The Aga Khan Award for Architecture was established by His Highness the Aga Khan in 1977 to identify and encourage excellence in architecture and other forms of intervention in the built environment of societies where Muslims have a significant presence. The Award is given every three years and recognises all types of building projects that affect ­today’s built environment. The book presents the shortlist of 19 projects including the winners. What these projects in their variety across culturally diverse portions of the globe have in common is a commitment to design excellence ­despite constraints of budget, resources, climate, technology, and ­politics. They share this commitment as one of the necessary tools for societal betterment. The following five projects received the Aga Khan Award for Architecture 2010: Wadi Hanifa Wetlands, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Revitalisation of the Hypercentre of Tunis, Tunisia; Madinat Al-Zahra Museum, Cordoba, Spain; Ipekyol Textile Factory, Edirne, Turkey; Bridge School, Xiashi, Fujian, China. Mohse n Mostafavi is Dean of the Harvard University Graduate

School of Design.

Steven Holl – Scale An Architect’s Sketch Book Edited by Lars Müller Comprehensive collection of first sketches

Available April 2011 16.8 × 12.6 cm, 6 ½ ×  5 in approx. 480 pages approx. 400 illustrations, hardcover ISBN 978-3-03778-251-4, English GBP 40.–  USD/CAD 60.–

This is the second publication of Steven Holl’s legendary watercolors, ­following Written in Water, 2002. 400 watercolors represent the creative process of this famous and influential American architect. The water­colors show Holl’s highly individual method, developed over many years and containing first ideas and sketches of all major projects. Holl is known for his sculptural architecture and his genuine use of light. Both qualities meet the characteristics of the ­ watercolor-technique. This highly artistic work by an architect becomes spectacular at a time of changing working techniques in design — the lowtech attitude allows the artist to concentrate on inspiration and perception. The ­watercolors are juxtaposed by photographs of the built architecture and emphasize the crucial aspect of scale.

Steven Holl – Color, Light, Time With contributions by Jordi Safont-Tria, Sanford Kwinter, and Steven Holl Essential book for students and young architects

Available April 2011 21 × 28 cm, 8 ¼ × 9 ¾ in approx. 160 pages approx. 100 illustrations, hardcover ISBN 978-3-03778-252-1, English GBP 40.–  USD/CAD 60.–

In this publication, the current work of New York-based Steven Holl —    an outstanding representative of contemporary American architecture — is the subject of a detailed examination which is oriented by a focus on archetypical aspects of visual perception. For nearly three decades now, Steven Holl has developed his architectural stance and his reflections on architecture with striking consistency. The success of his work can be attributed to its sculptural shaping, his interest in the poetics of space, color, light, and material, and his fascination with scientific ­phenomena. With essays by Jordi Safont-Tria, Sanford Kwinter, and ­Steven Holl which discuss various dimensions of temporality vis à vis processes of creation, utilization, and perception in architecture. Steve n Holl is an American

­architect, perhaps best known for the 1998 Kiasma Contemporary Art Museum in Helsinki, Finland, the 2003 Simmons Hall at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the praised 2009 Linked Hybrid mixeduse complex in Beijing, China.

Landform Building Architecture’s New Terrain Edited by Stan Allen and Marc McQuade In cooperation with the School of Architecture, Princeton University A new terrain in architecture, presented by architectural work, ­critical texts, historical documentation, and artist projects Projects and buildings by architects such as Steven Holl, Toyo Ito, Dominique Perrault, and Philippe Rahm among others Available April 2011 16.5 × 24 cm, 6 ½ × 9 ½ in approx. 416 pages approx. 300 illustrations, hardcover ISBN 978-3-03778-223-1, English GBP 45.–  USD/CAD 65.–

Green roofs, artificial mountains and geological forms; buildings you walk on or over; networks of ramps and warped surfaces; buildings that carve into the ground or landscapes lifted high into the air: all these are commonplace in architecture today. New technologies, new design techniques and a demand for enhanced environmental performance have provoked a re-thinking of architecture’s traditional relationship to the ground. The book Landform Building sets out to examine the many manifestations of landscape and ecology in contemporary architectural practice: not as a cross-disciplinary phenomenon (architects working in the landscape) but as new design techniques, new formal strategies, and technical problems within architecture.

Using a typological structure (landscape, park, square, garden, ­promenade, etc.), Günther Vogt describes the theoretical foundation on which the successful projects of Vogt Landscape Architects are based. In recent years they have realized international projects in Europe and the United States, including a new type of city park for the Tate ­Modern in London (with Herzog & de Meuron); an “all-weather garden” with great poetic power at the Hyatt Hotel in Zurich (with Meili, Peter ­Architekten); an indoor tropical garden for the Novartis Campus in Basel (with Diener & Diener); and the exterior spaces of the Allianz Arena in Munich (with Herzog & de Meuron). The updated edition shows the ­finished projects that were presented as plans in the previous edition. G ünther Vogt is a landscape architect and owner of Vogt Landscape Zurich, with branch offices in Munich, Berlin and London. Since 2005, he is professor for Landscape Architecture at ETH Zurich.

Appropriate for school settings Continues the series of well-known bestsellers: Who Owns the Water? and The Face of Human Rights This visual reader sheds light on climate change on the basis of repor­ tage, case studies, and striking image sequences. Presented alongside chapters on the history of the earth and of climate and on the “climate engines” (solar energy, greenhouse gases, and global warming) are both the consequences of climate change and the political strategies designed to combat it. In the foreground are existential problems as formulated by the Millennium Developmental Goals: poverty and hunger, health and underdevelopment, but also the interdependency between climate change, economics, and politics. Unavoidable in this context as well are problems related to migration, megacities, and ethical questions of human rights, equity, and solidarity. For Climate’s Sake! addresses these questions rationally, at the same time evoking an emotional response. Re né Schwarze nbach is dean of the Department of Environmental Sciences at the ETH Zürich. Christian Re ntsch is a journalist. Klaus Lanz is a journalist and environmental researcher.
