Transparent architecture by Gordon Gilbert( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compilation of work by Architect Gordon Gilbert explores the idea of transparency in architecture, ranging from an open physical transparency, to clarity of structure, to the dematerialization of the physical object, and further to evolving and expanding states of architectural awareness. This exploration is facilitated through a revealing juxtaposition of experimental drawing, subliminal texts, and constructed work

An 'artist whose profession is architecture', captures 16 buildings' dynamic in space, emphasising the importance of hand drawings in a creative process which is becoming ever more software-based 'Hand drawings help to channel the vague ponderings of the mind into visual images of a germinating concept. It is then up to the eyes to trace and decode its meaning, ' says Zvi Hecker in this new collection. Naturally that's why sketches were always important and intriguing as they followed one's mind. These days a lot of architects think with the digital mouse in hand, while using software that quickly facilitates a buildable appeal of almost any design, while there is a great danger in shortening the design process and eliminating the core moments that lead to good architecture. Has the assessment of thoughts visually disappeared from the architect's design process? Are a lot of architects rushing towards the end game dropping the necessary middle process of design? What will happen to the intuitive immediacy of the hand drawing in days where one's thoughts are channelled by software? Nevertheless, all is not as it seems; there is confidence among young architects that sketches and drawings are not dead, as some claim, since they are natural and at ease with much software, and seem to be engaged with visual thinking through a wide range of drawing applications that are wider than ever before, leading to a sophisticated architectural output. Or perhaps such antagonistic observations reflect on a clear schism between professional practice and academic circles? In the practice of today, speed and practicality are the main yardsticks, where Building Information Modelling (BIM) for architects and engineers accelerates dramatically the design process; whereas in the academic context the pursuit of a design process articulated through drawings is highly valued

Der 1931 in Krakau geborene israelische Architekt Zvi Hecker ist bekannt für seine ungewöhnlichen Bauten. Die Form seiner Bauwerke orientiert sich an deren Funktion, zugleich leitet sie sich in der Regel aus geometrischen Prinzipien und mathematischen Gesetzen her. Ein signifikantes Beispiel für Heckers Stil ist die 1991?95 entstandene Heinz-Galinski-Schule, eine jüdische Grundschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg. Die auffällige Form der verschiedenen, ineinandergreifenden Gebäudeteile bezieht sich auf die Metapher der Sonnenblume. Die einzelnen Wege, Höfe und Gebäude sind dabei so konstruiert, dass sie dem Sonnenlauf und den Sonnenstrahlen folgen und das einfallende Licht die Klassenräume erhellt. Von oben betrachtet, weist das Gebäude Ähnlichkeit mit einem aufgeschlagenen Buch auf. 0Der Architekturkritiker Dr. Arnt Cobbers umreißt in seiner Publikation zunächst den Lebensweg und das Wirken des in Berlin lebenden Architekten. Hecker wirkte nicht nur bei der Stadtplanung für Tel Aviv, Montreal und Philadelphia mit, sondern entwarf darüber hinaus ab 1960 mehrere Verwaltungs-, Wohnungs- und Kulturgebäude vor allem in Israel, aber auch in den Niederlanden, Kanada und im Iran. Im Fokus des neuen Bandes der Serie?Architekten und Baumeister in Berlin? steht das Gebäude der Heinz-Galinski-Schule, für das Hecker 1995 den Deutschen Kritikerpreis für Architektur bekam. Mit vielen Abbildungen, Skizzen und Simulationen angereichert, bietet die handliche Publikation einen informativen Einblick in das gesamte OEuvre des international renommierten Architekten Zvi Hecker
