Welcome

Welcome to our Spring ong>2013ong> Architecture catalogue, dedicated to our new

imprint ong>Artificeong> ong>booksong> on architecture. ong>Artificeong> is committed to publishing titles

that propel thinking in architecture and its related disciplines including urban

design, planning and landscape design, and architectural history, theory and

criticism. Now distributing Black Dog Publishing’s architecture ong>booksong>, ong>Artificeong>

has a combined list of more than 100 active titles.

This season’s list presents the first in our new Contemporary Architecture

series, Contemporary Architecture United Kingdom. Each book in the series

will offer engaging, challenging and inspiring surveys of contemporary

architecture in specific territories worldwide. The series will contribute to a

broad discussion of architecture internationally and include key re-published

texts and specially commissioned essays by leaders in the field. Following

the success of our previous catalogue and due to popular demand, Artists’

Studios and Green Design: From Theory to Practice have been reprinted

and are included once again in our catalogue, joining fellow bestsellers

Atlas and Homes, Issues and Processes.

We are delighted that, for the second time, a project published by

ong>Artificeong> ong>booksong> has won the highly prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize. In 2008,

Accordia in Cambridge, a collaboration between three of the UK’s highly

regarded architecture firms, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Maccreanor

Lavington and Alison Brooks Architects was the recipient, published in

Dwelling Accordia while, in October 2012, Stanton Williams’ Sainsbury

Laboratory was awarded the prize, celebrated in our title, The Sainsbury

Laboratory Science, Architecture, Art.

ong>Artificeong> continues to present the international scope of contemporary

architecture with ong>booksong> on architecture firms, buildings and practitioners

based and practicing worldwide. Our Spring ong>2013ong> catalogue highlights our

increasing interaction with North America, with new publications from

Canadian practices Montgomery Sisam and Architects Alliance while, in the

UK, we present the work of London-based practice MoreySmith.

We are particularly proud of the newest additions to our theoretical

publications. We are pleased to be working once again with Professor Robert

Maxwell on his second collection of essays, Ancient Wisdom and Modern

Knowhow, as well as with Anthony Vidler, Dean of the Irwin S Chanin School of

Architecture, Cooper Union, on his collected writings, The Third Typology and

Other Essays. Trevor Dannatt has, together with renowned architect Eric Parry

and ong>Artificeong>’s publisher Duncan McCorquodale, assembled re-edited material

from Dannatt’s iconic series the Architects’ Year Book as a single volume

publication with contributions from and essays about Le Corbusier, Jane

Drew, Maxwell Fry and other leading Modern and post-war architects, artists,

designers and writers.

contemporary architecture united kingdom is the first title in artifice

ong>booksong> on architecture's new contemporary architecture series. the

series focuses on specific territories worldwide and offers engaging,

challenging and inspiring surveys of contemporary architecture in each

region. in keeping with black dog publishing’s artworLd series—thus

far comprising ong>booksong> on contemporary art in the Middle east, Latin

america, the united kingdom, north america and eastern europe—

each book in the contemporary architecture series will include key

re-published texts by historians, critics and practitioners, as well as

new specially commissioned contextualising essays concerning the

architecture comprising each title in the series.

contemporary architecture united kingdom features the work of more

than 50 architects from the united kingdom including nord, feilden

clegg bradley studios, richard Murphy architects, haworth tompkins,

eric parry architects and sarah wigglesworth architects.

every building type, from large public institutions to private houses, is

covered along with a wide range of design approaches relating to

preoccupations as diverse as materials, processes, climate and the

environment, economics, and history and theory. together, the series will

enable cross-cultural comparisons and establish common and divergent

concerns given each region, in contrast to the emerging phenomena

of 'globalisation' and the focus on singular 'iconic' architecture works.

this carefully considered book provides a critical perspective on

contemporary architecture in the united kingdom and its emerging

themes and preoccupations. a timely survey, contemporary architecture

united kingdom is essential reading for architects, educators, students

and anyone with a serious interest in the contemporary built environment.

anCient Wisdom and

modern KnoWhoW

Learning to Live with uncertainty

ancient wisdom and Modern knowhow is the second of two new ong>booksong>

to be published by artifice ong>booksong> on architecture by professor robert

Maxwell, emeritus professor of architecture at princeton university. the

first, a few years of writing interspersed with some facts of Life, was

published in autumn 2012.

adept at moving between the examination of modern and contemporary

architecture, art, literature and music, robert Maxwell is a respected

scholar whose critical writings articulate the role architecture plays in

contemporary culture. in ancient wisdom and Modern knowhow, Maxwell

considers the notion of ‘doubt’ encountered by the modern architect.

in ten chapters that draw upon writers and topics as diverse and

engaging as andre Malraux and his concept of the Musée imaginaire,

colin rowe and his exploration of “Mannerism in Modern architecture

as well as rowe’s book with fred koetter, collage city, and examining

works by artists including albrecht dürer, picasso and duchamp and

architects including James stirling, Zaha hadid, frank gehry and daniel

Libeskind, Maxwell steps effortlessly through a range of ideas and

concepts, to create an engaging and provocative thesis.

based in toronto, architectsalliance (aa) thinks and works at a variety

of scales. the practice’s award-winning projects in canada, the

united states and europe range from individual academic buildings

to entire campuses, from private houses to large-scale residential

developments, and from individual buildings and public spaces to

mixed use developments that transform an entire precinct.

