Due date: August 2017. Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 169207. Publisher's description: An ideal design is site-specific, which is the only way architecture can create or connect with a specific sense of identity. This requires addressing the structural and local circumstances. The method handbook, developed at the Department of Dietmar Eberle, offers a playful way in which to systematically ascertain a complex framework and use it for your own design. The 9 x 9 method takes all relevant factors and their alternate interaction into consideration: location, structure, shell, program, and materiality, all which, in a matrix with various intersections, produce exactly 9 "fields of action" for the design. The individual "fields" are not only illustrated visually with meaningful and impressive pictures, but are also discussed in texts by leading specialists. For this book, the 9 x 9 method was completely re-worked and redesigned.
