  • Urban Ethicby Eamonn Canniffe

    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...

  • The Politics of the Piazzaby Eamonn Canniffe

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Through a detailed study of the principal spaces of Italian cities, this book explores the relationship between political systems and their methods of representation in architecture. Illustrated by contemporary photographs and analytical drawings, it examines significant piazzas and situates these examples in their social and political contexts, highlighting... 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...

  • Retailising Spaceby Prof Dr Mattias Kärrholm; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Over the past few years there has been a proliferation of new kinds of retail space. Retail space has cropped up just about everywhere in the urban landscape: in libraries, workplaces, churches and museums. In short, retail is becoming a more and more manifest part of the public domain. The traditional spaces of retail, such as city centres and outlying... 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...

  • Memories of Citiesby Dr Jonathan Charley; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

  • Building Apartheidby Dr Nicholas Coetzer; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Through a specific architectural lens, this book exposes the role the British Empire played in the development of apartheid. Through reference to previously unexamined archival material, the book uncovers a myriad of mechanisms through which Empire laid the foundations onto which the edifice of apartheid was built. It unearths the significant role... more...

  • Le Corbusier's Venice Hospital Projectby Dr Mahnaz Shah; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    While Le Corbusier's urban projects are generally considered confrontational in their relationship to the traditional urban fabric, his proposal for the Venice hospital project remained an exercise in preserving the medieval fabric of the city of Venice through a systemic replication of its urban tissue. This book offers a detailed study of Le Corbusier's... more...

  • No Matter: Theories and Practices of the Ephemeral in Architectureby Dr Anastasia Karandinou; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    How do digital media (mobile phones, GPS, iPods, portable computers, internet, virtual realities, etc.) affect the way we perceive, inhabit and design space? Why do architects traditionally design, draw and map the visual, as opposed to other types of sensations of space (the sound, the smell, the texture, etc.)? Architecture is not only about the... more...

  • The Challenge of Emulation in Art and Architectureby Professor David Mayernik; Dr Eamonn Canniffe

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Emulation is a challenging middle ground between imitation and invention. The idea of rivaling by means of imitation, as old as the Aenead and as modern as Michelangelo, fit neither the pessimistic deference of the neoclassicists nor the revolutionary spirit of the Romantics. Emulation thus disappeared along with the Renaissance humanist tradition,... more...
