ORO EDITIONS Fall 2019 Over the last 18 years ORO Editions has been prominently recognized for its consistently innovative achievements in the design publishing community. ORO’s thriving publishing program, with superior quality book production, has produced a multitude of singularly exceptional titles with a concentration on architecture, landscape, urban planning, applied research, and design, whilst striving to represent the accomplishments of world class architects, landscape architects, urbanists, authors, graphic designers, artists, and photographers. Within this flourishing editorial paradigm, ORO has curated and articulated a passion for creativity and artistry that is exemplified in its published work which has received a steady stream of awards and industry accolades. Selecting the finest production materials, exquisite graphic design and employing our own unique craftsman’s approach to print production at the highest level of quality, our dedicated team works to ensure perfection as we provide distinct and aesthetically superior style to each unique title.

Gathering is a collection of fourteen projects that exemplify how architecture has the power to bring people together by design, allowing them to engage with one another in new ways, to generate ideas, share their passions and build communities. The projects included in this volume range greatly in size, function, and aesthetic, from the High Meadow Dwellings at Fallingwater to the Newport Beach Civic Center and Park to Apple Stores located around the world.

This book documents a collection of drawings, photographs of building sites and completed buildings, as well as images of construction details, according to a new analytical reading based on the role of tectonics in the definition of an avant-garde architectural language obtained through the use of exposed conglomerates (concrete, rammed earth, and prefabricated components). Chinese Brutalism Today addresses academics, the Chinese and Western professional sphere, as well as companies operating in the construction sector.

Inspired by Place

1

CLB Architects

From transitional to modern, each CLB project, including the ten featured in Inspired by Place, is a unique, original expression of innovation and refinement. Reductive, regionally appropriate palettes, elegant thin rooflines, sleek protective overhangs, roof cut outs, and other signature design moves punctuate the firm’s eloquent and expressive architecture, all complemented perfectly by the projects whose interiors were executed by CLB’s design team.

John Marx’s watercolors are a captivating example of an architect’s way of thinking. Subtle and quiet, they are nonetheless compelling works in how they tackle a sense of place, of inhabiting space while resonating with the core of one’s inner being. There is an existential quality to these watercolors that is rare to be found in this medium.

Building Great Schools for a Great City Julia van den Hout

The New York City School Construction Authority’s (SCA) mission is to design and construct safe, attractive, and environmentally sound public schools for children throughout the communities of the City’s five boroughs. Since its creation in 1988, the SCA has kept moving forward, constantly innovating to ensure that it designs and builds schools that meet the current needs of the City’s students and teachers. In addition to building and modernizing educational facilities, the SCA is invested in developing much-needed resources and capacity building mechanisms for engaging diverse communities in the construction process. The SCA maintains one of the most successful small business development programs in the country and recently established a workforce development and small business initiative for college students. As the SCA celebrates its 30-year anniversary, its primary goal remains the same as on the day of its creation: to ensure that all children in the country’s largest public school system have the facilities necessary to prepare them for the twenty-first century and beyond.

Gesture and Response

William Pedersen of Kohn Pedersen Fox Gesture and Response

William Pedersen William Pedersen of Kohn Pedersen Fox

The work of Kohn Pedersen Fox is international in scope, collaborative in design, and a product of individual voices focused on a single objective—making an architecture, of our time, which creates strong bonds with the the specific place it occupies. While William Pedersen founded the firm, with partners Gene Kohn and Shelley Fox, he never aspired to be a “director of design.” They had the components—with Gene’s entrepreneurial drive, Shelley’s management, and Bill’s design leadership—to be a large firm. “Directing” the work of a large firm was not Bill’s desire, instead he wanted to focus on a body of work which he could call his own. The example that work set would inspire others, and it did. Now there are several voices leading their design—all of them rose to their position within the office. The purpose of this book is to define the work of one of the voices— Bill Pedersen’s. Pedersen has worked with many different designers, in close collaboration, throughout his career, though his work speaks with a singular voice. Here it is represented chronologically and concludes with the latest phase—furniture. Working from the largest scale to the smallest has always been a preoccupation of those who lead design in KPF. Many of Pedersen’s architectural heroes designed chairs, and he strives to follow in their footsteps.

Études

The Poetry of Dreams + Other Fragments John Marx

John Marx’s watercolors, first published in the Architectural Review, are a captivating example of an architect’s way of thinking. Subtle and quiet they are nonetheless compelling works in how they tackle a sense of place, of inhabiting space and time all the while resonating with the core of one’s inner being. There is an existential quality to these watercolors that is rare to be found in this medium. Something akin to the psychologically piercing observational quality of artists like De Chirico or Hopper. As architects strive to communicate their ideas, it is interesting to explore the world of Marx’s watercolors as an example of a humane approach to conveying emotional meaning in relation to our environment. Marx’s subject matter read like “built landscapes” heightening the role of the human made yet wholly in balance with the natural world. This is a message and sentiment that is perhaps more important than ever to relay to audiences. Author John Marx, AIA, is the founding design principal of Form4 Architecture in San Francisco, CA. He advocates for the inclusion of Philosophy, Art, and Poetry in the thoughtful making of place. Keenly aware that architecture is a balancing act between self expression and collaboration, he uses the compelling power of form to create emotionally resonant architecture and urban spaces. John’s design work and writing has been published in over 100 national and international publications. He has widely lectured on the topics of Title: Études Size: 11.5” x 11.5” Square Pages: 160pp on sundance felt Binding: Hardbound Publication Date: Fall 2019 ISBN: 978-1-943532-42-1 Price: $65.00 World Rights: Available

CLB Architects

The philosophy of CLB Architects, Inspired by Place, permeates all the firm’s design work, from public projects to bespoke homes. Their portfolio projects— timeless, thoughtful, distinct, and beautiful—are examples of how to tread softly on the land in some of the world’s most iconic landscapes. They introduce a new approach to form and materiality in a region where the design world is often limited by a nostalgic view of the past. Inspired by Place showcases ten homes by CLB Architects, many of which feature interiors by CLB’s design team; these are always sophisticated yet comfortable and conceived as an extension of the architecture. From a streamlined modern masterpiece on the banks of the Snake River to architecture as connected barnlike structures to a private glass pavilion retreat perfectly oriented for wildlife viewing, CLB’s work references local forms and vernaculars while speaking in a new architectural language for the RockyMountain West. Author Chase Reynolds Ewald is an active freelancer, columnist, and editor focused on architecture, interiors, food, and travel in the American West. A graduate of Yale and the Graduate School of Journalism at U.C. Berkeley, she is the author of ten books, including Rustic Modern, American Rustic, The New Western Home, and Cabin Style.

Designing Change DP Design, Singapore

DPD is an integral part of the Singapore-based international architecture practice, DP Architects and its group of companies. Adept at handling multi-disciplinary large scale projects, DPD works hand in hand with DP Architects to achieve holistic design practices.

Designing Change is the second volume by DP Design (DPD), following Designing Spaces. While the first volume was an illustration of DPD’s expertise in dealing with various types of spaces and uses, Designing Change is an insight into the design thought that guides and inspires the creative approach behind its latest body of works across a variety of building types and scale. A unique and engaging book, Designing Change is a visual discourse into the creative psyche of the interior-architects at DPD. It explores and illustrates how designing an interior space goes beyond a direct, strategic response to a building’s intrinsic architectural form to examine and embody the evolving relationship between people and built environment. Recognizing that change is the only constant in an ever-progressing world, the book aims to simultaneously rethink design and inspire a new paradigm in our design approach and perspective on space. Drawing on over 30 years of experience in the interior design, space planning, and project management industry, DPD combines design concepts and short stories with imagery and illustrations to provide an in-depth look at the fundamentals and perceptions of interior spaces so as to relook the practice of interior design today.

Contributors With a deep concern for the built environment, DP Design (DPD) seeks to create spaces—spaces that are memorable, relevant, and sustainable—and has delivered a sterling international body of works. The design firm takes a holistic approach to interior spaces, a direct response to a building’s intrinsic architectural and formal relationships, endeavouring to preserve and enhance the natural behavior of a building. In doing so, DPD creates environments that seamlessly integrate people, architecture, technology, and the ultimate purpose of the space. Architecturally trained, Mike Lim is the principal designer of DPD and a director at DP Architects. Responsible for the concept design and design development across a wide range of building type, he believes that the commitment to perfection permeates every facet of a designer’s life. Notably, Mike was the interior designer of The Dubai Mall, Doha Festival City (Doha, Qatar), Cinemaxx Junior (Jakarta, Indonesia) as well as prominent projects in Singapore such as Resorts World Sentosa, Paragon Shopping Centre, and the recently completed unique “hotels within a hotel” One Farrer Hotel and Spa, YOTEL Singapore, and Our Tampines Hub, Singapore’s pioneer model of an integrated sports and lifestyle community hub.

Our Voices II: the DE-colonial Project will showcase decolonizing projects that work to destable and disquiet colonial built environments. The land, towns, and cities on which we live have always been Indigenous places yet, for the most part our Indigenous value sets and identities have been disregarded or appropriated. Indigenous people continue to be gentrified out of the places to which they belong and neo‐liberal systems work to continuously subjugate Indigenous involvement in decision‐making processes in subtle, but potent ways. However, we are not, and have never been cultural dopes. Rather, we have, and continue to subvert the colonial value sets that overlay our places in important ways.

The Travel Sketchbooks of Artists and Designers Laurie Olin

This is the first book in a series of books on France by Laurie Olin. For centuries artists and designers have recorded places, people, and life in travel sketchbooks. Over a period of fifty years, Laurie Olin, one of America’s most distinguished landscape architects, has recorded aspects of France: its cities and countryside, streets and cafes, ancient ruins, vineyards, and parks—from humble to grand, things that interested his designer’s eye—taking the time to see things carefully. Paris in its seasons, agriculture in Provence and Bordeaux, trees, dogs, and fountains, all are noted over the years in watercolor or pen and ink. Originally intended for the pleasure of merely being there as well as self-education, this personal selection from his many sketchbooks is accompanied by transcriptions of notes and observations, along with introductory remarks for the different regions included: Paris, Haute Loire, Provence, Haute Provence, Normandy, Aquitaine, and Entre des Meures.

Space and Anti-Space

The Fabric of Place, City, and Architecture Barbara Littenberg and Steven Peterson

These two different spatial models are explored in depth in the eponymous article, “Space and Anti Space,” first published in the Harvard Architectural Review in 1980, which forms the core of the book and postulates that the underlying attitudes toward spatial formation, at both domestic and urban scales, determine our ability to shape place and human experience. In a series of essays, articles, and urban projects extensively illustrated by plans, analytic diagrams, and dramatic images, this book makes a visual and verbal argument for the steps that need to be taken to re-urbanize the city in order to achieve an urbanity consisting of multiple discrete places that depend on the essential concept of contained geometrical space. These spatial ideas are illustrated in this book in three proposals: for Rome, in “Roma Interrotta,” 1979; Paris, the “Consultation Internationale pour L’Aménagement du Quartier des Halles,” 1980; and New York in the “World Trade Center Site Innovative Design Study,” 2002.

