"Architects play an essential role in contemporary society, helping to shape the environment in which we live and work. This book explores how architects in Japan have responded to the demands of their times and how they continue to engage with new economic realities and the shifting global order. The moving image of Japanese society is reflected in the work of the architects profiled tin this book: from the generation rising from the ashes of postwar Japan, through the postwar economic boom, to the generation that quietly gathered strength during the recession of the 1970s; from the generation that debuted in the bubble economy of the 1980s to the generation that began their work after the Great Hanshin-Awaji earthquake and the collapse of the bubble economy; and finally, after decades of economic stagnation, to the generation that has come to the fore since the early twenty-first century. Contemporary Japanese architects have pioneered developments in sustainability and introduced engineering innovations that have changed not only the look of modern buildings but the ways in which they can be constructed. Japanese design concepts, realized in major public buildings around the world, communicate with a global audience and contribute toward shaping our shared future" --

The Tyrant-slayers of ancient Athens : a tale of two statues
Azoulay, Vincent, author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, 2017
This investigation relies on a rash bet: to write the biography of two of the most famous statues in Antiquity, the Tyrannicides. Representing the murderers of the tyrant Hipparchus in full action, these statues erected on the Agora of Athens have been in turn worshipped, outraged, and imitated. They have known hours of glory and moments of hardships, which have transformed them into true icons of Athenian democracy. The subject of this book is the remarkable story of this group statue and the ever-changing significance of its tyrant-slaying subjects. The first part of this book, in six chapters, tells the story of the murder of Hipparchus and of the statues of the two tyrannicides from the end of the sixth century to the aftermath of the restoration of democracy in 403. The second part, in three chapters, chronicles the fate and influence of the statues from the fourth century to the end of the Roman Empire. These chapters are followed by an epilogue that reveals new life for the statues in modern art and culture, including how Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union made use of their iconography.0By tracing the long trajectory of the Tyrannicides - in deed and art - Azoulay provides a rich and fascinating microhistory that will be of interest to readers of classical art and history.

Naoya Hatakeyama : excavating the future city
Hatakeyama, Naoya, 1958- artist,
New York, N.Y. : Aperture ; 2018
For the past thirty years, Japanese photographer, Naoya Hatakeyama, has undertaken a photographic examination of the life of cities and the built environment. Each of his series focuses on a different facet of the growth and transformation of the urban landscape-- from studies of architectural maquettes to the extraction and use of natural materials such as limestone, as it is quarried via explosive blasts and subsequently incorporated into the construction of new buildings. In particular, Hatakeyama has routinely returned to the Tokyo-Yokohama metropolis, exploring this ever-evolving urban sprawl from both below and above, mapping the growth and expansion of these sites over time. Additional series focus on other forms of human intervention with the landscape and natural materials, including factories and building sites in Japan and abroad. Finally, his most recent photographs of his hometown of Rikuzentakata, a fishing town that was almost completely destroyed by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, are also included-- an ongoing series begun almost immediately following the disaster. These photographs hauntingly embody the death and rebirth of the city, manifesting a deeply personal connection to the ongoing intersection of geology, architecture, and time. Exhibition: Minneapolis Institute of Art, USA (04.03.- 22.07.2018).

Sally Mann : photographs and poetry
Mann, Sally, 1951-
New York : Published by Steven Albahari, 21st, 2006
See -- It's all true -- To evoke what, like a dream, was lost -- In sleep she becomes a softer country -- My cautious world -- Where measurement holds no sway -- Your spirit floated silently -- He wakes in the night -- Measurement has become useless -- Maybe it was the daffodils that gave out the foamy.

Whistler's mother : portrait of an extraordinary life
Sutherland, Daniel E., author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
A child of two worlds, 1804-31 -- Wife and mother, 1832-43 -- Russia, 1843-44 -- Impatient reformer, 1845-49 -- A widowed mother, 1849-54 -- Sojourner, 1854-60 -- The manager, 1860-67 -- The mother, 1867-72 -- Onlooker, 1872-81 -- Icon, 1881-2018.

Discover the extraordinary woman behind one of the most famous images of motherhood in Western art Judged by the portrait Arrangement in Gray and Black No. 1 (1871), painted by her son James McNeill Whistler, Anna Whistler (1804-1881) appears to have been a pious, unassuming, domestic woman. This characterization, however, is far from the whole truth. Anna was born in the slaveholding South, raised principally in Brooklyn, New York, and resided for many years in both Russia and Great Britain, and her life was filled with adventure and excitement. The authors' unprecedented use of her private diaries and correspondence results in a crisp biographical rendering that reveals a resilient, vibrant, bright, and deeply engaged woman. In her writings, Anna made shrewd observations about the social, cultural, artistic, and political issues of her era, which was one of enormous and near-constant change. She knew and interacted with an astonishing array of people, from Russian peasants and American farmers to Robert E. Lee and Giuseppe Mazzini. She also raised one of the finest artists of the nineteenth century. As her son made his way in the art world, Anna became his unofficial agent, promoting his work, managing his finances, and advising him on the best opportunities for success. That he, in turn, should immortalize her as a global celebrity and international icon of motherhood was only appropriate.

The shape of craft
Shales, Ezra, author
London : Reaktion Books, 2017
Archetypes: who is a craftsman? -- Today's craftspeople in an expanded field -- Organic or industrial? Weaving cane and welding steel -- Weaving as a magic carpet ride -- Time in glasscraft -- Conclusion: mnemosynthesis.

"Today, the word 'craft' is linked to a vast array of items from handmade objects to microbreweries. 'Artisanal' is so overused that it can strain our credulity. But this also reveals that the value of craft remains compelling in modern life. In this cogently argued book, Ezra Shales explores some of the key questions about craft: who makes it, what we mean when we think about a craft object and what that means to our understanding of what craft is. Along the way, he continually upends our definitions and typical expectations of what we think is handcrafted or authentic. His discussion ranges widely across people and objects: from potter Karen Karnes to weaver Jack Lenor Larsen and glass sculptor Dale Chihuly to Native American basket maker Julia Parker as well as younger makers such as Sopheap Pich and Maarten Baas, and to the porcelain and cast-iron sanitary ware produced by the Kohler Company, the pottery made in Stoke on Trent, and the people in Asia today who weave beautiful things for IKEA. Engaging, pertinent and direct, the book ultimately encourages us to feel the shape of craft in our own lives."--

As it may be = ممكن / Bieke Depoorter
Depoorter, Bieke, photographer
New York, N.Y. : Aperture, 2018
Magnum photographer Bieke Depoorter has traveled to Egypt regularly since the beginning of the revolution in 2011, making intimate pictures of Egyptian families in their homes. In 2007, she revisited the country with the first draft of this book, inviting others to write comments directly onto the photographs. Contrasting views on country, religion, socioety, and photography arise between people who would otherwise never cross paths. As it may be depicts a population in transition with integrity, commitment, and respect.

