Shaping Seattle architecture : a historical guide to the architects( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seattle's growth has been remarkable; from a population of only 3,500 in 1880 the city grew to over 500,000 in 1990, and the Puget Sound region exploded to a population of nearly three million. Shaping Seattle Architecture: A Historical Guide to the Architects focuses on those whose designs shaped the physical form of the city and region. Forty-five generously illustrated profiles of architects and firms provide an overview of Seattle's architectural history as well as a handy reference guide to the life and work of these designers." "Jeffrey Ochsner's introductory chapter summarizes the main currents of Seattle's architectural history, relating it both to the city's history and to national and international trends in architecture. Three special essays, focusing on the region's Native American architecture; on the impact of pattern books, plan books, and periodicals; and on "vernacular" and "popular" architecture - ordinary structures often built without the participation of professional designers - are valuable additions to the book. Only architects no longer actively practicing are included in the individual profiles, but an appendix providing over eighty thumbnail sketches of additional significant Seattle architects and the works for which they are most noted does include recent AIA-Seattle Medal winners. Non-Seattle architects who designed major Seattle structures are listed separately. Another appendix lists the extant buildings mentioned in the text, along with their current names and addresses, including buildings across the Northwest and elsewhere. Sections on sources of information and on researching Seattle architecture provide suggestions for finding out more about a particular architect, building, or project."--Jacket
Distant corner : Seattle architects and the legacy of H.H. Richardson by Jeffrey Karl Ochsner( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Distant corner examines the brief but powerful influence of H.H. Richardson on the building of Americas̕ cities, and his specific influence on the architects charged with rebuilding the post-fire city (June 6,1889) of Seattle. Chapters on the pre-fire city and its architecture, the technologies and tools available to designers and builders, and the rise of Richardson and his role in defining a new American architecture provide a context for examining the work of the citys̕ architects. This book describes the new post-fire commercial core and the emerging network of schools, firehouses, and other public institutions that helped define Seattles̕ neighborhoods. It closes with the sudden collapse of Seattles̕ economy in the Panic of 1893 and the ensuing depression that halted the citys̕ building boom, saw the closing of a number of architects ̕offices, and forever ended the dominance of Romanesque Revival in American architecture. The author offers an analysis of both local and national influences that shaped the architecture of the city in the 1880s and 1890s. It has much to offer those interested in Seattles̕ early history, the building of the city, and the preservation of its architecture

Furniture studio : materials, craft, and architecture by Jeffrey Karl Ochsner( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Furniture Studio explores the origins, methods, results, and influence of the unique and highly successful furniture design and fabrication studios offered by the University of Washington Department of Architecture. The furniture program, initiated by Andris Vanags, is an immersion into the role of materials, design, and making in architectural education. Students directly engage the physical properties of materials, and the knowledge gained through this engagement enriches the design and fabrication process. The experiences of its graduates reveal that the studio fosters creative thinking that truly integrates design and making. Ochsner presents historical background to shop-based courses, including furniture studio; traces the careers of four representative graduates of the program; and suggests implications from this program for architectural education and individual achievement beyond the University of Washington. Eleven students and the projects they created in the winter 2009 studio are profiled, and the book contains a fully illustrated catalogue of exemplary student projects from 1989 to the present. Illustrations and descriptions throughout the book showcase the heirloom-quality projects created by the students, many of which won awards in competitions

The shape of global wealth : slender towers from New York to Seattle by John Reynders( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

With the financialization of a major segment of the world economy, the built environment has, in turn, experienced a new level of commodification. For the super rich, residential real estate promises strong return on investment, safe sheltering of funds outside the home country, and in most cases, a view. In Manhattan this development has recently taken physical form in the very tall slender tower. With extraordinary values predicated on location, views, and exclusivity, these buildings are shaped by careful manipulation of zoning and building codes, supported by innovative structural solutions, presented in enticing renderings, all to maximize profit potential. Application of new building technologies allows designers to create buildings with very high floor areas (FAR) on very small sites while maximizing height and, consequently, unit prices. This thesis explores this phenomenon as a built manifestation of global processes and local influences based on current developments in New York City. It transfers its findings to Seattle, which is growing in prominence in the international real estate market, as a physical location in which to explore the potential opportunities allowed by local building and zoning code that could shape a new typology of ultra-luxury real estate in the city. Projecting into the near future, this project manifests itself as a slender residential tower that embodies and embraces both the legal and physical gymnastics undertaken in its design

Future-proofing : seeking resilience in the historic built environment by Brian D Rich( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Future-proofing is the process of anticipating future events and developing methods of adaptation. This process includes mitigation of negative effects while taking advantage of positive effects of changes, shocks, and stresses imposed on buildings. This thesis defines future-proofing, develops the Principles of Future-Proofing historic buildings, and creates a future-proofing rating system for evaluating interventions in historic buildings. Based upon a literature review of the use of the terms "future-proofing" and "resiliency" in the architecture, engineering, and construction [AEC] industry and other industries, attributes of "future-proof" were derived. Meaning and application of these attributes to the historic built environment are explained and developed into the 12 Principles of Future-Proofing. A rating system for future-proof capability is developed based upon existing criteria from the RELi Resilience Rating System, LEED, Envision, and other rating systems. The Future-Proofing rating system is applied to four case study restoration projects. Three "Restore the Core" projects completed between 2000 and 2010 at the Seattle campus of the University of Washington were analyzed. They were Clark Hall, Playhouse Theater, and Savery Hall. Analysis of these projects showed that objective application of the Principles was possible and complimented the subjective application of the Principles. Unexpected consistency of the rating system results was discovered to be a result of a consistent approach to the projects by the University of Washington's Capital Project Office despite the differing use, location, and nature of the projects. An additional case study of the Spokane and Interurban Electric Railroad Building (SIERR Building) restoration demonstrated that the future-proofing rating system demonstrated the applicability of the rating system to building types in different regions and for differing uses. The SIERR Building scored significantly higher on the rating system than the UW buildings because of the historic nature of the building and a focus on long term use of the building. This resulted higher scores for durability, adaptability, and flexibility at the SIERR Building compared to the UW buildings. This research concludes that (1) the attributes of future-proof items can be codified as a set of Principles, (2) Future-Proofing embodies a broader definition of sustainable and resilient design and life cycle assessment than popular concepts of resilience, (3) the Future-Proofing rating system is a valuable tool for objective evaluation of future-proof capacity, (4) subjective application of the Principles of Future-proofing is valuable during the process of making design decisions, (5) Future-proofing is a flexible system that can be adapted to different building and construction types in different regions and adjusted to support project specific goals, and (6) that continuous revision of the rating system is required to maintain compatibility with the rating systems upon which it is based
