  • Fresh Dialogue 8: Designing Audiences / New Voices in Graphic Design

    Karton Kapak
    Each year the New York chapter of AIGA brings together emerging designers for Fresh Dialogue, a panel discussion thatprovides a forum to present and talk about work, thoughts, and ideas. Designing Audiences takes a fresh look at graphic design through the eyes of three young designers, all of whom have embraced a media landscape dominated by user-centric social networking sites such as MySpace, Flickr, and YouTube. Playing with the notion of designer as visual interlocutor, they craft conversations where viewers become participants and the relationship between design and its consumers is radically redefined.This lively Fresh Dialogue volume includes designers from a variety of media: Stefan Bucher with his wildly popular DailyMonster series; Eric Rodenbeck with the Flickr mapping brainchild Mappr as well as live data visualizations at Digg Labs; and Katie Salen with Karaoke Ice, the traveling karaoke ice cream truck. Designing Audiences is a stimulating andentertaining discussion of the changing role of the designer in the era of constant feedback. The moderator is popular onlinepersonality Ze Frank, creator of the web-based "the show with zefrank," stand-up comic, and soon-to-go-Hollywood charmer.

  • Artificial Light: A Narrative Inquiry into the Nature of Abstraction, Immediacy, and Other Architectural Fictions

    Karton Kapak
    Author Keith Mitnick's first glimpse of an architectural drawing came through the underside of a glass kitchen table.Overcome by the sight of blueprints created for an addition to the family's tract house, the young boy spontaneously vomited on his father's shoes. Now an architectural professional and educator, Mitnick finds himself thinking and writing theoretically about moments like these, when architecture makes itself felt, immediately and palpably. Balanced precariously betweenpractice and theory, Mitnick refuses to put contemplation over experiencearchitectural thinking over making. Unconvinced by those who proclaim the death of theory, Mitnick maintains that architectural discourse need not disappear entirely; it need only change shape and break free from the tired, post-structuralist narratives with which it has become associated in the past couple of decades.Artificial Light suggests an alternative type of critical theory consisting of personal and fictitious anecdotes, real and fake photographs, and mini-essays that addresses prevalent themes in architecture such as immediacy, affect, abstraction, atmosphere, realness, and banality. With a narrative style reminiscent of other unconventional writers on design such as Paul Shepheard, Roger Connah, and Rebecca Solnit, Artificial Light is the beautifully written and visually engaging debut of a dynamic new voice in the world of architectural criticism.

  • A House for My Mother: Architects Build for their Families

    Karton Kapak
    Building a house for one's parents is a time-honored way for many architects to begin their careers, to showcase experimental ideas, or simply to honor the people who raised them. From these houses we can gain clearer insights about the designers' ideas on form, space, style, and place. These houses offer rich insight into the client-architect relationship, and they give elegant architectural expression to ideas about home, family, and childhood memories. A House for My Mother features 25 houses designed over the last 50 years by various architects for their mothers, fathers, in-laws, and extended families. Included are the well-known works of recognized designers as well as early works from promising young architects. Extensive interviews with the architects and their families reveal the joys and difficulties of these very personal commissions. The houses offer innovative and affordable designs, in a variety of styles and building materials, for homes ranging from city dwellings to beach houses and mountain retreats. As the architects were generally given broad control over the design, these homes showcase the ideas that characterize their work. The architects in this collection include Natalye Appel, Peter Bohlin, Walter Chatham, Charles Gwathmey, Steven Izenour, Donna Kacmar, Robert Kahn, Mark and Jean Larson, Joanna Lombard and Denis Hector, Robert Luchetti, Suzanne Martinson, Richard Meier, Charles Menefee, Mark Simon, Laurinda Spear and Bernardo Fort-Brescia, Robert Venturi, and Paul Westlake.

  • In The Wilds: Drawings by Nigel Peake

    Sert Kapak
    In the Wilds is a collection of artist Nigel Peake's hand-drawn observations of rural life. From the trees, fields, lakes, and rolling hills that define the country landscape, to the farm houses, tractors, fences, and telegraph poles that build it, Peake's obsessively detailed pencil and ink drawings and beautifully muted watercolors capture the slow moving rhythm of his surroundings. In a time when everyone seems to be seeking relief from the fast pace of everyday life, In the Wilds offers an escape to a countryside as timeless as it is idyllic.

  • Inside Prefab: The Ready-made Interior

    Karton Kapak
    As an inherently sustainable and affordable building method, prefabrication has enjoyed a revival in recent years, attracting clients and architects alike. Low construction costs, efficiency, and sustainability make prefabrication an attractive solution for contemporary interior designers. Off-site production for interior design elements has been the norm for centuries, from the first Asian paper screens to the packaged kitchens of the mid-twentieth century, but it has rarely been the topic of serious discussion. In Inside Prefab, author Deborah Schneiderman offers a fascinating history of prefabricated interior design, followed by twenty-four contemporary case studies. The richly illustrated examples in this book range from interior walls, kitchens, bathrooms, furniture, and offices to complete prefabricated house interiors. This first book-length discussion and showcase of the prefabricated interior environment includes projects by established architects such as Shigeru Ban, Atelier Tekuto, and Greg Lynn, as well as up-and-coming firms

  • Making a Case: 306090 Volume 14

    Karton Kapak
    Making a Case focuses on contemporary housing in the United States and the future of the American home. Like the Case Study program after World War II, it seizes on a critical moment in the history of America as a time to reinvent the single-family dwelling unit post-crisis rather than post-war. The crisis in this case is the collapse of the housing bubble, with its partnering causes and aftershocks: the reality of less oil, the urge to reurbanize, and the results of economic reorganization. Organized in two sections, design cases and commentary, Making a Case draws together international contributors from a variety of disciplines to address this critical moment for housing in America.

