Designing Olympics - Design And Politics Xtra #1 010 Publishers 2012 ISBN 9789064507489 Acqn 21543 Pb 17x24cm 96pp 90col ills 17.50 The Netherlands Olympic Plan 2028, already dubbed the Dutch Approach in international circles, seeks to use the power of sports and the hosting of the 2028 Summer Olympics to put the Netherlands squarely on the international map. The plan is unique because of the exceedingly long run-up period, the aim being to book maximum results before as well as after hopefully securing the bid to organize the Olympic Games in 2028. This extra edition in the Design and Politics series describes the different ways in which design figures in shaping the Olympic Plans ambition to house the 2028 Summer Olympics. Design proves to be a factor at every turn in unifying interests, looking for advantages, inspiring and bringing together the various players and setting up a dialogue, by making the most of uncertain future developments and the dynamics of the Dutch political arena.

The two architects also designed the Feyenoord football stadium and the standard Dutch telephone box, which was used for over 50 years. This publication is the first retrospective on this Rotterdam architecture firm. As pioneers of Nieuwe Bouwen, Brinkman & Van der Vlugt greatly impressed Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier and Richard Neutra with designs like the Van Nelle factory. This book is a contextual monograph on the firm, shedding new light on the origins of their work in a joyous International Style. They drew inspiration from their international travels and adapted this in the rapidly changing European city of the Interbellum, with Rotterdam as their main arena. The practice also designed complete interiors in association with firms like Gispen. Sonneveld House in Rotterdam is a fine example. Architect Joris Molenaar has researched Brinkman & Van der Vlugt for many years. He restored several of the famous architecture firms buildings.

Markus Wespi and Jrme de Meuron draw as much inspiration from the blend of cultures which surrounds them as from their own architectural philosophy, one which seeks the utmost harmony between forms of habitat and nature. The houses the office has conceived and realized are natural elements of the landscapes in which they are situated. Distinctive in the use of materials, especially bare concrete and natural stone, their particular qualities are presented here in an array of large photographs, renderings and technical drawings.

dlle 4 - Filling Up. Delimiting C3 2012 ISBN 9788997775019 Acqn 21945 Pb 23x29cm 240pp 325ills 250col 33.95 The city, including the contemporary city, abhors a void. Faced with the natural tendency of the land market to fill a void with new buildings, the community reacts by planning a new quality for leftover spaces to be recovered as part of the city. Filling these spaces left behind in the centrifugal process of the city is a different task from the traditional design of parks and gardens. In its growth, the contemporary city tends also to meet geographical obstacles, whereupon it often refrains itself from expanding further. These voids attract people in a spontaneous way, until they fall under the care of public administrators and architects to be integrated into the urban dynamic.
