The constant in architecture's evolution is change. Adaptive Architecture explores structures, or environments that accommodate multiple functions at the same time, sequentially, or at periodically recurring events. It demonstrates how changing technological, economic, ecological and social conditions have altered the playing field for architecture from the design of single purpose structures to the design of interacting systems of synergistically interdependent, distributed buildings. Including contributors from the US, UK, Japan, Australia, Germany and South Africa, the essays are woven into a five-part framework which provides a broad and unique treatment of this important and timely issue.

Emerging from the challenge to reconstruct sonic and spatial experiences of the deep past, this multidisciplinary collection of ten essays explores the intersection of liturgy, acoustics, and art in the churches of Constantinople, Jerusalem, Rome and Armenia, and reflects on the role digital technology can play in re-creating aspects of the sensually rich performance of the divine word. Engaging the material fabric of the buildings in relationship to the liturgical ritual, the book studies the structure of the rite, revealing the important role chant plays in it, and confronts both the acoustics of the physical spaces and the hermeneutic system of reception of the religious services. By then drawing on audio software modelling tools in order to reproduce some of the visual and aural aspects of these multi-sensory public rituals, it inaugurates a synthetic approach to the study of the premodern sacred space, which bridges humanities with exact sciences. The result is a rich contribution to the growing discipline of sound studies and an innovative convergence of the medieval and the digital.

This book examines the importance of the animal in modern art theory, using classic texts of modern aesthetics and texts written by modern artists to explore the influence of the human-animal relationship on nineteenth- and twentieth-century artists and art theorists. The book is unique due to its focus on the concept of the animal, rather than on images of animals, and it aims towards a theoretical account of the connections between the notions of art and animality in the modern age. Roni Gren's book spans various disciplines, such as art theory, art history, animal studies, modernism, postmodernism, posthumanism, philosophy, and aesthetics.

In the course of its long and tumultuous history the sublime has alternated between spatial and temporal definitions, from its conceptualization in terms of the grandeur and infinity of Nature (spatial), to its postmodern redefinition as an 'event' (temporal), from its conceptualization in terms of our failure to 'cognitively map' the decentered global network of capital or the rhizomatic structure of the post-metropolis (spatial), to its neurophenomenological redefinition in terms of the new temporality of presence produced by network/real time (temporal). This volume explores the place of the sublime in contemporary culture and the aesthetic, cultural, and political values coded in it. It offers a map of the contemporary sublime in terms of the limits-cinematic, cognitive, neurophysiological, technological, or environmental-of representation.

Over the last forty years, renewed interest in the career of Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859-1937) has vaulted him into expanding scholarly discourse on American art. Consequently, he has emerged as the most studied and recognized representative of African American art during the nineteenth century. In fact, Tanner, in the spirit of political correctness and racial inclusiveness, has gained a prominent place in recent textbooks on mainstream American art and his painting, The Banjo Lesson (1893), has become an iconic symbol of black creativity. In addition, Tanner achieved national recognition when the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1991 and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2012 celebrated him with major retrospectives. The latter exhibition brought in a record number of viewers. While Tanner lived a relatively simple life where his faith and family dictated many of the choices he made daily, his emergence as a prominent black artist in the late nineteenth century often thrust him openly into coping with the social complexities inherent with America's great racial divide. In order to fully appreciate how he negotiated prevailing prejudices to find success, this book places him in the context of a uniquely talented black man experiencing the demands and rewards of nineteenth-century high art and culture. By careful examination on multiple levels previously not detailed, this book adds greatly to existing Tanner scholarship and provides readers with a more complete, richly deserved portrait of this preeminent American master.

How might we document, curate, collect, and exhibit performance? Histories of Performance Documentation traces the many ways in which museums have approached performance works from the 1960s onwards. Considering the unique challenges of documenting live events including hybrid and interactive arts, games, virtual and mixed reality performance, this collection investigates the burgeoning role of the performative in museum displays, and examines a number of interdisciplinary documentation practices which have influenced the field of performance documentation. Gabriella Giannachi and Jonah Westerman bring together interviews and essays by leading curators, conservators, artists and scholars from institutions including MoMA, Tate, SFMOMA and the Whitney. Developing from recent approaches which argue that discussions of performance should not focus purely on the live event, and that documentation should not be read solely as a process of retrospection, these chapters build a radical new framework for thinking about the relationship between performance and its documentation - and how documentation might shape ideas of what constitutes performance in the first place.

