"Earth Perfect? Nature, Utopia and the Garden" is an eclectic, yet rigorous reflection on the relationship – historical, present and future – between humanity and the garden. Through the lens of Utopian Studies – the interdisciplinary field that encompasses fictions all the way through to actual political projects, and urban ideals; in a nutshell, addressing the human natural drive towards the ideal – "Earth Perfect?" brings together a selection of inspiring essays, each contributed by foremost writers from the fields of architecture, history of art, classics, cultural studies, farming, geography, horticulture, landscape architecture, law, literature, philosophy, urban planning and the natural sciences. Through these joined voices, the garden emerges as a site of contestation and a repository for symbolic, spiritual, social, political and ecological meaning. Questions such as: what is the role of the garden in defining humanity's ideal relationship with nature? And how should we garden in the face of catastrophic ecological decline? Are addressed through wideranging case studies, including ancient Roman Gardens in Pompeii, Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights, the Gardens of Versailles, organic farming in New England and Bohemia's secret gardens, as well as landscape in contemporary architecture. Issues relating to the utopian garden are explored thematically rather than chronologically, and organised in six chapters: Being in nature, inscribing the garden, green/house, The garden politic, economies of the garden and how then shall we garden? Each essay is both individual in scope and part of the wider discourse of the book as a whole, and each is lusciously illustrated, bringing to life the subject with diverse visual material ranging from photography to historical documents, maps and artworks.

The Good Garden: The Landscape Architecture of Edmund Hollander Design

3449 руб.
This complementary volume to The Private Oasis: Built Elements in the Landscape (Grayson, 6/2012) focuses on the many ways plants, as a soft element in the landscape, can shape our emotional response to a garden. From lush, low borders that ease the transition between the hardscape elements that define terraces and the natural landscape beyond, to immaculately shaped espaliers and romantic allees, to architectural hedges, to thematic flower gardens planted exclusively to provide beguiling scents throughout the seasons, Edmund Hollander and Maryanne Connelly provide an insider's glimpse into how their firm creates landscapes that are memorable, sensual, and layered. Text by longtime New York Times garden contributor Anne Raver breaks down the design of these glamorous East Coast estate gardens to show how they were created-and how the reader can extract elements of them successfully for smaller gardens at home by following Hollander's ecological and practical emphasis on choosing zone-appropriate and condition-appropriate plants. Over 300 lush color images show gardens both in detail and overview. An appendix on the designers' 25 favorite plants for temperate climates (complete with lively anecdotes about why) makes their designs accessible to all.

Gardens and parks are important open spaces within urban space. These “urban landscapes” are becoming increasingly important in the wake of the rapid increase in urbanization worldwide. At the same time, there is a centuries-old tradition of municipal parks, which have often become historical landmarks because they represent a specific example of the human cultural production. The book systematically analyzes from the perspective of design fourteen urban landscapes from the sixteenth century to the present as interim forms between city and country. The list of gardens and parks presented ranges from such classic, worldfamous examples as the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris, Regent’s Park in London, and the Potsdamer Gartenreich to the new green spaces of the present such as the Emscher Landschaftspark in Duisburg und River Park in Tokyo. The authors present a detailed analysis with descriptions, photographs, and drawings and are thus able to demonstrate how each of these parks made an important evolutionary contribution toward the contemporary urban landscape. Further, they provide a glimpse of future scenarios projected by current experimental landscape architecture.

Visualizing Landscape Architecture

4827 руб.
“We don’t sell gardens; we sell images of gardens.” This observation on the part of a landscape architect makes it clear just how important it is that a design be effectively communicated to the community, clients, and the public. Drawings, models, simulations, and films communicate the designers’ proposed ideas and solutions, but they also convey their attitude toward the use of nature and the environment. With myriad possibilities – including computer programs as well as hand drawings and models, which continue to be widely used – and strong competition in the field, there is now a huge variety of visual representations, with agreed-upon rules but also a great deal of freedom. In three large sections, this books sifts through the currently commonplace and available techniques and evaluates them in terms of their informative value and persuasive power, always illustrating its points with analysis of examples from international firms. An introductory look at the development thus far is followed by a systematic presentation of modes of representation in two, three, and four dimensions – in the plane, in space, and in the temporal process. The second section deals with the sequence within the workflow: from the initial sketch through concept and implementation planning all the way to the finished product. The third section deals with the strategic use of visualizations in the context of competitions, future schemes, and large-scale landscape planning. The focus in this section is not on the familiar use of the relevant techniques, but rather on the methods and forms of visual representation in contemporary landscape architecture.

