Item Description: BIRKHAUSER VERLAG A.G., 2016. 136 pages. A key issue for building in existing fabric The role of art in building reuse In-depth analysis of international examples Aims and Scope Design interventions for the reuse of existing structures must face the question of the past and the extent to which it should be included in the design for the future. This is the point of departure of Int | AR, a yearly publication on current issues in international adaptive reuse. When and how is material from an existing building the catalyst for art? When does art create function and program within adaptive reuse projects? How can art transform the economics of a built context? When and where does art become building and building become art? This Int | AR volume presents essays, built or unbuilt projects and ideas that investigate the relationship of art and building reuse.BOOK ARCHITECTURAL. Bookseller Inventory # 978-3-0356-0834-2

Item Description: PRESTEL, 2015. 208 pages. A generously illustrated monograph on the acclaimed French architect and engineer Marc Mimram whose original work is influenced by both disciplines. Since his debut as an architect and engineer with a footbridge over a highway in Toulouse, France, Marc Mimram has completed a large number of civil engineering structures and architectural projects in France and around the world. This book highlights Mimram's distinctive penchant for connecting architecture with the natural world, as well as his profound understanding of the relationship between design and structure. Looking at key themes in Mimram's work over three decades, this volume examines works such as the School of Architecture in Strasbourg and the award-winning Hassan II Bridge in Morocco to show how the architect's elegant and economical designs evolve from an appreciation of the natural or urban landscape of each project.PUBLIARQ.COM.

Item Description: BRAUN, 2014. 272 pages. Architecture on the water has changed from a fringe niche market into an increasingly popular sector. Catalyst is the risk of rising water levels accompanied by storms and floods as part of the climate change and the unforeseen effects of urbanization. Expanding the habitable areas to beyond the waterfront is an efficient and exciting way to bring extra flexibility to the planet’s inhabited spaces. Floating constructions enlarge the built environment while making it more livable and sustainable. Apart from the long tradition of floating residential architecture, buildings of all types are being erected on water today. The selection of projects in this volume provides an insightful overview of the multitude of concepts in this new field of design. Bookseller Inventory # 978-3-03768-178-7

Item Description: REVERTE S.A., 2015. 310 pages. Este libro presenta una historia que aún no se había escrito con una visión amplia e interpretativa. Dicha historia se expone desde una perspectiva contemporánea que aborda la complejidad de la realidad y describe unas experiencias que son ejemplos modélicos de políticas de vivienda y de tipología arquitectónica. Los casos estudiados se interpretan no sólo en su momento de realización, sino también en su funcionamiento posterior. De todos ellos, se pone énfasis en los casos que se han concentrado en lo comunitario y en lo urbano. En la primera parte del libro se expone la amplia tradición que se inició con los experimentos del Existenzminimum, con los Höfe vieneses y las Siedlungen alemanas, y que siguió con las new towns inglesas y los grands ensembles franceses. La segunda parte explica las respuestas a la crisis del urbanismo moderno y de la vivienda funcionalista, con las alternativas ofrecidas por el organicismo, los procesos de participación, la crítica tipológica y la teoría y práctica de los soportes. La tercera parte aborda los sistemas contemporáneos: la organización en planta, los combinados modulares, la inserción en la ciudad, la creación de barrios y la superposición en capas. Por último, la cuarta parte analiza las alternativas a los sistemas dominantes: la rehabilitación, las arquitecturas medioambientales, la previsión de la periferia, la remodelación de los barrios marginales y las respuestas a situaciones de catástrofe. Para dar una visión más amplia de todo lo anterior, se ha renunciado al eurocentrismo convencional y a la presentación exclusiva de obras realizados en los países desarrollados: es decir, se han incluido numerosas experiencias llevadas a cabo en países en desarrollo. Asimismo, no se estudian sólo ejemplos convencionales de nueva planta, sino también rehabilitaciones y reciclajes, arquitecturas sostenibles y viviendas de emergencia.

