This book aims at finding some answers to the questions: What is the influence of humans in controlling CAD and how much is human in control of its surroundings? How far does our reach as humans really go? Do the complex algorithms that we use for city planning nowadays live up to their expectations and do they offer enough quality? How much data do we have and can we control? Are today's inventions reversing the humanly controlled algorithms into a space where humans are controlled by the algorithms? Are processing power, robots for the digital environment and construction in particular not only there to rediscover what we already knew and know or do they really bring us further into the fields of constructing and architecture? The chapter authors were invited speakers at the 6th Symposium "Design Modelling Symposium: Humanizing Digital Reality", which took place in Ensa-Versailles, France from 16 - 20 September 2017.

Prototyping for Architects (Paperback): Mark Burry, Jane Burry Prototyping for Architects (Paperback)

Prototyping is an essential part of the designer's repertoire. Designers prototype their projects to test them, structurally, aesthetically, technically. Whether the prototype works or not is not the point: prototyping is the revelatory process through which the designer gains insight. There are three reasons why contemporary prototyping techniques are transforming the way architects design and build: 1) at a miniature scale, prototyping aids the architect in the presentation to clients of complex spatial ideas; 2) prototyping empowers the architect-designer to test and prove a building's feasibility, leading to more open-minded construction solutions; 3) whether additive (3D printing) or subtractive (robotic milling), prototyping can lead to unexpected and exciting new possibilities within design as a whole, across design disciplines, thus blurring the boundaries between them in highly creative ways. The book has four sections: an introduction that charts the rise of prototyping in design history, more specifically in architecture; an overview of techniques; a survey section featuring 30 projects, each presented through texts drawn from first-hand interviews, on-site photographs and drawings; and a reference section, which includes a glossary of technical terms.

R2,900 R2,748 Discovery Miles 27 480 Save R152 (5%) Special order

The book presents the proceedings of Rob/Arch 2016, the third international conference on robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design. The work contains a wide range of contemporary topics, from methodologies for incorporating dynamic material feedback into existing fabrication processes, to novel interfaces for robotic programming, to new processes for large-scale automated construction. The latent argument behind this research is that the term `file-to-factory' must not be a reductive celebration of expediency but instead a perpetual challenge to increase the quality of feedback between design, matter, and making.

The New Mathematics of Architecture (Paperback): Jane Burry, Mark Burry The New Mathematics of Architecture (Paperback)
Jane Burry, Mark Burry
R505 R410 Discovery Miles 4 100 Save R95 (19%) Special order

New in paperback, The New Mathematics of Architecture is a survey of the most advanced contemporary architectural projects in the world that utilize new applications of mathematics for the digital age. From chaos to topology, from optimization to datascapes, architects have been designing - and constructing - complex, sublime and beautiful buildings that change the way we perceive major structures. This one-of-a-kind survey of 46 international projects, compiled and written by leading experts on architectural mathematics, offers a thorough overview of how recent developments in maths and physics are being applied to architecture through accessible illustrations, lucid text and hands-on experience. Case studies are presented in detail with a project profile, and include Norman Foster's British Museum roof and Gehry Partners' Disney Concert Hall, as well as projects by such renowned architects as Minifie Nixon, Kohn Pedersen Fox and Daniel Libeskind. At a time when architects have fewer opportunities to build and more time to consider the future of architecture, this carefully researched book offers students and practitioners new ways of thinking about the future of designing and building. `Vital to the future of architectural dialect ... an awesome turn-on' - Architects' Journal `Inside the subdued cover of this modestly sized book you will find analysis, description and beautiful photographs ... if architecture is like frozen music then this is a big mash-up of Prog Rock and Stockhausen. And that cannot be a bad thing' - RIAS Quarterly
