Martin Rauch, refined earth : construction & design with rammed earth by Otto Kapfinger( )

18 editions published between 2015 and 2022 in English and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over 25 years, Martin Rauch has been at the forefront of research and development in all aspects of rammed earthed construction. Here, he shares his experience and knowledge of this construction material in a design manual. It goes beyond projects to focus on structural elements, such as the design and layout of floors, walls, ceilings and openings, which are clearly explained with detailed project information from structures previously realised by Rauch. Various examples help to illustrate how to overcome structural engineering difficulties in earth construction and the design possibilities that result from these solutions, while essays about earth as a material and its particular aspects in the areas of building biology, building physics and construction permits complete this fundamental work
LP Architektur : Bauten und Projekte 2008-2014 = Buildings and projects 2008-2014 by Norbert Mayr( )

7 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LP architektur has created a richly varied body of work in the ten years it has existed. The office's breakthrough came at the 2006 Winter Oympics in Turin with the emblematic Austria House, in which Tom Lechner, the LP managing partner blended tradition with modernity. LP Architektur has won a number of Austrian architecture awards since then. In an area defined by turbo-tourism, the Salzburg office's buildings have become beacons of regional identity that now reach beyond the borders of Salzburg. LP architektur sees its designs as psychograms that are the reflections of the individual desires and dreams of their clients. This selection of 23 buildings complements the works presented in the first monograph published in 2006 and shows how broad the spectrum of the architect's work has become in the meantime

Riess Wood3 : modulare Holzbausysteme( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Werk des Grazer Architekten Hubert Rieß spielt das Holzmodul und seine optimierte Entwicklung eine zentrale Rolle. Die Arbeit im Team um Rieß widmet sich seit Jahrzehnten dem Bauen mit dem Werkstoff Holz. Das Prinzip des Moduls ist für Rieß ein strukturelles Leitmotiv, das er im Wohnungsbau, im Gewerbebau und weiteren Nutzungszusammenhängen variantenreich anwendet. Das Buch ist ein Plädoyer für einen traditionellen Werkstoff und seine technische Evolution, die Serienreife mit einer selbstverständlichen Eleganz verbindet. Die Fallbeispiele dokumentieren jene räumlichen Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten, die Hubert Rieß, Architekt des ersten mehrgeschoßigen Wohnbaus in Holzbauweise in Österreich, in über 30 Jahren ausgeschöpft hat
Hermann Kaufmann : wood works : ökorationale Baukunst = architecture durable by Hermann Kaufmann( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hermann Kaufmann is a wood construction pioneer in Europe. The body of work he developed in 25 years includes commercial and farming construction projects, housing projects, community centers and schools, as well as hotels – and it is a striking reflection of the transition from classical wood construction techniques to the possibilities of new wood construction materials. The Ludesch Community Center, which was completed in 2006, received major international awards; it sets standards for the future in terms of construction biology and ecological concerns. The book offers a detailed view of Kaufmann’s technical and spatial innovations and explains his use of materials as required by the respective projects. The architect’s integrated approach to architecture is rooted in his biography and does not begin and end with ‘pretty architecture’. Instead, he practices construction as part of the responsible handling of nature and the landscape

Adolf Krischanitz by Adolf Krischanitz( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Austrian architect’s projects and approach in an extensive, elaborately designed, and playfully organized monograph Besides making buildings for living and working, Adolf Krischanitz also specializes in buildings for art and culture. Most recently, for instance, are his 21 Haus in Vienna and the Temporary Kunsthalle on the Schlossplatz in Berlin, excellent examples of what architecture in the service of art can look like. This publication presents his diverse projects, which cover every genre, from furniture design to museum. Otto Kapfinger, architecture theorist and journalist has conceived an open structure for the book, impressively conveying Krischanitz’s special approach, his apparently minimalist aesthetics, and the sublime style of his buildings. Organized according to themes and concepts, the essays explore the architect’s impact on intersecting points, such as architecture/urban planning, theory/practice, and architecture/contemporary art, but ultimately leave the last word to beautiful architectural expression

Marte. Marte Architects by Marte.Marte Architekten( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marte.marte have completed strikingly unique buildings in Western Austria, which has a rich variety of good architecture. In contrast to the typical tectonics of wood construction in Vorarlberg, marte.marte's work is monolithic, also in concrete. And in contrast to the compact volumes of older and newer buildings in the alpine region, marte.marte also gives the surrounding and exterior spaces of their projects precise tectonics as well. Their spatial compositions - which are only block-like masses at first glance - receive their exterior dynamics from their interiors. Whether it be concrete, wood, rammed earth, metal or glass, marte.marte always purify the material with disciplined details that serve the essential spatial experience of light and shadow, open and shaded areas, narrowness and breadth as well as inside and outside." "marte.marte features synoptic photo essays and text analyses that show the strong bond between the architects and the values of the region as well as their conceptual, sensual explorations into the realm of universal themes: section versus plan, weight versus lightness, form versus life."--Jacket

Martin Rauch, gebaute Erde Gestalten & Konstruieren mit Stampflehm by Otto Kapfinger( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2022 in German and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seit über 25 Jahren leistet Martin Rauch Forschung und Entwicklung in allen Bereichen des Bauens mit Stampflehm. Die daraus resultierenden Erfahrungen in Verbindung mit dem Wissen um diesen Baustoff möchte er nun in einem Planungshandbuch weitergeben. Denn das Konstruieren mit Lehm geht einher mit dem Verständnis für das Material selbst. Die Publikation gliedert sich daher auch nicht nach Projekten, sondern nach Bauteilen: Konstruktion und Ausführung zu Boden, Wand, Decke und Öffnungen werden anhand der einzelnen Projektdetails aus Martin Rauchs realisierten Bauten erläutert. An ihnen wird beispielhaft gezeigt, wie sich bautechnische Probleme im Lehmbau lösen lassen und welche gestalterischen Möglichkeiten sich daraus ergeben. Essays über das Material selbst und seine spezifischen Aspekte im Bereich der Baubiologie, Bauphysik und in Zulassungsfragen runden dieses Grundlagenwerk ab. (Quelle: Buchhandel.de)