WorK in progress

architects aLLiance

while the practice’s portfolio includes many individual schemes, it is

aa’s contribution to the intensity and vitality of cities that is of particular

interest. each of the practice’s architecture and urban design projects

is a conscious act of city building, articulating a compelling and

appropriate response to context; a convincing and urbane response to

density that enriches both the public realm and the individual’s

experience of urban life.

Like the urban landscape, aa and its projects are ‘work in progress.’

the first full study of the practice will feature more than 20 designs

and completed projects, including the terrence donnelly centre for

cellular and biomolecular research for the university of toronto, the

brock university cairns family health and bioscience research

complex, student housing for toronto’s york university, the renovation

and expansion of the canadian chancery in the netherlands, the

north point residential development in cambridge, Massachusetts,

the athletes’ village for the 2015 panam / parapan games, and many

of the practice’s residential schemes that are playing a major role in

the current evolution of toronto’s cityscape.

toronto-based practice Montgomery sisam architects has a commitment

to design quality that is rooted in the belief that buildings and their

environs must play a dignified and lasting role for their occupants and the

surrounding community. implicit in this approach is the desire to create

places that make a positive contribution to the occupants’ physical and

mental wellbeing. the practice combines a considered, intellectual and

highly collaborative approach to design and the composition of space

with an intuitive understanding of daylight to produce buildings that

engage with the outdoors and strengthen the beneficial relationship

between design, health and wellbeing.

organised under four key themes, the wide range of project types and

scales include healthcare, infrastructure, educational, recreational

and residential projects. projects presented in this monograph include

ronald Mcdonald house in toronto offering a ‘home away from home’

for out-of-town families with seriously ill children, and the convent for the

sisterhood of st. John the divine, creating a suitable home and a place

for quiet contemplation for its users while at the same time providing

accommodation for the more public functions carried out by the

sisterhood. the chapel is the heart of the complex with its high vaulted

ceiling and high north-facing window.

beautifully illustrated with full-colour photographs alongside drawings,

plans and supporting texts, place and occasion is the first comprehensive

examination of the work of this canadian practice.

Moreysmith is one of britain’s foremost interior design practices. the

first book to showcase its work, renew looks back on two decades of

ground-breaking, award-winning projects.

since founding the business in 1993, Linda Morey smith has built a

reputation for achieving the unachievable, transforming the dark, derelict

and uninspiring into light-flooded, sophisticated and uplifting spaces.

from London’s capital radio, Moreysmith’s first commission, to current

clients such as Moet hennessy, renew follows the practice’s visions as

they take shape, always staying true to the original vision.

among Moreysmith’s trademarks is the ability to work with difficult

period buildings, opening them up and injecting them with warmth

while remaining sensitive to the original structure and allowing it to

shine through. with a foreword by professor Jeremy Myerson, director

of the helen hamlyn centre for design at the royal college of art,

and an essay by henrietta thompson, editor-at-Large for wallpaper*,

renew explores the process through which this is achieved, also

exploring the practice’s frequent collaborations with artists and the

working methods that have ensured a dedicated loyalty when it comes

to both clients and workforce over the years.

whether designing a home or a corporate headquarters, people are

central to every Moreysmith project, and this ability to infuse a building

with a sense of humanity is behind truly successful interior architecture.

renew reveals the vision, attention to detail, technical expertise and

commitment necessary to make it a reality.

Bridging Centuries

peMbroke coLLege oxford

oxford university has had a formative role in shaping the city’s uniquely

dense historic fabric. with increased demand for development and

the neglect of abandoned, poor quality buildings—previously housing

tanneries, breweries and slaughterhouses–a national competition for the

expansion of oxford’s centuries-old pembroke college was initiated and

won by berman guedes stretton architects. known for its sympathetic

approach to architecture, both in the firm’s extensive experience with

listed buildings and its deference for maximum functionality, the winning

design comprises a human scale development of stepped quads,

conference facilities and housing.

bridging centuries outlines the genesis of the project in relation to

pembroke college’s extensive history and the development’s aspirations:

to be innovative, useful and respectful of its context. the book discusses

how the college has played a major part in rejuvenating this area of

industrial decline while simultaneously integrating itself within the context

of Lutyen’s neighbouring campion hall and surrounding 1960s buildings.

a major part of the project’s success lies in the practice’s ‘no surprises’

approach and dedication to two years of bi-monthly consultations with

the college’s user group, aided by the extensive use of 3-d computer

visualisations. issues nonetheless arose with the discovery of rich ancient

ruins and the addition of a new bridge measuring a mere 150 mm thick.

uniquely, the book also offers great insight into the financial planning

of the project and how, step by step, this informed various elements of

the design.

