Dear Readers and Colleagues, We are proud to present our new releases for the autumn of 2013 under our new name, AMBRA VERLAG. We hope you find our list of publications as good as we do! About AMBRA VERLAG AMBRA | V is the result of the takeover of the Architecture, Art and Culture division from Springer Verlag by Medecco Holding. The team you know, consisting of Angela Fössl, Mag. Angelika Heller, Tanja Szabo und myself shall continue to be in charge of making the publishing ideas of our editors and authors a reality with the same high quality and worldwide distribution services. With AMBRA, we would like to continue along the path that has proven so successful to date, while also keeping an eye on the possible innovations our new publishing house offers for our work. Modern Construction Envelopes The second edition of the popular textbook on building shells by Andrew Watts, the London-based façade specialist (www.newtechnic.com) is due to be released this fall. The book has been updated and received a new, crisp layout in line with that of the recently published third edition of the Modern Construction Handbook. Dense Atmosphere There has been a lack of actual construction density values and insights when it comes to creating the most pleasant living spaces possible until now. The new volume on this subject by Dietmar Eberle (ETH) and Eberhard Tröger was conceived to address this need. It is of inestimable value as a planning aid for our cities, which are increasingly becoming the preferred sites for our planet’s population. I wish you great success with our list of new releases for the upcoming autumn season and enjoy reading our catalogue for starters!

All the best, David Marold Senior Editor Architecture / Art & Culture david.marold@ambra-verlag.at AMBRA | V

The city and its density: a quality of life indicator

Mit der Dichtekategorie 1 beginnt die Analyse in locker bebauten Quartieren an den Rändern der Städte. Wer in eine solche Lage zieht, sucht ganz bestimmte Qualitäten. In den meist freistehenden und von Gärten umgebenen Häusern leben Menschen, die ein sehr geschütztes, intimes und privates Wohnen im Kontakt zur Natur suchen.

Urban density defines the quality of life The first comprehensive study: from the outskirts of cities to their centers

Historisch sind diese Siedlungen fast immer Erweiterungen der traditionell gewachsenen Stadtstrukturen, die am Anfang des vorigen Jahrhunderts als Reaktion auf die sprunghaft ansteigen­ den Bevölkerungszahlen und die Auswirkungen der Industri­ alisierung entstanden. In dieser Zeit verdichtete sich das Stadt­ leben in dramatischer Weise und die hygienischen Zustände verlangten nach raschen Lösungen. Eine weitere Verdichtung der Innenstädte schien unter den gegebenen Voraussetzungen nicht mehr möglich. Und so entwickelten viele Städter eine starke Sehnsucht nach frischer Luft, Licht und Sonne. Unab­ hängig von ihrem Stand suchten besonders Familien aller Einkommensklassen nach einem gesunden Leben in grüner Umgebung. Vor diesem Hintergrund entwickelte Ebenezer Howard am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts die Idee der Gartenstadt. Vom industriell besonders belasteten Grossbrittannien aus­ gehend erhoffte man sich von deren Grundsätzen bald im ganzen industrialisierten Mitteleuropa eine Entspannung der überlasteten Stadtzentren. Zunächst auf genossenschaftlicher Basis fussend, bauten viele Städte nach englischem Vorbild solche Quartiere in städtischer oder privater Trägerschaft, allerdings ohne den Anspruch, je das Gesamtbild von Howards Gartenstadt­Vision vollumfänglich umsetzen zu wollen.

Die durchgrünten Stadterweiterungen ergänzten eher frag­ mentarisch und pragmatisch die bestehende Stadt. Entweder entstanden sie in landschaftlich begünstigten Gebieten, oder auf Flächen, die auf einfache Weise die Erschliessung günstigen Baulandes ermöglichten. Gemeinsam ist den einzelnen Quar­ tieren eine gewisse flächenhafte Homogenität in ihrer städte­ baulichen Struktur. Als neue Siedlungsgebiete wurden sie planmässig am Reissbrett entworfen und nach den jeweiligen Bedürfnissen oder den Idealvorstellungen ihrer Erbauer in ihrer Zeit angelegt. Aufgrund dieser strukturellen Geschlossenheit verbinden sich bis heute viele dieser Vorstadtsiedlungen kaum mit den angrenzenden Stadtgebieten. So entstand mit den Jahren der städtebauliche Flickenteppich, der unsere Vorstädte heute prägt. Aufgrund ihrer sozialen Struktur kann man diese Siedlungen grob in zwei verschiedene Katagorien unterscheiden. Einerseits drängten schon früh wohlhabende Bürger in landschaftlich bevorzugte Lagen und bildeten Villenkolonien, die mit ihren individuell gestalteten Häusern und repräsentativen Ziergärten auf den Genuss der Natur und des eigenen Besitzes abzielten. Auf der anderen Seite wuchs der Bedarf an günstigem und gesundem Wohnraum für die vielen tausend Arbeiter in den Fabriken, deren Anlagen ebenfalls oft an den Rändern der Städte erbaut wurden. Neubaugebiete auf neu erschlossenem Bauland und die Bebauung durch kleine Einfamilienhäuser mit Nutzgärten konnte auch dieser besonders stark wachsen­ den Bevölkerungsschicht ein weitgehend selbstbestimmtes Leben ermöglichen und die zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts besonders wichtige Selbstversorgung sichern. Gerade in und nach den Kriegsjahren wurde dieser Aspekt existenziell wichtig.

