London: Architecture, Building and Social Change

Lager: Lager

London, a fascinating metropolis not just in terms of its history and landmark buildings, is also a city that grew out of villages. Its unique geography is expressed in a mosaic of districts, each with its own distinctive character and pedigree. London''s districts, with their patchwork layout of primarily Georgian and Victorian squares and terraces juxtaposed with modern buildings and estates, reflect changing ideals in architecture, urban design and planning as well as shifting values in real estate and the insatiable thirst of its consumers. London is thus both text and context: fossilized social history, layerings of economic, social, and architectural history conveyed in stock brick, stucco, Portland stone, glass and steel. Underpinning this urban landscape is an evolutionary resilience that has maintained the basic spatial framework of the metropolis and sustained its imitable character. The city''s institutional framework has been severely ruptured and reinvented time and time again after districts.

In Berlin, the city divided after World War II, everybody knows about the Brandenburg Gate, Hitler''s bunker, Kennedy''s speech, red and green beer, splendidly broad boulevards, and numerous lakes. But this metropolis, once again the capital of Germany, encompasses many clandestine niches characteristic of a heterogeneous city without a beginning and without an end between its famous backyards, nature parks, and bridges. It is often these miniscule witnesses that tell authentic history. Besides the larger attractions, this unusual guide presents Berlin s other side - such as a tower so ugly that no-one wants to open a restaurant in it; a library offering its books in the trunks of living trees; the monument for the inventor of the currywurst; a residential settlement in a former East German prison; the place where the Nazis concealed the so-called ''degenerate art'' which they had confiscated; the house where David Bowie lived; an automat out of which maggots can be pulled; a museum for things

The story of New York''s west side no longer stars the Sharks and the Jets. Instead it''s a story of urban transformation, cultural shifts, and an expanding contemporary art scene. The Chelsea Gallery District has become New York''s most dominant neighborhood for contemporary art, and the streets of the west side are filled with gallery owners, art collectors, and tourists. Developments like the High Line, historical preservation projects like the Gansevoort Market, the Chelsea galleries, and plans for megaprojects like the Hudson Yards Development have redefined what is now being called the ''Far West Side'' of Manhattan. David Halle and Elisabeth Tiso offer a deep analysis of the transforming district in New York''s New Edge, and the result is a new understanding of how we perceive and interpret culture and the city in New York''s gallery district. From individual interviews with gallery owners to the behind-the-scenes politics of preservation initiatives and megaprojects, the to them.

America may be a nation obsessed with automobiles, but today the bicycle is giving the car a run for its money. And while New York is just one of many cities that is implementing new and exciting bike-friendly policies, the local cyclist population stands out as one of the most diverse, inventive, and stylish in the world. New York Bike Style celebrates this diversity with full-page photographs of riders and their bikes. Photographer Sam Polcer has combed New York''s five boroughs looking for subjects who reflect the myriad styles and demographics of the city''s cyclists--from Puerto Rican Schwinn aficionados celebrating their heritage with vintage bikes to fixed gear freaks who eat, sleep, and breathe drop handlebars; BMX kids honing their bar-spins at skateparks to fashionistas floating down leaf-strewn streets in capes and dresses. Each page is captioned with the subject''s name, what kind of bike they ride, where the photo was taken, and where they''re headed.

Venedig har gennem de seneste 1000 år facineret og fortryllet, alle der har besøgt den. Krydderier, krig, søfartsdominans, sære doger, opfindelsen af samlebåndet, inspiration for forfattere, komponister, arkitekter og alskens lurendrejere, lette damer og Casanova. Den har lagt kanaler og brolægning til det hele og lidt til. Nu har d´herrer Blendstrup og Gundersen lusket rundt i kroge og afkroge i et forsøg på at aflure Venedig sin uskyld, men der er ikke nogen. Hverdagens, kunstens, historiens, elskovens og vandets Venedig set gennem fotograf Lars Gundersens poetiske kamera og forfatter Jens Blendstrups visuelle fantasi.

Revered as the birthplace of Western thought and democracy, Athens is much more than an open-air museum filled with crumbling monuments to ancient glory. Athens takes readers on a journey from the classical city-state to today''s contemporary capital, revealing a world-famous metropolis that has been resurrected and redefined time and again. Although the Acropolis remains the city''s anchor, Athens'' vibrant culture extends far beyond the Greek city''s antique boundaries. James H. S. McGregor points out how the cityscape preserves signs of the many actors who have crossed its historical stage. Alexander the Great incorporated Athens into his empire, as did the Romans. Byzantine Christians repurposed Greek temples, the Parthenon included, into churches. From the thirteenth to fifteenth centuries, the city''s language changed from French to Spanish to Italian, as Crusaders and adventurers from different parts of Western Europe took turns sacking and administering the city.

Lager: Lager

Amsterdam-based photographer Jan Theun van Rees took it upon himself to document the wave of renovations and constructions of new premises for cultural institutions that has been a dominant trend in the city through the past decade. Beginning with the empty Stedelijk Museum and dismantled Carré Theatre, he photographed these dignified spaces in transition, temporarily hidden from public view, and rehabilitated the grand history of the buildings. Although the new interiors and edifices may be impressive, it is always the relationship with that former view which gives them depth and context. With an introduction by Sylvia Dornseiffer and poems by Willem van Toorn.

The German capital is characterized by a lively, heterogeneous and innovative architectural scene with high technical and design standards. Berlin Architecture serves as a showcase of Berlin''s architectural output. Each of the eight categories that structure the book features essays on current issues - trends and developments that provide reflective insights to the summaries that accompany the exemplary collection of around 70 projects. The chapter on residential architecture, for example, discusses the interest of creative urban clients in the high-rise apartment buildings of the 1960s and 1970s that were frowned upon for a long time. Another essay focuses on the different aspects of corporate architecture as ôconstructed logosö. Other topics include the importance of archeological display areas for urban planning, new chances for architecture through privately sponsored museums, and current trends in student dormitory buildings.
