Описание: The architecture of the last several decades was shaped by the need for individual representation and demarcation. Today, a growing countermovement is focusing on the development of public space as a means to get people together in order to exchange ideas or share experiences. Going Public presents a compelling international selection of extraordinary current architectural projects in public space. Their objectives are as diverse as the structures themselves and range from providing recreational or cultural opportunities to facilitating social interaction. As the industrial age has evolved into the information age, our cities have developed new potential. In the past, churches and marketplaces were the focus of our social lives. Today, however, different types of community centers are being established. In addition to the transformation of existing public squares, parks, and pavilions, original projects such as community gardens, outdoor movie theaters, temporary installations, and other cultural venues are being built. Thus, in the hearts of our cities but also on their peripheries a new kind of public space is being defined. Innovative solutions are even being found for ubiquitous features of urban life such as benches, bicycle racks, and bus stops. Going Public also showcases work that leads us out of our cities and into the countryside. Contemporary versions of hideouts, observation towers, viewing platforms, and self-guided trails use public space differently than their more traditional counterparts and expand our possibilities for experiencing our natural surroundings and landscapes. The architecture featured in Going Public may range from bold to subtle, but all of it is innovative and surprising.

Описание: Following the success of IMAGES' bestselling title 'Courtyards for Modern Living' which featured modern courtyard designs from Australia and New Zealand, we decided to expand on this popular concept by compiling a new book with a more global focus. 'Alfresco Living' will feature 50 stunning courtyard and terrace designs from around the world. This new hardback coffee-table book on courtyards will also be the latest volume in IMAGES' sought-after '21st Century Architecture' series. It will feature a diverse and inspiring collection of residential courtyard gardens and terraces, both external and internal. These are outdoor spaces that have been thoughtfully designed as extensions of everyday living spaces in order to maximise their use and aesthetic benefits year-round. The projects cover a broad range of styles, sizes and budgets. There are courtyards built around feature trees, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits and outdoor kitchens and lounges. Also featured are beautiful interior courtyards resembling oversized terrariums, which act as light wells and provide natural cross ventilation, creating a tranquil atmosphere inside. There is also a focus on courtyards where water takes centre stage, in the form of ponds, plunge pools, lap pools, fountains and other water features. Also included are courtyards with innovative shading devices to mitigate harsh sunlight, as well as sustainable garden designs and drought-tolerant plantings. The project locations range from Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand to North and South America.

Описание: Now available again in a stunning new format, this generously illustrated book for lovers of photography includes 365 images from the greatest photojournalists of today and yesterday.
Founded by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Magnum Photos is the iconic international photographic cooperative whose members have captured the major historical events of their times, as well as private and intimate moments. A year’s worth of these images is offered in this visually stunning book that features full page reproductions organized to reflect what Cartier-Bresson himself declared a “community of thought, a shared human quality, a curiosity about what is going on in the world, a respect for what is going on and a desire to transcribe it visually.” Nearly 70 photographers are represented with five to six images each, and the current Magnum members have selected the photographs that they consider to best represent their own output. Running more than 700 pages, this book includes images that make history both individual and universal.
Описание: The cities in which we live today are unfortunately not the cities that we need for a humane and sustainable tomorrow. Societies and politicians are desperately looking for solutions and ideas for the urban areas of the future. That is why the development and discussion of utopias are next to sustainability the most current topics in contemporary architecture. We have learned from the 1960s and 1970s that utopian visions are one of the most important catalysts for fundamental change. Modern wind farms for generating energy, for example, were initially contemplated at that time and are now permanent fixtures in our landscapes.
Utopia Forever is a collection of current projects and concepts from architecture, city planning, urbanism, and art that point beyond the restrictions of the factual to unleash the potential of creative visions. In contrast to the largely ideal-theoretic approaches of the past, today s utopias take the necessity for societal changes into account. The projects in this book explore how current challenges for architecture, mobility, and energy as well as the logistics of food consumption and waste removal can be met. Whether created by established architects and artists or new talents, the projects in Utopia Forever are radically shaping our notions of life in the future.
