St. Martin's Press 247642 New York 2007 First Edition 0312361661 / 9780312361662 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Alan Lapidus' life has been a "Zelig"-like romp through most of the cultural and political highlights of the recent past. He has popped up as architect for or observer of many of our era's most iconic figures, including Donald Trump, various mafia big-shots, mayors, Aristotle and Jackie Onassis, Bob Guccione, pit bosses, real estate legends and spies. "Everything By Design" takes us behind the scenes in Las Vegas, Disney World, Havana, Atlantic City, Moscow, the Amazon rainforest, and New York. Along the way we learn why Mickey Mouse never seems to use the restroom, why the baccarat tables in casinos are always for away from the dice tables, and why the CIA wanted him to redesign Havana's main synagogue. "Everything By Design" is a keenly observed social and cultural history of modern America, by one of its key shapers. 308 pages. Illustrated with black and white photograph. Quantity Available: 1.

New Approaches to Houseing for the Second Half of Life, Andreas Huber
4 Andreas Huber New Approaches to Houseing for the Second Half of Life
Birkhauser 247399 Germany 2008 3764386355 / 9783764386351 Softcover Very Good Condition We are not only living longer than our grandparents - we are also working longer and remaining more active and enterprising than they did. Thus for many today the second half of life is marked by a broad and varied range of activities that call for freedom of action, whether one has a disability or other limitation or not. What types of housing will make it possible to shape this ever longer and more important phase of our lives in accord with our wishes and needs? In addition to the desire of most older people to remain in their homes, we are also seeing the emergence of new and novel communal types of housing, such as neighborhood and cohousing communities, shared apartments, integrated residential communities, assisted living, and group homes. Against this backdrop, noted authors consider the various aspects of the second phase of life. In addition, realized projects in Switzerland and Germany are presented and analyzed in terms of their practical feasibility. Andreas Huber has been studying the phenomenon of international retirement migration for a number of years. His primary research focuses are demography, dwelling in old age, quality development, and evaluation. He is the director of the CTI research project Neue Wohnmodelle fur die zweite Lebenshalfte (New Housing Models for the Second Half of Life) and the author of numerous books on the subject. 223 pages.

Spirit & Place: Healing Our Environment, Christopher Day
10 Christopher Day Spirit & Place: Healing Our Environment
Architectural Press 247783 Great Britain 2003 0750653590 / 9780750653596 Softcover Very Good Condition Built environment surrounds us for 90% of our lives but only now are we realising its influence on the environment, our health, and how we think, feel and behave both individually and socially. Spirit & Place shows how to work towards a sustainable environment through socially inclusive processes of placemaking, and how to create places that are nourishing psychologically and physically, to soul and spirit as well as body. This book's unique arguments identify important, but often unrecognised, principles and illustrate their applicability in a wide range of situations, price-ranges and climates. It shows how to reconcile the apparently incompatible demands of environmental, economic and social sustainability; how to moderate climate to make places of delight, and realign social pressures so places both support society and maximise economic viability. Thought provoking and easy to understand, Christopher Day uses everyday examples to relate his theories to practice and our experience. 253 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Castelli del Ducato di Parma e Piacenza, Daniela Guerrieri [Text]
12 Daniela Guerrieri [Text] Castelli del Ducato di Parma e Piacenza
NLF 232782 2006 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Large Book - between A4 and A3 Giancarlo Bertuzzi,Nicoletta Perazzoli, Renzo Marchionni [Photographs] This book is a collection of beautiful images from three skillfull photographers of the castles of Parma and Piancenza. "The Duchy of Parma and the Duchy of Piacenza were defined right from the Longobard era but the ruling dukes were always foreign. The two duchies were finally united under the single rod of order held by the Visconti family, Piacenza in 1335 and Parma in 1346, thus following the fate of first dictated by Milan, and then by the papacy. Castles therefore were both a dream and a failure. They bore witness to conflicts between local feudal lords hoping to affirm an impossible supremacy, playing with all the cards that ruthless and courageous men could put on the table: audacity, alliances, matrimony, relationships, hazardous adventures, quick and easy accumulation of wealth, no strategy was excluded. This volume presents each one {castle} with a brief description and rich images to illustrate how each castle has its own unique form, built with wisdom, elegance and taste, because apart from the strategic aspects which led to its creation and fortification, the symbolic value each castle had was linked to the feudal lord's family, the territory and its own particular traditions. Each heir felt he was under an obligation to modernise keeping these statements of elegance and taste, while still leaving the mark of his own era. " Italian and English text.

