Melancholy and the Landscape: Locating Sadness, Memory and Reflection in the Landscape

Melancholy and the Landscape: Locating Sadness, Memory and Reflection in the Landscape by Jacky Bowring

Written as an advocacy of melancholy's value as part of landscape experience, this book situates the concept within landscape's aesthetic traditions, and reveals how it is a critical part of ethics and empathy. With a history that extends back to ancient times, melancholy has hovered at the edges of the appreciation of landscape, including the aesthetic exertions of the eighteenth-century. Implicated in the more formal categories of the Sublime and the Picturesque, melancholy captures the subtle condition of beautiful sadness. 

The book proposes a range of conditions which are conducive to...

Inconspicuous: Walter Rothwell's Undercover Journey During the Cold War

Inconspicuous: Walter Rothwell's Undercover Journey During the Cold War by Wes Choc

Born in the U.S. to two then famous parents, Walter Rothwell's mother took him back to Europe as a young boy. His mother, an operatic diva, was lead in Aalban Berg's opera, Wozzeck; and, Wally played onstage as well. Then Hitler indirectly forced the disbanding of the opera, and the Rothwells relocated to Switzerland in the late 1930s. Wally came of age up amid active wartime events.

Drafted the same month World War II ended might seem fortuitous, but because of Private Rothwell's shrewd ability to speak four languages (German, French, Italian, English) fluently like a native, it enticed him...

Urban Squares as Places, Links and Displays: Successes and Failures

Urban Squares as Places, Links and Displays: Successes and Failures by Jon Lang & Nancy Marshall

To attract investment and tourists and to enhance the quality of life of their citizens, municipal authorities are paying considerable attention to the quality of the public domain of their cities - including their urban squares. Politicians find them good places for rallies. Children consider squares to be playgrounds, the elderly as places to catch-up with each other, and for many others squares are simply a place to pause for a moment.

Urban Squares as Places, Links and Displays: Successes and Failures discusses how people experience squares and the nature of the people who use them. It presents...

Healing Spaces, Modern Architecture, and the Body

Healing Spaces, Modern Architecture, and the Body by Sarah Schrank & Didem Ekici

Healing Spaces, Modern Architecture, and the Body brings together cutting-edge scholarship examining the myriad ways that architects, urban planners, medical practitioners, and everyday people have applied modern ideas about health and the body to the spaces in which they live, work, and heal. The book's contributors explore North American and European understandings of the relationship between physical movement, bodily health, technological innovation, medical concepts, natural environments, and architectural settings from the nineteenth century through the heyday of modernist architectural...

Politics, Planning and Housing Supply in Australia, England and Hong Kong

Politics, Planning and Housing Supply in Australia, England and Hong Kong by Nicole Gurran & Nick Gallent & Rebecca L. H. Chiu

In recent years many nations have asked why not enough housing is being built or, when it is built, why it isn't of the highest quality or in the best, most sustainable, locations. Politics, Planning and Housing Supply in Australia, England and Hong Kong examines the politics and planning of new homes in three very different settings, but with shared political traditions: in Australia, in England and in Hong Kong. It investigates the power-relationships and politics that underpin the allocation of land for large-scale residential schemes and the processes and politics that lead to particular...

Materials Technology

Materials Technology by Yvonne DeanMaterials Technology clearly identifies materials and technology as the fundamental generators of buildings and examines how they determine the structure, overall form and quality. It examines the issues that determine the choice of materials, and argues that the decision-making of architects, engineers and designers should take account of the environmental impact of sourcing the basic materials, and of the energy implications of their processing and use in manufacturing.

Materials Technology is an essential resource for Materials Technology units in building, architecture and surveying degree...

Creative Approaches to Planning and Local Development: Insights from Small and Medium-Sized Towns in Europe

Creative Approaches to Planning and Local Development: Insights from Small and Medium-Sized Towns in Europe by Abdelillah Hamdouch

This book project highlights creative approaches to planning and local development. The dynamic complexity, diversity and fluidity which characterize contemporary society represent challenges for planning and development endeavours. While research and policy work has extensively focused on large cities and on metropolitan regions, there has been relatively little work on 'smaller places'.

This book shows that if these new challenges affect all places and regions, small and medium-sized towns (SMSTs) are suffering many specific problems that call imperatively for the design and implementation...

