  • (Non-) Essential Knowledge for (New) Architecture: 306090:15

    (Non-) Essential Knowledge for (New) Architecture: 306090:15

    What is essential knowledge for architecture? This frequently posed question targets fundamental principles of design, those basic criteria and priorities through which disciplinary stability is ensured. (Non-) Essential Knowledge for (New) Architecture collects projects that envision possible futures for architecture through speculations about new disciplinary knowledge. Asking what specific methods, materials, or understandings: tools, ratios, formulas, properties, principles, guidelines, definitions, rules, practices, techniques, reference points, histories, and more, not presently considered essential to architecture could, or should, define its future; this new volume of 306090 serves as both a gauge of contemporary concerns and a manual for emergent theory and practice.

  • 12 Tales With Little Houses

    12 Tales With Little Houses

    Michele De Lucchi has never been an architect among others. He projects houses to be inhabited but at the same time he whittles, using an inusual tool like a motor saw, little houses of a world beyond time. They are made of wood, no limits and rules material that seems to live its own life, that registers time's passing like the human skin and obliges who whittles it to face unexpected changes while working. This book presents twelve little houses with twelve reflections on the continuous and day-by day fight, typical of the man and the architect in particular, against Time, Space, sunlight, styles and our own consciousness. A book that reveals a hidden side of one of the most poliedric and appreciated italian architects in the world. With an introduction by Marco Pogliani and a note by Francesco Dal Co.

    3+2: Durbach Block Jaggers

    3+2 is a 'double album': two books in one sleeve beautifully printed by master offset printers in Japan. It features two bodies of photography looking at the work of one of Australia's most respected and awarded architectural practices -- Durbach Block Jaggers. Photographers Andrew Cowan and Julia Charles worked with the architects, alongside the award winning-designer Mark Gowing and editor Andrew Mackenzie, to refine a portrait of images over a period of several years.The two photographers, Andrew Cowan and Julia Charles, are neither known for, nor particularly interested in, the conventions of architectural photography. This makes their photographic voice, and this book, distinct from the architectural mainstream.

    5 + 2 Landscapes Lutzow 7

    This book presents the landscape architecture of Lutzow 7, who owe their long-standing reputation to the civic open spaces that they have designed for the German Chancellery, the Reichstag building and the Jewish Museum in Berlin. They have produced about one thousand projects over the years - seven of which (or more exactly 5 built and 2 under construction) from Germany, Belgium, Italy and Ireland - form the main parts in this landscape-architectural monograph. Other sections strive to grasp the essence of Lutzow 7's approach to landscape design in a panoramic portfolio and also in a directory to important design tasks and typical solutions in the realm between wilderness and detail. Tom Sieverts, the creator of the "in-between city" paradigm, and Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, Canadian pioneer of the return to nature-oriented design and well acquainted with the partners Cornelia Muller and Jan Wehberg's work, contribute their personal views.
