            Linda Collins gets up on a Monday morning, dresses for work, makes coffee and goes into her daughter Victoria's bedroom. Why hasn't Vicky got up yet? It's an important day: the start of the second term of her final year at school. Today she will hear her latest exam results. T...he bedroom is empty. So begins every parent's worst nightmare. Collins, a New Zealand journalist based in Singapore, writes with startling candour about her daughter's suicide: the secrets she kept from her parents, the revelations in the personal journals she left behind, and the struggle of Collins and Malcolm McLeod, Victoria's father, to find answers in the midst of enormous grief. How, they ask themselves, could they have missed the signs? What did the counsellors at Victoria's school know about her state of mind? Did her school friends have any idea how desperate she was? And above all, why would a beautiful, talented, much loved young woman take her own life? Loss Adjustment is a wake-up call. New Zealand has the highest suicide rate for teenagers among the world's wealthy developed countries. Most of those who kill themselves are, like Victoria McLeod, aged 15 to 19. Linda Collins examines the tragedy of teenage suicide from her profoundly personal viewpoint, while Victoria's journals, uncovered after her death, give an incredibly valuable insight into the unseen stresses and anxieties suffered by many teenagers.

            Research Methods for the Architectural Profession introduces research as a systematic process, describes how to formulate research questions, provides an in-depth explanation of different research methods (qualitative, quantitative, and experimental), explains how to select appro...priate research methods, and execute research studies. It describes the process of documentation, knowledge dissemination, and application of research results in architectural design and practice. Most importantly, it provides guidelines for integrating research into profession, and uses extensive case-studies and practice-relevant examples to illustrate main concepts, procedures, and applications. Integrating research into practice is essential for developing new knowledge, solving design and technical problems, overcoming different types of challenges present in contemporary profession, and improving the design outcomes. Innovation requires a much stronger correlation between research and design, and it is pertinent for the future of architectural practice that research becomes an integral part of architectural profession. This book provides a roadmap for successfully integrating research into architectural design and for establishing innovative practices, regardless of a firm's size. Written by an architecture professor with extensive research and professional background-specifically focusing on integrating research into practice-and richly illustrated with over 150 color images, this reference will be useful for both students and practitioners.

            Scenic Architecture Office always starts with responding to needs from body & mind, nature, and society, and tries to establish a balanced and dynamic relevance among them through ontological orders composed by space-time and tectonics. This collection includes 12 representative ...works in its 15 years of practice, and each work contains design concept, sketches, tectonic details, and photos. The works are categorised in Courtyard Settlement , Extension of Homes , and Free Units . Courtyard Settlement refers to reconstruction of the spatial formtype of courtyard; Extension of Homes , expansion of the traditional house formtype; and Free Units test of the new formtype. Through explorations of the formtype, they hope to bridge the past, present and future to make architecture a carrier of cultural memory and the times' energy, and a balanced and dynamic connection between human, nature and society. AUTHOR: Zhu Xiaofeng got his master's degree of architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and bachelor's degree in Architecture from Shenzhen University. He founded Scenic Architecture Office in Shanghai in 2004. Since 2012, he has been teaching at Tongji University as a guest professor. Mr. Zhu won 40 under 40 award for 40 leading young designers in Asia Perspective in 2008, and he was in the finalist of China Architecture Media Award Young Architect Award. SELLING POINTS: First complete review of the works of Scenic Architecture office Rich illustrations and drawings provide a lot of inspiration on innovative Chinese architecture 600 color, 400 b/w illustrations
