of British architects, FAT, argues for a particular version of RPM. An interview between Rem Koohaas and Charles Jencks discusses the influence of Post-Modernism while investigations of street art, graffiti and the 1980 Venice Biennale show that communication is at the heart of this radical strain of architecture.

The book is highly visual with over 350 images. As well as providing a chronological account of the movement, each chapter also has a special feature on the major works of a given period.

• The first up-to-date narrative of post-modern architecture — other major books on the subject were written 20 years ago. are new to the subject, as well as those who can remember its heyday in the 70’s and 80’s.

• Features the work of premier architects: Foreign Office, Frank Gehry, Herzog & de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas, Aldo Rossi and James Sterling. Charles Jencks is an American architectural theorist, author and landscape architect. He has written widely on post-modern and modern architecture. His bestselling book The Language of Post-Modern Architecture (1977) popularised post-modernism in architecture and made him the leading author on the subject in the 70’s and 80’s. He is the founder of the Maggie Centres with his late wife Maggie Keswick, a charity that has become influential for its enlightened provision of uplifting environments for cancer care, designed by some of the world's most renowned architects. Jencks writes and lectures internationally on architecture and landscape design.

Includes more than 250 colour images.

Narrative Architecture

Experimental Green Strategies: Ecological research as a design tool

The first book to look architectural narrative in the eye. To architects the enduring attraction of narrative is that it offers a way of engaging with the way a city feels and works. Rather than reducing architecture to mere style or an overt emphasis on technology, it foregrounds the experiential dimension of architecture. In practice it is just as easy to be minimalist as maximalist in its execution. Nigel Coates' Narrative Architecture is the first publication to look the subject in the eye. It deals with its background, analysis and practice as well as its future development. •

A prominent figure in the design world, Coates has made a significant contribution to furniture and interior design, as well as architecture.

Features the work of Will Alsop, Diller Scofidio + Renfo, Herzog & de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas, Bernard Tschumi, FAT, Enric Miralles and NL architects.

One of the first books to look at narrative in a contemporary context.

Features over 120 colour images.

An insider's guide into the most current ecological research in leading international practices. Sustainable design and ecological building are the most significant global challenges for the design profession. To meet new building regulations and national targets for carbon emissions all future buildings will be judged on their ‘green’ merits. 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. Contemporary practices have responded by setting up multi-disciplinary internal research and development teams, with offices such as Foster + Partners. KPF and Aedas, setting the bar for ground-breaking research and development. The aim of internal groups is often to adapt and create new technologies and materials and to borrow ways of working from other disciplines to focus on innovation rather than incrementally increasing performance or efficiency.

Nigel Coates is an architect, designer and educator. Along with eight of his ex-students, he founded the NATO group in 1983. With Doug Branson he began Branson Coates Architecture in 1985, and together they built extensively in Japan and the UK. He is a prolific product and furniture designer, and has designed for Hitch Mylius, Alessi, Fornasetti and Slamp. His drawings and furniture are in the collection of the V&A. He is the author of several books including Guide to Ecstacity (2003). For over 15 years, Coates was Professor of Architectural Design at the Royal College of Art, London.

Provides an effective framework for computational thinking in design.

Advances the application of the biological paradigm in architecture to a higher-level of integration in computer-aided design and manufacture.

This book will provide a unique collection of seminal texts on computational design thinking. An important aspect of the book will be the way that it connects adjacent fields and historical texts, introducing the original thinking that has been influential in the formation of today's computational design discourse.

In order to effectively introduce and outline the enabling power of computational design in relation to a biological paradigm, this publication looks in turn at formation and materialisation in nature; integrative computational design; and engineering and manufacturing integration. Menges' introduction to the issue is augmented by an article by the prominent architectural thinker and Harvard Professor, Sanford Kwinter, who situates the featured research and design projects in contemporary architectural discourse. An important scientific perspective is provided by the writings of Philip Ball and Scott Turner, who explain the latest findings in research on natural morphogenesis. Cutting-edge computational design approaches are outlined by avant-garde architects, such as Neri Oxman and Marc Fornes, as well as established leaders, like Patrick Schumacher with the Computational Design Group at Zaha Hadid Architects. The profound consequences of the synthesis of architectural design, construction and manufacturing is contextualised by the work of Buro Happold's Generative Geometry Group and Foster & Partners Specialist Modelling Group. There is also an article dedicated to the application of advanced robotic manufacturing and construction-scale rapid prototyping in the building sector.

An essential and original reader on the highly topical subject of fabrication in architecture for practitioners and producers alike.

A major theoretical work by one of the world's leading architects that revolutionises the application of current thinking on design.

This AD Reader will become a definitive choice on the reading lists of every ambitious student, designer, critic, historian or engineer looking to fathom the multitude of strands that influence the manufacture of man's most prolific occupation in the 21st Century. Readership will extend from students to researchers, academics to practitioners, industrialists to suppliers and beyond.

