Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture

Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture by Robert Venturi
English | November 1977 | ISBN: 0810960230 | 132 pages | PDF | 26 MB

First published in 1966, and since translated into 16 languages, this remarkable book has become an essential document in architectural literature. As Venturi's ""gentle manifesto for a nonstraightforward architecture,"" Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture expresses in the most compelling and original terms the postmodern rebellion against the purism of modernism.

Environmental Diversity in Architecture

Environmental Diversity in Architecture
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 041531478X | edition 2004 | PDF | 256 pages | 16,1 mb

The inspiration for this book came from numerous buildings, books and people. Two books that have remained with us since our student days — Rasmussen’s Experiencing Architecture and Heschong’s Thermal Delight in Architecture — conveyed to us a sense of enjoyment of architecture that went beyond the spatial and stylistic. This was reinforced by the Cambridge Masters course in Environmental Design in Architecture, which we both attended, founded and coordinated at that time by Nick Baker and Dean Hawkes. If there is an axiom that came out of that education then it could read as ‘Building science is at the service of architecture, and architecture at the service of people’.

Travel to the mystery, drama, and splendor of the Middle Ages—to the times of great royal dynasties, intrepid knights, religious passions, merchant empires, and towering art … Tucked away within the romantic landscapes of Europe, a remarkable range of beautifully preserved medieval cities and towns invites discovery—time capsules of history where you can stroll the cobbled streets of another time; savor the treasures of palaces, stately mansions, soaring cathedrals, and grand civic centers; and walk the mighty bastions and ramparts that once defended them.

Spaces Speak, Are You Listening?: Experiencing Aural Architecture  eBooks & eLearning

Spaces Speak, Are You Listening?: Experiencing Aural Architecture

Spaces Speak, Are You Listening?: Experiencing Aural Architecture
Publisher: The MIT Press | ISBN: 026251317X | edition 2009 | PDF | 436 pages | 2,95 mb

A very engaging, wide-ranging look at the aural environment from many perspectives: cultural, historical, architectural, physical, sociological, political and more. The authors explore many of the deep and often times not-so-obvious connections and influences in an unusual, informative and refreshingly multi-disciplinary approach. Even though covered topics are broad in scope and complexity, the book is written in an easy and engaging conversational style that is neither academically stodgy nor technically overwhelming. But neither does it attempt to simplify the subject into shallow triviality.

Rome was the greatest empire of the ancient world, a colossus that spanned three continents, ruled over millions of people, lasted more than a thousand years, and left as its most enduring legacy the foundation of much of Western culture. Yet, in an empire in which perhaps only one person in ten was literate, how was Rome able to so successfully communicate its civic and cultural values, or project a knowledge of Roman power, to every corner of the realm?
