  • The Noise Landscape
  • The expansive areas around large airports, affected by noise, infrastructure, and transient forms of architecture, have until now not been researched as a phenomenon. But these noise landscapes are emerging worldwide, often surpassing the neighbouring city in size, and sometimes rivalling it in economic importance.

    On the basis of eight European case studies (Amsterdam, Zurich, London-Heathrow, Frankfurt, Munich, Madrid and the two Paris airports) this book provides the first account of how these landscapes emerged as the result of technical determinations, what is taking place in them, and how they can be interpreted.

    The book is the outcome of several years of research by the chair of Kees Christiaanse at the ETH Zurich.

  • City As Loft - Adaptive Reuse as a Resource for Sustainable Urban Development
  • Former docksides, industrial estates and railway areas are the focus of ‘The City As Loft’. Recently, the debate about future developments in European cities has focused to a large extent on the transformation of urban areas. This is precisely the field in which KCAP/ASTOC has produced its most innovative work. Old docksides and railway areas are some of the few innercity locations that are still available for development. In many cities, these sites (known as ‘waiting lands’) may be able to save the concept of urban character and inject it with new meaning.
