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).

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.

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.

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.
