            Obra Gruesa / Rough Work (bilingual edition): Illustrated Architecture by Smiljan Radic (Pamphlet / Other)

            Smiljan Radic is famous for his architectural designs, but especially for one attention-drawing coup: in 2014, his Serpentine, designed to look like a gigantic stone, astonished visitors. This building was in no way his first stroke of genius, however. Radic has long been a super...star in his home country of Chile, thanks to numerous small and large projects such as the regional theater Biobio or the house he dedicated to Le Cobusier's Poeme de l'angle droit. Using minimal means, he creates extraordinary spaces. His architectural structures are like sculptures that respond to their environments. Obra Gruesa/Rough Work presents twenty-four key works produced between 1990 and 2015. Richly illustrated, with countless conceptual sketches and construction drawings, this edition contains two new essays by Moises Puente and the famous Swiss curator Hans Ulrich Obrist. English and Spanish.

            The Routledge Companion to Italian Fascist Architecture: Reception and Legacy
             

            The Routledge Companion to Italian Fascist Architecture: Reception and Legacy (Hardback)

            Today, nearly a century after the Fascist Party came to power in Italy, questions about the built legacy of the regime provoke polemics among architects and scholars. Mussolini's government constructed thousands of new buildings across the Italian peninsula and islands, and in co...lonial territories. From hospitals, post offices and stadia, to housing, summer camps, Fascist Party headquarters, ceremonial spaces, roads, railways and bridges, the physical traces of the regime have a presence in nearly every Italian town. The Routledge Companion to the Reception of Italian Fascist Architecture investigates what has become of the architectural and urban projects of Italian Fascism, how sites have been transformed or adapted, and what constitutes the meaning of these buildings and cities today. Essays include a rich array of new arguments by both senior and early career scholars from Italy and beyond. They examine the reception of fascist architecture through studies of destruction and adaptation, debates over re-use, artistic interventions, and even routine daily practices, which may slowly alter collective understandings of such places. Paolo Portoghesi sheds light on the subject from his internal perspective, while Harald Bodenschatz situates Italy among period totalitarian authorities and their symbols across Europe. Section editors frame, synthesize and moderate essays that explore Fascism's afterlife; how the physical legacy of the regime has been altered and preserved and what it means now. This critical history of interpretations of fascist-era architecture and urban projects broadens our understanding of the relationships among politics, identity, memory and place. This Companion will be of interest to students and scholars in a range of fields including: Italian history, architectural history, cultural studies, visual sociology, political science and art history.

            In this fully updated new edition, Frank Sear offers a thorough overview of the history of architecture in the Roman Empire.

This seminal work covers the architecture of the Republic, Age of Augustus, the eastern and western empire, Roman North Africa, and the Late Antique period, exploring subjects such as patronage, building techniques and materials, Roman engineering, town planning, and imperial propaganda in a concise and readable way. Illustrated with nearly 300 photographs, maps and drawings, Roman Architecture continues to be the clearest introductory account of the development of architecture in the Roman Empire.
