Architecture Now! 9 includes works in Amsterdam or Inner Mongolia by architects as famous as Zaha Hadid and Jean Nouvel, or as little known to the general public as Carla Juacaba from Brazil. Small ephemeral buildings like the BMW Guggenheim Lab by Atelier Bow-Wow are included, as well as houses, movie theaters, fashion boutiques, and even an Opera Village in Burkina Faso. Wine and dine with Pritkzer Prize winner Thom Mayne of Morphosis; climb to the top of the Orbit, symbol of the 2012 London Olympics by artist Anish Kapoor and engineer Cecil Balmond; travel "Beyond Infinity" in a virtual environment created in Shanghai by French designer and artist Serge Salat. This is architecure. Now. About the series: For anyone interested in the zeitgeist and building design in the 21st century, the Architecture Now! series is an essential work of reference. Easy-to-navigate illustrated A-Z entries include current and recent projects, biographies, contact information, and websites.

Описание: This lavishly illustrated monograph published to accompany Frances first major retrospective since the photographers death in 2004 traces Cartier-Bressons development as a photographer, activist, journalist and artist. In addition to some of Cartier-Bressons best-known photographs, included here are many seldom seen or unpublished images and some rarities in colour as well as black-and-white. From his earliest photographs in Paris in the 1920s and Africa in the 1930s, Cartier-Bressons capacity to conjure coherence and harmony out of a chaotic world appears effortless and innate a deep-centred attitude rather than a merely learned technique. His observations of the effects of poverty and revolution around the world led directly to his pioneering photojournalism and to his co-founding of Magnum Photos. He became renowned for his penetrating portraits of the most prominent figures of his time, becoming, in the words of his biographer Pierre Assouline, the eye of the century.

Описание: Turning the world green. The architecture of the great outdoors. One of the hottest areas of contemporary design is clearly landscape architecture. No matter what the architectural style of the moment, the green areas around houses, stadiums or corporate headquarters have taken on a considerable importance, all the more so with the emphasis on ecology and green design. This book calls on the work of the top designers of the moment, from Ken Smith, author of the "Museum of Modern Art's" rooftop garden to West8 from Rotterdam, but also on architects ranging from Foreign Office to Tadao Ando who have long been fascinated by the environments of their buildings. There are new names like the Lebanese landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic and well-known ones like Martha Schwartz. There are established firms like the Wirtz family from Belgium or Gustafson Porter from the United States and young creators like Sophie Agata Ambroise from Lugano. The limit between architecture and landscape architecture is not always easy to define, but this new book opens the doors and windows of today's architecture into the gardens of tomorrow. Featured architects and practices include: AECOM, Tadao Ando, Balmori Associates, Patrick Blanc, Caffarena, Cobos et al, Cervino Lopez, Vladimir Djurovic, DSR, Peter Eisenman, EMBT, James Corner Field, Glavovic Studio, Carrilho da Graca, Gustaffson Guthrie, Gustaffson Porter, Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Steven Holl, Martin Hurtado, Raymond Jungles, Maya Lin, LRO, Giovanni Maciocco, Michael Maltzan, Mecanoo, Fernando Menis, Eduardo de Miguel, Catherine Mosbach, Sotoji Nakamura, Victor Neves, NGBM, Nieto Sobejano, Officina del Paesaggio, Okra, John Pawson, Renzo Piano, Palerm Tabares, Masuno Shunmyo, Ken Smith, Taylor Cullity Lethlean, Michael van Valkenburgh, Weiss Manfredi, West8, and Wirtz International, Work AC.