This book challenges the conventional idea of what constitutes the physical form of the contemporary city. Observing the absence of extended urban fabrics—the missing urbanism—in the new global cities developed today, it argues that these cities are merely statistical accumulations of density that lack the positive attributes of a genuine urban condition. Cities as urban places cannot be made by individual buildings alone but rather depend on the intertwined combination of an architecture that is bound to the creation of public spaces and streets, and engaged in the structure of urban blocks to form a complex field pattern of interactive solids and voids. Broad in scope, the book explores the nature of the fundamental relationship between architecture and urbanism as one of spatial formation. As an independently designed entity, the city forms the ordering framework in which architecture is partially subordinated to the mutual sustainability of the overall urban fabric. If a new urban architecture is to be an integral constituent of public place making, it must be composed using a radically different paradigm of positive, figurally constructed “space” rather than the indefinite background of “anti-space” as exemplified in the chapter on Mies van der Rohe’s architectural quest for the ineffable modern void.

Working Water

Design Beyond the Garden Wall William E. Wenk

Water is far too valuable of a resource to be disposed as a waste. Working Water presents the work of Denver landscape architecture firm Wenk Associates, highlighting their projects that treat stormwater, and the infrastructure that controls it, as a resource that supports functioning natural systems and enhanced urban open space. Built projects illustrate how stormwater runoff can be directed to support an intimate private garden, to the large-scale redevelopment of derelict industrial lands in Milwaukee organized around a stormwater park and open space system. Planning projects range from a plan for a surface stormwater system developed incrementally for a redeveloping urban district in central Denver, to a multi-generational plan for restoration of the Los Angeles River that will require profound changes in stormwater management policies and practice for full implementation. The final chapter describes the challenges, strategies, and lessons learned over the firm’s 37-year history as part of implementing new approaches to infrastructure design that can withstand the test of time. Author Bill Wenk is founder and president of Wenk Associates, Inc., a Denver-based landscape architectural firm. For over 37 years, Bill has been influential in the restoration and redevelopment of urban river and stream corridors, the transformation of derelict urban land, and the design of public parks and open spaces.

Public Space and Academic Mission in Snøhetta’s Charles Library

LIBRARY AS STOA Kate Wingert-Playdon

Library as Stoa is a reflection on the building design and construction in essays and photographs of Snohetta’s Charles Library at Temple University. The library demonstrates the role of public space and innovation in architecture. By using an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) for the storage of Temple’s entire collection, which includes two million books on site, the Charles Library was designed to balance the amount of space for books vs. people, and significantly increase the social spaces to accommodate student and faculty research and collaboration. Using the models of library as studio and creative commons, it is a place for discovery, creation, preservation, and sharing of knowledge. The library includes university partners and important library functions in strategic locations for improved support services for the university community. University Special Collections, an important institutional asset for the university and the city of Philadelphia, is visible and accessible for visitors from the city community. Snohetta’s design approach took into account the diversity of the university community, the site conditions and the university’s aspirations. The design process included collaboration with the campus community to fully understand the social aspects and future needs of the university. Sited in a prime location on the university’s campus, the library is an inspirational destination for the campus and city communities and serves as a change agent, reflective of the future direction of the university.

Faux Mountains Michael Jakob

Artificial mountains are a worldwide reality. Burial sites use, very frequently, the intimidating shape of the human-made mountain. Incense burners in ancient China evoked the Five Sacred Mountains. Mount Parnassus in Greece became an important element in European garden history and a symbol of the Renaissance. In the Baroque Rome of the 17th century the most important artists worked on the constructions of huge ephemeral mounds in order to express more or less codified messages. The model of the artificial mountain was used as well during the French Revolution: the famous celebration of the Supreme Being took place on a gigantic faux mountain. The history of landscape architecture is characterized by the construction of architectural mounds, often built by using local excavation material. The industrial revolution acted as another source for the rise of an anthropic topography, creating forms, which we do not recognize anymore as totally artificial. Architects have found in the form of mountains a model and a gestalt with which to play in an ironic way. In twentieth-century art, mountains are ubiquitous, culminating in Robert Smithson’s masterful exploration of reversed, displaced, and rebuilt mountains. Michael Jakob’s comparative study is the first one to address this fascinating phenomenon. Artificial mountains are a worldwide reality. Their presence influenced the history of urbanism, architecture, and landscape architecture. Michael Jakob’s study is the first one to address this fascinating worldwide phenomenon stretching from Antiquity to present.

Luis Callejas, Jeppe Aagaard Anderson, and Hanne Bat Finke

Under Under is a publication that links the works and thoughts of practitioners, educators, and researchers in the fields of landscape architecture, architecture, urbanism, and the visual arts. This editorial experiment attempts to reveal images and ideas that have not necessarily had the chance to solidify as built projects or in academically rigorous media. The editors must first select work that they believe deserves some form of inquiry, and secondly, they must attempt to build new knowledge by pairing two different bodies of work or perspectives. For this inaugural edition, we chose to open Jeppe Aagaard Andersen’s archive. Andersen’s influence is not questioned, however, precisely because of his visibility as a practitioner, widely available media usually focuses on his built works. Hanne Bat Finke helps us read his work, also elaborating on his legacy for Danish landscape architecture. Hanne’s own experimental production is presented together with Andersen’s archival material.

An Enterprising Path to Barrio Chino A Story of Barcelona Dr. Peter Cookson Smith

In 1925 a journalist on the Barcelona newspaper El Escándalo used the term Barrio Chino in a somewhat derogatory way to describe part of the older city. While the area in question represented a dystopian underbelly of the city, known for its impoverished living and working conditions together with its “red-light” subcultures, it never existed as a “Chinatown” in either a physical or social sense. However, the name of this mythical community stuck from the 1920s onwards, appearing on maps and descriptions of the inner city but devoid of any hint of Chinese inhabitants or their culture. The book takes this as a starting point to chart the development of Barcelona over 200 years using a series of “diaries” and drawn images. These are set around four generations of a fictional Chinese dynasty and their imagined architectural participation in some of the major events in Barcelona’s modern history. As residents of the Barrio from the mid-nineteenth century, they individually document diverse contributions to the city during periods of dynamic growth. This is set against a backdrop of cataclysmic political change and exemplary forms of urban regeneration which have provided Barcelona with its contemporary “World City” status as it plans for the future.

Dr. Peter Cookson Smith is an architect, urbanist, and founder of the URBIS consultancy in Hong Kong. He is a former professor of architecture and president of Hong Kong’s Institutes of Planning and Urban Design. Between 2014 and 2016 he directed the joint Urban Exchange between Hong Kong and Barcelona.

Native Places

Drawing as a Way to See Frank Harmon

Native Places is a collection of sixty-four watercolor sketches paired with mini-essays about architecture, landscape, everyday objects, and nature. The sketches relate the delight found in ordinary places. The short essays, rather than repeat what is visible in the sketch, illustrate ideas and thoughts sparked by that image and offer a fresh interpretation of ordinary things. The goal of Native Places is, in part, to transform the way we see. Through its pages, barns become a guidebook to crops and weather; a country church is redolent of the struggle for civil rights and human dignity; a highway rest stop offers a glimpse of egalitarian society. Also exploring the belief that hand drawing and writing are not obsolete skills, both disciplines offer us the opportunity to develop a natural grace in the way we view the world and take part in it. Author Frank Harmon, FAIA has designed sustainable modern buildings across the Southeast for thirty years. His work engages pressing contemporary issues such as placelessness, sustainability, and restoration of cities and nature. His buildings are specific to their region, such as the use of hurricane-felled cypress and rock from local quarries to connect the structure to its landscape. Airy breezeways, outdoor living spaces, deep overhangs, and wide lawns embody the romanticism of the South while maintaining a distinguished modernism. Harmon is recognized as a purveyor of good design by his students, peers, and clients. In 2013, Frank received the F.

Place Matters

The Architecture of WG Clark Robert McCarter

The architecture of WG Clark is inextricably grounded in its place, the Atlantic coastal states of the American South. Over the course of his 40-year career as a modern architect practicing in historic contexts, Clark has constructed a small but significant body of work of unparalleled high quality and experiential richness. Clark’s remarkably resolved spatial compositions are formally restrained and contextually appropriate, and, while relatively few in number, have nevertheless exerted an outsized influence on architects around the world. Clark’s regional grounding, slow and measured pace of design, and modest publicity has provided him with the time-in-place necessary for thinking and making at the very highest level. Like the relatively few works of Louis Kahn and Carlo Scarpa, the works of WG Clark have attained canonical status, and his redefinition of architectural design as being grounded in the history of the discipline, as well as in the particularities of its place, has proved to be of ever-increasing relevance to contemporary practice.

Handbook for Regular City Design

Joan Busquets, Dingliang Yang, and Michael Keller

Contributors Joan Busquets, world-renowned urban planner and architect, is the first Martin Bucksbaum Professor in Practice of Urban Planning and Design at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

Urban Grids: Handbook for Regular City Design is the result of a five-year design research project undertaken by professor Joan Busquets and Dingliang Yang at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. The research that is the foundation for this publication emphasizes the value of open forms for city design, a publication that specifically insists that the grid has the unique capacity to absorb and channel urban transformation flexibly and productively. Urban Grids analyzes cities and urban projects that utilize the grid as the main structural device for allowing rational development, and goes further to propose speculative design projects capable of suggesting new urban paradigms drawn from the grid as a design tool. Consisting of six major parts, it is divided into the following topics: 1) the atlas of grid cities, 2) grid projects through history, 3) the 20th-century dilemma, 4) the atlas of contemporary grid projects, 5) projective tools for the future, and 6) good-grid city as an open form coping with new urban issues.

but reflects the dialogue and practice of business leaders, designers, colleagues, and collaborators.

E>Return on Experience will be comfortable on the shelves of designers and artists and equally comfortable for business leaders and educators. It reflects the fundamental belief that design is integral to everything we do; that all human existence has been a result of a progression of successful design outcomes. It is not in the sense that what we have created is exclusively logical and rational but true success has been the result of emotional intelligence and meaning being infused into a new form that has caused us to progress as a species. Inspiration and innovation are difficult to process from a purely logical perspective as it requires a broader view into the way we think and feel things. It is deeply personal and at the same time shared at a social level. In this sense, we naturally view design as possessing enormous value that is an essential part of culture with a broad value and application. Design is a dialogue. This book is not a treatise on do’s and don’ts of design or business. It is a reflection on the nature of how to see design. Design is, and always has been, part of a conversation. As such, this book captures a dialogue that author, Tim Kobe, has been engaged in for over thirty years at Eight Inc. This conversation is more than a single path Title: Return on Experience Size: 6.7” x 9.7” Portrait Pages: 800pp Binding: Softbound Publication Date: Spring 2020 ISBN: 978-1-935935-67-4 World Rights: Available Price: $60.00

This book would not exist without those on the other side of the conversation and is more than a lens of a single or individual point of view. Eight Inc. has been incredibly fortunate to design with some of the most successful people and companies that exist today and much of Eight Inc.’s success has been attributed to its time with Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs. Authors Tim Kobe founded the globally recognized strategic design firm Eight Inc. in 1989. Today, Eight Inc. consists of 200+ strategic designers and business creatives connected across 11 studios, seven time zones, and three continents, and is a leader in innovation and branded experience working with companies such as Apple, Virgin Atlantic Airways, Nike, Coke, Knoll, and Citibank. Roger Lehman is a professor at INSEAD’s Singapore campus where he is the co-founder and director of the Executive Masters in Change (ECM) program. He has been instrumental in helping to integrate psychoanalytic concepts into executive and business practice.

