Masterplanning the adaptive city, Tom Verebes, Rocker Lange Architects, Christian J. Lange, Ingeborg Rocker

Abstract of the book:
“Computational design has become widely accepted into mainstream architecture, but this is the first book to advocate applying it to create adaptable masterplans for rapid urban growth, urban heterogeneity, through computational urbanism. Practitioners and researchers here discuss ideas from the fields of architecture, urbanism, the natural sciences, computer science, economics, and mathematics to find solutions for managing urban change in Asia and developing countries throughout the world. Divided into four parts (historical and theoretical background, our current situation, methodologies, and prototypical practices), the book includes a series of essays, interviews, built case studies, and original research to accompany chapters written by editor Tom Verebes to give you the most comprehensive overview of this approach.”

Essays by Marina Lathouri, Jorge Fiori, Jonathan Solomon, Patrik Schumacher, Peter Trummer, and David Jason Gerber.

Interviews with Dana Cuff, Xu Wei Guo, Matthew Prior, Tom Barker, Su Yunsheng, and Brett Steele.

Built case studies by Zaha Hadid Architects, James Corner Field Operations, XWG Studio, MAD, OCEAN Consultancy Network, Plasma Studio, Groundlab, Peter Trummer, Serie Architects, dotA, and Rocker-Lange Architects.

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

“Architecture in Formation is the first digital architecture manual that bridges the gap between theory and practice, giving you a vital resource for navigating the digital future. Sixteen essays from practitioners, historians, and theorists look at the many ways information technology is being used to conceive and assess architecture to present to you a well-rounded discussion of the field. Twenty-nine projects illustrate real-world examples of the digital made concrete, so that you can see how you might do it too.”