Some cities have long-treasured waterfront promenades, many cities have recently built ones, and others have plans to create them as opportunities arise. Beyond connecting people with urban water bodies, waterfront promenades offer many social and ecological benefits. They are places for social gathering, for physical activity, for relief from the stresses of urban life, and where the unique transition from water to land eco-systems can be nurtured and celebrated. The best are inclusive places, welcoming and accessible to diverse users. This book explores urban waterfront promenades worldwide. It presents 38 promenade case studies-as varied as Vancouver's extensive network that has been built over the last century, the classic promenades in Rio de Janeiro, the promenades in Stockholm's recently built Hammarby Sjostad eco-district, and the Ma On Shan promenade in the Hong Kong New Territories-analyzing their physical form, social use, the circumstances under which they were built, the public policies that brought them into being, and the threats from sea level rise and the responses that have been made. Based on wide research, Urban Waterfront Promenades examines the possibilities for these public spaces and offers design and planning approaches useful for professionals, community decision-makers, and scholars. Extensive plans, cross sections, and photographs permit visual comparison.

A fascinating insight into Britain's built heritage and the diverse housing styles of the twentieth and twenty-first century. This book showcases 100 houses - one from each year from 1914 - that represent the range of architectural styles throughout the years and show how housing has adapted to suit urban life. Each house is accompanied by stunning photography and texts written by leading architectural critics and design historians, including Gavin Stamp, Elain Harwood, Barnabas Calder, Ellis Woodman and Gillian Darley. From specially commissioned architect-designed houses for individuals and for families to housing built for increased workforces, each of the 100 houses brings a different design style or historical story. There are houses built as part of garden cities, semi-detached suburban houses, housing estates, eco-houses, almshouses, converted factories and affordable post-war homes. The architectural styles encompass mock Tudor, modernist, Arts & Crafts and brutalist and the featured architects include Giles Gilbert Scott, Walter Gropius, Edwin Lutyens, Powell and Moya and David Chipperfield. The book also contains essays that explore the social and political aspects of housing design in Britain over the last 100 years, looking at the impact the World Wars had on housing, exploring domestic technology and building materials and asking how the modern house came about. Whether exploring Grayson Perry's folly-like House for Essex, Patrick Gwynne's modernist glass villa in Surrey, Sarah Wigglesworth's Straw Bale House or Simon Conder's black rubber-clad fisherman's hut in Dungeness, this book gives a glimpse into the wonderful housing in Britain and is a must-have for all fans of design history and architecture.

A visual feast of 400 dazzling images, this is a comprehensive survey of the genre over the last century. The book also offers an overview of the development of fashion, as seen through the eyes of the greatest illustrators of the day. Early in the century, fashion illustration reflected new, liberating currents in art and culture, such as the exoticism of the Ballets Russes, while the postwar period saw inspiration from the great Parisian couturiers. After the dominance of the celebrity fashion photographer in the 60s, a new generation of illustrators emerged, embracing the medium of the computer, while many returned to more traditional techniques.

"L'exposition "21 rue La Boétie" retrace le parcours singulier et exceptionnel de Paul Rosenberg (1881-1959), qui fut l'un des plus grands marchands d'art de la première moitié du XXe siècle. Elle rassemble plus de soixante chefs-d'oeuvre de l'art moderne (Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, Marie Laurencin...), pour certains inédits en France et provenant de collections publiques de premier plan telles que le Centre Pompidou, le musée d'Orsay, le Musée Picasso à Paris, ou encore le Deutsches Historisches Museum à Berlin, mais aussi d'importantes collections particulières comme celle de David Nahmad. De nombreuses oeuvres sont directement liées au marchand, pour avoir transité par ses galeries, à Paris ou à New York, alors que d'autres renvoient au contexte historique et artistique de l'époque. Conçue par Tempora et produite par Culturespaces au musée Maillol à Paris, cette exposition bénéficie du soutien actif d'Anne Sinclair, petite-fille de Paul Rosenberg, auteur de l'ouvrage éponyme 21 rue La Boétie (paru aux éditions Grasset & Fasquelle en 2012)."--Page 4 of cover.

Rain machines; alarmed kosher pickle jars filled with gemstones; replica corn flakes boxes; 'disco decor'; time capsules; art bombs; birthday presents; perfume bottles and floating silver pillows that are clouds; paintings that are also films; museum interventions; collected and curated projects; expanded performance environments; holograms. This is a book about the vast array of sculptural work made by Andy Warhol between 1954 and 1987 - a period that begins long before the first Pop paintings and ends in the year of his death. In 3D Warhol, Thomas Morgan Evans argues that Warhol's engagement with sculpture, and traditional notions of sculpture, produced 'trespasses', his sculptural work bisected the expectations, allegiances and values within art historical, and ultimately social sites of investitute (or territories). This groundbreaking, original book brings to the forefront a major, but overlooked aspect of Warhol's oeuvre, providing an essential new perspective on the artist's legacy.