Scent of the Trace Emre Arolat

Scent of the Trace is an exposé of an architect’s inner dialogues during the design process. The book contains a detailed and extensive documentation of the internal struggle to conceptually ground and position three different works of architecture; Sancaklar Mosque, Bergama Cultural Center, and Yalikavak Palmarina. Emre Arolat investigates how architecture can exceed its boundaries by envisioning the interaction between the work of architecture and the community, the unique interpretation of the context and the relation to its physical surroundings. Arolat’s writing shows that works of architecture are palimpsests and as such are devoid of any single message. Accompanied by sketches, drawings, and photographs that give insight into the design process, the book presents the search for an architecture construct that nurtures culture, social interaction, and diversity, fostering relationships where the key to a design is not to be found in its “origin” but in its “destination,” where architecture transforms the destiny of a place. Emre Arolat is the Founding Partner and Lead Designer of EAA-Emre Arolat Architecture, an international design studio with offices in New York, London, and Istanbul. Since 2004, EAA has cultivated a design approach, reconciling issues of identity that are rooted in historical and geographic traditions, yet recognizes the inescapable demands of the contemporary world. Author Born in Ankara, Turkey, Emre Arolat comes from a long family tradition of architects. Since the beginning of his architectural career, Emre Arolat has created an extraordinary body of work combining intellectual and artistic sensitivity and designing buildings large and small, tempered by the tradition and culture from which they spring.

Emre received international recognition early on in his career with Minicity Theme Park for being selected work for the Mies Van der Rohe Award for European Architecture (2005) and the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (2010) with the design for the Ipekyol Textile Factory in Edirne. More recently, in 2018, his Sancaklar Mosque was awarded with RIBA International Prize. Along with his architecture practice, Emre Arolat has held a professorship at the International Academy of Architecture, was one of the curators of the 1st Istanbul Design Biennale, and in fall 2017 semester he was the Norman R. Foster Visiting Professor at the Yale School of Architecture. Arolat’s wide-ranging repertoire includes a marina complex on the shores of Yalikavak, Bodrum (2011–2014); the Antakya Museum Hotel, built above an existing archeological site in Antakya (2014–); the SantralIstanbul Contemporary Art Museum, (2005–2006); and the Dalaman International Airport (1999–2006), among others.

From Fallow

100 Ideas for Abandoned Urban Landscapes Jill Desimini

From Fallow is a curated collection of 100 ideas for abandoned property. Through drawing and text each idea is elaborated and each entry serves both as documentation and speculation. The intention, here, is to think differently about pre-existing conditions and to be particular about them. Desimini offers examples of different spatial characteristics around abandonment in North American legacy cities. The variations are mesmerizingly complicated and varied. A vacant lot is never one thing. Terrains have different scales, elevations, adjacencies, uses, climates, and cultures, and, just as no one territory is the same, so no one idea is sufficient. The goal, in considering these disparate ideas, is not to imagine any singular solution but to understand the many possibilities. Ideas can be tested, substituted, and combined. In creating this volume, I am indebted to the many talented individuals who have tackled the fallow landscape with vigor and optimism. This is a tribute to the people who live and work in the places others have given up on and to the many existing and proposed land-based practices that are viable visions for available land in American cities.

D. Eugene Egger

The Paradox of Place / In the Line of Sight Gregory Luhan

D. Eugene Egger: The Paradox of Place in the Line of Sight showcases the pedagogical sketches of Dayton Eugene Egger, the Patrick and Nancy Lathrop Professor Emeritus, Virginia Tech School of Architecture + Design. To Egger, architectural education is a vibrant vehicle for creating and disseminating knowledge across generations. It simultaneously concerns learning from the past and present’s possible futures. Egger points to lessons learned from Josef Albers related to the “criticality of seeing” and displaying information. For Egger, these discursive departure points engage both the place of potential discovery and the act of applying knowledge to a given situation and context. The book comprises three parts – Gene Egger’s pedagogy as sparked by travels to Europe and North America and its direct impact on students as evidenced through drawing. Essay contributions by Kenneth Frampton, Dayton Eugene Egger, Steven + Cathi House, Mitzi Vernon, Paul Emmons, Mark Blizard, Michael OBrien, Gregory Luhan, and Frank Weiner bridge these three “chapters” and provide critical insights or personal reflections. This publication is unique from other sketch journals in that its essays define the role of the architect and educator in the development of the design student by not only capturing the historical precedent but by producing emotive drawings that “find the line to capture the essence of a place.” Kenneth Frampton’s foreword characterizes Gene Egger’s sketches as images that capture the simultaneity of experience and representation. Frampton describes the graphic content of these images as spatial episodes that visually depict a given place from multiple vantage points. As Frampton noted, these “concatenated Piranesian spaces” are invaluable to the American academic architectural vision.

D. Eugene Egger’s drawings embraced as his medium for teaching students about visualizing the world around them and encourages them by translating our naturalistic world to a two-dimensional rendering through the sketch. Egger states that by bringing students from Virginia to the world narrows the gap between the textbook and the classroom. Egger further describes the experience as an extension of the academic environment that enables deeper learning through sensorial experience, rational objectification, and constructive synthesis. The drawings and notations produced during these experiences not only capture the appearance and significance of a place but also convey its presence over time and offers insights into its reinvention. EDITOR Dr. Gregory Luhan, is the John Russell Groves Endowed Professor of Architecture in the UK College of Design and an affiliate professor with UK’s Lewis Honors College and the College of Engineering Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments. Luhan holds a University Research Professorship and is a nationally recognized architect, scholar, author, professor, and academic leader whose work investigates how design, emerging digital technologies, critical theory, pedagogy, practice, and academic-industry partnerships intersect.

Linear Thought-Condensation Peter Magyar

Unify knowing and feeling with drawing. Since this process is influenced by the genetic memory of our body, the outcome could be unpredictable, mysterious, and timeless. If the drawn investigation questions the fundamentals of knowledge, existence, and truth, then the resulting architecture might embody a new branch of philosophy. It will simultaneously affect our cerebral, tactile, and spatial perceptions and appear as a circumstantial singularity. Author Dr. Peter Magyar, a registered chief-architect in Hungary and in Europe, came to K-State from Florida Atlantic University in Fort Lauderdale where he was the founding director of the School of Architecture from 1996 to 2007. He holds an MArch in Architecture and Urban Design and a doctorate degree of Architecture (both with distinction) from the Technical University of Budapest.

Fifty Paintings Anthony Ames

This book illustrates fifty paintings (1986–2018) with a brief reference on each. The paintings inform or are informed by architectural works by the architect and others. The paintings depict “objecttypes”—general yet specific, generic yet designed, familiar yet estranged. They are “Purist” forms depicted in a still life landscape. The compositions employ overlap, convergence, and diminution to imply depth resulting in the creation of the illusion of perspectival space. However, through the use of juxtaposition, superimposition, and ambiguity of scale the perspectival effect is impaired. The result is a blurring of distinction between foreground and background that encourages a reading of pattern that reinforces the presence of the surface plane. A conflict is encouraged between the deep space and the shallow space—between the creation of implied space through perspective and the reinforcement of the surface plane through pattern. A multiple reading is fostered that rewards the careful observer.

Author Anthony Ames has maintained an architectural practice in Atlanta, Georgia since 1976, although the majority of his work has been elsewhere. He graduated from Georgia Tech and the Harvard Graduate School of Design and has taught at eleven universities and lectured at many more. Ames, a fellow of the American Academy in Rome and of the American Institute of Architects, has received numerous awards and has been widely published. His paintings have been exhibited selectively and sporadically. He has had several one-person exhibitions including those at the Ewing Gallery at the University of Tennessee, the Kibel Gallery at the University of Maryland, the Milstein Hall Gallery at Cornell University, the High Museum of Art, and the Casa Curutchet in La Plata, Argentina.

THE UNIVERSALIST CHURCH Gothic Architecture Churches and University Buildings Asymmetrical and heavily decorated Triggers emotion and imagination VS

What’s different about this building? It’s a style you haven’t seen yet called Gothic. It stands out on the street between its Classical architecture neighbors.

Classical Architecture Public and Commercial Buildings Orderly and symmetrical Triggers logic and reason

Before the arrival of the Gothic Style, many buildings in Europe were dreary. They were dark, cold and damp. The buttresses and pointed arches of Gothic Architecture allowed architects to build higher. This opened up the spaces for sunlight and fresh air.

Do these Building Blocks remind you of anything? Many of these shapes were also used to design castles

1898 William Appleton Potter

Gothic structures were taller , more open, more decorative and flooded with light and air. They were inspiring. No wonder this style is popular for churches, castles and universities.

Design Visualization

Exploring Expressive Visualization Through Art Fundamentals Shima Rabiee

Artistic principles of presentation are the most influential factors in forming an observer’s interpretation of a certain object. Artists use these principles to enhance the communication of their ideas to their audience. This book aims to teach and emphasize the importance of these principles to designers so that they too, like artists, can present their ideas more expressively and communicate more easily with their audience. This book intends to enhance the artistic knowledge and perceptions of designers, which will be realized through observation of the work of masters of art and analysis of the masters’ presentation methods, followed by offering ways of effectively applying these methods to the visualization and representation of design ideas. The book also describes the application of these principles to visualization and rendering, providing step-by-step examples. These examples include both digital and freehand drawing techniques as well as their combinations. The book offers simple steps for the visualization, each of which is taught analytically and illustratively.

Author Shima Rabiee is both a fine artist and creative designer. She has practiced as a designer at collaborative design and planning firms in New York City, San Francisco, Boston, and Houston. As well as her design practice, she has been succeeding as a professional artist and abstract-realism painter, due to her unique style of capturing the essence of forms, and incorporating it into the mood and dynamics of her artworks. She earned her Master’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to that, she earned a Bachelor degree in Architecture. Parallel to teaching at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and leading the students with innovative and critical discussions in design studios, she has participated in a number of conferences and has published international papers.

LEED-AP is a design architect, master planner, and a principal at Torti Gallas and Partners, with a practice that focuses on making places of enduring beauty based upon principles of sustainable urbanism and community enrichment. He lectures on a range of topics for livable communities and sustainable development. O’Looney began his career at Cesar Pelli and Associates, now Pelli, Clarke, Pelli, and subsequently contributed to work at Weihe Design Partnership, now WDG, as well as David Schwarz Architects. Through his career, he has led the design of buildings across the built spectrum including an urban flagship grocer, a train station, a ballpark, multiple mixed-use downtown districts, hotels, high-rise multi-family buildings, simple townhouses, stacked housing, and affordable housing neighborhoods. Brian is a graduate of Yale University and the School of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.

Intended as a comprehensive resource, Increments of Neighborhood is a compendium of recent built work for urban neighborhoods, encompassing the spectrum of building types financed/built by today’s American real estate industry—from single family and townhouses, through “missing middle” stacked housing, stick-built housing, large multi-family, and high-rise buildings. This publication is the only resource in the marketplace that tabulates market-rate products that fill America’s cities, as well as being a comparative resource that shows how these types can be deployed in a way befitting smart-growth using sustainable principles. The only resource of its type, Increments of Neighborhood will demystify the understanding of costs and type, contribute to the public realm for the non-architectural professional, and provide a breadth and range of significant new information for experienced architects who typically specialize in a particular segment of building products such as hospitals or single-family houses, information with which they are frequently unacquainted.

Close to Home

Buildings and Projects of Michael Koch Architect Michael Koch and Gregory Luhan

Close to Home presents the creative, award-winning work of Louisville architect Michael Koch, introducing readers to the simple elegance of his designs and meaningful contributions he has made to the landscape of Kentucky. The projects featured in Close to Home are within a 15-mile radius of where Louisville architect Michael Koch was born, raised, and has practiced for almost forty years. Educated at the University of Kentucky School of Architecture during the Dean Anthony Eardley era, where he was taught by Guillermo Julian de la Fuente, Peter Carl, Stephen Deger, Judith DeMaio, Clyde Carpenter, and Herb Greene, Koch has created a body of work in the Ohio River Valley that is site-specific and expressive, translating Kentucky’s regional idioms into a vibrant modernism. From airy houses that take advantage of Louisville’s Olmstead-designed parks and local materials, to structures that are strikingly adapted to the Ohio River floodplain, to church-inspired metropolitan projects, Koch’s buildings are a memorable part of the city’s landscape.

