About this title:

Synopsis: Owning a home is the pinnacle of the American Dream, the ultimate status symbol of the middle class. But is the dream in crisis? As the suburban single-family home has been endlessly multiplied and mass-marketed, it has become entwined with environmental catastrophe and economic crisis. Never before have we been so badly in need of a reconsideration of our cultural values and consumption from an architectural perspective.

With Atlas of Another America, Keith Krumwiede has written a bold and highly original work of speculative architectural fiction that calls on Americans--and, increasingly, the rest of the world--to seriously reconsider the concept of the single-family home. Krumwiede's "Freedomland" is a fictional utopia of communal superhomes constructed from the remains of the suburban metropolis. Eschewing formal innovation for its own sake, Freedomland's radical architects rely on artful appropriation and the reorganization of found forms. Krumwiede produces the complete plans for Freedomland in the style of a historical architectural treatise, supplemented with more than two hundred plans and drawings and five essays that draw on a long lineage of architectural thought--from Piranesi to Ledoux, Branzi, and Koolhaas. Among the essays, "Atypical Plans" is a redaction of Koolhaas's landmark text "Typical Plan," "Supermodel Homes" looks at the mad genius of developer David Weekley," and "New Homes for America" is a short story in which a young architect produces new forms of communal living.

About the Author: Keith Krumwiede is a writer and designer and is currently a visiting associate professor in the department of architecture at the University of California at Berkeley. He is the winner of the 2017-2018 Arnold W. Brunner / Katherine Edwards Gordon Rome Prize in Architecture.

Book Description Titel Park Books, 2016. Gebundene Ausgabe. Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Sehr gut SG - leichte Beschädigungen oder Verschmutzungen, ungelesenes Mängelexemplar, gestempelt, Versand Büchersendung - In Form einer spekulativen Architekturerzählung und in theoretischen Analysen umkreist der Designer Keith Krumwiede das Erfolgssymbol der amerikanischen Mittelschicht schlechthin: das für den Massengeschmack produzierte Vorstadthaus. Dabei orientiert er sich an architekturgeschichtlichen Beispielen wie den Schriften Piranesis oder Ledoux mit ihren fiktionalen und zugleich realistischen Bauwelten.Der Atlas of Another America übernimmt Tonfall und Format historischer Architekturabhandlungen. Krumwiede entwirft eine gezeichnete Utopie sogenannter 'Superhomes' und reflektiert über die Gründe des amerikanischen Hausbauwahns sowie über dessen ökonomische und ökologische Konsequenzen. Er porträtiert die Firmenphilosophie des irren Genies David Weekley, einem der erfolgreichsten amerikanischen Hausbauer, und schliesst mit einer satirischen Kurzgeschichte über die alptraumhafte Entwicklung von monströsen Wohnsiedlungen voller Einfamilienhäuser. Krumwiede übertreibt und erfindet, stützt sich aber auf reale Hausformen. So stellt er das Thema 'Einfamilienhaus' in einen breiten, auch Europa betreffenden architektonischen Diskurs. 256 pp. Englisch. Seller Inventory # INF1000418332
