Sustainable design and building finally gets the Ching treatment with Green Building Illustrated

A highly illustrated reference tool, providing visual analysis of major urban extensions and masterplans from around the world

Using Francis D.K. Ching’s signature graphic presentation, the theory and practices of the complexities of green building are made clear and understandable. Beginning with an introduction explaining why we need to build green, the theory behind it, current rating systems and new directions in the industry, Green building Illustrated supplies a comprehensive look at: • Importance of community and site selection • Passive design using building shape and near-building features, as well as minimum-impact materials • Towards net zero energy through outer envelope and inner envelope design, the importance of unheated spaces and zoning/compartmentalization, and lighting and plug loads. • Water conservation, ventilation & indoor air quality and active heating & cooling • Operation, maintenance, and quality control • Affordability and life cycle analysis • Importance of nature and beauty in green architecture Sure to be the standard reference on the subject for students and professionals, Green Building Illustrated is also a great book to read and enjoy.

With an important emphasis on the processes and structures that influence urban form, this guide highlights the significant impact that public or private landownership, management and funding might have on shaping a particular project. The Masterplanning Handbook includes 20 subjects that are rigorously analysed through original diagrams, scale drawings and descriptive texts, complemented by key statistics and colour photography: • Each case study offers professionals, developers and city planners, as well as students of Architecture, both formal and organisational comparisons of urban design, leading to intriguing insights • Features a wide geographical range of contemporary and historic masterplans • Encompasses European projects from the 19th century to the present day, including Belgravia in London, Sarphatipark in Amsterdam and Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm • Features case studies of post-war development in North America, and recent international urban schemes situated in Buenos Aires, Downtown Dubai and the New Central Business District in Beijing.

CITY AS A TANGLED BANK e Sir Terry Farrell 9781118487341 Nov 2013 • PB £27.99/ $45.00

Written by international architect-planner Sir Terry Farrell, this book encourages planners and architects to look, learn and admire the nature of the forces that drive the change. Searching for patterns within the apparent turbulence and complexity, Farrell analyses the notions of urban design and urban evolution and examines whether or not they oppose one another. This book covers a range of themes, from discussing emergence as an idea in a biological and architectural context, to embracing the importance of chain reactions in the progress of urban engineering; the character of habitation; and the effects of digital technology on city evolution. Farrell brings his considerable experience in practice to bear, elucidating his thoughts with examples from cities across the world, including Beijing, Hong Kong, London, New York and Paris.

This is the story of the making of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, created for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Situated in East London, the Olympic Park is recognized as one of the very first sustainable public parks of the 21st century. Exploring how Olympic Park was conceived as a new piece of city that shifted London’s entire center of gravity eastwards; this book reveals the philosophical context and technical insights that went into the creation of this sustainable, contemporary urban park of international significance. Richly illustrated, it is a unique reference for those involved in the planning, design, delivery and management of sustainable urban parks and new communities on post-industrial and other land, and those seeking to host future Games and other large-scale international events.

9781118361429 Jul 2013 • PB £24.99/ $40.00

A radical shift is taking place in the way that society is thinking about cities. From this new perspective, cities are regarded not simply as spatially extended material artefacts, but as complex systems that are analogous to living organisms, exhibiting many of the same characteristics. In this title, ‘System City: Infrastructure and the spaces of flows’, Guest Editor Michael Weinstock highlights the radical change of design in our ever growing cities. With new designs based on intelligent and inhabited infrastructural systems, this book demonstrates the complex array of connections within city design and shows how cities should unite, rather than divide, urban morphological and ecological systems.
