Community-Built: Art, Construction, Preservation, and Place

Katherine Melcher

Community-Built: Art, Construction, Preservation, and Place by Katherine Melcher

Throughout history and around the world, community members have come together to build places, be it settlers constructing log cabins in nineteenth-century Canada, an artist group creating a waterfront gathering place along the Danube in Budapest, or residents helping revive small-town main streets in the United States. What all these projects have in common is that they involve local volunteers in the construction of public and community places; they are community-built.

Although much attention has been given to specific community-built movements such as public murals and community gardens,...

Take One Building: Interdisciplinary Research Perspectives of the Seattle Central Library

Ruth Conroy Dalton

Take One Building: Interdisciplinary Research Perspectives of the Seattle Central Library by Ruth Conroy Dalton

This book evaluates how we experience and understand buildings in different ways depending upon our academic and professional background. With reference to Rem Koolhaas' Seattle Central Library, the book illustrates a range of different methods available through its application to the building. By seeing such a variety of different research methods applied to one setting, it provides the opportunity for researchers to understand how tools can highlight various aspects of a building and how those different methods can augment, or complement, each other.

Unique to this book are contributions from...

Global Heritage Assemblages: Development and Modern Architecture in Africa

Christoph Rausch

Global Heritage Assemblages: Development and Modern Architecture in Africa by Christoph Rausch

UNESCO aims to tackle Africa's under-representation on its World Heritage List by inscribing instances of nineteenth- and twentieth-century modern architecture and urban planning there. But, what is one to make of the utopias of progress and development for which these buildings and sites stand? After all, concern for 'modern heritage' invariably-and paradoxically it seems-has to reckon with those utopias as problematic futures of the past, a circumstance complicating intentions to preserve a recent 'culture' of modernization on the African continent.

This book, a new title in Routledge's Studies...

The Architecture of Percier and Fontaine and the Struggle for Sovereignty in Revolutionary France

Iris Moon

The Architecture of Percier and Fontaine and the Struggle for Sovereignty in Revolutionary France by Iris Moon

As the official architects of Napoleon, Charles Percier (1764-1838) and Pierre-François-Léonard Fontaine (1762-1853) designed interiors that responded to the radical ideologies and collective forms of destruction that took place during the French Revolution. The architects visualized new forms of imperial sovereignty by inverting the symbols of monarchy and revolution, constructing meeting rooms resembling military encampments and gilded thrones that replaced the Bourbon lily with Napoleonic bees. Yet in the wake of political struggle, each foundation stone that the architects laid for the...

The Ethics of a Potential Urbanism: Critical encounters between Giorgio Agamben and architecture

Camillo Boano

The Ethics of a Potential Urbanism: Critical encounters between Giorgio Agamben and architecture by Camillo Boano

The Ethics of a Potential Urbanism explores the possible and potential relevance of Giorgio Agamben's political thoughts and writings for the theory and the practice of architecture and urban design. It sketches out the potentiality of Agamben's politics, which can affect change in current architectural and design discourses. The book investigates the possibility of an inoperative architecture, as an ethical shift for a different practice, just a little bit different, but able to deactivate the sociospatial dispositive and mobilize a new theory and a new project for the urban now to come. This...

The Architecture of San Juan de Puerto Rico: Five centuries of urban and architectural experimentation

Pab

The Architecture of San Juan de Puerto Rico: Five centuries of urban and architectural experimentation by Pab

As San Juan nears the 500th anniversary of its founding, Arleen Pabón-Charneco explores the urban and architectural developments that have taken place over the last five centuries, transforming the site from a small Caribbean enclave to a sprawling modern capital.

As the oldest European settlement in the United States and second oldest in the Western Hemisphere, San Juan is an example of the experimentation that took place in the American "borderland" from 1519 to 1898, when Spanish sovereignty ended. The author also investigates post-1898 examples to explore how architectural ideas were exported...

Nordic Modernism: Scandinavian Architecture 1890-2017

William C. Miller

Nordic Modernism: Scandinavian Architecture 1890-2017 by William C. MillerModernism was instrumental in the development of twentieth and twenty-first century Scandinavian architecture, for it captured a progressive, urbane character that was inextricably associated with, and embraced the social programmes of the Nordic welfare states. Recognized internationally for its sensitivity and responsiveness to place and locale, and its thoughtful use of materials and refined detailing, Nordic architecture continues to evolve and explore its modernist roots. This new book covers the romantic and classical architectural foundations of Nordic modernism; the development of Nordic...

The Experience of Architecture

Henry Plummer

The Experience of Architecture by Henry Plummer

A thought-provoking consideration of how architecture, from a doorknob to a city plan, can influence human behavior

How does the experience of turning a door handle, opening a door from one space into another, affect us? It is no wonder that the door, one of the most elemental architectural forms, has such metaphorical richness. But even on a purely physical human level, the cold touch of a brass handle or the swish of a sliding screen gives rise to an emotional reaction, sometimes modest, occasionally profound.

This book aims to understand how these everyday acts are influenced by architectural...

The Fabric Formwork Book: Methods for Building New Architectural and Structural Forms in Concrete

Mark West

The Fabric Formwork Book: Methods for Building New Architectural and Structural Forms in Concrete by Mark West

Concrete is the most used man-made material in the world and is the fundamental physical medium for most of the world's architecture and construction. The character of concrete is largely the product of the rigid moulds that have shaped it since its invention in antiquity. The advent of flexible moulds, however, marks a radical break from conventional practice - and conventional concrete architecture. The Fabric Formwork Book provides the first comprehensive handbook on the emerging technology of flexible moulds for reinforced concrete architecture.

Written by the foremost expert in the field,...

This Thing Called Theory

Teresa Stoppani

This Thing Called Theory by Teresa Stoppani

In the age of post-digital architecture and digital materiality, This Thing Called Theory explores current practices of architectural theory, their critical and productive role. The book is organized in sections which explore theory as an open issue in architecture, as it relates to and borrows from other disciplines, thus opening up architecture itself and showing how architecture is inextricably connected to other social and theoretical practices.

The sections move gradually from the specifics of architectural thought - its history, theory, and criticism - and their ongoing relation with philosophy,...

The Architecture of Phantasmagoria: Specters of the City

Libero Andreotti & Nadir Lahiji

The Architecture of Phantasmagoria: Specters of the City by Libero Andreotti & Nadir Lahiji

In a time of mass-mediated modernity, the city becomes, almost by definition, a constitutively 'mediated' city. Today, more than ever before, the omnipresence of media in every sphere of culture is creating a new urban ontology, saturating, fracturing, and exacerbating the manifold experience of city life. The authors describe this condition as one of 'hyper-mediation' - a qualitatively new phase in the city's historical evolution. The concept of phantasmagoria has pride of place in their study; using it as an all-embracing explanatory framework, they explore its meanings as a critical category...

Landscape as Infrastructure: A Base Primer

Pierre Belanger

Landscape as Infrastructure: A Base Primer by Pierre Belanger

As ecology becomes the new engineering, the projection of landscape as infrastructure-the contemporary alignment of the disciplines of landscape architecture, civil engineering, and urban planning- has become pressing. Predominant challenges facing urban regions and territories today-including shifting climates, material flows, and population mobilities, are addressed and strategized here. Responding to the under-performance of master planning and over-exertion of technological systems at the end of twentieth century, this book argues for the strategic design of "infrastructural ecologies,"...
