Drawing from the Model: Fundamentals of Digital Drawing, 3D Modeling, and Visual Programming in Architectural Design
By Frank Melendez

Drawing from the Model: Fundamentals of Digital Drawing, 3D Modeling, and Visual Programming in Architectural Design presents architectural design students, educators, and professionals with a broad overview of traditional and contemporary architectural representation methods. The book offers insights into developments in computing in relation to architectural drawing and modeling, by addressing historical analog methods of architectural drawing based on descriptive geometry and projection, and transitioning to contemporary digital methods based on computational processes and emerging technologies.

2019 THE BLINDSPOT INITIATIVE: DESIGN RESISTANCE AND ALTERNATIVE MODES OF PRACTICE

2019 BLINDSPOT INITIATIVE.jpg

The Blindspot Initiative: Design Resistance and Alternative Modes of Practice
Edited by Jose Sanchez

The Blindspot Initiative: Design Resistance and Alternative Modes of Practice documents the professional work of twenty-one design practices that are expanding their respective fields and hybridizing traditional design outputs through the intersection of other disciplines. The expansion of architectural and design practices toward the domain of robotics, material science, film, simulation, or software, redefine the skillsets required to engage with creative output that challenges the conventions of established domains.

2019 URBAN MACHINES: PUBLIC SPACE FOR A DIGITAL CULTURE

2019 URBAN MACHINES.jpg

URBAN MACHINES: PUBLIC SPACE FOR A DIGITAL CULTURE
Authors: Marcella Del Signore and Gernot Riether

At the beginning of the 21st century digital technology disrupted city life. The use of ICTs (information and communication technologies) has radically changed the way we inhabit and operate in the urban space. Over the last few decades an increasingly collaborative and interdisciplinary work developed by architects, artists, urban and media designers has defined a particular landscape of projects that engage information technology as a catalytic tool for expanding, augmenting and altering public and social interactions in the urban space. Through essays, case studies and conversations, this book aims to present a critical historic overview of the impact of information technologies on the physical public space while providing an inspiring vision of possible future scenarios for the public realm in a digital culture.

2018 FROM AMBIENT ENVIRONMENTS TO SENTIENT SPACES

2018-The Interior Architecture Theory Reader.jpg

The Interior Architecture Theory Reader
Edit by Gregory Marinic

The book presents a global compilation that collectively and specifically defines interior architecture. Diverse views and comparative resources for interior architecture students, educators, scholars, and practitioners are needed to develop a proper canon for this young discipline. As a theoretical survey of interior architecture, the book examines theory, history, and production to embrace a full range of interior identities in architecture, interior design, digital fabrication, and spatial installation. Authored by leading educators, theorists, and practitioners, fifty chapters refine and expand the discourse surrounding interior architecture.

2017 Active Public Space

APS_HowToGuide_cover-21.jpg

How To Guide: Implementing Technology Towards Active Public Space
Edited by Areti Markopoulou, Chiara Farinea, Mathilde Marengo

Murmur Wall and Datagrove are both included in the online publication, alongside an amazing group of designers!

From the publication: "The "Implementing technology towards active public space. “How to” Guide” consists of a series of high-quality learning materials addressing how to transform public space into smart public space. It includes the presentation of a series of existing smart urban technologies and a series of suggestions-proposals on how to apply these technologies in the public space. In this way, the Guide contributes to bridge the knowledge gap between smart urban technologies and architects, urban-planners and creatives working on public spaces. On the other hand, the Guide can also benefit engineers and telecommunication experts who are working on developing and applying technologies in the public space, but feel they lack basic knowledge and principles in architecture, urban and sustainable design."

HYDRAMAX: PORTMACHINES

Featuring Jason Kelly Johnson + Nataly Gattegno

ISBN 978-1-922129-01-7

Book Summary

Kerb Edition 20 examines ways in which speculative narrative discourse can be applied to landscape architecture. Through exploring Fabricated foundations, Fossilisation of information, and Contemporary unfoldings, we can navigate new horizons for the narratives of landscape architecture that propel beyond responsive tracings, and position new navigations; forms of resistance to the existing knowledge. It is through this view in landscape architecture that exploration is facilitated of both new possibilities and of their implications.
