This ebook proposes a process constitution in architectural layout that conceptualises a systemic point in structure and building that lies among normal building recommendations and particular architectural effects. so as to make this kind of process constitution operational, the elaboration of a version seeks at the one hand to analytically seize and nevertheless to give the opportunity to actively paintings with procedure buildings as a part of architectural layout. Kasper Sanchez Vibaek's ambition is to bridge an obvious and lengthening hole among architectural ideation and how those rules are dropped at existence as actual actual manifestations of our outfitted atmosphere.

In line with the so-called structures sciences the booklet rejects the everyday clinical view that the measure of element ‘automatically’ complements knowing and explanative energy of advanced phenomena. It establishes the belief of a structures view on structures and architectural layout that by using versatile constituent components enables dialogue and choice making approximately how architectural wholes are accurately prepare as assemblages of what the present and destiny development is able to producing.

Based on numerous years of precise examine into the architectural effects of development while uncovered to industrialised construction strategies and structures, Architectural method Structures represents a brand new strategy to examine what's already there and turns out to be useful for all these drawn to the methods of architectural construction and realisation in particular connected to time, position and cultural context.

Example text

21 Although fairly elaborate, by being local these systems often cause considerable translation work when other parties get involved and produces company internal suboptimisation rather than real benefits for the construction process and the architectural result as a whole. None of the existing classification systems seems to have root in how architecture is conceived – or at least have taken into consideration this (necessary) aspect. They do not facilitate the translation from architectural concept to ‘project production’.

The architectural idea unambiguously led to the transformation of specific materials by specific techniques into specific results. Today this coherence is no longer present and this has from the 1950s onwards led to the emergence of different classification systems as attempts to make it possible to specify building data as processes and elements in a precise way thus enabling consistent communication among different stakeholders. These systems, however, have emerged rather from a contractor perspective than from an architectural context and thus largely lacks correspondence with how the buildings are conceived and designed in the first place.

Four aspects are defined: a product aspect (what an object consists of), a form aspect (what it looks like), a functional aspect (how it is used) and a location aspect (how it is integrated/installed). 08 Seam/joint in window section inserted into wall system The different levels of the coding make it possible to describe elements that are integrated – or nested – into other larger and more complex elements and facilitate different ‘zooms’ of complexity in focus. In a following chapter on general systems theory this issue of nested system integration and levelled complexity will be further explored.
