Описание: The geographic region around the North Pole is a raw and exotic area of untouched nature and inescapable beauty. Unique among the Earth's ecosystems, it includes both a vast, ice-covered ocean and a treeless region of tundra. Building in this extremely cold climate requires an advanced degree of ingenuity and resolve. Ecological conditions including high winds, snowdrifts, and permafrost, combined with periods of little or no sunlight, present seemingly impossible logistical hurdles. Recent years have witnessed an explosion of resident and invited architects creating buildings above 60 degrees latitude. The time has come for a new definition of a northern building-one that is both extraordinarily responsive to place and aesthetically provocative. In Modern North, author Julie Decker presents thirty-four of the most compelling and far-ranging possibilities of contemporary architecture in the North. These buildings-located in northern Canada, Scandinavia, and Alaska-are united in the way they embrace extreme conditions. Rather than shut them out, these conditions are welcomed and often formed into the buildings' structures and materials, as in the way architecture is employed to mediate the harshness of the low-lying sun without replacing it with the harshness of artificial lights. The architects of Modern North exploit the natural topography to provide visual stimulation in places that sometimes offer little more than a whitescape. Modern North includes innovative institutional and residential structures by both established and up-and-coming architects, including a-lab, David Chipperfield, Jarmund/Vigsnaes, Studio Granda, Shim-Sutcliffe, and Snohetta. Essays by Brian Carter, Juhani Pallasmaa, Edwin Crittenden, and Lisa Rochon place the projects in the context of a new architectural response to the North.

Описание: Whether a house is in the city, out in the country, or near the water, the presence of a patio, a porch or a veranda can provide an important connection
between the interior realm of a home and the external context of a residence. Depending on the location, a porch can serve different functions. In the city, it is a refuge from the loud,
hectic traffic; in the countryside, it serves as a platform from which to admire the landscape.
These spaces, at the border between interior and exterior, can also be used as
outdoor dining rooms and sitting rooms, play rooms, or just intermediate ambiences where one can relax and enjoy the surroundings. This volume gathers a selection of international
examples of patios, porches, and verandas where the reader will find inspirational design ideas and tips to make the most out of these spaces. Special attention to furniture and plants
will help to create great projects.
