    Title: Complete Zaha Hadid
    Author: BETSKY AARON

    Zaha Hadid (1950- 2016) was one of the most innovative and celebrated architects of our time. This comprehensive survey of over two hundred projects--from her earliest experimentations to product design, from speculative follies to large- scale built works--is a testament to the depth, range, and inventiveness of her vision.

    This compact and comprehensive edition has been thoroughly expanded and brought up to date with the latest completed buildings and Hadid's final projects. Prepared in collaboration with the architect's office, the book contains a dazzling array of imagery, including large- scale paintings, sculpture- like models, multi-perspective drawings, and dynamic computer renderings.

    Organized chronologically over Hadid's career, this volume reveals her earliest inspirations and also includes the last projects she worked on, such as the Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, the Dominion Office Building in Moscow, and the Port House in Antwerp. Critic and museum director Aaron Betsky's introduction examines Hadid's entire career, both in the context of architectural history and as a manifestation of the current and future state of architecture.

    Title: Contemporary Architecture In China
    Author: NING QIAN

    China's architecture can be seen as a mirror of the country's development as a whole. During China's reform and opening up in the past 30 years, the country and its architecture have undergone great changes, developing at an overwhelming speed. In the past ten years, in particular, as China has strenghtened its global ties, it has also experienced increasingly close cooperation between Chinese and foreign architects. This communication and exchange of ideas has resulted in an impressive number of internationally-recognized design projects. To illustrate the ingenuity and scope of architecture in China today, this book presents 30 notable structures designed and built in China since 1999. This should give readers not only insight into China's modern architectural design but also a broader view of the country's dynamic development over the past decade. Book jacket.

    Title: Contemporary House

    There is no one way to design a modern urban house. Demand for space in cities the world over is higher than ever and new buildings must meet stringent energy saving requirements and negotiate a myriad planning regulations. But the best new urban architecture suggests invention and innovation are as critical as ever. The Contemporary House brings together seventy solutions, drawn from cities around the globe to explore the many ways in which architecture can enhance the experience of living in the city.

    Organized geographically, The Contemporary House offers a fascinating insight into the sheer variety of contemporary approaches to urban design, from reinventions of longstanding vernacular forms like terraces and townhouses, through to the fastchanging suburbs and inner cities of modern Japan, where the short lifespan of family houses provides architects with a template for aesthetic and technical experimentation. The book also provides an insight into the conditions that shape the architecture of some of the world's major cities, through recent history, signature styles, and current conditions on the ground. The Contemporary House is an essential guide to design in the modern city.

    Title: Dark Nostalgia Faultlessly Stylish Interiors for Business Pleasure & Leisure
    Author: HAGBERG EVA

    As the late 20th-century fascination with rounded shapes, organic influences and plastics fades, interior designers are increasingly drawn to dark colours, polished woods, velvets, furs, leather, dark metals and brick materials with a nostalgic quality that were used liberally in centuries gone by. Efforts to shape a more authentic, less austere present by creating an idealized version of the past have begun to appear in commercial and residential design domestically and abroad. Dark Nostalgia presents 25 projects that exemplify the smooth incorporation of evocative historic details into current interiors. They all demonstrate the many successful ways this trend towards a dark nostalgia has been incorporated into recent designs.

    Title: Design Solutions for Urban Densification

    The world's metropolises are home to steadily growing populations. Densification measures are one solution to the problems of urbanization, creating inner-city living space where there was none before. The smallest of gaps between buildings is utilized, perimeter block developments are completed, courtyards filled in, houses heightened and smaller structures replaced with larger ones. This process of densification preserves existing and naturally developed quarters and infrastructure, while protecting against urban sprawl and the development of soulless quarters full of new builds. In some cases, a self-contained element that clearly sets itself apart from the existing built environment is most suitable; in others, the best solution is the re-interpretation and development of the existing context. The architectural approach to each project is as unique as its context.

