Blender pour l architecture
L'outil libre de conception 3D Logiciel libre de référence pour la création d'images et l'animation 3D, Blender peut avantageusement remplacer 3ds Max, Cinema4D et même Google SketchUp dans la conception de projets architec¬turaux, depuis la modélisation de l'espace et des bâtiments jusqu'au rendu final. Utilisable aussi bien sous Windows et Linux que sous Mac OS X, il est en constante évolution et offre toute une panoplie d'outils dont la puissance et la souplesse permettent d'allier rapidité et créativité, tout particulièrement dans la conception de formes libres. Libérez vos créations architecturales en 3D grâce aux formidables possibilités de Blender ! Utilisez les maillages comme de la pâte à modeler virtuelle pour mettre en forme vos idées Réalisez des formes organiques ou adoucies grâce à la subdivision de surface Apprenez à utiliser les courbes pour une modélisation plus intuitive Profitez d'outils avancés (déformations, copies...) pour obtenir des volumes plus complexes Modélisez précisément des bâtiments déjà conçus Augmentez le réalisme de vos créations en y appliquant des matériaux et des textures Eclairez vos scènes de façon réaliste et effectuez le rendu avec le moteur interne ou Cycles Réalisez des visites virtuelles ou animez l'environnement d'un projet Préparez vos modèles pour l'impression 3D Personnalisez l'interface et améliorez votre efficacité avec les raccourcis clavier En annexe : Préférences utilisateur - Ressources web - Comment choisir son matériel ? A qui s'adresse cet ouvrage ? Architectes, architectes d'intérieur, dessinateurs-projeteurs et graphistes dans le domaine de l'immobilier Graphistes, illustrateurs et designers de jeux vidéo amenés à créer des scènes architecturales Etudiants en architecture ou en graphisme cherchant un outil 3D performant qu'ils pourront continuer à utiliser dans leur vie professionnelle Passionnés de 3D souhaitant découvrir un nouveau logiciel ou une nouvelle approche de conception Préface d'Abel Groenewolt
Gardening with Less Water
Are you facing drought or water shortages? Gardening with Less Water offers simple, inexpensive, low-tech techniques for watering your garden much more efficiently — using up to 90 percent less water for the same results. With illustrated step-by-step instructions, David Bainbridge shows you how to install buried clay pots and pipes, wicking systems, and other porous containers that deliver water directly to a plant’s roots with little to no evaporation. These systems are available at hardware stores and garden centers; are easy to set up and use; and work for garden beds, container gardens, and trees.
On Such a Full Sea
“Watching a talented writer take a risk is one of the pleasures of devoted reading, and On Such a Full Sea provides all that and more. . . . With On Such a Full Sea, [Chang-rae Lee] has found a new way to explore his old preoccupation: the oft-told tale of the desperate, betraying, lonely human heart.”—Andrew Sean Greer, The New York Times Book Review “I've never been a fan of grand hyperbolic declarations in book reviews, but faced with On Such a Full Sea, I have no choice but to ask: Who is a greater novelist than Chang-rae Lee today?”—Porochista Khakpour, The Los Angeles Times From the beloved award-winning author of Native Speaker and The Surrendered, a highly provocative, deeply affecting story of one woman’s legendary quest in a shocking, future America. On Such a Full Sea takes Chang-rae Lee’s elegance of prose, his masterly storytelling, and his long-standing interests in identity, culture, work, and love, and lifts them to a new plane. Stepping from the realistic and historical territories of his previous work, Lee brings us into a world created from scratch. Against a vividly imagined future America, Lee tells a stunning, surprising, and riveting story that will change the way readers think about the world they live in. In a future, long-declining America, society is strictly stratified by class. Long-abandoned urban neighborhoods have been repurposed as highwalled, self-contained labor colonies. And the members of the labor class—descendants of those brought over en masse many years earlier from environmentally ruined provincial China—find purpose and identity in their work to provide pristine produce and fish to the small, elite, satellite charter villages that ring the labor settlement. In this world lives Fan, a female fish-tank diver, who leaves her home in the B-Mor settlement (once known as Baltimore), when the man she loves mysteriously disappears. Fan’s journey to find him takes her out of the safety of B-Mor, through the anarchic Open Counties, where crime is rampant with scant governmental oversight, and to a faraway charter village, in a quest that will soon become legend to those she left behind.
Ada Twist Scientist
The creators of the New York Times bestselling picture books Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect are back with a story about the power of curiosity in the hands of a child who is on a mission to use science to understand her world. Ada Twist, Scientist, from powerhouse team Andrea Beaty and David Roberts, is a celebration of STEM, perseverance, and passion. Like her classmates, builder Iggy and inventor Rosie, scientist Ada, a character of color, has a boundless imagination and has always been hopelessly curious. Why are there pointy things stuck to a rose? Why are there hairs growing inside your nose? When her house fills with a horrific, toe-curling smell, Ada knows it’s up to her to find the source. Not afraid of failure, she embarks on a fact-finding mission and conducts scientific experiments, all in the name of discovery. But, this time, her experiments lead to even more stink and get her into trouble! Inspired by real-life makers such as Ada Lovelace and Marie Curie, Ada Twist, Scientist champions girl power and women scientists, and brings welcome diversity to picture books about girls in science. Touching on themes of never giving up and problem solving, Ada comes to learn that her questions might not always lead to answers, but rather to more questions. She may never find the source of the stink, but with a supportive family and the space to figure it out, she’ll be able to feed her curiosity in the ways a young scientist should. Iggy Peck and Rosie Revere have earned their places among the most beloved children’s characters, and they have inspired countless kids and adults to follow their dreams and passions. Now in her own charming and witty picture book, determined Ada Twist, with her boundless curiosity for science and love of the question “Why?,” is destined to join these two favorites. The book is the perfect tool to remind both young girls and women that they have the intelligence and perseverance to achieve their dreams.