For many decades, the history of Bangka was not a major concern of the Dutch Indies and Indonesian postcolonial history in general. This is because neither Dutch Colonial nor Indonesian postcolonial governments saw Bangka as one of their political and military priorities. In term of architecture, the history and identity of Indonesian colonial and postcolonial architecture and urban perspectives is mostly understood through the geo-political conditions particular to Java, a fact which denies the specific characteristics of the Outer Islands. Therefore, this book extends Indonesian colonial and postcolonial studies outside of Java, and take particular topic of the relationship between Indonesian tin mining activities and their historical representation in architecture and urbanism. This book investigates the operation of power in the construction of identity and stands as a comprehensive novel of architecture and urban history of tin-mining in Bangka island, particularly with regard to socio-political phenomena. This book is therefore the first comprehensive study of Indonesian regional architecture and urbanism to deal with such a topic.

Tree Gardens: Architecture and the Forest

3409 руб.
From their early use as protective shelter to the felling of thousands of trees to harvest wood and create farmland, to more recent attempts at conservation, trees remain one of mankind's greatest resources. But aside from their purely practical uses, trees are appreciated for their beauty and have long served as important elements in designed landscapes. "Tree Gardens" is the first book to focus on what author Gina Crandell calls the "largest living architectural structures" - masses of trees that form expressive spaces on sites all over the world. Each case study - from the grand park at Versailles, to New York City's 9/11 Memorial Forest - explains how the scale, context, species, and spacing of trees on a particular site establish its expressive structure. Featuring engaging text and beautiful images, this much-needed book combines useful how-to aspects of tree planting with theoretical discourse on tree garden design and will be an important resource for students, landscape architects, and horticulturists alike.
Greece Greece Новинка

Greece

The picture that usually comes to mind when we think of Greek architecture is one of classical temples and ancient sites. This book takes a look at the Greece of reality rather than of the imagination – the buildings constructed since the establishment of the modern Greek state. "Greece: Modern Architectures in History" provides a new understanding of modern Greek history and its architecture, introducing buildings, architects, and the ideas that shaped them, from the mid-nineteenth century neoclassical buildings for the new state to contemporary minimalist architectural works and projects of recent urban regeneration. This book relates Greek architecture to the rise of Modernism in Greece and abroad, examining architecture of a uniquely regional character, closely related to the natural landscape, which is at the same time inherently modern. The authors also touch on the generic modern buildings that characterize the contemporary urban landscape, constructed in the building boom in the decades after World War Two. With a backdrop of historical events, from the revolution of the 1820s, to the world wars in the twentieth century, a civil war, military dictatorship, socialist party politics and '90s consumerist boom, "Greece: Modern Architectures in History" provides a unique, critical account of modern and contemporary Greek architecture.

Thirty-nine cutting-edge projects are selected to present the latest trends in landscape design. Graham Cleary, executive of Green Roofs Australasia and an accredited green roof professional, is invited to be chief editor of the book, in which integrated landscape design is discussed in detail, while technical key issues such as plant selection, irrigation systems and maintenance are involved.

Work comprises of two core parts: research and practical part. Main goal of the research part was to gain deep and holistic understanding of AR technology. As for the practical part, the idea was to test and identify existing, commercially available tools that are currently on the market. Apart from making the examples of the AR visualization, the idea was to evaluate the potential of using these visualizations in landscape architecture. As a method for evaluation, a comparative analysis was used. Comparison was made in terms of visualization features and participation benefits to find out what are the pros and cons of using AR, against some standard means of representation that are currently being used in landscape architecture practice.

That Ireland is picturesque is a well-worn cliche, but little is understood of how this perception was created, painted and manipulated during the long eighteenth century. This book positions Ireland at the core of the picturesque's development and argues for a far greater degree of Irish influence on the course of European landscape theory and design. Positioned off-axis from the greater force-field, and off-shore from mainland Europe and America, where better to cultivate the oblique perspective? This book charts the creation of picturesque Ireland, while exploring in detail the role and reach of landscape painting in the planning, publishing, landscaping and design of Ireland's historic landscapes, towns and tourist routes. Thus it is also a history of the physical shaping of Ireland as a tourist destination, one of the earliest, most calculated and most successful in the world.

One hundred miles north of San Francisco, the Sonoma County coast meets the Pacific Ocean in a magnificent display of nature. This is the location of the Sea Ranch, an area covering several thousand acres of large, open meadows and forested natural settings and interspersed with award-winning architecture. The ecologically inspired plan drawn up for the Sea Ranch in the mid-1960s caused a quiet revolution in architecture. Renowned landscape designer Lawrence Halprin's master plan incorporated a set of building guidelines that structured the visual, as well as physical, impact upon the landscape. Subsequent buildings by architects such as Joseph Esherick, Charles Willard Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, and William Turnbull have been recognized worldwide for their remarkable environmental sensitivity. This revised and updated edition of the now-classic monograph, the only one on the Sea Ranch, contains eleven additional projects and an updated account of the ongoing development process and land-management issues.