Item Description: INFOLIO, 2016. 256 pages. Epuisée depuis de nombreuses années pour le public francophone, l'oeuvre fondamentale d'Aldo Rossi, l'Architecture de la ville parue en Italie en 1966, marque une étape essentielle dans l'histoire théorique de l'urbanisme. La ville dans son ensemble apparaît comme un organisme vivant qui s'alimente et se compose d'architecture, au point que le binôme architecture-ville est indissociable. Avec l'Architecture de la ville, l'espace urbain devient le territoire d'expérimentation d'une façon de regarder l'histoire comme une matière vivante. La ville construit sa propre histoire à laquelle on peut sans cesse se référer pour y bâtir aujourd'hui.publiarq.com. Bookseller Inventory # 978-2-88474-500-0

Item Description: ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS, 2016. 128 pages. The history of architecture is a story of continual innovation, and at certain points within that story come architects whose visions completely defy convention. Mavericks focuses on 12 such figures from the history of British architecture, including Sir John Soane, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Cedric Price, and Zaha Hadid. From the stripped-back classicism of Soane’s Dulwich Picture Gallery to Hadid’s neofuturistic London Aquatics Centre for the 2012 Olympics, the architects’ work is bold, frequently controversial, and often radical. It is architecture that actively resists being pigeonholed into a particular style or period. What connects this naturally disparate group of free creative spirits is the way each has charted his or her own course, often deliberately evading conventions of taste, fashion, and ways of working. This book offers a fresh take on their creations, establishing new and sometimes surprising historical connections while proposing an intriguing alternative narrative to the history of British architecture.

Item Description: BRAUN, 2016. 184 pages. From Berlin via China and Brazil to Spain Berlin’s architecture is one of the most exciting aspects of its cultural heritage. Many of its buildings are internationally renowned, and year after year local architects design countless new projects in the capital and throughout Germany. Whether new constructions or building redevelopments, interior design, landscape architecture or urban planning, projects related to the German capital stand for sophisticated concepts and high quality. As it does every year BUILDING BERLIN presents the most important and interesting projects from the past year in Berlin. The presentation of the approximately 70 projects in eight chapters is accompanied by essays on exemplary aspects. Especially noteworthy is the analysis on the protection of buildings from the postwar years The contribution "XS Living" looks at the different aspects of the current trend to live in the city on limited space and its consequences for residents, developers, designers and urban planners. Further texts deal with contemporary event locations between economic requirements, functional flexibility and the need to create always the desired atmosphere, and the use of expressionist elements in modern architecture.BOOK ARQCHITECTURAL.

Item Description: PARK BOOKS, 2016. 224 pages. Iñaki Ábalos and Juan Herreros established the renowned architectural firm Ábalos & Herreros in Madrid in 1984. At the time, following the end of the Franco regime, architects were valued more for their technical ability than for their contributions to theoretical research. In this context, Ábalos and Herreros’s melding of design with a range of publications and curatorial projects presented a remarkable challenge to assumptions about the role of an architect. In 2012, the Canadian Centre for Architecture obtained the Ábalos & Herreros archive, which contains documents related to more than 160 projects. The material comprises sketches, slides, models, collages, and drawings. The archive presents a compelling opportunity to reconstruct Ábalos and Herreros’s planning and design process. Each of the book’s three contributors—two of whom worked with Ábalos and Herreros—approaches the archive with specific questions, and their essays explore topics including the architects’ fascination with industrial architecture, their capacity to construct a hybrid materiality without recourse to building technology as language, and their innovative visions for landscape architecture. While many have written about the work of Ábalos and Herreros, previous books have been based mainly on their built projects and ongoing research. Ábalos & Herreros Selected by Office Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Juan José Castellón and SO–IL is the first book to draw on the firm’s archive to offer a new take on this important architectural practice.BOOK ARCHITECTURAL.

Item Description: DOM PUBLISHERS, 2015. 400 pages. Following decades of isolation, Myanmar has once again become a travel destination. The architecture of Yangon alone is worth a visit since more than a century’s built heritage is (still) surprisingly intact, unlike that of regional neighbours such as Hong Kong, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur. Anyone who reads the Architectural Guide Yangon (DOM publishers) will come to the same conclusion. In Rangoon – as this commercial centre of British India was known under the British – Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish and Muslim houses of worship stand side by side with stunning buildings, many of them former traders’ headquarters from Baghdad to Glasgow who, in the days of the British Empire, came to Rangoon to seek their fortune. After the country’s independence in 1948 and a relatively short phase of democracy – marred by civil war – came the notorious 1962 coup. Since then, the city has been increasingly shaped by authoritarian military regimes. Today, as Myanmar slowly re-opens to the wider world, Yangon is a bustling city in constant flux and transformation. This guide helps readers to understand this complex urban fabric. The authors Ben Bansal, Elliott Fox and Manuel Oka recall the history of the city through more than 100 striking buildings found throughout the city, from the ancient Shwedagon Pagoda to the colonial period and right up to the present day. They present lesser known architecture from the 1950s and 1960s, when the USA and the USSR fought for influence by funding buildings and sending their best architects. They describe the legacy of the military junta, places of unrest during the historic 1988 and 2007 protests, and key landmarks in the rise of opposition leader and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi. All those wanting to learn about Myanmar and its capital – or see it in a new light – will find many interesting facts, details and anecdotes in this book. Architecture serves the authors as a magnifying glass for the illumination of the historical, social and economic context. In this way, the authors succeed in providing a memorable snapshot of the former capital of a country preparing itself for crucial general elections in November 2015. With volumes on Indonesia and China being released almost simultaneously, DOM publishers is expanding the Architectural Guide series by covering three additional destinations in the Asian region.

