The sensing, processing, and visualizing that are currently in development within the environment boldly change the ways design and maintenance of landscapes are perceived and conceptualised. This is the first book to rationalize interactive architecture and responsive technologies through the lens of contemporary landscape architectural theory. Responsive Landscapes frames a comprehensive view of design projects using responsive technologies and their relationship to landscape and environmental space. Divided into six insightful sections, the book frames the projects through the terms; elucidate, compress, displace, connect, ambient, and modify to present and construct a pragmatic framework in which to approach the integration of responsive technologies into landscape architecture. Complete with international case studies, the book explores the various approaches taken to utilise responsive technologies in current professional practice. This will serve as a reference for professionals, and academics looking to push the boundaries of landscape projects and seek inspiration for their design proposals.

Design Research Through Practice: From the Lab, Field, and Showroom focuses on one type of contemporary design research known as constructive design research. It looks at three approaches to constructive design research: Lab, Field, and Showroom. The book shows how theory, research practice, and the social environment create commonalities between these approaches. It illustrates how one can successfully integrate design and research based on work carried out in industrial design and interaction design. The book begins with an overview of the rise of constructive design research, as well as constructive research programs and methodologies. It then describes the logic of studying design in the laboratory, design ethnography and field work, and the origins of the Showroom and its foundation on art and design rather than on science or the social sciences. It also discusses the theoretical background of constructive design research, along with modeling and prototyping of design items. Finally, it considers recent work in Lab that focuses on action and the body instead of thinking and knowing. Many kinds of designers and people interested in design will find this book extremely helpful. Gathers design research experts from traditional lab science, social science, art, industrial design, UX and HCI to lend tested practices and how they can be used in a variety of design projects Provides a multidisciplinary story of the whole design process, with proven and teachable techniques that can solve both academic and practical problems Presents key examples illustrating how research is applied and vignettes summarizing the key how-to details of specific projects

Architects and Creative Users

Author: Jonathan Hill

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134437048

Category: Architecture

Page: 232

View: 7032

Drawing on the work of a wide range of architects, artists and writers, this book considers the relations between the architect and the user, which it compares to the relations between the artist and viewer and the author and reader. The book's thesis is informed by the text 'The Death of the Author', in which Roland Barthes argues for a writer aware of the creativity of the reader. Actions of Architecture begins with a critique of strategies that define the user as passive and predictable, such as contemplation and functionalism. Subsequently it considers how an awareness of user creativity informs architecture, architects and concepts of authorship in architectural design. Identifying strategies that recognize user creativity, such as appropriation, collaboration, disjunction, DIY, montage, polyvalence and uselessness, Actions of Architecture states that the creative user should be the central concern of architectural design.

Zehn Jahre danach: Der Finanzcrash und seine dramatischen Folgen Als die US-Großbank Lehman Brothers im September 2008 zusammenbrach, war dies der Tiefpunkt der Banken- und Finanzkrise. Und obwohl der totale Kollaps der Weltwirtschaft damals verhindert wurde, ist die Finanzkrise noch lange nicht Geschichte, wie der britische Historiker Adam Tooze zeigt. Er schildert, wie es zu dieser Krise der Finanzmärkte kam und welche dramatischen Folgen sie bis heute hat. Denn nicht nur ist durch die Finanzkrise die Stabilität Europas ins Wanken geraten, sie hat auch das Vertrauen in die Kraft der globalen Wirtschaftsordnung erschüttert – und so zum Aufstieg der Populisten beigetragen.

Die Science & Technology Studies sind ein interdisziplinäres und vor allem internationales Forschungsfeld, das sich mit den Wechselverhältnissen von Wissenschaft, Technik und Gesellschaft beschäftigt. In Theorie und Empirie erforschen sie die zunehmende Verwissenschaftlichung von Technik und Gesellschaft, die Technisierung von Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft sowie die Vergesellschaftung von Wissenschaft und Technik. Mit der Fokussierung auf ‚Wissenschaft und Technik in Aktion‘ ist die Wissenschafts- und Technikforschung gegenüber der Einhegung diverser Erkenntniszugänge skeptisch und sensibel gegenüber der In und Exklusion verschiedener Gruppen und Akteure innerhalb wissenschaftlicher Diskurse. Der vorliegende Band der „Schlüsselwerke der Science & Technology Studies“ leistet einen Beitrag, die Perspektiven der Wissenschafts- und Technikforschung im deutschsprachigen Raum sichtbarer zu machen und inhaltliche Impulse für Studium, Lehre und Forschung zu bieten.

