"In the end Barkow Leibinger are bricoleurs as much as they are engineers. . . . There is always an element of inspired performance in bricolage. And as the greatest philosophers in German aesthetics tellus, such play (Spiel) is also essential to art; it opens up a realm for an imaginative response to any question. In the end, this is what Barkow Leibinger offer us all: Spielraum, room for play, space for invention." Hal Foster Grouped in five thematic fields-"Fabrication / Research," "Liminal Facade / Deep Surface," "Ultra Structural," "Makeover," and "Site Specific"-this comprehensive monograph presents the work of theBerlin-based, German-American architectural practice Barkow Leibinger with contributions by Hal Foster, Carson Chan, Sarah Whiting, Brett Steele, and Iwan Baan.

Building - Inside Studio Gang Architects (Paperback, New): Jeanne Gang, Zoe Ryan Building - Inside Studio Gang Architects (Paperback, New)

R758 Discovery Miles 7 580 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

One of the foremost architects working today, Jeanne Gang is widely recognized for her innovative and independent practice. Studio Gang Architects confronts pressing contemporary issues and seeks to answer questions that exist locally but resound globally. The firm's work is exemplified by recent projects such as the Aqua Tower in Chicago, an 82-story high-rise, which critic Paul Goldberger described as "reclaim[ing] the notion that thrilling and beautiful form can still emerge out of the realm of the practical." With the studio poised to contribute a new set of buildings to the global skyline, Building examines its most current work, twelve built and unbuilt projects that address four major issues facing contemporary architecture: its relationship to nature, the development of dense urban areas, the integration of the ideas of community members, and architecture and performance. Featuring essays, interviews, sketches, and drawings-many previously unpublished-this beautifully illustrated book provides an insider's look at a cutting-edge architectural practice.

R436 Discovery Miles 4 360 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

Examines "Acquisition Reform" and "Acquisition Excellence" initiatives undertaken in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) over the period 1990 to 2003. In the Department of Defense, 63 distinct acquisition reform (AR) initiatives were undertaken from 1989 to 2002. By looking at what the AR movement was in the 1990s (by describing the initiatives launched under its name) and by letting acquisition personnel describe in their own words how their work was affected by those initiatives, the authors seek to shed light on what the AR movement has and has not accomplished in terms of changing the way the acquisition process works.