    Title: Detroit: the Dream Is Now

    Detroit: The Dream Is Now is a visual essay on the rebuilding and resurgence of the city of Detroit by photographer Michel Arnaud, co-author of Design Brooklyn. In recent years, much of the focus on Detroit has been on the negative stories and images of shuttered, empty buildings--the emblems of Detroit's financial and physical decline. In contrast, Arnaud aims his lens at the emergent creative enterprises and new developments taking hold in the still-vibrant city. The book explores Detroit's rich industrial and artistic past while giving voice to the dynamic communities that will make up its future. The first section provides a visual tour of the city's architecture and neighborhoods, while the remaining chapters focus on the developing design, art, and food scenes through interviews and portraits of the city's entrepreneurs, artists, and makers. Detroit is the story of an American city in flux, documented in Arnaud's thought-provoking photographs.

The focus of this book is the evolution of the elements used by architects of every age throughout the history of architecture. Doors, windows, ceilings, floors, stairs, balconies, and other basic elements of architecture--often overlooked but universally familiar--are studied, analyzed, and cataloged by means of an endless variety of visual references, from ancient times to modern developments. By looking at the evolution of architectural elements that are common to all cultures, this exploration avoids the classical Eurocentrism that often still characterizes architectural discourse. National identity has seemingly been sacrificed to modernity. Nevertheless, unique national features and mentalities continue to exist and flourish just as international collaboration and exchange intensifies.

    The average Australian household spends over $2,000 a year on gas and electricity bills. Now, not only can you reduce those bills, but you can even wipe them out, while making your home more comfortable. Paying for energy is the largest running cost that most home-owners are burdened with. And that's no surprise -- we use energy to heat our water, refrigerate our food and drink, run our heaters and air conditioners, light out homes at night, cook our meals, run our TV's, and charge our computers. There are simple, practical ways to reduce our demand for energy and to change where we get it from. There is already a quiet revolution under way as renewable energy and energy efficiency transform the way we generate and use electricity and gas. Over 1.4 million households in Australia now have rooftop solar -- and, as a result, the costs of solar energy have plummeted, making it more accessible for the average home-owner. Yet there is much more that can be done to reduce our reliance on the electricity grid, and some significant improvements that can be made with relatively little effort. The Energy-Freedom Home explains nine steps that can be taken -- in any order -- to become more energy efficient: replace old lights with LEDs stop draughts improve insulation upgrade windows use energy-efficient appliances install reverse-cycle systems use solar or heat-pump systems to heat your water monitor and control your energy use switch to solar. Containing detailed, easy-to-follow descriptions of practical problems and solutions, plus over 120 colour photographs and diagrams, The Energy-Freedom Home is the perfect guide to help home-owners liberate themselves from costly and non-renewable sources of energy.

Reinier de Graaf draws on his own tragicomic experiences to present a candid account of what it is really like to work as an architect.

    Title: Frank Lloyd Wright

    Wright on: The star pieces of Americas greatest architect A building by Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is at once unmistakably individual, and evocative of an entire era. Notable for their exceptional understanding of an organic environment, as well as for their use of steel and glass to revolutionize the interface of indoor and outdoor, Wright's designs helped announce the age of modernity, as much as they secured his own name in the annals of architectural genius.

    This meticulous compilation from TASCHEN's previous three-volume monograph assembles the most important works from Wright's extensive, paradigm-shifting oeuvre into one authoritative and accessibly priced overview of America's most famous architect. Based on unlimited access to the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives in Taliesin, Arizona, the collection spans the length and breadth of Wright's projects, both realized and unrealized, from his early Prairie Houses, through the Usonian concept home, epitomized by Fallingwater, the Tokyo years, his progressive "living architecture" buildings, right through to later schemes like the Guggenheim Museum, New York, and fantastic visions for a better tomorrow in the "living city."

    Author Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, who served as Wright's apprentice during the 1950s, discusses recent research on Wright and gives his own insights on these game-changing buildings. Text in English, French, and German
