Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Das Ornament gewinnt gegenwartig in der Architektur einen neuen Stellenwert. Parametrisches Entwerfens und digitale Bauteilproduktion verandern seine Rolle radikal. Denn die freien Formen des Ornaments sind nun nicht mehr das Gegenteil der konstruktiven Geometrie eines Bauwerks, sondern beide werden nach der gleichen Logik und mit denselben Werkzeugen entworfen und produziert. Die alte Opposition zwischen Baukorper und Ornament ist aufgehoben. Damit eroffnet sich eine Fulle von neuen Interaktionsmoglichkeiten zwischen Funktion und Dekor, Bau und Oberflache, Tragwerk und Hulle.

Das Buch ist systematisch gema den eingesetzten Technologien und den daraus entstehenden Typen von Ornamenten aufgebaut. In funf Gruppen werden die Fertigungsweisen und Anwendungsstrategien dekorieren und mustern, perforieren und schneiden, schichten und beschichten, formen und gieen, stapeln und eindecken anhand von insgesamt 40 internationalen Beispielen aktueller Anwendungen vorgestellt.

Zu der qualifizierten Sichtung und Einordnung der neuen technologischen Moglichkeiten durch den Autor kommen Erfahrungsberichte von Architekten mit besonderer Expertise auf dem Gebiet des avancierten Ornaments: Sam Jacob von Fashion Architecture Taste (FAT), London, Andreas Hild von Hild und K Architekten, Munchen, und Alejandro Zaera-Polo, Foreign Office Architects, London.

Synopsis:

Ornament is currently acquiring a new status in architecture. Parametric design and digital production of building components are radically altering its role. The free forms of ornament are no longer antithetical to the constructive geometry of a building; rather, both are designed and produced according to the same logic and using the same tools. The old opposition between structure and ornament has been eliminated. This opens up a wealth of new possibilities of interaction between function and decoration, volume and surface, load-bearing structure and building skin.

This book gives a systematically structured account of the technologies employed and the resulting types of ornament, along with the finishing methods and strategies of application. Decorating and patterning, perforating and cutting, layering and coating, forming and pouring, stacking and covering are presented using forty built examples of international contemporary architecture. The authora (TM)s highly qualified inspection and classification of the new technological possibilities are supplemented by reports on the experiences of architects with particular expertise in the area of advanced ornament: Sam Jacob of Fashion Architecture Taste (FAT), London; Andreas Hild of Hild und K Architekten, Munich; and Alejandro Zaera-Polo of Foreign Office Architects, London.
