Contemporary Architecture

Contemporary Architecture

Cities don’t have to be faceless lines of gray boxes. Urban Spaces: City Embellishments presents dozens of fresh ideas for bringing big cities back to a human scale—little details like a carved façade, a tiny green space, benches, touches of bold color, a sheltering doorway, planters, and more. Each of these warm, distinctive touches is expertly explained by the best authority available: the designing architects themselves. Featuring works by over 30 internationally-known architects including Zaha Hadid, Renzo Piano, OMA, Alvaro Siza, Tadao Ando, Bernard Tschumi and Frank O. Gehry, Contemporary Architecture is an essential compendium of modern architecture....

Hatch - The New Architectural Generation

Hatch - The New Architectural Generation

"Hatch" showcases 114 architects who will define the physical fabric of our cities for the next 30 years, as well as the theoretical and interpretive background of architectural practice worldwide. These are practitioners for whom the old categories do not hold, and for whom modernism is no longer the orthodoxy. As the role of architects in cities changes, young practitioners pursue a range of work as writers, critics, curators, teachers, fashion designers, computer programmers, club promoters, materials experts, engineers, installation artists, developers and builders. Critically selected, the work of each architect, writer and photographer in "Hatch" is examined in detail to uncover the approaches that will reach their full fruition in the coming years and decades. In this work, 800 photographs and drawings of projects give more than just eye candy. With this book you can decide for yourself how good these young stars are....

Territories From Landscape to City

Territories From Landscape to City

Landscape architecture is a discipline that can bring order to the chaos of contemporary urbanism. It can also give shape and structure to the dispersed city, offering solid answers wherever the debate over the cityterritory and urban sprawl – with good reason – looks set to monopolize the attention of urbanists and architects for a long time to come. As yet, there are very few landscape architecture agencies in Europe that are both deeply involved in the territory and committed to a clear method of work. This book examines the international projects of Agence Ter in urban territories, demonstrating the three fundamental postulates embodied in the work of partners Henri Bava, Michel Hoessler and Olivier Philippe. These postulates consist of comprehending the landscape’s multiple horizons, developing plans for urban insertion within territories in motion, and creating open source systems....

Urban Living

Urban Living

Big cities are becoming more and more attractive as places to live, both nationally and internationally. The modern city represents a platform for contacts and mobility, for challenges and change. As a result, many european metropolises are registering a renewed trend towards living in urban space. But many big cities still have a surplus of available office space, while well-placed, attractive and reasonably priced apartments are lacking. This book not only presents model residential buildings by wellknown architects, but also innovative concepts that highlight future perspectives for redundant office buildings. Their conversion into attractive apartments represents a challenge to architects, investors and residents....

What is urbanity? How and where can it be experienced today and in what way does it condition our perception of the city? And which role does art play in the current discussions about the urbane? Through theoretical analyses and practical suggestions, this book explores the issue of how urban potentials can be discovered and exploited. Contributions from art, architecture, sociology and cultural studies offer a critical and emphatic approach to the “city” phenomenon, concentrating before all on actual cities. Examples from Rotterdam, Dresden, Wroclaw, Budapest and Salzburg shed light on an international theme and present artistic strategies to strengthen alternative planning methods and models of action. Urban Potentials clearly demonstrates how wasteland and contradictions can be useful to the development of the urbane....

Urban Spaces: Environments for the Future

This collection of outstanding projects for public spaces is an excellent overview of current trends in urban planning; new forms of social existence have led to an increased interest in the definition of urban space.

This volume has brought together twenty five examples of the best in urban design, with the indelible stamp of the most internationally known professionals. Each of them is thoroughly documented and illustrated with full color glossy photographs and drawings, to capture the full scale of the project’s complexities, technical assets and aesthetic innovations. This book, the fruit of a complete case study, will undoubtedly be of the greatest value to all architects, urban planners and students seeking an introduction to the latest tendencies in t...
