The focus in healthcare is shifting--to managed care, to ambulatory services rather than inpatient care, to specialization for an aging population, and to consolidation by independent institutions into regional networks. The impressive, inspiring designs in Healthcare Spaces No. 4 reflect those changes, in plans for all types of healthcare facilities, including neighborhood clinics, surgery centers, urgent-care centers, and even vast hospital complexes. The best work from more than 35 top design firms, shown in 800 full-color photographs, make this book an indispensable reference for health-care professionals, architects, interior designers, and anyone interested in the latest health-care trends in our country.

Three quarters of a million people are in a plane somewhere right now. Many millions travel by air each day. For most of us, the experience of being in an airport is to be endured rather than appreciated, with little thought for the quality of the architecture. No matter how hard even the world''s best architects have tried, it is difficult to make a beautiful airport. And yet such places do exist. Cathedrals of the jet age that offer something of the transcendence of flight even in an era of mass travel and budget fares. Here are twenty-one of the most beautiful airports in the world.

These days, a subway is an integral part of a city''s heritage and a key feature of the urban landscape used by passengers. But subways are also full of history and art. They reflect a city''s personality and its past and future, and are worthy of exploration, even for those not boarding a train. It''s safe to say that a great many subways have overcome a reputation for unpleasant shadiness. Under Ground is a tour of the most fascinating subways viewed through the filters of urban planning, ethnology, art, and history. More than 100 subway stations and train cars are described in informative text and stunning color photographs. The book opens with a chapter on the origins of the subway, the story as told by four subways in particular. London''s Underground was the world''s first subway. The Paris Métro was a product of the Industrial Revolution and the first modern subway. New York City''s subway is the largest and busiest subway in America. Buenos Aires pioneered South American subway systems. Today, however,

Architecture Body and Space is about the importance of highquality architecture as a setting for exercise and athletics. The book evolves around the more moderate forms of exercise and athletics such as yoga, gymnastics and dance, but also draws on experiences from more standard type of sports. Architecture Body and Space Part 1 highlights the historical development and the required qualities of an unrestrained, sensitive and passionate architectural approach, as opposed to the restrained, rational and targeted. Part 2 presents a wide range of projects to illustrate different directions and qualities. Part 3 is a more in-depth exploration of the most important design strategies. Architecture Body and Space aims to inspire, inform, influence, develop and highlight the importance of high-quality architecture for the purpose of physical exercise.

In all debates on school system reform, teaching methods, care facilities for young children or individual funding opportunities, educational objectives are almost always at the fore. The more often issues of all-day schooling and inclusion are dealt with, the more important spatial concepts and aspects of aesthetics become. Results of international performance tests and findings from the field of developmental psychology have revealed the considerable influence that quality architecture exerts - from professional handling of design, colours, light and more to one''s ability to learn, including self-determined learning and working. Therefore, the time has come for architects to deal with these issues and to familiarise themselves with the appropriate design principles. In addition to brief theoretical asides, the latest volume from the ''best of Detail'' series provides a wide range of completed projects - from crèche to high school and community centres for children to youth centres - that demonstrate

For the past few years, The Museum of Modern Art has been in the midst of the largest building project in its history. Designed by Yoshio Taniguchi, the new museum will open in midtown Manhattan in November 2004 - 2005 to coincide with MoMA''s 75th anniversary. The 630,000-square-foot complex is nearly twice the size of the former facility, with dramatically expanded and redesigned spaces for exhibitions, public programming, educational outreach, and scholarly research. In his initial proposal, Taniguchi explained that his goal was ''to create an ideal environment for art and people through the imaginative and disciplined use of light, materials, and space.'' His stated vision of ''a museum that preserves and reinforces MoMA''s unique character as the repository of an incomparable collection of modern and contemporary art, as a pioneer of museums of modern art with a unique historical inheritance, and as an urban institution in a midtown Manhattan location'' has been resoundingly implemented.

The Herning Museum of Contemporary Art (HEART) in Herning, Denmark, inhabits a new building designed by renowned American architect Steven Holl, who was drawn to the project by the institution''s collection of works by the Italian Conceptual artist Piero Manzoni. In 1960, shirt-factory owner Aage Damgaard invited Manzoni to Herning, and the industrialist''s passion for contemporary art gave rise to a visionary model for cooperation between businesses and artists that ultimately led to the establishment of a new museum. As detailed in this richly illustrated book, Holl''s complex museum is surrounded by a landscape of hills and ponds that meshes with his structures: the single-story building itself, with its natural light and innovative roof construction, refers to the formal vocabulary of the 1960s factory opposite. In reference to its origins, an overhead view of the museum recalls outstretched shirtsleeves while the facade resembles wrinkled fabric.

Striking proof that today s religious buildings rank among architecture s most exciting and expressive structures. Across all cultures, contemporary religious buildings are among the most stimulating and experimental in architecture. Although these structures do need to offer a certain amount of functionality, they also resonate with believers or visitors on an emotional level. Because they are called on to communicate higher purposes and meanings, these constructions can be much freer in their use of architecture, space, and light than other buildings. Closer to God is a unique collection of international examples of sacred spaces of all denominations that were built in the last few years. Whether churches, synagogues, mosques, temple complexes, or other contemplative places for meditation and reflection, the architecture highlighted in this book ranks among the most exciting of our time. Closer to God presents vivid proof that contemporary religious structures are no longer visuality of the future.

For too long, kindergarten architects have been seemingly preoccupied with the principles of durability, maximisation of space, and minimisation of cost. This, however, also meant forgetting that these environments should promote fun, learning and creativity. However, the field has been experiencing a revolution and this volume showcases 60 of the most outstanding recent innovations worldwide. The chosen projects prove especially that collaboration between educationalists and designers can be uniquely fruitful for the planning and building of kindergartens.
