Headed by Trevor Abramson, FAIA, and Douglas Teiger, AIA, the award-winning Los Angeles firm designs dynamic structures of wood, glass, concrete, stone, and steel, with stripped-down forms and expansive windows that create a strong indoor/outdoor connection. Sustainability is central to the firm’s designs, which often incorporate new materials that promote thermal stability, bodies of water for evaporative cooling, and a strong focus on natural light.

Alexander Schreyer, "Architectural Design with SketchUp: Component-Based Modeling, Plugins, Rendering, and Scripting"
English | ISBN: 1118123093 | 2012 | 320 pages | PDF | 43 MB

How to get spectacular results with the 3D-modeling app SketchUp
While it is easy to pick up the basic techniques of SketchUp, going beyond these essentials requires step-by-step instruction and practice. Architectural Design with SketchUp provides the knowledge needed to move past the basics and take full advantage of SketchUp as a powerful 3D modeling tool. After a SketchUp refresher, this user-friendly handbook covers component-based modeling for assembly, scheduling, collaborative design, and modeling with a BIM approach. It demonstrates the use of plugins for 3D modeling, fabrication, data integration, and analysis (energy efficiency, etc.), as well as rendering in SketchUp, enhancing with Photoshop, and combining with hand-drawn content. It also offers easy tutorials for creating complex geometry using Ruby coding.

Alfred Rambaud, made its appearance, it was immediately welcomed by the press of both countries with the most flattering approval, and it was also crowned by the French Academy. The London Athenaeum says of it : " We have the ' Histoire de la Russie/ by M. Alfred Rambaud, who, by his 'Russie E pique' and other publications, has already shown himself a competent scholar. In this book we have the results of the researches of all the latest Russian historiographers summarized; he has especially laid under contribution the voluminous labors of Solovief and Oustrialov, and the less ambitious productions of Kostomarov and Bestuzhev-Rioumin.
