Collection: Kanceláře

Kniha Collection: Kanceláře sa zameriava na moderné kancelárske priestory. Jej hlavným cieľom je predstaviť súčasné trendy, ktoré prostredníctvom atraktívneho dizajnu a vyspelého technologického vybavenia umožňujú vytvoriť príťažlivé a pre užívateľa príjemné pracovné prostredie. V 90. rokoch umožnil rozvoj počítačových technológií vznik nových kancelárskych foriem, ako sú neteritoriálne kancelárie s prípojnými bodmi a zdieľanými pracovnými stolmi, centrami pre obchodníkov a pracovnými priestormi, pripomínajúcimi spoločenskú miestnosť. Kompetenčné centrá rozdeľujú oblasti podľa funkcií a reverzibilné kancelárie môžu byť za krátky čas prispôsobené akémukoľvek štýlu (just-in-time office). Zistenie, že spontánne stretávanie sa v neformálnych zónach a náhodné rozhovory môžu efektívne urýchliť pracovné procesy prostredníctvom „krátkych spojení" a spontánnych výmen informácií, uvoľnilo strnulý teritoriálny charakter pracovných priestorov. Výsledkom bolo, že dizajnéri dostali pri konštrukcii kancelárskych budov a priestorov jedinečnú príležitosť prepojiť funkčnosť s čistým štýlom. Či už sa usilujú o minimalistický, rafinovaný alebo bezstarostnejší efekt, majú voľnosť vytvoriť inšpiratívne vnútorné prostredie. Collection: Kanceláře predstavuje najinšpiratívnejšie architektonické inovácie na tomto poli, od bunkových a open space kancelárií po kancelárske krajiny a biznis kluby, od stiesnených úradov s dvoma miestnosťami po rozľahlé 100-poschodové kancelárske budovy. Všetky tieto trendy sú tu zachytené na mnohých príkladoch. Aj zdanlivo zastarané typy kancelárií sú tu vďaka lesku nového moderného dizajnu úplne premenené – sú to miesta, kde je jednoducho radosť pracovať.

Lacná kniha Contemporary Museums (-70%)

Museums are some of the great architectural hallmarks of any place. Since the discovery of the Bilbao Effect, triggered at the end of the last century by the Frank O. Gehrys building, new museums have been emerging all over the world. The volume presents the most varied forms of exhibition buildings of the last decade and reveals their varied spatial and architectural concepts: from the white cube idea that exists chiefly to display the exhibit itself, to a flamboyant freestanding structure, which enriches the image of the city and involves the works in its dynamic spatial configuration. A broad diversity of museums is considered: museums of businesses and institutes, of technology and toys, of literature and architecture. It is the art museums, however, which represent the principle focus: from collections of the old masters, handed down through generations, to small, private collections of contemporary art. The texts focus on the architecture and design of each museum as well as the collection housed within it.

Water is the scarcest of all natural resources. It is a global challenge to develop, produce and deploy technologies, systems and products for sustainable water consumption. The model for this approach is the world leader GROHE, which has been workin g for some time in the field of ecological solutions for water resources. The GROHE idea is not simply to deal with the economical and functional side of water supply but also to consider the pleasurable aspects of water and to reflect that considera tion with the high design requirements of many architects. This volume presents buildings of different typologies with GROHE water technology solutions. The book also features interviews and essays by experts who explain the current state of sustaina ble water use water developments as well as the interaction of water technology and design.

The greening of faades with plants gives a piece of nature back to the city. But a green faade is much more than a charming view: Thanks to its insulating effect, it evens out extreme swings in temperature, protects against UV radiation and improve s sound insulation. In that regard one does not have to always rely on the usual ivy. Other evergreen or fruit bearing plants and even exotic flowers can be used as faade decoration. In that way varied and creative greening can be created which lend a colorful aesthetic tone to the cityscape. The 50 projects presented here give an overview of this current trend in landscape architecture.

Automobile Architecture

The automobile has shaped the appearance of our streets for 100 years now. At the same building types have been created to serve it. Parking garages and gas stations as new species of architecture and showrooms whose exhibition spaces and display win dows are markedly different from the usual businesses have decisively changed the cities. This book is dedicated to this type of architecture, showing esthetic and technical solutions of the past few years. Not a few architects have been unmistakable car freaks (Frank Lloyd Wright), or been occupied with the automobile (Le Corbusier: Maison Citrohan), or have actually designed cars (Walter Gropius for Adler). This fascination of the profession can also be seen in the architecture built for the a utomobile today.

500 x Art in public

Works of art make a substantial contribution to cultural identification. When they are placed in a public place this function is enhanced. However the artworks also acknowledge other tasks: they figuratively announce content in their traditional role, standing as the image of a ruler or at least serve as decoration, while in the Modern period they become increasingly space defining or shaping. In this volume around 150 works present the history of this species of art. By referring to important contemporary works, the development of contemporary art in public places during the last decades, which dominates the volume with about 350 examples, can be traced. Succinct texts locating the work, the artist and the style, concentrate on what is special about the works and explain the effect they have every day on passers-by according to Paul Watzlawick’s axiom that „One can not not communicate“.

Pharmacies constitute a special form of commercial architecture. The market for medicines, which is heavily regulated in most countries, has led to a veritable competition of the “atmosphere of space“, since where product and price can no longer provide a competitive advantage, customer loyalty must be created with other means. In addition to professional competence and familiarity with the customers, that becomes above all the ambiance. That in turn translates to the modern and hygienic, together with a friendly and assuring spatial experience. The selected examples show the design sophistication with which pharmacies today, from a functional as well as atmospheric standpoint, set themselves apart from the historical chemists’ shelves – and the competition.

Light in Architecture

Light is the prerequisite for spatial perception, which is why it is an integral component of architecture. Light design in architecture has become more lively and also more colourful in the last few years. The projects selected here show how good architecture is improved with the right light. With interior design, the purpose of the introduction of natural light and the use of artificial light is to create a spatial experience: certain areas are accentuated, spatial units are defined and differing atmospheres are

Passive Houses

Sustainable livingErscheinungsjahr: 2012w. 380 col. ill.Abmessungen: 190 mm x 250 mmVon Uffelen, Chris vanWer heute ein Haus baut, steht in der Regel immer auch vor der Frage nach dessen Energieeffizienz. Unabhängig von verbindlichen nationalen Vorschriften und optionalen Zertifikaten hat sich ein genereller Konsens von Passivhaus herausgebildet. Innerhalb von wenigen Jahren hat sich dieser Baustandard weit verbreitet. Je nach Klimazone fordern Passivhäuser ganz unterschiedliche Techniken, Eingriffe und Maßnahmen. Diese haben sich inzwischen von dem einst recht uniformen Erscheinungsbild des Passivhauses gelöst und sind nun in ganz unterschiedlich anmutenden Bauten zu finden. Diese Monografie stellt rund 60 Einfamilienhäuser in Passivhausbauweise vor und zeigt die Vielfalt an wunderbarer nachhaltiger Architektur.

Like once the main towers of the cathedrals, skyscrapers are the dominant landmarks in the cityscape of today and thereby one of the most prestigious building assignments of creative architects. The design freedom of the contour and the plastic volume of the blob have long since superseded the purely orthogonal towers of the past. A global view to the most significant projects of recent years.
