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. Also in the Seriously Useful Guides Series: * The Crit * The The Portfolio * The Dissertation

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 denZwanzigerjahren 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.

Eine Architektur, die in einer sinnlichen Verbindung zum Leben stehen soll, erfordert ein Denken, das über Form und Konstruktion weit hinausgeht. Dieses Buch, dessen erste Auflage seit Jahren vergriffen ist, wurde nun um drei neue Essays ergänzt: “Hat Schönheit eine Form?”, “Die Magie des Realen” und “Das Licht in der Landschaft”. Das Buch erhielt nicht nur eine neue Typografie von Hannele Grönlund, sondern wurde mit eigens von Laura Padgett neu aufgenommen Farbfotos von Zumthors neuem Wohn- und Atelierhaus in Haldenstein auch durchgehend neu illustriert. In seinen Texten bringt Peter Zumthor zum Ausdruck, was ihn zu diesen Gebäuden motiviert, die Gefühl und Verstand auf so vielfältige Weise ansprechen und über eine unbedingte Präsenz und Ausstrahlung verfügen.
