1. Architectural Design
1. ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

The study of architectural acoustics is a three‐dimensional endeavor. Sound moves in Cartesian space, in real rooms, and through planes that typically don’t precisely align with section and plan cuts.

But architectural acoustics also maintains the three dimensions loudness, frequency, and time, which, for reader ownership of subject content, must be evaluated simultaneously. Thus, the study of architectural acoustics is itself an act of architecture—and architectural acoustics, as discussed in this event, sits under the broader umbrella of design

AGE OF GLASS.png

Industrialists surveying the ongoing age of glass have sought to pinpoint their favored substance’s origin, adding layers of history, nostalgia, and even romance to their product line.

“Pompeii, awakened from a slumber of seventeen hundred years, has proved the existence of window glass in the days of the early emperors. In a small chamber, attached to the bathing room of a private dwelling-house, excavated about the year 1763, was found, ‘a window, which, . . . still held, when it was found, four panes of glass.

MASONRY.png

The formative and aes­thetic power of the natural resistance inherent in a material is simply eliminated through sub­stitution. This "virtual" approach to design makes building materials arbitrary in a synthe­sizing manner. Resistance is not tolerated. Layering and jointing, the simplicity of building turns out to be antagonistic. Being simple is not the same as being accommodating. Simplicity tends to baffle and amaze because it contains what is basic and renders it visible.

In this event a variety of posi­tions against the background of the history of masonry will be  explored. They are by no means intended as examples for contemporary building but allow us to draw conclusions with regard to our own perception. These conclusions, in turn, can alter our present perspectives, thereby making a contribution to current issues in designing masonry structures.

ANCIENT ORIENT 2.png

The art of the ancient Near East occupies a peculiar position, in that it brought into being many of the artistic categories which we take for granted. When, in Egypt or Mesopotamia, men built monumental temples or erected statues, or steles, they discovered modes of expression without precedent. These innovations in the field of art constitute but one aspect of a change by which prehistoric cultures were transformed into the first great civilizations.

OBJECT.png

Malgrave is the author of the book " From Object to Experience " which forms the basis of this CPD event. According to Sarah Robonsin " no one could deny that architects are essentially makers. We create the plans that, in the complex collaboration that making involves, become buildings, artifacts, and cities. We draw boundaries, lay down lines, define paths along which our daily lives unfold. The grooves of habit are deepened along the routes suggested by the material world, and it is we who arrange, organize, and transform that physical domain. Yet how exactly do we arrive at the declaration that architects make culture? Is culture something higher, set apart from the matter of walls, roofs, paths, and streets? Or, is culture the amalgam of myriad forces—the climate of place, the economic and social affordances offered by light and topography, a compound of collective human habits—those very habits that we have a hand in directing? "

DRAINAGE.png

lt has been recognised from the earliest times that drainage, whether natural or artificial, is essential to the health and comfort of mankind . . . ‘

 

There is evidence that at the Palace of Knossos in Crete a drainage system existed before 1500 BC . . . Excavations have revealed that stone ducts and terracotta pipes conveyed rain water from roofs and terraces to a main drain and provision was made for flushing it with rainwater. Drainage pipes were tapered so that the narrowed end of one fitted into the next.
