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.

Lager: Lager

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.

Unlocking the history of the British home, this book reveals how its layout has evolved from the Stone Age to the present day, to cater for the very different needs and lifestyles of its occupants. From modest ancient dwellings and medieval merchants'' houses to imposing stately mansions and modern urban estates, the book explores the forces that have shaped our homes and examines the attitudes and innovations of each age. The story begins with the earliest Neolithic houses, built by the first people to surrender a nomadic way of life and settle on the land. It moves on to the Iron Age, and continues via the period of Roman invasion and classical order, the medieval era, the ostentatious mansions erected in Tudor times to display the wealth and social standing of their owners, and the urban civility of the Georgian terraces. It then turns to the villas and high-rise apartments of the Victorian period and, lastly, the 20th century, when domestic architecture had to urbanisation.

Born from his fascination with ancient architecture and a personal rediscovery of its beauty through materials such as wood, stone, earth and thatch, the aspiring architecture student Yukio Futagawa set out in the mid-1950s to photograph ''minka'', the traditional rural houses of Japan. This experience would be instrumental in shifting his life''s work toward photographing rather than creating architecture. This large-format compendium of Futagawa''s images of villages and homes captures not only the sequence of history but also the essence of Japanese culture at a time when much of the country remained agrarian, not yet subjected to more recent, rapid modernisation.
