Africa is certainly not only a continent of small villages in the jungle and savannah. The urbanisation of the continent is advancing rapidly, while African cities and metropolitan regions are among the fastest growing in the world. Africa Drawn presents one hundred of the most connected and important cities of the continent. The approach of this book is an effort to map the urban form and structure of African cities, and to describe and illustrate how these different places were formed. Therefore, it presents the historic character of African locations as a valuable resource for imagining the future of the continent''s cities. A visual feast of 300 images and masterfully drawn plans illustrate contemporary and historical place-making actions in Africa. The result is a fascinating documentation of African urban space and at the same time a convincing analysis of its structure and morphology.

Danweiùthese were urban sectors in China that were characterized by close links between work, residence, and social facilities. They are the material product of socialist city planning and therefore provide an urban experience that forms a stepping stone between the hutongs of the imperial capital and the superblocks of the present-day metropolis. Contrary to the disused industrial sites in western cities that often disrupt the continuity and scale of the urban fabric, the danwei have a much closer relationship to the historical, as well as the contemporary city. In modern-day Beijing, the danwei represent a unique experimental field of urban design. Beijing Danwei looks at the history and future of former danwei and presents exemplary strategies for dealing with industrial heritage. Case studies show the problems that go hand in hand with transformation and present perspectives and potential with regard to usage and the urban regeneration of Beijing.

Security in the Bubble: Navigating Crime in Urban South Africa

Focusing on the South African city of Durban, Security in the Bubble looks at spatialized security practices, engaging with strategies and dilemmas of urban security governance in cities around the world. While apartheid was spatial governance at its most brutal, postapartheid South African cities have tried to reinvent space, using it as a positive technique of governance. Christine Hentschel traces the contours of two emerging urban regimes of governing security in contemporary Durban: handsome space and instant space. Handsome space is about aesthetic and affective communication as means to making places safe. Instant space, on the other hand, addresses the crime-related personal ônavigationö systems employed by urban residents whenever they circulate through the city. While handsome space embraces the powers of attraction, instant space operates through the powers of fleeing.

This book celebrates the world''s best architecture, but don''t take my word for it. Every building in this book won a 2015 Architizer A+ Award. These winners were chosen by an international jury of over 300 experts, and endorsed by over 200,000 public votes online. Architecture is everywhereùnearly everyone in the world lives in a building and spends their time surrounded by architecture. The average American spends 90% of their time indoors. That is why we decided that architecture doesn''t need another award program stuck in the echo chamber where architects tell other architects which architects they like. The industry needs to break out and re-engage with the public that actually uses our buildings! Instead of celebrating a single honoree or making architecture into something rarefied and arcane, the A+Awards celebrate the diversity of the world''s architecture.

The definitive monograph on the legendary Mexican architecture firm known for its soulful, sensual modernism. Although architect Ricardo Legorreta has been often labeled a high modernist, his buildings and that of his firm are rooted in the traditional architecture of his native Mexico. Best known for geometric and planar buildings with stucco walls, painted in reds and coppers, yellows, purples, and blues, the classic Mexican house plan is a recurrent theme in Legorreta''s oeuvre, with courtyards, water features, and arcades playing a prominent role. A protege of the modernist master Luis Barragan, Legorreta founded his own studio in 1964 and was joined in the early 1990s by his son Victor, when the firm became Legorreta + Legorreta. Legorreta features more than thirty projects from the past decade, ranging from an elegant residence in Beverly Hills and a seaside retreat in Greece to condominiums in Acapulco and houses in Mexico City. The book also includes major commercial, Guatemala.

Urbaniseringen af Kina er den største folkevandring i menneskehedens historie. Kæmpebyer opføres med lynets hast, og senest har den kinesiske regering proklameret, at Beijing skal vokse sammen med to andre metropoler til en by med i alt 130 millioner indbyggere. Livet i Kinas kæmpebyer skildrer i tekst og fotos hverdags- og byliv i Kina. Teksten er skrevet af danskere og kinesere, som har boet og arbejdet i kinesiske storbyer. Det er dels personlige skildringer om livet i en kinesisk kæmpeby, dels baggrundshistorier, som giver perspektiv og forklaringer på, hvordan byerne udvikler sig og hvorfor. Det er historier om økonomien bag byernes udvikling og hvorfor spøgelsesbyer opstår, om forureningsproblemerne, og hvad der gøres ved det, og om kommunistpartiets første urbaniseringsplan fra 2014.

Erieta Attali, Kengo Kuma

Out of stock: Out of stock

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.
