    Birkhäuser 2012; US$ 110.00

    Urban riverbanks are attractive locations and highly prized recreational environments. The designs of urban river landscapes must fulfill a broad range of requirements: flood control, open space design, and ecology are as a rule the three dominant themes, and they must often be reconciled within a very restricted space. The river must... more...

    Birkhäuser 2012; US$ 49.00

    Seit einigen Jahren wird der Systembau, die Verwendung von vorgefertigten Elementen in der Architektur wieder engagiert diskutiert. Lange als monoton abgestempelt, weisen heutige Bauelemente in Wirklichkeit einen hohen Differenzierungsgrad auf, der die Kreativität der Architekten nachhaltig stützen und verstärken kann. Zahlreiche Bauten... more...

  • Architecture From the Outside Inby Robert Gutman; Dana Cuff; John Wriedt

    Princeton Architectural Press 2012; US$ 31.99

    Architecture and sociology have been fickle friends over the past half century: in the 1960s, architects relied on sociological data for design solutions and sociologists were courted by the most prestigious design schools to lecture and teach. Twenty years later, at the height of postmodernism, it was passe to be concerned with the sociological aspects... more...

  • Architecture of the Everydayby Deborah Berke; Steven Harris

    Princeton Architectural Press 2012; US$ 19.99

    Ordinary. Banal. Quotidian. These words are rarely used to praise architecture, but in fact they represent the interest of a growing number of architects looking to the everyday to escape the ever-quickening cycles of consumption and fashion that have reduced architecture to a series of stylistic fads.  Architecture of the Everyday  makes a plea for... more...

  • Architectural Regionalismby Vincent B. Canizaro

    Princeton Architectural Press 2012; US$ 31.99

    In this rapidly globalizing world, any investigation of architecture inevitably leads to considerations of regionalism. But despite its omnipresence in contemporary practice and theory, architectural regionalism remains a fluid concept, its historical development and current influence largely undocumented. This comprehensive reader brings together... more...

  • Building (in) the Futureby Phillip Bernstein; Peggy Deamer

    Princeton Architectural Press 2012; US$ 23.99

    There is no denying the transformational role of the computer in the evolution of contemporary architectural practice. But does this techno-determinist account tell the whole story? Are humans becoming irrelevant to the overall development of the built environment? Bulding (in) the Future  confronts these important questions by examining the fundamental... more...

This timely... more...