This second volume addresses the specific, contemporary challenges that architecture faces. It formulates these tasks, looking specifically at how architecture is seeking to organise and articulate the complexity of post-fordist network society through its language and structure. Explicitly addressing how current architecture can upgrade its design methodology in the face of an increasingly demanding task environment, characterised by both complexity and novelty. Architecture's specific role within contemporary society is explained and its relationship to politics is clarified. Finally, the emerging new style of Parametricism is introduced and theoretically grounded.

Manufacturing the Bespoke provides an original and informative reader on the subject of translating architectural ideas from conceptual proposition to physical manifestation. At a time when roles, methods and capabilities within disciplines of building production are in unprecedented flux. It features new essays from pioneering architects, engineers, academics and designers from around the world on previously published and built works, new and unbuilt work. Contributing contemporary architects include: Charles Walker at Zaha Hadid Architects; Mark Burry on the completion of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona; and Philip Beesley. The book will also encompass a number of extended articles by internationally renowned critics, theorists, educators and designers, such as Mathias Kohler, Nevi Oxman and Michael Stacey.

London (Re)generation

Al Bahr Towers: A Landmark Building for the Abu Dhabi Investment Council

David Littlefield Architectural Design (AD) series 978-1-119-99378-0 / 1-119-99378-4 136 pp. Pub: 06/01/12 £24.99 Paper Special Topics

Edwin Heathcote, Aedas ISBN: TBC 174 pp. £49.99 Paper

A lively and stimulating critique of the contemporary regeneration of London. Plans to regenerate East London and transform the capital are integral to the vision of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This title brings into focus notions of regeneration within the specific context of London: what does the term actually mean, how has it been applied and is it being applied? Historical overviews of large-scale interventions from the past are combined with case studies of new and planned schemes, and explorations of how change and rejuvenation can retain or enhance the city's unique sense of place and identity.

Pub: 05/12 Special Topics

Provides fascinating insights into the construction of this groundbreaking building.



With 300 colour images and specially commissioned photography of the building, captions and leader lines, this book will speak to several audiences, such as the local business community in Abu Dhabi; consultants and contractors directly involved in the project; and architects and architectural students. The book includes:

Looking beyond the Games, the title will look at the direction in which regeneration is going in a post-recession economy. How can a long-established, highly protected and even cherished, city like London continue to renew and expand? Unlike Chinese or Middle Eastern cities, London is constrained by a wide range of factors from heritage protection and geography to finance and democratic accountability; yet the city continues to grow, change and develop, either incrementally or through big, dramatic leaps like the Olympic Park and King's Cross. In this way, London provides a fascinating case study of how a developed, Western city can negotiate and greet the pressures for change. David Littlefield is a senior lecturer in the Department of Planning and Architecture at the University of the West of England, Bristol (UWE). He studied design to Masters level at Chelsea College of Art & Design, and has contributed to a wide range of architectural and design journals including Architectural Design, Building Design, Frame and Blueprint. He has written, co-written or edited a number of books on architecture, including Liverpool One: Remaking a City Centre and Architectural Voice: Listening to Old Buildings, both published by Wiley. David curated the exhibition ‘Unseen Hands; 100 years of structural engineering' at the V&A in 2008. David leads the 2nd year Architecture & Planning design studio module at UWE, contributes to the advanced cultural studies module in the university's post-graduate architecture programme, and is external examiner for interior architecture at Leeds Metropolitan University.

An engaging and accessible narrative for all audiences, highlighting the background behind the building; the client, the circumstances behind the commission and a summary of the way that it recognises traditional Middle Eastern vernacular solutions through its highly innovative and sustainable form.

A chapter on traditional architecture in the Middle East and how it developed low-energy, climatically responsive solutions through screens, layering and orientation etc by a specialist in Islamic architecture.

A chapter outlining in detail the innovative solutions behind the Towers. This will illustrate the sources of inspiration, such as the screens that were used in the research for the design, and drawings and details of the final building.

A further chapter on the procurement process behind the towers with input from the architects and contractors.

978-0-470-72140-7 / 0-470-72140-5 272 pp. Pub: 04/03/11 The guide to Ecological Masterplanning

A new title in the Architectural Design series that explores the potential of computational mathematics in cutting-edge design.

Ken Yeang is internationally recognised as the leading proponent of ecological design in architecture. He has built over 200 buildings globally and published numerous books advocating an environmentally responsive approach to design. He is probably best known as the inventor of the green skyscraper; it was his innovative idea to develop bioclimatic features in a high-density building type. It is for this and his ecological urban design that he is most influential within architecture.