the scheme is reflective of berman guedes stretton architect’s consistent

clarity of vision, creative thinking and dedication to uncomplicated,

detailed design. the simple elegance and logic of their work paired with

their extensive historical and theoretical knowledge has recently won the

firm two riba awards, numerous listed building project commissions and

clients such as the natural history Museum, imperial college London

and the nhs.

symposium

in 1944, the publisher paul elek approached the well-known architect Jane

drew to edit an architects' year book. given free rein during the period

1945 to the 1960s, ten volumes appeared with generously illustrated

articles by leading thinkers, critics and practitioners in the fields of

architecture, art and design. trevor dannatt, then working for drew, was

involved from the start and became joint editor, and then sole editor with

an editorial board consisting of ove arup, Jane drew, Maxwell fry and

herbert read. the wide range of authors and work published in the

ayb included that by or on peter and alison smithson, Le corbusier,

erno goldfinger, James stirling, naum gabo and aldo van eyck.

the architects’ year book symposium is a revised and re-edited selection

of the most relevant and engaging material featured in the first ten

volumes of the ayb. compiled by trevor dannatt, duncan Mccorquodale

and eric parry, the architects’ year book symposium is an essential

contribution to the historiography of twentieth century architecture, and

will be of interest to architects, historians, students and anyone with an

interest in the impact and legacy of Modernism across the fields of

architecture, art and design.

... a wonderful insight. blueprint

architect MJ Long has worked with a remarkable list of artists, designing

both their living and working space. artists’ studios explores some of

these key projects, providing a personal insight into the creative mind

behind the working space of some the most highly respected artists.

the studios profiled include those of sir peter blake, rb kitaj, paul huxley

and frank auerbach, amongst others.

MJ Long is an architect, interior designer and a visiting critic at yale

university’s school of architecture. since 1976, Long has designed a

number of purpose-built artists’ studios, each uniquely conceived with the

focus on the provision of working daylight in the studio. artists’ studios

looks upon the relationship between artist and studio and the designs of

Long from her perspective. the book is organised around each studio

she has been involved with, detailing the conception of the project and

the specific needs of the artists.

artists’ studios provides the reader with a unique insight into a very

special collaborative practice between architect and artist, in addition

to providing a glimpse into never before seen interiors of the artists’

working and living environments.

green design

froM theory to practice

the awareness of the environmental and ecological impact of

architectural practice has never been as significant as it is today; with

issues surrounding sustainability, environmental responsibility and the

use of natural resources becoming unavoidable. green design: from

theory to practice is a unique discussion of these issues, looking at

what green design actually entails and how this can be implemented

within today’s architecture.

this reader scrutinises the pressing questions that designers must

inescapably confront today, looking at the need to comply to green

accreditation systems, but also at the wider and often over-looked

implications of building design. green design looks in-depth at the

way we use buildings, distribution systems of energy, transportation,

manufacturing and the food industries, and ultimately at the way we

lead our lives, to evaluate and address the true meaning of green

design and the real causes underpinning today’s environmental crisis.

the contributors including, amongst others, david Lloyd Jones, thomas

herzog, elma durmisevic, Michael Mcdonough and arthur spector, each

bring their own thoughts and questions on how to improve sustainable

design, how important it is and how it can be enforced. these discussions

are given a contemporary relevance through the inclusion of the work of

contemporary architects, artists and writers.

Michael wilford: buildings and projects 1992–2012 looks at the work

of one of the most internationally respected british architects working

in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. the book is written

by robert Maxwell, emeritus professor of architecture at princeton

university, and author and academic professor anthony vidler, dean

of cooper union school of architecture. original writing by Michael

wilford is also included, presenting the architect’s work, together with

his partners Laurence bain, russell bevington and Manuel schupp, in

detail from both a historical and theoretical perspective. Michael

wilford: buildings and projects 1992–2012 features well-known projects

including the Lowry and the british embassy in berlin alongside hitherto

largely unpublished projects such as the singapore national arts

center and abando transport interchange in bilbao.

in 1960 Michael wilford joined the practice created by James stirling

and James gowan in 1956. the stirling/wilford partnership was

established in 1971 and continued until James stirling’s death in 1992,

after which Michael wilford continued the trajectory of the earlier work,

whilst creating a clear identity post-stirling.

