Architecture ARCHITECTURE TOMORROW Between Futurism and Avant-garde Terrail Text by Francis Rambert 280pp. 250 colour & b/w illustrations Paperback - 25 x 29 cm What will tomorrow’s city be made of?

Whether destined for work, play, residence or business, today’s sites incorporate the global concept of “sustainable development”, opening up more and more. Architecture Tomorrow offers an overview of trends and options for the future via themes including sculpting space, “dynamic itineraries”, “inventing materials”, “modeling the site”, “the poetics of planting” and “creating hybrids”. Its coverage of projects and buildings worldwide draws on the cutting edge agencies such as Massimiliano Fuksas, Shigeru Ban, Herzog & De Meuron and FOA-and other creators who well deserve the title of pioneers English text ISBN 2879392861 £ 30.00 3

Architecture CARLO BAUMSCHLAGER / DIETMAR EBERLE Hafengebäude Rohner, Fussach Hatje Cantz Edited by Kunsthaus Bregenz, archiv kunst architektur, Eckhard Schneider, Texts by Andres Lepik &, Armin Thurnherr c. 76 pp., ca. 40 illus. Paperback – 16.4 x 22 cm The Rohner harbor building in Fussach (1999/2000) designed by B&E Baumschlager-Eberle is a fascinating steel, glass, and concrete configuration that appears to float in the air. Only a slim “foot” connects the eight-meter-long, container-shaped concrete shell of the precisely designed office building with the ground below. The interior of the concrete shell is lined with larchwood paneling. This inner tension is interrupted at the two ends of the building, which open toward Lake Constance and the inland countryside. Embedded in the harbor landscape, the “flying space capsule” is characterized by a light, open structure, clear lines, and uncompromising simplicity. The first volume in the popular, newly designed “archiv kunst architectur” series, the book features photographs by Eduard Hueber as well as plans and drawings by the Baumschlager-Eberle team. English & German text ISBN 3775715185 £ 13.00 JOSEF HOFER / JURG WEBER Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz Hatje Cantz Edited for the Kunsthaus Bregenz, Archiv Kunst Architectur by Elderbert Texts by Benedikt Loderer & Jurg Weber 104pp. 30 colour & 10 b/w illustrations Hardback. 21 x 28 cm The Lentos KunstMuseum in Linz by Weber and Hofer is a striking example of volumetric clarity and an ideal spatial concept. Measuring 130 metres, the oscillating three-story glass cube fits in perfectly with the surrounding architectural landscape along the Danube, where it is anchored like a “glass ship” in Linz. The structure provides eight thousand square meters of space for internationally renowned art, from the classical modern period to the present, along with an underground library, a museum shop, a restaurant, a café and a bar. In the Kunstmuseum Lentos, the award winning Swiss architect team of Jurg Weber and Josef Hofer have realized an outstanding architectural design that meets the highest structural, technical, and aesthetic standards. The Lentos was named the “Architectural Achievement of the Year” by the province of Upper Austria in 2003. Weber and Hofer also received the Client’s Prize awarded by the Austrian government the same year. English & German text ISBN 3775715193 £ 8.99 4

