Construire l'architecture

Dictionary Of Architecture And Construction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Construire l'architecture by Andrea Deplazes Book Summary:

De quel savoir technique et constructif a-t-on besoin pour réaliser des projets architecturaux variés? "Construire l'architecture " propose pour la première fois en français une vue d'ensemble des principes fondamentaux de la conception architecturale. Couronné par plusieurs prix internationaux et traduit en six langues, cet ouvrage s'est imposé comme manuel de cours dans de nombreuses grandes écoles depuis sa parution en 2005. Il constitue par ailleurs un instrument de référence indispensable pour tous les architectes qui conçoivent le processus de construction comme un rapport dialectique complexe entre conception et mise en œuvre des matériaux. Optant pour une approche globale de la construction, cet ouvrage combine connaissances techniques et questions esthétiques et les envisage conjointement dans la perspective de l'histoire des civilisations. La construction n'y est pas conçue comme une simple question de technique ou de technologie, mais aussi comme le résultat d'une intention artistique qui se concrétisera avec d'autant plus de cohérence et de force que l'architecte maîtrisera les principes techniques et constructifs de base. Le livre se subdivise en quatre chapitres - Matériaux - Modules, Eléments, Structures, Edifices - et contient en annexe un catalogue présentant les éléments de construction. Tous les édifices cités satisfont à de hautes exigences esthétiques ou jouent un rôle de premier plan dans l'histoire de l'architecture. D'une grande richesse iconographique, cet ouvrage contient plus de 1400 illustrations, plans et dessins de détails légendés. Le catalogue permet de comparer les détails de construction à l'échelle 1:20. Une table des matières détaillée et des titres courants à toutes les pages facilitent l'orientation et la recherche ciblée d'information.

Dictionary of Building and Civil Engineering

Dictionary Of Architecture And Construction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Dictionary of Building and Civil Engineering by N.A Book Summary:

In the last few decades civil engineering has undergone substantial technological change which has, naturally, been reflected in the terminology employed in the industry. Efforts are now being made in many countries to bring about a systematization and unification of technical terminology in general, and that of civil engineering in particular. The publication of a multilingual dictionary of civil engineering terms has been necessitated by the expansion of international cooperation and information exchange in this field, as well as by the lack of suitable updated bilingual dictionaries. This Dictionary contains some 14.000 English terms together with their German, French, Dutch and Russian equivalents, which are used in the main branches of civil engineering and relate to the basic principles of structural design and calculations (the elasticity theory, strength of materials, soil mechanics and other allied technical disciplines); to buildings and installations, structures and their parts, building materials and prefabrications, civil engineering technology and practice, building and road construction machines, construction site equipment, housing equipment and fittings (including modern systems of air conditioning); as well as to hydrotechnical and irrigation constructions. The Dictionary also includes a limited number of basic technical expressions and terms relating to allied disciplines such as architecture and town planning, as well as airfield, railway and underground construction. The Dictionary does not list trade names of building materials, parts and machines or the names of chemical compounds. Nor does it give adverbial, adjective or verbal terms.

Teaching and Learning Terminology

Dictionary Of Architecture And Construction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Teaching and Learning Terminology by Amparo Alcina Book Summary:

This volume, which was originally published in Terminology 15:1 (2009), presents and reflects on experiences dealing with terminology training, from a theoretical, practical and professional perspective. Terminology is part of the programmes of several (post)graduate courses, such as Translating and Interpreting, Applied Languages, Information Science and other disciplines. Especially terminology practice has changed drastically over the years and training in terminology must adapt to this new reality. Drawing on years of experience in teaching this subject at various academic levels and in diverse ways, we explore what to teach about terminology, how to teach it, how it is learned, what experiences are put into practice with what result, and how to connect the knowledge taught at universities and other institutions to the practical skills that are required from professionals in different areas, e.g. translators, information scientists, knowledge engineers, with respect to their knowledge of terminology.

Why Architecture Matters

Dictionary Of Architecture And Construction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Why Architecture Matters by Paul Goldberger Book Summary:

Why Architecture Matters is not a work of architectural history or a guide to the styles or an architectural dictionary, though it contains elements of all three. The purpose of Why Architecture Matters is to come to grips with how things feel to us when we stand before them, with how architecture affects us emotionally as well as intellectually--with its impact on our lives. Architecture begins to matter, writes Paul Goldberger, when it brings delight and sadness and perplexity and awe along with a roof over our heads. He shows us how that works in examples ranging from a small Cape Cod cottage to the vast, flowing Prairie houses of Frank Lloyd Wright, from the Lincoln Memorial to the highly sculptural Guggenheim Bilbao and the Church of Sant'Ivo in Rome, where simple geometries . . . create a work of architecture that embraces the deepest complexities of human imagination. Based on decades of looking at buildings and thinking about how we experience them, the distinguished critic raises our awareness of fundamental things like proportion, scale, space, texture, materials, shapes, light, and memory. Upon completing this remarkable architectural journey, readers will enjoy a wonderfully rewarding new way of seeing and experiencing every aspect of the built world.
