Item Description: PRINCETON ARCHITECTURAL PRESS, 2016. 176 pages. Recent technological developments in biology, computation, cybernetics, engineering, industrial design, materials, and robotics allow architecture to evolve beyond static functionality and become an active participant—with the capacity to perceive, react to, and connect—with humans and the natural world. The first process-based guide by Michael Fox and Miles Kemp introduced interactive architecture in 2009, and the past few years have seen its prototypical potential unleashed, manifest in the eighteen inventive projects featured in this follow-up, the latest in our Architecture Briefs series.BOOK ARCHITECTURAL Interactive Architecture: Adaptive World illustrates how structures can process information, make observations, and utilize tools to translate natural systems and create seamlessly integrated environments, from data-driven light installations, responsive sculptures, and performative materials, to smart highways, dynamic spaces, kinetic facades, and adaptive buildings. Ambitious projects from around the world, including Abu Dhabi, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Frankfurt, London, Paris, Sochi, and Zurich, are illuminated by photographs, diagrams, and renderings BOOK ARCHITECTURAL.

Item Description: SCHEIDEGGER & SPIESS PUBLISHERS, 2015. 210 pages. Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is one the most influential architects of the 20th century. In the Scandinavian countries, his influence is arguably most pronounced in the writings and art of the Danish experimentalist Asger Jorn (1914-1973). Their collaboration on Le Corbusier's pavilion for the 1937 Paris World Exhibition sparked Jorn's lifelong fascination with the great architect and with architecture more broadly as an inherently public form of art. At the same time, Le Corbusier began revealing his work in visual art and started to move from a rational, technological approach to architecture, towards a more poetic, materialist one. Published in collaboration with the Museum Jorn, Silkeborg, What Moves Us? focuses specifically on the reception of Le Corbusier in Scandinavia, with the relationship between Jorn and Le Corbusier as a thematic thread. The book first highlights the architect's change of direction and subsequently takes readers through his influence on the young artist. The book's distinguished contributors explore the relationships that emerged among their artistic theories and practices, including Jorn's later critique of Le Corbusier. Essays also explore the wider influence of Le Corbusier on Scandinavian architecture and urbanisation and consider Le Corbusier alongside the Danish architect Jorn Oberg Utzon and the Aarhus Brutalism movement.

Las imágenes son explicaciones, metáforas, fundaciones, recuerdos e intenciones. Son confesiones poéticas y filosóficas. Revelan una perspectiva personal sobre los pensamientos. Muestran la raíces de la arquitectura y las expectativas relativas a los proyectos. Consciente e inconsciente. Las biografías son escritas por los propios arquitectos. Las imágenes son pequeñas, legibles e interpretables como iconos. Como colecciones individuales, presentan una visión personal de un mundo individual, mientras que en su conjunto proporcionan una visión universal del origen perceptible de la arquitectura contemporánea.

Item Description: LAMICRO, 2014. 376 pages. "Nos toca hoy agradecer a la lucidez y a la paciencia de los arquitectos Fernando Nanclares y Nieves Ruiz la valoración -el descubrimiento, podría decirse- de una "Edad de Oro" de la moderna arquitectura asturiana, aquella que se desarrolló durante los años cincuenta y primera parte de los sesenta. Una época especialmente feliz, plena y desinhibida, en la que una modernidad sin condiciones se manifestó en forma expresiva, y casi superficial a veces, por medio del estilo moderno; esto es, de sus elementos e ingredientes más propios como fueron las formas y los colores libres, las composiciones nuevas y llamativas no comprometidas con la tradición, manifestaciones así de una época nueva, de un mundo distinto que la arquitectura moderna aspiraba a cobijar y a representar. El libro, desplegando con orden y frescura la atractiva antología que ha logrado reunir y articular, demuestra por completo que esa época existió verdaderamente y que sus ejemplares supervivientes, sus restos y sus documentos y testimonios son capaces de enseñarnos la profundidad y el alcance de esa "Edad de Oro" que acaso, por tenerla tan cercana, no fuimos capaces de percibir bien.

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: PARK BOOKS, 2016. 160 pages. Iceland has fewer than 350,000 inhabitants, with half in Reykjavik, but the beautiful yet sparsely inhabited island in the North Atlantic is rich in natural resources. In particular, its huge hydrothermal and geothermal potential allows for the production of sustainable energy, which can be utilized in various industries. As a result, Iceland has become increasingly attractive for industrial development. Icelandic Lessons presents the findings from recent research efforts undertaken by Laboratory Basel (Laba), founded in 2005 as a satellite studio affiliated with the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. Swiss architect Harry Gugger established the studio with the aim of offering an all-encompassing education that enables architects to understand the design and building process in its entirety, and thus be proactive participants in the creation of the built environment. The objective of Laba’s most recent research was to investigate the potential spatial and ecological impact of industrialization on Iceland by exploring key areas of conflict, including the relationships between landscape and architecture, rural and urban areas, and nature and culture, among others. Highly illustrated with photographs, maps, and plans, the book presents not only a carefully imagined future, but also the part architecture and design can play in making it better.book architectural.

