This book is published on the occasion of the emeritus status awarded to Professor Richard Foque, ir. arch, MSc. His successful career as founder and partner of an architect firm, professor in design theory and Head of the Department of Design Science has provided opportunities to meet colleagues both at home and abroad. No less than twenty-two colleagues were more than pleased to write a personal contribution in the framework of their own field of expertise, to explore the boundaries between art and science, knowledge and research, theory and practice, representation and reality. Thus, the Liber Amicorum became a "book of friends" linking the evolution in science to an unheard of self-expression in architecture, product development and culture. Dit boek wordt uitgegeven ter gelegenheid van het emeritaat van prof. ir.arch. Richard Foque. Zijn rijke loopbaan als manager van een architectenbureau, professor in de ontwerptheorie en departementshoofd heeft geleid tot talrijke ontmoetingen met collega's in binnen- en buitenland. Tweeentwintig ervan werden bereid gevonden om vanuit hun eigen kennis- en beroepsveld een persoonlijke bijdrage te schrijven, die de grenzen tussen kunst en wetenschap, kennis en onderzoek, theorie en praktijk, voorsteilling en werkelijkheid, beleid en werkelijkheid zouden aftasten. Zo groeide het Liber Amicorum uit tot een volwaardig boek, waarin de actuele evolutie in de wetenschap in relatie wordt gebracht met een nooit tevoren gekende zelfexpressie in architectuur, productontwikkeling en cultuur.

The central premise of Design for Transport is that the designer's role is to approach design for transport from the point of view of the user. People have a collection of wants and needs and a significant proportion of them are to do with their requirements for mobility. The authors show how creative designers can take a user-focused approach for a wide range of types of transport products and systems. In so doing their starting point is one of creative dissatisfaction with what is currently available, and their specialist capability is in imagining and developing new solutions which respond to that opportunity. How this is tackled varies depending on the context, and the variety of solutions produced reflects the different aspirations and needs of the people they are designing for. The chapters cover user needs and transport, design and the transport system, transport design case studies, and the case for the automobile. A conclusion briefly signals what the future for transport design might be. Lavishly illustrated throughout in four-colour, Design for Transport, is an imaginative and rigorous guide to how designers can take a user-centred and socially responsible approach to tackling a range of types of transport, from systems to products and from bicycles to automobiles, demonstrating a rich array of solutions through case studies.

Tony Willard has been--amongst many other things in motor publishing motoring correspondent of the Birmingham Evening Mail and Editor of Automotive Management (now called AM)--the best read trade paper for the motor retail trade. There are now stacks of ways to buy cars in the UK. So many that it is really hard for consumers to know where to get best choice, best value, best service, best after-care, best credit or whatever it is that they prioritise. In addition to franchised dealers there are: manufacturers selling direct to the public; rental car companies doing the same; car-buying agents; car supermarkets; used car dealers; internet traders; importers; auctions; and personal shoppers. Most car buying guides concentrate on WHAT to buy whether it be new or used. This book covers that, but assumes the buyer knows roughly what he wants. What has been missing until now is a guide through the jungle of places and prices which tells you WHERE to buy and HOW to pay not a penny more than necessary.
