2G n°56 Ábalos+Sentkiewicz
29,50 €

Since its foundation in 2006, the work done by Abalos+Sentkiewicz, one of the two offices into which the former Abalos&Herreros studio split, has stood out on the Spanish and international architecture scene for its original synthesis of technical rigour, formal richness and its integrating of architecture, landscape and environment.

A process revealed
33 €

This volume details the design and construction process behind the Murray Grove, an extraordinary nine-storey residential development in central London.
The tallest building of its kind to be made entirely of timber, the structure will have a profound effect on the way we build in the future. Constructed on time and under budget, the building has pushed forward the boundaries of wood use in contemporary construction.

The book shows how London-based architectural firm Waugh Thistleton worked closely with the engineer and manufacturers throughout the design and assembly to enhance the building's performance and make the structure possible.
Detailed technical information, diagrams and descriptions are included here, along with a full description of the process by Wallpaper magazine Design and Arts Editor Henrietta Thompson.

Best Highrises 2016/17 The International Highrise Award 2016
34 €

L'International Highrise Award est décerné tous les deux ans à un bâtiment exceptionnel qui affiche une esthétique particulière, un design pionnier, une technologie innovante et une rentabilité. La publication présente le lauréat, ainsi que les 30 projets nominés de 14 pays, parmi lesquels Zaha Hadid, Lord Norman Foster ou Richard Meier, avec des photos et des plans. Avec cela, il documente les tendances actuelles et significatives dans l'architecture de gratte-ciel dans le monde entier.

In times of growing metropolises and ever denser urban structures, the high-rise typology is more in demand and more necessary than ever. Building upwards is inevitable. For a long time, highrises have housed not only offices and residential units, instead their innovative concepts also combine other usages such as train stations, shopping malls, or parks. Aspects such as sustainability, energy, and cost efficiency are of increasing importance, as well as sensitive integration into the urban context.

The International Highrise Award is bestowed every two years to an outstanding building that displays a special esthetic, pioneering design, innovative technology and profitability. The publication presents the award winner, as well as all 30 nominated projects from 14 countries, among others by Zaha Hadid, Lord Norman Foster or Richard Meier, with photos and plans. With this it documents current and significant trends in worldwide high-rise architecture.

Black greens
25 €

Photographer Judith Jockel took pictures of all the rest areas at the exit and entry ramps and junctions on the A10 motorway, the ring road around Amsterdam.
In doing so, Judith Jockel was inspired by the medieval version of the Hortus Conclusus. Generally speaking, the vegetation along these rest areas does not seem to have been individually designed.
In any case, these places all convey the subordinate role they play. She noticed that the rest areas along the motorways around Amsterdam are well cared for.
Trees grow in tidy rows and the ponds are surrounded by bushes and other vegetation along the junctions with the A4, A8 and A9. Meticulously created non-places that transform into wild and abandoned spots during the summer months.

Breakthroughs: Avant-garde Artists in Europe and America, 1950-1990
55 €

Inspired by Abstract Expressionism, avant-garde art has emerged in the second half of the 20th century manifested in such unorthodox artforms as Pop Art, Minimalism, and Conceptualism. The Wexner Center in Columbus, Ohio, a showplace for the contemporary arts, has marked its first year with this hefty, amply illustrated anthology. Chronologically divided into three eras that correspond to three Wexner Center exhibitions, the 16 scholarly essays in the first two sections--written by notable art critics and historians involved in the movement--examine such issues as the synthesis of the arts, the cultural shift from Europe to America, and influences of popular culture in relation to each decade's sociopolitical issues. The third section contains several interviews with artists discussing their creative processes. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.

The Wexner Center's inaugural publication, Breakthroughs is an extraordinary survey of avant-garde art. This substantial, thoroughly illustrated volume details the activities of avant-garde artists, musicians, performing artists, and film and video makers-from Laurie Anderson, Joseph Beuys, and John Cage to Yvonne Rainer, Frank Stella, and Andy Warhol.

C(h)améléon
45 €

Depuis toujours l'homme observe les capacités d'adaptation de la nature et s'en inspire pour imaginer des technologies sophistiquées qui améliorent et embellissent notre quotidien.
Tout comme le caméléon qui change rapidement de couleur en modifiant ses cellules pigmentaires, de nouvelles générations de matériaux techniques sont capables d'être actives et réactives. Ils sont thermo-chromes, thermo-régulants, à transition de phase... et savent ainsi détecter et analyser des variations du milieu et se modifier en conséquence.
Les applications de ces matériaux du futur dans l'aménagement intérieur et dans les meubles laissent présager des améliorations fonctionnelles difficilement envisageables auparavant.
Avec ce nouvel ouvrage, l'Innovathèque de FCBA présente une sélection de 70 matières et procédés ou l'effet caméléon a été mis à profit pour rendre les matériaux intelligents et communicants.