  • Postcolonial Spaces

    Karton Kapak
    The postcolonial world is currently undergoing rapid development and?dramatic change. Radical interventions are drastically altering the?physical landscape of these regions, resulting in new and unfamiliar?environments. While these changes employ the most current structural?technologies, building types, and planning ideals, the critical discourse?used to analyze these developments continues to focus on traditional?dualities such as West/non-West, modern/traditional, and global/regional.??The eight essays in this collection aspire to explore new languages for?rethinking contemporary architectural and urban conditions in the?postcolonial world. In so doing, the authors challenge the convictions?central to most studies of non-western archite cture-that is, the pursuit?of essential singular identities and the glorification of immemorial?pasts. Each essay investigates a particular textual, architectural, or?urban site within larger concerns related to the postcolonial condition.?Topics include rereading Beatriz Colomina's text on Adolf Loos's house for?Josephine Baker; analyzing political and ethical aspects of Jean Nouvel's?Arab World Institute, and exposing the cacophony of Pacific Rim cities.?For all those interested in the present-and future-global environment,?Postcolonial Spaces is an important exploration.

  • Thrown Rope

    Karton Kapak
    Although Peter Hutchinson has been working with land art since the 1960s, he has yet to receive his proper due. His work isn't found in galleries and he doesnt practice the kind of sensationalism that is typical of the art world. He is a refreshingly modest artist, and his delicate, fleeting work is extraordinarily beautiful, remarkably intelligent, and endlessly charming. It is our hope that Thrown Rope will place Hutchinson where he belongs: in the canon of modern art alongside Andy Goldsworthy and Robert Smithson. Hutchinson's works are ephemeral and evanescent, produced out in the open, where they are subject to the whims of nature. Much of it is the product of his "thrown rope" methodliterally throwing ropes over an expanse of land, then placing lime or planting flowers along the lines deter-mined by the ropes. The result is a snakelike garden or swerving lines of bleached land. Hutchinson has even thrown ropes underwater, planting flowers at the bottom of a lake or stringing oranges or onions beneath the water's surface. Such projects are just a slice of Hutchinson's many conceptual pieces. The photographs within Thrown Rope are all that exists to document Hutchinson's career. Reproduced here along with Hutchinson's own hand-written notes, they provide an inspirational look at one of the most underappreciated artists of our time.

  • Biopolitics and the Emergence of Modern Architecture

    Biopolitics and the Emergence of Modern Architecture

    Karton Kapak
    Biopolitics and the Emergence of Modern Architecture concerns the dissolution of the classical paradigm of architecture as imitative form in the context of the French Enlightenment, and analyzes the emergence of a new logic of architecture based on a biopolitical process of subject formation. Published shortly after the release of the first English translation of Foucault's The Birth of Biopolitics, this is the first volume that specifically relates the biopolitical concept to architecture.

  • Young Architects 11: Foresight

    Young Architects 11: Foresight

    Karton Kapak
    Foresight is the eleventh in an annual series of publications that features the best young practicing architects as selected by the Architectural League of New York in their annual Young Architects competition. This year's theme, "Foresight," refers to an ability to survey, research, and engage the present toward particular, desired outcomes in the future. Our lives are inundated by forecasts about the world climate, the economy, sociopolitical trends, the housing markets rise and fall, and all kinds of bubbles bursting. Everyone has become an expert in predicting the future, just as the very idea of a better future has, for the first time in recent memory, come into question. The competition winners—Bureau E.A.S.T., Ether Ship,, Fake Industries, Frida Escobedo Lopez, and Phu Hoang Office—present forward-thinking projects that imagine an effective role for architecture in the future.

  • The Architecture of Modern Italy, Volume I: The Challenge of Tradition 1750-1900

    The Architecture of Modern Italy, Volume I: The Challenge of Tradition 1750-1900

    Sert Kapak
    This groundbreaking and authoritative two-volume survey is the first truly comprehensive history of modern Italian architecture and urbanism to appear in any language. Told in lively prose, it recounts more than 250 years of experimentation, creativity, and turmoil that have shaped the landscape of contemporary Italy. Volume I: The Challenge of Tradition, 17501900, explores the dynamic balancing of forces demanded by a reverence for Italy's unparalleled architectural patrimony and a desire for new means of expression and technological innovation. From the neoclassical fantasies of Giovanni Battista Piranesi to the spectacular steeland-glass gallerias of Milan and Naples, it reveals an underappreciated history of richness and complexity.The Architecture of Modern Italy is exhaustively illustrated with rare period images, new photography, maps, drawings, and plans. With Colin Rowe's Italian Architecture of the 16th Century, it provides a nearly complete overview of the history of Italian architecture.

  • Suburban Discipline (Storefront Books)

    Suburban Discipline (Storefront Books)

    Karton Kapak
    Historically, suburbia has been defined in relation to the city. Today, however, the city is no longer the undisputed arbiter for civilization; suburbia has infiltrated urban culture worldwide, shaping both its aspirations and its fears. Beneath an advertised serenity, poetry and violence, romance and pornography, organic gardens and toxic wastes are all nestled into the naturalistic settings of the suburb. What are the rituals and customs of the contemporary suburb? Is it possible to describe suburban culture without relying on typical urban comparisons? How is suburban culture changing as a result of being plugged into a global market of expanding proportions?Suburban Discipline, the second book (after "Mortal City") in our series from StoreFront for Art and Architecture, answers these questions through a series of critical essays. Keller Easterling, a professor of architecture at Columbia University and co-author of "Seaside", contributes an essay on the Appalachian Trail. Hannia Gmez, architecture critic for El Nacional in Caracas, provides a study on the Hanging Suburbs of Caracas. Also included is a photo-essay on Rem Koolhaas's Lille project.