Item Description: PARK BOOKS, 2016. 272 pages. In this first book to collect the achievements of 4a Architekten, Wolfgang Bachmann presents a selection of seventeen projects that exemplify the firm’s work along with more than three hundred plans and photographs of both proposed and realized projects and a comprehensive catalog of their works. As the architects of some of the most exceptionally beautiful and well-planned public swimming pools and spas—like the Thermal Baths in Bad Ems and the Spa Therme Wien—4a Architekten are widely considered to be among the most creative and innovative in the world. But the firm, consisting of Matthias Burkart, Alexander von Salmuth, Ernst Ulrich Tillmanns, and Eberhard Pritzer (until 2001), has also overseen the development of houses and hotels, as well as sports facilities, cultural centers, and educational institutions throughout Germany, Austria and, most recently, Russia. Bachmann has carefully selected projects to convey the full range of 4a Architekten’s work from its founding in 1990 to the present, offering a fascinating look at the firm’s approach to a set of design challenges, from locations steeped in culture and history to the need for plans to suit specific functional use. The book also includes two essays that explore the firm’s history and practice, as well as three shorter literary texts.BOOK ARCHITECTURAL. Bookseller Inventory # 978-3-906027-93-7

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: UNIVERSITAT AUTONOMA DE BARCELONA, 2016. 128 pages. El artista tiene el poder de parar el tiempo y acumular en este instante toda la historia anterior sobre su obra. Es como un frenazo en un autobús con todos los pasajeros pegados en el cristal delantero. Podría también decir que el futuro queda estampado en este cristal; pero el artista no se plantea el futuro. Se le da. La arquitectura es el único arte en donde el plagio es una forma de hacer habitual. Tras la mala, regular o buena letra del estilo se esconden generaciones de arquitectos que no tenían nada que decir. El orden ha llegado hasta hoy como un seguro para la arquitectura, no siendo otra cosa que máscara para algo sin rostro, costra ante un rostro presente a pesar de sus sepultureros.LIBRO ARQUITECTURA La cultura institucional no me sirve. Me sirve todo aquello asimilado con alguna intención. Trabajo exclusivamente con este material. Hoy, tengo la impresión que siempre he pensado y he vivido como arquitecto; que mi arquitectura proviene de la experiencia de las cosas comunes y cercanas, y poco de las lejanas y transcendentes. El resultado de esta forma de entender la cultura puede resultar muy primario, muy agresivo y hasta salvaje, y la arquitectura nada apacible. El que busca confort en el arte se equivoca. Vivir de modo permanente rodeado de obras de arte o dentro de él induce al suicidio.LIBRO ARQUITECTURA. Bookseller Inventory # 978-84-608-5199-8

Este libro recoge una conversación, inédita hasta ahora, que el arquitecto barcelonés mantuvo con Enrique Walker en 1999 a raíz de un escrito del propio Miralles sobre James Lord y Alberto Giacometti, una de las últimas conversaciones importantes mantenida con Luis Moreno Mansilla y Emilio Tuñón y una serie de fragmentos de otras conversaciones en las que Miralles reflexiona sobre los arquitectos que marcaron su forma de entender la profesión. Los diálogos vienen acompañados de un texto del editor del libro, Carles Muro, que ofrece las claves fundamentales para interpretar la extraordinariamente rica variedad de cuestiones que Miralles abordó a lo largo de su intensa trayectoria.LIBRO ARQUITECTURA.

Item Description: Marcial Pons Ediciones de Historia, S.A., 2015. 496 pages. Los Rothschild son algo más que un mito en la historia europea y, en especial, española. Más allá de tópicos, filias y fobias sobre esta dinastía de banqueros judíos, ellos han sido un referente de la presencia extranjera en la historia económica española y una de las instituciones que más riqueza ha movilizado en el conjunto de las economías contemporáneas de Occidente. Este libro repasa cómo esta familia de banqueros desembarcó en España a inicios del siglo XIX y desarrolló un complejo entramado de relaciones financieras con la Corona, el gobierno y el Banco de España, hasta convertirse en el punto de referencia de la financiación pública, y cómo llegó a controlar las mayores empresas del país. Una historia de poder e influencia sobre la economía y las instituciones del país que no ha tenido parangón en el largo y tortuoso camino de España hacia la modernidad y el progreso.

