The dual revolutions of the worldwide economic climate and omnipresent web connectivity have had a profoundimpact on architectural layout. Geographical gaps and, in lots of instances, architecture's tie to the equipped international itself have evaporated within the face of our new networked society. shape is now conceptualized by way of architects, engineers, and artists as reflexive, contingent, and dispensed. The accrued essays in Network Practices trap this distinctive second within the evolution of layout, the place crossing disciplines, spatial interactions, and layout practices are all poised to be reimagined. With contributions through architects, artists, laptop programmers, and theorists and texts by way of Reinhold Martin, Dagmar Richter, Michael Speaks, and others, Network Practices deals an interdisciplinary analysisof how artwork, technology, and structure are responding to quickly altering cellular, instant, and information-embedded environments.

One of many few really visionary architects of large-scale commissions operating this present day, Thom Mayne’s influential company Morphosis, based within the early Nineteen Seventies, has maintained an avant-garde presence between modern structure agencies, at the same time it has garnered high-profile, big-budget commissions from all over the world. due to the fact that Rizzoli released quantity I of the Morphosis sequence in 1989, the Los Angeles–based company has persisted to push its complex modernism into new territories. within the culture of its 4 visually groundbreaking predecessors, this 5th quantity packs 500 illustrations right into a complete journey of Morphosis’s task. New works lined in quantity V contain Cal Trans Headquarters in l. a. (2004); the San Francisco Federal workplace development (2006); the Wayne L. Morse usa Courthouse in Eugene, Oregon (2006); and the collage of Cincinnati scholar game heart (2006). tasks in development, akin to the recent educational construction for the Cooper Union in ny (expected final touch 2008) and the Phare Tower for l. a. security, France (2012), can also be featured.

An firm structure attempts to explain and regulate an organisation’s constitution, techniques, purposes, platforms and strategies in an built-in manner. The unambiguous specification and outline of parts and their relationships in such an structure calls for a coherent structure modelling language. Lankhorst and his co-authors current such an company modelling language that captures the complexity of architectural domain names and their kin and permits the development of built-in firm structure types. they supply architects with concrete tools that enhance their architectural perform. As this isn't sufficient, they also current options and heuristics for speaking with all proper stakeholders approximately those architectures. on the grounds that an structure version comes in handy not just for supplying perception into the present or destiny state of affairs yet is usually used to guage the transition from ‘as-is’ to ‘to-be’, the authors additionally describe research equipment for assessing either the qualitative effect of adjustments to an structure and the quantitative features of architectures, comparable to functionality and value matters. The modelling language offered has been confirmed in perform in lots of real-life case stories and has been followed by way of The Open crew as a world commonplace. So this e-book is a perfect better half for firm IT or enterprise architects in in addition to for computing device or administration technological know-how scholars learning the sector of company structure.

Dass Essen auch Kultur ist, ist längst im Denken der Gesellschaft verankert. Zahllose Legenden ranken sich um die verschiedensten Lebensmittel. Doch dass so vieles davon designte Objekte sind, ist kaum bekannt. Fischstäbchen, Schokolade, Gummibärchen aber auch Brezel oder Semmel sind bewusst "designed". Dieses Buch widmet sich ausführlich diesem bislang unbeachteten Thema. Anhand verschiedener Designkomponenten, wie Teilbarkeit, Oberflächengestaltung oder Herstellungstechnik analysieren und beschreiben die Autoren die gängigsten und erfolgreichsten Nahrungsmittel der Gegenwart. Historische Zusammenhänge, metaphorische Bedeutungen und Legenden runden diese europaweit erste Auseinandersetzung mit meals layout ab. Zudem zeigen Sonja Stummerer und Martin Hablesreiter auf, wie shape, Farbe, Geruch, Konsistenz, Geräusch, Herstellungstechnik und Geschichte das layout von Lebensmitteln beeinflussen. Dank der expressiven Bildsprache von Ullrike Köb und der zeitlosen graphischen Gestaltung entstand ein eindrucksvoller Bildband zum Schmökern, Nachschlagen oder Verschenken.
