Contemporary Theory of Conservation

Written By Munoz-Vinas, Salvador
Published By Elsevier Science & Technology in 2005

[Description] Classical theories of conservation are well known in the heritage community, but in the last two decades thinking has shifted, and classical theory has faced increasing criticism. Contemporary Theory of Conservation brings together current ideas in conservation theory, presenting a structured, coherent analysis of the subject for the first time. This engaging and readable text is split into 3 parts. The first, Fundamentals of conservation, addresses the identity of conservation itself, and problems arising when classical conservation theories are applied. The second part, Questioning classical theories, delves deeper into the criticism of classical ideas such as reversibility. This leads on to the creation of new paradigms such as sustainability, which are covered in the final part of the book, Conservation ethics.



Craftsman, The

Written By Sennett, Richard
Published By Yale University Press in 2008

Designerly Ways of Knowing

Written By Cross, Nigel
Published By Springer in 2006

[Description] The concept of ‘designerly ways of knowing’ emerged in the late 1970s in association with the development of new approaches in design education. Professor Nigel Cross first clearly articulated this concept in a paper called ‘Designerly Ways of Knowing’ which was published in the journal Design Studies in 1982. Since then, the field of study has grown considerably, as both design education and design research have developed together into a new discipline of design. This book provides a unique insight into a field of study with important implications for design research, education and practice. Professor Nigel Cross is one of the most internationally-respected design researchers and this book is a revised and edited collection of key parts of his published work from the last quarter century. Designerly Ways of Knowing traces the development of a research interest in articulating and understanding the nature of design cognition, and the concept that designers (whether architects, engineers, product designers, etc.) have and use particular ‘designerly’ ways of knowing and thinking.

[Description] Living Systems surveys a wide array of innovative approaches to material technologies within the field of landscape architecture. The selected projects and materials exhibit a contemporary demand for technological landscapes and the collaboration between designers, engineers, scientists and ecologists. The book proposes a synthesis between technology and theory, focusing on growth, flow, metabolism, climate, and atmospheric phenomena. Projects and materials are cross-referenced according to performance criteria, processes, and properties. Each of the 36 international projects and 23 material technologies is presented with drawing details and construction photographs. Descriptions of key processes and adaptive qualities provide an analysis of the various complex systems featured, such as vertical growth structures, flood prevention, stormwater infiltration and erosion control. Projects featured include works by West8, GROSS.MAX, Weiss-Manfredi Architects, Field Operations, Kathryn Gustafson, and Vogt Landschaftarchitekten.


Modern Architectural Theory: A Historical Survey, 1673-1968

Written By Mallgrave, Harry Francis
Published By Cambridge University Press in 2005
Open now »

[Description] Modern Architectural Theory is the first book to provide a comprehensive survey of architectural theorem, primarily in Europe and the United States, during three centuries of development. In this synthetic overview, Harry Mallgrave contextualizes architectural discourse within its social and political atmosphere. He explores the philosophical and conceptual evolution of its ideas, the relation of theory to the practice of building, and most importantly, the words of the architects themselves as they contentiously shaped their particular niche of Western civilization. He also examines the compelling currents of French rationalist and British empirical thought, the radical reformation of theory during the Enlightenment, the intellectual ambition and historicist debates of the nineteenth century, and the distinctive varieties of modern theory in the twentieth century up to the profound social upheaval of the 1960s. Modern Architectural Theory challenges many assumptions about architectural modernism and uncovers many new dimensions of the debates about modernism.

Sketching User Experiences: Getting the Design Right and the Right Design

Written By Buxton, Bill
Published By Elsevier Science & Technology in 2007
Open now »

[Description] This book covers sketching and early prototyping design methods for future products like cell phones that communicate with each other and other embedded systems, "smart" appliances and things you only dream about. It promotes methods that help in the creativity as well as prototyping of new design, including sketching methods. It features full-colour production and chock full of case studies, examples, exercises and projects, and access to video clips that demonstrate some of the principles. Hardly a day goes by that we don't see an announcement for a new product or technology that is going to make our lives easier, solve our problems, or make the world a better place. The reality is that few of these products survive, much less deliver on their promise. But are we learning from these expensive mistakes? This book's goal is to inspire and encourage HCl and other design professionals to try new methods, test themselves with the exercises and projects and see an improvement in innovative interaction design that works. The result is a group of methods and process that successfully work in both HCl and design.; This helps to give these fields a unity as well as a uniquely innovative way to design user experience.
