9780415676373: Architecture in Motion: The history and development of portable building

The idea that architecture can be portable is one that grabs the imagination of both designers and the people who use it, perhaps because it so often forecasts a dynamic and creative solution to the complex problems of our contemporary mobile society, while at the same time dealing with issues of practicality, economy and sustainability.

Architecture in Motion examines the development of portable, transportable, demountable and temporary architecture from prehistory to the present day. From familiar vernacular models such as the tent, mobile home and houseboat, to ambitious developments in military and construction engineering, all aspects of portable building are considered.

Building on his earlier works Portable Architecture and Houses in Motion, Robert Kronenburg compares traditional forms of building, current commercial products and the work of innovative designers, and examines key contemporary portable buildings to reveal surprising, exciting and imaginative examples. He explores the philosophical and technological issues raised by these experimental and futuristic prototypes.

By understanding the nature of transitory architecture, a new ecologically aware design strategy can be developed to prioritise buildings that 'tread lightly on the earth' and still convey the sense of identity and community necessary for an established responsible society. This book provides a unique insight into this pivotal field of design.

Descrizione libro Taylor & Francis, 2013. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. 19.68 x 25.4 cm. "Architecture in Motion explores the genre of portable, transportable, demountable and temporary architecture. Moving buildings are among the earliest artefacts created by man, and yet they have a persisting relevance that enables a Bedouin tent to existin the same world as a 90,000-ton aircraft carrier. The third edition of this definitive study examines the development of the moveable building from prehistory to the present day. From familiar vernacular models such as the tent, mobile home and houseboat, to developments in military and construction engineering, all aspects of portable architecture are considered. The impact of innovative technology on the creation of portable architecture and its influence on static and permanent building design is explored. The book makes comparisons between current, commercially available products and the work of innovative designers. It explores the philosophical and technological issues raised by contemporary, experimental and futuristic prototypes, and examines the suitability to purpose of portable building solutions in shelter after disaster situations. Key examples of contemporary portable buildings are examined to reveal the exciting, innovative. A greater understanding of the nature of transitory architecture could result in a new, ecologically aware design strategy that prioritises buildings that 'tread lightly on the earth' and still convey the sense of identity and community necessary for an established responsible society. This book offers readers a unique insight into this continuously important field of design"-- Our orders are sent from our warehouse locally or directly from our international distributors to allow us to offer you the best possible price and delivery time.
