  • 3+2: Durbach Block Jaggers

    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

    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.

As early as the design stage the planner must begin to think about where the water is going to come from, where it is going to drain, and how it is going to be cleaned.

    Beauty Redeemed: Recycling Post-Industrial Landscapes

    Coping with post-industrial brownfields is an issue throughout Europe and North America.

    Best of Detail: Landscape

    Sometimes it is possible to truly merge nature and architecture. Best of Detail: Landscape presents highlights of the past few years from DETAIL: buildings that disappear into their surroundings, lush meadows revealed as roof scapes only after closer inspection, paths and walkways through jungle-like gardens. Architecture and cities can no longer be counterpoints to nature and the landscape. Rather they should strive to create stunning symbioses.

  • Bonsai NEW EDITION

    Bonsai NEW EDITION

    Bonsai is a collection of exquisite photographs of bonsai trees. Arranged by month, this new edition features many seasonal examples of these exquisite miniature trees throughout the year, now in a more compact format. Bonsai is the art of growing miniature potted trees. It is a true art form that requires special techniques of pruning, wiring, fertilising and watering. In addition to enjoying the visual aesthetic of bonsai trees, people also appreciate the effort put into their creation and cultivation. In Japan, these graceful creations are often displayed in living rooms as symbols of the beauty of nature. During the Edo period, bonsai became a popular hobby enjoyed by nobles and common people alike, and it is still a popular pastime for enthusiasts all over the world. Over the years, bonsai has come to be considered more of an art form than a simple hobby because of the appreciation and patronage of bonsai by people of noble birth, including the Japanese Imperial Family.

  • Cartographic Grounds: Projecting the Landscape Imaginary

    Cartographic Grounds: Projecting the Landscape Imaginary

    Mapping has been one of the most fertile areas of exploration for architecture and landscape in the past few decades. While documenting this shift in representation from the material and physical description toward the depiction of the unseen and often immaterial, Cartographic Grounds takes a critical view toward the current use of data mapping and visualization and calls for a return to traditional cartographic techniques to reimagine the manifestation and manipulation of the ground itself. Each of the ten chapters focuses on a single cartographic technique-sounding/spot elevation, isobath/contour, hachure/hatch, shaded relief, land classification, figure-ground, stratigraphic column, cross-section, line symbol, conventional sign-and illustrates it through beautiful maps and plans from notable designers and cartographers throughout history, from Leonardo da Vinci to James Corner Field Operations. Mohsen Mostafavi, dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, introduces the book.