Swimming to Suburbia and Other Essays Craig Hodgetts

Widely known for his award-winning design work, the Los Angelesbased architect Craig Hodgetts has distinguished himself as one of the key voices of his generation through trenchant commentary and visionary speculation on architecture and design. This volume gathers an array of theoretical polemics on buildings and cities, critical assessments of major projects and personalities, and other writings that showcase Hodgetts’s unique position as both a central figure in the discipline of architecture and a tireless advocate of technological opportunities developed at the fringes of the field. Contextualized with a critical introduction by historian Todd Gannon and illustrated with rare materials from Hodgetts’s archive, this collection cuts a revealing cross-section through a turbulent period during which architecture’s confidence in the Modernist project was shaken, its intellectual energies redirected, and its cultural agenda re-imagined in the face of environmental challenges, technological opportunities, lingering disciplinary traditions, and revolutionary new ideas.

The New Heart of Hong Kong International Commerce Centre Rebecca Lo and SHKP Limited

Kowloon, or Nine Dragons, has historically been the Chinese flip-side to Hong Kong’s Central, where British traders first set up trading companies in the protected Victoria Harbor. After the relocation of Hong Kong International Airport from Kowloon Bay to Chek Lap Kok, the relaxation of building height restrictions allowed for skyscrapers to begin dominating Kowloon’s skyline. The New Heart of Hong Kong chronicles the development of the International Commerce Centre (ICC) and how what was originally just another office building is changing the way Hong Kong residents live, work, play, and perceive West Kowloon as the new central business district. From Governor David Wilson’s 1989 policy address outlining a masterplan for a rail corridor linking a new airport to Central, to KPF’s initial design sketches for what became a mixed-use engineering marvel, to case studies of those who have chosen West Kowloon as their office or home, The New Heart of Hong Kong illustrates how ICC challenges the old order of Central’s dominance. Author A native of Hong Kong, Rebecca Lo grew up in Toronto and holds a Bachelor of Interior Design degree from the University of Manitoba. She returned to Hong Kong in 2000 and contributes to Beijing-based China Daily, Shanghai-based LP Luxury Properties, NYC-based Hospitality Design, and Manchester-based Sleeper.

When Urbanization Comes to Ground CAZA+SURBA

WHEN URBANIZATION COMES TO GROUND is a collaborative research project between the Brooklyn-based architecture studio, CAZA, and think tank, SURBA, an urban research collective spearheaded by Carlos Arnaiz and Peter Rowe. Drawing upon case studies including projects in China, Colombia, and the Philippines, this book works across place, time, and culture to offer an allegorical journey into urbanization at large. WHEN URBANIZATION COMES TO GROUND is a loosely congregated collection of essays that reflect an aggregation of encounters with urban circumstances – physical and immaterial, and structural and affective. From Robots, Utilidors, and a Brave New World to A Third Way Towards Metropolitanism and Tagging Thingness and Scale, this publication questions the role of architecture and its related disciplines in the wake of the master plan. It searches for a field guide to everyday urban life by offering palpable views into the network of relations that characterize this evolving social ecosystem. Through their collective global research projects CAZA and SURBA frame, abstract, poeticize, and render the city as a historical process, a future destination, a production cycle, and a layered landscape of overlapping phenomena. WHEN URBANIZATION COMES TO GROUND does not attempt to cast the city in any one particular ideology, nor does it aim to essentialize or distill urban experience. Instead, this book oscillates from one rendering of urbanization to another, alternating scales and media in order to present the topic of the city and its encapsulated processes through the same phenomena that inform it.

Ennead 9

Ennead Architects

Each book begins with this statement: This is one in a series of books, each of which tells the story of a single building. It is our hope that as these books accumulate alongside our body of work, they, in their aggregate, will form a profile of our design intentions. Acting as a “profile” of a building as well as contributing to the “profile” of Ennead Architects, each book employs initial program studies, schematic sketches, early two- and three-dimensional study models, construction shots, final photography and a personal statement by the designer to present an intimate, insider’s view of the creative process. A supplementary piece written by a critic, historian or client or a “found” text that relates to the designer’s aspirations or building’s program, site, function is typically included. The photographic narrative combines the precision and technical virtuosity of classic architectural photography with more lyrical and personalinterpretations of the building, its context and the people who use it. Author Ennead Architects creates architecture that shapes the public realm: this has been central to our practice since 1963. Our 180-person firm, based in New York City, works primarily with educational, cultural and scientific clients, including some of the most venerable institutions in North America, from Stanford to Yale Universities, from the American Museum of Natural History to the Clinton Presidential Library, from Carnegie Hall to the Standard Hotel Title: Ennead 9 Size: 6.5” x 7.875” Portrait Pages: 368pp over 4 books Binding: Softbound Publication Date: Fall 2019 ISBN: 978-1-943532-46-9 Price: $40.00 World Rights: Available

Doing Almost Nothing

The Landscapes of Georges Descombes Marc Treib

Until now, writings about the architect/landscape architect Georges Descombes have been relatively limited, appearing primarily in publications in Switzerland and abroad as conversations, interviews, and conference proceedings; most of them have appeared only in French. However, during his forty years of practice, Descombes has developed and applied a method unique to landscape architecture, one in which an extremely broad vision, both scientifically and culturally, shapes his thinking and projects. Descombes enters each project by attempting to understand the existing conditions on site and how, using minimal means and interventions, those conditions can be modified to meet the requirements of the program and those appropriate to the natural or urban environment. To some critics it would appear that Descombes has always done too little on and to the site, and in some instances have condemned him for “doing almost nothing.” Although simplicity usually demands greater concentration and study, it often yields greater rewards that result from just that restraint. Perhaps how we approach the world is more important that how we shape the world. Descombes’s landscapes are instructive in this regard. In our current era, the concern for the planet as a whole, its dwindling resources, the despoiling of its air, water, and land, and an exploding population have skewed the profession’s focus toward sustainability, ecology, resilience, and other related concerns. Title: Doing Almost Nothing Size: 8” x 10” Portrait Pages: 240pp Binding: Hardbound Publication Date: Spring 2019 ISBN: 978-1-940743-84-4 World Rights: Available Price: $35.00

In the process, the social role played by landscape architecture has been lessened, if not forgotten, and the role of form, space, composition, and materials—that is to say the aesthetic dimension of landscape design—has become a distant concern. Descombes’s practice strikes that vital balance between effective environmental performance and the ethical creation of beauty. Instead of favoring one pursuit over the other, or relying on a delimiting specialization, he works in a way that may be justifiably regarded as both/and rather than either/or – a comprehensive vision that weds nature and culture, landscape and architecture, people and milieu. Author Marc Treib, is Professor of Architecture Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley, and a historian and critic of landscape and architecture who has published widely on modern and historical subjects in the United States, Japan, and Scandinavia. Recent works include Austere Gardens: Thoughts on Landscape, Restraint, and Attending (ORO, 2016), Pietro Porcinai and the Landscape of Modern Italy (co-editor, Routledge, 2016), John Yeon: Modern Architecture and Conservation in the Pacific Northwest (ORO, 2016), and Landscapes of Modern Architecture: Wright, Mies, Neutra, Aalto, Barragán (Yale, 2017).

Lessons from the Lawn

The Word Made Flesh: Dialogues Between Citizens and Strangers Peter Waldman

In the recurrent darkness of the winter solstice, when the human imagination is stressed to cling onto the few enduring self-evident truths, the prismatic pragmatic mind articulates a primer of archaic if not primal necessities: a hearth and a well. For citizens, if not aspirational revolutionary leaders on the other side of the Atlantic in Arcadia, bringing pragmatic instrumentality and accountability to the heart of darkness in America is the goal where the wild serves the chaos of terra incognita as a paramount existential necessity. For half a century of teaching and practice I have tried to serve in the assigned role of promoting citizenship inspired by Rebecca Solnit’s A Field Guide for Getting Lost as a pre-requisite for a stranger’s curiosity. The tales of “Harold and the Purple Crayon,” “The Three Little Pigs,” “Humpty Dumpty,” and Jack & Jill’s mortal disaster, all foreground these lessons and carols. Joseph Rykwert in The Dancing Column (1996) prefaces architectural space in the acts of dancing as Kwinter hears the ever-present resonating also in archaic shaman chants, and punctuating congregational carols if not massive chora. National anthems and pledges of allegiance are always performed in the spatial and political agora below as well as acropolis above.

Lessons from the Lawn serves as a primer for reading and experiencing architecture, while the Academical Village is a project of enlightenment, curiosity, and mannerist irreverence. This project demonstrates the utility of heuristic thinking serving as an introduction to the central core of the book: the primer of spatial and material elements, which guides individuals and groups to analyze, engage, and initiate the constructed environment. It provides a broad overview to the analytical method Waldman has developed over half a century of teaching and practice, framing its relevance of architecture at the scales of both the garden and the city and the importance of understanding “building” as a verb. Waldman reflects here on how his lessons are all around us, first chanted as nursery rhymes, then synthetic carols, if not complex chora, to reveal the utility of orientation and the profound effects of gravity. Finally, this book lands readers on the Lawn in an essay on the contemporary relevance of Charlottesville’s Landscapes of Aggression of 8/11/2017 and resilience founded on the eschatological catalyst of Fallow Ground. Jefferson kept journals all his life at Monticello and later at Poplar Forest of both natural conditions and human consequences and made plans accordingly of building up and tearing down to make a covenant with the world, again.

Author Peter Waldman is rumored to have quarried mica ever since his early childhood explorations of the wilderness of New York City, more than seven decades ago. He studied architecture from 1961-69, first at Princeton University, and later as a Peace Corps volunteer architect in Arequipa, Peru. He served his apprenticeship in the studios of Richard Meier briefly and more substantially with Michael Graves. Since the 1970s, he has been an architect and educator teaching first at Princeton, briefly at the University of Cincinnati, then at Rice University and currently at the University of Virginia, where he is now firmly grounded in the Piedmont condition. His extensive residential practice has been concerned with the Climatic House confirming the ground rules of the city constructed according to Specifications for Construction anticipating the encampment of Citizens and Strangers. His fables of the Gardener and the Engineer manifest his profound respect for the spirit and resources of the resilient American urban condition.

The Work of Machado & Silvetti Javier Cenicacelaya and Iñigo Saloña The Work of Machado and Silvetti presents the projects designed in the last four decades by these two architects. As active participants in the architectural scene of the ’70s and ’80s, they were intensely engaged in the origins of the debate that changed the course of architectural thinking, and of its pedagogical and professional practice implications. At the emergence of postmodernism, being considered as “outsiders,” they escaped from the reductionist attitudes that either took historical forms for legitimizing architectural practice or renounced to accept that a tabula rasa as unthinkable. They confront the practice of architecture with realism and from a cultural perspective that engages the multiple social and technical practices that bear on the creative process of making architecture: they consider typologies as indifferent to function or to iconographic definition and defend the potential of architectural language and of architecture as a discipline.

