Condition: GOOD CONDITION


Because we live in an environment so difficult to define or even see, we need architecture to make sense of it. Confronted by a world afflicted by sprawl, Aaron Betsky challenges us to see architecture as a way of understanding, experimenting with and changing our physical reality. He argues passionately for a new space of freedom and imagination, proposing an entirely new way of undoing the indiscriminate, sometimes disorderly world we have so carelessly constructed.Architecture Must Burn shows us an architecture of unfolding, clothing and collage. Mixing current theories about spatiality,... View more info

Morningside Heights, the institutional heart of New York City, is also one of the city's most architecturally distinguished neighborhoods. The high plateau that forms Morningside Heights is geographically isolated within the city and remained largely undeveloped even as neighboring Harlem and the Upper West Side became prestigious residential communities. At the end of the nineteenth century, institutions relocated to the plateau where sizable plots were available at a convenient distance from the built-up city. In 1887 Episcopal Bishop Henry Potter announced plans for the construction of a... View more info

From one of the most beloved authors of our time--more than six million copies of his books have been sold in this country alone--a fascinating excursion into the history behind the place we call home. "Houses aren't refuges from history. They are where history ends up." Bill Bryson and his family live in a Victorian parsonage in a part of England where nothing of any great significance has happened since the Romans decamped. Yet one day, he began to consider how very little he knew about the ordinary things of life as he found it in that comfortable home. To remedy this, he formed the... View more info

Harold, author of several previous books, discusses the real world considerations of construction along with a brief history of architecture, while bringing a writer's sensibility to the challenges and details of his many projects. To build a house, to take control of this basic of life-it's a perennially compelling dream, appealing to the deepest part of us. Never more so than in the current housing crisis. "Those who can, do; those who can't, teach" -overcoming this proverbial putdown of the impracticality of academics, an English professor teaches himself carpentry renovating an old fixer-u...

More than a century after its inception, the skyscraper has finally come of age. Though it has long been lampooned as a venal and inhospitable guzzler of resources, a revolutionary new school of skyscraper design has refashioned the idiom with buildings that are sensitive to their environments, benevolent to their occupants, and economically viable to build and maintain. Designed by some of the best-known architects in the world, these towers are as daring aesthetically as they are innovative environmentally. "Big and Green" is the first book to examine the sustainable skyscraper, its histo... View more info

Classical architecture is a visual "language" and like any other language has its own grammatical rules. Classical buildings as widely spaced in time as a Roman temple, an Italian Renaissance palace and a Regency house all show an awareness of these rules even if they vary them, break them or poetically contradict them. Sir Christopher Wren described them as the "Latin" of architecture and the analogy is almost exact. There is the difference, however, that whereas the learning of Latin is a slow and difficult business, the language of classical architecture is relatively simple. It is still... View more info
