Using real working drawings from a 50 year career, Ron Slade shows how drawing remains at the heart of the design process in the everyday working life of engineers and architects. The book explains simple techniques that can be learnt and used to enhance any professional’s natural ability. Using over 180 categorised examples it demonstrates that drawing remains the fastest, clearest and most effective means of design communication. Unlike many other books on drawing in the construction industry, this book is ‘engineer led’ and science oriented but effectively shows that there is a close affinity between the working methods of architects and engineers.

Sketching as Design Thinking

This book argues for the importance of sketching as a mode of thinking, and the relevance of sketching in the design process, design education, and design practice. Through a wide range of analysis and discussion, the book looks at the history of sketching as a resource throughout the design process and asks questions such as: where does sketching come from? When did sketching become something different to drawing and how did that happen? What does sketching look like in the present day? Alongside an in-depth case study of students, teachers, and practitioners, this book includes a fascinating range of interviews with designers from a wide variety of backgrounds, including fashion, user experience, and architecture. Sketching as Design Thinking explains how drawing and sketching remain a prominent aspect in our learning and creative process, and provides a rich resource for students of visual art and design.

Sustainability and the Design of Transport Interchanges

The interchange is a new form of transport building which integrates into a single whole various modes of public transport, putting the passenger first (rather than the infrastructure). This book presents design principles for transport interchanges and offers analysis of best practice in the UK and abroad. The author demonstrates how this complex new building type integrates with the city, on the one hand, and with different types of transport on the other. In this integration design in both plan and section are important, as is urban and landscape design. The idea of ‘interchange’ is increasingly relevant as town planners, engineers and architects address the question of sustainable development with its emphasis on energy efficiency, social cohesion, access for the elderly, and urban regeneration.

This new edition of Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering explores how to effectively develop creative collaborations among architects and engineers. The authors, an architect and an engineer, share insights gained from their experiences and research on fostering productive communication, engaging in interdisciplinary discussions, and establishing common design goals. Together, they share the tools, methods, and best practices deployed by prominent innovative architects and engineers to provide readers with the key elements for success in interdisciplinary design collaborations. The book offers engaging stories about prominent architect and engineer collaborations––such as those between SANAA and Sasaki and Partners, Adjaye Associates and Silman, Grafton Architects and AKT II, Studio Gang and Arup, Foster + Partners and Buro Happold, Steven Holl Architects and Guy Nordenson and Associates, and among the engineers and architects at SOM. In the second edition, the newly added case studies showcase extraordinary buildings across the globe at a range of scales and typologies, tracing the facets of high-quality collaborations. Through the examples of these remarkable synergies, readers gain insights into innovative design processes that address complex challenges in the built environment. The second edition of Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering is a terrific sourcebook for students, educators, and professionals interested in integrative design practice among the disciplines.

This second-expanded edition of Towards A New Engineering is almost double in volume compared to the first edition, with several new chapters, new material and is more graphically oriented in order to guide readers more smoothly throughout the text. It is a collection of intimate reflections on structural engineering, its present and future. A testimony on many issues that ‘bothered’ the author during his years of designing structures. A critique and praise of built structures, structural design strategies, codes, the educational system, digital tools and much more. It’s a professional memoir dedicated to the unsung heroes of structural engineering. Not the unknown ones but the unrecognized ones. It’s an album of their thoughts and designs. This book is a rare possibility for structural engineers to consider the meaning of their profession, to meditate about it and its relation to, or distinction from, the practice of architecture. This is a collection of thoughts but not conclusions and theories. The book is recommended for all structural and architectural engineers, as well as for students of engineering and architecture, especially those who have chosen structural engineering as their lifelong profession. It is an eye-opening book that will provide a clearer, more realistic perspective while also offering an idea of where engineers will be in the future and how they should adapt to the time that comes.