Building Research Practices

Connecting Education and Practice Through Architectural Research Andrea J. Johnson and Renée Cheng

Building Research Practices: Connecting Education and Practice Through Architectural Research, is a collection of essays and projects tracing the expanding knowledge loop between architecture practice and architecture education spurred by a growing research culture in the field. Leading thinkers in architectural research linked to academia—including Billie Faircloth, Anna Dyson, Kiel Moe, and Phil Bernstein— offer their varied stances on the current definitions and potentials of architectural research, and outline the scope of the subject through short critical essays. The book then looks at how the Master of Science in Architecture—Research Practices program at the University of Minnesota has advanced interactive exchange between firms, students, and faculty through research, exhibited by the last five years of practice-research projects conducted through the Consortium for Research Practices: AECOM, BWBR, Cuningham Group, HGA, MBJ, Mortenson Construction, MSR, Perkins+Will, RSP, and the University of Minnesota School of Architecture. Research projects cover a range of emerging topics, from virtual reality and Internet of things to rural healthcare and mass timber.

Houses by Patrick Tighe Patrick Tighe

To build a home is perhaps the most primal form of architecture. A place of complete particularity to human existence, houses both influence and incubate individuality. A house situates the fragile territory between container and creator, “the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace” – Bachelard. This selection of 20 houses by Patrick Tighe shows a diverse spectrum of work, all tied by the shared West Coast occupation. Highlighting the dramatic variance that can exist within residential architecture, each project is approached organically and intuitively but held by the familiar siting among the “smoke and goldenness of the late afternoon of time” (Kerouac, Out/West).

Interior Detailing In Contract Works Jimmy F. Doctor

Having gone through more than seven years of architectural and design studies, Jimmy Doctor found that all those years spent studying architecture and interior design did not give him even a glimpse of what goes into detailing a piece of furniture like a sofa, a chair, or a table. In architectural school, lecturers never taught how a timber-paneled wall should be placed against a masonry wall or how a reception counter should be detailed. After graduating, Doctor and his colleagues struggled to understand how these items could be detailed so that a craftsman or carpenter could put them all together. In turn, one could only learn from older colleagues, who in turn had learned from their past experiences. It is apparent that the knowledge Jimmy Doctor has gained over his long career can and will be of use to future graduates—this book has been written to share that knowledge.

MASTERCrit 2015-2017

Jasmine Benyamin MASTERcrit was inaugurated in 2015 as a hybrid series of events that encompassed lectures, critiques, and a charrette. Modeled on the traditional notion of a “Master Class” the workshop enlisted the best graduating students from the school as nominated by the faculty to work in an intensive pedagogic setting with a world-class practitioner. The so-called invited “MASTERcritics” were MOS in 2015, Andrew Zago in 2016, and Jürgen Mayer H. in 2017. In all cases, these architects were tasked with presenting a project brief to the team, which reflected a current pre-occupation in their own discursive production. Students in turn were asked to produce artifacts that manifested their responses. In addition to documentation of the workshops and resultant work, the book includes the briefs and transcripts of conversations.

Swan & Maclaren

A Story of Singapore Architecture Julian Davison

Swan & Maclaren were the most prominent and prestigious architectural practice working in Singapore during the latter part of the British era, that is to say, from 1892, when the firm was founded, through to independence in 1965. As such, the history of Singapore architecture, during that period, is very much the history of Swan & Maclaren. Their list of clients during the period we are considering reads like a litany of the good and the great of Singapore. The output of the firm was extraordinary too, ranging from corporate blockbusters like the Hongkong & Shanghai Bank and the Union Building of the 1920s, to factories, shophouses, department stores, hotels, schools and university buildings, railway stations, churches, mosques, a synagogue, bungalows, and even the odd cattle shed.

An Architects Cookbook

A Culinary Journey Through Design Glen Coben

This book represents the first sixteen years of Glen Coben’s design agency. Coben has had the distinct pleasure of working with some of the greatest chefs of this present time – having had a front-row seat to witness the growth of “farm-to-table” cuisine, “molecular gastronomy,” the burger craze, the Neapolitan pizza craze, the kale-ification of our consciousness, the paleo diet, the juice cleanse, and the rapid rise of food bloggers, social media, the “foodie,” and the deification of chefs into rock stars. What has remained consistent is that the challenge of opening a restaurant has not become any easier. Whether the restaurant is a burger restaurant, a dive bar and taqueria, or a four-star grand Italian destination the stakes are always high for each restaurateur or chef. They have investors, budgets, schedules, and the desire to deliver their own vision of service and cuisine. Each design project is a journey to discover the soul of each project—to tell its story in an appropriate tone of voice that compliments each chef’s vision. Coben’s journey has taken him literally and metaphorically to Mexico, Strasbourg, Paris, Texas, California, the Islands, the Bronx, Queens, London, and all over Italy.

The Fantastic Seashell of the Mind The Architecture of Mark Mills Janey Bennet

When he heard Wright say that seashells are Nature’s perfect architecture, Mark made that idea the foundation of his life’s work. As seashells change their forms to meet the needs of their inhabitants, so Mark adapted structural roof systems to shelter his clients, and he made them spectacularly beautiful. If the sky is Nature’s umbrella above us, Mills’s ceilings were the umbrella over his clients’ lives in their homes. The ceiling revealed the skeleton of the building, exposed, visible from every part of the interior, since the interior walls were partitions that did not interrupt the view of the ceiling system. He used to joke (joking but not kidding) that he put so much thought and care into his roofs because the clients couldn’t hang their knickknacks on it and wreck its design.

Seeking Savannah Dr. Peter Cookson Smith

A disparate but exuberant group of scholars are brought together in Savannah by an eminent professor to explore and debate the history and characteristics of the city and its implications for a twenty-first-century urbanism. This narrative represents a forceful and humorous interplay between formal discussion, informal interludes, irreverent comments, and less than academic relationships. Its serious purpose is to identify the urban challenges facing America in terms of containing and consolidating growth within livable communities. However, like all such participatory events it is also an opportunity for informal personal agendas set against a backdrop of real life events. The text is interspersed with ninety drawings of Savannah, illustrating its unique and multi-layered identity as a potential urban paradigm for the future.

Victorian Summer The Historic Houses of Belle Haven Park, Greenwich, Connecticut Matthew L. Bernard

At the height of the Gilded Age, America’s wealthiest families began to build luxurious summer “cottages” away from the grit and grime of New York, Boston, and Philadelphia in idyllic locales such as, Newport, Southampton, Tuxedo Park, and Lenox. Another place the new American aristocracy settled was in the peninsula of Belle Haven, Connecticut. The New York Times called it, “the flower garden of Greenwich, and, indeed, of the whole Connecticut shore.” Victorian Summer: The Historic Houses of Belle Haven Park, Greenwich, Connecticut, focuses on the first great flowering of Belle Haven, from 1884-1929. Each tells the story of a house, an architect, and the predominant owner. While some of these houses are, sadly, gone or unrecognizably changed, this book does the job of visually preserving them in their their original glory.

Indigeneity and Architecture

Rebecca Kiddle, Patrick Stewart, and Kevin O’Brien

Our Voices: Indigeneity and Architecture is an exciting advance in the field of architecture offering multiple indigenous perspectives on architecture and design theory and practice. Indigenous authors from Aotearoa NZ, Canada, Australia, and the USA explore the making and keeping of places and spaces that are informed by indigenous values and identities. The lack of publications to date offering an indigenous lens on the field of architecture belies the rich expertise found in indigenous communities in all four countries. This expertise is made richer by the fact that this indigenous expertise combines both architecture and design professional practice, that for the most part is informed by Western thought and practice, with a frame of reference that roots this architecture in the indigenous places in which it sits.

APPLIED RESEARCH + DESIGN PUBLISHING Fall 2019 AR+D, or Applied Research and Design Publishing is a thriving editorial platform that creates a space for research-based publications within the fields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urbanism, and Design. With a diverse and talented editorial board consisting of a select group of the brightest practitioners, educators, and design thinkers in the world, we specifically focus on emerging dialogues between diverse modes of applied research that currently dominate a range of architectural practices, and their role in defining new modalities of spatial synthesis best afforded by design. This peer reviewed imprint concentrates on the study of emergent spatial dynamics taking place across multiple scales and geographies, in order to construct a new ground for both established and emerging voices to disseminate their ideas in physical print.

This project proposes new understandings and interpretations of American residential architecture by investigating and graphically illustrating the forms, spaces, and histories of ten residential types.

Way Beyond Bigness is a design-research project that studies the Mekong, Mississippi, and Rhine river basins, with particular focus on multi-scaled, water-based infrastructural transformation. The book proposes a simple, adaptive framework that utilizes a three-part, integrative design-research methodology, structured as: Appreciate + Analyze, Speculate + Synthesize, and Collaborate + Catalyze.

Digital Fabrications is a collection of essays and half-true stories about design software and hardware. Written from the perspective of architectural design, each piece expands on emerging trends, devices, foibles, and phenomena engendered by an increased reliance on interactions with interfaces in the discipline.

Following the example of music publication, Source Books in Architecture offers an alternative to the traditional architectural monograph. Ryue Nishizawa was the Herbert Baumer Distinguished Visiting Professor at the Knowlton School of Architecture during the 2016-17 academic year. Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA : Grace Farms is the thirteenth book in the Source Books in Architecture series.

Way Beyond Bigness

The Need for a Watershed Architecture Derek Hoeferlin

Way Beyond Bigness is a design-research project that studies the Mekong, Mississippi, and Rhine river basins, with particular focus on multi-scaled, water-based infrastructural transformation. The book proposes a simple, adaptive framework that utilizes a three-part, integrative design-research methodology, structured as: Appreciate + Analyze, Speculate + Synthesize, and Collaborate + Catalyze. To do such, Way Beyond Bigness realigns watersheds and architecture across multiple: scales (site to river basin), disciplines (ecologists to economists), narratives (hyperbolic to pragmatic), and venues (academic to professional). The research critiques and recasts Oxford Dictionary’s two very different definitions for a “watershed”: 1) “An area or ridge of land that separates waters flowing to different rivers, basins, or seas”; and 2) “An event or period marking a turning point in a situation in a course of action or state of affairs” and its two very different definitions for “architecture”: 1) “The art or practice of designing and constructing buildings”; and 2) “the complex or carefully designed structure of something.” The book highlights the author’s comprehensive work of over more than a decade, including in depth field research across the Mekong, Mississippi and Rhine, along with a diverse body of academic and professional collaborations, ranging from the speculative to the community-based.

