GA Houses Project (2010)

Image of the cover of GA Houses Project 2009

"The intention of The Elementals—a series of unique eco-tourism cabins sited throughout California—is to critique the prevailing resource-based ecological perspectives that presume to be able to afford a continuation of the contemporary way of living within the world through a vague appeal to resource conservation practices and new technologies. Rather, The Elementals have been designed to create architectural experiences that counteract this prevailing conceptual framework in order to change the way that individuals understand their relationship to the larger ecosystem. They experientially implicate the individual as an active and inevitable consumer of the natural environment by creating inhabitable scenarios in which the primary desire of the occupant—namely, the view of the surrounding landscape—is transformed into a limited resource that is “consumed” by the very act of occupation. Individuals are therefore provided with a rare opportunity to inhabit a no-win scenario—one which most closely resembles the contemporary world, and within which the only positive way forward is a radical paradigm shift in the way that humans perceive their relationship to the natural world. " 

Professor and architect Doug Jackson's project is featured in GA Houses Project 2010, issue 115. This book can be purchased from Abe Books.

Polemical Drawings (2009)

Image of the cover of the 2006-2007 Faculty Scholarship publication

"Polemical Drawings gives legitimacy to architect and professor John Lange’s quest in setting in place a vision for an architecture of the future; one that finds resonance in the 18th century visionary architects who believed that drawing and the act of drawing, was Architecture in its own right.

The experiences and experiments of Boullee, Ledoux, and Piranesi established Architecture as a three-dimensional manifestation of a social structure; one that was coined Architecture Parlante.

John Lange's work is firmly anchored in this tradition and while he has devoted his life as a teacher, an academician, theoretician, and educator, this book partakes in his search for an authentic plastic expression of ideas through structure and space. The work is explicitly recorded in the form of over-scaled drawings."

Professor John Lange's book is part of the Architectural Environmental Design Press and can be purchased from Lulu Marketplace for $35.90 (152 pages, full-cover, paperback)

The Emergence of Building Science;
Historical Roots, Concepts, and Application (2007)

Image of the cover of the 2006-2007 Faculty Scholarship publication

"The design of buildings and the broader field of environmental design are often described as an art and a science. Design is an art because of both the complexity of the problem solving and decision making process involved and the innate desire of the designer to produce a solution that is unique and at the same time pleasing to our human senses. In the first instance, the complexity of the design process itself is not necessarily due to the complexity of any single issue or facts that must be considered, although some of these certainly demand in-depth subject matter knowledge, but rather the many interrelationships among those factors."

Written by Professor emeritus and architect Jens Pohl.

Shrinking Cities: Volume 1 (2006)

Image of the cover of the 2006-2007 Faculty Scholarship publication

"From Great Britain, Belgium, Finland and Italy to Russia, Kazakhstan and China, cities are shrinking--while urban-planning debates focus on the growth of the megalopolis, many of the world's existing population centers are watching their citizens walk away. Between globalization, deindustrialization, suburbanization, the transition to post-Socialism, high unemployment and, in some cases, wider national population losses, the phenomenon is growing. Shrinking Cities Volume 1: International Research, a publication of the Germany-based Shrinking Cities initiative, examines this phenomenon's causes and dynamics on an international level for the first time, exploring examples including Manchester and Liverpool, Detroit, Russia's Ivanovo, and Germany's Halle and Leipzig."

With Emphasis on Lunar Base and Habitat Studies (2004)

Image of the cover of the 2006-2007 Faculty Scholarship publication

"The curriculum for aerospace architecture is for a year-long study for fifh0year undergraduate students of architecture ore masters of architecture. It is proposed as one option for students to choose as their capstone experience. Aerospace architecture is a topic within which graduating students can develop and enhance their architectural skills. The field has highly technical aspects that will develop in students a capacity to design in a highly regulated environment. Students will practice the rigors necessary to apply codes, specifications, and technological innovations to terrestrial architecture as well as to aerospace environments. The precision required in the discipline of designing for space will strengthen the abilities of architecture students to design to the less stringent requirements of "ordinary" architecture."

The Universal Traveler: a Soft-Systems guide to: creativity, problem-solving and the process of reaching goals (reprinted in 2003)

Image of the cover of the 2006-2007 Faculty Scholarship publication

"The goal of THE UNIVERSAL TRAVELER is to provide a simplifying format for problem-solving. We believe that all problems, no matter what size they may be, can benefit form the same logical and orderly procedures now employed in the highly specialized, computer assisted statistical, disciplines which address themselves to complex world problems. In principle our everyday and occasionally more important personal problems are no different than those larger issues. The process remains constant. It is only the methods which need to be changed, and then, often in appearance alone."

Stalking Detroit (2001)

Image of the cover of the 2006-2007 Faculty Scholarship publication

"Detroit is the most thoroughly modern city in the world. Built to service the single-minded imperatives of automobile production, Detroit has come to represent the temporary nature of urbanism in the context of increasingly mobile capital. In the first half of the 20th century Detroit served as an international model for industrial urbanism arranged to maximize profits from the investment of speculative capital. In the second half of the century, the city lost much of its population in the face of increasingly global capital markets and decentralized production methods. Stalking Detroit is an anthology of essays, photographs, and projects, each offering an intellectual purchase from the urban millieu of Detroit at the end of the century, and attempting to document the residue of its material history. Edited by Georgia Daskalakis, Charles Waldheim, and Jason Young."

Professor and architect Robert Arens' essay titled The Heidelberg Project is featured in this publication and can be purchased from Amazon.

Glossary of Architectural Terms, Concepts and Expressions (2000)

Image of the cover of the 2006-2007 Faculty Scholarship publication

"The language of architecture consists of materials, elements and products associated with building construction. Therefore by definition, architecture is a non-verbal language. Mastering this non-verbal language, learning its background, and establishing the context for its practice is a common task for learning and discipline. This is essential if one is to have a comprehensive and effective grasp of a discipline's associated activities, processes and its products."

Image of the cover of the 2006-2007 Faculty Scholarship publication

"Although there are few other books about pre-design programming, none of them is as open, accessible, and malleable as this one. Even so, this one is rigorous and thoughtful, a true "how-to" book, useful for doing your first pre-design program and many after that. What makes it particularly useful is the approach of issue-based programming where issues are concerns that demand a design response and thus become the units for analysis in the programming process."
