A+t 43 - Workforce A Better Place To Work


a+t Ediciones 2014 ISBN 9788461715190 Acqn 24378
Pb 24x32cm 160pp 167ills 75col 26.50
The contemporary workplace has derived from successive compression and decompression.
First, there was the hierarchical Taylorist office. Then came the rational, well-lit and organised
space with individual cubicles. A return to the open landscape office came later, with free layouts
shrouded in vegetation the forerunner of the dematerialisation of the workplace. Today, we are
in a far more fluid state that envisages the specialisation of space and brand expression: diversity
and identity. The workplace should not only encompass tasks like individual and group work, but
also those involving learning and socialising.

Architecture, Photography And The Contemporary Past


Art And Theory Publishing 2014 ISBN 9789198157352 Acqn 24448
Pb 22x28cm 184pp 130ills 70col 22.50
As traces left behind by the last 200 years of profound historical change, architecture and
photography contribute both to the contemporary skyline and to our image of the past. Their
common history provides an indispensable background to discussions of what has been called
the contemporary past modernity considered as an open problem rather than a closed historical
period. In both cases, an irregular border can be traced between the discursive and its opposite,
the material. The intersection offers an interesting confrontation between traditional academic
historiography and the artistic application of historical perspectives, an exploration of the
contemporary past.

Giancarlo Mazzanti - Architecture As Mechanism For Building Community


Tu Delft 2014 ISBN 9789461863355 Acqn 24325
Pb 21x21cm 52pp 26col ills 15.75
Giancarlo Mazzanti was invited this year by the Wouter Mikmak Foundation to lecture in the
Designers of the Future series because of the exceptionally engaged character of his
architectural practice, wherein he demonstrates that it is also possible to situate social values at
the core of architectural design. He aims to empower transformations and build community,
focusing on adapting architecture to make it capable of changing behaviour. It is Mazzantis belief
that architectures worth is based not only on itself but also on what it produces, on its capacity to
perform rather than on its capacity to represent. Topical perspectives are illustrated with
exemplary case studies.

The roots of this review are in our daily life. A vital prerequisite for the existence of the buildings
selected here is their everyday function mundane yet also extraordinary. The architecture
avoids formal acrobatics and does not aim to entertain, but instead penetrates every aspect of
our existence. By selecting more than 50 projects that have successfully embedded themselves
in our lives, it shows the variety of Flemish architecture today with buildings of different scales,
programmes and users. Each takes the expectations of the clients and users seriously. With work

Eduardo Souto Moura - At Work


A.Mag 2014 ISBN 9789899858077 Acqn 24469
Hb 25x27cm 284pp 230ills 64
According to the foreword by Kenneth Frampton, Eduardo Souto Moura displays a certain
sensual propensity for Platonic form which we may associate with the Mediterranean and with the
Arab world. The respected Portuguese architects portfolio is as diverse as it is expansive, a fact
that this monograph, compiled by architectural photographer Juan Rodrguez, very much
emphasises. Besides numerous photographs of the architect and his projects taken by
Rodrguez, the book includes highly individual perspectives through commentary by a number of
architects and critics, among them, Emilio Tuon, Luis Fernndez-Galiano, David Cohn and Vasa
Perovic.

decade. In the years that followed, OOPEAA has established itself as one of Finlands leading
architecture firms, one that is distinguished by a sensitivity to material and craftmanship. In text,
photographs and drawings, this book traces the offices development into one of the most
innovative architectural practices in the Nordic region today.

In K2S Beyond the Wall of Sound, the architecture oeuvre of renowned young Finnish
architects K2S is at last published in its entirety from the ovoid, remarkable Kamppi Chapel to
the large-scale, complex development of the now iconic Olympic Stadium canopy. The work of
K2S is based on the conviction that good architecture touches the human soul, and does not
submit to dogmas or a signature style. To Mikko Summanen, Kimmo Lintula and Niko Sirola, the
Finnish word for roots juuret is essential. Their design philosophy is guided by principles of
materiality and its sensory aspects, the notion of context, Finnish building traditions and a fourth,
innovative dimension. Edited by Salka Hallstrm Bornold and designed by Dalston Creative, the
volume also includes texts by the group's mentors, Pritzker Prize winner Toyo Ito and esteemed
architecture thinkers Juhani Pallasmaa and Hans Ibelings.

Design and Politics #6 - Are We The World? Randstad Holland vs. Sao Paulo, Detroit,

Hb 17x24cm 264pp 220ills 100col 24.50
Part six of the series compares the Randstad region in the Netherlands with So Paulo, Istanbul
and Detroit. It provides speculation on alternative visions for urban planning and idealistic
architectural interventions for these cities. Are We the World? is not only a plea for a more
central role for city planning, along with an active exchange of ideas, but also for new political
involvement. This instalment questions whether Dutch ingenuity, pragmatism and process
management qualities admired in the poly-centric Randstad are the ideals most applicable to
the explosively expanding or shrinking cities of the 21st century. What does the Dutch model offer
global cities, and what can it learn?

Alas Of The Functional City - CIAM 4 And Comparative Urban Analysis

Hb 24x30cm 480pp 500ills 250col 89
The legendary fourth CIAM congress took place aboard a ship on the Mediterranean Sea in 1933.
Led by Le Corbusier, Cornelis van Eesteren and Sigfried Giedion and themed the Functional
City, the universal programmatic agenda it produced is considered to be a pinnacle of urbanism.
Participants analysed 34 cities on the basis of maps specially produced for the congress, and the
results were shown at an exhibition in Amsterdams Stedelijk Museum in 1935. Plans for a
publication were interrupted by the war, and the material has until now remained unpublished.
This systematic overview of the CIAM 4 city maps offers new perspectives at a crucial moment
for urbanism today.

This edition focuses on those places where people tend to spend their free time, showcasing the
primal concept of the retreat through experimental design. Locations of the 20 featured projects
range from natural environments to dense urban situations. In these places of seclusion,
functional necessity is generally of lesser priority than portraying the essential lifestyle that their
users or residents desire when spending time away from their everyday lives. To match these
requirements, architects are often encouraged to put their experimental concepts into practice. An
essay by Juhani Pallasmaa precedes works by Cecilia Puga, Studio Mumbai, David Kohn, Casey
Brown and more.

What began as frustration with monotonous studies and a desire to find meaning ended up in a
formative and eventful journey to the far corners of the world for Yashar Hanstad and Andreas
Gjertsen. It began as a coincidental meeting at the Norwegian University of Science and
Technology, which after subsequent months of working together grew into a lasting professional
bond. Aspirations towards social sustainability and pragmatic creativity are tantamount for the
young architects, outlined here through diverse projects and personal reflections, from an
orphanage and attempts at improving slums in Bangkok, to a Sumatran training centre and
original projects in Norway.
