Abstract

3D City Models and urban information: Current issues and perspectives European COST Action TU0801 R. Billen, A.-F. Cutting-Decelle, O. Marina, J.-P. de Almeida, Caglioni M., G. Falquet, T. Leduc, C. Métral, G. Moreau, J. Perret, G. Rabin, R. San Jose, I. Yatskiv and S. Zlatanova Considering sustainable development of cities implies investigating cities in a holistic way taking into account many interrelations between various urban or environmental issues. 3D city models are increasingly used in different cities and countries for an intended wide range of applications beyond mere visualization. Could these 3D City models be used to integrate urban and environmental knowledge? How could they be improved to fulfill such role? We believe that enriching the semantics of current 3D city models, would extend their functionality and usability; therefore, they could serve as integration platforms of the knowledge related to urban and environmental issues allowing a huge and significant improvement of city sustainable management and development. But which elements need to be added to 3D city models? What are the most efficient ways to realize such improvement / enrichment? How to evaluate the usability of these improved 3D city models? These were the questions tackled by the COST Action TU0801 “Semantic enrichment of 3D city models for sustainable urban development”. This book gathers various materials developed all along the four year of the Action and the significant breakthroughs.

Abstract

Heidelberg University; History; Art

Die Aula der Alten Universität ist Festsaal und Herzkammer der Ruperto Carola und veranschaulicht in Allegorien und Metaphern Geschichte und Selbstverständnis der ältesten Universität im heutigen Deutschland. Urspränglich in barocker Ausgestaltung erbaut, wurde sie zum 500. Bestehen der Universität komplett umgestaltet. Der vom Groheräzog von Baden gestiftete prachtvolle Raum präsentiert sich heute als eines der wenigen intakt erhaltenen Ensembles der Karlsruher Holzschnitzschule und wird überwiegend für akademische Feiern wie Antrittsvorlesungen neuberufener Professoren oder Absolventenfeiern genutzt. Die Aula ist jedoch auch ein Ort für öffentliche Konzerte und Vorträge, denen das ehrwärdige Ambiente dieses Saals einen besonderen Glanz verleihen soll.

Abstract

How does one become a recognized architect? Where does the inspiration come from and how is it transformed into buildings, streets and cities? With his Architectural Journal Rob Krier takes the readers on a fascinating journey, guiding one through pivotal moments of early stages of his career as an architect. With a sense of humour, empathy and charm Krier tells a story of his professional path, starting with holidays spent with his grandparents, images, colors and smells that shaped his future choices. He talks about his triumphs and stumbles, giving an intimate insight into the architectural profession, deprived of any pretence to eternal greatness and heroic narrative. The journal encompasses 15 formative years of Krier’s career, starting from architectural studies in Munich, through trips and temporary settlements in Luxemburg, Stuttgart and Lausanne. Krier’s memories are accompanied by theoretical texts. Here he touches upon architect’s responsibilities, importance of historical legacy and exhorts to boycott ugliness in the name of beauty. Striving for something else than pure functionality in architecture, Krier calls for poetical approach, so characteristic for his work, stating: Poetry is in the breath of the building, the aroma that exudes from all its nooks”. Rob Krier is one of the most influential architects and urban planners of the second half of the 20th century. His theoretical writings deal with the idea of town planning informed by traditional notions of harmony, civic space and community.

Abstract

Research regarding the significance and consequence of anthropogenic transformations of the earth’s land, oceans, biosphere and climate have demonstrated that, from a wide variety of perspectives, it is very likely that humans have initiated a new geological epoch, their own. First labeled the Anthropocene by the chemist Paul Crutzen, the consideration of the merits of the Anthropocene thesis by the International Commission on Stratigraphy and the International Union of Geological Sciences has also garnered the attention of philosophers, historians, and legal scholars, as well as an increasing number of researchers from a range of scientific backgrounds. Architecture in the Anthropocene: Encounters Among Design, Deep Time, Science and Philosophy intensifies the potential of this multidisciplinary discourse by bringing together essays, conversations, and design proposals that respond to the “geological imperative” for contemporary architecture scholarship and practice. Contributors include Nabil Ahmed, Meghan Archer, Adam Bobbette, Emily Cheng, Heather Davis, Sara Dean, Seth Denizen, Mark Dorrian, Elizabeth Grosz, Lisa Hirmer, Jane Hutton, Eleanor Kaufman, Amy Catania Kulper, Clinton Langevin, Michael C.C. Lin, Amy Norris, John Palmesino, Chester Rennie, François Roche, Ann-Sofi Rönnskog, Isabelle Stengers, Paulo Tavares, Etienne Turpin, Eyal Weizman, Jane Wolff, Guy Zimmerman.

