The Arcades Project
Critiquing the arcades of nineteenth-century Paris--glass-roofed rows of shops that served as early malls--the author, who wrote the work in the 1920s and 1930s, covers thirty-six still-trenchant topics, including fashion, boredom, photography, advertising, and prostitution, among others.
A Topology of Everyday Constellations
Today, spaces no longer represent a bourgeois haven; nor are they the sites of a classical harmony between work and leisure, private and public, the local and the global. The house is not merely a home but a position for negotiations with multiple spheres -- the technological as well as the physical and the psychological. In A Topology of Everyday Constellations, Georges Teyssot considers the intrusion of the public sphere into private space, and the blurring of notions of interior, privacy, and intimacy in our societies. He proposes that we rethink design in terms of a new definition of the practices of everyday life. Teyssot considers the door, the window, the mirror, and the screen as thresholds or interstitial spaces that divide the world in two: the outside and the inside. Thresholds, he suggests, work both as markers of boundaries and as bridges to the exterior. The stark choice between boundary and bridge creates a middle space, an in-between that holds the possibility of exchanges and encounters. If the threshold no longer separates public from private, and if we can no longer think of the house as a bastion of privacy, Teyssot asks, does the body still inhabit the house -- or does the house, evolving into a series of microdevices, inhabit the body?
Fundamentals of urban design
This book explains the fundamental tools for achieving a more cohesive and satisfying environment. Using more than 100 photographs and drawings, Hedman illustrates the basic components of urban design. A great book for teaching planning students about urban design and a helpful tool for introducing citizens to the importance of good design. The book is essential reading for planners, city managers, and other public administrators who need to understand design principles to defend their commuinities against well-intentioned-even attractive-but nevertheless damaging projects.
Architectural Lighting, the latest addition to the Architecture Briefs series, provides both a critical approach to and a conceptual framework for understanding the application of lighting in the built environment. The key considerations of lighting design are illuminated through accessible texts and instructional diagrams. Six built projects provide readers with concrete examples of the ways in which these principles are applied. Short essays by architect Steven Holl, artist Sylvain Dubuisson, and landscape architect James Corner explore the role of lighting in defining spatial compositions.
Radical Pedagogies Architectural Education and the British Tradition
The anticipated reduction in the duration of architecture education in the UK and across Europe has encouraged a sense of collective openness towards exploring other models of professional education delivery. There's never been a better time to be thoughtfully innovative and take the initiative. This book provides a much needed debate about the future of architectural education, placing it within its unique historic tradition and raising fundamental questions such as who should be teaching architecture? Where should they be situated and should it be viewed as an interdisciplinary, rather than silo-based subject? Featuring voices as varied as digital strategists, students and client managers, Radical Pedagogies consolidates academic and well as practice-based evidence into a set of actionable insights, aimed at empowering schools, educators, and students alike.
A contemporary artist uses ordinary human interactions to create thought-provoking art.