In landscape-architectural design, a study of the site is naturally a crucially important design step. How can the preexisting layers, traces, and elements be broken down and made fruitful for the recomposition of the landscape?This book presents an extensive typology of possible approaches to working with the site. With more than three hundred landscape designs from every time and place, it systematically presents the methods that underpin the processes involved in composing landscapes (e.g., reduction, decomposition, fragmentation, montage, and collage). Topics range from architectonic details to gardens all the way to cityscapes and cultivated areas, including New York’s Central Park, sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Italian gardens, and the Seine landscapes in Paris.An appendix containing several extensive indices, including an index of landscape-architectural terms, rounds out the usefulness of the book as a sound and solid manual of design.Clemens Steenbergen, author of the successful book Architecture and Landscape, is a professor at the renowned TU Delft (Delft University of Technology) and one of the most experienced teachers in the world in the field of landscape-architectural design.

Shopping Towns Europe: Commercial Collectivity and the Architecture of the Shopping Centre, 1945–1975

10346 руб.
Shopping Towns Europe is the first book to explore the introduction and dissemination of the shopping centre in Europe. European shopping centres are often assumed to be no more than carbon copies of their American precursors – however the wide-ranging case studies featured in this book reveal a very different story. Drawing connections between architectural history, political economy and commerce, together these studies tell us much about the status and role of modernist design, the history of consumption, and the rapidly-changing social, urban, and national contexts of post-war Europe. The book’s eighteen chapters explore case studies spanning the continent on both sides of the Iron Curtain, from Britain and The Netherlands to Sweden and the USSR. The focus is on the three decades following the first introduction of the new typology in 1945, tracing the variety of typological manifestations that occurred in widely different contexts, from Keynesianism to communism to military dictatorship. The book also explores the role of the shopping centre in urban reconstruction, and examines how new shopping centres were designed to elicit specifically modern behaviour and introduce new conceptions of collectivity into citizens’ everyday lives. Please note that due to permissions restrictions, several images which do appear in the print edition of this book do not feature in the ebook versions.

Reading W. Scott's Picturesque Scotland

5576 руб.
The nostalgia and exoticism experienced by the author after the stay in Edinburgh was the origin of this critical work. Inspired by her one year's stay in Scotland, the author became interested in Sir Walter Scott and his achievement of inventing a romantic and attractive Scotland by putting local history, Gaelic folklores, and natural scenes in his novels. The book examines the picturesque aesthetics used by Scott in his first novel Waverley (1814) and reveals the paradoxical nature and politics of the time from Scott's representation of Scotland. Scott creates a representative image for the "nation" of Scotland, but this national identity continuingly waivers between romance and history as well as imagination and reality.

Art History in the Wake of the Global Turn

1859 руб.
With globalization steadily reshaping the cultural landscape, scholars have long called for a full-scale reassessment of art history's largely Eurocentric framework. This collection of case studies and essays, the latest in the "Clark Studies in the Visual Arts" series, brings together voices from various disciplinary and theoretical backgrounds, each proposing ways to remap, decentre, and reorient what is often assumed to be a unified field. Rather than devise a one-size-fits-all strategy for what has long been in actuality a divided and disjointed terrain, these authors and artists reframe the inherent challenges of the global – most notably geographic, political, aesthetic and linguistic differences – as productive starting points for study. As the book demonstrates, approaching art history from such alternative perspectives rewrites of some of the most basic narratives, from the origins of representation to the beginnings of the "modern" to the very history of globalization and its effects.

Studies in the History of Tax Law, Volume 2

13076 руб.
This work contains the full text of the papers presented at the second Tax Law History Conference in July 2004. The Conference was organised by the Cambridge Law Faculty's Centre for Tax Law. The papers range widely in terms of period - from the Old Testament to the twentieth century - and geographical areas, with papers on matters relating to not only the United Kingdom but also Canada, Australia and the US. The matters discussed are also broad and include the concept of taxation developed by Adam Smith and his fellow United Kingdom writers of the Enlightenment, problems of adjudication in tax law and of access to justice for taxpayers, definitions of income and its UK subset 'total income', capital gains tax, stamp duty on newspapers, the wartime excess profits tax, the nature of tithes, the strange tale of Jasper Moore, the real nature of the decision in the Duke of Westminster case, the demise of wealth transfer taxes in Canada, the nature of the US corporate tax and debates in the US about whether to raise war finance by issuing bonds or levying tax. As a whole the papers illustrate not only the wide variety but also the real depth of the issues waiting to be investigated in this rapidly growing field of scholarship.

