Detailing over 100 sound absorbing materials and finishes with case studies of innovative architectural and design applications. Sound Materials is a definitive resource for architects, designers, acousticians, engineers, students and creative professionals – the first publication of its kind to catalogue over 100 sound absorbing materials, detailing inspiring real-world applications. Project profiles include work from leading architects and designers such as OMA, Gehry Partners, Foster + Partners, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, and Barber & Osgerby. These projects showcase sound absorbing materials in a variety of interior design and architectural contexts and underscore some of the common acoustical and material challenges presented by specific applications, such as healthcare, education, performing arts, office, retail and industrial environments. Fundamental technical concepts are clearly presented to offer readers with an understanding of how materials absorb sound and how these materials are commonly used to reduce noise and reverberation, inform our sense of space, and improve communication in everyday environments. This book not only surveys an extensive range of materials past, present and emerging, but also highlights many exciting opportunities for future innovation and collaboration at the intersections of acoustical engineering, materials science, design and architecture.

A fascinating exploration of Max Lamb's experimentation with materials, craft, and technology One of the most exciting designers working today, Max Lamb (b. 1980) has received international acclaim for his innovative experiments with materials, craft, and technology. Drawn to the form of the chair and its relationship to the human body, Lamb has explored many different inventive outcomes in his ever-evolving Exercises in Seating project. This book investigates over a decade of creative practice with a focus on his interest in seating--from stone thrones to wood chairs and enameled-steel stools. In Lamb's own words, "A seat is very simple in function, but very complex in the many different characters, forms, and ideas it can express." Both retrospective and forward looking, this volume--created in collaboration with the artist--is the most thorough investigation of Lamb's work to date and features an exclusive interview with noted artist Ryan Gander in which the designer discusses his creative processes and goals.

Ethics for the City

A preeminent thinker redefines the meaning of city life and charts a way forward Building and Dwelling is the definitive statement on cities by the renowned public intellectual Richard Sennett. In this sweeping work, he traces the anguished relation between how cities are built and how people live in them, from ancient Athens to twenty-first-century Shanghai. He shows how Paris, Barcelona, and New York City assumed their modern forms; rethinks the reputations of Jane Jacobs, Lewis Mumford, and others; and takes us on a tour of emblematic contemporary locations, from the backstreets of Medellín, Colombia, to the Google headquarters in Manhattan. Through it all, he laments that the “closed city”—segregated, regimented, and controlled—has spread from the global North to the exploding urban agglomerations of the global South. As an alternative, he argues for the “open city,” where citizens actively hash out their differences and planners experiment with urban forms that make it easier for residents to cope. Rich with arguments that speak directly to our moment—a time when more humans live in urban spaces than ever before—Building and Dwelling draws on Sennett’s deep learning and intimate engagement with city life to form a bold and original vision for the future of cities.
