Building the Golden Gate Bridge - A Workers' Oral History (Paperback): Harvey Schwartz Building the Golden Gate Bridge - A Workers' Oral History (Paperback)
Harvey Schwartz
R560 R435 Discovery Miles 4 350 Save R125 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Silver Award Winner, 2016 Nautilus Book Award in Young Adult (YA) Non-Fiction Moving beyond the familiar accounts of politics and the achievements of celebrity engineers and designers, Building the Golden Gate Bridge is the first book to primarily feature the voices of the workers themselves. This is the story of survivors who vividly recall the hardships, hazards, and victories of constructing the landmark span during the Great Depression. Labor historian Harvey Schwartz has compiled oral histories of nine workers who helped build the celebrated bridge. Their powerful recollections chronicle the technical details of construction, the grueling physical conditions they endured, the small pleasures they enjoyed, and the gruesome accidents some workers suffered. The result is an evocation of working-class life and culture in a bygone era. Most of the bridge builders were men of European descent, many of them the sons of immigrants. Schwartz also interviewed women: two nurses who cared for the injured and tolerated their antics, the wife of one 1930s builder, and an African American ironworker who toiled on the bridge in later years. These powerful stories are accompanied by stunning photographs of the bridge under construction. An homage to both the American worker and the quintessential San Francisco landmark, Building the Golden Gate Bridge expands our understanding of Depression-era labor and California history and makes a unique contribution to the literature of this iconic span.

As the dynamo of South Africa's economy, Johannesburg commands a central position in the nation's imagination, and scholars throughout the world monitor the city as an exemplar of urbanity in the global South. This richly illustrated study offers detailed empirical analyses of changes in the city's physical space, as well as a host of chapters on the character of specific neighbourhoods and the social identities being forged within them. Informing all of these is a consideration of underlying economic, social and political processes shaping the wider Gauteng region. A mix of respected academics, practising urban planners and experienced policymakers offer compelling overviews of the rapid and complex spatial developments that have taken place in Johannesburg since the end of apartheid, along with tantalising glimpses into life on the streets and behind the high walls of this diverse city. The book has three sections. Section A provides an overview of macro spatial trends and the policies that have influenced them. Section B explores the shaping of the city at district and suburban level, revealing the peculiarity of processes in different areas. This analysis elucidates the larger trends, while identifying shifts that are not easily detected at the macro level. Section C is an assembly of chapters and short vignettes that focus on the interweaving of place and identity at a micro level. With empirical data supported by new data sets including the 2011 Census, the city's development planning and urban management department's information system, and Gauteng city-region Observatory's substantial archive, the book is an essential reference for planning practitioners, urban geographers, sociologists, and social anthropologists, among others.

The New Space - Movement and Experience in Viennese Modern Architecture (Hardcover): Christopher Long The New Space - Movement and Experience in Viennese Modern Architecture (Hardcover)
Christopher Long
R1,285 R1,160 Discovery Miles 11 600 Save R125 (10%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Scholars have long stressed the problem of ornament and expression when considering Viennese modernism. By the first decade of the 20th century, however, the avant-garde had shifted its focus from the surface to the interior. Adolf Loos (1870-1933), together with Josef Frank (1885-1967) and Oskar Strnad (1879-1935), led this generation of architects to interpret modernism through culture and lifestyle. They were interested in the experience of architectural space: how it could be navigated, inhabited, and designed to reflect the modern way of life while also offering respite from it. The New Space traces the theoretical conversation about space carried out in the writings and built works of Loos, Frank, and Strnad over four decades. The three ultimately explored what Le Corbusier would later-independently-term the architectural promenade. Lavishly illustrated with new photography and architectural plans, this important book enhances our understanding of the development of modernism and of architectural theory and practice.

The Encyclopedia of Ancient Egyptian Architecture (Hardcover, 1st ed): Dieter Arnold The Encyclopedia of Ancient Egyptian Architecture (Hardcover, 1st ed)
Dieter Arnold
R1,600 Discovery Miles 16 000 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"This first English edition of Dieter Arnold's "Encyclopedia of Ancient Egyptian Architecture" is very much to be welcomed. One of the great advantages of Arnold's work is that it is written by a single specialist, well-acquainted with the monuments, experienced in field-work, and a very good communicator. The greatest value lies in the extended entries on particular types of building, on specifically Egyptian stylistic characteristics, and on the employment in ancient Egypt of certain materials and technical methods. "The Encyclopedia of Ancient Egyptian Architecture" will indeed fill a very obvious gap in the range of Egyptological reference works."--T.G.H. James, Formerly Keeper of Egyptian Antiquities, The British Museum