The Architect's Guide to Running A Practice, David Littlefield
13 David Littlefield The Architect's Guide to Running A Practice
Architectural Press / Elsevier 247810 Oxford 2005 0750660996 / 9780750660990 Softcover Very Good Condition This is your essential one stop shop for information on starting and running a practice. Case studies and advice from practitioners, big and small, run alongside outlines of all the key topics, to give you an insight into the problems and challenges others have faced when setting up a design business. Accessible and informative, this handbook is the ideal first point of reference when starting a practice. Architects have many different reasons for setting up in practice; equally, there are many ways of running your own business. This handbook helps you consider whether or not you should set up on your own, examining issues such as financing, office space, recruitment, IT and workingo ut a business plan. Some architects want to stay small, while others have ambitions to grow into large businesses. Some grow big accidentally. And then there are those who pick and choose their work carefully, and even turn down undesirable contracts, while others will grab at everything possible. This book woudl explore these different models and illustrate how different kinds of practice develop into successful businesses. Importantly, the book will stress that these issues are crucial - you may be the best designer in the world, but unless your business is well managed you will fail. On the other hand, some successful architects spend a lot of time looking for new work and attending to management issues, rarely finding the time for design work. This book would illustrate how architects have struck a balance between these two extremes. 121 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Airspaces, David Pascoe
14 David Pascoe Airspaces
Reaktion Books 247851 London 2001 1861890907 / 9781861890900 Softcover Near Fine Condition As mass air transport shrinks the world and requires airport complexes large enough to be regarded as self-contained cities, this book argues that airspace - that transitional area stretching from terminal to terminal, across time zones or between the check-in desk and the baggage carousel - must be regarded as a discrete destination on any map of our age. At the hub of this exclusive enclave, which rises from the runway to an altitude of several thousand feet and which calmly accommodates the dangers of take-off and landing procedures, lies the airport - the concrete manifestation of airspace. The airport is a locale of anxiety and chance where, in order to expedite air traffic, authority is absolute, time is relative and liberties are always taken. David Pascoe's wide-ranging book blends personal observation with detailed discussions of social history, air accidents, landscape, architecture, politics, aesthetics, literature and film to provide a striking account of the airport as a unique space and singular form of modernity, a place fundamental to any accurate sense of what we are now, and where we are going. 303 pages.

The Environmental Imagination: Technics and Poetics of the Architectural Environment, Dean Hawkes
15 Dean Hawkes The Environmental Imagination: Technics and Poetics of the Architectural Environment
Routledge 247401 London 2008 0415360870 / 9780415360876 Softcover Very Good Condition This title, from a well-regarded and established expert, explores the changing relationship between the poetic intentions and technical means of environmental design in architecture. Working thematically and chronologically from the eighteenth century to the present day, these essays reach beyond the narrow conventional view of the purely technical to encompass the poetics of architecture, redefining the historiography of environmental design. Through an assessment of the works of several leading figures throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Hawkes deftly shows the growth of environmental awareness and adds a consideration of the qualitative dimension of the environment to the existing, primarily technological, narratives. Essays on earlier buildings highlight the response of pioneering architects to the 'new' technologies of mechanical services and their influence on the form of buildings, while the late twentieth-century design is explored in particular depth to illustrate individual strands of the environmental diversity of modern practice. 232 pages.

Hazardous Materials Characterization: Evaluation Methods, Procedures and Considerations, Donald A. Shafer
17 Donald A. Shafer Hazardous Materials Characterization: Evaluation Methods, Procedures and Considerations
Wiley-Interscience 247403 USA 2006 0471462578 / 9780471462576 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Near Fine Condition This title provides detailed, up-to-date coverage of hazardous materials and situations. Lack of awareness about hazardous materials poses a major problem, causing many needless injuries and losses of property. Incomplete awareness presents just as big a problem; often people who have contact with such materials know just enough to feel safe while actually putting themselves and others in great danger. Though regulatory agencies have provided written standards, rarely do these on their own offer the commonsense advice needed to properly evaluate and handle hazardous materials. "Hazardous Materials Characterization: Evaluation Methods, Procedures, and Considerations" provides detailed coverage of hazardous materials and situations. Plain language and a common- sense approach make this an accessible resource for use by all workers who handle and deal with these materials.Written according to the latest regulations and best practices, this guide groups related materials together for quick and easy access (corrosive, ignitable, radioactive, etc.). It also details methods and procedures for evaluating the properties and strengths of questionable materials, as well as what reactive substances and situations to look out for when working with these materials. Other topics covered in this guide include: regulatory review; sampling and monitoring equipment, applications, and procedures; human health hazards; biological hazards; radiation hazards; evaluating chemical and biological terrorist threats; environmental remediation methods; and, references and resources. Packed with the most up-to-date information on hazardous materials and written to maximize accessibility, "Hazardous Materials Characterization" is a vital reference for all those whose work involves hazardous materials. 350 pages.

Robert Adam, Doreen Yarwood
18 Doreen Yarwood Robert Adam
Charles Scribner's Sons 247511 New York 1970 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Robert Adam is one of the most honoured names in the history of western architecture. His buildings carry his 'signature' of rightness, nobility of proportion and taste as unmistakably as a chair by Sheraton. There have been earlier books about the architect's work but Adam the man has only been revealed in a thorough way since his extensive correspondence and documents were made available after 1950. Here the two aspects of the man and his work are for the first time integrated fully in one volume. We meet a determined young Scot setting forth from his impoverished native land--with many of his fellow countrymen--to make his name in the world in the aftermath of Culloden. He is already capable of dedicated work and an unswerving attention to every detail of it. He has a driving ambition, softened by charm and generosity, and an enjoyment of the social whirl first apparent during his years in Italy when he was studying the craft which was to transform the face of Britain. Mrs. Yarwood recounts these formative years in fascinating detail and then describes his rapid rise to success and fame after his return to London; a success marked by bitter rivalries and jealousies but also sweetened by the generous support of such friends as David Garrick, Adam Smith, David Hume, and Sir Joshua Reynolds. Previous biographers have paid tribute to the versatility of Adam. He was at once, even more than his contemporaries, architect, interior decorator, designer of furniture and furnishings. His 'Adelphi' brought to London a first taste of environmental planning by streets and squares. Large schemes and individual buildings are vulnerable to change and destruction. An interesting and useful feature of this book is its accurate account of the current state of all Adam's work. With her encyclopaedic knowledge of architectural history and her insight into character, Doreen Yarwood is peculiarly suited to a biography of Adam the artist and the man. Her text is splendidly supported by an outstanding collection of over forty photographs, and by drawings by the author, an illustrated glossary and an appendix of Adam's surviving work. 221 pages.
