Computing the Environment: Digital Design Tools for Simulation and Visualisation of Sustainable Architecture

Part of the AD Smart series which focuses on the application of new technologies in architecture, Computing the Environment presents practical workflows and guidance for designers to get feedback on their design using digital design tools on environmental performance. Starting with an extensive survey into what top international offices are currently using in their design projects, this book presents detailed descriptions of the tools, algorithms, and workflows used and discusses the theories that underlie these methods.

Containing project examples from Transsolar Klimaengineering, Buro Happold´s SMART Group, Behnish Behnisch Architects, Thomas Herzog and Autodesk Research, these are contextualized with quotes and references to key thinkers in this field such as Eric Winsberg, Andrew Marsh, Michelle Addington and Ali Malkawi.

It is a rare book that captures the zeitgeist of a particular period, and a rare writer who can present that spirit through references that range from art history to engineering, from architectural theory to pop culture. British-born author, critic, and cultural commentator Reyner Banham is generally regarded by many as the finest architecture and design critic of his generation, if not of all time.

The Largest Art: A Measured Manifesto for a Plural Urbanism Book

A manifesto for designing cities – Architectural Publication by MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, USA

MIT professor’s new book calls for a more pluralistic, democratic vision of the city.

“The city is a people’s art, a shared experience,” a Philadelphia architect and planner named Edmund Bacon once wrote, adding that any urban designer’s job was to “conceive an idea, implant it, and nurture its growth in the collective minds of the community.”