In view of progressive landscape use and the growing flow of traffic, the discussion of the reasonable degree of construction density is becoming increasingly heated. Actual values and insights on which form of development creates the most pleasant living spaces are still missing. This book offers a thorough study of the relationship between the characteristics of construction density and the ensuing atmospheres,

distribution of uses and their value. 36 case study examples in Zurich, Vienna, Munich and Berlin were documented and assessed, from the outskirts to the center of the city with photographs and detailed map material according to nine (9) density categories that take public space into account. This leads to a unique compendium on the character of Central European urban spaces!

Sustainable Architecture and Urbanism – the first book on Ibos – Vitart One of the most interesting, emerging architectural offices in France Lean and sustainable architectural and urban design Beautifully designed book by Ruedi Baur

Ibos-Vitart stands among the most amaz­ ing architecture offices in France and among the few who have an international following. Jean Marc Ibos and Myrto Vitart started their career working with the office of Jean Nouvel, where they were in charge with some of his key projects. Soon after they left Nouvel, their first major work, the extension and remodeling of Lille Fine Art Museum, won the l’Equerre d’argent,

a prestigious award in France. Their design is the result of a deliberately restrained attitude. It is rooted in their profound consciousness of the responsibility of the architect in society. Delivering lasting buildings, that value and enrich a place while serving present and future users and inhabitants is their goal.This book documents 15 projects extensively – and was designed by Ruedi Baur.

Monograph on a young Austrian architecture office from Salzburg 23 realized buildings Office structures, remodelling of existing historical buildings, single-family housing ...

LP architektur has created a richly varied body of work in the ten years it has existed. The office’s breakthrough came at the 2006 Winter Oympics in Turin with the emblematic Austria House, in which Tom Lechner, the LP managing partner blended tradition with modernity. LP Architektur has won a number of Austrian architecture awards since then. In an area defined by turbotourism, the Salzburg office’s buildings

have become beacons of regional identity that now reach beyond the borders of Salzburg. LP architektur sees its designs as psychograms that are the reflections of the individual desires and dreams of their clients. This selection of 23 buildings complements the works presented in the first monograph published in 2006 and shows how broad the spectrum of the architect’s work has become in the meantime.

GRAN HORIZONTE: CURRICULUM FOR A NEW CITY

closely. In the favelas, the bulk of the population is disadvantaged in one way or another. The lives of children with autism or Down’s syndrome are particularly difficult, as few public and private spaces are designed or adapted to fit their needs. In locating the school for autistic children, known as FAVA, on a sloping site, it was important for us to leave open as large an area as possible for a park, which is something rare in the center of the city. Therefore, we designed the building as a compact volume and set it in one corner of the site. As a result, the spatial program extended to a five-story structure. In Caracas, however, lifts are service-intensive installations and would make a building of this kind unsuitable for the students, many of whom experience increased anxiety in elevators. Our solution was to build a long ramp around the outside of the building. Access to the first two floors is via the sloped topography. The development was financed from a new tax conceived to flow into structures with a social role. Companies can donate up to 100 percent of their annual tax to finance such schemes. We work in a complex environment that calls for simple solutions. That means using available local materials and labor. Most people believe that low-cost construction must be inferior to expensive forms of building. We wish to overcome prejudices of this kind as well as outdated ideas regarding how a project should be developed. Only if we shift our expectations away from a product, to a process, and reconsider traditional development strategies, will we be able to find economically feasible solutions for the masses of people in the slums. And only if we do that will we have vibrant cities for every stratum of society that lives in them. Looking at our Earth as a whole, we find a new vision for our urban planet, and for all of us who live within it.○

A EDUCATION:

As the subject of earnest discussion, the meaning of space reaches far beyond the horizon of a single discipline. Lukas Feiriss has assembled a collection of international contributions for Space Matters, a publication of the space & design strategies study program of the Univeristy of Art and Design, Linz, Austria to create an inspiring expansion of the contemporary discourse on space. The publication addresses cultural

resarchers and readers in creative professions – architects, artists, curators, scientists and students in all the related fields as well as those members of a broader audience that are interested in the incorporation of space and the pratices with which it is designed in cultural, social and humanities-oriented contexts.

