Frank Lloyd Wright

Author: Paul Laseau
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 0471288837
Release Date: 1991-12-15
Genre: Architecture

Despite the renewed interest in Frank Lloyd Wright and the increasing body of literature that has illuminated his career, the deeper meaning of his architecture continues to be elusive. His own writings are often interesting commentaries but tend not to enlighten us as to his design methodology, and it is difficult to make the connection between his stated philosophy and his actual designs. This book is a refreshing account that evaluates Wright′s contribution on the basis of his architectural form, its animating principle and consequent meaning. Wright′s architecture, not his persona, is the primary focus of this investigation. This study presents a comprehensive overview of Wright′s work in a comparative analytical format. Wright′s major building types have been identified to enable the reader to pursue a more systematic understanding of his work. The conceptual and experiential order of each building group is demonstrated visually with specially developed analytical illustrations. These drawings offer vital insights into Wright′s exploration of form and underscore the connection between form and principle. The implications of Wright′s work for architecture in general serves as an important underlying theme throughout. This volume also integrates the research of several noted scholars to clarify the interaction of theory and practice in Wright′s work, as well as the role of formal order in architectural experience in general. By seeing how Wright integrates his intuitive and intellectual grasp of design, the reader will build a keen awareness of the rational and coherent basis of his architecture and its symbiotic relationship with emotional, qualitative reality. A graphic taxonomy of plans of Wright′s building designs helps the reader focus on specific subjects. Among the diverse areas covered are sources and influences of Wright′s work, domestic themes and variations, public buildings and skyscraper designs, and the influence of site on design. Complete with a chronology of the master architect′s work, Frank Lloyd Wright: Between Principle and Form is an important reference for students, architects and architectural historians.

Industrial Instrumentation

Author: Tattamangalam R. Padmanabhan
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781447104513
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Science

Pneumatic, hydraulic and allied instrumentation schemes have given way to electronic schemes in recent years thanks to the rapid strides in electronics and allied areas. Principles, design and applications of such state-of-the-art instrumentation schemes form the subject matter of this book. Through representative examples, the basic building blocks of instrumentation schemes are identified and each of these building blocks discussed in terms of its design and interface characteristics. The common generic schemes synthesized with such building blocks are dealt with subsequently. This forms the scope of Part I. The focus in Part II is on application. Displacement and allied instrumentation, force and allied instrumentation and process instrumentation in terms of temperature, flow, pressure level and other common process variables are dealt with separately and exhaustively. Despite the diversity in the sensor principles and characteristics and the variety in the applications and their environments, it is possible judiciously to carve out broad areas of application for each type of sensor and the instrumentation built around it. The last chapter categorises instrumentation schemes according to their different levels of complexity. Specific practical examples - especially at involved complexity levels - are discussed in detail.
