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.
Описание: This book is the result of pioneering research work at the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM, German Museum of Architecture) in Frankfurt-on-the-Main. Investigated is the architectural model as distinct means and method of creating and presenting architecture or architectural ideas and concepts, rather than the model merely representing a specific building e.g. as part of an architect's oeuvre. While architectural photography and drawing has been subject of countless exhibitions and publications, no comparable research on the architectural model has been done so far. This book coincides with an exhibition at the DAM in summer 2012. The authors and curators have drawn from the museum's own vast collection of models created by over 400 architects from 25 countries. The book presents 100 models, featuring works of renowned architects such as Norman Foster, Arata Isozaki, Louis I. Kahn, Rem Koolhaas, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Frei Otto, Aldo Rossi, Skidmore Owings & Merrill and James Stirling. The images are complemented by detailed descriptions of each item and by comprehensive essays on the results of the entire research project.
Автор: Aslet Clive Название: The Edwardian Country House: A Social and Architectural History ISBN: 071123339X ISBN-13(EAN): 9780711233393 Издательство: Frances Lincoln Цена: 3621 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: The magnificent country houses built in Britain between 1890 and 1939 were the last monuments to a vanishing age. Many of these great mammoths of domestic architecture were unsuited to the changes in economic and social priorities that followed the two world wars, and rapidly became extinct. Those that survive, however, provide tangible evidence of the life and death of an extraordinarily prosperous age.
Originally published in 1980, long out of print and now thoroughly revised and reillustrated, this book recounts the architectural and social history of the era, describing the clients, the architects, the styles and accoutrements of the country houses. The people who could afford them - the Carnegies, the Astors, the Leverhulmes - had grown rich by exploiting the new economic opportunities of the age, and the houses they built in the years before the First World War reflect the desire for two contrasting ways of life. The social country house was the setting for the opulent world associated with Edward VII. The romantic country house was simpler, more genuinely rural, for those who wanted to be in closer contact with the countryside and the vanishing rural crafts, or who wanted an idyll of the past that did not suggest the world of the motor car. These traditions lost coherence after the war, and the period ended with a number of spectacular, and often eccentric, houses. Some of the most remarkable were those that not only replicated the look of old buildings, but used genuinely old materials and even incorporated whole Tudor buildings moved from other places.
Clive Aslet writes of the immense changes in the way country houses of this period were lived in and used. The shortage of servants, aggravated by the First World War, spurred numerous developments in the technology of the country house - vacuum cleaners, washing machines, telephones and central heating were called upon to replace the army of servants who never returned from the trenches or the factories. Interior decorators, becoming increasingly in vogue, developed the style Louis Seize into the last word in Edwardian chic. Gardens came to be seen as integral to the concept of the country house and reconciled formal planning with informal planting.
This fascinating world, so popularly depicted in Downton Abbey, can now be viewed from a new perspective. The Edwardian Country House will enlighten and entertain all those interested in glimpsing the lost life style of another age.
