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.

The completely updated and expanded edition of this classic text reviews all aspects of planning and construction of academic and research library buildings. Planning a new building that fulfills the needs and expectations of users and staff is a true challenge. New technology has put an increasing burden on library planners to develop a flexible building to accommodate the future library. However, even in the present academic and research library, buildings need to serve dual purposeshouse the collection, support technology, and provide study and research space for users. While these uses are not mutually exclusive, they do require careful planning. The planning process is complicated by the need to budget and control expenses while ensuring that space is available for every library need now and in the foreseeable future. The job of planning and designing a library building often falls on the shoulders of those who have little experience in such a huge undertaking. They are also usually charged with multiple tasks, including budgeting, fundraising, hiring architects and consultants, and then implementing and coordinating the entire process. Because it is so comprehensive, Planning Academic and Research Library Buildings can be used by librarians, planners, architects, designers, consultants, and academic administrators as a complete planning tool. It addresses every planning aspect from the moment the idea of a new building is first conceived until the grand opening. Arranged in the same chronological order as the building planning process, the book explains each step thoroughly and clearly. The book details: * the planning process; * alternatives to a new building; * the building program; * budgeting and expense control; * building additions and renovation; * planning and citing; * design development; * contract documents; and * bidding, legal, and business concerns and construction. The authors explain which questions need to be answered first in the planning process. In addition, the key factors that must be considered when planning a new building are thoroughly explained, such as: * aesthetic and functional concerns; * security; * interior design; * environmental control; * adaptability and support of technology; * housing the collection; and * accommodations for reading. Specific and select library building examples are used to illustrate points and clarify solutions to problems. Appendixes include program examples, formulas and tables, the ALA Building Blocks guideline, and environmental conditions for book preservation. A comprehensive bibliography provides both in print and online resources on building planning. A glossary is included to clarify terms to the variety of users of this book. - Publisher.

From trade fair stands to museum concepts, the successful transfer of information to a wide public audience relies on effective staging and appropriate architectural design. While museum exhibitions focus on the art of communicating content, with commercial aspects tending to play a more subordinate role, the goal of trade fair stands and showrooms is to convey a brand image. And at least since large companies like BMW and Mercedes began introducing commercialized museum concepts designed to stage their brands, the phenomenon has come full circle. Not infrequently, planners today must not only accomplish the demanding task of designing an exhibition; they must also meet full service demands, from briefings and CI design to realization. How to do this successfully is the subject of short articles by authors from the relevant fields. With extensively documented project examples organized by presentation or exhibition type, these valuable technical articles offer a detailed roadmap to practical success.
