Peter Oborn 9781119974161 April-13 • HB £49.99 / $80.00

A highly visual and analytical account of masterplanning worldwide This book provides important analysis of major urban extensions and masterplans, featuring projects from the 19th century to the present. As well as providing high quality graphical representations of its subjects, this book gives an important new emphasis on the processes and structures that influence the form of these projects. It is highlighted whether a masterplan has been privately or publicly funded, if it has been planned as a single entity, or through multiple subdivisions of land, and if it has been initiated by an individual landowner or by the city through expropriation. Each project chapter concludes with the question of sustainability, focusing on major environmental issues. • A visual treatment of the subject, featuring over 450 specially drawn scale drawings and photographs • An important new emphasis on development processes and how they have influenced the form of masterplans • Intriguing international examples • Important historic examples, such as London’s Belgravia and Paris’ Opéra development and Stuyvesant Town in New York • Contemporary projects such as Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires, Downtown Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the New Central Business District in Beijing

The Urban Towers Handbook Eric Firley and Julie Gimbal

The most distinctive and innovative new landmark in the Middle East Built for the Abu Dhabi Investment Council, the two 25-storey towers provide Abu Dhabi with a unique gateway to the city. Though built out of glass and steel, they represent a complete departure from other contemporary high-rise buildings. Modern and pioneering in their use of the most up-todate technologies, they have been conceived to be entirely rooted in the local culture and environment. This publication is entirely centred on the design and delivery of Al Bahr Towers. • Highly visual with 300 colour images specifically commissioned by Christian Richters • Illustrated introduction by the architectural correspondent of The Financial Times, Edwin Heathcote, providing an engaging account of the background behind the building: the client, the circumstances behind the commission and its most significant architectural precedents • Expert insight into the history and philosophy of Islamic architecture by Professor Eric Ormsby of The Institute of Ismaili Studies • A unique description of the design and procurement of these ground-breaking structures is provided by architectural author Edward Denison

Urban Design Ecologies Reader Brian McGrath 9780470974056 November-12 • PB £29.99 / $50.00

The discipline of urban design is undergoing a rapid expansion and realignment. It is experiencing a shift from a profession dominated by architects and planners, directed at urban development, to a more expansive set of practices engaging new forms of social and environmental ecologies, as cities worldwide adapt to economic restructuring, mass migrations and climate change. Bringing together classic and new texts from the last 40 years, this AD Reader: • Focuses attention on the critical tools needed to understand how cities have been designed and constructed and then changed over time • Enables new ways of envisioning how cities must be conceived and adapted in the future to the dual conditions of rapid urbanisation and economic restructuring, coupled with unpredictable environmental conditions due to climate change • Places an emphasis on urban design and the ecological, bringing together key articles that point the way forward for reconciling the often conflicting concerns of urbanism and environmentalism

In this Urban Design Ecologies Reader twenty-three texts are organised into four distinct sections, covering metropolitan architecture, the sprawling megalopolis, the megacity and the recently emerging metacity

The Making of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park John C. Hopkins, Peter Neal 9781119940692 November-12 • HB £49.99 / $80.00

An innovative blueprint for contemporary urban park design The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is recognised as an exemplar of sustainable development for the 21st century. As a primary legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Park was conceived as a new piece of sustainable city, transforming a largely neglected, contaminated, post-industrial district into a new community for up to 20,000 residents. • Written by those at the heart of the project • Provides the only authoritative account of the planning, design and construction of the Park • Begins with the bid to host the games, setting out its historical, philosophical and physical context • Describes the strategic fit within the Thames Gateway, Lower Lea Valley and Stratford City • Explains how One Planet Living principles developed by WWF and BioRegional underpinned sustainability throughout the project • Concludes with a ‘Walk in Park’ capturing its essence for both Games and Legacy • Richly illustrated • 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

Scarcity Architecture in an Age of Depleting Resources e Architectural Design

Jon Goodbun, Jeremy Till, Deljana Iossifova 9781119973621 • July-12 PB • £24.99 / $40.00

Reconfigure design practice in radically new, postsustainable directions Leading analysts of all the major resource domains – water, food, material, energy and finance – are all telling us that our global industrial growth models, driven by speculation on unstable financial markets, are taking the planet to the brink of chronic scarcity. In architecture, concerns about depleting material and energy sources have largely been centred on the more emollient category of ‘sustainability’. In the next decade, as the situation becomes more pressing, architects and designers will need to confront the reality of scarcity. There are many ways that architecture, urban planning and design research can tackle such issues; two of many covered in this title are: • Developing new forms of analysis of global flows and scarcities • Specific local and global design-based solutions

Sun, Wind, and Light Architectural Design Strategies, 3rd Edition G. Z. Brown, Mark DeKay 9780470945780 • April-13 PB • £57.50 / $85.00

Architects must be able to consider the relationship between the form of a building and the energy it uses at the beginning of the designing process. Taking advantage of the natural forces of sun for heating, wind for cooling and daylight for natural lighting are essential to «sustainable design» and energy efficient buildings. Using hundreds of illustrations and companion CD-ROM, this book provides practical strategies that give the designer the tools they need to make energy efficient buildings.

Asif Syed 9780470546031 • July-12 HB • £57.50 / $85.00

In this timely guide, one of the world’s leaders in advanced building technology implementation shows architects and engineers proven and practical methods for implementing these technologies in sustainably-designed buildings. This book offers clear and workable solutions for implementing solar energy, radiant heating and cooling floors, displacement ventilation, net zero, and more. It provides helpful tips and suggestions for architects and engineers to work together on implementing these technologies, along with many innovative possibilities for developing a truly integrated design.

This book 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. How can a long-established, highly protected and even cherished city, like London, continue to renew and expand?

9780470590898 January-12 • HB £57.50 / $85.00

In this ground-breaking guide, François Lévy demonstrates that sustainable design has an even greater relative impact on small-building performance than large, and that BIM’s well-known efficiencies lower overall costs at any scale and can be easily applied to sustainable design. Using real-world examples, this practical desktop resource presents proven methods for using BIM to deal with such essential sustainability issues as natural ventilation for cooling, passive solar heating, and more. This is a must-have resource for architects, engineers, students, and construction professionals involved in sustainable design projects. FRANÇOIS LÉVY
