Breaking Ground Architecture by Women
Breaking Ground Architecture by Women
'Would you still call me a diva if I were a man?' asked Zaha Hadid, challenging as she did so, more than 100 years of stereotypes about female architects. A century in which women were refused entry to architecture schools, were denied degrees when they had completed courses, a century in which even now, women occupy just ten per cent of the highest-ranking jobs in architecture firms. In contrast, BREAKING GROUND is a pioneering, even essential, celebration of incredible architecture designed by women. Featuring more than 150 architects and buildings, and spanning the last 100 years, BREAKING GROUND is both a glorious visual manifesto and a timely record of the extraordinary contribution female architects have made to the profession.

Brick A World History
Brick A World History
This totally original architecture book - the first ever comprehensive study of brick - follows the story of brick from 5,000 bc to its use in building today, via the vast baths and basilicas of ancient Rome, through the wonders of Gothic brick in Germany, the majestic temples of Pagan and Mughal mosques in Iran, to its modern revival. Marvellously illustrated with spectacular, specially-taken photographs, Brick is at once an historical account of how bricks have been employed by architects of every period, a technical survey of brickmaking and bricklaying, and an essay in architectural and cultural history. The authors have applied their expert visual and technical knowledge to more than one hundred themes, from bricks in ancient Egypt to their distinctive use by such modern masters as Louis Kahn, Alvar Aalto and Renzo Piano. Great works of engineering - viaducts, tunnels and bridges - are given prominence alongside great cathedrals and country houses, temples and mosques, testifying to the incredible versatility and importance of bricks and brickwork.

Contemporary Color Design
Contemporary Color Design
Color Design deals with the deliberate use of color as an essential element of interior and exterior design. The projects presented here document very different perceptions and approaches. The book - literally - presents a colorful mixture of international architects and their projects: self-confident statements, stimulating food for thought, unhibited experiments, concepts that are humerous and full of life, as well as reserved approaches that are effective and set specific color accents. The projects are listed in alphabetical order of the respective architects and designers. An index with contact information is enclosed.

Drawing for Landscape Architecture
Drawing for Landscape Architecture
This essential publication reintroduces the importance of learning to `see by hand', to visualize large-scale design schemes and explain them through drawing, before using the digital tools that are so crucial to efficient and cost-effective building solutions. Combining traditional drawing techniques with those from CAD rendering, Drawing for Landscape Architecture guides practitioners from their very first impression of a site, through concept and schematic design and client presentation to construction and site drawings, concluding with two case studies that show the final result. Just as hand-drawing returns to design courses around the world, this welcome publication celebrates the best aspects of traditional techniques while incorporating them into today's digital design methods.

Grand Designs Australia 02
Grand Designs Australia 02
From a home created within an old electrical substation to another like a sprawling tent under canvas, from a home inspired by Japanese origami to another designed around a shipping container - these are the intriguing and resourceful design solutions featured in The Best of Grand Designs Volume 2, the much awaited sequel to the best-selling The Best of Grand Designs.
It features 24 inspiring homes that have featured in series six to eight of the iconic home design TV program, with projects straddling the continent, from Tasmania to Queensland, South Australia to northern NSW, in coastal, country and city locations.
As with its forerunner, the book is a tribute to Australian home owners and their architects and designers, who, undeterred by constraints such as a tight budget, a short timeline, a tricky site and heritage regulations, dared to dream and saw their grand visions become reality.
