Generative design by Asterios Agkathidis( )

19 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Generating form is one of the most fundamental aspects of architectural education and practice. While new computational tools are enabling ever more unpredictable forms, critics argue that this leads to a disconnection between architectural output and its context. This attractive, pocket-sized book uses 11 different architectural projects to explore how generative design processes can integrate digital as well as physical design tools and techniques to produce innovative forms that cohere with structural and material principles, performance and context. Illustrated with drawings, computer images and models, this stimulating, accessible handbook of ideas provides a guide for students as well as an inspiration for practising architects
Biomorphic structures : architecture inspired by nature by Asterios Agkathidis( Book )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From leaves to liquids, caves to crystal formations, nature has always been a major source of inspiration for architects. This book examines how nature can act as a precedent for design solutions through twelve case studies. Packed with computer drawings, sketches, models, and photographs, this will be an ideal resource of ideas for students in their studio work, as well as for practicing architects
Form defining strategies : experimental architectural design by Gabi Schillig( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and German and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Form Defining Strategies examines experimental design methodologies in architecture and their discussion in academic settings. Theoretical considerations are provided by a wide range of writers and theoreticians alongside numerous examples of conceptual designs. Edited by Asterios Agkathidis, Markus Hudert and Gabi Schillig, this is the third, revised edition
Modular structures in design and architecture by Asterios Agkathidis( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines morphogenetic processes based on a combination of digital and analogue modeling and manufacturing techniques. These modules can in many cases be translated into architectural designs. They show an exciting new avenues in educational motivation, using a systematic architectural approach as well as an understanding of complex geometries
Performative geometries : transforming textile techniques( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the scope of the workshop Performative Geometries, students at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki developed individual spatial designstrategies by analyzing textile techniques and their underlying geometrical spatial appearance. As in architecture, fashion creates a second skin that can adapt to the human body depending on its programming the skin changes. In terms of spatial organization, we can learn many things from techniques that are used by fashion designers. In the Performative Geometries workshops, each group analyzed a specific piece of clothes in terms of geometry, technique, cutting pattern and material. The book contains many visuals of the form studies in between fashion, textiles, space and architecture, thus combining and blurring the moving and the static, and essays by leaders in the field
Digital manufacturing in design and architecture by Asterios Agkathidis( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the possibilities emerging for design and architecture by the introduction of novel CAD and digital manufacturing techniques." (p. 4)
Computational architecture by Asterios Agkathidis( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Computational Architecture offers an overview of digital tools and techniques, such as twisting, lofting, triangulating, drilling, knotting, and framing, that were used systematically to explore spatial, structural, and geometrical conditions, leading to the emergence of abstract prototypes
Sustainable retrofits : post-war residential towers in Britain by Asterios Agkathidis( )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presenting the state-of-the-art in sustainable retrofits in post war residential towers, this book captures and re-informs the current intense refurbishing process that is taking place in Britain, which is part of a global phenomenon happening all over the world, as cities upgrade their building stock in an attempt to comply with governmental emission reduction targets. The authors present inspections of 20 sustainably retrofitted social housing towers, analysing their aesthetic and technical modifications, as well as the shifts occurring in their social structure. The authors use over 200 full colour plans, elevations, photographs, maps and illustrations to beautifully support the statistical and analytical information collected. Finally they include interviews with some of the architects who designed the retrofits, residents and key stakeholders to inform the conclusions
