Reuse, Redevelop and Design How the Dutch Deal With Heritage
nai010 publishers 2017 ISBN 9789462083585 Acqn 27182
Pb 20x25cm 128pp 120ills 100col 27

Where there are vacancies, there is room for new uses, such as housing and leisure and health-
care facilities. This often results in surprising combinations, such as a school or a community
centre in a factory complex, a shop in a church, or a recreation area in a military zone. This book
presents 20 inspiring redevelopment projects. It addresses the story behind the success of
redevelopment in essays on heritage policy, public-private partnerships, financing, and design.
The creative way Dutch architecture offices deal with heritage is also catching on abroad, as
evidenced by OMAs projects in Italy and Germany, West 8s in Russia, Mecanoos in the United
States, and Maurers in China.

Henk Wildschut - Ville De Calais

Henk Wildschut 2017 ISBN 9789082588507 Acqn 27429
Pb 21x28cm 320pp 300col ills 59

Nearby the harbour city of Calais in France, a parallel world has existed for more than ten years.
Here, refugees from Africa and the Middle East await their chance to cross the Strait of Dover
and reach the United Kingdom. Since 2005 photographer Henk Wildschut has followed the
increasing stream of migrants whose journeys end in limbo outside Calais. Gradually, their forest
camps have grown to resemble a city, with houses, restaurants, churches, mosques, and
libraries. The paths have become a road network, and toilets and electricity have been provided.
Rather than capture personal stories and portraits, Wildschut documents the physical traces of
these invisible people.

The Secret Life Of Date Palms

Archizoom 2017 ISBN 9782970113201 Acqn 27459
Pb 21x30cm 90pp 67ills 47col 32.75

Six date palm characteristics provide the structure of this book: Form, Fruit, Hydration,
Metamorphosis, Shade and Shadow, and Gender. Each investigation draws on Emirati traditions
and tacit knowledge to share a narrative that is infused with sensitivity, genuine curiosity, and
human inventiveness. This is the story of a species that continues to provide great value to the
Middle East. The hope is that the spirit of engagement and ingenuity employed throughout history
inspires others to find value in their own regional resources, climates and cultures.

Reactivate Athens
Ruby Press 2017 ISBN 9783944074160 Acqn 27480
Pb 19x26cm 464pp 220ills 200col 45

Reactivate Athens was conceived in 2013 as a participatory research and design initiative
directed by the RA Lab, a collaboration between the Urban-Think Tank Chair of Architecture and
Design at ETH Zurich and local partners already operating in the city. The interdisciplinary team
critically analysed longer-term processes of urban decline and generated new ideas for the
Athens city centre that mobilise latent resources to address the debilitating impacts of the wider
economic and social crisis. Engaging local residents in an inclusive process to define an
alternative urban vision, the project helped shape the 101 ideas that were further developed and
refined for this book.

Pb 17x21cm 256pp 200ills 50col 27

When weather becomes part of the design of buildings, new affiliations between meteorology and
architecture emerge. As the interaction with and use of energy and natural flows within cities and
buildings becomes increasingly crucial to the future of urban design, questions regarding the
appropriate formal and spatial expressions of these forces must also be addressed. ROEWU, a
collaboration between Stephen Roe and Chiafang Wu, combines the experiences each brings
from the volatile weather inherent to their respective places of origin, Ireland and Taiwan. This
book offers new perspectives as the intersections of climate and architecture are explored.

detail how a public work was funded using resources deriving from an urban intervention of a
private nature while respecting both history and context, and developed and realised through a
participatory approach.

From Harmony To Chaos - Le Corbusier, Varese, Xenakis. And La Poeme Electronic

Duizend & Een 2017 ISBN 9789071346491 Acqn 27555
Hb 22x27cm 266pp 260ills 110col 52.95

Le pome lectronique was the multimedia event presented in the Philips Pavilion at the
Brussels Worlds Fair of 1958. The structure and genesis of the event are discussed in this
publication against a background of the conceptual viewpoints of the three artists involved: Le
Corbusier, Edgard Varse, and Iannis Xenakis. Despite that Philips ultimately showed its own
vision of this spectacle of colour, light, and sound, the book deals with the scenario as it was
originally planned, offering a new reconstruction based on an in-depth analysis. Pivotal to this is
Le Corbusiers notion of synthse des arts; in this case, the synthesis of architecture, visual arts,
film, spoken word, and music.
