2 Facades - John Pearson
Auteur : John Pearson
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
First published in 1978 Façades details the lives of three of the twentieth century's most intriguing literary figures: Edith, Osbert and Sacheverell Sitwell. Aristocrats emanating from a privileged but loveless youth, they moulded the scene of the English avant-garde throughout the 1920s and in Cyril Connolly's words, 'had they not been there a whole area of life would have been missing.' Picking up protégés and starting feuds with equal alacrity they were never far from controversy and were often slighted for being better known for the façades which they put up around their work rather than their artistic out-put in itself. Whether these façades were set up to hide their art or their deeply conflicted personal lives is one of the most compelling problems brought up by Pearson. With as much attention paid to both the private and public aspects of their lives, this b

3 Façade - Zahra Owens
Auteur : Zahra Owens
Genre : Contemporain
Jonas Hunter vend son corps auprès d’une clientèle restreinte et exclusive principalement composée d’hommes, et ceux-ci paient très cher pour obtenir toute son attention. La discrétion est une seconde nature chez lui ; il peut aussi bien jouer à la perfection le rôle désiré par son client que disparaître dans une foule sans laisser de trace.

Contre toute attente, il se laisse convaincre d’accepter un nouveau client qui représente tout ce qu’il déteste chez la gent masculine : un bad-boy efféminé et colérique en perpétuelle quête d’attention de la haute couture parisienne nommé Nicky Bryant. Ses défilés sont outranciers et font toujours la une des journaux, et ses apparitions ne cessent de faire tourner les têtes. Mais Jonas apprend très vite que « Nicky » n’est lui aussi qu’une façade méticuleusement entretenue.

5 Integral Facade Construction - Tillmann Klein
Auteur : Tillmann Klein
Genre : Art et architecture
Integral Facade Construction focuses on the future development of the curtain wall. While the requirements on facades have slowly increased over the last decades, the curtain wall has evolved from craftsmanship oriented constructions to highly developed facade systems. But its constructional principle is still the same. Simplified, it can be described as a two-dimensional stick system with infill. With the latest requirements of almost energy neutral buildings, faster building processes and increasing technicalisation of the building envelope this constructional principle is reaching its limits. The curtain wall system has reached a state of maturity; and it needs a new approach to guaranty that this successful product will meet the challenges of the future.

For the forgotten Corretti - is one night enough?

Jackson Scott wakes from nightmares to the echo of gunfire. So when he stirs from a flashback and finds himself not in the cockpit of a fighter jet but at a party, pressed up against the soft, womanly figure of Lia Corretti he rages against the sweet pity in her eyes.

The forgotten Corretti, Lia is desperate to love and be loved. The hot heat of Jackson as he trapped her to him is something the innocent Sicilian girl has never experienced. Perhaps one night would be enough to sate the fire he’s lit inside her. Or will it just add fuel to the flames?

19 Designing Kinetics for Architectural Facades - Jules Moloney
Auteur : Jules Moloney
Genre : Art et architecture
Architectural facades now have the potential to be literally kinetic, through automated sunscreens and a range of animated surfaces. This book explores the aesthetic potential of these new types of moving facades.

Critique of theory and practice in architecture is combined here with ideas from kinetic art of the 1960’s. From this background the basic principles of kinetics are defined and are used to generate experimental computer animations. By classifying the animations, a theory of kinetic form called ‘state change’ is developed. This design research provides a unique and timely resource for those interested in the capacity of kinetics to enliven the public face of architecture.

20 Baltic Facades - Aldis Purs
Auteur : Aldis Purs
Genre : Histoire
Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania are often grouped together as the Baltic States, but these three Eastern European countries, tied together historically, are quite different. Although each is struggling to find its place within Europe and fighting to preserve its own identity, the idea of the Baltic States is a façade. In this book, Aldis Purs dispels the myth of a single, coherent Baltic identity, presenting a radical new view of the region.

Baltic Façades illuminates the uniqueness of these three countries and locates them within the larger context of European history, also revealing the similarities they share with the rest of the continent. He also examines the anxiety the people of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania feel about their own identities and how others see them. Giving equal weight to developments in politics, economics, and social and cultural trends, he pla

24 Les Façades anciennes à Dunkerque - Guy Blazy
Auteur : Guy Blazy
Genre : Europe
Malgré les nombreuses destructions qu’elle a subies au cours des guerres qui l’ont ravagée (notamment en juin 1940 où elle fut détruite à 90 %), la cité de Jean Bart conserve encore quelques constructions de la fin du XVIIe siècle et du XVIIIe siècle, vestiges ignorés d’un grand nombre de Dunkerquois… Guy Blazy, ancien conservateur du Musée de Dunkerque, nous invite à la découverte de ce « Dunkerque ancien », né du rachat de la ville aux Anglais en 1662. L’essor économique qui suit l’annexion par la France provoque un véritable « boum » démographique : des 5 000 âmes qu’elle compte en 1662, la ville passe à 11 170 habitants en 1695 puis à 13 700 en 1 736.