Item Description: SOMOGY, 2015. 112 pages. Issues du Mouvement moderne, les villes de La Grande Motte (1974), Brasília 1960 et Chandigarh (1953) se caractérisent chacune par des architectures assez distinctes. Ces trois œuvres du patrimoine contemporain nous interpellent sur la place de l’homme dans la cité et la promesse d’une utopie. Lumière, espaces consacrés, liberté de mouvement permettent une disponibilité, pour rêver, être habité. L’interaction entre les photographies de Stéphane Herbert et la poésie de Carole Lenfant invite à une promenade urbaine ponctuée par les jeux d’ombre et la densité des couleurs. Accord architectural, temporalité des corps, le voyage commence autour des pyramides de Jean Balladur, passe par les coupoles d’Oscar Niemeyer puis se termine sur l’esplanade du Capitole de Le Corbusier. Des plages de la Méditerranée à la nouvelle civilisation qu’est le Brésil jusqu’à l’Inde immémoriale : invitation à méditer sur trois villes anticonformistes et oniriques, trois villes ouvertes et universelles.

Item Description: UNIVERSIDAD AUTONOMA DE MADRID, 2011. Book Condition: NEW. NUEVO. 188 pages. "Este es el segundo título, de los tres publicados por la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Dpto. de Prehistoria), de la serie Tecnología y Conservación del Patrimonio Arqueologico, con el ánimo de cubrir el espacio, y ocuparse de la vertiente patrimonial de la Arqueología desde una perspectiva científico-técnica. La serie pretende poner de manifiesto las relaciones de transversalidad existente entre ciertas ramas de las Humanidades y de las Ciencias Experimentales. Esta combinación de intereses, permite tanto el desarrollo instrumentos tecnológicos con una aplicación cada vez más directa sobre las obras que constituyen nuestro legado patrimonial, como la obtención de resultados directos que mejoran la conservación de los objetos de las culturas de nuestro pasado. Los talleres de metalistería de la España Medieval produjeron piezas doradas de una calidad excepcional, escasamente conocidas y conservadas. Este proyecto tuvo como objetivo principal abordar los problemas que afectan a la conservación y restauración de estos objetos antiguos de metal dorado. Nos propusimos investigar en detalle las causas que determinan la singularidad de su proceso de deterioro, con las técnicas de análisis más adecuadas y actualizadas de la tecnología científico técnica. Con estos mismos procedimientos analíticos quisimos valorar el proceso tecnológico del dorado, apenas investigado hasta el momento par la época medieval e la Península Ibérica. Con ello, se ha podido obtener un diagnóstico preciso de su estado de conservación, y así poder alcanzar el objetivo final del proyecto: "experimentar y aplicar técnicas y procedimientos de restauración más adecuados y eficaces que garanticen la buena conservación de los metales dorados, a fin de que cumplan la función social de nuestro Patrimonio Arqueologico" Títulos de la serie: Disponibles Innovación Tecnológica en Conservación y Restauración del Patrimonio. 2006 Tecnología y Conservación del Patrimonio Arqueológico / I.

Item Description: MERRELL HOLBERTON, 2015. 320 pages. Published in association with the Architecture Foundation, NEW ARCHITECTS 3 showcases the wealth of emerging architectural talent in the UK. It provides a unique guide to over 85 of the most innovative and talented young architectural practices, many of which are destined to become the leading practices tomorrow. With this publication, the third in a groundbreaking series that began in 1998, the Architecture Foundation continues its tradition of championing new generations of architects and helping the development of many young practices. The first edition of NEW ARCHITECTS was cited by architects and clients alike as the one key reference source for the commissioning of public and private projects, offering a critical outlook on the buoyant UK architectural scene. The Observer newspaper said of NEW ARCHITECTS 2, published in 2001 by Merrell, 'In terms of providing an insight into future trends in architecture, it is hard to beat.' Today the UK scene remains lively and diverse with London marked out as arguably the pre-eminent international city for ambitious and innovative design. Yet it is still difficult for young practices to gain commissions. This brand new book, featuring practices selected by a jury of architectural professionals, represents the next generation of talent, and will be invaluable for all those interested in the best new additions to our built environment. The book arranges the featured practices in alphabetical order, and provides a comprehensive, independent expert assessment of each practice, along with contact details and a total of 450 colour illustrations of recent projects. Offering both practical information on how to get the most out of the client/architect relationship and an overview of the architecture scene in the UK, this book will not only serve as a reference for clients, advisers and urban planners, but also as resource to inspire readers and celebrate the value of high-quality contemporary architecture.BOOK ARCHITECTURAL.

Item Description: BIRKHAUSER VERLAG A.G., 2016. 312 pages. Over the last 30 years, interest has grown in using clay as an environmentally friendly building material that has proved its ideal sustainability for centuries. Light earth constructions, where a wooden framework or timber-framed walls are infilled with clay and fiber material, have extraordinarily solid, structural characteristics. Earth constructions are no longer considered exotic today, which, in part, is due to this standard work. The publication presents the use of this "old" building material comprehensively and modernly, and contains many practical tips about simplifying designs as well as using prefabricated clay materials in the contemporary construction process. The selected project examples show the diversity of this building material, and the self-build projects demonstrate the beauty of working with lightweight earth using your own hands. The book is aimed at builders, architects and engineers, producers and artisans, as well as self-builders. Bookseller Inventory # 978-3-0356-0634-8
