Описание: At the foot of the snow-capped Cascade Mountains on the forested shores of Puget Sound, Seattle is set in a location of spectacular natural beauty. Advocates for the city have long capitalized on this splendour, recently likening it to the fairytale capital of L. Frank Baums The Wizard of Oz, the Emerald City.

But just as Dorothy, Toto, and their travelling companions discover a darker reality upon entering the green gates of the imaginary Emerald City, those who look more closely at Seattles landscape will find that it reveals a history marked by environmental degradation and urban inequality. This book explores the role of nature in the development of the city of Seattle from the earliest days of its settlement to the present. Combining environmental history, urban history, and human geography, Matthew Klingle shows how attempts to reshape nature in and around Seattle have often ended not only in ecological disaster but also social inequality.

The price of Seattles centuries of growth and progress has been paid by its wildlife, including the famous Pacific salmon, and its poorest residents. Klingle proposes a bold new way of understanding the interdependence between nature and culture, and he argues for what he calls an ethic of place. Using Seattle as a compelling case study, he offers important insights for every city seeking to live in harmony with its natural landscape.

Описание: A follow-up to the successful series Rooms to Inspire, this inspirational design guide presents a selection of novel urban interiors by the leading interior designers of our time. City living evokes cosmopolitan sophistication and artistic expression. This presentation of trend-setting ways to design residences by leading tastemakers such as Muriel Brandolini, Peter Dunham, Jonathan Adler, and Mary McDonald, shows an impressive mix of styles—from eclectic and exotic to neo-traditional. The variety of beautifully photographed dwellings—from townhouses and apartments to lofts in such vibrant locales as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, London, and Jakarta—were chosen for their fresh design perspectives. This inspiring medley ranges from Carolina Irving’s Upper East Side–chic New York apartment with custom molding influenced by Gothic architecture to Robert Couturier’s elegant residence with curved walls, decorated by Paulin Paris. Universal design issues fundamental to living quarters are addressed, including color and comfort, as well as innovative approaches to tight spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms. Sections devoted to bookshelves, home entertaining, and tabletop display, along with a useful resource list, complete this guide to city style. For professionals and novices alike, Rooms to Inspire in the City encourages us to decorate our urban living spaces with panache.

Giorgio de Chirico and the Metaphysical City

Описание: Painted in Paris on the eve of World War One, the Metaphysical cityscapes of Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978) redirected the course of modernist painting and the modern architectural imagination alike. Giorgio de Chirico and the Metaphysical City examines the two most salient dimensions of the artist’s early imagery: its representations of architectural space and its sustained engagement with the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche. Centering upon a single painting from 1914 – deemed by the painter 'the fatal year' – each chapter examines why and how de Chirico’s self-declared 'Nietzschean method' takes architecture as its pictorial means and metaphor. The first, full-length study in English to focus on the painter’s seminal work from pre-war Paris, the book places de Chirico’s 'literary' images back in the context of the city’s avant-garde, particularly the circle of Guillaume Apollinaire. Merjian’s study sheds light on one of the most influential and least understood figures in 20th-century aesthetics, while also contributing to an understanding of Nietzsche’s paradoxical consequences for modernism.

Описание: A visual account of the birth of graffiti and street art, showcasing as-yet-unseen works collected by preeminent artist Martin Wong. Referred to by the New York Times as an artist "whose meticulous visionary realism is among the lasting legacies of New York’s East Village art scene of the 1980s," Martin Wong (1946–1999) was firmly entrenched in the NYC street art world of the late ’70s and ’80s. City as Canvas chronicles the most important chapter in the street art movement and the artists involved. Showcasing Wong’s enormous graffiti art collection, the book contains artwork, photographs, black books, letters, postcards, posters, and flyers made by Wong and his artist friends. The book contains previously unpublished art by famous street artists such as Futura 2000, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Christopher "Daze" Ellis, LA II, Lady Pink, and Keith Haring, to name only a few. City as Canvas traces the origins of urban self-expression and the era of "outlaw" street art in New York, which primed the floodgates for graffiti art to spread worldwide.

Описание: Migration from the countryside to cities is a global phenomenon, placing increased population and transport pressures on cities around the world. And yet there are precious few great transit developments, little variety in the ones we do have, only rare examples of development profitability, and consequently, minimal motivation for our industry and our communities. Urban Transformation is really about providing the critical inspiration to change this situation. It is about restocking our weak architectural portfolio of transit facilities with dynamic new models. It is about recognizing the potential value and longevity of these projects, and making them exceptional rather than forgettable. The powerful cases in this book remove the excuses for mediocrity and mundane functionality, and show us how to excel. The text introduces an understandable typology of development around transit, and uses that to illustrate different strategies and design techniques. There is a broad range and scale of projects represented—large and small, domestic and global, big markets and modest communities—and each an excellent example of what can be realized.

This pocket-sized volume collects incredible bird's-eye views of Tokyo's bustling cityscape, shot using a tilt-shift photography technique that has the effect of seeming to shrink its subject--making one of the vastest cities in the world look like a miniature model. Epic skyscrapers, crowded city streets and even sumo wrestling matches shrink to the scale of tiny plastic toys in this one-of-a-kind impulse book.

Описание: As synthetic materials, mutant and hybrid concoctions attain prominence in our daily lives - in our handheld devices, cooking utensils, vehicles, even things as simple as our shopping bags - the design and construction industries have instead reembraced the familiar, the conventional - wood, which has regained prominence through innovations in engineering and construction methodologies. Technology is now commonly used and often (though not always) affordably used - to cut, perforate, assemble, erect, and even fabricate materials in a manner not previously possible. Wood is one such material, and Timber in the City documents both the imaginings of those in the nascence of their education and practice and the executed work of design professionals at the leading edge of architecture. These designers, regardless of the duration of their immersion in the field, have imaginatively rethought the means by which we build and the methods by which we define space merely through differing deployments of a familiar building material.