Domesticating symbols looks at the entropic dissolution of symbolic structures we are experiencing today and explores various approaches towards learning to create code. Photovoltaics and its capacity to capture energy by coding instead of exploitation of resources, and of integrating in additional or surplus quantities of energy into the ecosphere of the planet’s natural balance is the central focus of this publication. Energythereby also encompasses the genuinely abstract format of electricity, which makes it possible to convert any form of energy into any other form.

What is the architect doing in the jungle? How can architects and natural scientists immerse themselves in a fruitful dialogue to generate new insights for cross-disciplinary innovation? This volume contributes to the current discussion of arts-based research with the interdisciplinary research project BiornaMetics – Architecture Defined By Natural Patterns. Biornametics is an emerging contemporary design practice which explores a new methodology that interconnects scientific evidence with creative design in the field of architecture. The word biornametics is generated from “ornament”, referring to the famous Austrian architect Adolf Loos, and biomimetics. It concentrates on the detection of the principles behind processes of emerging and dissolving patterns in animate and inanimate nature. Reflections on the architectural direction of Biornametics, issues of arts and science collaboration, and the application of the methodology show a diverse world of thoughts and approaches to the topic.

Contributions by internationally recognized experts from different specialized fields such as architecture, art, philosophy and biology Documentation of the biornametics research project at the intersection between art, architecture and bionics Collection of analyzed and prepared natural examples for workshops in the field of architecture and bionics

Im Zentrum der Donaumonarchie wird 1867 die k.k. Kunstgewerbeschule, die Vorgängerinstitution der Universität für angewandte Kunst, gegründet. Um 1900, also während OKs Studienzeit, ist die Kunstgewerbeschule mit namhaften Lehrern, u. a. Kolo Moser und Josef Hoffmann, ein internationaler Hot spot der frühen Moderne.

186 7 saw the establishment of the k.k. Kunstgewerbeschule, predecessor institution of the University of Applied Arts, in the capital of the AustroHungarian monarchy. Around 1900, during OK’s years of study, the Kunstgewerbeschule boasted prominent teachers, including Kolo Moser and Josef Hoffmann, and had become an international hotspot of early Modernism.

OK ist schon in jungen Jahren mit dem Kunsthistoriker Karl Maria Swoboda (1889 – 1977) befreundet, aus dessen Besitz das Foto stammt. 1920 entsteht der Lithografie-Zyklus Das Konzert, der Swobodas Frau Camilla beim musikalisch-seelischen Erlebnis eines Hausmusikabends in Wien zeigt. Already as a young man, OK was a friend of the art historian Karl Maria Swoboda (1889 – 1977), who owned this photograph. In 1920, OK made the series of lithographs Das Konzert, which portrays the musical and emotional experience of Swoboda’s wife Camilla during an evening of music-making at home.

The photographic estate of Oskar and Olda Kokoschka comprises approximately 5,000 photographs. It contains portraits by renowned photographers, including Madame d’Ora (Dora Kallmus), Hugo Erfurth, Brassaï, George Platt Lynes, René Burri, Trude Fleisch­mann or Erich Lessing. Apart from artistically composed images, the estate also features numerous press photographs and astonishing snapshots. With its exten-

In good old student tradition, they made fun of their studies, more precisely of anatomy for artists: the students are reading from textbooks in front of living and (ostensibly) dead (nude)

sive commentary, this first photo-biography of Kokoschka provides an insight into the artist’s many-faceted work and eventful life. The publication offers a vivid record of the evolution of photography and a historico-cultural journey through the 20th century as reflected by the mirror of this extraordinary artist.

The period between 1970 and 1979 led to far-reaching social change in Austria, the themes and positions of which were reflected in the currents that influenced the contemporary art of the time. The effects of the Realities exhibition held at the Viennese Secession in 1968 were still being felt at the beginning of the new decade. The influence of actionism also faded, whereas art with a feminist orientation gradually took center stage in the public’s interest. Artists used photography and video for their work, which also showed a performative dimension. “New media” successfully emerged in an artistic context during the 1970s. Towards the end of the decade, the art of figuration and ingenious gestures experiences a revival. The individual catalog contributions bring light to the development of the collection, the political culture and the cultural policies of Vienna, as well as the status of women in the art of the 1970s.

