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.

Russian Architecture and the West (Hardcover): Dimitri O. Shvidkovsky Russian Architecture and the West (Hardcover)
Dimitri O. Shvidkovsky; Photographs by Yekaterina Shorban; Translated by Antony Wood
R1,480 R1,349 Discovery Miles 13 490 Save R131 (9%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This is the first book to show the development of Russian architecture over the past thousand years as a part of the history of Western architecture. Dmitry Shvidkovsky, Russia's leading architectural historian, departs from the accepted notion that Russian architecture developed independent of outside cultural influences and demonstrates that, to the contrary, the influence of the West extends back to the tenth century and continues into the present. He offers compelling assessments of all the main masterpieces of Russian architecture and frames a radically new architectural history for Russia.
The book systematically analyzes Russian buildings in relation to developments in European art, pointing out where familiar European features are expressed in Russian projects. Special attention is directed toward decorations based on Byzantine models; the heritage of Italian master builders and carvers; the impact of architects and others sent by Elizabeth I; the formation of the Russian Imperial Baroque; the Enlightenment in Russian art; and 19th- and 20th-century European influences. With over 300 specially commissioned photographs of sites throughout Russia and western Europe, this magnificent book is both beautiful and groundbreaking.

R1,739 Discovery Miles 17 390 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A History of Architecture and Urbanism in the Americas is the first comprehensive survey to narrate the urbanization of the Western Hemisphere, from the Arctic Circle to Antarctica, making it a vital resource to help you understand the built environment in this part of the world. The book combines the latest scholarship about the indigenous past with an environmental history approach covering issues of climate, geology, and biology, so that you'll see the relationship between urban and rural in a new, more inclusive way. Author Clare Cardinal-Pett tells the story chronologically, from the earliest-known human migrations into the Americas to the 1930s to reveal information and insights that weave across time and place so that you can develop a complex and nuanced understanding of human-made landscape forms, patterns of urbanization, and associated building typologies. Each chapter addresses developments throughout the hemisphere and includes information from various disciplines, original artwork, and historical photographs of everyday life, which - along with numerous maps, diagrams, and traditional building photographs - will train your eye to see the built environment as you read about it.

The 1950s Home (Paperback): Sophie Leighton The 1950s Home (Paperback)
Sophie Leighton
R183 R142 Discovery Miles 1 420 Save R41 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The 1950s home presented an exciting new way of living for the generation that moved out of the suburbs. Young couples who had previously rented accommodation in urban centres found themselves able to afford new-build homes with hot running water, an indoor bathroom and aerials for the wireless already installed. Some four million houses were erected, mostly in cosy semi-detached styles that harked back to traditional cottage architecture. The design elite rejected this 'Stockbroker Tudor' look and opted instead for brave, flat-roofed modernist villas. This book introduces the homes that people fell in love with in the 1930s, and the fixtures and fittings that went in them. Packed with illustrations and informative chapters on architectural styles, gardens, furnishings and technology in the home, this book is an ideal introductory guide to the houses of the period.
