Eco: An Essential Sourcebook for Environmentally Friendly Design and Decoration

by Elizabeth Wilhide, Quadrille (Publisher)
Jones-Johnson Residence
The world stands on the brink of an environmental crisis and the scale of the problem is daunting. But if everyone played their part, the cumulative benefit to the environment would be far-reaching. And where better to start than in our own homes? A must-have reference book with the most up-to-date information, plus inspirational photographs, "Eco "proves that sustainability in the home is both achievable and beautiful. In the first part, Design, Elizabeth Wilhide focuses on the fundamentals to be considered, whether you are planning home improvements or building a house from scratch. These include siting, construction, energy efficiency, water and waste, gardening, and landscaping. Fifteen case studies demonstrate how architects from around the world have tackled these issues and succeeded in creating sustainable yet aspirational, liveable homes. The second part, Surfaces and Finishes, provides an illustrated directory of the materials and surface finishes that are available to the eco-conscious homeowner, ranging from wood, bamboo, paper, and natural fibers to stone, linoleum, glass, metal, recycled plastic, and concrete. Finally, In Practice offers strategies for eco-living that deliver maximum benefit with minimal changes of lifestyle. These are strategies--reducing consumption, repairing rather than replacing, recycling wherever possible--that everyone can adopt, whatever sort of home you live in. Whether you follow "Eco" to the letter or adopt a more piecemeal approach, you can relax in the knowledge that every little bit counts. You will enjoy lower fuel bills and fewer allergy-related illnesses, but above all, you will be helping to make the world a healthierplace for future generations. Jones-Johnson Residence

Hot Dirt, Cool Straw: Nature Friendly Houses For 21st (Twenty-First) Century Living

by Nora Richter Greer (Author), Dennis Wedlick (Author), James Grayson Trulove (Author), Hearst Book Intl (Publisher)
Jones-Johnson Residence Low Compound
Each of these 24 U.S. houses is accompanied by location, architect, architectural plans, several color photos, and a color key indicating whether the house was a) integrated into the landscape, b) used sustainable/replenishable building materials, or c) employed energy-efficient methods. More often than not, the brief descriptions and large photographs are more concerned with site placement and floor plans than ecological building supplies and energy systems, a volume more for the architectural firm coffee table than the building supplier's office. No index, bibliography, or notes. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Green Architecture (Architecture & Design)

by James Wines (Author), Taschen (Publisher)
APS Environmental Showcase Home
When is a house ecological? Does the use of natural materials and solar cells on the roof make a building an example of ""green"" architecture? Perhaps even Antoni Gaud and Frank Lloyd Wright designed ""greener"" buildings than most contemporary architects, whose low-energy houses scarcely differ outwardly from traditional ones. James Wines puts up the various - and often irreconcilable - concepts of environmentally-friendly architecture for discussion, making a case for an architecture that not only focuses on technological solutions, but also tries to reconcile man and nature in its formal idiom. Among the examples of contemporary ecological architecture presented are works by Emilio Ambasz, Gustav Peichl, Arthur Quarmby, Jean Nouvel, Sim Van der Ryn, Jourda and Perraudin, Log ID, James Cutler, Stanley Saitowitz, Franois Roche, Nigel Coates and Michael Sorkin.

Experimental Architecture: Houses (Universe Architecture Series 2004)

by Jacobo Krauel (Author), Tim Hursley (Photographer), Universe (Publisher)
The Walner Residence
The buildings selected for this book have little in common-they come from different cities across the globe and represent the work of some of the world's most accomplished architects, who often have vastly different outlooks, each radically defying convention and producing innovative alternatives for residential spaces. Each project is profiled with images of the completed construction, reproductions of the layouts and floorplans, and a description of how the design came to be. Some architects highlight the obstacles inherent in working with a particular site, while others discuss how the clients and their lifestyles were the chief elements around which they designed the house. Each profile demonstrates what makes the project unique and what source provided the impetus or inspiration for designing the house in that particular way. All these houses defy expectations and explode the notion of what "experimental" means in residential architecture. The Walner Residence

Building with Earth: Design and Technology of a Sustainable Architecture.

Gernot Minke (Author), Birkhäuser (Publisher)
Low Compound
Fourth and revised edition of the standard work of reference on rammed earth construction Earth, in common use for architectural construction for thousands of years, has in the past thirty years attracted renewed attention as a healthy, environment-friendly and economical building material. What needs to be considered in this context? The manual "Building with Earth", which has been translated into many languages, describes the building technology of this material. The physical properties and characteristic values are explained in a hands-on manner: With proper moisture protection, earth buildings are very durable, and in particular the combination with wood or straw allows a wide spectrum of design options. Numerous built examples demonstrate the range of applications for this fully recyclable material. Low Compound, Scottsdale, Arizona, USA pg 148

Jones Studio Houses: Sensual Modernism

by Oscar Riera Ojeda (Editor), Vladimir Belogolovsky (Interviewer), Aaron Betsky (Introduction), Oscar Riera Ojeda Publishers (Publisher)
Jones Studio Houses: Sensual Modernism
“JONES STUDIO HOUSES Sensual Modernism” is a self-imposed limited look at the 40-year-plus career of Eddie Jones. Almost unheard of outside the southwest United States, Jones has quietly accumulated a body of work ranging beyond residential design to include major federal projects impacting the edges of America... to be featured in a soon to be published monograph! Supported by Aaron Betsky’s insightful forward, plus an enlightening interview with Vladimir Belogolovsky, and comments from many of his famous colleagues, Jones summarizes his lifelong dance with architecture through the personal stories embedded in each house. Refusing to repeat himself, the work tests the reality of gravity on a diverse spectrum of interpretive vernacular responses to climate, landscape and function. Although designed by the same hand, the forms vary as much as the choice of materials. Rammed earth, concrete, wood and metal are explored together and separately yet remain subordinate to Jones’ fascination with glass. Utilizing photographs, hand-drawings and first-person accounts, the motivations and joy of being an architect are expressed by an exceptional whole informed by many ordinary parts.

Power / Architecture

by Jorge Carvalho (Editor), Ricardo Carvalho (Editor), Pedro Bandeira (Editor), Lars Müller Publishers
Mariposa Land Port of Entry
Power and architecture are fundamental to the question of how contemporary society and architecture work together. Since power lacks a comprehensive logic, coherence and instrumentalization capability, the question refers both to the autonomous powers of the architectural forms and to a set of external powers represented through architecture. The presented series of projects based on current and extreme syntheses of comprehensive and complex world views enables mapping a network of powers that align, intersect, inflect and diverge from each other: collective power, ordaining power, economic power, technological power, ritual power, cultural power, media power and domestic power. The issue of counter power is then discussed against this background. Through eight essays by contributors, along with images, drawings and documents, the book renders visible a set of entities, informal conventions, stakeholders and means involved in the creation of architecture; that is, the dynamics of the collective that ceaselessly tests the architectural composition of the common world. With selected projects by Herzog & de Meuron, Rem Koolhaas, Eduardo Souto de Moura and many more.
