Infra eco logi urbanism : a project for the Great Lakes megaregion( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

RVTR, a design research practice with studios based in Toronto and Ann Arbor, have undertaken a multi-faceted investigation into possible urban futures for the Great Lakes Megaregion of North America. The study is based in the proposition that by investigating interdependent agents, material flows and policies, and by focusing on "back of house" activities of cities and their support systems-such as infrastructures, logistics and ecologies-, architects can conceive new distributed urban architectures that have the potential to actively transform the future of cities, settlement patterns and metropolitan life. Utilizing tools of urban analysis and formal intervention, RVTR aim to re-conceptualize future boundaries, governance, politics, economies and public architecture. Infra Eco Logi Urbanism presents comprehensively RVTR's findings and proposals. Around 100 images, visualizations and graphics illustrate the text. The book also features essays situating the historical development of the region around transportation, and investigating possible future worlds and utopias within the context of the specific project and more broadly the practice of design-research

Evoking through design : contemporary moods in architecture( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A visually stunning title, 'Evoking Through Design' features built work and speculative projects that highlight how contemporary practices are using devices such as spatial compositing, surface articulation, novel manipulations of matter and computational code in order to constitute spatial conditions radiating in delicate and sophisticated atmospheres. The theoretical foundations of the subject are explored through core essays on key themes: the historical lineage of the evocation of atmosphere and moods in architecture; the more recent preoccupation with speculative realism in architecture; the human body and atmosphere; and picturesque techniques."--Back cover

Signifying practices : the pre-texts of post-modern architecture by John McMorrough( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent views, architectural postmodernism is rejected as a facile historicism, archaic both in its image and its concern with the image--but such a dismissive conception obscures the multiple trajectories of its formation. This dissertation reexamines the early manifestations of postmodern architecture, in a series of publications, polemics and practices in the late 1970s that are both constitutive of, and alternatives to, the eventual definition of the movement. These signifying practices--the bricolage design strategies (as architectural expediency) of Colin Rowe, the billboards (as emblems of a Pop architecture) of Robert Venturi, et al., the Supergraphics (as hands-on approach to building renovation) of C. Ray Smith, and Post-Modernism itself (as the naming of the movement) in Charles Jencks' development of the term--each addressed the status of architecture in the midst of a reevaluation of modernism. Common to each is an engagement with the performative (as opposed to the representational) use of the sign. Taken as a set, the relations within and among these practices have formal, conceptual and discursive resonance, and together represent a historical field seemingly obscure in its obviousness. Their study illuminates continuing problematics regarding the relationships of representation to performance in both architectural design and criticism, and provides a vocabulary to re-imagine the possibilities of these relationships
