Описание: Over the past decade, China’s new generation of young female architects have proven themselves to be talented, confident, innovative and successful on the world stage. Engaging with traditions and international trends, as well as posing entirely new architectural ideas, their projects reveal China to be a place brimming with energy and creative possibility.
This survey of twenty of China’s latest generation features detailed profiles of each architect, exploring their routes to success, their inspirations and the challenges posed for those working and designing in this diverse and rapidly evolving region. Each profile includes works from small-scale conceptual plans to country houses, schools, offices and large-scale urban development projects. From exploring new ways to build with radical, sustainable materials to sensitively honouring the vernacular traditions of the country’s long and complex history, each architect brings her unique vision to the question of what architecture means in China today. Zhang Xin, one of the country’s most successful women entrepreneurs, puts these achievements in context.
The most densely populated country on earth, China is metamorphosizing from a mainly rural to an urbanized economy faster than any nation has done so before. Responding to real social and political changes, the architects featured here will define China’s skylines for many years to come.

Описание: The Northern art of life has become a role model for a meaningful work-life balance. Entrepreneurs, designers, and artists are the central figures who influence every- thing from crime fiction to interior design and furniture, to outdoors activities and attitudes toward nature, to craft beer and fashion. Nordic countries have almost closed the gender gap to achieve equal numbers of men and women in education and the economy. Living in the Nordic countries guarantees a good life, way beyond the con- cepts of lagom and hygge. Nothern Comfort shows where this way of life comes from, profiling interior designers, photographers, and experts to give compelling insights into the "happiest people in the world."

Описание: James and Annetta White opened the Broken Spoke in 1964, then a mile south of the Austin city limits, under a massive live oak, and beside what would eventually become South Lamar Boulevard. White built the place himself, beginning construction on the day he received his honorable discharge from the US Army. And for more than fifty years, the Broken Spoke has served up, in the words of White’s well-worn opening speech, “. . . cold beer, good whiskey, the best chicken fried steak in town . . . and good country music.” White paid thirty-two dollars to his first opening act, D. G. Burrow and the Western Melodies, back in 1964. Since then, the stage at the Spoke has hosted the likes of Bob Wills, Dolly Parton, Ernest Tubb, Ray Price, Marcia Ball, Pauline Reese, Roy Acuff, Kris Kristofferson, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Asleep at the Wheel, and the late, great Kitty Wells. But it hasn’t always been easy; through the years, the Whites and the Spoke have withstood their share of hardship—a breast cancer diagnosis, heart trouble, the building’s leaky roof, and a tour bus driven through its back wall. Today the original rustic, barn-style building, surrounded by sleek, high-rise apartment buildings, still sits on South Lamar, a tribute and remembrance to an Austin that has almost vanished. Housing fifty years of country music memorabilia and about a thousand lifetimes of memories at the Broken Spoke, the Whites still honor a promise made to Ernest Tubb years ago: they’re “keepin’ it country.”

Описание: In what may seem as comparative religious studies, this work intends to undertake theological investigations in contemporary Black Africa with the Igbo tribe of south-east Nigeria as a case-study. This theological investigations are based on J.L. Austin’s concept of performative word, and to be analyzed in the context of sacramental theology and the Igbo traditional religion, and then to give this concept a pastoral relevance in such a way that the use of Igbo word would be performative in evangelization among the Igbo themselves.
