Conversations with form : a workbook for students of architecture by N. J Habraken( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through a progressive series of exercises - accompanied by observational studies, examples and applied theory - Conversations with Form: A Workbook for Students of Architecture improves designers' understanding, dexterity and resilience in making form. It specifically focuses on the skills needed to succeed in the everyday context in which the vast majority of architects will ultimately design and build, wherein no one designs in isolation and existing conditions never represent a tabula rasa. The text begins by familiarizing readers with utilizing step-by-step sequences of moves to steer the development of built form and rapidly moves to designs of increasing complexity. These design plays treat a wide-ranging series of topics including structures, patterns, types, systems and other kinds of shared form principles. Conversations with Form is a workbook for honing hands-on skills and tools of the architect's trade. Beautifully illustrated and focused on practical, usable information, the book provides architectural students with an accessible and useable handbook for their design practice"--
Soportes : vivienda y ciudad = Supports : housing and city by N. J Habraken( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in Spanish and English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El arquitecto John Habraken visitó la Escuela de Arquitectura de Barcelona (ETSAB-UPC) entre el 18 y el 25 de abril de 2008 para dictar un taller en el Máster Laboratorio de la vivienda del siglo XXI, de la Fundació Politècnica de Catalunya, en compañía de Andrés Mignucci.

Este libro recogelo investigado en este taller
Loose-fit architecture : designing buildings for change by Alex Lifschutz( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 57 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 appearance of the form : four essays on the position designing takes between people and things by N. J Habraken( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four essays in this book consider how the countless physical objects that we live with appear in our human culture. For millennia use and making were inseparable, even when the latter knew specialization. In that age old mode of working things emerged as the product of collective understandings and shared images. Only recently what we now know as 'designing' appeared as a specific professional intervention. Designers produce 'appearances' of new things - in the way of drawings, models and descriptions - to arrive at an instruction for the making of them. As such, designing places itself between use and inhabitation on the one hand and making on the other
The Grunsfeld variations : a report on the thematic development of an urban tissue by N. J Habraken( Book )

11 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La arquitectura de la vivienda colectiva : políticas y proyectos en la ciudad contemporánea by Josep Maria Montaner( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este libro presenta una historia que aún no se había escrito con una visión amplia e interpretativa. Dicha historia se expone desde una perspectiva contemporánea que aborda la complejidad de la realidad y describe unas experiencias que son ejemplos modélicos de políticas de vivienda y de tipología arquitectónica. Los casos estudiados se interpretan no sólo en su momento de realización, sino también en su funcionamiento posterior. De todos ellos, se pone énfasis en los casos que se han concentrado en lo comunitario y en lo urbano. En la primera parte del libro se expone la amplia tradición que se inició con los experimentos del Existenzminimum, con los Höfe vieneses y las Siedlungen alemanas, y que siguió con las new towns inglesas y los grands ensembles franceses. La segunda parte explica las respuestas a la crisis del urbanismo moderno y de la vivienda funcionalista, con las alternativas ofrecidas por el organicismo, los procesos de participación, la crítica tipológica y la teoría y práctica de los soportes. La tercera parte aborda los sistemas contemporáneos: la organización en planta, los combinados modulares, la inserción en la ciudad, la creación de barrios y la superposición en capas. Por último, la cuarta parte analiza las alternativas a los sistemas dominantes: la rehabilitación, las arquitecturas medioambientales, la previsión de la periferia, la remodelación de los barrios marginales y las respuestas a situaciones de catástrofe. Para dar una visión más amplia de todo lo anterior, se ha renunciado al eurocentrismo convencional y a la presentación exclusiva de obras realizados en los países desarrollados: es decir, se han incluido numerosas experiencias llevadas a cabo en países en desarrollo. Asimismo, no se estudian sólo ejemplos convencionales de nueva planta, sino también rehabilitaciones y reciclajes, arquitecturas sostenibles y viviendas de emergencia