Degas : a passion for perfection
edited by Jane Munro
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2017]
Introduction : 'a passion for perfection'? / Jane Munro -- Degas and England / Richard Kendall -- Copying and learning / Jane Munro -- Degas's greasy ink drawings / Timothy J. Standring -- Nudes / Jane Munro -- Landscapes / Jane Munro -- Painting in focus : At the café / Jane Munro -- Degas, classicism, dance / Jill DeVonyar -- The sculpture of Degas : production and reproduction / Victoria Avery and Jo Dillon -- After Degas / Anna Gruetzner Robins.

A beautiful celebration of six decades of work by Edgar Degas, published in the centennial year of the artist's death. Edgar Degas's (1834-1917) relentless experimentation with technical procedures is a hallmark of his lifelong desire to learn. The numerous iterations of compositions and poses suggest an intense self-discipline, as well as a refusal to accept any creative solution as definitive or finite. Published in the centenary year of the artist's death, this book presents an exceptional array of Degas's work, including paintings, drawings, pastels, etchings, monotypes, counter proofs, and sculpture, with approximately sixty key works from private and public collections in Europe and the United States, some of them published here for the first time. Shown together, the impressive works represent well over half a century of innovation and artistic production. Essays by leading Degas scholars and conservation scientists explore his practice and recurring themes of the human figure and landscape. The book opens with a study of Degas's debt to the Old Masters, and it concludes with a consideration of his artistic legacy and his influence on leading artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Francis Bacon, Frank Auerbach, Ryan Gander, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, R. B. Kitaj, Pablo Picasso, and Walter Sickert.

Anatomy, round two -- 28. The world and its waters -- 29. Rome -- 30. Pointing the way -- 31. The Mona Lisa -- 32. France -- 33. Conclusion ; -- Coda: Describe the tongue of the woodpecker.

"He was history's most creative genius. What secrets can he teach us? The [bestselling biographer] brings Leonardo da Vinci to life in this exciting new biography. Drawing on thousands of pages from Leonardo's astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work, Walter Isaacson weaves a narrative that connects his art to his science. He shows how Leonardo's genius was based on skills we can improve in ourselves, such as passionate curiosity, careful observation, and an imagination so playful that it flirted with fantasy. His creativity, like that of other great innovators, came from standing at the intersection of the humanities and technology. He peeled flesh off the faces of cadavers, drew the muscles that move the lips, and then painted history's most memorable smile on the Mona Lisa. He explored the math of optics, showed how light rays strike the cornea, and produced illusions of changing perspectives in The Last Supper. Isaacson also describes how Leonardo's lifelong enthusiasm for staging theatrical productions informed his paintings and inventions. His ability to combine art and science, made iconic by his drawing of what may be himself inside a circle and a square, remains the enduring recipe for innovation. His life should remind us of the importance of instilling, both in ourselves and our children, not just received knowledge but a willingness to question it; to be imaginative and, like talented misfits and rebels in any era, to think different."--Jacket.

Supports in Roman marble sculpture : workshop practice and modes of viewing
Anguissola, Anna, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Introduction -- Part I. Material and History: 1. Narrative and individuality ; 2. Supports and Greek marble sculpture ; 3. The world of struts ; 4. Surface and colour -- Part II. The Limits of Stone: 5. The quest for solidity ; 6. Statuesque statues ; 7. Value and ingenuity ; 8. Carving and tradition -- Conclusion.

"Figural and non-figural supports are a ubiquitous feature of Roman marble sculpture; they appear in sculptures ranging in size from miniature to colossal and of all levels of quality. At odds with modern ideas about beauty, completeness, and visual congruence, these elements, especially non-figural struts, have been dismissed by scholars as mere safeguards for production and transport. However, close examination of these features reveals the tastes and expectations of those who commissioned, bought, and displayed marble sculptures throughout the Mediterranean in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Drawing on a large body of examples, Greek and Latin literary sources, and modern theories of visual culture, this study constitutes the first comprehensive investigation of non-figural supports in Roman sculpture"--

Queering the Interior
edited by Andrew Groman-Murray and Matt Cook
London, UK : Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2018
"Queering the Interior problematizes the familiar space of 'home'. It deploys a queer lens to view domestic interiors and conventions and uncovers some of the complexities of homemaking for queer people. Each of the book's six sections focuses on a different room or space inside the home. The journey starts with entryways, and continues through kitchens, living spaces, bedrooms, bathrooms, and finally, closets and studies. In each case up to three specialists bring their disciplinary expertise and queer perspectives to bear. The result is a fascinating collection of essays by scholars from literary studies, geography, sociology, anthropology, history and art history. The contributors use historical and sociological case studies; spatial, art and literary analyses; interviews; and experimental visual approaches to deliver fresh, detailed and grounded perspectives on the home and its queer dimensions. A highly creative approach to the analysis of domestic spaces, Queering the Interior makes an important contribution to the fields of gender studies, social and cultural history, cultural studies, design, architecture, anthropology, sociology, and cultural geography."--

Picturesque and sublime : Thomas Cole's trans-Atlantic inheritance
Barringer, T. J., author
Catskill, New York : Thomas Cole National Historic Site ; [2018]
Thomas Cole (1801-1848) is widely acknowledged as the founder of American landscape painting. Born in England, Cole emigrated in 1818 to the United States, where he transformed British and continental European traditions to create a distinctive American idiom. He embraced the picturesque, which emphasized touristic pleasures, and the sublime, an aesthetic category rooted in notions of fear and danger. Including striking paintings and a broad range of works on paper, from watercolors to etchings, mezzotints, aquatints, engravings, and lithographs, this book explores the trans-Atlantic context for Cole's oeuvre. These works chart a history of landscape aesthetics and demonstrate the essential role of prints as agents of artistic transmission. The authors offer new interpretations of work by Cole and the British artists who influenced him, including J.M.W. Turner and John Constable, revealing Cole's debt to artistic traditions as he formulated a profound new category in art. the American sublime.

Flach, Tim, photographer
New York : Abrams, in association with Blackwell & Ruth, 2017
In Endangered, the result of an extraordinary multiyear project to document the lives of threatened species, acclaimed photographer Tim Flach explores one of the most pressing issues of our time. Traveling around the world--to settings ranging from forest to savannah to the polar seas to the great coral reefs--Flach has constructed a powerful visual record of remarkable animals and ecosystems facing harsh challenges. Among them are primates coping with habitat loss, big cats in a losing battle with human settlements, elephants hunted for their ivory, and numerous bird species taken as pets. With eminent zoologist Jonathan Baillie providing insightful commentary on this ambitious project, Endangered unfolds as a series of vivid, interconnected stories that pose gripping moral dilemmas, unforgettably expressed by more than 180 of Flach's incredible images.