Michael wilford’s work has gained international renown and includes

significant public buildings such as performing art centres, art galleries,

business headquarters, museums and libraries located around the world.

continuing in the tradition of the ‘black’ and ‘white’ ong>booksong> (James

stirling buildings and projects 1950–1974, and James stirling Michael

wilford buildings and projects 1975–1992), produced by James stirling

and Michael wilford in 1975 and 1994, Michael wilford: buildings and

projects 1992–2012 brings up to date wilford’s legacy with respect to

contemporary british and international architecture.

formed in 1991, richard Murphy architects’ early reputation was built

on highly crafted and innovative domestic work in edinburgh, scotland.

the practice has grown both in size and range of commissions, working

across the uk and ireland, in europe and sri Lanka and, more than two

decades on, has amassed an extensive portfolio, designing buildings and

spaces for the arts, education, housing, health, public and community

use, as well as masterplanning.

richard Murphy architects makes careful responses to complex contexts—

whether insertion, extension or new-build, the practice’s projects develop

a dialogue between existing and new, intimacy and scale. Large or

small scale, public or private, each scheme harnesses plan, form,

materials and detailing to produce a subtle, sensitively-considered result.

covering projects from edinburgh’s fruitmarket gallery to the british high

commission in colombo, sri Lanka, from schemes for large housing

association clients to the intimate scale of the Maggie’s cancer caring

centre in edinburgh, this survey of richard Murphy architects’ work

presents a series of fascinating projects, and charts the development of

a key contemporary architectural practice from the late twentieth century

into the twenty-first.

reconnecting cultures: the architecture of rocco design addresses the

work of one of the most sensitive and progressive practices to emerge in

the far east. reconnecting cultures considers rocco design's approach

to the different contexts in which the practice works, by showcasing

projects developed both in mainland china and hong kong, where

different aesthetic and architectural strategies are employed to respond

to disparate cultural and physical landscapes.

as a chinese architectural practice based in hong kong, where oriental

and western, modern and traditional cultures are merging, rocco design’s

work is grounded in the belief that architecture is the embodiment of

culture—embracing and reinterpreting the past, heritage and tradition, as

well as addressing modernity—and the requirements of contemporary

living, spatial relationships, materials, and the balance between the public

and private realms. as such, rocco design is sensitive to the cultural

context in which the practice works—its architecture is both an expression

of form, and an interpretation of the culture at its heart.

reconnecting cultures offers the most substantial exploration of rocco

design’s work to date. interviews with rocco as well as contributions

from eminent architectural commentators take the reader through the

underlying theoretical and aesthetic preoccupations that shape the

practice’s work and make it resonate within both a chinese and an

increasingly global context.

plus traces the development of Jestico + whiles from a two man practice

to what is now a significant, internationally-focused, integrated design

studio of architects, interior and graphic designers, with offices in London

and prague and projects completed in 20 countries worldwide.

the book charts the happenstance of events that has guided the

practice's award-winning design approach against the changing political

and economic events of the last 30 years. Jestico + whiles' portfolio of

work ranges from mainstream, residential, education, hotel and transport

developments to more unusual cultural and social projects. featured

projects include the w hotel and one aldwych in London and andel's

hotels in prague and Łódz´ , housing schemes royal Quay and greenwich

Millennium village, Mumbai's Juhu cinema, passmores academy in essex

and the central school of speech and drama in swiss cottage, London.

telling the story of the practice through essays by Martin spring and

david taylor, the book relates how Jestico + whiles became one of the

first architecture firms to transfer ownership into a trust run by and for

the benefit of its staff, leading to creative working relationships with

clients and unusual designs of great quality.

an open Mind marks the tenth anniversary of hudson architects, an

architecture practice with an international reach based in norwich and

London. featuring celebrated projects including baggy house and the

salvation army building in chelmsford, alongside more recent and, as

yet, less well known projects such as cedar house and feering bury

farm barn, this book presents a sequence of projects that spans the

practice’s history and demonstrates its continuing evolution.

hudson architects was initially known for contemporary one-off houses,

which in many ways defined its early public persona. this book, the first

comprehensive monograph of hudson architects, illustrates how, unafraid

to challenge established ways of working, the practice has developed

a diverse and complex portfolio across a range of sectors. a series of

illustrated essays by key authors and commentators on contemporary

architecture in the uk and beyond examines its work, from the practice’s

skill in beautiful detailing to its ability to create a modern response to the

vernacular and tradition. the book also showcases the practice’s recent

civic and community buildings, and its community engagement work.

what emerges is a sophisticated architectural language, a bold approach

to context through confident reinterpretations of local vernacular

architecture, pioneering sustainable, pre-fabricated construction that does

not compromise on style and an approach to conservation that breaks

new ground by fusing sound principles with extraordinarily contemporary

design thinking.

London-based practice buckleygrayyeoman was formed in 1997. the

practice’s diverse range of work includes housing, industrial buildings,

office new build and refurbishments, masterplanning and work in the

education sector, all with a focus on sustainability, quality and innovation.

continued. follows the first publication on the practice’s work, to be

continued, published by black dog publishing in 2005, and looks at

the variety of buckleygrayyeoman’s work from a range of perspectives,

drawing on the disparate influences on the practice’s engagement

with contemporary design.

buckleygrayyeoman offers more than a conventional architectural

service. aiming first to understand the core values of its clients, through

aspects including business model and branding, the practice offers

a problem-solving approach to architecture that results in creative

solutions beyond the obvious.

stirling prize-winning architects feilden clegg bradley studios (fcbs)

have developed an award-winning reputation for sustainable design

and innovation and a strong track record in education and community

buildings. the practice is at the forefront of innovative housing design,

from inner city social housing to new suburban neighbourhoods, and

is working on a series of substantial urban regeneration projects

throughout the uk and abroad.

