The Houses of St. Augustine

David Nolan

The Houses of St. Augustine by David NolanWhen the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, St. Augustine was already half a century old. Founded in 1565, the city has been continuously inhabited ever since, and its architectural styles tell stories of boom and bust, fad and tradition, war and peace, modernization and historic preservation.

This affectionate portrait of our oldest city offers a comprehensive survey of the many architectural features that have expressed the needs and preferences of St. Augustine's inhabitants over more than four centuries of Spanish, British, and American government. From the coquina stone structures of colonial...

Medieval Heresy and the Inquisition: How the Vatican Got Away with the Murders of Millions of Innocent People

Arthur S. Turberville

Medieval Heresy and the Inquisition: How the Vatican Got Away with the Murders of Millions of Innocent People by Arthur S. TurbervilleArthur S. Turberville details the Vatican's doctrine underlying the violent Roman Inquisition, which was used to suppress all opponents to the Roman Catholic Church's well-established religion. This book is not a detailed history of the Inquisition, but rather an excellent survey of literature on the Church's doctrines on this practice.

Architecture and Utopia: The Israeli Experiment

Michael Chyutin

Architecture and Utopia: The Israeli Experiment by Michael ChyutinThere are more than 450 Moshavim settlements and about 270 kibbutzim in Israel. While there is a range of communal and cooperative kibbutz movements, all with slight ideological differences, they are all collective rural communities, based on an ideal to create a social utopian settlement. Placing the kibbutz within the wider context of utopian social ideals and how they have historically been physically and architecturally constructed, this book discusses the form of the 'ideal settlement' as an integral part and means for realizing a utopian doctrine. It presents an analysis of physical planning...

An Architecture of Ineloquence: A Study in Modern Architecture and Religion

J. K. Birksted

An Architecture of Ineloquence: A Study in Modern Architecture and Religion by J. K. BirkstedSet on a hillside near Cluny, in a region associated with religious institutions and sacred architecture (including Le Corbusier's La Tourette), Le Carmel de la Paix, designed by José Luis Sert, remains tranquilly unvisited and quietly erased from architectural history. Why? This unusual convent falls outside the standard categories of Sert's architecture and has been overlooked in most publications about his work. As J.K. Birksted explains, the design and construction process for this building proved nightmarish, resulting in a building which, at first sight, appears to be 'ineloquent'. This...

Approaches to Byzantine Architecture and its Decoration: Studies in Honor of Slobodan Curcic

Mark J. Johnson & Amy Papalexandrou

Approaches to Byzantine Architecture and its Decoration: Studies in Honor of Slobodan Curcic by Mark J. Johnson & Amy PapalexandrouThe fourteen essays in this collection demonstrate a wide variety of approaches to the study of Byzantine architecture and its decoration, a reflection of both newer trends and traditional scholarship in the field. The variety is also a reflection of Professor Curcic's wide interests, which he shares with his students. These include the analysis of recent archaeological discoveries; recovery of lost monuments through archival research and onsite examination of material remains; reconsidering traditional typological approaches often ignored in current scholarship; fresh interpretations of architectural...

Rome: Continuing Encounters between Past and Present

Dorigen Caldwell

Rome: Continuing Encounters between Past and Present by Dorigen CaldwellFew other cities can compare with Rome's history of continuous habitation, nor with the survival of so many different epochs in its present.

Bringing together scholars from the disciplines of architectural history, urban studies, art history, archaeology and film studies, this book comprises a series of studies on the evolution of the city of Rome and the ways in which it has represented and reconfigured itself from the medieval period to the present...

Ineffably Urban: Imaging Buffalo

Miriam Paeslack

Ineffably Urban: Imaging Buffalo by Miriam PaeslackBuffalo, in New York state, is 'ineffable': a typical city in transition between its past and future. It is a classic example of one of many 'shrinking cities' in North America and elsewhere which once prospered because of heavy industrialization, but which now have to deal with various degrees of urban decay. Bringing together a range of scholars from the humanities, the social sciences, art and architecture, this volume looks at both the literal city image and urban representation generated by photographs, video, historical and contemporary narratives, and grass-root initiatives. It investigates...

