TIME, SPACE AND MATERIAL: THE MECHANICS OF LAYERING IN ARCHITECTURE. Anne-Catrin Schultz. Edition Axel Menges GmbH, Stuttgart, 2015. 80 pp. with 147 ills. (76 col.). 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9783936681888 In English.
Publisher's description: This book examines the application of the principle of layering in architecture, its mechanics, possible application and meaning. Layering is widely used in the discussions of the 20th and 21st century architecture but rarely defined or examined. Layering bridges the tectonics of structure and skin, offers a system for the creation of different architectural spaces over time and functions as a design principle without hierarchy. Three types of layering are identified: a chronological sedimentation of planes materializing changes over time (temporal layering), the additive sequence of spaces (spatial layering), and the stratification of individual planes (material layering).
