'Interior Architecture' provides an in-depth study of the creative and construction processes behind 30 contemporary interior designs. Covering a broad range of international projects, it illustrates the working methods and creative concerns of both long-established and emerging international designers.
Understanding modern more as lifestyle than as style, it is all about clean lines, elegant colour combinations, maximising indoor-outdoor relationships, artfully collecting and displaying design objects and open areas for lounging, cooking and dining.
This book examines how different software can be incorporated into the traditional phases of an interior design project and demonstrates technical tactics within those programs to optimize workflow and interoperability.
"What can you do with a degree in architecture? Where might it take you? What kind of challenges could you address? Architects After Architecture reframes architecture as a uniquely versatile way of acting on the world, far beyond that of designing buildings. In this volume, we meet forty practitioners through profiles, case studies, and interviews who have used their architectural training in new and resourceful ways to tackle the climate crisis, work with refugees, advocate for diversity, start tech companies, become leading museum curators, tackle homelessness, draft public policy, become developers, design videogames, shape public discourse, and much more. Together, they describe a future of architecture that is diverse and engaged, expanding the limits of the discipline, and offering new paths forward in times of crisis.
Don't Get a Job, Make a Job explores strategies for graduates to gain exposure in the creative industries - including design, fashion and advertising. Too often a design or architecture degree is seen as a means to an end (a job in an established practice). But imagine for one moment that there are no employers, no firms to send your CV to, no interviews to be had - what would you do? How would you forge your own path after graduation? The current economic climate has seen many graduates chasing a finite number of positions. The most ingenious and driven designers have found weird and wonderful ways of making opportunities for themselves, often by applying their skills across the creative disciplines of art, design, architecture and interiors. Knowing what you want from your design career and being able to adapt your strategy to suit is basic and vital - just like in the wild, designers need to evolve.
At a time when work and home life are becoming increasingly blurred, and modern technology brings the realm of the public into what used to be a personal and private space, Ed Hollis looks at what it means to make a home in today's world. Exploring the meaning of private and public space, the importance we place on physical objects and the demands we make of our home environment, How to Make a Home challenges us to re-imagine the concept of home and hearth.
"It has been a while since I devoured a book on architecture with as much pleasure. I love a good section and I love this book."--Aaron Betsky,Architect Magazine Award-winning architects Paul Lewis, Marc Tsurumaki, and David J. Lewis's essential guide to section. Section, along with plan and elevation, is one of the most important representational techniques of architectural design.Manual of Section is the first book to provide a framework to describe and evaluate this fundamental design process in architecture. Divided into seven categories of section based on extensive archival research: * Range is from simple one-story buildings to complex structures * Features stacked forms, fantastical shapes, internal holes, inclines, sheared planes, nested forms, or combinations of each * Includes sixty-three intricately detailed cross-section perspective drawings of many of the most significant structures in international architecture from the last one hundred years.
Illustrates the application of modern interior design, new materials and the cutting-edge technologies which can adapt the concept of "the home" to the needs of today. This book gathers 200 examples which demonstrate numerous possibilities in contemporary design and thinking to inspire your own decorating projects.
Colour is a key element in decoration and affects the way in which a space is perceived but also the relation between the space itself and the objects within it. The psychological aspects of different tones and shades are also well known. This book gives practical ideas and advice on colour for walls, furniture and accessories.
The Big Book of Interiors features more than 600 different design ideas covering every room in the house. Chapters are divided by location in the home: Living Rooms Bedrooms Kitchens Bathrooms Home Offices Kid Rooms Entrances and Corridors Each section opens with text describing the decorating challenges unique to that part of the house, followed by full-color design ideas.
Since the appearance of simplified 3D sketching programs like SketchUp, architects and interior designers have been called on to use both freehand and 3D CAD drawings, often at very earliest stages of design. Since we must often go back and forth between analytical plan views and 3D visual views, it's important that this be a seamless process, requiring little disruptive action or break in the workflow. Integrated Drawing Techniques closes the gap between creativity and geometry, teaching beginner architects and interior designers how to design their residential interiors using freehand sketching and computer-aided design simultaneously. From concept planning to 3D rendering, this book is a comprehensive guide to designing residences by hand and computer.
Design Graphics: Drawing Techniques for Design Professionals , Third Edition, combines-in a single volume-simple techniques and skills related to sketching, design-development, and the schematic or preliminary phase of design presentation. Emphasizing drawing as a mental as well as physical exercise, the text helps students draw designs on paper faster and easier, showing them how visual communication with clients can provide better, more economical design solutions.
Sketching Interiors: From Traditional to Digital, highlights four basic drawing skills for interior sketching across three different media-pencil, ink, and marker. The in-depth approach to various elements of sketching, including details of perception, texture, negative space, elevation, contour, and the treatment of interior and exterior spaces, will help students perfect freehand and drawing skills.
Go beyond the basics: making SketchUp work for you Architectural Design with SketchUp, Second Edition, is the leading guide to this incredibly useful tool for architects, interior designers, construction professionals, and makers. With easy to follow tutorials that first brush up on the basics of the program and then cover many advanced processes, this resource offers both informative text and full-color illustrations to clearly convey the techniques and features you need to excel.
In SketchUp & LayOut for Architecture, you'll learn a step-by-step workflow that will enable you to eliminate CAD from your workflow, focus on your design, and produce beautiful construction documents for each phase of design, including Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Documentation.