Syntax of Landscape

5633 руб.
Duisburg-Nord Landscape Park in Germany, the Plateau de Kirchberg in Luxembourg, Parco Dora in Turin, Italy and numerous other projects designed and built by Peter Latz and Partners stand as examples of an up-to-date and intelligent approach to alternative environmental technologies and the reclamation of extensive industrial landscapes. In Peter Latz’s landscape architecture, ecological and social concerns are translated into an individual aesthetic language that aims to achieve a timeless quality. The different layers and meanings of the sites rich in history are revealed and woven into networks of spatial and temporal relationships that follow rules of their own – the syntax of landscape. A sense of process and dynamism in sustainable landscape structures characterises the works, works that are open for change: they are spaces in development, not parks as finite set piecesPeter Latz teaches at the Technische Universitat (Technical University) in Munich-Weihenstephan and has held guest professorships at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University. Udo Weilacher is dean of the Fakultat fur Architektur und Landschaft (School of Architecture and Landscape) at Hanover University.

Green City Spaces: Urban Landscape Architecture

6190 руб.
Green areas of all kinds have gained significance for contemporary urban planning. In addition to the importance for the structure and appearance of urban spaces, these areas have very different social, ecological and economic functions. For instance, they can serve as relaxation and communication rooms, or as habitats for flora and fauna they can have an extremely positive influence on the micro-climate, not to mention the increasing attention they receive from the real estate business as a factor in site evaluation. This volume presents a broad spectrum of green areas from around the world, like urban parks, green facades, public gardens and green city squares. The interplay of international trends, regional characteristics and local traditions is especially interesting. The selection of projects shows the various tendencies of this discipline at the junction of landscape architecture and urban planning.

Art and Architecture in Mexico

2245 руб.
This new interpretive history of Mexican art from the Spanish Conquest to the early decades of the twenty-first century is the most comprehensive introduction to the subject in fifty years. James Oles ranges widely across media and genres, offering new readings of painting, sculpture, architecture, prints, and photographs. He interprets major works by such famous artists as Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, but also discusses less familiar figures in history and landscape painting, muralism, and conceptual art. The story of Mexican art is set in its rich historical context by the book's treatment of political and social change. The author draws on recent scholarship to examine crucial issues of race, class, and gender, including the work of indigenous artists during the colonial period, and of women artists in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Throughout, Oles shows how Mexican artists participated in local and international developments. He considers both native and foreign-born artists, from Baroque architects to kinetic sculptors, and highlights the important role played by Mexicans in the global art scene of the last five centuries.

Central banks in Great Britain and the United States arose early in the financial revolution. The Bank of England was created in 1694 while the first Banks of the United States appeared in 1791-1811 and 1816-36, and were followed by the Independent Treasury, 1846-1914. These institutions, together with the Suffolk Bank and the New York Clearing House, exercised important central banking function before the creation of the Federal Reserve System in 1913. Significant monetary changes in the lives of these British and American institutions are examined within a framework that deals with the knowledge and behavior of central bankers and their interactions with economists and politicians. Central Bankers' behavior has shown considerable continuity in the influence of incentives and their interest in the stability of the financial markets.

"Earth Perfect? Nature, Utopia and the Garden" is an eclectic, yet rigorous reflection on the relationship – historical, present and future – between humanity and the garden. Through the lens of Utopian Studies – the interdisciplinary field that encompasses fictions all the way through to actual political projects, and urban ideals; in a nutshell, addressing the human natural drive towards the ideal – "Earth Perfect?" brings together a selection of inspiring essays, each contributed by foremost writers from the fields of architecture, history of art, classics, cultural studies, farming, geography, horticulture, landscape architecture, law, literature, philosophy, urban planning and the natural sciences. Through these joined voices, the garden emerges as a site of contestation and a repository for symbolic, spiritual, social, political and ecological meaning. Questions such as: what is the role of the garden in defining humanity's ideal relationship with nature? And how should we garden in the face of catastrophic ecological decline? Are addressed through wideranging case studies, including ancient Roman Gardens in Pompeii, Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights, the Gardens of Versailles, organic farming in New England and Bohemia's secret gardens, as well as landscape in contemporary architecture. Issues relating to the utopian garden are explored thematically rather than chronologically, and organised in six chapters: Being in nature, inscribing the garden, green/house, The garden politic, economies of the garden and how then shall we garden? Each essay is both individual in scope and part of the wider discourse of the book as a whole, and each is lusciously illustrated, bringing to life the subject with diverse visual material ranging from photography to historical documents, maps and artworks.
