Imperfect health : the medicalization of architecture ( Book )
10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 175 libraries worldwide
As health becomes a central focus of political debate, are architects, urban designers, and landscape architects seeking a new moral and political agenda to address these concerns? Imperfect Health looks at the complexity of today's health problems juxtaposed with a variety of proposed architectural and urban solutions. Essays by Margaret Campbell, David Gissen, Carla C. Keirns, and Sarah Schrank deal with different aspects of the topic of health in the context of architecture such as: "An Architectural Theory of Pollution" and "Strange Bedfellows: Tuberculosis and Modern Architecture-How 'The Cure' Influenced Modernist Architecture and Design." This book is published in collaboration with the CCA, Montreal on the occasion of the exhibition Imperfect Health: The Medicalization of Architecture, curated by Giovanna Borasi, CCA Curator of Contemporary Architecture, and Mirko Zardini, CCA Director and Chief Curator

Bolles + Wilson : Nieuwe Luxor Theater, Rotterdam by Lars Lerup( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
"This building, opened by the Dutch Queen in April 2001, is a theatre for musicals, concerts and opera with a long tradition deeply rooted in Dutch popular culture. The Bolles + Wilson design, which won the original competition against such Dutch luminaries like Koolhaas, Hertzberger or Christianse, responds to the multiple orientation of the harbourside site, radically reconstituting theatre plan form and organisational logistics, with back-stage facilities at the front of the building and delivery trucks routed through to a first-floor stage. A wrap-round red facade encloses visually dramatic foyer sequences like a stage curtain; at the same time it presents the Luxor as a leading actor in Rotterdam's new docklands district of Kop van Zuid on a wider urban stage. This>>house of illusion<<is a full-scale camera obscura with spectacular bridge, city and harbour panoramas choreographed into the unfolding interior landscape." "The Luxor is a significant milestone in the oeuvre of Bolles + Wilson. As a major public building it pursues themes first tested in the 1993 new city library in Munster: a characteristic plan form, an intervention that redefines its context, and a synthesis of the abstract with a spatial warmth, an ambience that communicates directly and subliminally to a wide audience base. The architecture of this German/Australian duo does not fit easily into conventional architectural genres. Smallness, intimacy, and precise details characterise their work, just like an increasing number of urban interventions that have made a major impact on cities like Hengelo, The Hague or Magdeburg." "The design of the Luxor Theatre, the process of its realisation, Bolles + Wilson's surrounding urban fields and, most importantly, the internal life in the building engendered by the architecture are fully presented in this book."--Jacket

Other space odysseys : Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan, Alessandro Poli by Greg Lynn( Book )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 110 libraries worldwide
Today we are witnessing a renewed enthusiasm for space exploration, with scientific expeditions, satellite launches, and the emergence of space tourism pushing us to reconsider our relationship with our planet. Other Space Odysseys has nothing to do with Space Architecture or architecture in outer space. It is not a celebration of high-tech architecture and imagery or extreme physical and mental conditions. Instead, this book proposes a letting go of architecture understood as the production of -material goods in favour of architecture as the production of ideas. How can thinking about space lead to fresh perspectives on earth? Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan and Alessandro Poli present different avenues for approaching this question. Their odysseys, real and virtual, ultimately promise a rediscovery of our own world

Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects by Payne, McKenna, Blumberg Architects Kuwabara( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects, founded in 1987 in Toronto, is one of most innovative architectural offi ces in North America today. They have made a name for themselves both for their integrated design process embodying collaboration with experts, clients and future users as well as the diversity of their aesthetically refined and finely detailed designs. The work ranges from cultural institutions such as the Toronto International Film Festival and Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis to ecologically innovative concepts such as Manitoba Hydro Place in Winnipeg, developed with leading climate engineers Transsolar of Stuttgart. A respectful approach toward the integration of heritage buildings is also a characteristic feature, illustrated by the designs for the Royal Conservatory and the Gardiner Museum in Toronto. Finally, educational and research facilities are also a strong focus in KPMB's work exemplified by the Centre for Innovation and Governance Campus in Waterloo, Ontario, and the Joseph L. Rotman School of Management in Toronto, as well as future projects for the Massachusetts Institute for Technology (MIT) and Princeton University in the United States
Rooms you may have missed : Umberto Riva, Bijoy Jain by Mirko Zardini( Book )
7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
"Rooms You May Have MIssed presents two unexpected stories of architectural attitudes that start unfolding from the interior. On one side, Umberto Riva offers a radical rethinking of the elements associated with everyday inhabitation and a continual questioning of "modern" precepts ; on the other, Bijoy Jain proposes an alternative means of production for contemporary architecture and role for the architect in the economy of building. Together, they point to other paths--modest and particular, but also ambitious and resonant--toward conceiving and making architecture today"--Back cover