Item Description: NORMA EDITIONS, 2016. 200 pages. Ancien élève de l’UP6 et de l’école de Chaillot, Bertrand Penneron a ouvert son cabinet en Touraine en 1988. Il a également travaillé en Thaïlande et à La Réunion. Qu’il s’engage dans la construction d’un chai de vigneron, dans la conception d’une école de musique, d’une cale fluviale, d’une école maternelle ou encore dans la transformation d’une église en centre culturel, Bertrand Penneron cherche à travailler en continuité avec le paysage plutôt que de le déstabiliser, car, pour lui, «ce sont les sites et les usagers qui donnent un sens au lieu». Dans ce livre, qui revient sur vingt-cinq ans de création, Hugo Massire retrace le parcours atypique d’une agence et de son fondateur. Projet après projet, l’auteur décrit les enjeux et les contraintes de la commande et analyse les bâtiments fondés par un architecte qui, tout en distillant sa vision personnelle dans chacune de ses propositions, notamment par l’utilisation d’une grande variété de formes et de matériaux, reste avant tout un homme d’écoute et de dialogue.publiarq.com.

Item Description: THAMES & HUDSON, 2016. 256 pages. A global overview of the most exciting lighting designs for interior spaces, featuring the latest interactive technologies, energy-efficient systems and otherworldly experiencesBOOK ARCHITECTURAL Light makes an architectural space livable, shapes it and guides us within it. The role of light reaches well beyond practical needs to create environments, emotions and spatial illusions. Today, as our homes and buildings have become increasingly interactive and connected to the ‘Internet of things’, the creative possibilities are growing exponentially. Lumitecture This timely publication captures the most imaginative ideas at the dawn of an exciting new era. The glow from every page of this dense visual and design resource will provide endless inspiration for the next generation of designers and space-makers. Some 200 projects consider the central effect produced in each case: lighting that transforms space; lighting that alters the experience of time; and lighting that evokes emotion or psychological change. Projects range from design solutions – practical applications and techniques for improving the ambience and function of our spaces for living and working – to highly experimental or immersive experiences that induce physiological responses or use entirely new sources of light, such as bioluminescence or rarefied gassesBOOK ARCHITECTURAL.

Item Description: EDITIONS PICARD, 2009. 334 pages. Les infrastructures sont longtemps restées enfermées dans le monde de la technique, comme si la « vraie ville » (édifices, rues, places, monuments.) existait sans eux et même malgré eux. Pourtant les infrastructures constituent l'élément fondamental, génésique, organisateur de la ville. Des aqueducs à la toile, en passant par l'électricité, le téléphone et les aéroports, les moyens de cheminer, conserver et apporter l'eau, ou gérer le trafic des marchandises, sont à l'origine même de la cité. Le déclin théorique et pratique du mouvement historiciste et le nouveau souffle de la modernité en architecture permettent aujourd'hui de regarder la métropole des infrastructures comme un acquis culturel et un avenir. Ce présent ouvrage entend présenter, et mettre en relief et en discussion, les différents aspects de cet acquis culturel et les divers enjeux qui lui sont liés.publiarq.com.

