Italomodern 2 - Architecture in Northern Italy 1946-1976 (Paperback): Martin Feiersinger, Werner Feiersinger Italomodern 2 - Architecture in Northern Italy 1946-1976 (Paperback)
Martin Feiersinger, Werner Feiersinger
R1,053 R642 Discovery Miles 6 420 Save R411 (39%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Martin Feiersinger, Vienna-based architect, and his brother Werner Feiersinger, artist and photographer, have travelled extensively around Northern Italy to document the region's modern architecture from the three decades immediately following World War II. Their view focused on individual buildings rather than entire urban structures, the Feiersingers have selected projects by representatives of neo-realist and rationalist, brutalist, or organic architectural schools. Italomodern 2 features another 124 buildings with photographs, a brief descriptive text also giving the exact address, as well as with selected floor plans, sections, or elevations. The images present a subjective point of view, showing each building in its present state. A map of Northern Italy and an appendix, providing rich information on the architects and listing also selected other buildings and further reading for each firm, complement the architectural portraits. Italomodern 1 and 2, each an entirely self-contained book, make handy and smartly structured guides for architecture lovers and professionals alike.

The Ghosts of Berlin - Confronting German History in the Urban Landscape (Paperback): Brian Ladd The Ghosts of Berlin - Confronting German History in the Urban Landscape (Paperback)
Brian Ladd
R402 R323 Discovery Miles 3 230 Save R79 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In the twenty years since its original publication, The Ghosts of Berlin has become a classic, an unparalleled guide to understanding the presence of history in our built environment, especially in a space as historically contested--and emotionally fraught--as Berlin. Brian Ladd examines the ongoing conflicts radiating from the remarkable fusion of architecture, history, and national identity in Berlin. Returning to the city frequently, Ladd continues to survey the urban landscape, traversing its ruins, contemplating its buildings and memorials, and carefully deconstructing the public debates and political controversies emerging from its past.

In early 15th-century Florence an idea took root that was to change art and society for ever: the revival of classical Rome, its values, its culture and its architecture. Abruptly rejecting the Gothic style of the Middle Ages, European architects eagerly adopted a new set of principles to create some of the most wonderful buildings of all time.

An Archaeology of Architecture - Photowriting the Built Environment (Hardcover): Dennis Tedlock An Archaeology of Architecture - Photowriting the Built Environment (Hardcover)
Dennis Tedlock; Foreword by Arthur Sze
R914 R702 Discovery Miles 7 020 Save R212 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Page by page, this book takes us on a journey through the built world that ranges from Greece to Guatemala and from New York to San Francisco. Tedlock practices what he calls photowriting, a creative process that brings photographer and writer together in the same person. It may be true enough that a photograph can show more than words can say, but it is equally true that words can say more than a photograph can show. A third space opens up in the middle, where the viewer-reader can look back and forth between image and text at will.

Tedlock looks at the built world with the eye of an archaeologist and ethnographer. His long experience as a fieldworker has made him acutely aware of the ways in which buildings are continuously altered by human actions and natural forces. Anthropology assigns ruins to archaeology and structures currently in use to ethnology, but Tedlock reminds the viewer that an occupied building bears marks of the same processes that produce archaeological remains. As he puts it, "Whenever I look around at the worlds humans build for themselves, I see archaeology in the making."

Twenty-Five Buildings Every Architect Should Understand - a revised and expanded edition of Twenty Buildings Every Architect... Twenty-Five Buildings Every Architect Should Understand - a revised and expanded edition of Twenty Buildings Every Architect Should Understand (Paperback, 2nd New edition)
Simon Unwin
R770 Discovery Miles 7 700 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Twenty-Five Buildings Every Architect Should Understand is an essential companion to Simon Unwin's Analysing Architecture, and part of the trilogy which also includes his Exercises in Architecture: Learning to Think as an Architect. Together the three books offer an introduction to the workings of architecture providing for the three aspects of learning: theory, examples and practice. Twenty-Five Buildings focusses on analysing examples using the methodology offered by Analysing Architecture, which operates primarily through the medium of drawing. In this second edition five further buildings have been added to the original twenty from an even wider geographical area, which now includes the USA, France, Italy, Mexico, Switzerland, Spain, Finland, Germany, Australia, Norway, Sweden, India and Japan. The underlying theme of Twenty-Five Buildings Every Architect Should Understand is the relationship of architecture to the human being, how it frames our lives and orchestrates our experiences; how it can help us make sense of the world and contribute to our senses of identity and place. Exploring these dimensions through a wide range of case studies that illustrate the rich diversity of twentieth and twenty-first century architecture, this book is essential reading for every architect.

