"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 Through the inclusion of previously unpublished documents and images that shed light on the theoretical debates which shaped eighteenth-century architecture in Rome and Madrid, Architectural Temperance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.

  • 1. Introduction: After the Ethnographic Turn
  • 2. Art as Anthropology
  • 3. Traps and Devices
  • 4. Aesthetics and Politics
  • 5. Participation and the Gift
  • 6. Work and Life
  • 7. Fields and Labs
  • 8. Ethnography and Utopia.
"In recent decades, the dialogue between art and anthropology has been both intense and controversial. Art, Anthropology and the Gift provides a much-needed and comprehensive overview of this dialogue, whilst also exploring the reciprocal nature of the two subjects through practice, theory and politics. Fully engaging with anthropology and art theory, this book innovatively argues that art and anthropology don't just share methodologies, but also deeper intellectual, theoretical and even political concerns, inviting scholars and students alike to look at this contentious relationship in a more critical light. One of the central arguments of the book is that the problem of the 'gift' has been central to both anthropological and artistic practice. This very idea connects the different chapters on topics including aesthetics, politics, participation and fieldwork"-- Provided by publisher.

  • La Nouvelle Athènes / Thierry Cazaux -- De la maison au musée / Geneviève Lacambre -- Des oeuvres pour le musée / Geneviève Lacambre -- Henri Rupp (1837-1918). La mise en oeuvre des volontés de Gustave Moreau / Aurélie Peylhard -- Le rez-de-chaussée du musée Gustave Moreau. 2015, retour aux origines / Marie-Cécile Forest -- Gustave Moreau et le dessin. Le journal d'une vie / Marie-Cécile Forest.
"Le musée Gustave Moreau est un cas exemplaire de maison d'artiste transformée en musée par le peintre lui-même. Ce lieu, vanté par Marcel Proust dès avant son ouverture, a conservé son aménagement et son accrochage d'origine. À la fin de sa vie, Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) fait construire son musée tout en conservant l'appartement de ses parents au premier étage. Dans les grands ateliers des deuxième et troisième étages, il expose ses plus grands formats. Son légataire universel, Henri Rupp (1837-1918), poursuit l'aménagement du musée et préside à celui du rez-de-chaussée. L'année 2015 fera date dans l'histoire du musée Gustave Moreau, avec la réouverture du rez-de-chaussée dans son état originel et la création de réserves et d'un cabinet d'art graphique laissant intact ce lieu historique."--P. [4] of cover.

  • What is design research? The nature and process of design research ; the purpose of design research ; research approaches
  • How do we embark on design research? Formulating research questions ; conducting a literature search and review ; developing a research plan
  • How do we conduct design research? Asking questions ; data collection methods ; analysing information ; ethical issues
  • How do we communicate design research? Writing techniques ; writing for your audience ; publicising your research
  • Examples of design research? How we embark on design research ; how we conduct design research ; how we communicate design research.
"The Routledge Companion to Design Research offers a comprehensive examination of design research, celebrating the plurality of design research and the wide range of conceptual, methodological, technological and theoretical approaches evident in contemporary design research. This volume comprises 39 original and high quality design research chapters from contributors all over the world, with contributions from the vast array of disciplines in and around the modern design praxis, including areas such as industrial and product design, visual communication, interaction design, fashion design, hacktivism, and architecture. The Companion is divided into five distinct sections with chapters that examine the nature and process of design research, the purpose of design research, and how one might embark on design research. They also explore how leading design researchers conduct their design research through formulating and asking questions in novel ways, and the creative methods and tools they use to collect and analyse data. The Companion also includes a number of case studies that illustrate how one might best communicate and disseminate design research through contributions that offer techniques for writing and publicising your research. The Routledge Companion to Design Research will have wide appeal to researchers and educators in design and design-related disciplines such as engineering, business, marketing, computing, and will make an invaluable contribution to state-of-the-art design research at postgraduate, doctoral, and post-doctoral levels and teaching across a wide range of different disciplines"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Machine generated contents note: 1. The making of a royal city: Paris and the architecture of Philip Augustus; 2. The Sainte-Chapelle: Parisian Rayonnant and the new royal architecture; 3. The architecture of sacral kingship; 4. Private, public, and the promotion of the cult of kings; 5. Louis' later patronage in Paris; Conclusion; Appendices.
"This book offers a novel perspective on one of the most important monuments of French Gothic architecture, the Sainte-Chapelle, constructed in Paris by King Louis IX of France between 1239 and 1248 especially to hold and to celebrate Christ's Crown of Thorns. Meredith Cohen argues that the chapel's architecture, decoration, and use conveyed the notion of sacral kingship to its audience in Paris and in greater Europe, thereby implicitly elevating the French king to the level of suzerain, and establishing an early visual precedent for the political theories of royal sovereignty and French absolutism. By setting the chapel within its broader urban and royal contexts, this book offers new insight into royal representation and the rise of Paris as a political and cultural capital in the thirteenth century"-- Provided by publisher.
