Author: Iain Borden,Katerina Ruedi Ray
The Dissertation is one of the most demanding yet potentially most stimulating components of an architectural course. This classic text provides a complete guide to what to do, how to do it, when to do it, and what the major pitfalls are. This is a comprehensive guide to all that an architecture student might need to know about undertaking the dissertation. The book provides a plain guide through the whole process of starting, writing, preparing and submitting a dissertation with minimum stress and frustration. The third edition has been revised throughout to bring the text completely up-to-date for a new generation of students.

The year out, or internship, in a professional practice can be the most rewarding experience in an architectural student's education. It can also be a shock to the system to find that architectural working practices are very different to architectural study. This book provides a beginner's guide to professional practice and a step-by-step guide on how to find the placement that best suits your goals. It is the fourth title in the successful 'Seriously Useful Guides...' series. In order to give you a real insight into professional experience, this guide includes real life case studies from students who have been through the experience and from practices that have taken them on. It guides you through the steps of finding a placement, outlines the norms and expectations for internship in different countries, and discusses codes of office behavior and professional ethics. Contemporary architectural practices are becoming increasingly diverse and this guide outlines some Practical experience/Internship choices, providing cases studies of award wining firms that offer practical experience. These case studies range from conventional practices based on the art of building, to practices based on digital media or contemporary urbanism. Finally, the term 'critical practice' is becoming increasingly important, and the book provides some definitions and examples of critically based architectural practices.

Die Entstehung einer neuen Tradition
Author: Sigfried Giedion
Der Architekturhistoriker Sigfried Giedion gilt als ein Wegbereiter der Moderne, sein 1941 unter dem Titel Space, Time, Architecture erstmals erschienenes Werk ist längst zu einem Klassiker der Architekturtheorie avanciert. Giedion skizziert darin die Vorgeschichte und die Entwicklung des in den Zwanzigerjahren so bedeutungsvollen neuen Bauens und veranschaulicht dessen weltweite Auswirkungen. In der Vielfalt oft widersprüchlicher Tendenzen suchte er die geheime Synthese, in der sich eine neue Tradition ankündigte, ohne dass sie zunächst zu einer bewussten und handlungsbestimmenden Realität wurde. Giedion wurde so zu dem Historiker, der das Entstehen dieser neuen Tradition in der Architektur sowie ihre Beziehungen zu Handwerk, Kunst und Wissenschaft sichtbar machte und so immer noch zur Transparenz des gegenwärtigen Zustands beiträgt. Das Nachwort des Architekturkritikers Reto Geiser erläutert die Aktualität dieses in alle Weltsprachen übersetzten Standardwerks.
An Architecture Student's Handbook
Author: Rosie Parnell,Rachel Sara,Charles Doidge,Mark L. Parsons
The architectural crit, review or jury is a cornerstone of architectural education around the world. The defence of ideas, drawings, and models in an open format before staff and peers is intended to be a foreground for healthy creative debate, but many students view it as hostile confrontation – an ego trip for staff and humiliation for them. This accessible and immensely enjoyable book guides students through this academic minefield. This fully updated edition includes advice and suggestions for tutors on how to model a crit around a broad range of learning styles, as well as a new section aimed at students with learning disabilities, to ensure that the process is constructive and beneficial for all architecture and design scholars. Packed with practical tips from tutors, students and professionals, this reassuringly honest book will prepare students to build more creative relationships with clients and users across the industry. Also in the Seriously Useful Guides series: * Practical Experience * The Dissertation * The Portfolio * Unique guide to a crucial event in every architecture student's life * Includes additional material for tutors on alternative review formats that will suit a broad range of learning styles * Humorous and accessible advice written by students for students

Ranging across topics such as planning a research programme and data management and the handling of ethical issues, the book will be very helpful to those embarking on a thesis or dissertation in the field." - Peter Fidler, President of the University of Sunderland Research Design in Urban Planning: A Student’s Guide is a brilliantly accessible guide to designing research for that all-important dissertation. Aimed at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, this text will: · discuss research design, outlining the stages of the research process in clear detail and the key decisions which need to be taken at each stage · explain to students how to re-interpret policy issues as researchable questions, appropriate for investigation · look in detail at how researchers make their choice of methods, helping students to justify their own decisions · reveal the ethical dimension to such decisions in the context of a growing requirement for the ethical approval of student projects · review the issues for comparative studies – important not least because of student involvement in Erasmus programs and AESOP workshops Packed with case studies, exercises, illustrations and summaries, Research Design in Urban Planning is an invaluable resource for students undertaking their first substantial, individual investigations.
