with its economic development and cultural history. Elegantly designed and lavishly produced, "America and the Sea" offers intriguing new evidence of the indisputable relevance of
maritime history to American life and art.
Описание: The ecologically inspired planning and innovative architecture created at The Sea Ranch in the mid-1960s caused a quiet revolution in architecture. When the region, a former sheep ranch and lumbering area, was rediscovered for its beauty in the 1960s, it was radically developed as a community that would exist in harmony with its environment. This revised and updated edition of the now-classic monograph contains ten additional projects without sacrificing any of the originally included, lavishly illustrated work. New projects include work by many of the same renowned architects. Also including an updated account of the ongoing development process and land management issues, the revision proves the continued relevance of The Sea Ranch as it enters its fiftieth year--and this monograph remains its definitive portrait.

Over the past decade the renowned photographer Robert Adams (b. 1937) has turned his attention to the woods and shores near his home on the Oregon coast. "Sea Stories" is a sequence of three visual narratives that follow Adams and his wife, Kerstin, as they walk among alder and maple trees, along the beach to observe the annual migration of shorebirds, and back eastward through meadows and what remains of the inland forest. Featuring many previously unpublished photographs, this book describes the cycles of nature with a new naturalism.

Описание: On April 16, 2007, an early spring storm broke through Cape Cods barrier beach. Overnight, the citizens of Chatham had to contend with as much sea level rise as most communities will face in the next fifty years. A dozen homes were swept away in as many months and, today, a new inlet is aimed at the heart of the village. Another hundred houses and the third most lucrative fishing port in New England will be endangered in the coming years. Bill Sargent tells the story of this seemingly microcosmic event, but it is not unique. Nearly 200 other American coastal communities will face similar problems as their barrier beaches break down over the next twenty years. Sea Level Rising is a clarion call for coastal communities to prepare for the chronic effects of global warming. Most importantly, it puts a human face on global warming, arguably the gravest threat to ever face human civilization.
