The dwellings that have resulted are as different as the people that have built them, the social norms that prevailed at the time and place in which they were built and the natural environment that they adapted to. Studying them now in a comprehensive way allows us to understand the social, political, economic and religious conditions that existed for their inhabitants.

Free of the jargon that all too frequently characterizes some of the contemporary writing on architecture, Architecture Today briefly examines the background to the architecture of the latter half of the century, and explores contemporary styles and movements theme by theme. The work of architects from all over the world is analysed, and their most original, influential and challenging works are illustrated, indicating the radical changes that have occurred in architecture in the last forty years."

Although not by any means anti-modern, many of the key tenets of the ecological philosophy - sustainability, energy efficiency, harmonious relationship with the environment, a focus on suitability of building types for specific conditions - always stood in apparent contrast to the sweep of science-led 'progress' that characterized much of the Modern Movement. Today, however, in a world increasingly awake to environmental damage, the visionaries of the past are vindicated to the point where yesterday's eccentricities are today's legal requirements, and every architect has an obligation to the environment as well as to his or her client." "After an introduction to the terminology of ecological architecture - including terms such as 'green' and 'sustainable' - the book is organized into three parts. Part I identifies the recurring themes in ecological architecture. Part II features twenty-five case studies each focusing on a specific architect, movement or topic. Some of the names are familiar in this context - Rasem Badran, Kenneth Yeang, Hassan Fathy - but there are also plenty of surprises - Le Corbusier, Buckminster Fuller, Rudolf Schindler. The third part of the book looks to the future and to where ecological architecture might go next as it struggles to deal with global urbanization." "A decisive step in the rewriting of the history of modern architecture, this book is essential reading for practitioners and students of architecture. As an urgent wake-up call concerning the state of our built environment, it will be of interest to everyone who cares about the future of our planet."--Jacket+-+056798550547118ocn031687701book19940.59Steele, JamesEames House : Charles and Ray EamesCriticism, interpretation, etcPart of a series of technically informative monographs embracing a broad spectrum of internationally renowned buildings.

The ideas he formulated before his death in 1989 have become key elements in the global architectural agenda, with his influence being particularly profound in the developing world. Fathy's buildings are found all over the world, from Egypt to India to New Mexico. The author was able to conduct extensive interviews with Fathy himself before he died, as well as with clients, family, disciples and friends. The author's research in Cairo and Greece (where Fathy worked from 1957-1962) uncovered many previously undocumented projects and he has drawn on the architect's personal notebooks and journals. Fathy's entire career is chronologically surveyed from his graduation in 1926 to the most productive period of his life - the two decades after his return to Egypt in 1962+-+317755873536016ocn029400265book19930.73Steele, JamesSalk Institute : Louis I KahnHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+696793962532433114ocn040602389book19980.59Steele, JamesPierre KoenigHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcDesigns and plansKoenig designed some of Los Angeles' most admired houses and was a pioneer of what came to be described as the 'Case Study House Program'.
