  • 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.

"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.

""L'art de Willette consiste surtout en une alliance charmante de l'esprit et de la poésie, de la peinture et de la chanson, de l'allégorie et de la vie même. S'il y a beaucoup de gaieté et d'insouciance sur tous les visages de ses tableaux, l'on y découvre aussi de la mélancolie. Pierrots, Colombines, rêveurs, fillettes espiègles aux beaux seins, Ève montmartroise qui, pour sauter à la corde avez pris le serpent, et vous-même Willette vous tous qui souriez avec tant de douceur, vous êtes charmants / Et tristes comme l'amour même"."--P. [4] of cover.

  • Cubist Things
  • Towards a Constructive Ideal
  • The Lure of Geometry
  • Lyrical Constructivism: A Local Tradition
  • Time and the Viewer
  • Irregular Curves: Science and The Organic
  • Fabricators: The Supremacy of Technique
  • Constructivism Now.
"When Constructivism emerged shortly after the Russian Revolution, its central principles concerned structure and efficiency in the work of art and the nature and properties of materials. In a series of eight essays, Brandon Taylor examines the origins of these principles and their extraordinary consequences for the rest of modern art. Even before Constructivism, structure was a vital ingredient in Cubist art. After it, ideas about faktura or the "madeness" of an art object-and about its rational organization-became stock-in-trade for De Stijl in Holland and Art Concret in France and bore decisively on other currents such as Surrealism and abstract art. After 1945, artistic movements including Systems, Kinetic and Minimal Art were all touched by the long reach of Constructivist ideals. Recent art has proved no exception. Taylor shows that casual attitudes to materials, even the collapse of Constructivist ideals, have helped form the artistic tenor of our times"-- Provided by publisher.