Abstract

The book takes up the (post-)operaist concept of immaterial labour (cf. Maurizio Lazzarato: 1998, Toni Negri, Michael Hardt: 2000) and relates it to spatial processes and architectural projects from the 1960s. The book’s title is the hypotheses of its investigation. It allows to be exemplified with the following questions: Do we find, parallel to a dominant cultural practice of immaterial labour new forms and orders of architecture? Which forms does it take on? Or does workplace architecture disappear at all parallel to the blurring of the formerly clearly marked spaces of the factory?

Das Buch nimmt das (post-)operaistische Konzept der immateriellen Arbeit (Maurizio Lazzarato: 1998, Toni Negri, Michael Hardt: 2000) auf und setzt es mit räumlichen Strukturierungsprozessen und Phänomenen der 1960er Jahre in Verbindung. So ist der Titel des vorliegenden Buches auch die Hypothese der Untersuchungen und lässt sich durch folgende Leitfragen explizieren: Finden sich mit der heute in den westlichen Industrienationen dominierenden kulturellen Praxis der immateriellen Arbeit auch neue Formen und Ordnungen der Architektur? Oder verschwindet mit den klar definierten Räumen der Fabrik auch die Arbeitsarchitektur im Allgemeinen?Dabei wird Architektur als Mittel der Subjektivierung und als Teil der Organisation und Repräsentation von Produktionsprozessen verstanden, die direkt an die disparaten Formen des Kapitalismus angeschlossen ist. In ihren herausragenden Beispielen kristallisieren sich die Vorstellungen, wie Menschen sich versammeln, wie Menschen produktiv gemacht werden können und wie man die Versammlung von Menschen kontrolliert und steuert. Im vorliegenden Buch bespreche ich signifikante Beispiele von Arbeitsarchitekturen der 1960er Jahre, die sich im gesellschaftlichen Diskursfeld rund um Automation und Freizeitgesellschaft aufspannen. Sie erlauben, die Konturen einer Architektur zu analysieren, die die Tendenz veränderter Produktionsmodi und Arbeitsbedingungen einer wertschöpfenden, immateriellen Tätigkeit im Moment ihres Entstehens modellhaft sichtbar macht. Im ersten Teil gehe ich auf die Mobilisierung der vormals geschlossenen Produktionsräume ein. Anhand der weltweit ersten realisierten Bürolandschaft Buch und Ton für den Bertelsmann-Konzern, ihrer architektonischen Antithese, des Bürobaus für die niederländische Versicherungsanstalt Centraal Beheer und des emanzipatorisch konzipierten Freizeitprojekts Fun Palace bespreche ich die Versuche, einer neuen gesellschaftlichen und wirtschaftlichen Theorie nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg – der Kybernetik – eine (architektonische) Form und Organisation zu geben und zeige die räumlichen Konsequenzen dieser Bemühungen auf. Im zweiten Teil diskutiere ich Strategien des Einrichtens: Das experimentelle Architekturprojekt Mobile Office, die Performance Bed-In und das Freizeitprojekt Gelbes Herz stehen dabei für verschiedene Strategien, mit einer neuen Lebenskonzeption und ihren räumlichen Bedingungen umzugehen. Zugleich formulieren die Projekte auf unterschiedliche Weise eine architektonische Praxis, die einem Konzept von Arbeit, die mit dem Leben konvergiert und sich in der Gesellschaft verteilt, Genüge leistet.

