Living bridges : the inhabited bridge, past, present and future by Peter Murray( Book )

17 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Living Bridges, the first book ever to be published on the subject, examines the contributions that inhabited bridges have made to city life from the Middle Ages to the present day, and explores the role they could play in the future. The history and construction of major inhabited bridges across Europe and North America are discussed in detail. In Europe these include Old London Bridge, the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, the Ponte di Rialto, Venice, and the Pont de Notre-Dame in Paris, as well as contemporary projects by Richard Rogers, Alsop and Stormer, SITE, Morphosis, Mario Bellini, Bernard Tschumi and other leading architects. The book is copiously illustrated and contains photographs of some of the specially commissioned large-scale models of twenty of the most notable "living bridges" in history, together with numerous reproductions of period drawings and paintings, as well as photographs of extant bridges

KPF : Kohn Pedersen Fox, architecture and urbanism, 2003-2012( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth volume in a series of monographs celebrating the innovative architectural designs of the highly esteemed international firm. KPF initially distinguished itself through its attention to the most characteristic American building type, the skyscraper. The evolution of the tall tower is a key part of a sustainable paradigm in which individual buildings form part of a larger system of vertical centers linked by horizontal networks of public transportation. These "vertical cities" represent a sustainable model for future development where public transport is encouraged, land is conserved, and energy and water uses are reduced. KPF leads the way, creating enduring architecture with contextual sensitivity, flexibility of use, and care for the environment. KPF has achieved international stature, becoming the first firm to be a member of the United Nations Global Compact. This, the fourth volume of their work, explores their recent buildings in detail. The projects include buildings that have transformed the urban fabric of their respective cities, such as the Roppongi Hills Tower complex in Tokyo and the Shanghai World Financial Center, the tallest skyscraper in Asia
Loose-fit architecture : designing buildings for change by Alex Lifschutz( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea that a building is "finished' or "complete" on the day it opens its doors is hardwired into existing thinking about design, construction and planning. But this ignores the unprecedented rate of social and technological change. A building only begins its life when the contractors leave. With resources at a premium and a greater need for a sustainable use of building materials, can we still afford to construct new housing or indeed any buildings that ignore the need for flexibility or the ability to evolve over time? Our design culture needs to move beyond the idealisation of a creative individual designer generating highly specific forms with fixed uses. The possibilities of adaptation and flexibility have often been overlooked, but they create hugely exciting 'loose-fit' architecture that emancipate users to shape their own versatile and vibrant environments
The saga of Sydney Opera House : the dramatic story of the design and construction of the icon of modern Australia by Peter Murray( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Probably the most popular building of the last century, Sydney Opera House is the icon of modern Australia. It has repaid its Au$100 million cost many times over, both as a tourist attraction and as a cultural center; as a brand, it is priceless. The story of its creation is one of both triumph and tragedy: universally loved these days, it was attacked by press and public when under construction. It is a masterpiece of modern architecture, yet Jorn Utzon, its designer, walked out before completion. Opinions are still divided over who was at fault when he resigned after a row with the client in 1966, and the story continues to rouse powerful passions to this day. Now, nearly 40 years later, Utzon has been invited back to oversee the building's refurbishment." "Peter Murray's biography of the building presents both sides of the story. Using previously unpublished files and papers; Murray has managed to unravel one of the most intriguing architectural controversies of recent times - what really happened when they built Sydney Opera House?"--BOOK JACKET

Cook's Camden London's great experiment in urban housing by Peter Barber( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From a symposium held on October 30th 2010 and organised by NLA, The Building Centre and the DOSSier (Discourses on Space and Society), research unit at the department of architecture, Oxford Brookes University. The housing projects built by Camden when Sydney Cook was borough architect (1965-73) constitute the last great output of social housing in the UK and also arguably the most substantial investigation into the architecture of urban housing undertaken in the past half-century. As such these projects continue to provide a benchmark for architects today. Speakers at the symposium presented a range of projects built in the borough at the time, and provided a contemporary view on their impact today