education architecture urbanism places three of the practice’s recent

university projects in the context of their work as a whole, offering a

critical review of the three buildings, and considering the future of

learning environments and the university sector. connecting these

three projects is a new appreciation of the role of the university in the

urban environment, and the ability of higher education buildings to

fulfil a crucial role in the social, economic and environmental aspects

of urban regeneration.

broadcasting place in Leeds comprises academic offices and teaching

spaces for Leeds Metropolitan university, a baptist church and 240

student residences in a landmark building rising to 23 storeys. Manchester

Metropolitan university business school is at the forefront of green

building development in the city. the 23,000 square metre building

incorporates a new faculty as well as a cross-university facility for 5,000

students and 250 staff. on a riverside site in worcester city centre, the

hive is a highly sustainable building and the first joint-use library in the

uk, serving the university of worcester and providing frontline services

for local city residents.

education architecture urbanism: three university projects underlines

fcbs’ profound understanding of the need to create social communities

in education buildings, an architecture that inspires learning, and an

urban environment that embraces universities as a focus for socioeconomic

regeneration.

Winner oF the riBa stirling prize 2012

the new sainsbury Laboratory in cambridge’s botanic garden opened

in late 2011, and is the leading international centre for the study of

plant science. the book is divided into three sections: “science”,

architecture” and “art”. the “science” refers to the scientific practice of

the Laboratory, the “architecture” to the cutting-edge building and the

“art” to the profiled artists who are involved in the project.

the sainsbury Laboratory provides a brief history of plant science, with

darwinist theory setting the context for the centre and today’s research.

the botanic garden opened in cambridge in 1762. it was shortly after

this that professor John stevens henslow first undertook his studies into

plants, and planted trees to use as teaching aids. amongst his students

was charles darwin, and henslow’s teachings in cambridge are thought

to be the inspiration by which darwin set out his own thinking. both

henslow’s and darwin’s plant specimens are housed in the herbarium

at the Laboratory, which holds a collection of over one million plant

specimens from all over the world and from throughout the history of

scientific plant study.

the book discusses the architecture of the sainsbury Laboratory, designed

and built by stanton williams architects, with sketches and photographs of

the building from conception to completion. the “art” section of the book

includes interviews with the three artists specially commissioned to

provide installations at the Laboratory—norman ackroyd, susanna heron

and william pye.

the sainsbury Laboratory features texts by different experts in the field,

including a foreword by Lord david sainsbury, alongside interviews on

the dvd with american plant scientist elliott Meyerowitz, laboratory

specialists and the architects involved in the project. beautifully illustrated,

the sainsbury Laboratory provides an in-depth look at the important

fields of plant science, architecture and public art.

volume is a book about architecture and design that is also an accessible

treatise about people, buildings, art and craft, mixing thoughts with

imagery, text with design. the book is a journey through the work and

world-view of architecture practice stanton williams that takes the reader

from interviews to project details by way of elegant design and specially

commissioned photography.

volume begins with an essay by critic and historian irénée scalbert,

placing the practice’s work in its cultural and historical context. a

conversation between alan stanton and paul williams explores a passion

for materials, space and light and how they form the backbone of their

ethos, practice and portfolio of buildings. exhibition director ken arnold

follows with an essay on creativity, and architectural and design critic

stephen bayley concludes the book with his own take on the practice’s

work and ethos.

featured projects include: the Millennium seedbank; issey Miyake,

London; compton verney art gallery; belgrade theatre, coventry; casa

fontana, switzerland; the triforium gallery at winchester cathedral;

house of fraser department store, bristol; and padua botanical gardens.

a buiLding for earth sciences at oxford

in portuguese “entre”, the word for “in between”, conjures up connotations

that far exceed its english equivalent. indeed the ‘in between’ is a more

abstract and far-reaching notion: physical, spatial, temporal.

founded in 2002 by carlos teixeira, vazio s/a is as much a working

practice operating through private and public sector commissions,

as it is a research hub for architectural experimentation. the studio’s

integrated vision of design encompasses architecture, landscape

architecture and urban design and, in addition to more conventional

comissions, works collaboratively with artists, performers and social

groups to develop contemplative urban interventions and investigate

relationships between contemporary architecture and culture.

entre explores this multidisciplinary approach by featuring a selection

of projects from spiral rooms exhibited in 2010 as part of architects

build small spaces, at the victoria & albert Museum, London, through

to the installation at the last sao paulo international art biennial, the

other and the same. the projects are vividly conveyed via photographic

documentations of the installations as well as structural diagrams, plans

and elevations and substantiated through a series of contributions by

architecture journalists and practitioners, as well as interviews and

direct interventions by carlos teixeira.

tectonics: a building for earth sciences at oxford documents the design

and building of an ambitious architectural project for oxford university,

by a team including wilkinson eyre architects, pell frischmann, hoare

Lea, Laing o’rourke and ec harris. the title brings together both design

and client teams to explain the story of the project and its context and

commission, highlighting the building’s most interesting features and

describing in detail the architectural minutiae of the building.

