"Architectural Temperance examines relations between Bourbon Spain and papal Rome (1700-1759) through the lens of cultural politics. With a focus on key Spanish architects sent to study in Rome by the Bourbon Kings, the book also discusses the establishment of a program of architectural education at the newly founded Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid. Victor Deupi explores why a powerful nation like Spain would temper its own building traditions with the more cosmopolitan trends associated with Rome; often at the expense of its own national and regional traditions. Through the inclusion of previously unpublished documents and images that shed light on the theoretical debates which shaped eighteenth-century architecture in Rome and Madrid, Architectural Temperance provides an insight into 18th century Spanish architecture in English"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Architectural Destruction in Contemporary Conflicts
  • Representing and Replicating Architectural Destruction in Ancient, Early Modern, and Modern Contexts
  • Iconoclasm and Architectural Destruction
  • Future Destruction : The Fate of Architecture in Post-Conflict Environments
  • From Destruction to Reconstruction.
"Bringing together specialists from a range of relevant fields and drawing on a range of global case studies, this book provides the first synthetic body of research on the complex, multifaceted subject of architectural destruction in the context of conflict. Situated in a strong framework, the book addresses several key questions:How has the targeted destruction of buildings and landscapes been used as a deliberate technique of war, conquest, or armed liberation in recent conflicts? How have individuals, cultures, and states responded to the deliberate and collateral destruction of architecture? How have individuals, institutions, and states represented architectural destruction, and to what ends? What are the relationships between the destruction of architecture and the destruction of art, particularly iconoclasm? Does armed conflict engender further processes of architectural destruction that persist in post-conflict environments? What are the relationships between architectural destruction and processes of restoration, recreation or replacement? Considering multiple conflicts, multiple time periods, and multiple locations, this collection provides an essential primer for this crucial topic. "-- Provided by publisher.
"Architecture and Armed Conflict is the first multi-authored scholarly book to address the theme of the politics of destruction from a comparative, interdisciplinary perspective. By bringing together specialists from a range of relevant fields and with knowledge of case studies across time and space, it provides the first synthetic body of research on the complex, multifaceted subject of architectural destruction in the context of conflict"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Introduction
  • Historical and intellectual background of the late Chosŏn period
  • Western influence on Korean painting
  • True-view landscape painting.
"Korean painters participated in two major cultural trends of the late Chosŏn period in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries: inquiry into things Korean and investigation of things Western. Departing from Chinese sources long considered authoritative, they developed the distinctly Korean mode known as "true-view" landscape painting for depicting the scenery of their own country. Rooted in the documentary painting of the early Chosŏn period and displaying special techniques developed to describe distinctive features of Korea's topography, true-view paintings portray the most exemplary and ideal landscapes of Korea, such as those of Mount Kumgang (Diamond Mountain). The same painters also drew on Western painting methods, which they learned from descriptions of Western paintings seen and recorded by Korean emissaries to Beijing as well as from actual paintings brought back. This knowledge inspired them to produce not only landscapes but also portraits, images of animals and other paintings based on firsthand observation of nature. Both trends, looking inward to Korea and outward to the West, represented Korean aspiration for something new - for "modernity." Deftly weaving these two strands together as the unifying theme of Searching for Modernity, Yi Song-mi expands on her pioneering work on true-view landscape painting to reveal even more of the depth and complexity of this mature and fully Korean form of artistic expression."--Publisher's website.

"Lights fascinate. From functionality to style, the design of lighting is an area of design that is in a constant state of flux, with technologies allowing designers to now create lighting that can now manipulate and play with form, establishing the discipline to hold a place very much at the forefront of interior design and architecture. The book maps trends in lighting design over the last decade, featuring over 100 designs from domestic, commercial and architectural settings. Including a vast array of designers and agencies from influential figures including Ross Lovegrove, Ingo Maurer, Philippe Stark, Ron Arad and Tom Dixon to lesser known but emerging dynamic designers, the book is the authoritative guide to contemporary lighting design. As well as showcasing the most dynamic and aesthetically bold work in the discipline, the book also provides a strong critical through-line, exploring lighting design from the perspectives of sustainability, technology, form and structure. With full colour imagery and insightful commentary this is the ultimate guide to the diverse world of contemporary lighting design"-- Provided by publisher.