In the shadow of the Raj : Derry Moore in India
Moore, Derry, artist,
Munich ; Prestel, [2017]
"Derry Moore captures the India's unique visual identity from its Ancient and Medieval temples, through the Mughal period, up to the architecture of the European colonial era. In so doing, he captures the essence of India at a time before the homogenizing tide of globalization swept the country. Moore's architectural photographs of richly decorated temples, imposing colonnades, intricate multifoil arches, and formal gardens reflect the interaction between British and Indian styles. Featuring black-and-white photographs of the grand palaces and lavish, marble ballrooms that embody India's past, this book also explores Moore's portraits of cultural icons, high society women, as well as some of the servants and staff who form a continued, yet fading, presence within the architectural spaces. This comprehensive book will appeal to anyone who has a love of India, and the often breathtakingly beautiful, and timeless aesthetics of India's past, which can only be seen in the shadow of its present."--

The work of MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects : economy as ethic
McCarter, Robert, 1955- author
London : Thames & Hudson, 2017
An architecture of dialogue : lessons in architectural syntax / Juhani Pallasmaa -- Economy as ethic : critical practice and the cultivation of place / Robert McCarter -- Private houses -- Public architecture : place and occasion / Talbot Sweetapple -- Public places -- Origins / Brian MacKay-Lyons -- The work of MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple / Kenneth Frampton -- Postscript : the wind, the moon -- Awards.

The work of MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects embodies two interrelated primary principles: economy and place. Economy as an ethical imperative leads to creating the 'maximal' experience with minimal form, material, and cost. Reinforcing this imperative is the architects' engagement of their place of practice, coastal Nova Scotia, and its climate, landform, and material culture. The practice has evolved plan types that allow the architects to engage the land and climate of their native Nova Scotia, and is also focused on the importance of the interior spatial experience. The work of MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple is predicated on the belief that what really matters in architecture is not fashion and form but the material culture of building and the making of places. The result, evident in the more than two hundred projects featured in the book, is both practical and poetic.

Geometric computation : foundations for design
Ko, Joy, author
Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2018
"Geometric Computation: foundations for design applications describes the mathematical and computational concepts that are central to the practical application of design computation in a manner tailored to the visual designer. Uniquely pairing key topics in code and geometry, this book develops the two key faculties required by designers that seek to integrate computation into their creative practice: an understanding of the structure of code in object-oriented programming, and a proficiency in the fundamental geometric constructs that underlie much of the computational media in visual design."--

Diamond Mountains : travel and nostalgia in Korean art
Soyoung Lee ; with Ahn Daehoe, Chin-Sung Chang, and Lee Soomi
New York : The Metropolitan Museum of Art, [2018]
An introduction to the Diamond Mountains -- Jeong Seon's Album of Mount Geumgang / Lee Soomi -- Picturing Diamond Mountains : True views and beyond / Soyoung Lee -- The landscape before the eyes : Mounts Geumgang, Fuji, and Huang / Chin-Sung Chang -- In praise of the Diamond Mountains : literary journeys / Ahn Daehoe.

"The Diamond Mountains, known in Korea as Mount Geumgang, are perhaps the most famous and emotionally resonant site on the Korean Peninsula, a breathtaking range of rocky peaks, waterfalls, lagoons, and man-made pavilions. For centuries the range has inspired cultural pride and a vast outpouring of creative expression. Yet since the partition of Korea in the 1940s, situating them in the North, the Diamond Mountains have remained largely inaccessible to visitors, shrouding the site in legend, loss, and longing. This book examines the visual representation of this remarkable landscape from the 18th century to the present day. It explores how Jeong Seon (1676-1759) revolutionized Korean painting with his Diamond Mountains landscapes, replacing conventional generic imagery with specific detail and indelibly influencing generations of artists in his wake. It also discusses the potency of these mountains as an emblem of Korean cultural identity, as reflected in literature and in exquisitely detailed album leaves, handscrolls, hanging scrolls, and screens. This magnificent volume is the first in English to survey this rich artistic tradition and bring these distant mountains into view"--

They drew as they pleased. The hidden art of Disney's late golden age : the 1940s, Part two
Ghez, Didier, author
San Francisco : Chronicle Books, 2017
The storytellers -- 1. Eduardo Solá Franco -- 2. Johnny Walbridge -- 3. Jack Miller -- 4. Campbell Grant -- 5. James Bodrero -- 6. Martin Provensen.

"Walt Disney always envisioned the studios that bear his name remaining relevant by consistently taking creative risks and doing the unexpected. Heading into the 1940s, he crafted an entirely new division of the studio called the Character Model Department, which focused solely on the details of character development. This latest volume from famed Disney historian Didier Ghez profiles six remarkable artists from that department, sharing uncommon and never-before-seen images of their influential work behind the scenes. With vivid descriptions and passages from the artists' journals, this visually rich collection offers a rare view of the Disney artists whose work gave rise to many classic Disney characters, and who ultimately rewrote the future of character creation in animation."--Publisher's description.

Andrei Sharov
Sharov, Andrei (Artist), artist,
Milano, Italy : Skira, 2016
Andrei Sharov is a multidisciplinary artist of international repute whose projects have taken him all over the world. Like countless artists before him, Sharov is enthralled by theatre and dance and is a celebrated designer of costumes and stage sets. He is a couturier of great originality and flair, a photographer, and also a painter of note, with his temperament inevitably leading him toward the expressionistic, dramatic, and extravagant--a hallmark of all his projects--and toward increasingly brilliant, combustible hues. Because he works across disciplines, even though they might overlap, he does not want to belong to any particular group of artists, preferring the independence of an outsider. -- From page 7.

New York, New York : D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, Inc., 2017
"Since the 1990s, Thomas Struth has been one of the most renowned and influential photographers of the German art scene. A brilliant conceptualist with an unerring eye for color, Struth studied painting under Gerhard Richter and photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher, a combination that decisively influenced his vision. This volume collects more than 120 representative photographs from each series in Struth's oeuvre, including: early street photographs from the 1970s and '80s ('Unconscious Places'); the "Family Portraits" series; the "Museum Photographs"; "Nature and Politics"; the jungle photographs ("New Pictures from Paradise"); and, from his latest series, images from the realm of science. Also included are previously unpublished works from the photographer's archive. The largest and most comprehensive survey of the artist's work to date, this superbly illustrated volume includes scholarly essays by curators Thomas Weski and Ulrich Wilmes, as well as photographer Jana-Maria Hartmann. An interview with the artist by Okwui Enwezor, Director of Haus der Kunst, provides valuable insight into Struth's career and ideas."

