What opportunities does Design to Value afford the built environment? Design to Value is a commitment to process above all else. Well understood and applied in the manufacturing industries, its potential is only now starting to be realised in architecture, engineering and construction. It challenges designers to lead the way in creating more innovative and stakeholder-centric analyses, workflows, construction techniques and products. Through architectural thinking, value in the built environment can be maximised. Seeking to create deep and lasting impacts on industry, society and the planet, Design to Value rejects architecture’s current professional services model. The design and delivery stages of traditional procurement routes are not sustainable, and Design to Value outlines a new path for informed design processes. Bryden Wood, leading international expert in Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and the Platform approach to Design for Manufacture and Assembly (P-DfMA), has spent the last fifteen years developing Design to Value as part of a new framework for the future of the design and construction industry. In this essential book, the practice challenges architects and the wider industry to think differently about how value is generated, enhanced and retained in the built realm, providing a method that will improve outcomes for architects, clients, industries and society. Architects must bend and break habitual processes to build better systems, better buildings and better futures. Features:Over 125 images, including photographs, sketches and diagramsOver 20 international case studies, including those from Canada, France, India, Italy, Japan, Saudi Arabia and USAProjects from leading practices, such as Atelier Bow-Wow, BIG, David Miller Architects, Kieran Timberlake and Lacaton & Vassal, as well as Bryden Wood.

The Work of Art Value in Creative Careers


Free Download The Work of Art: Value in Creative Careers By Alison Gerber
2017 | 208 Pages | ISBN: 0804798311 | PDF | 2 MB
Artists are everywhere, from celebrities showing at MoMA to locals hoping for a spot on a café wall. They are photographed at gallery openings in New York and Los Angeles, hustle in fast-gentrifying cities, and, sometimes, make quiet lives in Midwestern monasteries. Some command armies of fabricators while others patiently teach schoolchildren how to finger-knit. All of these artists might well be shown in the same exhibition, the quality of work far more important than education or income in determining whether one counts as a "real" artist. In The Work of Art, Alison Gerber explores these art worlds to investigate who artists are (and who they’re not), why they do the things they do, and whether a sense of vocational calling and the need to make a living are as incompatible as we’ve been led to believe. Listening to the stories of artists from across the United States, Gerber finds patterns of agreements and disagreements shared by art-makers from all walks of life. For professionals and hobbyists alike, the alliance of love and money has become central to contemporary art-making, and danger awaits those who fail to strike a balance between the two. The stories artists tell are just as much a part of artistic practice as putting brush to canvas or chisel to marble. By explaining the shared ways that artists account for their activities―the analogies they draw, the arguments they make―Gerber reveals the common bases of value artists point to when they say: what I do is worth doing. The Work of Art asks how we make sense of the things we do and shows why all this talk about value matters so much.

Capital Redefined A Commonist Value Theory for Liberating Life


Free Download S. A. Hamed Hosseini, "Capital Redefined: A Commonist Value Theory for Liberating Life "
English | ISBN: 1032374764 | 2023 | 140 pages | EPUB, PDF | 2 MB + 6 MB
Capital Redefined presents a unique perspective on the nature of "capital," departing from the prevailing reductionist accounts. Hosseini and Gills offer an expanded perspective on Marxian value theory by addressing its main limitations and building their own integrative value theory. They argue that the current understanding of "value" must be re-examined and liberated from its subservient ties to capital while acknowledging the ways in which capital appropriates value. This is achieved by differentiating between "fetish value" created by capital and "true value" generated through various commons-based forms of coexistence.
