  • Why We Buildby Rowan Moore

    Pan Macmillan 2012; US$ 13.67

    Buildings are driven by human emotions and desires; hope, power, money, sex, the idea of home. In Why We Build Rowan Moore explores the making of buildings from conception to inhabitation and reveals the paradoxical power of architecture: it looks fixed and solid, but is always changing in response to the lives around it. Moving across the globe... more...

  • Reformarchitekturby Nils Aschenbeck

    Birkhäuser 2016; US$ 52.80

    Die Reformarchitektur löste um 1900 den Historismus ab - sie entstand auf der Basis des freudianischen Denkens und wurde angetrieben durch die Überzeugung, dass die Stadt des 19.

  • The Secret Lives Of Buildingsby Edward Hollis

    Granta Publications 2011; US$ 13.32

    The plans are drawn up, a site is chosen, foundations are dug: a building comes into being with the expectation that it will stay put and stay for ever.

In this radical reimagining of architectural history, Edward Hollis... more...
