We often define space in relation to the physical dimensions and not according to the context around it. Analyzing a space before building is important as it can provide a greater insight into the whole process of building and increases the chances of problem solving. A space defines the pedestrian movement pattern and how they may be affected by all energies surrounding the site. This gets transported to the building that gets erected in that particular space and if not analyzed it might lead to a structure which can be termed as ‘architecture failure’. There is a religious and historical importance related to spaces and this adds a certain meaning to that particular space which needs to be understood.
He influenced modernism’s ambivalence regarding “tradition” and contemporary practice and the importance of technology in modernist design and ideology. This ‘tradition-modernity versus identity’ challange, represents one of the most essential elements in his architectural design and theoretical background of his work. By this, he influenced future generations of architects and paved the path for influential post-war architects as Kenzo Tange, Tadao Ando, and Toyo Ito. Is evident how in Maekawa works, the architectural space and form are being created in relation to architectural identity, in his case, Japanese architectural identity. Maekawa’s interests can be analyse from two sides: firstly from the idea that the creation of a new modern nation as essential to put Japan into the twentieth century.
Introduction The aim of this essay is to study the relationship between spaces, buildings and cities in deep and how they contribute to each other by learning from previous influential architectural principles in the early age and generate towards a new type of integrated theory for current Hong Kong architecture. Theoretical preliminary Space is created and enveloped by numbers of surfaces, which usually houses particular function. It is the core / spirit of architecture, which allows people to receive immediate primary sensation that architecture expresses. The sensation could be an expression of the architect or a memorial of special moment or events in different time period. According to Bryan Lawson, in his book “Language of Space”,
In these cases, new additions can be removed or to make the exterior more compatible with the character of the historic building (Grimmer and Weeks, 2010) to determine if an existing additions are significant or not. In addition, the roofline is important because it should be protecting the character and appearance of the existing building. New additions should be compatible with the historic building and the character of the neighborhood. Compatibility is achieved thorough application of the following design principles such as Structure, Massing, Materials, Roof Shapes, Details and Ornamentation, and Reversibility (Grimmer and Weeks, 2010). Mentioned information should be considered in the design of rooftop extension that would be discussed in this
“We need to be masters of communication and it is time that we realise that communication, considered broadly, is our most essential professional skill” (Pressman 1995 P 154) 1.0 Introduction There is a debate that modern architectural professionals need to change their approach in how they carry out their duties throughout building projects. The traditional “im in charge approach” adapted by architects in the past is no longer a sustainable approach in a construction industry where competition is increasing among architectural practices and design-build contractors to secure the investment of potential clients. The aim of this report is highlight some of the key areas in architectural practice where communication skills play a pivotal role
Without putting passion in place, you cannot get to the top in your industry, trade and practice. Passion carries people to the leading position in their trade and practice. 2. Passion is as important as a plan in building a house. Before building, an architect needs to draw the plan of the house to concentrate his focus and direction ahead of the proposed residential or nonresidential building.
We need to gather the specific requirements in order to determine a solution that can be communized by very industry. The cost of this new technology might struggle at it initial stage due to the fact that Stakeholders can be closed to new critics and designs. 1.1.1 Define the business or mission problem or opportunity We need to define the new business opportunities that this new system might have, and also to show and demonstrate how is is an improvement over old and convectional ones. Regulation in the gas industry shall always be in mind when we develop new products. Problems principally may come from government regulations and the question on how to satisfy those requirements in order to be an effective system that proves to be an upgrade in the performance division in this topic.
The key topics covered comprise of: - Principles of whole life building cost analysis. - The use of information and data sources for whole life building cost analysis. - The link between sustainable buildings and whole life cost analysis. - The mathematical models and calculations used in the whole life building cost analysis. This includes drawbacks and associated critics to these methods with respect to ascertaining
For design, the proposed parties to bear risk is professional design that is architects and engineers. Engineers and architects need to provide suitable design with functionality and usability of Komtar Tower for minimize the risk of such tower. Suitable design can provide comfort to the users of the building. It can also minimize the risk of increased construction costs due to design changes too frequently during the construction stage, which may cause delays in the completion time of the
The US has a long tradition of planning its cities, analysing their successes/failures and scholars who are on the frontier of the development in this field, making it an ideal place for education. Being in the currents and crosscurrents of various ideas, theories, experiments, histories and thoughts will give me a panoramic understanding of urban design and planning. Studying in a university in US will also be an opportunity to interact with professors and students from diverse backgrounds and learning from their experiences. Moreover, Living in a completely different context than mine, being a part of the daily life of a city and observing how built environment is impacting that life will be a learning experience
