Reciprocal Frame Architecture

Simple and beautifully illustrated introduction to the use of reciprocal frame structures in architecture

In structural terms reciprocal frame structures are 'three dimensional assemblies of mutually supporting beams'. But behind this definition lie some breathtakingly beautiful and complex structures at the heart of buildings both ancient and modern. This new book explores the principles of these apparently simple structures and demonstrates how they can be used in the context of a modern building.

Starting with historic designs by de Honnecourt, Da Vinci and Serlio, the book presents the wealth of possible RF morphologies, and investigates the geometrical, structural and practical design issues of reciprocal frames.

The case studies look at stunning examples of reciprocal frame architecture that range from low environmental impact buildings and self built examples in the UK and USA, to the fascinating and elegant structures of the Puppet Theatre in Seiwa, Tokyo's Spinning House, Sukiya -Yu house, The Toyoson Stonemason museum and the Life Sciences Laboratory - Torikabuto in Japan.

The book is designed to inform and inspire architects and structural engineers alike, and brings to life a structural system whose principles have been used for thousands of years.

* Simple introduction to the design principles of mutually supporting structures
* Explores the impact of structural choices on the aesthetic impact of a building
* Highly illustrated case studies from across the globe

Modern C++ Design: Generic Programming and Design Patterns Applied
Modern C++ Design: Generic Programming and Design Patterns Applied

Modern C++ Design is an important book. Fundamentally, it demonstrates 'generic patterns' or 'pattern templates' as a powerful new way of creating extensible designs in C++--a new way to combine templates and patterns that you may never have dreamt was possible, but is. If your work involves...

C# 3.0: The Complete Reference 3/E
We programmers are a demanding bunch, always looking for ways to improve the performance, efficiency, and portability of our programs. We also demand much from the tools we use, especially when it comes to programming languages.

There are many programming languages, but only a few are great. A great programming language must be powerful,

Wirelessness: Radical Empiricism in Network Cultures

Motion, to take a good example, is originally a turbid sensation, of which the native shape is perhaps best preserved in the phenomenon of vertigo. (James 1996a, 62)

Between 1999 and 2009, a “ turbid ” or disordered sensation of change was felt as wireless connections expanded and eroded the edges of the Internet...

Parallel Iterative Algorithms: From Sequential to Grid Computing
Parallel Iterative Algorithms: From Sequential to Grid Computing
Computer science is quite a young research area. However, it has already been subject to several major advance steps which, in general, have been closely linked to the technological progresses of the machine components. It can easily be assumed that the current evolution takes place at the level of the communication networks whose quality, either...
