What is the process of forming rooms, which elements are used and how are room-shaping components defined? The fourth volume in the SCALE series, Furnishing | Zoning, deals with the relationships between building typology and building structure, and between spatial composition and interior design. The relationship between the briefing and the catalogue of requirements, and between shell construction and fit-out, is elucidated. Connections at walls, ceilings and floors are explained in detail and illustrated with case studies of selected projects. In addition, the authors demonstrate how a well-designed sequence of spaces can create added value by means, for example, of the choice of materials and the lighting scheme, or adaptability to accommodate new functions. Following the introductory chapter on the subject of space, the volume is divided into chapters on floors, walls, ceilings, and furniture and fixtures. Furnishing | Zoning examines the subject from different professional angles and thereby provides valuable support for practical interior design.

SCALE is conceived as a series of practical textbooks. Each volume addresses a different design theme or construction topic. The fifth volume, Arranging and Dividing, presents a detailed elucidation of the theme of interior construction from design to implementation."

"Document[s] the regulatory, administrative, and financial tools used by communities to provide safe pedestrian environments ... captures tools and strategies reported as effective in a range of contexts (e.g., geography, community size, weather, demographics, and regulatory requirements) and development conditions. Development conditions addressed include new and infill development, street reconstruction, and retrofitting."--Summary.

In this first volume in the SCALE series, "Open / Close', a simple yet significant part of any building - the "opening" - is illustrated in all its different aspects, from idea to implementation. As well as the different types of component-windows, doors, gates, loggias, filters-this volume deals with bu.ldinq structures. It is also concerned with the significance of the "opening in building design. Openings define the relationship between a bullding and the space outside it, helping to characterize a location. In this book, all of the elements that mediate between interior and exterior spaces are classified both in terms of construction and design. Each of them is described and dealt With indetail. All the internationally renowned projects used here as examples are both practical and generally applicable. The projects have not beenchosed for their homogeneous architectural language, but for the high quality of their architecture.

The building physics and comfort-relevant properties of gypsum drywall construction make it a particularly sustainable and versatile construction method. The book links the great architectural and sculptural potential of this building method with its construction requirements. Its focus is on the diversity of the system, its specific prerequisites, and its systematic implementation in design ideas. The space concept and elements in existing and new buildings are analyzed, and their implementation illustrated in detail. In addition, numerous examples of details and building components explain the effect of light, color, material, surface, and construction. Drawings at different scales illustrate the tectonic relationships in space.
