Quality living in old age is one of the important topics of our time. Architects and builders can contribute innovative types of housing, intelligent concepts for barrier-free buildings, and advanced systems of care for people who are fragile or suffering from dementia. Intelligent design solutions can push back the limits on housing and care, on residential architecture and care facilities, on individual, collective, and assisted forms of housing, and even on the various phases of life in favor of a comprehensive trend toward integrated forms of housing.

This volume in the series Design Manuals optimizes the concept, content, and presentation of the series to improve its use by the customer. A third of the volume provides detailed expert information from around fifteen contributors, including general questions of energy management and sustainability, open space, and product design. A section of examples provides a building typology, presenting approximately forty international buildings in analyses of up to eight pages that offer exemplary solutions for multigenerational buildings, assisted living, housing for people with dementia and other special target groups, old persons’ homes, nursing homes, and integrated projects.






SELLING POINTS:

  • Substantial contributions by experts and a typology of exemplary international projects

  • Comprehensive presentation of the subject as it concerns architecture, building, open spaces, and urban planning

  • Presents forward-looking, integrated concepts and designs

The minimalist concrete architecture of Tadao Ando has roots both in Japanese traditions and in Western architecture. This book begins with both contexts: it explores how Ando unites Japanese tradition with a contemporary Western architectural idiom.

By analyzing systematically and chronologically the roots and sources that have influenced the thinking of the Pritzker Prize–winning architect, the author communicates the principles and constants to which Ando’s buildings can be traced back, and at the same time he places them in the appropriate context within the architect’s characteristic ideas and intentions.

Yann Nussaume teaches at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’architecture in Paris and is the author of numerous publications on Japanese and Chinese architecture.





SELLING POINTS:

  • Conveys knowledgeably Ando’s distinctive way of thinking and intentions

  • Written for architects as well as for a broad audience




MARKET:

Architects, students of architecture, cultural interest readers, art historians

More than any building material, light influences our well being, effects architectural qualities and stages architectural designs and surfaces. The New York-based Office for Visual Interaction (OVI) goes beyond simply illuminating buildings – the firm sees lighting as a way to actively shape space, complement architecture, integrate technology, and save energy.

The inventive lighting solutions are distinguished by a highly developed sensitivity to place and by a built-in engineering smartness rather than by a fixed style. The first monograph on this award-winning lighting design studio, explores OVi’s work through descriptive texts, lush photographs, detailed drawings, and working sketches, providing unique insight into the process of lighting design from concept to realization.

Featured projects include illumination for contemporary landmarks such as Renzo Piano’s New York Times skyscraper, Zaha Hadid’s Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art, a prototype LED streetlight for New York City, and the lighting design for Enric Miralles’ Scottish Parliament complex.





SELLING POINTS:

  • Packed with informative project documentations with images, illustrations and technical drawings

  • A process oriented handbook for architects, designers and students

This publication celebrates the third anniversary of School of Architecture at the Vienna University of Applied Arts. 99+ is a collection of selected projects by students in the classes of Zaha Hadid, Greg Lynn and Wolf D. Prix between 2004-08. Along with their design studios, the three star architects Zaha Hadid, Greg Lynn and Wolf D. Prix give students the opportunity of exploring the manifold cross-border possibilities the parameters of architecture offer.

The open studio structure makes it possible for students to work on the same subject from their first semester to their degree work, while simultaneously creating dynamics that aren’t possible in regular curriculum structures.

The Cross-Over Studio is also available to students as well as the three design studios. Peter Sellars, Kivi Sotamaa and Hernan Diaz Alonso have successfully developed new architecture typologies with the students here.

The monograph is a collection of exciting projects that are characterized by their innovative design and their professional, appealing presentation. The images serve as inspiration and give us hope for a new, dynamic generation of architects from the heart of Europe.






SELLING POINTS:

  • Work by the students of the star architects Zaha Hadid, Greg Lynn and Wolf D. Prix

  • Exciting projects at the highest level

  • Perfect presentation with fascinating architecture graphics and illustrations