The Louisiana book
Dijkstra, Rineke, 1959- photographer
Louisiana, Denmark : Louisiana Museum of Modern Art ; 2017
In her large photographs and films, Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra manages to capture people who have stopped somewhere - in a park, on a beach, at a party, in life - so that they are present to an astonishing degree, right there in that very moment. The artist is typically interested in transitions, the stages of life when we are on the way to becoming ourselves plus something else. Adolescents who stand somewhat insecure in swimsuits on the beach. The dancer who is fully immersed in music at a club. The young person who has put on a military uniform. The woman who has just given birth.

Paris : Centre Pompidou ; [2017]
"A pioneering artist in film, photography, video art and performance, Indian artist Nalini Malani is a transition figure between the modern and contemporary art of her country. Her work, which criticizes the political situation in India, is based not only on an iconography typical of the subcontinent's culture, but also on Western artistic and literary tradition. Through this circuit Nalini Malani evokes the concepts underlying her work: utopias, dystopia, and her vision of India and the position of women throughout the world. The Centre Pompidou is staging France's first retrospective of the Indian artist Nalini Malani."

Ornament is Crime is a celebration and a thought-provoking reappraisal of modernist architecture. The book proposes that modernism need no longer be confined by traditional definitions, and can be seen in both the iconic works of the modernist canon by Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Walter Gropius, as well as in the work of some of the best contemporary architects of the twenty-first century. This book is a visual manifesto and a celebration of the most important architectural movement in modern history.

Making beauty : the Ginori Porcelain Manufactory and its progeny of statues
edited by Tomaso Montanari and Dimitrios Zikos ; with the collaboration of Cristiano Giometti and Marino Marini
Florence : Mandragora, [2017]
The porcelain of Doccia made its mark on the history of artistic manufactory with its refined production inspired by Antique masterpieces. The catalogue, rich with illustrations, accompanies the exhibit staged by the Museo Nazionale del Bargello, providing useful tools for visitors so as to reconstruct and examine the development of the artefacts of this particular production technique, in general, and specifically to trace the history of the Doccia manufactory's success. The essays are divided in two parts: the first reconstructs the history of the manufactory opened by the Marquis Ginori in 1735 and the state of art produced in studios of porcelain. The second provides a series of case studies dedicated to the more interesting themes regarding the reproduction in porcelain of great ancient sculptures, as well as some more significant works realized by the manufactory, like the Tempietto of Cortona or the great Fireplace. The catalogue concludes with a series of entries elaborating on the 17 works featured in the exhibit. Exhibition: Museo Nazionale del Bargello, Florence, Italy (18.05.-01.10.2017).

Modern vintage homes & leisure lives : ghosts & glamour

"Search for Hours in a Dark Room": Finding vintage -- 6. Expertise, Knowledge & Inherited Memories -- 7. Dressing Up and 'Wardrobe Moments' -- 8. 'Sensual and Imaginative': Glamour & the Vintage Body -- 9. Virtual & Physical: Vintage Places & Spaces -- 10. Conclusion: "I Like Living with the Past". .

This book explores the meanings and practices of vintage lives. It focuses on the non-mainstream subculture of vintage clothes and lifestyle, specifically that of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, and asks how those engaged in the culture place themselves within the gendered and classed contexts of these eras. As a result, it also identifies the tensions involved in these identities connected to a past that offered little gain for women and narrow gender roles for both women and men. The book is based on original empirical international data about a group of people who wear vintage clothing all of the time and whose homes are styled entirely, or almost entirely, vintage. It aims to understand the meanings of vintage for them through their daily practices and accrued knowledge. Through interviews and direct observations of vintage events it also explores questions about the acquisition, display and curation of vintage clothes, homes and objects, about glamour and wardrobes, about the history of second-hand markets, and emotional durability and ideas about ghosts, hauntings and spectral remains.

Embeddding graphic devices in understanding the complete codex: externalizstion and internalization: The cross on the book: diagram, ornament, materiality / David Ganz -- Graphic glosses and argumentative ornament / Herbert L. Kessler.

The early medieval decorated book illuminates our understanding of the processes of cultural transition from late Antiquity to the Middle Ages and from a trans-continental super-power to western and eastern nation states and revivals of empire - Byzantine and Carolingian. The study of 'graphicacy' (graphic devices, such as inscribed letters and decorative symbols, used to convey information on the text) is emerging as a pivotal tool for understanding how the graphic architecture of the book played a role in the dissemination and reception of thought. The essays in this volume add to the growing scholarship on the medieval schematic and diagramming imagination, exploring some of the many ways in which the spatial arrangement and patterning of text, graphic sign, and figural image generated meaning for medieval viewers, readers, and performers of the written word. Among the individual topics addressed are monograms; the appearance of the cross in early medieval Christian manuscripts; and Anglo-Saxon decorated initials.

Frank Lloyd Wright : buildings for the prairie
Milwaukee, Wisconsin : Milwaukee Art Museum, 2017
In celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright's 150th birthday, the Milwaukee Art Museum presents Frank Lloyd Wright: Buildings for the Prairie featuring a selection of the famed architect's designs from the Wasmuth Portfolio and examples of his furniture, stained glass and textiles. Although highly regarded as one of the best American architects of his generation, by 1909 Wright had reached a professional impasse. Spurred by his inability to gain commercial commissions and his scandalous affair with a former client, Wright left for Italy and Germany in 1910. In Florence, Wright found inspiration in his architectural surroundings, and there he worked on illustrations and text for a monograph on his work to be published by the Berlin firm of Ernst Wasmuth. The Wasmuth Portfolio introduced the architect's work to his European contemporaries and is largely credited with profoundly influencing the direction of 20th-century architecture. Collectors and museums alike prize the portfolio for its historic importance and for the beauty of the images. Exhibition: Milwaukee Art Museum, USA (28.07.-15.10.2017).

Ancient ivory : masterpieces of the Assyrian empire
Herrmann, Georgina, author
London : Thames & Hudson, 2017
Preface: from discovery to destruction -- Introduction: masterpieces of ancient ivory -- The city of Nimrud and it's discovery -- Ah, Assyria! -- The Phoenicians: master craftsmen -- Syro-phoenician ivories -- The ivories of North Syria -- the influence of regionalism on furniture and the minor arts -- The age of Ivory.

Ivory is a wonderful material: tactile, beautiful, workable into many different forms and the strongest in the animal kingdom. Unfortunately for the elephant, it has been highly prized from the Palaeolithic to the present day, in part by virtue of its rarity and the difficulty of acquiring it. During the early first millennium bc - the "Age of Ivory" - literally thousands of carved ivories found their way to the Assyrian capital city of Kalhu, or modern Nimrud, in northern Iraq. The majority were not made there, in the heart of ancient Assyria, but arrived as gift, tribute or booty gathered by the Assyrian kings from the small neighbouring states of the ancient Middle Eastern world. The ivories were first unearthed in the mid-19th century by renowned Victorian traveller and adventurer Austen Henry Layard, but it was not until the mid-20th century that the extent of the treasure was realized by Max Mallowan, the archaeologist husband of Agatha Christie. Thousands of extraordinary ivories have since been excavated from the ruins of the ancient city's extravagant palaces, temples and forts.

