              Affordable housing is currently in short supply in many European cities. Persuasive models and outlooks for the future are needed if demand is to be met. Yet how can costs be reduced without restricting the quality of housing? This book documents current outstanding housing devel...opments from all over Europe, which are distinguished by their quality but also by the fact that they were realised with reduced construction costs. Design solutions, deliberate material selection, specific building processes and explicit planning requirements all contributed to this result. The projects are documented in depth with photos, texts, floor plans and detailed drawings. The introduction includes three essays that examine the topic from different perspectives.

              Bridges shape landscapes and cities and are structures of immense value to society. They serve to overcome divisions, are masterpieces of technology and aesthetics and can, with their individual design, represent works of art, landmarks, monuments or even symbols. Bridges are alm...ost always extreme civil engineering projects that often document milestones of technical possibilities while, last but not least, serving as a testimony to history. This book provides insights into the fascinating world of bridge building, with essays covering history, the intricacies of material selection, types of structures and implementation down to the last detail. Various impressive project examples illustrate how it is possible to span the gap between technology, aesthetics and bold, innovative solutions.

              In past years, architects have been confronted with a changed market, changed sets of tasks and also new requirements. Which strategies can they adopt to get commissions or spark interest in their projects? With selected examples, the author analyses the processes of individual a...rchitects since the 1950s. Beginning with the commencement of marketing in the North American post-war era he proceeds to then cast his view to contemporary times. Transformations in society and politics, the changed requirements of clients, and also the crisis in the economy and financial circles all influence the professional existence of architects. While pure construction itself was the focus in previous times, today's architects must adopt a wide variety of roles in relation to clients ranging from consultant to mediator and brand designer. The book is intended to inspire architects to consider new options and unusual paths.

              The Swiss canton of Grisons impresses with an overwhelming landscape and outstanding new architecture. The material concrete has a long tradition there in the deliberate confrontation with history, material, scale, and construction. It goes without saying that impressive building...s of innovative material aesthetics blend into the rugged rock formations of the surroundings. While the versatility of wood is evoked elsewhere today, the quality of concrete is revived here. The book provides a deep insight into the history, materiality and construction of this fascinating material in the Grisons tradition and makes you want to travel there to be inspired by the quality of the 20 project examples presented.

              OMA - Office for Metropolitan Architecture - is one of the world's most influential think tanks for architecture and urban planning. With his intellectual approach to architecture, Rem Koolhaas, founding father and Pritzker Award winner, is much more than an international archite...cture super star. The architecture at OMA is developed in close cooperation with AMO, an associated yet independent design and research studio. Now, as then, the goal is to reconsider architecture, break from conventions, discover new possibilities. The journey is the destination, the architecture a never-ending process of constantly changing conditions and perspectives. This monograph on OMA highlights impressive projects from several years of architectural creativity by describing concepts, techniques and processes. And by presenting one thing above all, numerous architectural details.

              The presented residential projects in Vienna originated from a desire to develop living concepts that strengthen the sense of community and contribute to a society based on solidarity - building groups and participative projects, neighbourhood homes, temporary or permanent social... forms of living and working for marginalised groups such as the homeless. Private homes can be downsized if there are more communal spaces. This reduces the need for land and property and gives the community room for leisure and other opportunities. Ulrike Schartner and Alexander Hagner from gaupenraup+/- explain the starting point and strategies of their work. Robert Temel and Isabella Marboe present the development of communal forms of building and living based on important precursors and trends.

              Dieses Kompendium oekologischer Lehmbauten von der Antike bis heute zeigt erstmals die enorme Vielfalt dieser traditionellen Bauweise aus technischer, kultureller und historischer Sicht. Es prasentiert verschiedene Arten von Lehmbaukonstruktionen wie Lehmziegel und gestampfte Erd...e und Konstruktionsweisen von Wanden, Boegen und Kuppeln usw. Die Analyse historischer Meisterwerke, die heute meist zum UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe gehoeren, und die Darstellung der unterschiedlichsten Typologien von Lehmbauten zeigen, dass dieses Material auch fur die aktuelle Architektur Bestand hat. OEkologische und nachhaltige Aspekte machen den Baustoff selbst fur oeffentliche Einrichtungen interessant. Illustriert von mehr als 600 beeindruckenden Fotos und 100 Zeichnungen und Architekturplanen ist das Werk das Ergebnis von rund funfzig Jahren intensiver Recherche. Es stellt ein einzigartiges allumfassendes Werk zum Thema Bauen mit Lehm dar.