“Claus Mayrhofer Barabbas. Opposing Worlds, Crossing Borders”, is the first documentation of the life and work of the artist, who died in Australia in 2009. Born in Vienna in 1943, he left school at the age of 15 to become an artist. During the sixties he captivated the art scene with his unconventional paintings and world of music as the co-founder of the avant-garde “Masters of Unorthodox Jazz” formation. This publication covers his complete works as a painter. One of the high points of his creative output was the monumental painting, “The Big Bang”, which is included in the catalog as a foldout, but the volume also studies Claus Mayhofer Barabbas’ work as a musician.

An outline of an epistemology for cultural work chapter i

Introduction

course about private and public virtue” (Ibid.). If we assume that cultural work might be on the verge of a new period of intellectual and educational accomplishment, a number of issues such as human excellence and a new ecological-cosmopolitical understanding (Sloterdijk 2010:37) of what we do and how we act pose fundamental challenges for the post-industrial cultural workplace. In order to create an awareness of the consequences of our behaviour, as well as to contribute to more sustainable foundations for a global society and culture,20 the particular challenge lies in developing a new compass that could help us to shift values, “reprogram” our destructive pursuits, and rethink accumulated habits and collective aspirations, as Reto Ringger suggests (2009:20).21 However, the underlying question regarding the future of social, economic and ethical practices is whether the imperatives of globalised consumer culture and the forces of commodification and marketization—to which the production and dissemination of knowledge are vulnerable—have rendered the world incontestable.22 Different authors have problematised these issues from social, economic, political and ecological perspectives (for example, Altvater 2007; Capra 2002; Castells 2000; Gibbons et al. 1994; Horkheimer and Adorno 1947). While some have suggested “remoralising” social, economic and educational practices in the “search for place” (Banks 2007:145), others have called for future paths towards a renewed ethic of civic virtue.

The Fragmentation of the Humanities and Arts Since World War II research and education have focused overwhelmingly on science and technology, which has resulted in the marginalization of the humanities with negative repercussions for both knowledge and the human community. While the humanities appear to play an ambi-

The book conducts in-depth inquiries into the practices, nature and theory of postindustrial cultural work and the humanities – and arts – based civic dialogues which cultural work promotes. The aim of the book is to outline an epistemology for cultural work as well as to reflect upon the prospects for educational cultural work practices. A major focus of the book is on the epistemological, ecological, ethical and political

20 I do not attempt to provide much elaboration on the term culture, which, especially in recent years, has undergone yet more transformations of meaning. I use the term in a broader sense to refer to ways of life, the arts, the media, political, educational and religious culture, and attitudes to globalization. For the purpose of this book, I suggest that culture, as it is expressed in the arts, literature, film, and different practices of mediation and representation, draws from and participates in the construction of culture as a system of human values, beliefs and behaviours. 21 Ringger is a Swiss pioneer of the concept of sustainability investments. 22 Banks notes: “Yet, even now, ongoing transformations in the structure of capitalism appear to provide cultural industries with the opportunity to obtain even greater shares of wealth, power, and control (...) [T]he social and economic impacts of globalization now appear to have exacerbated the scale and scope of the cultural ‘standardization, commercialization, and rigidification’ that Adorno (...) first identified in the high-modern period” (2007:25). In an essay published after his death, Adorno in fact reiterated that the “entire practice of the culture industry transfers the profit motive naked onto cultural forms” (1981; 1991:99), thus anticipating the commercial control of all kinds of social practices that we can observe today.

Cultural work and knowledge are central topics of this book

valent role in modern culture, their intellectual values are at the same time formed by the social context in which they evolve and are practised, and, according to Gibbons et al., thus become entangled in markets in a “more diffuse sense” (1994:91). Formally and academically, the humanities represent our usual human activities as well as the meaning and values that we construct in different ways by looking at the world and thinking about life. Yet, the work of the humanities and the knowledge which they involve are not one particular thing. Their outcomes and the many forms of knowledge that they provide are all around us and present in our daily lives. They are the newspaper we read, the news we watch on television, or the exhibition we visit in the local art museum. Whether we watch an episode of Star Trek, read Stefan Zweig’s biography of Marie Antoinette, listen to the Ritual Orchestra and Chants of the Khampagar Buddhist Monastery, or visit San Francisco’s Exploratorium, these activities are all part of the humanities. The humanities are always a manner of commitment that embraces human knowledge with a central concern for human beings and our self-conscious awareness of how we know, what we know and how we act. In short, the 3

dimensions of cultural work. This includes the prospects for a new form of communal workspace for knowledge and cultural learning. Cultural work and knowledge are the central topics of this book.