Abstract

Architectural drawings of the ›German Renaissance‹ have, with a few exceptions, remained unexplored objects. This is contrasted by the vast amount of surviving objects, of which roughly 8.000 drawings from the 16th to the early 17th century originate from the German territories. Despite being neglected for a long time, these drawings, however, convey a diverse picture of building in theory and practice, and are characterized by remarkable variations in their depiction of architecture.Aside from the various historical uses of the drawings, a closer examination can reveal the historical conditions for and the impacts of architectural drawing in general. The present study, therefore, aims to categorise the architectural drawings in order to extract their implied knowledge and to embed them in their respective historic discourses and epistemic systems.The main argument is that architectural drawings were not only tools for the design process of castles, gardens, civic buildings, or fortresses. Instead, they were part of complex communication processes, and were crucial objects of preserving architectural knowledge and invention. Architectural drawings should rather be understood as ›significant objects‹ (»Bedeutungsträger«) of cultural practices, conveying historic concepts of space and built environments.In order to determine the very diverse aspects of the architectural drawing in the Northern Renaissance, this study is based upon a select number of drawings from various regions of the German states and newly discovered written sources. Due to the lack of architectural drawings in the northern regions of Germany, the majority of the selected drawings are from the south and middle-east of Germany (e.g. in Dresden, Nuremberg, or Kassel).The lack of contemporary art historical studies on ›German Renaissance‹ architectural drawings has made it even more crucial to focus on historic material. Therefore, this study provides written sources dealing with concepts of ›drawing theories‹, as well as the thus far unknown concept of a treatise depicting design processes and functions of architectural drawings.In order to rethink the ›visual culture‹ of architectural drawings of the ›German Renaissance‹, this study relies on traditional art historical and historical methods (»Quellenkritik«) to evaluate the written and drawn sources, and on methods of media studies and visual studies (»Bildwissenschaft«) to disclose pictorial strategies of visualization and communication.This book is structured in four main chapters dealing with theory and profession, function and impact, practice, and design techniques of architectural drawings between 1500 and 1650 in the German countries. While the first three chapters are concerned with the theory, design techniques, historic, and social context of the drawings, the fourth chapter presents case studies reflecting their function, use, and impact.Although this analysis is hugely concerned with objects originating from the Holy Roman Empire, it aims to reconstruct a general idea of the complex phenomena of production, visualization, communication, display, and collecting of knowledge by the means of architectural drawings, which can easily be applied to objects from any other ›region‹ of that period.While being mainly used for common design processes, architectural drawings are defined by their wide-ranging utilisation, ranging from legal documents to material in the civic and princely education. It can be observed that draughtsmen of architectural drawings come from heterogeneous backgrounds to include not only architects, engineers, and town master masons, but also goldsmiths, structural draughtsmen, musicians, and even princes themselves. Accordingly, drawings could be plain administrative documents or, at times, valuable collection pieces, which is reflected in their depository – objects could be found at various places at the court or civic administration such as the registry, the library, and the armoury, but also in the Cabinet of Curiosities, or in the architect’s personal archive.Even with only a small number of known approaches theorizing architectural drawings and design practices during the 16th century, it is possible to reveal a broad influence on drawing theories, especially by perspective treatises and the so-called »Visier- und Messkunst« (measuring).Reconstructing the various places of producing, collecting, displaying, and studying architectural drawings shows that architectural drawings were a crucial part in cultural processes of understanding, organizing, and dealing with the built environment.

Architekturzeichnungen sind nicht nur Medien zur Planung und Visualisierung von Architektur, sondern bedeutende Quellen historischer Entwurfstheorien, Entwurfspraktiken und Wissensproduktion. Während italienische Architekturzeichnungen etablierte Quellen der Renaissanceforschung sind, wird hier erstmals der Blick auf bislang vernachlässigte Zeichnungen der ›deutschen Renaissance‹ gelegt. Die vorliegende Studie untersucht sowohl die zeichnerischen Darstellungstechniken und Theorien als auch ihre allgemeine Bedeutung als Form- und Wissensspeicher. Der Autor analysiert dabei etwa die variable Verwendung der Zeichnungen vom Entwurfsmedium über das Rechtsdokument bis hin zur Prinzenerziehung und hebt den Stellenwert von Zeichnung und Zeichnungstheorie für verschiedene Professionen sowie das Selbstverständnis der Architekten hervor. Zudem werden erste Einblicke in die fürstliche und reichsstädtische Sammlungsgeschichte von Architekturzeichnungen in Kunstkammern, Bibliotheken und Kanzleien gegeben. Anhand von exemplarischen Fallstudien und neu erschlossenem Quellenmaterial werden so nicht nur neue Einsichten in die Funktionen und Semantiken zeichnerischer Produktion eröffnet, sondern auch übergreifende Fragen der historischen Wahrnehmung von Architektur in der Frühen Neuzeit verhandelt.Sebastian Fitzner wurde 2013 im Fach Kunstgeschichte an der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität bei Prof. Dr. Stephan Hoppe promoviert und war wissenschaftlicher Assistent am Institut für Kunstgeschichte der LMU (2010–2014).

Abstract

"Os ambientes litorâneos foram os primeiros ocupados pelo homem europeu no Brasil e apresentam, nos dias atuais, elevados índices de urbanização.Tais ambientes possuem elevado grau de suscetibilidade ambiental devido as suas características intrínsecas, tais como propriedades litológicas, hidrológicas, geomorfológicas, climáticas e biogeográficas. É neste contexto que se insere a região litorânea do estado de São Paulo, na qual a intensa atividade turística, os portos, as indústrias e o desenvolvimento urbano, associados a sua fragilidade, geram um alto grau de alteração. Na Baixada Santista, localizada no setor central do litoral do estado, a problemática principal relaciona-se à urbanização sobre os terrenos planos e inconsistentes da planície quaternária e sobre as vertentes íngremes dos Morros Isolados. Assim, têm-se problemas relacionados a enchentes, movimentos de massa nas encostas e instabilidade das fundações das construções. Diante desse cenário, os projetos de planejamento devem considerar que a qualidade de vida de moradores e turistas depende de ações adequadas, fundamentadas em bases sólidas de conhecimento, visando à conservação e manutenção das características ambientais. Os estudos que integram esta obra investigam as interações entre as características físicas da Baixada Santista e a ocupação desses terrenos. Ao analisar tais interações, busca-se realizar um diagnóstico das condições ambientais da Baixada Santista, apontando problemáticas ambientais municipais a serem gerenciadas pelo poder público nos processos de planejamento."
