Mejia Hernandez, J.A. (author)
This study of the historiography of architecture and the built environment develops the thesis that well-known modernist histories of architecture, such as those written by Reyner Banham, remain unable to appraise the many nuances and complexities that characterize modern architecture. It is argued here that, among other reasons, they are unable...

The production of precast, concrete elements with complex, double-curved geometry is expensive due to the high costcosts of the necessary moulds and the limited possibilities for mould reuse. Currently, CNC-milled foam moulds are the solution applied mostly in projects, offering good aesthetic performance, but also resulting in waste of material...

Recent deregulation of laws on hospital real estate in the Netherlands implies that healthcare institutions have more opportunities to make independent accommodation choices, but at the same time have themselves become responsible for the risks associated with the investment. In addition, accommodation costs have become an integral part of the...

This dissertation examines architectural operations developed from the 1950s through the 1980s that challenged modernity’s “anxiety of contamination” and that have negotiated the boundaries between the realm of the individual and the social, the expert and the mass men, the local and the universal, modernity and the vernacular. The central...

In a short essay dealing with the repetitive homogeneity of the Manhattan’s office layouts, Rem Koolhaas defined the term Typical Plan as one of the purest American architectural archetypes. A plan stripped of all its qualities and reduced to a calculated relation between discreet standardised elements: an empty surface able to host whatever...

Reconfigurable Architectures (RA) have been gaining popularity rapidly in the last decade for two reasons. First, processor clock frequencies reached threshold values past which power dissipation becomes a very difficult problem to solve. As a consequence, alternatives were sought to keep improving the system performance. Second, because Field...

Concrete like materials were already applied during the Roman Empire. After the decline of the Roman Empire, a wide scale application of concrete only reappeared in the 19th century. Here lies also the origin of modern (reinforced) concrete. Since then, both concrete application and composition have significantly changed. Today, concrete from...

Alvarez Cabrera, A.A. (author)
Design activities, including control design, are becoming increasingly difficult due to a corresponding increase in product and product development complexity. Model-based (or driven) engineering, development and design have become common concepts related to modern complex product development practices. However, it is argued here that currently...

Architectural design is a complex process as a result of two prominent characteristics of choice making: 1) multiple designs can fit into one intended purpose, which raises the question: how to choose the design that fits best, and 2) a multitude of decision makers have an interest in the design process, which is the problem of group choice...

Railway and city have coexisted for more then 150 years. The realization of railroads in the 19th century can be seen as an important contribution to the development of the city. But during the making of railroads there was too little consideration for the overall picture of the city. The result is that today the railway is entangled with the...

On hearing the term "Soviet modernism", images of Moscow and Leningrad spring to mind. These two cities may compete with each other for the title of the Russian modernist paradigm. Meanwhile little attention has been paid to the developments in more remote areas of Russia. Apparently, the Ural region played a remarkable role in the history of...