Architecture KISHO KUROKAWA Metabolism and Symbiosis Jovis Verlag Edited by Ingeborg Flagge, Peter Cachola, Schmal & Jochen Visscher Contributions by K. Ezawa, G. Feldmeyer, T. Igarashi, P. & Cachola Schmal 160pp. 250 colour illustrations Hardback: 21 x 28 cm This bilingual publication accompanies the exhibition at the German Museum of Architecture (DAM) in Frankfurt am Main and offers a representative survey of Kurokawa’s works from forty-five successful years. It presents his world-famous, almost classical buildings, but also less familiar designs such as the Capsule House “K” or Yamagata Hawaii Dreamland, which were well ahead of their times. Besides Kurokawa’s more recent internationally acclaimed projects such as the addition to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the volume also includes three projects currently under construction of astounding dimensions: the National Art Center Tokyo, the high-rise complex Fusionpolis in Singapore and Zhengdong New Town in China, a city to be founded for 150,000 in-habitants. English & German text ISBN 3936314446 £ 19.99 PETER EISENMAN Barefoot on white-hot walls Hatje Cantz Edited by Peter Noever Texts by Peter Eisenman, Greg Lynn, Emmanuel Petit & Mark Wigley 200pp. 190 colour illustrations Paperback. 24 x 32 cm Fragments of the many practices of the American architect Peter Eisenman are the subject of Barefoot on white hot walls, published in conjunction with an exhibition at the MAK, Vienna.This volume gathers critical texts by Peter Eisenman and other authors, including Mark Wigley, Greg Lynn, and Emmanuel Petit, ample project illustrations from Eisenman’s entire career, such as the memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin and the City of Culture of Galicia in Santiago de Compostela, as well as documentation of the exhibit installation itself. Both the catalogue and the exhibition are collections of autonomous fragments of different moments in Eisenman’s varied practice as an architect, including design projects since the 1970’s, building analyses, lecture excerpts, biographical information, and critical writings. It is as much a retrospective of nearly forty years of Eisenman’s work, as it is a document that considers the contemporary relevance of some of his architectural key concepts.

Architecture ALVAR AND AINO AALTO Furniture and Interiors Hatje Cantz Edited by Thomas Kellein, C. 224 pp. c. 180 colour illustrations Hardback - 17 x 24 cm Hugo Alvar Henrik Aalto, the most important Finnish architect of the twentieth century, was also one of the most noteworthy modern furniture designers. His bentwood Paimio Chair is regarded as one of the incunabula of twentieth- century design along with Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Charles Eames comparable seating furniture. His complete system of furniture—including stools, chairs, armchairs, and tea trolley with oversized wheels, all characterized by curving lines—was considered exemplary and acquired by the New York Museum of Modern Art as early as 1938. In collaboration with his first wife Aino Marsio (1894–1949), he also designed organic, floral forms in glass. His legendary Savoy Vase of 1936, created for the hotel of the same name, and the group of bowls designed to be combined to form the “Aalto Flower” have often been compared to sculptures and paintings of Classical Modernism. This extensive publication presents the pioneering furniture, glass objects, and lamps of Alvar and Aino Aalto in a large selection of photographs, paintings, drawings, and sketches.

Architecture ALFONSO MERCURIO Research from technology L’ Arca Preface & Introduction by Luigi Prestinenza Puglisi 140 pp. 160 colour illustrations Hardback. 24 x 34 cm Alfonso Mercurio Associates’ architecture stands out for its distinctly industrial connotations and for the technologically cutting-edge nature of the activities for which it provides spaces, environments and structure. Each work of this Italian firm combines its own architectural vocabulary with functional responses to the most demanding aspects of elaborate scientific/technological research. With their definitve features of stylistic clarity, spatial-functional layout, and clear-cut design guidelines, Mercurio’s architecture projects a rational, intelligible, calm and balanced image, capable of setting out the structures so that programmatic experimentation is turned into completed form and architectural idiom. His vast experience working on major constructions worldwide, designing industrial, housing and services buildings, has enabled Mercurio to develop his own authentic stylistic imprint, that places his work at the very focus of modern-day architectural design . English, French & Italian text ISBN 8878381438 £ 20.00 METAMORPHOSES Art and Architecture L’ Arca Preface by Federico Roggero & Agostino Magnaghi Introduction by Roberto Apostolo 192pp. numerous colour illustrations Paperback w/ flaps. 22 x 22 cm A university education programme – an exercise, research and study programme – that turns into an exemplary design procedure: this book contains the project devised by students at the Turin Faculty of Architecture from 1999-2004, coordinated by Prof. Roberto Apostolo, as part of research programme into how a work of art can be transformed into architecture, carefully analysing the key concepts in play, ranging from aesthetics and structural engineering to typology and spatial layout. This has resulted in a book which, after taking full advantage of the materials produced in a workshop in St. Petersburg, was the focus of attention at the recent Venice Biennial of Architecture, as a sort of cauldron of ideas, input, models and lines of research, in which the lively contributions from young people’s creative imaginations were combined with the rigours of method and firmness of the cultural premises on which it was grounded.ht.
