Imperfect health : the medicalization of architecture by Mirko Zardini( Book )
12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 162 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
Some ideas on living in London and Tokyo : Stephen Taylor, Ryue Nishizawa by Stephen Taylor( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 117 libraries worldwide
"A fundamental change is currently taking place in society: for the first time, half the world's population lives in urban areas. In this context, London and Tokyo provide interesting case studies for investigating the problems raised by living in a continually growing city. By examining the work of Ryue Nishizawa in Tokyo and Stephen Taylor in Lomlon, we may observe that the notion of a progressive homogenization of living conditions in the world's great cities is only an apparent phenomenon. The profound cultural differences that exist between these centres - reflecting different interpretations of the idea of proximity, privacy, and the relationship between inhabitants - inevitably inform the development of their projects and, consequently, the ways in which a community lives together. Taylor and Nishizawa have developed new ideas for living born of their respective cultures. Their innovative residential designs challenge conventional norms and offer approaches that simultaneously shape the life of the resilient and the face of the city."--Jacket
Journeys : how travelling fruit, ideas and buildings rearrange our environment ( Book )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
"Journeys explores architectural issues raised by increased global mobility. Stories by different authors, presented in a fictional framework, highlight key concepts critical to understanding the impact of the movement of people, animals, objects and ideas. The vagabondage of seeds. The transfer of knowledge and experience as people move from one place to another. The physical reconfiguration of communities. These are among the wide range of topics Journeys explores as it seeks to analyze and visually depict how these flows, encounters and migrations unexpectedly change society and our built environment"--P.

Other space odysseys : Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan, Alessandro Poli by Greg Lynn( Book )
10 editions published in 2010 in English and German 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

4 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 16 libraries worldwide
"Trajets explore les problématiques architecturales liées au phénomène mondial d'une mobilité grandissante. Sous forme de récits de fiction, différents auteurs nous présentent ici des concepts essentiels permettant d'appréhender les effets des déplacements de personnes, d'animaux, de biens et d'idées. La vagabondage des noix, le transfert de compétences et de pratiques ou encore, la réorganisation physique de communautés, ne sont que quelques-uns parmi les divers sujets abordés. Trajets analyse et rend visible comment ces flux, ces rencontres et ces migrations transforment de manière surprenante nos sociétés et notre environnement bâti"--P. [4] of cover

Some ideas on living in London and Tokyo by Stephen Taylor( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
The book reconsiders the theme of living in a city by exploring new approaches that reveal a different way of integrating projects into the existing city. Due to their scale, extensive built environment, and efforts to grow the city from within, London and Tokyo face similar urban development issues but occupy cultural contexts in which themes of proximity, privacy, community, and public space take on different meanings and require distinct solutions. The housing projects of Nishizawa and Taylor show how inhabitants can live in a house, and, at the same time, enlarge the scale of their living to the neighbourhood and the city. They introduce, within the specificity of their cultures and philosophies, the idea that a housing project is a way of contributing to the atmosphere, the character and the life of the city. The book contains statements by Nishizawa and Taylor framing their approaches and ideas, accompanied by images and explanation of their projects and a discussion between them, as well as essays by Giovanna Borasi focusing on the relevance of this topic today, and by Peter Allison framing the architect's approaches in a historical perspective and within the two cultures and a preface by Mirko Zardini
