Shigeru Ban : material, structure and space / Makabe, Tomoharu

Shigeru Ban : material, structure and space

Makabe, Tomoharu

Editeur: Toto, 2017
Cote de rangement: 72.031.1 MAK B

Résumé:
Shigeru Ban has earned much praise for his wide-ranging activities and innovative approach to addressing contemporary problems through architecture and design, such as using recycled cardboard tubes as a structural material to provide housing for disaster victims. Besides his dedication to humanitarian efforts, Ban’s interest in materials expresses his minimalist ideology, one that often leads him to choose existing materials and techniques over state-of-the-art solutions. Ban was involved in selecting the more than 100 important works in this publication, divided into five categories, that together reflect a clear departure from other architects of his generation.

Multi-unit housing in urban cities : from 1800 to present day / Chey, Katy

Multi-unit housing in urban cities : from 1800 to present day

Chey, Katy

Editeur: Routledge, 2018
Cote de rangement: 728.20 CHE

Résumé:
This title investigates the development of multi-unit housing typologies that were predominant in a particular city from the 1800s to the present day. It emphasises the importance of understanding the direct connection between housing and dwelling in the context of a city, and the manner in which the city is an instructional indication of how a housing typology is embodied. The case studies presented offer an insight into why a certain housing type flourished in a specific city and the variety span across cities in the world where distinct housing types have prevailed. It also pursues how housing types developed, evolved, and helped define the city, looks into how dwellers inhabited their dwellings, and analyses how the housing typologies correlate in a contemporary context.

Résumé:
Situated in the second semester of the three-year Master of Architecture Program at the School of Constructed Environments (New York), the housing studio engages a series of formal, social, and architectural issues in a formative culmination of the first year sequence of this program. Beyond the important learning objectives related to history, precedent, sustainability, design, and deep collaboration that are delivered in this course there are other, succinct aims of this project that are injected into the SCE’s pedagogy early and vitally. This studio posits that community, site, and density are intertwined within our local fabric of New York City. Based in Chelsea the specific project given to this group of students demanded that they address complex issues related to public health, the defensibility and flexibility of civic space, and the vast undertaking of revising and re-visioning public housing and NYCHA’s aging structures more specifically.

Architecture and the welfare state

Swenarton, Mark - Avermaete, Tom - van den Heuvel, Dirk

Editeur: Routledge, 2015
Cote de rangement: 72.030.15 SWE

Résumé:
In the decades following World War Two, and in part in response to the Cold War, governments across Western Europe set out ambitious programmes for social welfare and the redistribution of wealth that aimed to improve the everyday lives of their citizens. Many of these welfare state programmes - housing, schools, new towns, cultural and leisure centres - involved not just construction but a new approach to architectural design, in which the welfare objectives of these state-funded programmes were delineated and debated. The impact on architects and architectural design was profound and far-reaching, with welfare state projects moving centre-stage in architectural discourse not just in Europe but worldwide. This is the first book to explore the architecture of the welfare state in Western Europe from an international perspective. With chapters covering Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden and the UK, the book explores the complex role played by architecture in the formation and development of the welfare state in both theory and practice.

Résumé:
Cardboard! It's low cost, readily available, familiar, portable, and recyclable, but something that's better than all of those qualities put together is the ease with which it can be used.

Chapters include Architecture, Interiors, Furniture, Products, Art/Installations, Crafts/Toys and there is an Index of designers and artists.

Résumé:
Superdesigner Kenya Hara, the founder of the Nippon Design Center's Hara Design Institute, is curating a rather interesting cross-border exhibition called "Senseware." Held at Israel's Design Museum Holon, the exhibit defines Senseware as "matter that stirs the human creative instinct and awakens the desire to make things." Explains Hara : the aim of this exhibition is to deliberately bring a broad sweep of creators and technology people into contact with attractive new artificial fibers, encouraging them to think of applications that make the benefits of the material visible. [The exhibit] attempts to show ideas for the future of manufacturing, exhibiting new environmental membranes derived from artificial fibers in order to share them with the world at large.

Résumé:
It was September 1972. Five British designers, me being one of them, had just formed the Pentagram design consultancy in London. One of our clients, Reuters, had sent me on an assignment to New York where I commissioned Jon Naar to take some photographs of Times Square where Reuter's news service featured. I also needed some photographs of pigeons and driving around New York, I was stuck by the sight of the new expression of Graffiti, spreading like some organic growth throughout the island. Jon explained that it had only recently made its debut in the city amongst great consternation by the public and the authorities, which were determined to eradicate it. It seemed to me that something was taking place that was of great social significance and I immediately saw the need to document it before it disappeared. I suggested the idea to Jon and invited him to join me in this venture. I returned to New York in January 1973 and for the next three weeks Jon and I toured the city recording the work and meeting and interviewing the kids behind it all.
