    Governing by Design offers a unique perspective on twentieth-century architectural history.

In these chapters,... more...

  • Roberto Mattas Manifest zur Architekturby Evelyn Pechinger-Theuerkauf

    Verlag und Datenbank für Geisteswissenschaften - VDG Weimar 2002; US$ 15.28

    Selbst Fachleuten dürfte es weitestgehend unbekannt sein, dass der als surrealistischer Maler bekannt gewordene Matta im Jahr 1938 ein Manifest zur Architektur formulierte, das auf Betreiben André Bretons in der Zeitschrift Minotaure veröffentlicht wurde. Es handelt sich dabei um das wichtigste Zeugnis surrealistischer Architekturtheorie, das man jedoch... more...

  • Modelle der Bau- und Immobilienwirtschaft, des Architekturbüros und der Planungsdienstleistungby Alexander Beck

    Verlag und Datenbank für Geisteswissenschaften - VDG Weimar 2011; US$ 55.85

    Die Arbeit ist eine strukturelle Analyse dessen, was Architektur außerhalb der Sphäre des Diskurses innerhalb der Baukultur oder der Bautechnik ist.

  • The Autopoiesis of Architecture, Volume IIby Patrik Schumacher

    Wiley 2012; US$ 60.00

    This is the second part of a major theoretical work by Patrik Schumacher, which outlines how the discipline of architecture should be understood as its own distinct system of communication .

  • The Eyes of the Skinby Juhani Pallasmaa

    Wiley 2012; US$ 45.00

    First published in 1996, The Eyes of the Skin has become a classic of architectural theory. It asks the far-reaching question why, when there are five senses, has one single sense ? sight ? become so predominant in architectural culture and design? With the ascendancy of the digital and the all-pervasive use of the image electronically, it is a subject... more...

  • Drifting - Architecture and Migrancyby Stephen Cairns

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 78.95

    To dwell in these globalizing times requires us to negotiate increasingly palpable flows - of capital, ideas, images, goods, technology, and people. Such flows seem to pressurize, breach and sometimes even disaggregate the places we always imagined to be distinctive and stable. This book is focussed on the interaction of two elements within this contemporary... more...

  • Inclusive Designby Rob Imrie; Peter Hall

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 115.95

    The reality of the built environment for disabled people is one of social, physical and attitudinal barriers which prevent their ease of mobility, movement and access. In the United Kingdom, most homes cannot be accessed by wheelchair, while accessible transport is the exception rather than the rule. Pavements are littered with street furniture, while... more...

  • Architecture in the Digital Ageby Branko Kolarevic

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 73.95

    Architecture in the Digital Age addresses contemporary architectural practice in which digital technologies are radically changing how buildings are conceived, designed and produced. It discusses the digitally-driven changes, their origins, and their effects by grounding them in actual practices already taking place, while simultaneously speculating... more...