Sussex: East - With Brighton and Hove (Hardcover, Revised): Nicholas Antram Sussex: East - With Brighton and Hove (Hardcover, Revised)
Nicholas Antram
R817 R751 Discovery Miles 7 510 Save R66 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The East Sussex volume of The Buildings of England covers an area ranging from the High Weald in the north of the county to the massive ridge of the South Downs and the resort towns and ancient ports of the coast. Its coastal resorts are particularly distinguished, none more so than Brighton and Hove, where John Nash's oriental Pavilion for the Prince Regent sets the tone. Elsewhere castles at Camber, Bodiam and fortified town walls at Rye and Winchelsea attest to its military past and Battle Abbey to its medieval endowments. The towns and villages are especially rich in timber-framed, brick and tile houses for which the county is famous. The twentieth century makes its mark in the exhilarating De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill, and the uncompromising forms of the 1960s University of Sussex campus.

Gothic Wonder - Art, Artifice, and the Decorated Style, 1290-1350 (Hardcover): Paul Binski Gothic Wonder - Art, Artifice, and the Decorated Style, 1290-1350 (Hardcover)
Paul Binski
R1,158 R1,078 Discovery Miles 10 780 Save R80 (7%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this wide-ranging, eloquent book, Paul Binski sheds new light on one of the greatest periods of English art and architecture, offering ground-breaking arguments about the role of invention and the powers of Gothic art. His richly documented study locates what became known as the Decorated Style within patterns of commissioning, designing, and imagining whose origins lay in pre-Gothic art. By examining notions of what was extraordinary, re-evaluating medieval ideas of authorship, and restoring economic considerations to the debate, Binski sets English visual art of the early 14th century in a broad European context and also within the aesthetic discourses of the medieval period. The author, stressing the continuum between art and architecture, challenges understandings about agency, modernity, hierarchy, and marginality. His book makes a powerful case for the restoration of the category of the aesthetic to the understanding of medieval art. Generously illustrated with hundreds of images, "Gothic Wonder" traces the impact of English art in Continental Europe, ending with the Black Death and the literary uses of the architectural in works by Geoffrey Chaucer and other writers.

Design through Dialogue - A Guide for Architects and Clients (Paperback): Karen A. Franck, Teresa Von Sommaruga Howard Design through Dialogue - A Guide for Architects and Clients (Paperback)
Karen A. Franck, Teresa Von Sommaruga Howard
R962 R699 Discovery Miles 6 990 Save R263 (27%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

Completed projects receive more public attention than the process of their creation and so the myth that architects design buildings alone lives on. In fact, architects work with a great many others and the relationships that develop, particularly with clients, have a significant impact on design. "Design through Dialogue" explores the relationship between client and architect through the lens of four overlapping activities that occur during any project: relating, talking, exploring and transforming.

Cases of design and collaboration range from smaller scale retail, residential and educational projects in the US, Sweden, the UK and the Pacific Rim to large institutions, including Seattle's Central Library, the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC, the Supreme Court in Jerusalem and the Museum of New Zealand. Material is taken from interviews with clients and architects and research in psychotherapy, group dynamics and design studies. Throughout the book aspects of process are linked to design outcomes to illustrate how architects and clients collaborate creatively.

