    Design between Tradition and Innovation„new olds" presents sixty exhibits that explore design between tradition and innovation. Design has a short and highly successful history in the West. Outside the western hemisphere too design is gaining significance, and not just as a profession. What are seen as successful idioms are copied and varied, but many of the motifs that are sold as "new" actually derive from a historical context and formal idiom, and are self-contained products of one country or culture, representing a new interpretation of traditional forms. Designers today are taking a keen interest in tradition in both a strategic and formal and aesthetic sense – in recycling and redesign, by transforming design classics and using traditional methods for new materials.The exhibition "new olds. Design between Tradition and Innovation" is the latest in a series of design exhibitions in which the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen e.V. (ifa) focuses on specific trends in design.With contributions from: Volker Albus (curator), Renny Ramakers, Gerrit Terstiege, Wolfgang Ullrich.Book to accompany international exhibition.

    This handbook explores the design of a solar assisted air-conditioning system. It provides an overview of the various solutions used to convert solar heat into useful cooling as well as offers specifics and detailed specifications. Our energy system faces a fundamental transformation and renewable energies will play a dominant role in the future energy supply. One of the promising solutions is the use of solar thermal energy in buildings, for cooling, heating and domestic hot water preparation. Solar thermal systems for providing heat and cold to industrial processes show a high potential, too. In the last decade, the application of solar driven cooling systems achieved a significant progress. Steps forward have been taken in the design of system concepts to specific needs and in more reliable and efficient operation of the installed plants. New systems are available on the market and cover a broad range of cooling capacities and driving temperatures. This handbook provides an overview on the various solutions to convert solar heat into useful cooling, reports about experiences made with realized installations and gives support in the design process. Its use will strongly contribute to achieve high quality solar cooling systems which provide significant energy savings and fulfil the user s requirements in a safe and reliable way.
