    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 88.95

    Although contemporary practice in urbanism has many sources of design guidelines, it lacks theory to provide a flexible approach to the complexities of most urban situations. The author provides that theoretical framework, looking beyond the style obsession of urban makeovers to the fundamental elements of city-making. The scope of this book takes... more...

  • Losing Siteby Dr Shelley Hornstein; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    As Ruskin suggests in his Seven Lamps of Architecture: "We may live without [architecture], and worship without her, but we cannot remember without her." We remember best when we experience an event in a place. But what happens when we leave that place, or that place no longer exists? This book addresses the relationship between memory and place and... more...

  • Architect Knows Bestby Dr Simon Richards; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 149.95

    The idea that buildings could be used to reform human behaviour and improve society was fundamental to the 'modernist' architecture and planning of people like Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier and José Luis Sert in the first half of the 20th century. Their proposals for functional zoning, multi-level transport, high-rise living, and machine-inspired aesthetics... more...

  • The Dissolution of Placeby Professor Shelton Waldrep; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Postmodern architecture - with its return to ornamentality, historical quotation, and low-culture kitsch - has long been seen as a critical and popular anodyne to the worst aspects of modernist architecture: glass boxes built in urban locales as so many interchangeable, generic anti-architectural cubes and slabs. This book extends this debate beyond... more...

  • The Architectures of Childhoodby Dr Roy Kozlovsky; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Between 1935 and 1959, the architecture of childhood was at the centre of architectural discourse in a way that is unique in architectural history. Some of the seminal projects of the period, such as the Secondary Modern School at Hunstanton by Peter and Alison Smithson, Le Corbusier?s Unité d?Habitation at Marseilles, or Aldo van Eyck?s playgrounds... more...
