Download or read book Modern Construction Case Studies written by Andrew Watts and published by Birkhäuser. This book was released on 2019-06-17 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Modern Construction Case Studies focuses on the interface between the design of facades, structures and environments of 12 building projects, all developed by Newtecnic. The Author compares facade technologies, particularly in the way they interface with structure and MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing services) in complex projects, to provide insights into the design process for building envelopes. Each envelope technology is described with an emphasis on one of three aspects: geometry, construction and performance. The analysis links the 12 case studies by comparing their structural and environmental performance. The aim is achieved by analyzing typical bays which are representative of each project and which illustrate the implications of using different building envelope technologies.

Book excerpt: The Roofs Handbook is a textbook for practitioners of architecture, as well as for structural and environmental engineers who wish to broaden their study. The six chapters examine roofs from the standpoint of the primary material used in their construction, from metal, glass, and concrete to timber, plastics and fabrics. Each set of three double page spreads explains a specific form of construction which is accompanied by drawn and annotated details. Throughout the book, built examples by high profile designers are used to illustrate specific principles. As it is the case in the Modern Construction Handbook the techniques described can be applied internationally.

Summary Book Review Modern Construction by Lincoln H. Forbes:

Download or read book Modern Construction written by Lincoln H. Forbes and published by CRC Press. This book was released on 2010-10-13 with total page 524 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During the past several decades, the manufacturing and service industries significantly increased their levels of productivity, quality, and profitability through the application of process improvement techniques and information technology. Unfortunately, the construction industry lags far behind in the application of performance improvement and optimization techniques, as well as its overall competitiveness. Written by Lincoln H. Forbes and Syed M. Ahmed, both highly regarded for leadership and innovation, Modern Construction: Lean Project Delivery and Integrated Practices offers cutting-edge lean tools and other productive strategies for the management of people and processes in the construction industry. Drs. Forbes and Ahmed focus mainly on lean construction methodologies, such as The Last Planner(R) System, The Lean Project Delivery System (TM), and Integrated Project Delivery(TM). The tools and strategies offered draw on the success of the world-renowned Toyota Production System (TPS) adapted to the construction environment by construction professionals and researchers involved in developing and advocating lean construction methods. The book also discusses why true lean construction can best occur when all the construction stakeholders, owners, designers, constructors, and material suppliers are committed to the concept of optimizing the flow of activities holistically while de-emphasizing their self-interest. The authors also reintroduce process improvement approaches such as TQM and Six Sigma as a foundation for the adoption of lean methodologies, and demonstrate how these methods can improve projects in a so-called traditional environment. The book integrates these methods with emerging interest in "green construction" and the use of information technology and Building Information Modeling (BIM), while recognizing the human element in relation to motivation, safety, and environmental stresses. Written specifically for professionals in an industry that desperately needs to play catch up, the book delineates cutting-edge approaches with the benefit of successful cases and explains how their deployment can improve construction performance and competitiveness.

Book excerpt: Donald Judd (1928-1994) was one of the most important exponents of American Minimal Art. Among the lesser known aspects of his work are numerous architectural drawings in which he explores the relationship between architecture and art. One particular location was of great significance to Judds's architectural work: Fort Russell, an abandoned US military base in the desert near the town of Maria, Texas. Judd bought parts of the base and systematically converted this space into one of the largest ensemble collections of contemporary art in the world. This book updates and expands on the successful Donald Judd, Architecture in Marfa, Texas (2007).This new edition presents two additional building complexes in Maria and includes a new epilogue by the author, which places Judd's architectural work in a contemporary context. Available in a new, extended edition, this is the first book to examine Judd's architectural work from the perspective of an architect Maria: a place of pilgrimage for architects, landscapers, designers and artists Historical documents, new photographs and standardized CAD drawings

Book excerpt: At Dwell, we're staging a minor revolution. We think that it's possible to live in a house or apartment by a bold modern architect, to own furniture and products that are exceptionally well designed, and still be a regular human being. We think that good design is an integral part of real life. And that real life has been conspicuous by its absence in most design and architecture magazines.
