Since our very beginning, we have defined Snøhetta as a project in itself. We have lived this project. It has been refined, twisted, rearranged and evolved, influenced by zeitgeist, society and technology. The overlapping activities driven by different people involved at all times, has led to a continuous state of reinvention, independent of the tasks at hand. These reinventions are transprofessional and include as much architecture as landscape architecture, as much art as graphic design, as much interior architecture as urbanism. When our efforts in the process of ôtranspositioningö reveal unforeseen results, it means that each participant has managed to leave his or her profession slightly behind, releasing personality and insight into the core of the process. There is nothing to defend and nothing to gain but a moment of shared ideas. Ideas belonging to all. Each individual is a force, reaching their full potential in our collective space of creation. Each result is unique, has its own departure and

An expanded edition on the master of Modernism, Le Corbusier, by award-winning architectural historian William J. R. Curtis. Originally published in 1996 to critical fanfair, scholar William J.R. Curtis has re-issued his classic text with extensive new scholarship and contemporary research that continues the high standard of the original. Presented chronologically with a clear narrative, Curtis has worked tirelessly not only to document Le Corbusier''s key projects in detail but to contextualize them within the architect''s overarching philosophy of urbanism and art and the pervading culture of Le Corbusier''s time. With full access to the renowned Le Corbusier archive, Curtis'' text is lavishly illustrated with new photographs, plans and original sketches and a fresh new design. Praise for the first edition: ''This is not only the best single work on Le Corbusier - a model of scholarship, erudite yet eminently readable - it is also an invaluable analysis of the creative architectural process.

Architecture in Europe has always been characterized by an inimitable variety of style. Also current architecture, from Estonia to Spain, between Norway, Germany and Greece is inspired by the creative interaction of interna - tional design trends with the unparalleled and individual architectural language unique for each country for private homes and office complexes, religious and cultural buildings, or sports facilities and airports. The building technology of today is also marked by an exciting heterogeneity. Innovations like 3D printing are being applied as well as traditional brick construction, translucent high-tech concrete roofs as well as greened façades. The Atlas of European Architecture showcases the exciting esthetical, technical and typological diversity.

LIVING ARCHITECTURE presents volume 4 of the book series SCANDINAVIAN MODERN HOUSES. It contains Per Nagel''s new photographs of some of the most significant Scandinavian private houses built during the twentieth century to elucidate the distinctive character of Nordic architecture, and its fine interplay with the vast nature. Nordic architects have developed a special awareness and sense of clarity concerning one of the most important elements for Northerners: the light! This sensibility for the different tonal qualities of light, and the extremely conscious use of light as the most important form producing and space-defining element, is perhaps the most remarkable common feature of Nordic architecture - the spirit of Nordic light!

What does it take to find oil in an area where many have tried, but failed? What does it take to design buildings that become prize-winning cultural landmarks? And what can the best architects, oil explorers, business lawyers, journalists, and business developers within banking and trading analysis have in common? Idea Work can provide the answers. This book builds on a four-year research project and describes what extraordinary idea work looks like in practice. The authors take you behind the scenes of some of Norway''s leading companies and show how surprisingly similarly they work when they are working creatively to develop and realize new ideas. The book gives us, for example, a glimpse of how Snøhetta designed the Opera and the 9/11 memorial, and how explorers at Statoil discovered the most oil of all oil companies in the world in 2011. Narratives are presented on how prepping, sketches, pin-ups, drama, wonder, and punk are important aspects of the extraordinary. Examples

God''s architect: Gaudí''s ravishing symbiosis between built environment and natural world. From the towering Sagrada Família to the shimmering, textured facade of Casa Batlló and the enchanting landscape of Park Güell, it''s easy to see why Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) gained the epithet God''s architect. With fluid forms and mathematical precision, his work extols the wonder of natural creation: columns soar like tree trunks, window frames curve like flowering branches, and ceramic tiling shimmers like scaly, reptilian skin. With this outstanding attention to natural detail, his inspirations from both neo-Gothic and Orientalist aesthetics, and a lifelong commitment to Catalan identity, Gaudí created a unique brand of the Modernista movement which transformed, and defines, Barcelonas cityscape.

Modern grace: Lyrical forms from Finland. Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) made a unique modernist mark. Influenced by both the landscape and the political independence of his native Finland, he designed warm, curving, compassionate buildings, wholly set apart from the slick, mechanistic, geometric designs that characterized much contemporary European practice. Whether a church, a villa, a sauna, or a public library, Aalto''s organic structures tended to replace plaster and steel with brick and wood, often incoporating undulating, wave-like forms, which would also appear in his chair, glassware, and lamp designs. An adherent to detail, Aalto insisted upon the humanity and societal role of architecture, stating: ôModern architecture does not mean using immature new materials; the main thing is to work with materials towards a more human line.ö Many of his public buildings such as Säynätsalo Town Hall, the lecture theatre at Otaniemi Technical University, the Helsinki National Pensions ravages of war.
