Open Enclosed: Donald Judd

Guillermo Zuaznabar

Open Enclosed: Donald Judd by Guillermo ZuaznabarTaking "Specific Objects," the seminal text written by Judd in the mid-sixties, as the central theme, the author analyzes the artist's main concepts and his whole career from a new perspective: "what one seeks is an object that speaks of the world in which it is moving or of the world from which it is moving away. One searches for a boundary work, a frontier, that says, simultaneously, where it is coming from and where it is going, a work in which interests overlap. A work that will function as a mark or a crossroads, locating this work is the first exercise.

Total Housing: Alternatives to Urban Sprawl

Ferre Albert

Total Housing: Alternatives to Urban Sprawl by Ferre AlbertThis book is conceived as evidence supporting the qualities of dense, urban living, and as a hopeful antidote against sprawl. Necessity and investigation are prerequisites for the design of housing: Total Housing refers to the need to understand that social, environmental, and economic factors affect form, and that living space is a base for our increasingly complex and varied societies. This new survey into multi-family housing focuses on the responses proposed by architects who are dealing with the dynamic and diverse demands of contemporary society. Featuring works by Lacaton - Vassal, BIG,...

Craig Ward

Popular Lies about Graphic Design by Craig WardMulti award-winning designer, typographer and TED speaker, Craig Ward, presents his first self-authored book - Popular Lies About Graphic Design.

and urgent briefs, alongside discussions on more worthy topics such as the validity of design education, the supposed death of print,...

The Sniper's Log: Architectural Chronicles of Generation-X

Alejandro Zaera-Polo

The Sniper's Log: Architectural Chronicles of Generation-X by Alejandro Zaera-PoloThe book is like a sniper's log, a register of events for the purpose of accumulating experience for future missions, be it academic or professional, trying to identify tendencies and to assess performances, rather than to establish truth. Written for different media and formats (professional magazines, speaking engagements, academic presentations...), the texts are thread together as part of a biographical experience that reveals that theory is here primarily instrumental and seeks efficiency rather than truth. We do not theorise because we want to understand the deep truths of the world, but...

Experiments with Life Itself: Radical Domestic Architectures Between 1937 and 1959

Francisco Gonzalez de Canales

Experiments with Life Itself: Radical Domestic Architectures Between 1937 and 1959 by Francisco Gonzalez de CanalesEvery book relating the history of modern architecture features a large number of pages dedicated to avant-garde designs and the formation of the modern movement in the interwar years, and a similar number devoted to reconstruction and expansion after the Second World War. Meanwhile, as if owing to lack of understanding or convenient silence, there is void of dark years, of wars, exile and misfortune about which little can be said. However, it was in these dark times, as in so many other revealing moments in the history of culture, that experimental and profoundly invigorating experiences were...

Geographies of Trash

Rania Ghosn & El Hadi Jazairy

Geographies of Trash by Rania Ghosn & El Hadi JazairyIn the Age of Environment, the scale of waste management is geographic all while often relegating such undesired matter to invisibility as "matter out of place." Geographies of Trash reclaims the role of forms, technologies, economies and logistics of the waste system in the production of new aesthetics and politics of urbanism. Honored with a 2014 ACSA Faculty Design Award, the book charts the geographies of trash in Michigan across scales to propose five speculative projects that bring to visibility disciplinary controversies on the relations of technology, space and politics.

Treacherous Transparencies: Thoughts and Observations Triggered by a Visit to Farnsworth House

Jacques Herzog & Pierre de Meuron

Treacherous Transparencies: Thoughts and Observations Triggered by a Visit to Farnsworth House by Jacques Herzog & Pierre de MeuronTreacherous Transparencies analyzes transparency as expressed in architecture and art in an attempt to understand the intentions and objectives that underlie its use by pertinent architects and artists.

The publication looks at a few important works by selected artists and architects who work with transparency as an artistic strategy, which they implement primarily by using glass and mirrors but other media as well. The architects and artists listed together in this context form an unlikely alliance: Bruno Taut, Ivan Leonidov, Marcel Duchamp, Mies van der Rohe, Dan Graham, and Gerhard Richter....