Located on a confined site in close proximity to numerous listed buildings,

the intention of the project was to meet its functional and academic remit,

and to signal to the wider public the work, interests and concerns of its

patrons and users.

tectonics features contextual essays by those involved in the project,

as well as critical texts on the building’s architecture. contributors also

provide personal ‘artefacts’ which they feel were central to their

approach in the process of designing the building, and the structure’s

users provide anecdotes and narratives to convey the personality of

the department.

the Founding myths oF arChiteCture

editors: Jens BruensloW, Konrad Buhagiar, guillaume dreyFuss

the founding Myths of architecture brings together and discusses the

work of some of the most influential and intriguing figures in the history

of architecture. by returning to the authentic roots from which modern

architectural thought has sprung, it explores the significance of the

discipline in relation to the evolution of mankind.

the contributors, international leading theorists from a variety of disciplines,

provide fascinating texts that contribute to the broad discussion on

architecture and its relationship with science, nature, art and society. kari

Jormakka, fabio barry, pedro azara, caspar pearson and henry dietrich

fernández are just some of the respected scholars whose writings comprise

this authoritative look at the origins of architectural practice and its

importance to the development of modern society.

by exploring architecture as a basic human instinct, linking contemporary

architecture to ideas surrounding mythology and cosmos and assessing

the importance of architecture from an anthropological viewpoint, the

founding Myths of architecture is a refreshing take on architectural theory.

the œuvres of frank Lloyd wright, Le corbusier, Louis kahn, francesco

borromini, andré Le notre, giorgio grognet and Marcus vitruvius pollio,

amongst others, is visually referenced in relation to these topics.

published in both french and english editions, this collection of essays

pushes the boundaries of architectural criticism by encompassing history

and anthropology in its analysis of design theory and by moving away

from a purely rational and functional understanding of architecture.

with a body of work firmly at the heart of architectural theory and discourse,

robert Maxwell is undoubtedly one of the most respected architectural

writers and educators of recent times. emeritus professor of architecture at

princeton university, robert Maxwell is a scholar known worldwide for

critical writing that looks at modern and contemporary architecture in

relation to our wider culture, including art, literature and music.

a few years of writing interspersed with some facts of Life brings

together a collection of over 30 of Maxwell’s writings from the late

twentieth century to the present, through which are woven events and

occasions from his own diary that expand on debates in the world of

architecture throughout the period.

texts include “richard rogers: an evaluation”, first published in casabella

in february 1994; “sounds and sweet airs at stuttgart”, a review of

the Music school at stuttgart, in the riba Journal in october 1996; an

obituary of philip Johnson in the architectural review, in March 2005;

and “eisenman: the formal basis of Modern architecture”, in building

design in september 2006. this engaging collection, at once intimate

and autobiographical, insightful and perceptive, as well as critical and

theoretical, results in a rich description of the culture of architecture

across two decades towards the close of the last century and during

the early years of the present.

a few years of writing interspersed with some facts of Life is the first

of two ong>booksong> of robert Maxwell’s writing to be published by artifice,

John allan’s amazingly thorough book is essential reading for anyone

interested in what went right and wrong architecturally and socially in

twentieth century britain. the financial times

berthold Lubetkin: architecture and the tradition of progress was originally

published in 1992 by riba publications and is widely regarded as the

definitive account of the life and works of berthold Lubetkin (1901–1990),

britain’s leading Modernist architect. in 1982, at the age of 81, he was

awarded the riba royal gold Medal for architecture and he is believed

to have more listed buildings to his credit than any other twentieth century

architect in britain.

following a 20 year friendship, author and architect John allan documents

unpublished drawings, photographs, and extracts of writing in this richly

illustrated study. allan sets Lubetkin’s work in the wider historical, social

and political environment of the time. from Lubetkin’s early work in paris

in the 1920s, when he was acquainted with renowned architects such as

auguste perret and Le corbusier through to the work of his practice

tecton, the book provides a comprehensive account of his landmark

buildings for London Zoo, finsbury borough council and the famous

highpoint apartments. his post-war work, including the troubled project

to build peterlee new town, is also fully covered.

this updated and comprehensive study is an essential book for students

of architecture and the modern period, practitioners of architecture and

design alike, as well as anyone with an interest in one of the great

figures in twentieth century architecture.

the fragile Monument is a study of the discourse of conservation and its

effect on the notion and role of the monument in contemporary western

society. through a revisionist account of the history of conservation, the

book explores how the monument has been transformed from an object

that originally communicated permanence to an object that is perceived

as fragile and in need of protection.

the argument put forward is that the expansion and popularisation of

conservation is bound to a narrative of loss and danger that reveals a

paradoxical relationship between destruction and preservation. in a

series of case studies, the book shows how spatial devices have been

used to negotiate this paradox and how this use of space has contributed

to the defining of the monument as an object of conservation.

