Adrian Frutiger – Typefaces: The Complete Works, Edition 2

Walter de Gruyter
Free sample

The international creation of typefaces after 1950 was decisively influenced by the Swiss type designer Adrian Frutiger. His Univers typeface and the machine-readable font OCR-B, which was adopted as an ISO standard, are milestones, as is his type for the Paris airports, which set new standards for signage types and evolved into the Frutiger typeface. With his corporate types, he helped to define the public profiles of companies such as the Japanese Shiseido line of cosmetics. In all he created some fifty types, including Ondine, Méridien, Avenir, and Vectora.
Based on conversations with Frutiger himself and on extensive research in France, England, Germany, and Switzerland, this publication provides a highly detailed and accurate account of the type designer’s artistic development. All of his types – from the design phase to the marketing stage – are illustrated and analyzed with reference to the technology and related types. Hitherto unpublished types that were never realized and more than one hundred logos complete the picture.
This second, revised and expanded study edition, which now has an index, makes Frutiger’s achievement even more accessible.

For more than ten years, the celebrated artist Per Arnoldi of Copenhagen has been working together with the world famous London architect Norman Foster. Arnoldi’s contributions range from posters of Foster’s buildings to targeted chromatic interventions in interior spaces to the complex total "chromatic concept” for a massive new structure. His color choices serve to create atmosphere and also guide the user clearly through the space. This book provides systematic and detailed documentation of this entire collaborative spectrum. Projects include: the Commerzbank in Frankfurt, the Reichstag in Berlin, the Imperial College in London, HM Treasury in London, the National Police Monument in London, the Arag Tower in Düsseldorf, the World Port Center in Rotterdam, and Decaux’s headquarters in London. The photographs were taken specially for this book to capture the specific qualities of the interplay between space and color.

Seit über zehn Jahren arbeitet der renommierte Kopenhagener Künstler Per Arnoldi mit dem weltberühmten Londoner Architekten Norman Foster zusammen. Vom Plakat, das ein Foster-Gebäude vorstellt, über gezielte Farbinterventionen im Innenraum bis zum komplexen Gesamtkonzept für die farbliche Ausgestaltung großer Neubauten reichen Arnoldis Beiträge. Seine Farbgebungen dienen zugleich der atmosphärischen Verdichtung wie der klaren Benutzer-Wegleitung im Raum. Dokumentiert wird dieses gesamte Spektrum der Zusammenarbeit auf systematische und ausführliche Weise. Dargestellte Projekte sind: Commerzbank in Frankfurt, Reichstag in Berlin, Imperial College in London, HM Treasury in London, National Police Monument in London, Arag in Düsseldorf, World Port Center in Rotterdam, Decaux Headquarters in London. Die Fotos wurden eigens für dieses Buch aufgenommen, um die spezifischen Qualitäten der Wechselwirkung von Raum und Farbe einzufangen.

Architecture: Form, Space, and Order, Fourth Edition is the classic introduction to the basic vocabulary of architectural design, updated with new information on emerging trends and recent developments. This bestselling visual reference helps both students and professionals understand the vocabulary of architectural design by examining how space and form are ordered in the environment.

Essential and timeless, the fundamental elements of space and form still present a challenge to those who crave a deeper understanding. Taking a critical look at the evolution of spaces, Architecture distills complex concepts of design into a clear focus that inspires, bringing difficult abstractions to life. The book is illustrated throughout to demonstrate the concepts presented, and show the relationships between fundamental elements of architecture through the ages and across cultures. Topics include:

Primary elements and the principles of space design Form and space, including light, view, openings, and enclosures Organization of space, and the elements and relationships of circulation Proportion and scale, including proportioning systems and anthropometry
The present AutoCAD reference guide is, basically, an extension of our teaching, training and working experience in the CAD (Computer Aided Design) field and covers only ~200 commands of AutoCAD. In a productivity war, not only fewer weapons (tools and commands) force us to imbibe the defeat, but more than enough weapons are also suicidal (because we have less time for selection of weapon, too). So a compromising balance has been tried to achieve the optimum.

The available average good books on AutoCAD are horribly containing 2-3 thousands of pages for main text, with dozens of pages, only for their contents. All these mess is full of unnecessary details of even very simpler commands, which user can easily learn intuitively. Even after the bulk of pages they skip some really useful commands, which could otherwise boost the productivity of end user. 

While this reference guide is intended to provide a compact guide of AutoCAD to a wide range of working CAD professionals and students, ranging from engineering streams (architectural, civil, mechanical, electrical, etc.) to non-technical streams. We are relying heavily on the AutoCAD’s user friendly interface while writing the reference guide, as after entering the command alias in AutoCAD, it,  itself, tells ‘n asks for minimum ‘n necessary details through command line. So, practically, there is no need of written procedural details.

As this reference guide book is complimentary with the ‘AutoCAD-Advanced’ and ‘AutoCAD-Professional’ courses of ‘4Dimensions’, most commands given in this guide need at least one time lab training on real projects by an experienced tutor/professional. Each command, once mastered, doesn’t need the whole procedure to be remembered exactly (as different versions may have different procedures).