Sommaire :

Les matériaux qui changent sous la pression et la manipulation
Les matériaux qui changent sous l'influence de l'eau
Les matériaux à effets optiques
Les matériaux qui changent à la lumière
Les matériaux qui changent sous l'influence de l'électricité
Les matériaux qui changent sous l'influence de la température

Chroma, Design, Architecture & Art in color
28 €

Designers and architects have to make decisions regarding color every day. But how does one find the necessary inspiration ? The appropriate color ? How do other designers and artists deal with the issue ?

With ''Chroma,'' the Greek word for color, as its title, this illustrated book provides answers to these questions and makes it clear that color is much more than mere decoration - it is one of the central problems of creative work.

Colour based on nature Irma Boom
66,15 €

Colour Based on Nature takes the concept of Irma Booms previous work further afield, highlighting UNESCO World Heritage sites across the globe and on every continent. This time, the colour diagrams are derived from 80 natural locations designated by the UNESCO list. It is an exercise in describing without words, using instead colours to evoke and celebrate the essence of a place. Detailed information about the World Heritage properties, their selection criteria, how many are inscribed per nation and in what regions such sites are most endangered makes this an important tribute to the reasons such places exist.

Coup de dés
20,10 €

The Fundació Mies van der Rohe organises a series of debates and lectures entitled Coup de Dés that provide an opportunity to discuss some of the most significant architecture being produced today, with the objective of offering a wide panorama of current architectural practice. The debates are generated by the presentation of various projects. Each presentation is followed by a dialogue between the architect and a critic who proposes an interpretation of the project and raises related questions.
The Coup de Dés forms part of the GAUDI project sponsored by the Culture 2000 programme of the European Union.

Daniel Libeskind: Inspiration and Process in Architecture
24 €

Influenced by a deep commitment to music, philosophy, and literature, the world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind chooses drawing to put his ideas and thoughts into practice, stating that architectural drawing is in itself a creative work.
Drawings which constitute architectural explorations from Micromegas to Chamber Works and Sonnets in Babylon are presented in this book along with those on real architecture, documenting the creative process of prestigious projects such as the Jewish Museum in Berlin and The World Trade Center redevelopment in New York.

Dash From Dwelling To Dwelling - Radical Housing Transformation
34,45 €

Following the large-scale production of new buildings in the second half of the twentieth century and the quietude of the economic crisis, a new practice is emerging. Finding ways to reuse the existing building stock plays an important part in that practice. Towards a more sustainable use of resources and social capital, this focus on the transformation of the existing housing stock is a promising assignment for architects and developments. In the Netherlands, all eyes are on the postwar housing that, built in the reconstruction period, is due for servicing on technical grounds alone.

Design of the Fifties in Croatia
61,20 €

This book presents a systematic and integrated survey of he design of the fifties in Croatia in a cross section of parallel tendencies in different creative expressions, from product design to applied art.
The focus of the analysis is on the distinctiveness of the phenomenon of Croatian design production in the fifties, and on the interpretation of the key achievements and essential phenomena founded on a contemporary manner of seeing this episode, an integral segment of the European context from the perspective of a historical shift.

Design of the fifties in Croatia is evaluated and contextualised in a cultural framework with respect to the characteristic topics, problems and theses, in order to draw attention to the continuity of tradition and the topicality of Modernism, as well as the contribution of fifties design to the reinterpretation of the avant-garde, including the historical treatment of some design oeuvres, theorists and critics whose work set its stamp on the fifties in Croatia.

The theoretical framework consists of manifestoes and programmes, the relation between design and ideology, the impact of the psychology of form, existential philosophies, science and the reciprocal impacts of given media.

The book is based on lengthy original research and most of the information and illustrations are published for the first time.


Separate units consist of documentation about the Applied Arts Academy and the complete set of polemics about the Ritz Bar.