INFINITE SPAN - 90 Years of Brazilian Architecture (English, German, Hardcover): INFINITE SPAN - 90 Years of Brazilian Architecture (English, German, Hardcover)
R1,018 R716 Discovery Miles 7 160 Save R302 (30%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In architecture, a span is something to be conquered, a challenge to overcome. For an instance by reducing the number of supports, expanding floor slabs horizontally, tearing into the open air, and shedding more light on the ground floor. But span, or "vao" in Portuguese, also means a project or an action that ends in failure: something that was done in vain. For Brazilian architects, the word vao is almost always a synonym of freedom. In Brazil, modernization was touted as a leap over the country's history, cast as "backwardness" and, in the case of architecture, over the absence of two traditions: the classical and the artisanal-an abysmal jump, in the face of the immense scale of its territory. And a challenge met head-on by an ambitious aesthetic avant-garde, invested in new design and remarkable engineering. Brazil is a country "condemned to the modern," said the critic Mario Pedrosa, conceiving this condemnation as liberation from tradition and as a freedome to transform what could be done in vain ("em vao") in the effective cultural conquest of the free span ("vao livre"). This publication assembles representative projects and works of Brazilian architecture made between 1920 and 2018, among them Oscar Niemeyer, Roberto Burle Marx, PAulo Mendes da Rocha, Sergio Ferro and Lina Bo Bardi. It will propose crosscutting dialogues between the presented projects and highlight the intersections between architecture, music, literature, cinema, and performing arts. The book is structured in six chronological and thematic modules with titles corresponding to outstanding songs of each period.

An illuminating collection of essays from the preeminent scholar of architectural history and theory One of the most distinguished scholars in the fields of architectural history and theory today, James Sloss Ackerman is best known for his work on Italian masters such as Palladio and Michelangelo. In this collection of essays, Ackerman offers insight into his formation and development as a scholar, as well as reflections on a range of topics. Concise, lucid, and original, this book presents deep syntheses alongside innovative approaches and a broadening geographical and chronological reach. Ackerman's enduring fascination with architecture was one unforeseen consequence of his military service in World War II, and the collection includes a revealing account of his part in the liberation of Milan as a soldier in the Fifth American Regiment. These essays represent a unique, personal journey-from the Italian Renaissance to the classical architecture of India and the work of Frank Gehry at the new museum of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris.

The city has become an important new starting point in the quest for architecture. At a time of extreme urbanisation, unharnessed urban growth has led many architects to rethink the way that buildings are designed for the global metropolis. It is no longer practical or desirable to impose the standardised, idealized planning of the 20th century. Rather than viewing the city as a fixed entity, architects are now seeking direct inspiration from the existing urban environment and learning from its ever-changing state that resists predetermination. The city, in all its complexity, has become a realm of invention and a space for possibilities where new designs can be tested. This is as apparent in the work that architects are undertaking in the informal settlements, or favelas, of Latin America, as in the more regulated spaces of Chicago, London or Tokyo. Favouring an inclusive way of viewing the city, no aspect of the urban world is any longer rejected outright, and architects and urban designers instead find potential and learn from the underlying dynamics of the contemporary city. This attitude highlights the generative capacities of the city and finds new ways of engaging it. At the very least, it advances an architectural thinking that engages the city on its own ground, abets its potential and seeks opportunities in the existing condition.

Preservation and the New Data Landscape (Paperback): Erica Avrami Preservation and the New Data Landscape (Paperback)
Erica Avrami
R501 R390 Discovery Miles 3 900 Save R111 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Over the past fifty years, preservation policy has evolved very little, despite escalating accusations that landmarking and historic districting can inhibit affordable housing, economic development, and socioeconomic diversity. The potential to understand these dynamics and effect positive change is hindered by a lack of data and evidence-based research to better understand these impacts. One of the biggest barriers to preservation research has been the lack of data sets that can be used for geospatial, evidence-based, and longitudinal analyses. This first book in the series Issues in Preservation Policy explores the ways that enhancing the collection, accuracy, and management of data can serve a critical role in identifying vulnerable neighborhoods, understanding the role of older buildings in economic vitality and community resilience, planning sustainable growth, and more. For preservation to play a dynamic role in sustainable development and social inclusion, policy must evolve beyond designation and design regulation and use evidence-based research to confront new realities in the management of urban environments and their communities.

A photographic exploration of the post-war modernist architecture of London. This collection of unique and evocative photography of Brutalist architecture by Simon Phipps casts the city in a new light. Arranged by inner London Borough, BRUTAL LONDON takes in famous examples such as the Trellick Tower, the Brunswick Centre and the Alexandra Road Estate, as well as lesser known housing and municipal spaces. It serves as an introduction to buildings the reader may see every day, an invitation to look differently, a challenge to look up afresh, or to seek out celebrated Brutalism across the capital. The book's portable size and maps for each borough make it useful and practical; while the design, by leading agency A Practice for Everyday Life, echoes the aesthetic of Brutalist architecture with rough textured edges and fonts inspired by the site maps of modernist estates.