Unresolved Legibility in Ten Residential Types Clark Thenhaus

Architectural legibility requires both visual clarity of a building’s appearance such that its formal, spatial, and material compositions can be comprehended, as well as a certain clarity of the its social, cultural, and political histories. While the term legibility carries a connotation of conclusiveness or objective qualifications, legibility in architecture is most often inconclusive and unresolved. Such unresolved legibility is particularly visible in houses, which are the source of inquiry in this project. This project proposes new understandings and interpretations of American residential architecture by investigating and graphically illustrating the forms, spaces, and histories of ten residential types. Perhaps no genre of architecture has been written about more than “the house.” As long-standing subjects of architectural discourse, cultural reflection, and experimentation, houses represent a confluence of architectural and broader cultural phenomena. The house is not only susceptible to, but in fact requires renewal and re-imagination; as an architectural type it reflects shifting societal values and the constant reconstruction of meaning that this shifting entails. Such social, cultural, political, and contextual circumstances can best be evaluated under the rubric of legibility. While this might at first seem like an objective undertaking, legibility in architecture

Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA: Grace Farms Source Books in Architecture No. 13 Benjamin Wilke and Ryue Nishizawa

Source Books in Architecture is a product of the Herbert Baumer seminars, a series of interactions between students and seminal practitioners at the Knowlton School of Architecture at the Ohio State University. Following a significant amount of research, students lead discussions that encourage the architects to reveal their architectural motivations and techniques. Ryue Nishizawa was the Herbert Baumer Distinguished Visiting Professor at the Knowlton School of Architecture during the 201617 academic year. Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA : Grace Farms is the thirteenth book in the Source Books in Architecture series. Following the example of music publication, Source Books in Architecture offers an alternative to the traditional architectural monograph. If one is interested in hearing music, he or she simply buys the desired recording. If, however, one wishes to study a particular piece in greater depth, it is possible to purchase the score—the written code that more clearly elucidates the structure, organization, and creative process that brings the work into being. This series is offered in the same spirit. Each Source Book focuses on the work of a particular architect or on a special topic in contemporary architecture and is meant to expose the foundations and details of the work in question. The work is documented through early studies, models, renderings, working drawings, writings, and Title: Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA: Grace Farms Size: 8” x 9” Portrait Pages: 144pp Binding: Softbound Publication Date: Fall 2019 ISBN: 978-1-943532-25-4 World Rights: Available Price: $29.95

photographs at a level of detail that allows complete and careful study of a project from conception to completion. The graphic component is accompanied by commentary from the architect and critics that further explore the technical and cultural content of the work. Series Editor Benjamin Wilke is the editor of the Source Books in Architecture series and teaches design studios and seminars at the undergraduate and graduate level at the Knowlton School at the Ohio State University. Contributor Ryue Nishizawa is principal and co-founder of SANAA (with Kazuyo Sejima) and professor of Architecture at Yokohama Graduate School of Architecture. SANAA has been the recipient of some of the most prestigious recognitions in the world, including the Pritzker Prize in 2010. The work of both SANAA and The Office of Ryue Nishizawa has been exhibited and published widely.

Digital Fabrications

Designer Stories for a Software-Based Planet Galo Canizares

another way: to look at the behaviors, phenomena, collective trends, and oddities emerging as a result of global software proliferation. In other words, this book accepts that software is everywhere, and narrows in on a few ways it has taken command of our cultural products. Digital Fabrications is a collection of essays and half-true stories about design software and hardware. Written from the perspective of architectural design, each piece expands on emerging trends, devices, foibles, and phenomena engendered by an increased reliance on interactions with interfaces in the discipline. The essays ask: How do we characterize our post-digital design labor? What are the politics of design software? How is architecture adapting to a world largely dependent on platforms and scripts? What are the spatial mechanisms of the Internet and VR? Using storytelling techniques, this book accepts that software is everywhere, and narrows in on a few ways it has taken command of our cultural products.

Author Galo Canizares is a designer, writer, and educator at the Ohio State University’s Knowlton School of Architecture. His work blends absurdity, genre fiction, world-making, simulation, and parafiction to address issues in technology and the built environment. Galo Canizares is the recipient of the 2016-17 Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellowship, and in 2018 was awarded the 2018-19 Christos Yessios Visiting Professorship at the Ohio State University. His collaborative architectural practice, office ca, won the 2018 Ragdale Ring competition. Foreword by Ellie Abrons Book Design by Anthony Zukofsky

From the perspective of architectural design, a field traditionally associated with sketching and its own myths of creativity, computers are an essential workplace tool. Projects rely on a wide assortment of software packages and standalone applications, but rarely do architects reflect on the structure of those programs or how they have infiltrated our disciplinary conventions. PDFs and JPGs are as much a part of our vocabulary as plans, sections, and elevations. A drawing today might refer to a rendering, a CAD document, a proprietary BIM file, or anything that describes a project visually.

The Urban Design Legacy of Colin Rowe Steven Hurtt, Antonio Pietro Latini, and James Tice

The Urban Design Legacy of Colin Rowe describes the ideas developed and described primarily by Colin Rowe, professor of architecture and head of the Urban Design Studio at Cornell, and additionally by his students, his co-authors, and colleagues throughout the course of the last half of his highly influential career spanning the years 1963 until his death in 1999. From the simplest of techniques regularly used in present day planning, urban design, and architectural analysis and design work to the philosophical and aesthetic ideas related to them, these techniques and ideas inform much of current discussion about the appropriate forms of human settlement, sustainability, and even architectural style. Colin Rowe is acknowledged to be the most influential figure in architectural theory in the last half of the 20th century. Although his contribution to the discipline and practice of urban design is equally important, there is no single text which specifically focuses on his work in this sphere. This book intends to address this omission by critically examining Rowe’s urban design theory and its evolution, which began at the Cornell University Urban Design program in 1963 and continued until his death in 1999. The text features a score of previously unpublished essays by prominent scholars, educators, and practitioners, many of whom were his students or close collaborators. The Urban Design Legacy of Colin Rowe provides a window to explore past, present, and future themes central to Title: The Urban Design Legacy of Colin Rowe Size: 8.5” x 11” Portrait Pages: 508pp Binding: Softbound Publication Date: Fall 2019 ISBN: 978-1-940743-51-6 World Rights: Available Price: $45.00

the discipline of urban design as seen through the critical lens of Colin Rowe and those who continue to define their creative work in relationship to that extraordinary intellect. Contributors Professor Steven Hurtt (University of Maryland); BA, MFA, Princeton; MArch, Cornell Urban Design with Colin Rowe (1966–67). Hurtt and his classmates dubbed Rowe’s developing theories “contextualism.” Intuitively understood, contextualism and associated ideas were quickly assimilated into teaching and practice. Antonio Pietro Latini, DArch, University Rome Sapienza; MArch Urban Design, Columbia University; Architect, Order of Rome: Fellow, Italian National Institute for Urbanistics; twice Fulbright Fellow to the U.S., author of Battery Park City, NY, and a trilogy on urban design. James Tice, BArch and MArch in Urban Design, with Colin Rowe, is professor of Architecture at the University of Oregon teaching studio and theory. He has co-authored books on American architecture and websites focusing on architecture and urbanism in Rome.

Women [Re]Build: Stories, Polemic, Futures is exemplary in its mission to combine in one resource reflections on the renewal of feminist thought in architecture (Framing Stories), challenges to practice made possible by activism (Shaping Polemics), and portrayals of inspiring practitioners who pave the way for future women architects (Building Futures). The goal of this edited book is to increase the visibility and voice of women who everyday challenge the definition and practice of architecture. Women [Re]Build gathers words and projects of leading women thinkers, activists, designers, and builders who have dared to ask, “where are the women?” Where are the women whose architectural work should be celebrated and recognized for its courage and impact; who have cultivated female leadership while challenging the very principles of the discipline they represent; and who’ve asked the most difficult and rigorous of questions of those who build their visions?

Pratt Sessions presents a series of conversations between notable practitioners and thinkers. It is a distributed symposium that is curated and yet open-ended. Based on an ongoing lecture series at Pratt Institute’s Graduate Architecture and Urban Design program, each Session brings together two participants as a means of instigating discourse and dissolving and/or reinforcing the artifice of geographically-based discourse networks. Participants are carefully paired together based on the content of their work and the region in which they reside and/or practices. Participants frame their work around a disciplinary provocation in short, non-standard lecture presentations, and engage in an in-depth dialogue. Pratt Sessions is intended as a book series, each volume featuring six conversations, which originally took place over the course of two academic semesters. The six sessions are divided in two areas of focus, exploring and examining how new mediums and new contexts can be defined, redefined, and understood within the realm of architectural design.

Fresh Water

Design Research for Inland Water Territories Mary Pat McGuire and Jessica M. Henson

Walker & Partners, and served fellowships with the Landscape Architecture Foundation. Jessica M. Henson, RLA is an associate at OLIN, where she is leading the LA County Master Plan for the Los Angeles River. Henson has an MLA from the University of Pennsylvania and BArch from IIT—Chicago.

Fresh Water is a book that addresses regional, territorial, and continental water issues through interdisciplinary design research in landscape architecture. The geographical and hydrosocial context of the major inland (non-coastal) watersheds of the North American continent—the Mississippi, the Great Lakes Basin, St. Lawrence, and the Nelson—remains an under-explored field for design research. Major spatial, temporal, biological, and geological manipulations of water bodies, systems, and flows raise critical questions about how to redefine human-hydro relationships and to reverse the deterioration of freshwater systems across the territory. Fresh Water assembles scholarly papers from designers that reframe complex issues of industrial agriculture, energy production, urban sewersheds, water law, transportation tributaries, and crosswatershed diversions, to propose new inland water futures. Design contributors interrogate the institutional regime and control of inland water, integrating diverse disciplinary knowledge to support multiscalar interventions that challenge land and water policy to consider a range of new and urgent partnerships and projects this century. Authors Mary Pat McGuire, RLA is assistant professor at the University of Illinois—Urbana Champaign, and principal designer at Water Lab.

Working in Mumbai RMA Architects Rahul Mehrotra

WORKING IN MUMBAI IDEAS AND BUILT PROPOSITIONS SINCE 1990

RAHUL MEHROTRA

RMA’s approach to working in Mumbai has been to use the city and region of our operation as a generator of practice. It’s a way for us to evolve an approach, and architectural vocabulary, that draws from a more elastic definition of the profession—one that sees multiple disciplines as being simultaneously valid in engaging with the kinetic landscape of India. Working in Mumbai is not monographic in its format or disposition. Rather it weaves a series of rich narratives around the gamut of issues and questions that intersect at many moments as these different narratives unfold. Architecture, emergent urbanism, critical conservation, research and writing, reuse of urban spaces, and social engagement are some of the issues that become the focus of these narratives. The narratives are richly represented with illustrations from their practice and collaborations as well as other relevant images from across India. Author From a studio established by Rahul Mehrotra in 1990, the firm was re-formed in 2010 as RMA Architects, with studios in Mumbai and Boston, together with a not-for-profit venture RMA Research, an initiative which undertakes specific research projects related to architecture and urbanism.

Ecologies of Prosperity for the Living City

Margarita Jover and Alex Wall

while empowering citizens. The essays point towards another cultural construct of nature to foster an alternative politics of the Anthropocene and offer the potential of digital networks to improve democratic governance.

Ecologies of Prosperity for the Living City assembles key essays and projects to reflect on today’s phenomenon of planetary urbanization. Urbanization is the result of a certain relationship between the territory and the society who inhabits it. Thus, without transforming the way societies inhabit the territory and its intrinsic motivations another type of city-territory cannot be built. The publication collects these motivations that could fuel this transformation and classifies them into three categories: Novel Synergies, Instrumental Commons, and Dispersed Concentrations. Organized in three chapters, the book is an invitation to citizens and urban designers to imagine alternative ways of inhabiting the planet, which can mitigate today’s growing social inequality and ecological impacts. NOVEL SYNERGIES The projects presented in Novel Synergies demonstrate emergent design tactics to adapt to climate change, reorganize food production, and manage forests prone to fire, while the essays reflect on the importance of urban metabolism and thermodynamics for a renewed discipline of urban design. INSTRUMENTAL COMMONS The projects presented in Instrumental Commons demonstrate emergent design tactics that offer alternatives to market-based development to achieve more biodiverse habitats and public spaces Title: Ecologies of Prosperity Size: 6.5” x 9.5” Portrait Pages: 350pp Binding: Softbound with flaps Publication Date: Spring 2019 ISBN: 978-1-940743-50-9 World Rights: Available Price: $40.00

DISPERSED CONCENTRATIONS Urbanization is the expression of our western neoliberal capitalist model of progress that materializes on increased scale of infrastructures supporting the flow of resources across the globe. In industrialized societies we see projects of redevelopment and reuse; but most relate to animating capital accumulation in the form of housing and commercial infrastructures. In the exploding cities of Asia, Africa, and South America, urbanization occurs either under market-based logics with impacts on forests and agricultural land, or as slums without the necessary infrastructure on unstable lands such as rivers, streams, and coastlines. Authors Margarita Jover, architect and urbanist is associate professor of Architecture at Tulane University. She is the co-founder of aldayjover, architecture and landscape, a research-based practice focused on innovation. The office is particularly renowned for its leadership in a new approach to the relationship between cities and rivers, in which the natural dynamics of flooding become part of the public space. She is author of the book The Water Park (Actar, 2008). Alex Wall, architect and urbanist is Design Critic in Landscape Architecture and co-area head of MDes Urbanism – Landscape – Ecology at the GSD, Harvard University. He was professor of practice, UVA School of Architecture (2015-2018). Previously he worked at OMA and was a professor of International Urban Design and Planning at KIT, Germany. His books include Cities of Childhood (with Stefano de Martino, 1989), and Victor Gruen (2005).

