The efficient usage, investigation, and promotion of new methods, tools, and technologies within the field of architecture, particularly in urban planning and design, is becoming more critical as innovation holds the key to cities becoming smarter and ultimately more sustainable. In response to this need, strategies that can potentially yield more realistic results are continually being sought. The Handbook of Research on Digital Research Methods and Architectural Tools in Urban Planning and Design is a critical reference source that comprehensively covers the concepts and processes of more than 20 new methods in both planning and design in the field of architecture and aims to explain the ways for researchers to apply these methods in their works. Pairing innovative approaches alongside traditional research methods, the physical dimensions of traditional and new cities are addressed in addition to the non-physical aspects and applied models that are currently under development in new settlements such as sustainable cities, smart cities, creative cities, and intercultural cities. Featuring a wide range of topics such as built environment, urban morphology, and city information modeling, this book is essential for researchers, academicians, professionals, technology developers, architects, engineers, and policymakers.

Residential Design Using Autodesk Revit 2016 is designed for the architectural student new to Autodesk Revit 2016. This text takes a project based approach to learning Autodesk Revit’s architectural tools in which the student develops a single family residence all the way to photo-realistic renderings like the one on the cover. Each book comes with a disc containing numerous video presentations in which the author demonstrates and explains the many architectural tools and techniques used in Autodesk Revit 2016. The lessons begin with a basic introduction to Autodesk Revit 2016. The first four chapters are intended to get the reader familiar with the user interface and many of the common menus and tools. Throughout the rest of the book a residential building is created and many of Autodesk Revit’s tools and features are covered in greater detail. Using step-by-step tutorial lessons, the residential project is followed through to create elevations, sections, floor plans, renderings, construction sets, etc. About the Videos The videos contained on the included disc make it easy to see the menu selections and will make learning Autodesk Revit straightforward and simple. At the start of each chapter the reader is prompted to watch a video that previews the topics that will be covered in the chapter. This allows the reader to be familiar with the menu selections and techniques before they begin the tutorial.
