Описание: Modernism crashed into the American consciousness right after the Second World War, although it had existed in the minds and works of American and German-born architects for almost 40 years prior. While it offered a new design paradigm that would transform the urban landscape from New York to New Delhi, modernism was a slow burn for residential architects. The sharp edges and simple geometries were a hard sell for the American design psyche. A group of innovative architects in the USA took Bauhaus modernism and gave it a vernacular face. They borrowed forms from the simple utilitarian buildings found in rural environments and created a new strain of modernism. Russell Abraham dubs this style 'rural modernism' - a modern aesthetic with a vernacular palette. The result of several ingenious ideas blended together to create a contemporary, sustainable and highly liveable architecture, these houses respect the past while looking forward to the future. Orienting windows to capture heat in winter and provide sun protection in summer is standard, while other sustainable design features include solar-thermal systems, subterranean heat sinks, geothermal trenches and rainwater collection systems -all of which are incorporated to make the most of the natural resources available in rural settings.

This new hardback coffee-table book on courtyards will also be the latest volume in IMAGES' sought-after '21st Century Architecture' series.

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.

Описание: Paul Farren claims he and his wife Charlie have around 85 percent of the pre-1900 bicycles in Australia - all under one roof in a Melbourne warehouse-cum-museum. Thirty years of hunting them down and collecting has resulted in one of the most impressive early bike collections in the world. It includes 160 pre-1900 bicycles, including hobby horses, boneshakers and Penny Farthings, as well as early 20th-century models. The collection charts the development of the bicycle, which foreshadows the invention of the motor car in many surprising ways. It also shows wider social change and the role the bicycle has played in female emancipation, war and its progression from plaything of the wealthy to utilitarian mode of transport of the masses. Features full-colour images of the finest bikes in the collection, together with informative text and entertaining anecdotes about how the collection came together.