Item Description: ORO EDITIONS, 2015. 100 pages. The work of Francis Cauffman creates a dialogue between program and place. They reveal the relationships embedded in the environment and activities of a specific project. What is their client's true aim in doing this project? What do they do, and why do they do it? How can they influence their work? This active and essential conversation with their clients becomes the story of their architecture. Francis Cauffman integrate their clients' desired patterns of activity and their functional needs with the physical aspects of architecture. Their emerging body of work amplifies that relationship through a subtle and pragmatic resolution of the specific program for a given project. Francis Cauffman demonstrates new ways of understanding how place and program drive behaviours. They create architectural hybrids that merge a variety of uses and relate to specific environments in terms of the physical forms and human activities that they nurture and stimulate.BOOK ARCHITECTURAL.

Item Description: V & A PUBLICATIONS, 2016. 360 pages. Renowned for his iconic The Birth of Venus, Italian Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli (1445–1510) is arguably one of the greatest artists of all time. His work has inspired countless others, and his legacy is easy to see in everything from Degas’s drawings and Warhol’s first computer portrait to Jeff Koons’s album cover for Lady Gaga. As famous as he is today, Botticelli was quickly forgotten after his death, only to be rediscovered in the 19th century. Much of what we know of his art has been pieced together, as only three of his works are signed or documented. Botticelli’s continuing impact raises a number of questions: How does a painter acquire international fame? What made Botticelli a pop icon? This fascinating book, published to accompany a major exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, is the first to contrast Botticelli’s work with modern appropriations of it—including paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, videos, fashion, and design by artists such as Edgar Degas, Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, René Magritte, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, and Bill Viola.

"Designed by Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners, the Win Sing AIT Residential Towers create a new gateway for the prestigious Neihu District of Taipei, directly across from the future American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), also in design by MRY. The book features a revelatory essay by Philip Jodidio, who writes, "This work is at the edge, not the proverbial cutting edge, but at the limit between history and modernity, between the tough city and privileged views toward the green horizon. Where Charles Moore sought to break the taboos that had separated history from Modernism, MRY today integrates culture (and thus history) in a subtle, profound way with a building that is far more solid than any stage set. This link between the origins of MRY and Win Sing AIT is more than a fanciful one, it is the very reason for which this project succeeds in what must be considered a daunting challenge: defining the edge.".

Certaines de ces habitations, réparties aux quatre coins de la France, sont aujourd'hui classées.

Item Description: PRINCETON ARCHITECTURAL PRESS, 2016. 144 pages. Steve Badanes, Jim Adamson, and John Ringel believe an architect's job does not stop at designing a building, but that it extends to constructing it as well. Now working into their fifth decade, Jersey Devil, the loose-knit group they founded in 1972, bands together under this design/build ethos that an architect's place is just as much on the job site as it is at the drawing board. The trio pioneered design/build practice and their influence has spawned more than one hundred design/build programs.BOOK ARCHITECTURAL Jersey Devil's process and expertise are unpacked in this Architecture Brief, providing students and teachers with a toolkit for design/build education. Through stories, didactic commentary, and sample exercises, the Design/Build complements nuts-and-bolts content with Jersey Devil's philosophy and perspective, allowing the book to impart practical instruction while acting as a valuable guide for navigating the elusive challenges of design/build. Themes touch on socially responsible architecture, intuition and intentionality, detailing and fostering craftsmanship, group work and collaboration, off-the-shelf components and nonstandard applications, educational reform, ethos and risk, good life and play, the politics of building, and university-community relations BOOK ARCHITECTURAL.

Item Description: INFOLIO, 2016. 120 pages. "L'architecte n'est pas un homme qui jetterait quelques croquis sur une feuille de papier d'un air génial, laissant à son équipe le soin de la technique. La technique conditionne le talent. Rien n'est détail.

Item Description: ROUTLEDGE, 2015. 170 pages. Planning is undergoing a period of profound change and risks losing meaning and authority by becoming merely a tool for financial speculation and generating capital. Planning and Citizenship seeks to rediscover planning’s technical and theoretical roots by reconstructing the memory of planning through the lens of the changing relationship between planning and citizenship. Tracing the historical relationship between planning and citizenship through a single thread, Luigi Mazza employs three ancient models – those of Hippodamus, Romulus, and Ancient China – to understand the foundations of spatial governance and citizenship. Paying particular attention to classic case studies of American cities, this book moves through the development of central planning theories by key thinkers like Geddes, Cerdà, Howard, Abercrombie and Lefebre. Analysing the role of government in promoting social citizenship and symbolic values through planning, Mazza takes into account the changing role of government in planning, including concepts of neoliberalism and the minimal State. Providing critical debate over the current role of spatial governance in planning and citizenship, Planning and Citizenship offers a unique historical analysis of a crucial topic in planning.

