An "anatomical" study of building systems integration with
guidelines for practical applications
Through a systems approach to buildings, Integrated Buildings:
The Systems Basis of Architecture details the practice of
integration to bridge the gap between the design intentions and
technical demands of building projects. Analytic methods are
introduced that illustrate the value, benefit, and application of
systems integration, as well as guidelines for selecting technical
systems in the conceptual, schematic, and design development stages
Landmark structures such as Eero Saarinen's John Deere
Headquarters, Renzo Piano's Kansai International Airport, Glenn
Murcutt's Magney House, and Richard Rogers's Lloyd's of London
headquarters are presented as part of an extensive collection of
case studies organized into seven categories:
Laboratories Offices Pavilions Green Architecture High Tech
Architecture Airport Terminals Residential Architecture
Advanced material is provided on methods of integration,
including an overview of integration topics, the systems basis of
architecture, and the integration potential of various building
systems. An expanded case study of Ibsen Nelsen's design for the
Pacific Museum of Flight is used to demonstrate case study methods
for tracing integration through any work of architecture.
Visually enhanced with more than 300 illustrations, diagrams,
and photographs, Integrated Buildings: The Systems Basis of
Architecture is a valuable reference guide for architecture and
civil engineering students, as well as architects, engineers, and
other professionals in the construction industry.