In the process, they offer a treasure trove of ideas for home owners, practitioners, and interior designers, where professional experimentation intersects with day-to-day living in contemporary spaces showcasing diverse design concepts tailor-made to specific locations, costs, and materials, detailed in 400 photographs, drawings, and plans. This lavishly illustrated book brims with ideas and inspiration from many of the world's best architects, from Thom Mayne and Jim Olson to Jennifer Benningfield, about where and how they live and how we can all live more comfortably, too.

In 2015, the storied fashion house Fendi moved its headquarters into the Palazzo della Civilta Italiana in Rome, a stark white cube perforated by symmetrical arches. Originally commissioned as part of an exhibition on Roman civilization for the 1942 world's fair, the architects took their cues from ancient history to create a building that was quintessentially Roman yet decidedly modern, earning its nickname the Square Colosseum. Because of its striking appearance and iconic status, the palazzo subsequently made appearances in a number of films by directors such as Roberto Rossellini, Federico Fellini, and Peter Greenaway. The building remained relatively abandoned throughout much of its existence, until its recent inhabitance by the always forward-thinking house of Fendi, an experience which Karl Lagerfeld has likened to being on a spaceship transported into the future.

Meret Oppenheim : works in dialogue from Max Ernst to Mona Hatoum
edited by Guido Comis, Maria Giuseppina Di Monte
Milano : Skira Editore, 2017
Museo d'arte della Svizzera italiana presents the exhibition 'Works in dialogue from Max Ernst to Mona Hatoum', dedicated to one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century, shown here alongside major exponents of the Dada and Surrealist movements as well figures of importance on the contemporary art scene. The works exhibited reveal the close-knit relationships between Meret and the older and often already established artists of that day and age; most importantly, however, they underscore the independence of this artist, who was close to Surrealism not because she wished to emulate it, but because she saw in Breton's movement the expression of a sensibility that was similar to her own:'It is not I who looked for the Surrealists, it is they who found me'. The exhibition thus releases Meret Oppenheim from the image of muse and model that has often unfairly obscured her work in the past.

The Paston treasure : microcosm of the known world

New Haven : Yale Center for British Art ; 2018
The Paston Treasure, a spectacular painting from the 1660s now held at Norwich Castle Museum, depicts a wealth of objects from the collection of a local landed family. This deeply researched volume uses the painting as a portal to the history of the collection, exploring the objects, their context, and the wider world they occupied. Drawing on an impressive range of fields, including history of art and collections, technical art history, musicology, history of science, and the social and cultural history of the 17th century, the book weaves together narratives of the family and their possessions, as well as the institutions that eventually acquired them. Essays, vignettes, and catalogue entries comprise this multidisciplinary exposition, uniting objects depicted in the painting for the first time in nearly 300 years.

The field of representation / by Jessica Morgan -- Some facts, notes, data, information, statistics, and statements / by Walter De Maria -- The Lightning field / photography by John Cliett -- Technical development of the Lightning field, 1976-1977 / by Robert Fosdick -- Photographic image recording of the Lightning field, 1978-1979 / by John Cliett.

"Walter De Maria: The Lightning Field presents never-before-seen photographs of this Land art masterpiece and its surrounding western New Mexico landscape. Photographer John Cliett was commissioned by Walter De Maria and Dia Art Foundation to document this enigmatic artwork over two seasons in 1978 and 1979, but until now nearly all the resulting shots remained in the artist's archives. Tracing the course of a typical twenty-four hour visit to the site, the selection of images shows, for the first time, the rich complexity of site and land. This publication also includes the artist's 1980 text on The Lightning Field, "Some Facts, Notes, Data, Information, Statistics, and Statements," originally published in Artforum; a selection of unpublished primary documents from Dia's and the artist's archives, including the photographer's own notes and reports; and an essay by Dia director Jessica Morgan on De Maria's complex relationship with photography." -- Publisher's description

Perfection's therapy : an essay on Albrecht Dürer's Melencolia I
Merback, Mitchell B., author
New York : Zone Books, 2017
An "Allegory of Deep Speculative Thought" -- Restless Eye, Captive Mind -- Therapies of the Image in the Age of Dürer -- The Narrative Quality of Melancholia -- The Artist as Medicus, Part 1 : Practices of the Self -- The Artist as Medicus, Part 2 : Soul Services.

Albrecht Dürer's famous portrayal of creative effort in paralysis, the unsurpassed masterpiece of copperplate engraving titled 'Melencolia I', has stood for centuries as a pictorial summa of knowledge about the melancholic temperament, a dense allegory of the limits of earthbound arts and sciences and the impossibility of attaining perfection. Dubbed the "image of images" for being the most zealously interpreted picture in the Western canon, 'Melencolia I' also presides over the origins of modern iconology, art history's own science of meaning. Yet we are left with a clutter of mutually contradictory theories, a historiographic ruin that confirms the mood of its object. In 'Perfection's Therapy', Mitchell Merback reopens the case file and argues for a hidden intentionality in 'Melencolia's' opacity, its structural "chaos," and its resistance to allegorical closure. That intentionality, he argues, points toward a fascinating possibility never before considered: that Dürer's masterpiece is not only an arresting diagnosis of melancholic distress, but an innovative instrument for its undoing. Merback deftly resituates Dürer's image within the long history of the therapeutic artifact. Placing Dürer's therapeutic project in dialogue with that of humanism's founder, Francesco Petrarch, Merback also unearths Dürer's ambition to act as a physician of the soul. Celebrated as the "Apelles of the black line" in his own day, and ever since as Germany's first Renaissance painter-theorist, the Dürer we encounter here is also the first modern Christian artist, addressing himself to the distress of souls, including his own. 'Melencolia' thus emerges as a key reference point in a venture of spiritual-ethical therapy, a work designed to exercise the mind, restore the body's equilibrium, and help in getting on with the undertaking of perfection.

SCDA landscape
SCDA Architects
Mulgrave, Victoria : Images Publishing Group Pty Ltd, 2017
SCDA Landscape forms an integral part in the firm's holistic approach to design that integrates architecture, interiors and landscape. Reinforcing a dialogue between Internal and External space, projects range in scale from private residential homes, hotels and resorts to mixed-use developments and master plans in various countries within Asia, North America and Europe. The approach follows an inherent classical flow of space, with layering of hardscape and planting elements forming outdoor rooms, extensions of internal living spaces. Proportion, materiality and detail are defining elements that create serene, enduring and defined spaces that enhance the negative spaces between buildings. Sculpture, furniture and lighting are considered at the conceptual stage, important elements in the formation of the overall landscaped approach. The sensory experience of water is utilised and integrated with contemporary landscape elements to structure space, define hierarchy and strengthen the sense of place.

