BUILDINGS WITHOUT ARCHITECTS A GLOBAL GUIDE TO EVERYDAY ARCHITECTURE

John May

Anthony Reid, Consultant Editor

Buildings Without Architects is a wonderfully informative reference on vernacular styles, from adobe pueblos and Pennsylvania barns to Mongolian gers and European wooden churches. This small but comprehensive book documents the rich cultural past of vernacular building styles. It offers inspiration for home woodworking enthusiasts as well as architects, conservationists, and anyone interested in energyefficient building and sustainability.

BUILDINGS WITHOUT ARCHITECTS A GLOBAL GUIDE TO EVERYDAY ARCHITECTURE

The variety and ingenuity of the world’s vernacular building traditions are richly illustrated, and the materials and techniques are explored. With examples from every continent, the book documents the diverse methods people have used to create shelter from locally available natural materials, and shows the impressively handmade finished products through diagrams, cross-sections, and photographs.

Unlike modern buildings that rely on industrially produced materials and specialized tools and techniques, the everyday architecture featured here represents a rapidly disappearing genre of handcrafted and beautifully composed structures that are irretrievably “of their place.” These structures are the work of unsung and often anonymous builders that combine artistic beauty, practical form, and necessity.

THE PAPER

ARCHITECT

Bianchini, Siliakus, and Aysta

MARÍA VICTORIA GARRIDO BIANCHINI’s origami designs have been exhibited at the American Craft Museum in New York.

THE PAPER ARCHITECT

The Taj Mahal may have taken 22 years to build, but you can do it in less than a day! Using crisp folds and a craft knife, you can easily recreate the world’s greatest architectural structures from ordinary sheets of paper. Whether you’re building the White House after dinner or crafting an origami version of the Eiffel Tower in an afternoon—and then folding it up to send to a friend in Paris—The Paper Architect guides you through every step of the process. The directions for building these replicas are clear and easy to follow. In fact, the book contains an entire section of removable templates with color-coded fold lines that make construction simple enough for a first-time folder. All that’s needed is a craft knife, a metal-edged ruler, a cutting mat, and a clear work surface. For those looking for more of a challenge, the patterns can be enlarged or traced onto special paper for endless variations. Each project also includes a wealth of information, from the history of the buildings and technical drawings to the raw materials used during construction. With quick facts that supplement the text, step-by-step illustrations, and clear instructions, all of these display-worthy projects can be mastered with no previous paper craft or architectural experience!

PoPular science/hobby

Paul Jarvis is a full-time engineer and a trained pyrotechnician. Making soda-pop rockets allows him to combine both of these disciplines, with appealingly explosive results. With this book he hopes to show that the art of bottle rocketry needn’t be rocket science.

soda-PoP

Rockets Move over diet coke and Mentos, the soda-pop bottle has gone ballistic! the rockets in this unique guide will fly up to 90 feet into the sky, propelled by water pressurized with a bicycle pump. after learning how to construct the basic model, you’ll discover new ways to modify and improve the designs with built-on fins, nose cones, cluster bases, and more. Designs include: W A Long-Tailed Rocket using a bottle-andpipe combination W A Rocket with Nose Cone and Parachute that will return it safely to earth W A Rocket Car for low-altitude missions

Ever wondered what futures and derivatives are, or the difference between fiscal policies and monetary policies? What is the balance of trade, and what are ‘sticky prices’? This entertaining, handy little guide reveals all, in refreshingly simple bite-size tweets. Presents 140 money-spinning terms and intriguing ideas in accessible, informative tweets, each of 140 characters or less. Profiles the most important economists of the past 150 years and the thinking behind the economic strategies of political parties and governments. Includes an informative glossary of essential economic terms in an innovative format that is easy to read and assimilate.

Tweetonomics Explains the 140 most important economic terms and concepts in 20 “tweets” or less. By limiting the explanations in each “tweet” to 140 characters, there’s no chance of them getting unnecessarily complicated.

Nic Compton has been a journalist for 16 years, contributing to a variety of publications. He completed an MA in Global Political Economy at Sussex University, U.K., 2009 and is the author or co-author of nine books, including 30-Second Economics.

We hear a lot about economics in the news these days, but how much do we really understand? All too often experts assume their audience knows as much about the subject as they do. For instance, what is a balance of trade deficit? Why does the amount of cash in circulation affect interest rates? Who sets interest rates?

tweetonomics Everything you need to know about economics

in 140 characters or less

Tweetonomics pecks a hole in the jargon and explains the 140 most important economic terms and concepts in digestible ‘tweets’. The book is divided into nine chapters covering such issues as globalization, boom and bust, ‘green’ economics and the everyday workings of national economies. It also gives an overview of the past 150 years and the people who shaped them.

A layman’s guide to pet undertaking

dead pet

Planning a sensitive send-off for your dear, dead Fluffy, Fido or Flipper is one small way of assuaging the inner hurt and sending him or her gently into that good night. This book has been written to guide you through this most difficult life experience – from the moment you realise that your pet’s days are numbered (or have passed), right through to the sticky details of deciding between an old-fashioned interment or a spectacular cremation. Covering all aspects of established funereal practice for every type of pet, Dead Pet is the essential manual of practical techniques to ensure that the deceased is always dispatched with both dignity and haste.

It reveals the elements, in addition to money, that can enrich you: skills, talents, relationships, and time-work balance. It shows how crystals can help you make, and enhance, your own fortune, replacing energy-sapping emotions such as fear and worry with positive feelings of self-confidence and self-esteem.

by Bill Weinberg

Cannabis Trips is the alternative travel guide to some of the highest places on the planet. You will

take trips to 25 destinations, including festivals and cities that have a particular appeal to a cannabis culture connoisseur. This book smokes a blunt

in Barcelona, shares a chillum in Varanasi and

rolls a joint on the beaches of Koh Tao. Expect to

find palm trees, jaw-dropping mountain scenery, exceptional club life and vibrant café cultures. The final chapter covers five of the most

fascinating, but dangerous, regions on the planet where you’ll find cannabis and a whole lot more. Full of local information, history and culture, this book offers you the trips of a lifetime.