The Ten Most Influential Buildings in History: Architecture's Archetypes

The Ten Most Influential Buildings in History: Architecture's Archetypes by Simon Unwin

Even the most inventive and revolutionary architects of today owe debts to the past, often to the distant past when architecture really was being invented for the first time. Architects depend on their own imaginations for personal insights and originality but their ideas may be stimulated (consciously or subliminally) by particularly powerful buildings from history. The Ten Most Influential Buildings in History: Architecture's Archetypes identifies ten architectural archetypes that have been sources of inspiration for architects through the centuries. Each archetype is analysed through distinctive...

Function and Fantasy: Iron Architecture in the Long Nineteenth Century

Function and Fantasy: Iron Architecture in the Long Nineteenth Century by Paul Dobraszczyk

The introduction of iron - and later steel - construction and decoration transformed architecture in the nineteenth century. While the structural employment of iron has been a frequent subject of study, this book re-directs scholarly scrutiny on its place in the aesthetics of architecture in the long nineteenth century. Together, its eleven unique and original chapters chart - for the first time - the global reach of iron's architectural reception, from the first debates on how iron could be incorporated into architecture's traditional aesthetics to the modernist cleaving of its structural and...

Integrating Programming, Evaluation and Participation in Design (Routledge Revivals): A Theory Z Approach

Integrating Programming, Evaluation and Participation in Design (Routledge Revivals): A Theory Z Approach by Henry SanoffFirst published in 1992, this book is about making connections that may lead towards a new professionalism, since the past several decades have given rise mainly to new kinds of specialists in the areas of programming, evaluation, and participation. The implications for such integration are far reaching, with profound future effects on the physical environment, the design professions, and the education of designers. The book is split into four sections dealing with facility programming, several forms of evaluation, participatory design, and the application of Theory Z principles. This book will...

The North Transept of Reims Cathedral: Design, Construction, and Visual Programs

The North Transept of Reims Cathedral: Design, Construction, and Visual Programs by Jennifer M. FeltmanThis interdisciplinary volume in the AVISTA series is the first book to focus solely on the north transept of Reims Cathedral, the portion of the gothic building that served as the canons' primary entrance to the cathedral from their adjoining cloister in the thirteenth century. Despite the importance of its sculpture and stained glass, as well as its ritual use by the canons, the north transept remains one of the least understood portions of the cathedral--in part because its sequence of construction is so complex, even improvised. Until recently, important archaeological evidence of the transept's...

Recoded City: Co-Creating Urban Futures

Recoded City: Co-Creating Urban Futures by Thomas Ermacora & Lucy Bullivant

Recoded City examines alternative urban design, planning and architecture for the other 90%: namely the practice of participatory placemaking, a burgeoning practice that co-author Thomas Ermacora terms 'recoding'. In combining bottom-up and top-down means of regenerating and rebalancing neighbourhoods affected by declining welfare or struck by disaster, this growing movement brings greater resilience.

Recoded City sheds light on a new epoch in the relationship between cities and civil society by presenting an emerging range of collaborative solutions and distributed governance models. The authors...

Stone Houses of Jefferson County

Stone Houses of Jefferson County by Maureen Hubbard Barros

Early settlers of Jefferson County, New York, found limestone and sandstone in easy abundance in riverbeds and outcroppings, and by 1855, built about 500 stone buildings.
In Stone Houses of Jefferson County, New York, local historians show their pride in these stone dwellings as they explore both the beauty and permanence of the stonework and the courage and ambition of the first owners. We learn how skilled masons worked the local stone and how double-faced stone walls were a protection against both fire and the region's harsh winters.
Most settlers came from New England, New York, and Pennsylvania,...

Now I Sit Me Down: From Klismos to Plastic Chair: A Natural History

Now I Sit Me Down: From Klismos to Plastic Chair: A Natural History by Witold Rybczynski

Have you ever wondered where rocking chairs came from, or why cheap plastic chairs are suddenly everywhere?

In Now I Sit Me Down, the distinguished architect and writer Witold Rybczynski chronicles the history of the chair from the folding stools of pharaonic Egypt to the ubiquitous stackable monobloc chairs of today. He tells the stories of the inventor of the bentwood chair, Michael Thonet, and of the creators of the first molded-plywood chair, Charles and Ray Eames. He reveals the history of chairs to be a social history--of different ways of sitting, of changing manners and attitudes, and...
