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.

Описание: Views of the Edwardian era have swung between seeing the period as a golden summer afternoon of imperial and elite complacency and the starkly conflicting depiction of the decade as one of intense political, economic, and artistic instability leading up to the chasm of the First World War. This magnificent book explores themes of power and a contrasting lightness of touch through the distinctive architecture, interiors, and decorative and fine arts of the time. Creation, consumption, and display are enlightened through portraits by Sargent and Boldoni, diamond tiaras and ostrich feather fans, and a spectacular embroidered gown belonging to Mary, the American-born wife of Lord Curzon, Viceroy of India. At the same time, the Lumiere brothers' invention of autochromes enabled informal colour portrait photography that fostered the cult of celebrity. Opulence and leisure were driving forces for the domestic and imperial British economic engine in the early years of the twentieth century.

Описание: With Edward VII on the throne and the dawn of a new century, Britain embraced the technology of the future. Motor transport began to replace the horse, and by the end of the Edwardian era, the possibilities of the aeroplane could be seen. While the telephone was for business communication, the popular craze was to send picture postcards, especially from the seaside. In the home, vacuum cleaners were the latest innovation, while in the streets women protested for their rights. Ping Pong was the fashionable parlour game for adults, whilst the teddy bear quickly became the cuddly companion for children. Like the other vibrant titles in the series, The Edwardian Scrapbook offers a glimpse at what used to be using Robert Opie's unrivalled collection of ephemera and packaging. It adds to our knowledge of the recent past and is a treasure-trove of information and nostalgia.

Описание: The book presents outstanding hand drawings of German architects from various areas of architecture and design. The focus of the presentation is on the individual manuscripts of the architects and designers. For some time now, many architects and designer are returning to manually drawn depictions of their designs despite the fact that the latest computer-aided visualization techniques allow the creation of almost perfect illusions of planned build-ings. However, they often lack in conveying life and atmosphere to the building resulting in a feeling of coldness and distance from the observer. Beyond the pure conveying of information through a mechanical drawing, the various techniques of manual drawing can convey individual sentiments and impressions. The result is a larger degree of authenticity coupled with an emphasis of the human dimen-sion of architecture
