Design For Health:  Sustainable Approaches to Therapeutic Architecture AD, guest-edited by Terri Peters, seeks out innovative and varied sustainable architectural responses to designing for health, such as:

    • integrating sensory gardens and landscapes into the care environment
    • specifying local materials and passive technologies
    • and reinvigorating aging postwar facilities.

Innovative architecture can positively contribute to patient wellbeing and recovery, and this issue of AD draws on international built examples that excel in combining the highest level of healthcare with an enlightened approach to architectural design, highlighting the importance of designing for the long term, creating inspiring spaces, and connecting healthcare to the wider community.

As well as architects and architectural students, this issue of AD will also be of interest to healthcare policy makers, engineers and construction professionals.

Contributors include:  Annmarie Adams, Sean Ahlquist, Giuseppe Boscherini, Robin Guenther, Charles Jencks, Richard Mazuch, and Stephen Verderber. Featured architects include: 100% interior, Arup, CF Møller, Lyons, MASS Design Group, Montgomery Sisam Architects, and Penoyre & Prasad.

 

Workflows: Expanding Architecture’s Territory in the Design and Delivery of Buildings, guest-edited by Richard Garber, is the latest edition of AD and contains contributions from Shajay Bhooshan, John Cays, Randy Deutsch, Sean Gallagher, Ian Keough, Peter Kis, Jonathan Mallie, Adam Modesitt, Rhett Russo, Dale Sinclair, and Stacie Wong, as well as featuring architects: Arup, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, GLUCK+, GRO Architects, PLANT, Populous, Young & Ayata, and Zaha Hadid Architects.

Workflows are being rethought and remodelled across the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) spectrum. The combination of building information modelling (BIM) platforms with digital simulation techniques and increasing access to data, charting building performance, is allowing architects to engage in the generation of new workflows across multidisciplinary teams.


By merging digital design operations with construction activities, project delivery and post-occupation scenarios, architects are becoming instrumental in the shaping of buildings as well as the design process. Workflows expand the territory of architectural practice by extending designers’ remit beyond the confines of the design stage. The implications for the AEC industry and architecture as a profession could not be greater. These new collaborative models are becoming as important as the novel buildings they allow us to produce.


This edition of AD will be of interest to architects and students of architecture, as well as professionals and students in related disciplines, such as engineering and construction management.

 

Architecture in Context: Designing in the Middle East, by Hassan Radoine provides a foundation for understanding the critical context of architecture and design in this region. It does this by:

    • presenting a practical overview of architectural know-how in the Middle East, and its potential for cultivating a sense of place
    • introducing local architectural vocabularies and styles, and how they can still be reactivated in contemporary design
    • exploring the cultural and contextual meaning of forms as references that may influence contemporary architecture
    • discussing important discourses and trends in architecture that allow a rethinking of the current global/local dichotomy.

Highly illustrated, this book is primarily aimed at an audience of architecture students  as they start to understand complex conceptual, aesthetic and technical parameters of theory and design processes.  However, the straightforward style of the book and its practical synthesis will make it of interest to general audiences of clients and architects, whether local or foreign, who are not informed about the intricacies of designing for regional settings.

 

Integrating Project Delivery by Martin Fischer, Howard W. Ashcraft, Dean Reed and Atul Khanzode is the first comprehensive discussion of IPD, the emergent project delivery method that draws on each stakeholder's unique knowledge to address problems before they occur.

Written by authors with over a decade of research and practical experience, this book provides a primer on IPD for architects, designers, and students interested in this revolutionary approach to design and construction in which the team works together toward a shared goal instead of viewing one another as obstructions to progress.

With a focus on IPD in everyday operation, coverage includes a detailed explanation and analysis of IPD guidelines, with case studies that show how real companies are applying these guidelines on real-world projects.

End-of-chapter questions help readers quickly review what they've learned, and an online forum allows them to share their insights and ideas with others who either have or are in the process of implementing IPD themselves

Detailing the ‘why’ and ‘how’, Integrating Project Delivery helps students and practitioners alike develop a deep understanding of the value of an IPD system to bring stakeholders together early in the planning process to maximize talents and improve project clarity, execution, and, ultimately, success.

 

 

All titles will be available wherever books and ebooks are sold.

About the Authors/Guest-Editors

Design For Health AD

TERRI PETERS is a Canadian architect, writer and researcher now based in Toronto, who previously lived and worked in Denmark and the UK for 12 years. She has a broad network of multi-disciplinary collaborators, relating to sustainability research, building transformation, health and wellbeing, as well as the employment of new technologies.  She is a Post-Doctoral researcher at the University of Toronto, investigating the relationship between sustainable architecture and health, particularly analysing how architectural design can improve patient wellbeing in residential care environments.  She has organised conferences, served on discussion panels and award juries, and made presentations to various international construction industry and research institutions. She is the editor of two recent publications: Experimental Green Strategies: Redefining Ecological Design Research, AD (Wiley, 2011) and Inside Smartgeometry: Expanding the Architectural Possibilities of Computational Design (Wiley, 2013). 

Workflows AD

RICHARD GARBER, AIA, is a tenured Associate Professor and Director of the School of Architecture at New Jersey Institute of Technology's College of Architecture and Design. His work uses computer simulation and computer numerically controlled (CNC) hardware to generate innovative design, construction, and assembly solutions. He is also a partner in the award-winning New York City-based firm GRO Architects. Garber guest-edited Closing the Gap: Information Models in Contemporary Design Practice, AD (Wiley, 2009), and he is the author of BIM Design: Realising the Creative Potential of Building Information Modelling (Wiley, 2014).

Architecture in Context

HASSAN RADOINE is an architecture curator, critic, educator, author and consultant. He is currently the Director of the École Nationale d’Architecture (Morocco), and was previously the Head of the Architecture Department at the University of Sharjah (UAE). He received his first Architect Professional Diploma from the École Nationale d’Architecture. A Fulbright Scholar, he completed his MSc and PhD in Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, and as a Prince of Wales Scholar he also earned a second Master’s degree from the University of Wales. He has taught at the University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth College, University of Sharjah, American University of Sharjah, and Al Akhawayn University, and worked as an international expert for UNESCO, UN, UN-Habitat, ICCROM, MCC, and the Aga Khan Award for Architecture. A contributor to several journals and books, his research and practice explores architecture and urbanism in the Middle East and North Africa region.
