    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...

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 73.95

  • Architecturally Speakingby Alan Read

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 78.95

    Architecturally Speaking is an international collection of essays by leading architects, artists and theorists of locality and space. Together these essays build to reflect not only what it might mean to 'speak architecturally' but also the innate relations between the artist's and architect's work, how they are distinct, and in inspiring ways, how... more...

  • Constructing Placeby Sarah Menin

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 78.95

    This book is a cutting edge study examining the attitudes to both nature and the built environment of the designer, the client and the society in which an intervention (be it architecture, landscape design or a piece of art) is made. The legacy of the Modernist view of nature and the environment is also addressed, and the degree to which such ideas... more...

  • Expressive Formby Kostas Terzidis

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 62.95

    With the increased use of computers, architecture has found itself in the midst of a plethora of possible uses.

Notions of exaggeration, hybrid, kinetic, algorithmic, fold and warp are... more...

  • Architecture as Experienceby Dana Arnold; Andrew Ballantyne

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 78.95

    Architecture as Experience investigates the perception and appropriation of places across intervals of time and culture.