Zhengzhou

From a Rail-City to a Metro-polis Joan Busquets and Dingliang Yang

The book investigates the metro and its contribution to the city not only as a functional infrastructure but also as an urbanistic project with the potential of transforming the urban space through an extreme case of Zhengzhou, which holds arguably one of the most important infrastructural histories in China. A city based on railway is switching into a new era focused on the metro, which is going to both strengthen its old city center and further serve as the new district development and new urban spine. The book contains the systematic research on the urbanistic capacity of the metro through the qualitative and quantitative analysis and the speculative design for the city around the metro. Contributors Joan Busquets, a world-renowned urban planner and architect, is the first Martin Bucksbaum Professor in Practice of Urban Planning and Design at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Dingliang Yang is an instructor in Urban Planning and Design at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He is an architect, urban designer, and the founding partner of VARY Design. His works are interdisciplinary and dedicated to critical research and crossscale innovative design as responses to different urban issues during cities’ developments and regenerations. His works also have been widely published in media including Archdaily, Dezeen, Archinect, and Architectural Review, as well as exhibited in the Venice Biennale, Title: Zhengzhou Size: 11” x 11” Square Pages: 180pp Binding: Softbound with flaps Publication Date: Spring 2019 ISBN: 978-1-941806-78-4 World Rights: Available Price: $29.95

He has directed, with Robb Moss, the feature documentary films “Secrecy” (2008) and “Containment” (2015).

Based on documentation originating in the environmental sciences, history of science, philosophy, and art, Architecture of Nature/ Nature of Architecture explores the materiality and the effects of the forces at play in the history of the earth through the architect’s modes of seeing and techniques of representation. This book presents the research work developed for over the past eight years in the Advanced Research graduate studio “Architecture of Nature/ Nature of Architecture,” created and directed by Diana Agrest at the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of the Cooper Union. Architecture of Nature departs from the traditional approach to nature as a referent for architecture and reframes it as its object of study. The complex processes of generation and transformations of extreme natural phenomena such as glaciers, volcanoes, permafrost, and clouds are explored through unique drawings and models, confronting a scale of space and time that expands and transcends the established boundaries of the architectural discipline.

Not Interesting

On the Limits of Criticism in Architecture Andrew Atwood

Not Interesting proposes another set of terms and structures to talk about architecture, without requiring that it be interesting. This book explores a set of alternatives to the interesting and imagines how architecture might be positioned more broadly in the world using other terms: boring, confusing, and comforting. Along with interesting, these three terms make up the four chapters of the book. Each chapter introduces its topic through an analysis of a different image, which serves to unpack the specific character of each term and its relationship to architecture. In addition to text, the book contains over 50 case studies using 100 drawings and images. These are presented in parallel to the text and show what architecture may look like through the lens of these other terms. Author Andrew Atwood, is assistant professor at UC Berkeley and practices architecture between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, teaching at both SCI-Arc and USC. His work centers on techniques of representation as historical and conceptual instruments and how they specifically relate to the production of architecture and architectural pedagogy. His machines, drawings, and other works have been exhibited widely, including shows at the Beijing Biennale, the Pacific Design Center, and the SCI-Arc Gallery. Atwood holds a Master of Architecture from Harvard GSD and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Richmond.

Be Seated Laurie Olin

On the my first trip to Europe as a young architect in 1967 I experienced an “ah hah” moment visiting Paris when I encountered the public parks and their design, in particular their seating, cafes and amenities, as well as the civic infrastructure—boulevards, streets, canals, sidewalks, bridges, quais, and promenades. It had a profound effect upon me, and eventually I moved into the field of landscape architecture, leading to several years of living in Rome and southern England, including prolonged stays in Paris and London. In Be Seated Laurie Olin writes of his long interest in public seating in parks and civic spaces sharing his insights into seemingly ordinary elements of these places and actions of our individual lives and experience along with his concern for the importance and effects of public seating in the conduct and potential of our role as citizens and the establishment of place and community. Discovering both the extraordinary in the ordinary, along with the ordinary in the extraordinary, Olin shares examples of his experience as a landscape architect, and the theory, craft, and role of seating in a number of prominent civic places, historically, and some of those his firm and others have designed. Accompanying the essays are drawings and watercolors by Olin that create a dialogue between writing and image, supplying further richness to the author’s insights and point of view as a designer.

The Spoils of Dust

Reinventing the Lake that Made Los Angeles Alexander Robinson

Once the third-largest lake in California and among the world’s greatest sources of dust, for decades the dried Owens Lake was merely a footnote to the most notorious water grab in modern history. Now, the desert lake has been reassembled—not refilled—to redeem its lost value without returning Los Angeles’s main water supply. In The Spoils of Dust, this bargain redemption and its surprise conjuring of an extraordinary landscape, is the backdrop for investigating contemporary relationships between landscape architecture, engineering, and perception. The Promethean terrain makes legible the frameworks we use to reinvent nature in the Anthropocene, revealing itself as a monument to the prismatic modes by which we know landscapes today. Almost by accident, this has made select landscape values the linchpin for major water resource decisions, thrusting landscape architecture into a consequential position. Answering the challenge, the book concludes with a speculative atlas and robotic tool for an imaginative and advanced approach to dry lake design.

Computational Drawing

From Foundational Exercise to Theories of Representation Carl Lostritto

Computational Drawing explores computation, specifically the craft of writing computer code, as a medium for drawing. Exercises, essays, algorithms, diagrams, and drawings are woven together to offer instruction, insight, and theories that are valuable to practicing architects, artists, and scholars. This book can serve as a primer for those new to programming or motivation and context for those with experience. “Computing” and “drawing” are both deeply historical and loaded terms. Although digital media is often positioned in opposition to the “manual” act of drawing, the broader territory of “computing” includes matters of language, rules, procedures, and orders that are very much compatible with the presence of ink on paper. Indeed, the nature of drawing—a temporal medium governed by marks that can be precisely defined, but not easily edited—provides welcome structure for computational methods. Computational Drawing begins by unpacking definitions. How has the definition of drawing changed over time? What is the precise technical and cultural difference between a drawing, a model, and a model of a drawing? Why is it important to distinguish between a drawing and an image, or a program and an algorithm? Subsequent chapters address strategy, the role of machines, issues of authorship, and the disciplinary ways architects read and Title: Computational Drawing Size: 7” x 9” Portrait Pages: 292pp Binding: Hardbound Publication Date: Spring 2019 ISBN: 978-1-940743-26-4 World Rights: Available Price: $45.00

A Landscape Inventory Michel Desvigne Paysagiste

A Landscape Inventory is a richly illustrated and elegantly designed manifesto on landscape experimentation, the work of the internationally renowned architect, Michel Desvigne. As an “antimonograph,” this publication is not comprehensive and projects are not discussed in depth. Instead, it features a composite view of elements such as tree pattern and density across scales, from diminutive urban courtyard to territory, to reveal the weight of planting and material choices in shaping landscapes, irrespective of design language. Highly idiosyncratic, A Landscape Inventory offers a broader reflection on how to present and represent landscapes, organized in two parts – equally casual and purposeful. The first discusses Desvigne’s trajectory, influences, and design method; the second is an inventory of elements, a contact sheet of details to be assembled and reconfigured without prescribed order. Both focused and panoramic, Desvigne’s antipathy for “recognizable design” is revealed with his ambition to resist political shifts and master planning with a panoply of landscape strategies such as pilot, demonstration garden, and prototype. Intended to be of great interest to those concerned with the shaping of the environment, this publication can be used as a thesaurus of landscape components – a quick reference to trigger the design imagination of students and other curious individuals.

over millennia), and the experience of habitation (interior atmosphere, circulation, functional details), the project develops an alternative understanding of the historical artifact and of its role in contemporary design.

This publication documents Trajan’s Hollow, a transformative reproduction of Trajan’s Column in Rome, to address issues of critical importance in contemporary architectural practice: a reconsideration of architectural poché (both programmatic and material), the use of scale shift as a tool for transforming shape and content, and the role of subversive reconstruction in an era of digital scanning and replication. The publication offers an alternative model for the close reading of historical artifacts through an analysis of Trajan’s Column and its material progeny, including the casts and copies of the column produced over 2,000 years and contemporary reconstructions of the Column executed by the author while in residence at the American Academy in Rome. Although this second-century monument located in the heart of Rome has been the object of hundreds of years of study, Trajan’s Hollow uncovers aspects of the Column curiously omitted amidst all this attention, manifesting the lacunae in various paradigms of historical inquiry: this work rereads the Column and its legacy through the simple act of prioritizing the embodied occupation of its interior over the analysis of its exterior narrative frieze. By focusing on traces of workmanship (chisel marks, seam lines, tool dimensions), material attributes (provenance, behavior, constraints, change in qualities

From Coyote to Anansi to Shakespeare’s fools, the trickster holds the trump card when the chips are down, the stakes are high, and the owner of the casino is the president of the United States. We posit the wicked pleasures of the trickster tale as an enticing alternative to dreary disaster-capitalist narratives, technocratic solutionism, and universalist fictions of authority, progress, unity, and truth. This issue of Lunch 13: Mischief is a collection of articles, letters, manifestos, anti-manifestos, graphics, games, and narratives that approach design more impishly than urgently, that uproot assumptions that solutions are the solution, that wiggle under the garden fence and leave the farmer with a fistful of fur—but no bunny.

Monotown

Urban Dreams Brutal Imperatives Clayton Strange

Monotown: Urban Dreams Brutal Imperatives examines the post-industrial transformation and transnational legacy of single industry towns, which emerged as a distinctive sociopolitical project of urbanization in the Soviet Union during the 1920s. Monotowns took form through the teleological establishment of industrial enterprises strewn across remote parts of the Siberian hinterland around which cities had to be built in order to support a labor force. This model entailed the relocation of vast populations, which would require services, housing, and social and physical infrastructure, all linked to a given industrial enterprise. By examining the ways in which monotowns have adapted over time in this expanded field, this publication establishes a broader yet more specific dialog about the challenges faced by towns within this particular single-industry etymology.

