This guide is a celebration of the works of professional architects in three South African metropolitan centres, namely Cape Town, Durban and the Johannesburg/Pretoria Axis. The content ranges from the early years of European settlement, where architects were trained by the military schools of engineering, through the period of apprenticeship either to a recognised practicing architect or in public works, to the twentieth century and beyond, where architects were regulated as professionals by legislation, as was their education. The projects selected are all secular, being either in the public domain or eye, and therefore readily accessible. This guide is structured along main themes, each historically located. Each episode or project type featured is highlighted by a representative from each metropolitan centre, each being discussed in broader detail alongside similar contemporaneous local examples. In total the guide features over a hundred-and-fifty projects QR codes).

Water management runs in the blood of the Dutch: draining the Netherlands and keeping it dry is a process they started centuries ago and continue to this day. In Sweet & Salt: Water and the Dutch, author Tracy Metz and art historian Maartje van den Heuvel demonstrate, in text and images, how the Netherlands negotiates its evolving relationship with water--and what the rest of the world can learn from them as our sea levels rise, our rivers swell and storms and droughts multiply. From New Orleans and Hamburg to Vietnam and China, the world is facing landscapes in drastic metamorphosis. And from the dikes and dams of the past to the new solutions of Dutch design practice for the future, the Netherlands'' history with water offers a much-needed perspective on life in our new waterworld.

Designed as a scrapbook containing a wide-ranging collection of ideas aimed at starting an exploration, the publication blends observations and comments with sketches and photographs.

The architecture of a people is a living, breathing thing which constantly evolves. As a community grows, thrives, changes and develops, the architecture does as well. By examining the Japanese history of buildings and building designs from prehistory to modern day, lovers of Japan will develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of this island country. Simplicity, sensitivity to the natural environment, and the use of natural materials are the hallmarks of Japanese architecture. The Art of Japanese Architecture provides a broad overview of traditional Japanese architecture in its historical and cultural context. It begins with a discussion of prehistoric dwellings and concludes with a description of modern Japanese buildings. Important historical influences and trendsùnotably the introduction of Buddhist culture from Korea and China, the development of feudalism, and the influence of modern Western styles of buildingùare all discussed in detail as facets of Japanese design.

Lager: Lager

A research focused in the reason of building the bunkers in Albania (over 750.000 bunkers were built during Hoxha regime to prevent possible external invasions), how the people of Albania nowadays coexists with them, how and why do they use them. This book does not aim to defend or protect all of our inherited bunkers. Instead it brings a new point of view. Its aims are firstly, as a conceptual proposal, to create a debate on the role that the bunkers have had and still have; and secondly, as a practical manual for reuse, providing models illustrated by details, and a shopping list with expenditures. For example, the proposed transformation of a triple bunker would cost about 150 euros. In this way, this book comes as an invitation to expand the frontiers of freedom. It does not state that in today''s civilization there is nothing ugly, evil, bloody, dangerous to both the destinies of the global and the individual.

These buildings satisfied briefs which are mostly modest and "human", as opposed to the large housing sectors which are being build in Seoul just as in the other great Asian cities. Many of them are particular attentive to their surroundings, especially when it''s a question of a subtle insertion into a mixed urban context, composed of old and new constructions. The standard of construction is consistently high, proof of a survival of high quality traditional workmanship but also of close attention to detail. All this leads to the fact that the best Korean architecture bears comparison with the best internatilan work, while maintaining specific cultural qualities which merit respect.

This major new book with essays by prominent scholars presents the austere and simply styled objects of the Shakers in context of their faith and community at Mt. Lebanon, N.Y., the spiritual centre of the Shaker world. Outstanding examples of furniture, textiles, tools, machinery, books, drawings, ephemera and other objects, as well as historic images and new photography of the rooms and landscapes of various Shaker sites, bring the rich world of the Shakers to life. For 160 years, from 1787 to 1947, the Shakers at Mt. Lebanon led the largest and most successful utopian communal society in America. From this central community developed the Shakers'' ideals of equality of labour, gender, and race, as well as communal property, freedom, and pacifism. While the book provides a rich historical overview as seen through objects made and used at Mt. Lebanon, it also includes a section on the last active Shaker community, at Sabbathday Lake, Maine.
