Textbooks

  1. 5 Minutes with Kate Fletcher

    "I'm not sure I can ever remember not being engaged with fashion nor sustainability. Growing up in a family of community activists in inner city Liverpool in the bleak years of Margaret Thatcher’s Britain, it was impossible to avoid direct experience of the necessity of change. As was (for me at any rate), the practice of making clothes."

  2. Simon Unwin Chats with Routledge about the 4th Edition of Analysing Architecture

    "Traditional Japanese creativity has the concept of 'kaizen' or 'endless improvement', which recognises that although perfection might always be out of reach, things can be made better, gradually, bit by bit."

  2. Talking with Harriet Harriss and Lynnette Widder about Architecture Live Projects

    "Live Projects are really significant at a time when the professional stature of architects is so diversified, and the profession’s commitment to a greater good so diffuse. Live Projects give every architect-to-be the chance to experience the significance that an individual’s work can have."

  1. Routledge Chats with Kjell Anderson about Design Energy Simulation for Architects

    "While a handful of architecture firms have measured the performance of their designs and occupied buildings in the past, this is a rapidly growing trend.  Firms are simulating during design, asking for earlier engagement of energy analysts, and going back to check on completed buildings.  Performance, in this case, can refer to overall energy use, thermal comfort, daylight levels, occupant satisfaction, usage patterns, etc.  Their simulation results from early and late design are being compared against post-occupancy results, leading to a more informed design process."

  2. Chatting with Andrew Pressman about Designing Relationships

    "Learning to collaborate effectively and reaping the resulting benefits could not be more timely. The emergence of integrated project delivery (IPD) and building information modeling (BIM) together with the complexity of projects and the speed with which they must be completed make an in-depth understanding of collaboration a current, critical issue in architectural practice. Designing Relationships is for leaders who want to grow their collaborative leadership skills and elicit the best work from partners and collaborators. And it is for team members who seek insights to better job performance and better project outcomes."
