Description: Research building is a very comprehensive architectural structure, and it must meet requirements on aspects of functional area, technical equipment, economic cost and law. They represent innovative means of production -that is why the design of research building is always changing. According to the changes in the field of scientific research, the challenges faced by research architecture are how to make the high-tech equipments merged into the environment with better communication and how to integrate the institution itself into the atmosphere of communication and interaction through design. The former strictly functional organization is bound to be replaced by the beneficial communication cycle. This book presents us that technical improvements are not necessarily the key to the design of great research buildings. The best research buildings position the researchers as the most creative agents in the process of scientific experiments. The building is not a machine which the scientists manipulate but a tooth at the macroscopic level. Meanwhile it is also a cultural construction with collaborative cohesion and creating imaginative."

Description: Citizens in retirement age are becoming an ever greater but also more active part of society. Along with this socio-cultural shift a new emphasis on living quality and atmosphere in the home emerges instead of simply functionality and cleanliness. In contrast to the general idea of retirement home the residences of today are superbly designed and furnished service domiciles. Care and medical support are of course part of the extensive offer. Common areas and services can, but must not be used. A winning design is a powerful argument in the competition among the providers. The buildings selected for this book are tailored to the special, very individual needs of today's senior citizens.

Description: Stations play a vital role for passengers and non-travelling users which they are located. They serve the growing needs of an increasingly mobile population and are used by a wide range of users. Stations are also primarily a means of access to the national rail network, in turn acting as a gateway to or from other destinations. They have become increasingly important as destinations in their own right as places to shop, work, or simply to meet family and friends. Most stations also function as interchange hubs, providing connections between different transport modes. With millions of journeys made by urban rail each day, designers should recognize the importance of its customers and the need to put passengers first. To ensure that the expectations of its customers are met in full, the design guide in this book places passengers at the forefront of the design process, acknowledging that all elements of station design should be considered to help meet their needs. This book also provides an overview of what designer considers to be important in the planning and design of metro stations and light rail stations. It will be relevant to new or enhancement projects as well as to major renewals or maintenance projects. This book is intended to support sponsors and project designers throughout the design and development process. It is hoped that all parties involved in station design and operations will find its approach useful and consistent with their own design approach or standards."
