How do you actually build a popular theatre? It should be as simple as necessary to prevent any threshold fears among the public, and as chic as possible because at the theatre the spotlight is cast not only on the stage. This is the answer given by the architecture firm Lederer, Ragnarsdóttir, Oei (Stuttgart) and the construction firm Resch (Bad Saulgau). Their Münchner Volkstheater presents itself as a powerfully poetic brick building, which gives the quarter an important cultural impulse in a dialogue with the old buildings of the former Munich stockyard.LRO Lederer, Ragnarsdóttir, Oei Architekten was founded in 1979 and currently has around 50 employees. Jürgen Tietz is a freelance architecture critic and publicist.Search inside on ISSUU.com

"Idea (sketch), concept (presentation drawing), execution (photograph)": structured by these three aspects, Axel Müller Schöll presents in his book "House building and the Like" a variety of different projects that have to do with an interior or structural architect’s classical portfolio in varying degrees. They are, however, all developed on the basis of the classical toolkit that is part of every architect’s training and then of their professional work. It is still the idea that makes all the difference and that serves as a basis for a draft in the following step.

Das Motto von Walter Gropius zur ersten Bauhaus- Ausstellung 1923 im Haus Am Horn in Weimar lautete: „Kunst und Technik – eine neue Einheit“. Die Integration beider Felder fand in den 1920er-Jahren am Weimarer Bauhaus jedoch nicht nur enthusiastische Anhänger, sondern auch leidenschaftliche Gegner – eine Kontroverse, die bis in die heutige Zeit reicht. Der Sammelband reflektiert Grundfragen der Weimarer Zeit sowie darauf aufbauende Entwicklungen seit den 1950er-Jahren – etwa an der HfG Ulm – und macht die Diskurse für die Herausforderungen des digitalen Zeitalters fruchtbar.

Hybrid systems not only revolutionise our mobility but also provide a fresh breath of air in retailing with the layering of various functions. Large-format building structures such as department stores and shopping centres are revitalised in line with climate optimisation and supplemented with small-scale mixed uses. Shared spaces for young start-ups and established brands offer greater variety and the opportunity to liven up too extensive spaces with new experiences and inspirations. Retail sharing has developed into an effective recipe against decreasing frequenting.
The fifth edition of “Retail Design International” pursues the phenomenon of hybrid spaces between new work, leisure and retail worlds. It presents collaborative concepts from the European, Asian and Pacific regions that reveal opportunities for the transformation from a point of sale to a point of experience.

Computational design is a post-disciplinary pursuit that operates at the intersection of science, engineering, architecture, and design. What new strategies, tools, methods, and workflows for conceptualising, generating and producing the built environment do and can computational designers use? Do new opportunities to enhance design agency and realise more sustainable and resilient built environment design outcomes exist when thinking through technology? How can the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry overcome technical, economic, social, cultural, and regulatory barriers to implement new systems and processes?"Computational Design – From Promise to Practice" argues that to realise the full potential of computational design necessitates an approach that brings theory and research inquiry into closer dialogue with the realities and conditions of the design, delivery, and production of the built and urban environment as well as its lived experiences. This book documents an action-research approach that underpins the Computational Design Education and Research program at the University of New South Wales, Australia and that simultaneously combines theory and practice, researchers and industry practioners, and action and reflection. The innovative range of theoretical positions and projects presented here demonstrate how a synergistic approach to transforming real-world industry challenges into academic research inquiries and learning opportunities can in turn positively transform the AEC industry and 21st century cities.The editors:Dr Nicole Gardner is a Lecturer in the Bachelor of Computational Design, in the Faculty of the Built Environment, University of New South Wales, Sydney.

Just a few years ago customers at the point of sale would have been turned away politely but firmly if they had brought their coffee to go or even something edible with them. Now the situation has completely changed: a variety of forms of gastronomy have established themselves as communicative gathering places and enjoyable anchor points in retail design.

How art can make a contribution to the "healing environment" is shown by the Robert Bosch Hospital in Stuttgart with a Germany-wide unique and pioneering art concept. Whether it is seriously ill patients in the intensive care unit, visitors in the public corridors or employees in sterile functional areas: each is stimulated in their own way by the total of 48 artistic interventions.
The description of the many approaches and possible effects of the art projects realised at the Robert Bosch Hospital during the period 1998–2018 is supplemented by specialist contributions from the fields of art, design and corporate philosophy. They open the topic of an interdisciplinary approach and offer a view towards the future potential of healing art in an international context.

architekturbild, the European Architectural Photography Prize, has been awarded on a two-yearly basis since 1995. Since 2003, the prize has been awarded by architekturbild e.V., a non-profit organisation and since 2008 in cooperation with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt, and since 2016 with the Bundesstiftung Baukultur, Potsdam/Berlin. The theme for 2019 is "Joyful Architecture". We rarely think of architecture as comforting, fun and playful. The book therefore presents examples of architecture that playfully and positively impact the built environment and its inhabitants. These examples can be understated or clichéd, autonomous or in dialogue with their surroundings, hidden or obvious.

We already have the ability to create buildings that are both sustainable and breathtakingly beautiful today – if only we can summon the will do to so. Designed by Werner Sobek with Dirk E. Hebel and Felix Heisel, the "Urban Mining & Recycling" Experimental Unit (UMAR) uses the example of serially manufactured housing to demonstrate the first fully comprehensive application of recyclable materials. All of the elements required to construct the Unit had to be 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable. In order to achieve this goal, every single detail, every product and every structure involved in the project was scrutinised with a critical eye.
Prof. Werner Sobek is the founder of an international group of engineering and design consultancies, offering premium consultancy services for architecture, structures, façades and sustainability. By means of award-winning experimental buildings such as R128, H16, F87, B10 and (most recently) UMAR he studies how new materials, structures and technologies can bring about a radical change of our built environment.

European Architectural Photography Prize 2017 architekturbild, the European Architectural Photography Prize, has been awarded on a two-yearly basis since 1995. This time the subject is "Borders".Whether in the sense of opening or closing, of including or excluding or as definitions of geographical or (urban) spatial areas, borders are physically present and clearly recognizable or subtly noticeable, but always perceived as either protecting or deterring. In the context of the European Architectural Potography Prize 2017 we by no means focus on the negative interpretations of this term but rather on the photographic-aristic involvment with our built environment.