Rebuilding Anatolia after the Mongol Conquest: Islamic Architecture in the Lands of Rum, 1240-1330

Patricia Blessing

Rebuilding Anatolia after the Mongol Conquest: Islamic Architecture in the Lands of Rum, 1240-1330 by Patricia BlessingThis book is a study of Islamic architecture in Anatolia following the Mongol conquest in 1243. Complex shifts in rule, movements of population, and cultural transformations took place that affected architecture on multiple levels. Beginning with the Mongol conquest of Anatolia, and ending with the demise of the Ilkhanid Empire, centered in Iran, in the 1330s, this book considers how the integration of Anatolia into the Mongol world system transformed architecture and patronage in the region. Traditionally, this period has been studied within the larger narrative of a progression from Seljuk...

Demolishing Whitehall: Leslie Martin, Harold Wilson and the Architecture of White Heat

Adam Sharr & Stephen Thornton

Demolishing Whitehall: Leslie Martin, Harold Wilson and the Architecture of White Heat by Adam Sharr & Stephen ThorntonThis book is about a lost world, albeit one less than 50 years old. It is the story of a grand plan to demolish most of Whitehall, London's historic government district, and replace it with a ziggurat-section megastructure built in concrete. In 1965 the architect Leslie Martin submitted a proposal to Charles Pannell, Minister of Public Building and Works in Harold Wilson's Labour government, for the wholesale reconstruction of London's 'Government Centre'. Still reeling from war damage, its eighteenth- and nineteenth-century palaces stood as the patched-up headquarters of an imperial bureaucracy...

Modernist Semis and Terraces in England

Finn Jensen

Modernist Semis and Terraces in England by Finn JensenBetween the two World Wars, there was an unprecedented need for new houses in Britain which resulted in a building boom. While only a small percentage of this building took the form of Modernism, there was still a significant number of semis and terraces built for the workers and middle-class families in the 1920s and 1930s built in this style. This book examines these modest Modernist houses within the broader context of the Modern Movement in Europe, as well as the inter-war building boom in suburban Britain. Illustrated with line drawings and photographs of more than 30 examples from around...

A Critical History of Contemporary Architecture: 1960-2010

Elie G. Haddad & David Rifkind

A Critical History of Contemporary Architecture: 1960-2010 by Elie G. Haddad & David Rifkind1960, following as it did the last CIAM meeting, signalled a turning point for the Modern Movement. From then on, architecture was influenced by seminal texts by Aldo Rossi and Robert Venturi, and gave rise to the first revisionary movement following Modernism. Bringing together leading experts in the field, this book provides a comprehensive, critical overview of the developments in architecture from 1960 to 2010. It consists of two parts: the first section providing a presentation of major movements in architecture after 1960, and the second, a geographic survey that covers a wide range of...

Nationalism and Architecture

Darren Deane & Sarah Butler

Nationalism and Architecture by Darren Deane & Sarah ButlerUnlike regionalism in architecture, which has been widely discussed in recent years, nationalism in architecture has not been so well explored and understood. However, the most powerful collective representation of a nation is through its architecture and how that architecture engages the global arena by expressing, defining and sometimes negating a sense of nation in order to participate in the international world. Bringing together case studies from Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australia, this book provides a truly global exploration of the relationship...

What is Wrong with Us? Essays in Cultural Pathology

Eric Coombes & Theodore Dalrymple

What is Wrong with Us? Essays in Cultural Pathology by Eric Coombes & Theodore DalrympleCan any of us entirely banish from our hearts and minds grave misgivings about the condition of the culture we now inhabit? Expressions of those misgivings are mostly unheard in public forums, ignored in the dominant media, and, if noticed at all, dismissed by state-supported bureaucracies and commercial vested interests. To have any chance of gaining attention, they must resolve themselves into coherent forms. We need to clarify our perceptions of the things that trouble us, by articulating and developing our thoughts about them. That is, we are in need of serious criticism-serious criticism,...
