Concrete In Australia : December 2011
Concrete in Australia Vol 37 No 4 57 Tom Kundig: Houses NGO, D. (Ed.) Princeton Architectural Press, New York, NY, 2006 e work of Seattle-based architect Tom Kundig has been called both raw and refined, as well as super-crafted and warm. Kundig s projects, especially his houses, uniquely combine these two seemingly disparate sets of characteristics to produce some of the most inventive structures found in the architecture world today. Tom Kundig: Houses presents five projects in depth, from their early conceptual sketches to their final lovingly wrought, intimate details. Kundig s houses reflect a sustained and active collaborative process between designer, craftsmen, and owners, resulting in houses that bring to life the architect s intentions, the materials used, and lines of unforgettable beauty. Tom Kundig: Houses 2 KUNDIG, T. Princeton Architectural Press, New York, NY, 2011 e newly released sequel to Houses (published in 2006) Houses 2, expands upon the first book in just about every way, with more projects (17), more photos and a larger format. Large colour photos beautifully capture Kundig s "refined and elegant, but at the same time tough, rough and matter-of-fact" architecture, as Finnish architect and writer Juhani Pallasmaa puts it in the book s introductory essay. Most of the projects are in Kundig s home state; the rest are found in California, Spain and Idaho. Jim Olson: Houses OLSON, J Monacelli Press, New York, NY, 2009 Seattle-based architect Jim Olson, the founding partner of Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects, is particularly known for his subtly elegant residences, from a glass farmhouse in eastern Oregon to a Balinese-inspired retreat in Hawaii, from a diminutive waterfront cabin for his own family to two grand art-filled residences on the shores of Lake Washington in Seattle. Modern in spirit, the luxurious houses are characterised by intangible qualities of light and space. A place in the sun: Innovative homes designed for our climate -- Australia & New Zealand HARRISON, S. Thames & Hudson, 2010 Living in Australia and New Zealand is now more than ever about adapting to our unique environment. From the sunny beaches of tropical Queensland to the terrace houses of inner- city living to rural retreats and snow-capped mountains on the South Island of New Zealand, A Place in the Sun takes you on a journey through over 40 homes of stylistic distinction and functional design all built in harmony with the sun. A short guide to embodied carbon in building structures: August 2011 INSTITUTION OF STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS London, 2011 is short guide is intended to provide structural engineers with practical advice on how they can contribute directly to reducing the embodied carbon/energy footprint of the projects they design. Resistance of concrete to chloride ingress: Testing and modelling TANG, L., NILSSON, L.-O., BASHEER, P.A.M. Spon, London, 2011 Chloride ingress in reinforced concrete induces corrosion and consequent spilling and structural weakness, and it occurs world-wide and imposes an enormous cost. Yet it can be resisted by using test methods and relevant models for service life prediction. Resistance of concrete to chloride ingress sets out current understanding of chloride transport mechanisms, test methods and prediction models. It describes basic mechanisms and theories, and classifies the commonly used parameters and their units which expressing chloride and its transport properties in concrete. Laboratory test methods and in-field applicable test methods, including precision results from inter-laboratory comparison tests, are then outlined. Guidelines for the practical use of test methods and models are given, including tests for in-situ applications, and test methods validated by the precision results are detailed. How to design concrete structures using Eurocode 2 BOND, A. J., HARRISON, T., BROOKER, O. et al. MPA -- The Concrete Centre, Revised edition, January 2011 is publication aims to make the transition to Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures as easy as possible. Chapters based on the successful series of How to guides, previously published in Structural Engineer include: Introduction to Eurocode 2, Getting Started, Flat Slabs and Deflection Calculations and previously un-published chapters on Retaining Walls, Detailing, BS 8500 for building structures. AUSTROADS 8th Bridge Conference: Sustainable bridges: the thread of society. Sydney, 31 Oct--5 Nov 2011, Proceedings e Austroads Bridge Conferences provide a forum for bridge managers and engineers to pursue the aims of identification of the world s best practice and to promulgate the adoption of new technologies, ideas and practices. e conference brings together representatives from Austroads member organisations, research organisations, private industry and local government to present latest information on bridge management and engineering within Australia and New Zealand.
