Imperfect health : the medicalization of architecture by Mirko Zardini( Book )
12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 161 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 )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 122 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 114 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"--Page 4 of cover
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 107 libraries worldwide
The book presents, through different odysseys, three responses to the idea of an adventurous journey in space and a future based on technology. After the 1969 lunar mission, architect Alessandro Poli with Superstudio considered it critical to imagine our environment as connected to the new reality of outer space. Their extensive research led to architettura interplanetaria, a highway to connect the earth and moon as well as architettura materiale, which focuses on the return to earth. Architect Michael Maltzan is designing the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Administration Building for NASA that challenges existing models for housing scientific research, and proposes a new type of physical environment to facilitate a collaborative research process. Architect Greg Lynn has developed several investigations that imagine new worlds outside our atmosphere and initiated research and design for new terminals on both the earth and the moon, which will connect travelers between these two places

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