throughout its history, conservation has been surrounded by a polemic

dominated by concepts of authenticity, origin and authorship. by studying

that debate in relation to the case studies, the fragile Monument

adumbrates the implications these concepts carry with them, both for the

discipline of conservation and for the discourse of architecture as

a whole.

identifying and examining particular ‘sites of conflicts’ where critical

uncertainty, ambivalence, and heated debates have surrounded the

‘object’ of restoration, the fragile Monument contributes significantly

to expanding and shifting architectural discourse into a direction of

crucial relevance today.

colonial Modern: aesthetics of the past, rebellions for the future is a

reader on the relationship between modernism and the project of

modernisation in architecture, as well as the intertwining of both in the

context of colonialism and decolonisation.

colonial Modern focuses on the dual topics of the relationship between

the post-war aesthetic regime of modernism and the project of

modernisation in architecture and urban planning. colonial Modern is

based on the exhibition in the desert of Modernity: colonial planning

and after, at the haus der kulturen der welt [house of world cultures] in

berlin and Les abattoirs de casablanca. colonial Modern reflects

contemporary research into architectural modernism and colonialism,

and uses the thesis of “negotiated modernism” to initiate new debates

on conceptions of modernism—and inevitably postmodernism—in an

interdisciplinary context.

the book includes significant texts by nezar alsayyad, Mark crinson,

francoise navez-bouchanine, sven-olov wallenstein and other specialists

in the field, and provides a strong visual representation of the subject

with the work of artists and architects forming a well rounded debate on

issues relating to modernism and colonialism.

... expresses so much that seems missing from the current debate.

swedish Modernism: architecture, consumption and the welfare state

provides an in-depth, multilayered account of the workings, and difficulties

found, in the process of modernisation.

the book explores the construction of the welfare state and provides

insights into the peculiar modalities of this development from the point of

view of sociology and political science, providing a more nuanced view

of ‘modernism’. swedish Modernism then delves into the importance of

consumers and spectacles considered in relation to a wide range of

‘state programmes’, from housing to national marketing programmes,

before dealing with the problems of historiography on a broad level. it

includes contributions from a diverse range of writers, including architects,

researchers and leading academics from across the globe.

swedish Modernism is a comprehensive reader analysing the role of

modern architecture, city planning and consumption in the construction

of the swedish welfare state.

alan colquhoun is one of the guardians of the intellectual conscience

of his generation. reyner banham

alan colquhoun: collected essays in architectural criticism is an

indispensable anthology of writings from one of the most important

voices in architectural history and theory from the last 60 years.

subjecting modern architecture to a strenuous reading far beyond what

it was accustomed to, colquhoun’s meticulous evaluation of modernism

raised the standard of architectural historiography and has influenced

new directions in theory and practice ever since.

including essays from throughout his distinguished career, alan colquhoun:

collected essays in architectural criticism encompasses the clarity of

style and rigorous, erudite analysis that colquhoun has brought to bear

on a diverse range of subjects, including Le corbusier, robert venturi

and denise scott brown, the pompidou centre and postmodernism.

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 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

wide ranging 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.

Marvellous stuff. wilson’s profoundly, quietly important book is strongly

recommended for all thinking architects. building design

the other tradition of Modern architecture: the uncompleted project

is a re-edition of an essential work by colin st John wilson, architect of

the british Library and one of the most eminent voices in architectural

theory and practice of the last 50 years.

in the other tradition, st John wilson sets out to examine the underlying

themes of modern architecture, assessing their impact, influence,

and continuing development. st John wilson argues for a continuing

tradition, an “uncompleted project”, sustained against the congrès

international d’architecture Moderne’s (ciaM) rigid orthodoxy by a

“resistance movement” exemplified by architects such as alvar aalto,

hans scharoun, hugo häring and frank Lloyd wright.

st John wilson’s original, insightful and passionate text is accompanied

by photographs, plan drawings, sketches and models that further

elucidate his argument. as important now as it was when first published

the other tradition of Modern architecture: the uncompleted project is

a handsome re-edition of a seminal work.

a great read from a great writer. architecture today

the strange death of architectural criticism is a collection of 100

essays and articles by Martin pawley, one of the most important and

entertaining voices in post-war architectural criticism. a former editor

of building design, pawley was later architecture critic for the guardian

and the observer.

spanning pawley’s 40 year career, the strange death of architectural

criticism is a celebration of his remarkable body of work. the book

includes writings on contemporary design, iconic buildings and some of

the most important issues facing modern architecture as well as

interviews with architects including norman foster, buckminster fuller,

Leon krier and Zaha hadid. by turns poignant, controversial and

humorous this book is a reminder of how exhilarating architectural writing

at its best can be.

passion, plants and patronage takes readers on a luscious voyage

through three centuries of bute family commissioned gardens. art,

architecture and landscape have come together under the generous

patronage of the butes and, today, their commissions rank amongst

the jewels of british national heritage.

from the enlightenment view of gardens as repositories of botanic

knowledge, to the current tradition of contemporary art patronage,

this volume celebrates the bute family’s commitment to the pursuit

of culture and nature in their gardens through the generations.