Die Macht der Gottheit im Bild : archäologische Studien zur griechischen Götterstatue
Hölscher, Fernande, author
Heidelberg : Verlag Antike, [2017]
"Im antiken Griechenland suchten die Menschen, der Gottheit im dinglichen Gegenüber zu begegnen. Seit früher Zeit gab es Orte, die als Erinnerungsstützen für die Präsenz der Götter dienten, die halfen, die Götter, wie sie vor allem durch Homer und Hesiod vermittelt waren, zu imaginieren. Dem gegenüber wurde mit Kultbildern in größerem Format seit dem 8./7. Jahrhundert v. Chr. eine neue Qualität erreicht: Die Götter standen nun leibhaftig vor den Augen der Verehrenden, die sie wie ihresgleichen pflegten, an andere Orte brachten, mit Dank und Bitten in ihr persönliches Leben einbezogen. Die Nähe, die sich in Gestalt der Götterstatuen als 'Personen' auftat, war späteren rationalen Kritikern suspekt, welche die Materialhaftigkeit der Bilder in den Vordergrund stellten und damit die 'lebendige' Macht der Götterbilder leugneten. Die These dieser Zusammenschau der Kultbilder vom 8. bis zum 4. Jahrhundert v. Chr. ist jedoch, dass man durchweg Strategien entwickelte, diese Materialität in Ritualen und Geschichten zu überspielen, weil man das lebendig erfahrene Bild zum nahen Umgang mit der Gottheit brauchte. Von der Macht der Gottheit im Bild aus erschließen sich mehrere Riten und Mythen um griechische Kultbilder neu"--Back cover.

After celebrating its twentieth anniversary with three blockbuster exhibitions in 2017, the Fondation Beyeler and is starting the year 2018 with Georg Baselitz - without a doubt one of the most influential painters and sculptors of our time - is celebrating his eightieth birthday, and the Foundation is devoting an extensive retrospective to this charming provocateur. Many of Baselitz's most important paintings and sculptures from the past six decades will be seen together for the first time. By displaying key works together, on an equal footing, it becomes easier to perceive the unique wealth of his formal and contextual innovations. Leafing through more than two hundred richly illustrated pages, the reader encounters the beautiful, the ugly, the ambiguous, and the disturbing.

Klimt and Schiele : drawings : from the Albertina Museum, Vienna
Katie Hanson
Boston, M.A. : MFA Publications, [2018]
Provocative tensions -- Gustav Klimt drawings -- Egon Schiele drawings -- Artist biographies.

"Klimt and Schiele: Drawn" examines both the divergences and compelling parallels between the two artists - particularly in their provocative depictions of the human body. Nearly 30 years apart in age, Klimt and Schiele shared a mutual respect and admiration for each other's talent. Yet, their work is decidedly different in appearance and effect: Klimt's drawings are often delicate, while Schiele's are frequently bold. Klimt often used these sheets as preparatory designs for paintings, while Schiele considered his drawings to be independent pictures and routinely sold them. Both deployed frank naturalism, unsettling emotional resonances, and disorienting omissions to challenge conventions and expectations in portraits, nudes, and allegories. Organized thematically, this selection of 60 drawings begins with the artists' academic origins and then investigates how each shifted away from traditional training to more incisive and unconventional explorations of humanity.

The renowned Argentinian conceptual artist David Lamelas (born 1946) has an expansive oeuvre, which shows his work to be evocative, restive, and exhilarating. This book, published to coincide with the first monographic exhibition of the artist's work in the United States, offers an incisive look into Lamelas's art. The guiding analytic theme in this book is the artist's adaptability to place and circumstance, which invariably influences his creative production. Lamelas left Argentina in the mid-1960s to study at Saint Martin's in London. Since then, he divides his time among various cities. While the typical narrative invoked about artists like Lamelas is that of 'internationalism, ' Lamelas has always been more 'postnational' than 'international' in his nomadic movement, from one place or conceptual framework to the next.00Exhibition: The University Art Museum, Long Beach, California, United States (17.09.-10.12.2017).

Director's foreword / David M. Roche -- Collector's statement / Norman L. Sandfield -- Cat Tail Bird -- Dancing on the world stage -- Era of florescence -- At the Garden of the Gods -- Poetry in metal -- An Awa Tsireh metalwork gallery -- Studies in attribution -- Other metalsmiths at the Garden of the Gods -- A hallmark sampler -- Travel distances -- Family tree -- Acknowledgments.

"Alfonso Roybal, better known as Awa Tsireh (meaning Cat Tail Bird in the Tewa language), was born in the small pueblo of San Ildefonso, New Mexico, in 1898. He became arguably the finest Native American painter of the first half of the 20th century. He was written about at length, and his watercolors were shown in museums and galleries across the country, often with the assistance of distinguished patrons. To date, the authors have documented more than four hundred of Awa Tsireh's paintings in numerous private collections and more than thirty museums. Awa Tsireh's metalwork in silver, copper, and aluminum is a completely different story. This book brings together more of his metalwork than has previously been shown in one setting. Awa Tsireh created jewelry, platters, and other serviceware at the Garden of the Gods Trading Post in Manitou Springs, Colorado, where he worked with other Native silversmiths, many to date unidentified, in the summer months during the 1930s and 1940s. Rarely has Awa Tsireh's metalwork bought by Trading Post visitors made its way into museum collections. Awa Tsireh's recognizable and charming imagery and the quality of his hand and imagination, however, illuminate all of his pieces. His metalwork is further evidence that the Pueblo artist's talent transcended medium, material, and milieu."--Verso of cover (front flap).

Splendour of the Burgundian Netherlands : Southern Netherlandish illuminated manuscripts in Dutch collections
As-Vijvers, Anne Margreet W., author
Zwolle : WBOOKS, [2018]
This book presents a survey of ninety of the finest and most interesting medieval manuscripts produced in the southern Netherlands - present-day Belgium - which ended up in Dutch public collections at various points in time. This largely unknown cultural heritage is displayed here in a vast panoramic context ranging from the tenth to the mid-sixteenth century. The painted scenes in these handwritten books are not only of a high artistic quality, but also present a richly-textured picture of medieval life. The emphasis is on the role of books in the society of the Middle Ages: they served as expressions of sumptuousness on the part of the aristocracy, as richly-decorated books for church services, and as cherished objects used by affluent burghers for their private devotion. The authors also devote attention to the large-size, superbly-illustrated works of history and literature that were produced under the patronage of the dukes of Burgundy. Other subjects include the Order of the Golden Fleece, the artistic ties between the northern and southern Netherlands, pilgrim badges, and the transition from manuscripts to printed books.