"Unquestionably, Arnold's "Encyclopedia of Ancient Egyptian Architecture" is a most significant addition to the field of Egyptology and to the study of ancient architecture in general, while also serving student and lay needs for a comprehensive reference work. Its significance lies largely in the amount of information provided on an extraordinarily wide range of topics; it moves from temples, tombs, and other monumental structures to the arenas of the living, such as palaces, houses, and towns. This refreshingly catholic interpretation of architecture is especially valuable in a reference work that treats all of its topics with seriousness and care. Arnold's judgement, vast experience, and sensitivity to the data and the relevant Egyptian cultural context are also at work throughout the Encyclopedia. These contribute in an unobtrusive but powerful way to the great value of the book."--David O'Connor, Lila Acheson Wallace Professor in Ancient Egyptian Art, Institute of Fine arts, New York University, and Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania

"Providing students and the larger public with an accessible, up-to-date, and comprehensive reference work on ancient Egyptian architecture, this book is unquestionably a significant addition to the fields of Egyptology and ancient architecture. Dieter Arnold's judgment, vast experience, and sensitivity to the data and the relevant Egyptian cultural context are at work throughout the Encyclopedia. With no significant competitor in English, this book stands alone."--David O'Connor, Institute of Fine Arts, New York

"It seems possible that the Egyptologist Dieter Arnold knows more about ancient Egyptian architecture than the Egyptians did themselves, and "Ancient Egyptian Architecture" adopts an encyclopedic format to present his knowledge of building techniques, architectural styles, and individual sites and monuments. . . . [It] is clearly and engagingly written, and supported by 350 well-chosen plans, drawings, and photographs."--Christina Riggs, "Times Higher Education Supplement"

More than twenty years after its initial publication, Michael Kenna's seminal collection of photographs of the Ford River Rouge industrial complex is now available in a new, revised, and expanded edition. One of the world's most acclaimed photographers working exclusively in black-and-white, Michael Kenna has traveled the world to create stunning, magical images of nature and manmade objects. Known for the ethereal tone and incredibly nuanced detail of his photographs, Kenna is also a chronicler of environmental degradation. His images of an auto plant outside of Detroit, Michigan, are some of his best-known works. Long out of print, Rouge has been brought back to life with a spectacular new design, an authoritative essay by art historian James Steward, and many previously unpublished images that were part of the original series. As the city of Detroit struggles to reclaim its heritage as an American commercial and artistic hub, these photographs resonate more than ever with the stark realities and hidden beauty of the industrial landscape.

The city of Cork is a place of tradition, continuity, change and legacy.

Interspaces and free spaces have gained much public attention recently. This current discourse is reflected in the work of Austrian architects Henke Schreieck Architects, LAAC, and Sagmeister & Walsh. They interpret free space as both a spatial and a spiritual construct, as a complex dynamic system and versatile realm shaped by coexistence. Thoughts Form Matter features spatial installations these three firms have created for this year's 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennial. They partly merge into each other, materialise and visualise concepts such as Deviation, Atmosphere, and Beauty. The book documents the projects with rich illustrative material and interviews with the architects exploring the underlying ideas and notions. Rounded out by an introductory essay by Verna Konrad, Thoughts Form Matter is a plea for the power of architecture as intellectual investigation and for the freedom to create spaces which are uninhibited by functional and economic constraints. Text in English and German.

R1,416 Discovery Miles 14 160 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Bauforschung is a fundamental part of every methodology specifically designed to evaluate and maintain historical buildings. The first step towards censervation and restoration involves being well informed about a building's cultural and historical importance: thus it is necessary to survey it in all its different aspects and at every possible level of significance.This requires a thorough investigation by a specialist or Bauforscher who is trained as an architectural historian, in the most fundamental sense of the term. Bauforschung involves the first investigative phase of archtectural historical research, combining the analysis of archaeological, historical and iconographical source material with the complete recording of a building's appearance and pathology. The German word Bauforscher can in fact be translated literally as "building researcher," implying not only a mastery of the skills of the historian, archaeologist and architect, but also of the materials specialist and the surveyor. This book contains the report on the experiences of building researchers from many different European countries, who met at the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation in 1996."

Atomic Ranch is an in-depth exploration of post-World War II residential architecture in America. Mid-century ranches (1946-1970) range from the decidedly modern gable-roofed Joseph Eichler tracts in the San Francisco Bay area and butterfly wing houses in Palm Springs, Florida, to the unassuming brick or stucco L-shaped ranches and split-levels so common throughout the United States. Authors Michelle Gringeri-Brown and Jim Brown, founders and publishers of the popular quarterly Atomic Ranch magazine, extol the virtues of the tract, split-level, rambler home and its many unique qualities: private front facades, open floor plans, secluded bedroom wings, walls of glass, and an easy-living lifestyle. From updated homes with high-end Italian kitchens, terrazzo floors, and modern furniture to affordable homeowner renovations with eclectic thrift-store furnishings, Atomic Ranch presents twenty-five homes showcasing inspiring examples of stylish living through beautiful color photographs, including before and after shots, design-tip sidebars, and a thorough resource index.

Atomic Ranch reveals:

Hallmarks of the ranch style

Inspiring original ranch homes

Ranch house transformations and makeovers

Preservation of mid-century neighborhoods

Adding personality to a ranch home

Yards and landscaping
