The acclaimed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma (born 1954) and photographer Erieta Attali complement one another perfectly in terms of their artistic statement: both of them focus on the inclusion of the landscape. It is not the architecture as such that plays the primary role but the way in which it communicates with the surrounding world. Details from nature and the intricate connection of interior with exterior space characterize the photographs by Attali. In his unique works, Kuma combines Japanese traditions in architecture with those of modernist architecture. His architecture constitutes a bridge where the individual and nature meet. Kuma became famous in the West for his sensitive extension to a mid-century icon in New Canaan, Connecticut, which this exquisite monograph insightfully discusses and portrays.

Far from cliches and generally accepted ideas, the French architectural practice of Alain Moatti and Henri Riviere has for almost ten years been creating an oeuvre where in buildings appeal to a broad public, with finished buildings that are identical to their original sketches. It is this fidelity, which is at the same time their intimate commitment, that forms the image in its promise. Intriguing as they are delicate, some 23 of the architects designs are presented here, from realised projects for the City Internationale de la Dentelle et de la Mode in Calais, a Boutique for Yves Saint Laurent, Paris and the Grande Halle, Arles to numerous competition entries and yet to be realised projects. All works and projects are accompanied by photographs, computer models, technical drawings, alongside an interview with the architects.

How do you translate Giorgio Armani into architecture? For the Armani/Ginza Tower, it was essential to project not only Giorgio Armani''s creativity as a designer, but his one and only personality, recreating the atmosphere of the atelier of the Italian creative genius, as well as his aesthetic code and personal image. How do you combine the concept of luxury with restrained elegance, the concept of absolute modernity with a lasting style...the Armani style? In Tokyo, for the first time ever, the entirety of his work and image is represented in a single building.

Homa Farjadi''s recent work reveals a consistent, reflective grasp on the role of design in shaping public space within our changing cities. In these projects, there is a sense of public space where citizens or users of the sites construct their own spaces while experiencing them. These architectures and landscapes incorporate spatial vectors, tensions, lines of flow, all interwoven within the historic and current urban context, resulting in design that appears as a still snapshot within a complex system of movement.

Frank Lloyd Wright, Art Collector: Secessionist Prints from the Turn of the Century

These Secessionist art prints, acquired by Frank Lloyd Wright and his lover Mamah Borthwick Cheney during their infamous flight to Europe in 1909-1910, reveal a new dimension of the architect''s taste and aesthetic preferences. This previously unknown and newly discovered group of prints from his personal art collection shows that around the turn of the twentieth century Wright had a surprising interest in European artists pursuing their own versions of modernism. Identified from careful archival research, the prints demonstrate how richly diffuse and multifaceted modernism was before the codification of a modernist canon. Wright, a revolutionary architect, preferred the work of Secessionists to that of the avant-garde of expressionism, cubism, and futurism. To Wright, the artists he selected were modern, and they appealed deeply to his interest in landscapes and graphic techniques of reproduction.

Lafayette Park, an affordable middle-class residential area in downtown Detroit, is home to the largest collection of buildings designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in the world. Today, it is one of Detroits most racially integrated and economically stable neighbourhoods, although it is surrounded by evidence of a city in financial distress. Through interviews with and essays by residents; reproductions of archival material; and new photographs by Karin Jobst, Vasco Roma and Corine Vermeulen, and previously unpublished photographs by documentary filmmaker Janine Debanné, this book examines the way that Lafayette Park residents confront and interact with this unique modernist environment. Lafayette Park has not received the level of international attention that other similar projects by Mies have. While there are many books about abandoned buildings in Detroit and about the citys prosperous past, this book is about a remarkable part of the city as it exists today, in the twenty-first century.

How does one breathe new life into an abandoned dry dock? BIG architects have designed an extraordinary museum to revive Denmark''s proud maritime history. The Danish Maritime Museum fits into a unique historical and spatial context between one of Denmark''s most important buildings - the world-famous Kronborg Castle - and a new, ambitious cultural centre. In order to preserve the dock as an open, outdoor space, BIG has placed the museum underground, just outside the wall of a dry dock in a formerly abandoned shipyard. Author Bruce Peter takes us on a tour of the new Museet for Søfart in Helsingør, Denmark. In text, photographs and architectural drawings, Peter documents this remarkable adventure in architecture, civil and structural engineering.
