MODERN CONSTRUCTION CASE STUDIES: EMERGING INNOVATION IN BUILDING TECHNIQUES. Andrew Watts. Birkhauser-Verlag fur Architektur, Basel, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Walter de Gruyter, GmbH, Berlin. 224 pp. with 639 ills. (551 col.). 31 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783035610987 In English.
Publisher's description: In the context of tight budgets, complex geometries, high energy effciency, and flexible user functions mean that the requirements for technical details, and their execution in modern buildings, are very exacting. As an ideal supplement to the Modern Construction Handbook, Modern Construction Case Studies presents successfully executed innovative avant-garde projects completed over the last five years -- all designed by internationally recognized architectural practices such as Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Gensler, Lab Architecture Studio, RMJM Architecture, and others. The case studies are analyzed in a structured way under technical criteria, using text, photographs, 3D illustrations, and diagrams. They provide inspiration for new approaches that also work for smaller-scale projects.
