Designing Gotham: West Point Engineers and the Rise of Modern New York, 1817-1898

Designing Gotham: West Point Engineers and the Rise of Modern New York, 1817-1898 by Jon Scott Logel

Between 1817 and 1898, New York City evolved from a vital Atlantic port of trade to the center of American commerce and culture. With this rapid commercial growth and cultural development, New York came to epitomize a nineteenth-century metropolis. Although this important urban transformation is well documented, the critical role of select Union soldiers turned New York engineers has, until now, remained largely unexplored. In Designing Gotham, Jon Scott Logel examines the fascinating careers of George S. Greene, Egbert L. Viele, John Newton, Henry Warner Slocum, and Fitz John Porter, all of...

Planning Chicago

Planning Chicago by D. Bradford Hunt & Jon B. DeVriesUrban planning was born in Chicago, but today's city is not the product of Daniel Burnham or Mrs. O'Leary's cow. It's the Rust Belt metropolis that has shouldered its way onto the list of global cities. But what did planning have to do with it? Where did planning steer the city right, where did it fail, and where was it ignored? Most important, what does planning offer today?

Buildings Are for People: Human Ecological Design

Buildings Are for People: Human Ecological Design by Bill CaplanBuildings are for People: Human Ecological Design offers a new approach to the process of conceiving architectural design, one that considers the interactions of the built environment with people and the natural environment. The book exposes our visceral and experiential connections to buildings, and how buildings intervene directly with our ecosystem, natural environment and sense of place. It brings to light our ability to utilize a building's surfaces, shape and materiality to synergize with the energy and forces of nature for a more green and sustainable architecture. It points out many...

Routledge Revivals: Theories of Planning and Spatial Development (1983)

Routledge Revivals: Theories of Planning and Spatial Development (1983) by Philip Cooke

First published in 1983, this book attempts to unify two bodies of theory which had become severely disjointed. Theories of the planning process had become detached from those of the urban and regional processes which are the subject of planning intervention. The author argues that major weaknesses of planning intervention in cities and regions have resulted from this split, and shows how it is possible to develop an integrated theory of the relationship between planning and spatial development.

The mechanism which helps to unify the two fields is the division of labour. This poses problems for...

German Fa

German Fa by Randall Ott

German architecture prior to the modern period has received less systemic, analytical study than that of Italy, France, and Britain. Scholarly discussion of broad traditions or continuities within Germanic or Central European façade design is even sparser. Baroque era studies of the region mostly devote themselves to isolated architects, monuments, or movements. Modernism's advent decisively changed this: Germanic architecture enjoyed sudden ascendancy. Yet, even so, study specifically of that region's façades still lagged - nothing compares to the dozens of treatments of Le Corbusier's façade...

Homeland: Zionism as Housing Regime, 1860-2011

Homeland: Zionism as Housing Regime, 1860-2011 by Yael Allweil

On 29 March 2016 the New York based online journal, Realty Today reported 'Israel is facing a housing crisis with ...[the] home inventory lacking 100,000 apartments... House prices, which have more than doubled in less than a decade, resulted in a mass protest back in 2011'.

As Yael Allweil reveals in her fascinating book, housing has played a pivotal role in the history of nationalism and nation building in Israel-Palestine. She adopts the concept of 'homeland' to highlight how land and housing are central to both Zionism and Palestinian nationalism, and how the history of Zionist and Palestinian...

Victorian and Edwardian British Industrial Architecture

Victorian and Edwardian British Industrial Architecture by Lynn PearsonBy the end of Queen Victoria's reign, factories had become an inescapable part of the townscape, their chimneys dominating urban views while their labourers filled the streets, coming and going between work and home. This book is concerned with the architecture, planning and design of those factories that were part of the second wave of the industrial revolution. The book's geographical range encompasses the whole of the British Isles while its time span covers the Victorian and Edwardian eras, 1837- 1910, and the period leading up to the First World War. It also looks back to earlier buildings...

Steward of the Land: Selected Writings of Nineteenth-Century Horticulturist Thomas Affleck by Thomas Affleck

In the first collection of published writings of Thomas Affleck (1812--1868), Lake Douglas re-establishes the reputation of a tireless agricultural reformer, entrepreneur, and horticulturist. Affleck's wide range of interests -- animal husbandry, agriculture, scientific farming, ornamental horticulture, insects, and hydrology, among others -- should afford him a celebrated status in several disciplines; yet until now his immense contributions remained largely unheralded. Steward of the Land remedies this oversight with a broad, annotated selection of Affleck's works, rightfully placing him alongside...

Using Plants for Stormwater Management: A Green Infrastructure Guide for the Gulf South

Using Plants for Stormwater Management: A Green Infrastructure Guide for the Gulf South by Dana Nunez Brown

The subtropical climate of the Gulf South supports a varied abundance of flora, and this diversity is sustained by the ample amount of rainwater that characterizes the region. Managing rainwater in a planned environment and mitigating its effect on human habitation can test the skills of even the most seasoned landscape architect or designer. That challenge has never been more acute as increased human demand for natural resources compels professionals and home gardeners alike to seek out sustainable ecological solutions.

In this guidebook, Dana Nunez Brown details ways to manage each drop of...
