Energy Efficiency Solutions for Historic Buildings: A Handbook

Das Handbuch für die energetische Sanierung von historischen Gebäuden basiert auf bauphysikalischen Prinzipien und berücksichtigt zugleich die Kriterien zur Erhaltung von historischer Bausubstanz. In einem holistischen Ansatz werden, von der ersten Diagnose bis hin zu klaren und pragmatisch gestalteten Interventionen, drei Grundsätze des energieeffizienten Gebäudes verwoben: Erhaltung der historischen Bausubstanz, Nutzerkomfort und Energieeffizienz. Mit Konstruktionsbeispielen, umfangreichen Berechnungen und Ergebnissen von Messreihen, die anhand von acht Best-Practice-Fallstudien erstellt wurden, ist das Handbuch ein unverzichtbares Instrument für die Instandsetzung und energetische Ertüchtigung von historischen Gebäuden. Die Inhalte wurden über mehrere Jahre von einem interdisziplinären Forscherteam erarbeitet und spiegeln die ganze Bandbreite der verschiedenen Fachkompetenzen wider.

At its most expansive, the Roman Empire stretched from the British Isles to Egypt; Rome was the ancient world's greatest superpower. Roman Architecture: A Visual Guide is an illustrated introduction to the great buildings and engineering marvels of Rome and its empire. Published as a companion volume to Diana E. E. Kleiner's course on Roman Architecture given through Coursera (first offered in January 2014 but based on a class she has long taught at Yale), this enhanced e-book explores not only Rome but also buildings preserved at Pompeii, Herculaneum, Ostia, Tivoli, North Italy, Sicily, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Jordan, Lebanon, and North Africa. Beginning with the birth of Rome as an Iron Age village, Roman Architecture traces the growth and expansion of the Roman Empire through its cities, which featured civic, religious, commercial, entertainment, and residential districts in the urban setting. A valuable resource for both the student and the traveler, Roman Architecture features over 250 photographs and site plans of the most intriguing and consequential buildings in the Roman Empire. These are presented from the fresh perspective of an author who has journeyed to nearly all of the sites, revealing most of them through her own digital images. In addition, this interactive e-book makes learning about these monuments easier than ever, with handy maps and geolocation links that show you just where the monuments are and, if you're traveling, how to get there. Suitable for the classroom and as a guidebook, Roman Architecture is a fascinating introduction to some of history's most compelling and influential architecture.

Introduction to Shipping Container Homes: 

Shipping container homes are houses that are built using shipping containers. The strength, durability, availability, and the cost effectiveness of containers as building material has made these types of homes popular in recent years. When you buy a container, it might appear as hollow boxes with no windows or openings. However, these boxes are highly customizable; they can be stacked and welded together to create beautiful yet economical homes. The next section is about the pros and cons of living in a shipping container home.
