  • Anatomy and Construction of the Human Figure (Dover Art Instruction)

    Anatomy and Construction of the Human Figure (Dover Art Instruction)

    Karton Kapak
    To draw or paint human figures truly, an artist must have as much understanding of bones and muscles as of form. This beautiful guide by a respected artist and teacher provides that knowledge. Realistic plates of bones and muscles show form and function, while full-color images make graphic distinctions between bone, muscle, and tendon. Drawings throughout the book emphasize fundamentals of anatomy and show simple methods of building the forms.Author Charles Earl Bradbury (1888-1967) takes a two-part approach in this  book. The first part features a self-contained treatment of the bones of the skeleton and how they relate to the body's outline and muscle masses. The second focuses on muscles and their actions, showing how they are constructed and how they look in the human form. Male and female structures are compared and contrasted throughout the text. Designed specifically for classroom use, this volume is also a priceless reference.

  • Paradise Transformed: The Private Garden for the Twenty-First Century

    Paradise Transformed: The Private Garden for the Twenty-First Century

    Sert Kapak
    The last two decades have seen a great explosion in the diversity, functionality, and beauty of modern garden design. The first major survey of contemporary private gardens, this book explores the imaginative ideas behind landscape design today. Lush color photographs, supported by plans, drawings, and lively commentary, thoroughly document gardens by twenty-eight leading landscape architects, featuring work in the United States, Europe, Japan, and Australia. An international roster of designers is represented here, illustrating acknowledged masters, such as Dan Kiley and Ian Hamilton Finlay, in addition to vital young talents, including Kathryn Gustafson and Susan Child. In each of the categories in Paradise Transformed -- tradition, abstraction, innovation, and exploration -- a distinct approach to the private landscape is revealed, achieved in original ways by each designer. The modernist aesthetic, translated from architecture, painting, and sculpture, gives form to these marvelous private spaces. Architectural and artistic influences displayed in these gardens include Art Deco, Cubism, Surrealism, Modernism, Postmodernism, Minimalism, and the Earthworks of the 1960s and 1970s. Some of the main tenets of the contemporary garden are: greater emphasis on gardens for personal use, not just plant display; the rejection of historical styles as total models and the incorporation of new concepts involving technology, architecture, and site; a variety of design themes, including symmetrical, asymmetrical, and curvilinear modes and their interplay; and a breakthrough to an ecological and regional awareness of the landscape.

  • How to Read a Play

    How to Read a Play

    Karton Kapak
    How to Read a Play is an introductory guide to the art of translating the printed page of a play or screenplay into dramatic mental images; it has been a classic among actors, directors, and writers for the past twenty years. Now fully updated and revised, the book devotes a chapter exclusively to screenplays, noting the intrinsic differences between a screenplay and a playscript and thus bringing this invaluable classic up to date.

  • Post-Ductility: Metals in Architecture and Engineering (Columbia Books on Architecture, Engineering, and Materials)

    Post-Ductility: Metals in Architecture and Engineering (Columbia Books on Architecture, Engineering, and Materials)

    Sert Kapak
    The third book in the series from Columbia University is focused on metals. Metals, as surface or structure as the generators of space play a role in nearly every strain of modernization in architecture. They define complete geographies of work, production, and political life. Non-architectural metals delivered in automobiles, and hard goods in the United States and worldwide have all been sourced as the engines of the sprawling late twentieth-century city in all of its forms. But in the received aspects of architectural history, metals, and in particular steel, remain less diluted; they are presented as intrinsic to the profession as material precedes concepts they are carriers of architectural meaning. Few concepts are as central in structural engineering as the ability of a material to sustain plastic deformation under tensile stress the standardization of historically known deformation limits or ductile properties in most materials allows architects and engineers to keep the analysis of structure within known parameters of finite element analysis rather then materials science. If the goal is avoid fracture, the boundaries are set and the limits of ductility are observed. Post-Ductility refers to the literal aspects of material behavior in this case of metals but also of aspects of architectural and urban space that are measured by less verifiable but nonetheless real quotients of stress and strain. It is the tension and compression of space that gives form or coherence to form. In either the case of engineering and architecture, formerly daunting degrees of risk seem to have been diminished; new levels of sophistication in calculation lower the risk tolerance for fracture, while more metaphoric readings of limits in architectural and urban space seem to have been long surpassed, at times with abandon. The counter-effort has been quite strong if not successful: there are those that want to recreate dense cities by means of compression and there are immense forces of spatial extension by way of economics, communication and transit. Space is pulled to elastic limits and made thin as highly malleable materials such as gold or lead as it is also often re-compressed as forms of urban density. If metals are a significant origin for architecture and indeed whole cities—from buildings to automobiles and labor, then what are the limits or equations that offer a new evaluation of both metals, but also of material in a wider sense, as a determining component of the built world? What does an engineer and architect bring to this arena in both local and global circumstances?