Eine politische Designtheorie

Früher entwarfen Designer Gegenstände. Heute wird praktisch alles designt: das Klima, Prozesse, Flüchtlingslager. Wenn jedoch alles designt wird, ist es höchste Zeit, Design nicht länger allein nach ästhetischen Gesichtspunkten zu bewerten. Wir brauchen, so Friedrich von Borries, eine politische Designtheorie. Der Mensch ist gezwungen, die Bedingungen, unter denen er lebt, zu gestalten. Geschieht dies so, dass Handlungsoptionen reduziert werden, haben wir es mit Unterwerfung zu tun. In seinem Manifest plädiert von Borries für ein entwerfendes Design (des Überlebens, der Gesellschaft, des Selbst), das sich der totalitären Logik der Versicherheitlichung entzieht und gegen die Ideologie der Alternativlosigkeit neue Formen des Zusammenlebens imaginiert.

La prima edizione di questo libro, edita in Germania nel 1991 e tradotta a pubblicata in Italia nel 1992 da Arnoldo Mondadori, ebbe grande successo, perché offriva per la prima volta un'informazione densa ed esauriente del fenomeno design, visto nelle tre prospettive: come nasce, come si manifesta dei diversi Paesi del mondo, quali teorie esso ha generato. Opportuna è stata la sua decisione di riproporlo ampliato e aggiornato, perché da allora il mondo del design è cambiato radicalmente, e perché "Oggi, la vita della maggioranza delle persone non sarebbe più concepibile senza il design". Naturale, dunque, la decisione di ISIA Design Firenze di promuoverne, su proposta di Paolo Deganello, la traduzione, e la pubblicazione da parte di Gangemi Editore nella collana "Teoria e Cultura del Design" diretta da Giuseppe Furlanis, arricchita dalla presentazione di Fulvio Carmagnola. Esso sarà un utile libro di testo di base per le Scuole di Design, e una fonte di riflessioni e di stimoli per studiosi, imprenditori, quadri delle imprese impegnate nell'innovazione di prodotti e di servizi. Il libro è suddiviso in quattro grandi parti. La prima è costituita da un capitolo storico generale. Segue una parte ("Design e globalizzazione") dedicata a un'accurata rassegna dell'evoluzione della disciplina e dei suoi protagonisti nei vari Paesi, dove l'andamento diacronico e storico si ripete e si specifica a un grado di risoluzione maggiore. La parte centrale e certamente più impegnativa è costituita dai capitoli 3 e 4, dedicati rispettivamente alla metodologia e alla teoria. Qui l'Autore si produce in un doppio sforzo: in primo luogo cerca di sistematizzare una molteplicità di contributi provenienti soprattutto dall'area anglosassone e tedesca, e in secondo luogo di costruire collegamenti organici con l'eredità molteplice dei saperi provenienti dalle scienze umane, dalla sociologia, dalla semiotica, e anche dalle cosiddette "scienze formali". Infine un'ultima parte ("Context") presenta una notevole apertura, di carattere ancora non sistematizzato, ma in forma piuttosto di suggerimento di riflessione, a proposito dell'evoluzione degli scenari di riferimento più prossimi e influenti sullo specifico della disciplina. è una direzione che pone l'accento sulle prospettive di visione qualitativa, oltre che sui vincoli e sulle opportunità delle dinamiche tecnologiche. Il volume è a cura di Rodrigo Rodriquez con il coordinamento di Stefano Maria Bettega. Traduzione di Anna Maria Sandri, Francesca Andrich e Matteo Palmisano.

Doch je mehr er sich auf eine Zukunft einlässt, die nie stattgefunden hat, desto mehr droht ihm die Gegenwart zu entgleiten. Die Kurzgeschichte „Das Gernsback-Kontinuum“ erscheint als exklusives E-Book Only bei Heyne und ist zusammen mit weiteren Stories von William Gibson auch in dem Sammelband „Cyberspace“ enthalten.
