In the past few decades, Cepezed has gained renown with transparent, sustainable and technologically progressive architecture that is remarkably usable and humane. Unaffected design, sober but stylish materialisation, and careful finishing are just as characteristic of Cepezeds oeuvre as the integration of spatial and construction-technical aspects. The design and building processes at cepezed are also integrated: the use of prefab components and the application of industrial building methods guarantee an optimum alignment of design and realisation, in which time, quality, and costs are meticulously planned and controlled. Prototypes documents a large number of key projects and deals extensively with the various aspects of product development, building process and architecture.

Book Description NAI 010 PUBLISHERS, 2007. Condition: AS NEW. COMO NUEVO. 295 pages. The architecture of Cepezed is informed by a great spatiality and a technically high-grade construction and detailing. During the good thirty years of its existence this Dutch firm has been the most consistent in devising and putting into practice the notion of an industrial architecture and building output. In this Cepezed shows itself to be less concerned with applying industrially manufactured construction products and components than with integrating architecture, product development and process management. The upshot of this integrated design practice is a spate of innovations in architecture, product and process alike and a comprehensive body of humane, easy-to-read, sustainable buildings, many of them constructed in steel.Prototypes sheds light on the industrialized, innovative character of Cepezed s architecture and working methods. Catalogue offers, with 38 projects, an overview of more than thirty years innovative design expertise. Seller Inventory # 978-90-645-0596-6