Brassaï (1899-1984) was a key member of a group of European and North American photographers who, over the course of the 20th century, managed to redefine the identity and enrich the potential of photography as an artistic medium. The main theme of his work was Paris, the subject matter for some of his most significant and renowned images. He captured vibrant images of the daily life of the city, especially the vitality of its night-time atmosphere, in a vivid expression of the powerful artistic dimension of his perspective. The evocative capacity of his images achieved unquestionable recognition that spread from artistic photography circles to the tourist industry and the commercial photography circuit.

Some 250 works explore three distinct periods in American history when mainstream and outlier artists intersected, ushering in new paradigms based on inclusion, integration, and assimilation. The exhibition aligns work by such diverse artists as Charles Sheeler, Christina Ramberg, and Matt Mullican with both historic folk art and works by self-taught artists ranging from Horace Pippin to Janet Sobel and Joseph Yoakum. It also examines a recent influx of radically expressive work made on the margins that redefined the boundaries of the mainstream art world, while challenging the very categories of "outsider" and "self-taught." Historicizing the shifting identity and role of this distinctly American version of modernism's "other," the exhibition probes assumptions about creativity, artistic practice, and the role of the artist in contemporary culture. The exhibition is curated by Lynne Cooke, senior curator, special projects in modern art, National Gallery of Art.--Provided by publisher.

Bruce Nauman : disappearing acts
edited by Kathy Halbreich with Isabel Friedli, Heidi Naef, Magnus Schaefer, and Taylor Walsh
New York, NY : The Museum of Modern Art ; [2018]
Bruce Nauman is widely acknowledged as a central figure in contemporary art, and the stringent questioning of values --both aesthetic and moral-- that has long sustained his project remains urgent today. For more than fifty years, Nauman has explored how mutable experiences of time, space, sound, movement, and language provide an insecure foundation for our understanding of our place in the world. This richly illustrated catalogue, which includes rare and previously unpublished images, offers a comprehensive view of the artist's work in all media --including drawings; early fiberglass sculptures; sound environments; architecturally scaled, participatory constructions; rhythmically blinking neons; and a recent 3-D video that harks back to one of Nauman's earliest performances. A wide range of authors --artists, curators, and historians of art, architecture, and film-- focus on topics that have been largely neglected, such as the architectural structures that posit real or imaginary spaces as models for ethical inquiry and mechanisms of control. Curator Kathy Halbreich's introductory essay explores Nauman's many acts of disappearance, withdrawal, and deflection as revelatory of his central formal and intellectual concerns. Eighteen further contributions tease out the various themes that run through this protean and elusive artist's work.

The twelve silver-gilt cups known as the Aldobrandini Tazze - magnificent examples of 16th-century European goldsmithing in size, design, and quality of execution - feature figures and scenes from Roman historian Suetonius's classic work The Twelve Caesars, all rendered in minute, intricate relief. Dispersed in the 1860s, the tazze were reunited in 2014 for the first time since the 19th century, each piece newly photographed to highlight the dazzling detail and show the works as they were originally made. The accompanying essays, written by a team of scholars from around the world, explore the persistent questions that swirl around these unique silver dishes, including where, when, and for whom they were originally made, what they were used for, and why the set was separated and scattered.

Skaters : tintype portraits of west coast skaters
Sampson, Jenny, photographer,
[Chapel Hill, NC] : Daylight Community Arts Foundation, [2017]
"The portraits in Skaters compel the subject, the photographer, and the viewer to slow down. These images, created with wet plate collodion, offer an honest glimpse into the skateboarders' core being: pensive, tough, playful, anxious, distracted, and innocent. Even the plates of seemingly empty skate parks are in fact teeming with immense energy and motion, yet the skaters are moving too quickly to be captured with long exposures."

Utopia's doom : the graal as paradise of lust, the sect of the free spirit and Jheronimus Bosch's so-called Garden of delights
Vandenbroeck, Paul, author
Leuven : Peeters, 2017
The so-called 'Garden of delights' by Jheronimus Bosch (c. 1450-1516) remains an absolutely iconic work in European art history. The highly complex and enigmatic image has frequently been interpreted as a paradisiacal utopia, in which people indulge playfully in erotic pleasure in harmony with nature. It is a visual utopia framed before Thomas More had actually coined the word in a book whose entirely unfrivolous blueprint for society could hardly differ more from Bosch's phantasm. More traditional art historians have identified Bosch's masterpiece as a painted warning against the sins of the body, more specifically that of 'lust,' citing the image of Hell in the right wing in support. Vandenbroeck argues that these two interpretations need not preclude one another: Bosch painted a phantasmagorical false paradise that leads inexorably to ruin. He drew his inspiration from folk ideas about a semi-earthly, semi-supernatural erotic paradise or grail, in which those who entered could live in a dream-world of unbridled pleasure. But only until Judgement Day, upon which they would all wind up in Hell.

Imminent commons : commoning cities : Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2017
edited by Helen Hejung Choi and Hyungmin Pai
New York, NY : Actar Publishers, [2017]
The third book from the Seoul Biennale 2017 explores the value and meaning of cities as commons, which is embedded and operate in various governance mechanisms of cities in the world. 'Imminent Commons: Commoning Cities' presents questions and answers concerning the current state and near future of cities of the world through the lens of public initiatives, projects, and urban narratives. Cities are searching for new possibilities that will help them survive and thrive within new systems of municipal governance. The strategies of cities with regard to rapid urbanization, scarcity of public resources, and privatization of commons will be examined through the diverse spectrum of focused projects. It also discusses the present and future of cities as commons in the 21st century through examining various ways the cities use to deliberate, operate, imagine and execute their policies for the city.00Exhibition: Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism, South Korea (02.09.-05.11.2017).

Massive, expressive, sculptural : brutalism now and then
Uffelen, Chris van, author
[Salenstein, Switzerland] : Braun Publishing Ag, 2018
Die Bauten des als Brutalismus bezeichneten Architekturstils entstanden vor allem in den 1960er- und 1970er-Jahren und wirken bis heute kompromisslos, verwegen und unglaublich kühn. Seinen Namen verdankt er der französischen Bezeichnung ?brut?, also dem rohen Material. Die danach jahrzehntelang als Stiefkind der Moderne geschmähte Architektur erlebt gerade ein Comeback ? als neueste Entdeckung digitaler Trendsetter.0Nebst dieser Faszination in den sozialen Netzwerken inspiriert der Brutalismus auch die heutige Architektursprache. Raumgreifende skulpturale Formen, grob bearbeitete Materialien, aber auch die Auflösung von überkommenen Grundrisskonzepten verschmelzen mit zeitgenössischem Design zu spannenden Neuschöpfungen. Das Buch bietet eine differenzierte Gegenüberstellung brutalistischer Gebäude der Nachkriegszeit und heutiger Bauwerke und arbeitet heraus, wie sich diese in Bezug auf Aussehen, Gesamt- oder Detailentwurf auf die Vergangenheit beziehen.

