Photovoltaics And Architecture

Photovoltaics And Architecture

Editors : Randall Thomas and Max Fordham | Published by Taylor & Francis | Publication date : April 2001

ISBN : 0415231825 | PDF Format, 168 pages | English | Original File Size : 8051 KB | Compressed File Size : 7698 KB



Overview :
In energy source terms, if we call the 19th century was the age of coal and the 20th of oil, the 21st will be the age of the sun.
The principal reason for this is that photovoltaic (PV) systems which produce electricity directly from solar radiation are becoming more widespread as their advantages become apparent and their costs fall. PVs are an advanced materials technology that will help us design buildings which are environmentally responsible, responsive and exciting.

This new guide provides an overview of how PVs work and how they are incorporated in the design of buildings, it gives the information that designers and, in particular, architects, need. It is for those who wish to assess the feasibility of using PVs in a specific project, for those who have already decided to use PVs and want to know how to do so and for those with the foresight to want to plan their buildings for PVs in the future.

Understanding Architecture Through Drawing




Brian Edwards - Understanding Architecture Through Drawing | Taylor and Francis | 2008 | 273 pages | PDF | RAR | 22 MB

REALLY HOT! | Советуем всем, кто желает представить свои проекты и идеи в "лучшем свете"

This second edition is fully revised and updated and includes new chapters on sustainability, history and archaeology, designing through drawing and drawing in architectural practice. The book introduces design and graphic techniques aimed to help designers increase their understanding of buildings and places through drawing. For many, the camera has replaced the sketchbook, but here the author argues that freehand drawing as a means of analyzing and understanding buildings develops visual sensitivity and awareness of design.

By combining design theory with practical lessons in drawing, Understanding Architecture Through Drawing encourages the use of the sketchbook as a creative and critical tool. The book is highly illustrated and is an essential manual on freehand drawing techniques for students of architecture, landscape architecture, town and country planning and urban design.

Author : Robert Benaim | Published by Taylor & Francis | Publication date : December 2007 | ISBN : 0415235995 | PDF Format, 602 pages | English | Original File Size : 15004 KB | Compressed File Size : 13930 KB



Overview :
Examining the fundamental differences between design and analysis, the author explores the close relationship between aesthetic and technical creativity and the importance of the intuitive, more imaginative qualities of design that should be employed by every designer when designing a structure. Aiding designers of concrete bridges in developing an intuitive understanding of structural action, this book thereby encourages innovation and the development of engineering architecture.
Simple, relevant calculation techniques that should precede any detailed analysis are summarized. Construction methods used to build concrete bridge decks and substructures are detailed and direct guidance on the choice and the sizing of different types of concrete bridge deck is given.
In addition guidance is provided on solving recurring difficult problems of detailed design and realistic examples of the design process are provided. This book enables concrete bridge designers to broaden their scope in design and provides an analysis of the necessary calculations and methods
