Description: "When visiting a doctor, the design of the waiting and consultation rooms are perhaps the last things on one's mind, and many doctors might think that aesthetics take a back seat to the primary function of a medical practice. But should it? Can design play a role in making one feel better? Should a doctor's practice only be about the diagnosis, treatment, and prescription, or could it also be about the physical environment, architecture, reception, accessibility, quality, communication, and could this in turn influence one's mood? ... This book compiles 60 contemporary designs worldwide in a wide variety of fields, from dentistry and pediatrics, to traditional Chinese medicine, that are at the forefront of design ... Doctors' practices demonstrates today's architectural responses to the complex demands of healthcare - a very rapidly developing field, offering some of the finest, most innovative solutions in the world."

Accession No: 3775 
Author: Uffelen, Chris van 
Publisher: Braun Publishing 
Published Year: 2014 
No. of Pages: 301 
Description: Sacred buildings are among the oldest types of edifice produced in human civilisation. The construction of churches, synagogues, mosques and other building which are used for sacred, ritual or ceremonial acts is still considered the most prestigious of construction tasks. Next to functional demands, which are heavily ritualized in liturgical practice, the architects must concentrate particularly on the aesthetic expression. The space must operate as a framework for belief, with specific reference to the religion to be served. It must also be an appropriate stage for the experience of the divine service and concomitant spirituality. This volume shows exceptional examples of buildings from the various religions and denominations which often attain the status of works of art.

Accession No: 3773

Publisher: Braun Publishing 
Published Year: 2012 
No. of Pages: 255 
Description: Architecture for rescue services has come a long way in the past decade. Buildings for the police, fire brigades and ambulance stations have lost their often purely functional and shed-like appearance and have begun to strive for recognition as an equitable architectural typology since Zaha Hadids trailblazing Vitra fire station in Weil am Rhein. This building type certainly is a challenge as there are numerous conditions to be taken into account in terms of functionality and especially security. The examples chosen for this title show an amazing diversity of emergency architecture. The buildings presented frequently house more than one institution, using the latest technology and communication techniques to successfully combine different functions under one roof. The projects included range from the rural two-bay ambulance depot to police headquarters and airport fire departments.

Description: Affordable building lots in central locations in the large cities and metropolises are rare. When there are no available gaps in the urban structure, attic conversions and extensions are an interesting and favoured form of redensification. This volume explores approximately 60 attic projects, as extensions, conversions, or new construction, which utilise the previously used storage space for new use. Existing buildings are expanded upwards and adapted to the contemporary desires and demands of their use. Some constitute a homogenous extension of the existing facade and augment the view in a barely noticeable way. Others use the design freedom above the eave height in order to create a 21st century architecture which contrasts with the historical building substance.

In addition to the most significant projects of recent years, the most spectacular towers still under construction, as well as path-breaking experimental sketches are presented by means of texts, planning material and illustrations. Comprehensive tables give the most important performance markers and provide information about the central subjects specific to this type of building, like the vertical development, safety and energy concepts.
