    Reviewing the use of natural light by architects in the era of electricity, this book aims to show that natural light not only remains a potential source of order in architecture, but that natural lighting strategies impose a usefully creative discipline on design.

  • Reading Architecture and Cultureby Adam Sharr

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 48.95

    Architecture displays the values involved in its inhabitation, construction, procurement and design.

    Birkhäuser 2003; US$ 70.00

    a disused power station is converted into a cultural centre, an old barn is made into a residential house.

The construction and building requirements confronting the architect are as varied and individual as the... more...

  • Ausbau Atlasby Gerhard Hausladen; Karsten Tichelmann

    Birkhäuser 2009; US$ 114.00

    Fußballstadien, Flughäfen, Theater oder Museen – solch spektakuläre Projekte dürfen nur wenige Architekten zu ihren Bauaufgaben zählen.