25 International Façades - CROFT - Marcel Bilow, TU Delft Faculty of Architecture
Auteur : Marcel Bilow, TU Delft Faculty of Architecture
Genre : Art et architecture
"International Façades - CROFT" links the fields of architecture, building services and building physics. It aims at an international diversity in façade design to reduce energy consumption in building design.
Current architectural planning practices, such as the International Style, perceive the climate often as a problem, rather than an opportunity to work with it.
This doctoral thesis presents a “Façade Expert Tool” (FET) that analyses the climate and the combination of the façade and building services. The goal of FET is to easily analyse the climate of a particular location and to then limit the possible combination of façade and building services components to a practical level.
Through FET Marcel Bilow has developed “Climate Responsive Optimised Façade Technologies” (CROFT).
CROFT demonstrates the potential for sustainable building operation t

28 German Façade Design - Randall Ott
Auteur : Randall Ott
Genre : Art et architecture
German architecture prior to the modern period has received less systemic, analytical study than that of Italy, France, and Britain. Scholarly discussion of broad traditions or continuities within Germanic or Central European façade design is even sparser. Baroque era studies of the region mostly devote themselves to isolated architects, monuments, or movements. Modernism's advent decisively changed this: Germanic architecture enjoyed sudden ascendancy. Yet, even so, study specifically of that region's façades still lagged – nothing compares to the dozens of treatments of Le Corbusier's façade systems, for example, and how these juxtapose with French neoclassical or Italian Renaissance methods. Given the paucity of multi-period studies, one can be forgiven for believing Germany's effervescence of radical, modern works seems unprecedented. This book takes up these multiple quand

30 Evolutionary Optimisation of Façade Design - Giovanni Zemella & Andrea Faraguna
Auteur : Giovanni Zemella & Andrea Faraguna
Genre : Ressources pour la production d'énergie
Optimization techniques offer immense potential for the improvement of performance-driven design, since they allow the adoption of an holistic approach. This can lead to great advantages: optimal design solutions can be properly identified only if all criteria are considered at the same time, rather than separately. There are two barriers which obstruct optimization from being applied to building design: a technological barrier (applying the algorithms is not easy and can be quite time-consuming) and a cultural one (architects and engineers are required to change their perspectives as the design process has to be handled in a new way). This book explores these barriers from the perspective of both engineers and architects, and proposes a change in the attitudes of these two “actors”: an engineer and an architect develop a dialog which helps them understand each other’s perspective;

36 Facade Refurbishment Toolbox. - Thaleia Konstantinou
Auteur : Thaleia Konstantinou
Genre : Art et architecture
The starting point of the research is the need to refurbish existing residential building stock, in order to reduce its energy demand, which accounts for over one fourth of the energy consumption in the European Union. Refurbishment is a necessary step to reach the ambitious energy and decarbonisation targets for 2020 and 2050 that require an eventual reduction up to 90% in CO2 emissions. In this context, the rate and depth of refurbishment need to grow. The number of building to be renovated every year should increase, while the energy savings in renovated buildings should be over 60% reduction to current energy demand. To achieve that, not only is it necessary to find politics and incentives, but also to enable the building industry to design and construct effective refurbishment strategies. This research focuses on refurbishment of the building envelope, as it is very influential with

49 The Kubrick Facade - Jason Sperb
Auteur : Jason Sperb
Genre : Film
Many of Stanley Kubrick's films are often interpreted as cold and ambiguous. Whether viewing Barry Lyndon, 2001, The Shining, or Eyes Wide Shut, there is a sense in which these films resist their own audiences, creating a distance from them. Though many note the coldness of Kubrick's films, a smaller number attempt to explore exactly how his body of work elicits this particular reaction. Fewer still attempt to articulate what it might mean to "feel" Stanley Kubrick's films. In The Kubrick Facade, Jason Sperb examines the narrative ambiguity of the director's films—from the voice-over narration in early works, including the once forgotten Fear and Desire—to the blank faces of characters in his later ones. In doing so, Sperb shows how both devices struggle in vain to make sense of the chaos and sterility of the cinematic surface.