Eileen Gray and the Design of Sapphic Modernity
124 €

The first book-length feminist analysis of Eileen Gray's work, Eileen Gray and the Design of Sapphic Modernity: Staying In argues that Gray's unusual architecture and design - as well as its history of abuse and neglect - emerged from her involvement with cultures of sapphic modernism. Bringing together a range of theoretical and historical sources, from architecture and design, communication and media, to gender and sexuality studies, Jasmine Rault shows that Gray shared with many of her female contemporaries a commitment to designing spaces for sexually dissident modernity. This volume examines Gray's early lacquer work and Romaine Brooks' earliest nude paintings; Gray's first built house, E.1027, in relation to Radclyffe Hall and her novel The Well of Loneliness; and Gray's private house, Tempe a Pailla, with Djuna Barnes' Nightwood. While both female sexual dissidence and modernist architecture were reduced to rigid identities through mass media, women such as Gray, Brooks, Hall and Barnes resisted the clarity of such identities with opaque, non-communicative aesthetics. Rault demonstrates that by defying the modern imperative to publicity, clarity and identity, Gray helped design a sapphic modernity that cultivated the dynamism of uncertain bodies and unfixed pleasures, which depended on staying in rather than coming out.

Emmanuel Régent
10 €

Comment traiter de l'architecture dans une exposition sans forcément mettre en scène la photographie du bâtiment, sa maquette ou le plan qui l'accompagne ? C'est à cette question que répond l'invitation faite à Emmanuel Régent de porter son regard sur un choix d'édifices contemporains sur la Côte d'Azur à l'occasion de la publication éditée par le Conseil général des Alpes-Maritimes et Les presses du réel.

L'artiste répond par la réalisation d'une grande fresque murale d'une quinzaine de mètres de longueur, composée d'une vingtaine de supports en bois, découpés selon la silhouette de leurs plans-masses et agencés comme un Tetris® horizontal à grande échelle. Le tout forme une sorte de cartographie inédite du territoire. L'ensemble est elliptique, suggère plutôt qu'il n'informe, laissant surtout apparaître le regard d'un artiste sur des constructions qui échappent bien souvent à notre attention.

En Blanco 11: Arquitectura sacra
19 €

En el siglo XX -más de ciencias que de letras- se constata que aún no tenemos todas las respuestas y que, quizás, por ello, se sigue construyendo arquitectura religiosa, de aquí este recorrido sintético por su arquitectura sacra. Este se realiza siguiendo un triple nivel de análisis de estos lugares siempre simbólicos.
Uno: relativo al espacio de la arquitectura que renueva el imaginario mediante sus elementos esenciales.
Dos: relativo a la capacidad de la luz y la imagen para transformar la liturgia en espectáculo de masas.
Tres: relativo a la dimensión táctil que muestra el paso del tiempo. Porque ¿cuál es la arquitectura de lo trascendente? Quizás la que vuelve a los elementos: tierra (materia), aire (espacio), agua (tiempo) y fuego (luz), permitiendo al hombre mirar a su interior. (Andrés Martínez Medina)

En Blanco 12 : Arquitectura colombiana
21 €

Continuamos con este número la serie de monografías dedicadas a la producción arquitectónica en hormigón visto en diversos países. Seguramente, como en cualquier selección, son tantos los olvidados como los incluidos. Hemos tratado a pesar de ello de que existiese un buen balance, tanto generacional entre los arquitectos presentes, como tipológico y escalar en las obras que los representan.

Arquitectónicamente, y desde un punto de vista de la formación académica, Colombia es un país joven... no han transcurrido aún ni cien años desde que se fundara la primera Facultad de Arquitectura en Bogotá, en 1936. No obstante esto no es óbice para que, a lo largo de estos años, Colombia haya demostrado ser un país inmensamente rico, tanto desde el punto de vista de la calidad de su producción arquitectónica, como desde la diversidad y profusión de la misma.
Se recogen aquí algunos trabajos de arquitectos nacidos alrededor de 1925, como son Germán Samper (Esguerra, Sáenz, Urdaneta y Samper) y Rogelio Salmona. El tiempo es circular y en el mismo número tenemos la oportunidad de apreciar el trabajo realizado por arquitectos hijos de algunos grandes representantes de esta segunda generación, como son Daniel Bermúdez, Eduardo Samper, Rafael Esguerra y Lorenzo Castro, pudiendo constatar a la vez lógicas evoluciones, pero también algunas permanencias, basadas siempre en un saber hacer extremadamente sólido.

A la par que el trabajo de estos últimos, aparece reflejada la producción de otros arquitectos pertenecientes a las generaciones más recientes, en las cuales se han gestado también profesionales de inmensa valía, en los que quizás se revelan influencias de un contexto más ''global''.