The modern A frame
photography by Ben Rahn ; introduction by Chad Randl
Layton, Utah : Gibbs Smith, [2018]
"The A-Frame home surged in popularity in the 1950s, and has captured the public's imagination with its playfully modern, steep-sloping roofline ever since. The Modern A-Frame celebrates seventeen diverse accounts of these minimalists cabins reinvented for the twenty-first century. Nostalgic escapes, heritage homes, full-time simplicity, and artists at work categorize the A-frames whose engaging stories are shared. Whether fabricated from a 1960s kit or as a new build via retro inspiration, the variety of styles and homeowners in this photo-driven collection beautifully captures the romance of a classic structure, which beckons to travelers and homebuyers today, just as it did sixty years ago. Perfect for the architectural enthusiast, midcentury-minded designer, or armchair traveller."--

Elen Deming with Kathleen Harleman -- Afterword / Robert B. Riley. Appendices : Contributors -- Curriculum vitae and project list -- Publications list.

The modernist history of landscape architecture is deeply marbled with veins of regional and phenomenological sensibility. Master designer Terence G. Harkness reflects this sensibility in every region he inhabits - whether the foothills of northern California, the high plains of North Dakota, or the prairies of east central Illinois. His work and teaching is essentially and critically eco-revelatory. Yet because Harkness is not principally a scholar, his work has not been widely studied. That omission is redressed by this presentation of Harkness' most significant and recognisable works, including drawings, plans, models, and photographs. Contributors to the book chronicle Terence G. Harkness' development and values, positioning him in the currents of contemporary landscape discourse.

Mass timber : design and research
Jones, Susan (Architect), author
[Novato, CA] : Oro Editions, [2017]
Mass Timber: Design and Research' presents new research and design work with Mass Timber, a new construction technology, well-known in Europe, but relatively unfamiliar to the United States. Leading the Mass Timber design dialogue in the US, the author, Susan Jones, an architect in Seattle, Washington, has been pioneering the new, innovative use of wood over the past six years, since she built her own family's house from cross-laminated timber in 2015 in a neighbourhood in Seattle. The book presents her Seattle firm, her family, and her University of Washington students' years of research and design. Opening with the story of three generations of her family's own sustainable forest practices, the book presents research into Pacific Northwest forestry, timber and Cross-Laminated Timber manufacturing practices, to carbon analysis and carbon comparisons between standard building construction assemblies and technologies.

Renaissance porticoes and painted pergolas : nature and culture in early modern Italy
Nonaka, Natsumi, author
London : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2017
Introduction -- Mediating spaces: portico, loggia, and pergola -- Classical tradition and vernacular culture: Villa Farnesina and the First Loggia of Leo X -- Visual encyclopedia and trellised walkways: Medici Gardens and the Villa d'Este -- Pictorial fiction and cultural identity: Villa Giulia and Villa Farnese -- Wunderkammer and trompe-l'ioeil garden: Palazzo Altemps and the Loggia of Cardinal Borghese -- Collecting nature: virtual flora and fauna -- Epilogue.

This book is the first study of the portico and its decorative program as a cultural phenomenon in Renaissance Italy. Focusing on a largely neglected group of porticoes decorated with painted pergolas that appeared in Rome and environs in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, it tells the story of how an element of the garden--the pergola--became a pictorial topos in portico decoration, and evolved, hand in hand with its real cousin in the garden, into an object for cultural emulation among the educated patrons of early modern Rome. The liminality of both the portico and the pergola at the interface of architecture and garden is key to the interpretation of these architectural and painted forms, which rests on the intersecting frameworks of the classical tradition, natural history, and the cultural identity of the aristocracy. In the mediating space of the Renaissance portico, the illusionism pergola created an art gallery, a natural history museum, and a virtual garden where one could engage in leisurely strolls, learned conversations, appreciation of art, and scientific investigation, as well as extensive travel across time and space. The book proposes the interpretation that the illusionistic pergola was an artistic formula for the early modern perception of nature.

Towards a robotic architecture
Mahesh Daas, Andrew John Wit, editors
Novato, CA : Applied Research and Design Publishing, an imprint of ORO Editions, [2018]
The past decade's surge towards more computationally defined building systems and highly adaptable open-source design software has left the field ripe for the integration of robotics whether through large-scale building fabrication or through more intelligent/adaptive building systems. Through this surge, architecture has not only been greatly influenced by these emerging technologies, but has also begun influencing other disciplines in unexpected ways. The purpose of this book is to provide systems of classification, categorisation, and taxonomies of robotics in architecture so that a more systematic and holistic body of work could take place while addressing the multifarious aspects of possible research and production.

Carlos Amorales : axioms for action
Amorales, Carlos, 1970- author,
Ciudad de México : MUAC, Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, UNAM : 2018
This show is a mask : axioms for action (1996-2018) / Carlos Amorales, Cuauhtémoc Medina -- Axioms for action 1996-2018 / Carlos Amorales -- List of works -- Black cloud (aftermath) / Carlos Amorales -- A mask plays the flute / Carlos Amorales -- The matter of language as seen from three of many house / Maria Barnas -- Carlos Amorales from a Dada perspective / Dawn Ades -- Amorales proliferation / Cuahtémoc Medina -- Biographical sketch.

The exhibition Carlos Amorales: Axioms for Action is conceived as a script and a list of works such that each institution and curator who presents it can stage and execute it differently. In this way, each venue will present an interpretation of the matrix of Amorales's work, as well as a compendium of his oeuvre.This first exhibition drawn from this project, presented at the MUAC, includes a group of works that have not yet been seen in Mexico. It aims to make evident both the flexibility of the script and the possibility of taking up the Axioms for Action within a specific and imaginative curatorial project in which the architecture of the museum is interpreted in tension with the space of Amoralesœs studio in Mexico City. By the same token, the show also emphasizes the pairing of film and installation.

Nomadic living : relocatable residences
editor, Sibylle Kramer
[Salenstein, Switzerland] : Braun Publishing AG, 2018
The four walls that we inhabit are far more than just a roof over our heads - it's the place where our personal and unique life is played out with all its complexities and nuances. It is not uncommon when we move to feel regret that we cannot simply take our abode, the focus of our lives, along with us. For many people it is increasingly important to be able to move easily, to be able to react spontaneously to personal desires or life changes of all kinds. Because of the increased needs to both preserve our identity that is rooted in our home and to be more geographically mobile, the market for "movable" houses has grown and diversified. This is most noticable in the growing numbers of commissions received by architects and designers for technical and creative conceptions of mobile houses. As much as concept, appearance and construction might vary greatly from house to house, what unites all of the projects presented in this volume is the claim to a design that is both larger than life and consistently compelling.