Mathematics has always been a vital tool in the architect's trade, but the last fifteen years have seen a sharp rise in the power of computers and has led to computational abilities far beyond anything previously available. Modern design software and computing power have changed the traditional role of geometry in architecture and opened up new possibilities enabled by topology, non-Euclidean geometry, and other areas of mathematics. With insight from a top-notch list of contributors, including such notables as Mark Burry, Bernard Cache, Philippe Morel and Fabien Scheurer, Mathematics in Space discusses how the advent of computation and information technology has affected the work of contemporary architects. •

This new title in the Architectural Design series updates architectural mathematics since the digital revolution

With world-class contributors, this is an essential resource for anyone interested in the ways computation has transformed the discipline

The book explores fascinating issues in modern design, most importantly the impact of mathematics on contemporary design creativity

978-0-470-74642-4 / 0-470-74642-4 208 pp. Pub: 25/03/11 This book looks at computer programming (scripting) incorporated as part of the design process. Scripting refers to the capabilities within many design software packages that allow the user to customise the software around their own predilections and modes of working. It also automates routine aspects and repetitive activities within design such as making multiple versions but each copy being different in some unique way, freeing-up the designer to spend more time on design thinking.

A title in the prestigious Architectural Design (AD) series that explores enlightened urban strategies in Latin America, as the South American continent stands on the precipice of major change.

• A highly pertinent topic with the international spotlight on Rio de Janeiro as it prepares to become the first South American city to host the Olympics in 2016.

Customisation affords the designer opportunities to not only escape the strictures inherent in any software but also to experiment. Software modified by the designer through scripting offers a range of speculations that are simply not possible using the software only as the manufacturers intended it to be used. The advantage of automating routines and coupling them with emerging digital fabrication technologies, significant cost reductions can be achieved by saving time at the front-end and taking advantage of the new file-to-factory protocols.

• Latin America at the Crossroads focuses on Curitiba in Brazil and Bogota and Medellin in Colombia that have become renowned international exemplars for urban revitalisation and sustainability.

• It features work by Latin American architectural practices, such as the Caracas think tank, Alejandro Aravena, Teddy Cruz and Alejandro Echeverri.

Throughout the ages architects have attempted to capture the essence of living systems as design inspiration. However, practitioners of the built environment have had to deal with a fundamental split between the artificial urban landscape and nature, owing to a technological ‘gap’ that means architects have been unable to make effective use of biological systems in urban environments. Protocell Architecture is an edition of AD that shows for the first time that contemporary architects can create and construct architectures that are bottom up, synthetically biological, green and have no recourse to shallow bio-mimicry. Synthetic Biology will have as much impact on architecture as cyberspace has had—probably more. The key to these amazing architectural innovations is the Protocell.

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 not only aerials and to-scale plans and sections, but also purpose-made photography, drawings and diagrams.

Contributors include: Rachel Armstrong, Hanczyc, Lee Cronin and Mark Morris.


Provides a comprehensive comparative analysis of high-rise towers in their urban context.

Includes newly commissioned drawings, drawn to scale: urban plans, floor plans, sections and elevations.

Architects include Neil Spiller, Nic Clear, Iwamoto Scott, Paul Preissner, Omar Khan, Dan Slavinsky, Philip Beesley and Neri Oxman.

Typological Urbanism: Projective Cities Sam Jacoby, Christopher Lee

The Life of the British Home: An Architectural History

Architectural Design (AD) series

How can architecture today be simultaneously relevant to its urban context and at the very forefront of design? For a decade or so, iconic architecture has been fuelled by the market economy and consumers’ insatiable appetite for the novel and the different. The relentless speed and scale of urbanisation, with its ruptured, decentralised and fast-changing context, though, demands a rethink of the role of the designer and the function of architecture.

Unlocking the life of the British home, this book reveals how houses have had to respond over time to the very different ways that they have been lived in by their occupants. Whether it is the medieval manor house built around a vast hall to accommodate a large communal household; a wattle and daub cottage that would have sheltered stock and family alike; a Tudor merchant’s house that was above the shop; the magnificent seat of an 18th-century landowner that incorporated grand state apartments with adjoining rooms on a dramatic axis, culminating in the Lord’s bed chamber; the Victorian villa with its profusion of back stairs and passages that was organised almost wholly around the social desire to separate master from servant; or the English terrace house, whose layout was determined as much by the economic division of land and prevalent ideas of public sanitation as by the needs of their working inhabitants.

This title pursues and develops the strategies of typological reasoning in order to re-engage architecture with the city in both a critical and speculative manner. Architecture and urbanism are no longer seen as separate domains, or subservient to each other, but as synthesising disciplines and processes that allow an integrating and controlling effect on both the city and its built environment.

Includes significant contributions from architects and thinkers: Lawrence Barth, Peter Carl, Michael Hensel, Marina Lathouri, Martino Tattara and Pier Vittorio Aureli. Featured architects include: Ben van Berkel & Caroline Bos of UNStudio, DOGMA, Toyo Ito & Associates, l'AUC, OMA, SANAA and Serie Architects.

Christopher CM Lee has been the Unit Master of AA Diploma Unit 6 since 2002 where he researches the topic of type and the city. He is the principal of Serie Architects and was awarded ICON's 20 Essential Young Architects 2008 and Architecture Record's Design Vanguard 2005. Sam Jacoby graduated from the AA and is an architect in private practice in London. He has taught at the AA since 2002 and at Nottingham University since 2007.