Item Description: MAIREA, 2016. 338 pages. Curro Inza es uno de los más destacados arquitectos del organicismo madrileño y la Escuela de Madrid. Fue un personaje outsider, polifacético, brillante y con una obra arquitectónica polémica que ha generado encontradas opiniones. Una obra radical y fascinante, coetánea de la Tercera Generación Internacional, interesada en mecanismos proyectuales como el error, el método, la fantasía o lo anómalo. Hasta ahora se conocían solo una parte parcial de su trabajo pues su prematuro fallecimiento había ocultado obras y proyectos fundamentales para entenderle. Este libro presenta por vez primera un material inédito y desconocido como es la documentación original de los proyectos del autor. Y nos permite ver el mapa completo de su trabajo desde el cuál poder entender y desentrañar las pautas que rigen su arquitectura, por momentos tan contemporánea. Por otra parte decir que este libro es, hasta ahora, el único archivo catalogado de los arquitectos organicistas españoles. Y que al final del mismo se presenta un CD con el archivo digitalizado a todo color.publiarq.com. Bookseller Inventory # 978-84-942794-4-7

Item Description: LAURENCE KING, 2016. 208 pages. "While fundamentally a design discipline, architectural education requires an element of history and theory, grouped under the term "research." However, many students struggle with this part of their course. This practical handbook provides the necessary grounding in this subject, addressing essential questions about what research in architecture can be. The first part of the book is a general guide to the fundamentals of how to do research, from assembling a literature review to conducting an interview. The second section presents a selection of case studies dealing with such topics as environmental psychology, the politics of space, ethnographic research, and mapping. The range of methods explored illustrates the variety of possible approaches, with authoritative guidance on how best to deploy a research framework.BOOK ARCHITECTURAL".

Item Description: TATE PUBLISHING, 2014. 256 pages. Henri Matisse (1869 - 1954) is one of the leading figures of modern art. His unparalleled cut-outs are among the most significant of any artist's late works. When ill health first prevented Matisse from painting, he began to cut into painted paper with scissors as his primary technique to make maquettes for a number of commissions, from books and stained glass window designs to tapestries and ceramics. Taking the form of a 'studio diary', the catalogue re-examines the cut-outs in terms of the methods and materials that Matisse used, and looks at the tensions in the works between finish and process; fine art and decoration; contemplation and utility; and drawing and colour.

Item Description: BIRKHAUSER VERLAG A.G., 2015. Book Condition: NEW. NUEVO. 240 pages. Systematic, comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of this fascinating design task Documents forward-looking and innovative concepts and designs Substantial contributions by international experts on the entire design and planning process Comprehensive guide to the designing and planning of libraries Libraries as a building type has been subjected to substantial changes in particular in the past ten years. Mile-stones such as Rem Koolhaas‘ Seattle Central Library from 2004 reinvented the typology completely and reflected a development from elitist temple of learning to a public living room. Hybrids between library and department store or theater were conceived. Today, the ubiquity of electronic devices and media needs to be taken into account by the designer: every new library has areas without any books. This work of reference explains systematically all technological and planning requirements of library design. Special features such as RFID, signage, acoustics or specific structural load issues are explained in texts by experts from the fields of architecture and library science. Finally, approximately 40 best-practice case studies of contemporary library design are documented extensively. They are organized in four categories – national libraries, large public libraries, small public libraries, university libraries – and comprise high-profile examples such as Jo Coenen’s Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam, Alvaro Siza’s Public Library Viana do Castelo in Portugal or Mecanoo’s Library of Birmingham from 2013.

Item Description: 2014. Book Condition: NEW. NUEVO. 492 pages. Examining 20 years' worth of the work of architect Paola Iacucci, who has spent a career between New York and Italy, this document is a record of the often heterogeneous experience of architecture. Iacucci's projects, drawings, models, buildings, and writings offer a deep and sharp sensibility and insight into contemporary architecture as they unfold two different perspectives: those of the East and the West. The two parts of this consideration-the Book of the East and the Book of the West-investigate the subtle relation between the concepts of the void and the solid or material in architecture in two very different worlds. An additional, 100-page booklet with architectural drawings is also included. Bookseller Inventory # 978-3-902833-46-4
