Architecture in context

by THE PLAN | 01 October 2018
Category: Architecture
Synopsis
How do you design a distinctive building that also fits seamlessly into its context? How do you add value to a site yet at the same time acknowl- edge its identity? Architecture in Context attempts to answer these questions with a carefully selected series of international, public/private, large- and small-scale projects, all of which demonstrate just that sensitiv- ity to their environmental, cultural and social contexts. Each project is accompanied by a descriptive and critical text and illustrated with photographs and drawings. Ranging from initial concept sketches through to detailed construction drawings, the reader is given a full overview of the whole design process from ideation to construction. Presenting different use programs, from airports to museums, schools, private houses, public build- ings, hotels, and industrial sites, the projects in this volume illustrate the different ways in which context can be interpreted, and the many different architectural achievements that result. With works by the most respected contemporary architects around the world, such as Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Steven Holl Architects, Giancarlo Maz- zanti Arquitectos, Neutelings Riedijk Architects, and 3XN.
