Synopsis:

The first overview of how new digital design and fabrication techniques offer new possibilities for prototyping in architecture

Prototyping is an essential part of designers? repertoires, allowing them to test their projects from structural, aesthetic, and technical standpoints. Prototyping for Architects examines how architects are combining new digital design and fabrication technologies with traditional hands-on building techniques to gain more insight into the strengths and weaknesses of their designs.

Beginning with an introduction charting the rise of prototyping in design history, this cutting-edge volume for students and professionals presents an extensive range of prototyping techniques, followed by a selection of 30 projects by leading contemporary international architects.

Jane and Mark Burry explain how prototyping at a miniature scale helps communicate complex spatial ideas; how prototyping empowers the architect-designer to test and prove a building?s feasibility; and how additive (3D printing) or subtractive (robotic milling) prototyping can lead to exciting new design possibilities. A reference section, which includes a glossary of technical terms, offers further information and clarification. 500+ color illustrations

About the Author: Jane Burry holds a degree in mathematics and is a registered architect. She is currently a research fellow at RMIT?s Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory (SIAL) in Melbourne.

Mark Burry is professor and director of SIAL and founding director of RMIT?s Design Institute. He is an international expert on the architecture of Antoni Gaudí, and is currently using digital technology to help complete the Sagrada Família in Barcelona.

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 235 x 217 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Prototyping is an essential part of the designer s repertoire. Designers prototype their projects to test them, structurally, aesthetically, technically. Whether the prototype works or not is not the point: prototyping is the revelatory process through which the designer gains insight. There are three reasons why contemporary prototyping techniques are transforming the way architects design and build: at a miniature scale, prototyping aids the architect in the presentation to clients of complex spatial ideas; prototyping empowers the architect-designer to test and prove a building s feasibility, leading to more open-minded construction solutions; and whether additive (3D printing) or subtractive (robotic milling), prototyping can lead to unexpected and exciting new possibilities within design as a whole, across design disciplines, thus blurring the boundaries between them in highly creative ways. The book has four sections: an introduction that charts the rise of prototyping in design history, more specifically in architecture; an overview of techniques; a survey section featuring 30 projects, each presented through texts drawn from first-hand interviews, on-site photographs and drawings; and a reference section, which includes a glossary of technical terms.