kristina taylor and robert peel are both experts in the heritage and

conservation of gardens. this volume is the culmination of years of

research and offers a rich and fascinating insight into the commissions,

contexts and ‘lives’ of bute landscapes, in a language that is both

informed and informal. from dumfries house, falkland, Luton, cardiff,

highcliffe and kew gardens through to st John’s Lodge in London’s

regent’s park, a wealth of visual documentation eloquently complements

their essays, affording a truly privileged view into the beautiful gardens

of the bute family from the eighteenth century to today.

originally published by the architecture press in 1963, the italian

townscape was written by hubert de cronin hastings (1902–1986),

under the pseudonym of ivor de wolfe, with photographs taken by him

and his wife hazel (alias ivy de wolfe). he claimed to have invented

the word “townscape”, and used his position as proprietor/editor of

the architectural review to promote it as a technique to inspire the

creation of historically layered, visually stimulating, dense cities in the

period of reconstruction and new towns.

the theory of townscape was originally developed by hastings in

collaboration with the architect, planner and illustrator gordon cullen,

whose book of this name, published in 1961, remains a standard work.

in the italian townscape, hastings made his own statement, sharing

his worries about the blandness of modern consumer society and

celebrating italian towns and cities as a theatrical background for

everyday life. writing at a time when english people were migrating to

the suburbs and cars were destroying the conviviality of cities, hastings

anticipated the return in recent decades to an ideal of public space,

where “the only true happiness lies at the centre”.

hastings/de wolfe rekindles our appreciation for individual urban

elements: articulating his analysis through disparate themes: from the

more obvious: “streets”, “advertising” and “pedestrian network”, to

typically idiosyncratic ones: “defensive armour”, “constipation”, “toughies”

and “sissies” and “all creeping things”. the photographs evoke the italy

of fellini’s films, making it a forgotten classic of travel and photographic

publishing whose lessons remain relevant today.

past professor of architecture and cultural history at the university of

greenwich, alan powers, and professor erdem erten of the university

of izmir in turkey contribute a new introduction to this reprint, restoring

the identity of hastings as an author and his role in architecture and

planning debates from the 1930s to the 1970s.

a wide-reaching study. building design

instant cities is a major volume that explores and assesses the

phenomenon of the contemporary metropolis. touching on the historical

context of humanity’s earliest settlements in the ancient world, instant

cities focuses on the development of the concept of the city and how it

has been expanded to include sites from shopping malls to prisons, as

well as various ‘micro’ communities within society.

instant cities analyses the current stratospheric rise of the city, looking

at global megacities from the developed to the developing world.

with building space at a premium international and environmentallysound

development of tremendous importance to the future of the

planet, instant cities looks ahead, to creative, forward-thinking and

possibly fanciful notions of the city, such as biospheres, space stations

and virtual realities.

education and creativity studies the future of the knowledge and creative

economies. the education sector will be key to the continued success

of our economies, but these will need to adapt to significant changes

in their demographic mix coupled with higher social expectations.

transports and neighbourhoods is a thorough examination of the future of

travel, in terms of personal mobility and commerce. as the environment

becomes more fragile, existing transportation networks in all cases

become more strained.

work and the city explores how climate change will affect the way we

work and live. proving competitive advantage may be a daily struggle

for large parts of the world’s workforce as the outsourcing of work

gathers pace, in particular to the rapidly growing economies of china

and india.

Living and community investigates shifts in the social fabric of our

communities that will be necessitated by environmental change. the

current period of conspicuous consumption will come to an end, requiring

more locally-sufficient and resource-careful lifestyles.

globalism and regionalism considers the impact that dwindling resources

and restricted travel will have on global competitiveness and regional

identity, with competition between countries deemed likely to increase.

a provocative study of daniel Libeskind’s Jewish Museum

extension at the berlin Museum. raoul bunschoten

introduces hélène binet’s photographic interpretation of

Libeskind’s most important work to date.

an ‘architectural novel’ things worth seeing provides a

description of and visit to the fictional european city

of w. the city is experienced through its touristic sights,

described in various ways through drawings, guidebook

facts and figures, and through dialogues recording the

passage of an observer visiting the city today.

Metaspaces sets out chora's approach to architecture

and urbanism. their methodology focuses on erasure,

origination, transformation and migration. the book

includes a cd that demonstrates animated versions

of the urban game and dynamic Modelling, amongst

other of chora's methodologies.

Metis: urban cartographies is simultaneously an

architectural storybook and guide, leading the reader

through a landscape of recoded urban elements,

‘fields’, conditions and texts. this journey documents a

series of innovative architectural procedures, dealing

with representation, chance and narrative.

the photographs selected for four urban projects demonstrate a

connection to the urban landscape recurrent throughout hausrucker-co.’s

quarter-century collaboration. the group’s interactions

with, interventions into, disruptions to, and reframings of the city

sought to shift public perceptions of everyday urban experience, by

locating the ‘human scale’ within the metropolis and initiating new

modes of spatial consciousness.
