Описание: An exploration of art deco architectural design, embracing many different times and places in its summary of the movement`s origins, development and influence. Various types of architecture, the author explains, were termed art deco, and their antecedents were mixed and often surprising.
Описание: The architecture of the last several decades was shaped by the need for individual representation and demarcation. Today, a growing countermovement is focusing on the development of public space as a means to get people together in order to exchange ideas or share experiences. Going Public presents a compelling international selection of extraordinary current architectural projects in public space. Their objectives are as diverse as the structures themselves and range from providing recreational or cultural opportunities to facilitating social interaction. As the industrial age has evolved into the information age, our cities have developed new potential. In the past, churches and marketplaces were the focus of our social lives. Today, however, different types of community centers are being established. In addition to the transformation of existing public squares, parks, and pavilions, original projects such as community gardens, outdoor movie theaters, temporary installations, and other cultural venues are being built. Thus, in the hearts of our cities but also on their peripheries a new kind of public space is being defined. Innovative solutions are even being found for ubiquitous features of urban life such as benches, bicycle racks, and bus stops. Going Public also showcases work that leads us out of our cities and into the countryside. Contemporary versions of hideouts, observation towers, viewing platforms, and self-guided trails use public space differently than their more traditional counterparts and expand our possibilities for experiencing our natural surroundings and landscapes. The architecture featured in Going Public may range from bold to subtle, but all of it is innovative and surprising.

Описание: After the success of Architectural Visions, with its focus on the German speaking countries, this volume is devoted to the individual handwriting of architects and designers from around the world. As computer aided design becomes ever more prevalent, the handmade drawing is experiencing an amazing Renaissance. In its characteristic touch it often shows much more clearly which aesthetic impression the planned building finally leaves behind than any number of computer aided visualisation techniques. What is striking here is the concentration on the main characteristics of the buildings, which in turn mark the appearance. In contrast, in the rendering, the love of detail and alleged approximation of reality often overshadows those characteristics. This volume unifies the most varied painting and drawing techniques, counterposing realized drafts to photos of the execution, so that the viewers can recreate for themselves the connection between architectural will and effect.
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: Since opening its doors in 1930, the British Ambassadors Residence has been considered the premier diplomatic address in Washington, D.C. A cross between an English country house and a neo- Palladian plantation, the Residence is a compelling but often overlooked example of the work of architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. His only building in the United States, its majestic interiors and gardens in the English style have been making their mark on Washingtons social and political elite for over eighty years. In this book Anthony Seldon and Daniel Collings explore both the genius of Lutyens design and the rich history of Anglo-American relations that has unfolded within its walls. Through significant world events, and the skill of successive ambassadors, this building became the forum that helped forge and then embody the special relationship between the two countries. From Winston Churchills rambunctious visits during the Second World War, to the dark days of Vietnam, and the rejuvenation of the relationship during the Thatcher/Reagan period, this book takes the reader deep behind the scenes. The end result is an intimate and fascinating history, featuring previously untold stories about visiting royalty, Presidents, Prime Ministers, and even the Beatles.
