  • German Façade Designby Randall Ott

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    German architecture prior to the modern period has received less systemic, analytical study than that of Italy, France, and Britain.

  • Schillernde Unschärfeby Tino Mager

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 56.10

    Mit dem Paradigma der Authentizität gelangte philosophischer Sprengstoff in das Fundament gegenwärtiger Kulturerbetheorien.

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 2.99

    Extrait : "Les phares, si secourables à la marine moderne, n'ont point complétement manqué à la marine ancienne. Malheureusement, en s'écroulant du même coup que l'empire romain, les phares de l'antiquité n'ont pas laissé autant de ruines ; leurs contemporains ne nous ont légué sur ces édifices que de nombreuses dissertations ; trop de livres et pas... more...

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 2.99

    Extrait : "Un olivier au large feuillage était planté dans ma cour, vigoureux, fleurissant, épais et pareil à une colonne. Autour de lui je construisis ma chambre nuptiale, j'entassai les fortes pierres, je mis un toit, je posai les portes compactes et solides. Puis je retranchai sa chevelure large de rameaux ; je coupai le tronc au-dessus des racines,... more...