Mediating Environments Leena Cho and Matthew Jull

Mediating Environments examines fundamental and radical environmental conditions in the Arctic and provides a spectrum of innovative design approaches and spatial outcomes. Climate organizes and sustains a broad range of activities in the Arctic, and it will dictate the future transformations in northern urban landscapes and their metabolic operations. As such, arctic urbanism must take into account the varied nuances of weather phenomena that are deeply engrained in everyday living practices and biophysical fabrics. By revisiting and reconfiguring the intersections between environmental and design systems, this publication aims to expand conceptual strategies in the arctic beyond the modes of insulation, stabilization, and optimization while repositioning the region as a central figure within the global network of exchanges. How can the “arctic wall” as a defining feature of northern architecture be renegotiated? Can design, whether it is pavement assemblies or building foundations built on permafrost, escape the confines of technical precedence aimed to resist instability, and instead work with—take advantage of—dynamic environmental mechanisms, such as thermal cycles of ground, pronounced in the region? This study is not an argument against engineering

Introducing

Short Essays on Influential Thinkers and Designers in Architecture David Erdman

Introducing, Short Essays on Influential Thinkers and Designers in Architecture—a collection of 18 short essays developed by designer and educator David Erdman—suggests that short-form writing might serve as the proper vehicle for architectural discourse to flourish in the 21st century. Speculating that concise pieces of information attributed to the blogging and tweeting generation of architects is the contemporary format for the delivery of critical discourse, Erdman uses his essays to illustrate how an iterative approach to short-form writing might be the most efficient way for architecture to open new critical dialogues. Introducing further suggests that discourse is no longer (and will not be in the near future) delivered in extended, holistic polemical packages. Instead, Erdman posits that precise, undiluted snippets of discourse, which can be formed into broader strains of thinking by the user, or audience, simulate an “open source” information platform that is adept to the contemporary subject and architectural discipline, would be more suitable.

Pratt Sessions Volume 1

The Pratt Institute Graduate Architecture and Urban Design Program

Pratt Sessions is intended as a book series, each volume featuring six conversations, which originally took place over the course of two academic semesters. The six sessions are divided in two areas of focus, exploring and examining how new mediums and new contexts can be defined, redefined, and understood within the realm of architectural design.

Outside the Skin

Systems Approaches to Society’s Larger Structural Issues Darla V. Lindberg

Systems dynamics are full of shocks to the system. Whether we are witnessing the physics of a rational system or the profundity of an irrational system, the shocks come with a sense of, “you mean you can do that?” Outside the Skin examines systems dynamics from the perspective of my own triangulated model comprised of common environments (those shared environments at risk for over-use or degradation), the institutions we design to manage those environments, and the human behavior associated with our investment in the triad. The feedbacks between the three comprise the policy arena for collective decision-making and form a backdrop for shaping personal actions. Beautifully illustrated with student case study research covering a range of topics from the past twelve years, the work is written for a wide audience including academics, researchers, designers, and concerned citizens.

57 Pavilions PennDesign

57 Pavilions is a 21st-century manual documenting architectural design research at PennDesign, examining new potentials for part to whole assemblies where experiments in material expression, morphology, performance, and culture fuse with advanced digital design processes and fabrication to produce full-scale architectural consequences. Through the presentation of 54 half-scale pavilion projects and three full-scale pavilions, a novel approach is laid out for generating higher ordered physical assemblies. The formations produce a new role of parts, material processes, and aggregations yielding a more autonomous character as discrete objects in a larger assembly. As the pavilion research moves into the world in full-scale installations, these new part-to-whole relationships provoke unexpected engagement with occupants, the environment, and the larger cultural context.

New Essentialism Gail Peter Borden

New Essentialism: Material Architecture examines how architecture engages material to create effect through five critical historical thresholds represented by analytical precedents coupled with projective experimental design project families. Unpacking the fundamental methodologies of their geometric, material, spatial, and effectual sensibilities, each threshold builds an examination that reveals the essential methods and processes of design, illustrating the basis for the argument for a New Essentialism: its characteristics, methods, and the sensibilities that mark its definition.

Rome

Urban Formation and Transformation Jon Michael Schwarting

In this book, formation is ideal and utopian thinking, and transformation is the adaptation of the ideal to the real or existing conditions. The book examines the dialectical relationship of these in the creation of the city. The subject is a contextual theory of urban design, utilizing Italian Renaissance and Baroque architecture and urban development of Rome, as a case study. It demonstrates the complexity of Roman urbanism and the inter-relationship and role of Roman architecture to its urban context. The theory of urban “contextualism” has not been adequately discussed and presented in regards to this historical city. Why it is important as a theory and as a method for designing Roman cities today? The book is an exploration and demonstration of urban analysis and visual diagramming, and an urban and architectural analysis of significant Ancient, Renaissance, and Baroque historical developments in the great city of Rome.

Fronts

Security and the Developing World Ersela Kripa and Stephen Mueller

Fronts uncovers a growing geography of codependence between the global security complex and the urban morphologies of the developing world which it increasingly incriminates. Military training sites, and the real-world informal environments they replicate, provide a lens through which we can better understand the shape of the city to come. While the world continues to urbanize, military doctrine has recently and dramatically shifted to view the world’s cities as suspect sites of potential aggression. As the majority of new urban life will manifest as informal development, the world is now more than ever explicitly divided in two camps – those who view the informal city as an opportunity, and those who view the informal city as a threat.

Street Culture Seleen Saleh

Street Culture is a stunning collection of photographs representing women and men of color who exhibit a unique style. Seleen Saleh’s photographs reveal individuality, fearlessness, and creativity in the most vibrant beings who collectively represent street style. This style is as varied as the people; it is a personal expression that changes day to day. It is an expression of a person’s culture, mood, influences, and aesthetics. Street style originated in the street where top designers look for inspiration for their next collections. The book preserves the integrity of street style and features some of the muses that have been forgotten or were never acknowledged. In the book Seleen combines photographs from her work at Essence Magazine with new images of jaw-dropping, creative and colorful moments. As a lover of fashion, art, and people, Seleen brings out the authentic nature of these known and unknown muses. Each person depicted here can be considered a brilliant artist in his or her own right. These portraits were taken in New York City—the perfect global destination—diverse and open and where people are not afraid to tell you who they are. There is an underfed audience for this book; the world is waking up and wants to see more diversity and more eclectic styles. Author Seleen Saleh in her younger years, spent years painting fashion spreads and collecting inspiration from magazines and the world around her. In school at the Art Institute of Philadelphia she merged her love of fashion and photography. It was during this time that she began to develop her bold and vibrant style.

Her editorial work has been featured in magazines such as British Vogue, People, Essence, Fault, Gilt, as well as gracing the cover of Footwear News. In addition to her own projects as a fashion photographer, Seleen began working at Essence Magazine in 2009. There, she helped develop the “Street Style” section of the magazine’s website, which boasts 658K unique visitors every month. Seleen enables her subjects to show their best selves. She takes photos of a snippet of time which immortalize her models making them bigger than life. She enables her viewers to experience and live in and through all her subjects. She has made it a priority to create and foster relationships with all these beautiful people. She cultivates connections while generating exponential exposure for her evolving brand. Her highly praised work stands as a divine tapestry of culture and sensuality.

Knifed Watercolors Marian Christy

It happened to one artist in one magnificent flash, in one inconsequential basement studio, in one precise magical stroke. Without looking, Christy reached for a brush and, instead, a deity plunked a clumsy old palette knife in her right hand. Without thinking, and because she was exasperated with the easel work staring back at her, she x’d out the still-wet painting, turning it into trash. Frustration quickly turned to awe. Quivering squiggles of watercolors played among themselves, creating mesmerizing shapes and scapes of their own making. One thundering thought suddenly grabbed her imagination: “What if I took control of the knife and painted a whole watercolor with palette knives and a puddle?” A decade of trials and errors, of failures and successes, has catapulted her distinctive watercolors to a new, original, contemporary 21st-century style called “Knifed Watercolors.”®

Author Marian Christy was an award-winning Boston Globe writer-editorcolumnist for 26 years, retiring in 1991. During her tenure, she was nominated twice for the Pulitzer and is the only three-time winner of the prestigious JCPenney-University of Missouri Award. Her papers are collected at Boston University’s Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center. She has published four books on journalism and is fiddling with fiction. Christy has been a watercolor artist since her teenage years. Now in her eighth decade, after many years of painting with brushes, she has emerged as the pioneer who invented Knifed Watercolors.®

A Teenage Boy’s Story of Survival Mark Koperweis

Experience firsthand what it’s like to struggle for your life in one of the most diabolical and murderous events in human history—The Nazi plan to exterminate every last Jew in Europe. Gain insights as to why the Nazis, and Hitler in particular, hated the Jews, making them the enemy of society, and labeling them Untermenschen—subhuman.

In Every Last Jew, Mark Koperweis beautifully retells his father Henry’s amazing story of survival that takes you on an unimagineable journey that is up-close, personal, and in full living horror. When you emerge, you will never see the world, or your life, in the same way. It will change you, as it did Henry, forever.

Author Mark Koperweis is co-founder and executive director of the Henry Koperweis Foundation for Holocaust Education, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the atrocities committed by the Nazis against the Jews of Europe. He lives in Oakland, California, where he owns and operates a successful window coverings business—draperyGuru.® This is his first book, compiled from hours of recorded interviews with his father Henry—the subject of this memoir.

Yoga and the City Alexey Wind

Living in a big city, it’s very easy to lose oneself in the chaos of our success-driven culture. Big cities are a melting pot of everyone and everything, mixing cultures, traditions, lifestyles, opinions, and values. To stay true to the self in this huge ocean of thoughts and ideas, one has to know who he or she really is, and embody strength and spiritual growth. Yoga and the City photographically documents a variety of people who are committed to yoga philosophy and yoga lifestyles in big cities – people who live in the middle of the hustle, but manage to maintain their harmony and happiness. It doesn’t matter what is surrounding them, what really matters is how they look at everything around them. Yoga and the City combines art, spirituality, and sport, being a reflection of strength and power—strength to overcome adversity and find balance while living in a fast-paced environment. Yoga is a way to find alignment, to become closer to your spiritual core.

Liquid Poetry

The Wonder of Water Patrick Macrory

Patrick Macrory describes himself as keen but not particularly skilled photographer. Ten years ago he was taking photos of two of his grandchildren in a water park in Oregon, and as an experiment he took a few photos of a fountain at very high speed (1/4000th) and with a long focal length (400mm) (the first two can be found in this book). He was surprised and pleased by the results, and since then has been taking photos of fountains whenever he can. Some of his best are in this book, each accompanied by quotations about water by authors and poets throughout the ages, ranging from Heraclitus to Conan Doyle and from Philip Larkin to Yoko Ono.

A Fantastic State of Ruin

The Painted Towns of Rajasthan David Zurick

A Fantastic State of Ruin tells the story of the painted towns of Shekhawati in rural Rajasthan, India. These tiny settlements owe their origins to the opium and silk caravans that once crossed the Thar Desert. Prosperous traders financed the construction of ornate houses in the towns and commissioned visiting artists to decorate them with exquisite murals depicting local life and society. For centuries, the painted buildings served the towns as trading houses, pleasure palaces, temples, caravansaries, and private homes. Following independence, the descendants of the merchant families left Shekhawati for India’s burgeoning cities, abandoning their opulent structures. Some were left in the charge of caretakers; squatters took up residence in many; most simply remain vacant. The buildings have slowly deteriorated over time, ravaged by climate and neglect, and now lie scattered among the desert settlements as an elegiac collection of beautiful living ruins—a crumbling open-air gallery set amid the ordinary affairs of small town life. This book portrays the fascinating ruinous beauty of the painted towns, and, along the way, provides an intimate look at life and landscape on the arid fringes of Rajasthan.

A Life Among Fishes The Art of Gyotaku Christopher Dewees

The book presents Dewees’s half-century of printing fish and shellfish in full color. We follow his evolution from being exposed and fascinated to gyotaku as a graduate student to his status now as an internationally recognized master in the field. He documents his journey and growth by sharing fifty years of experiences and adventures. In recent years Dewees has done more writing, and these stories and poems are linked to his art.
