architect, verb by Reinier de Graaf
If De Graaf’s debut book 'Four Walls and a Roof' was about debunking myths within the architecture profession, 'architect, verb' aims to debunk myths projected onto architecture by the outside world – a rebuttal of doctrines which have been applied to architecture over the last twenty years. The incorporation of extraneous terms such as “livability”, “innovation” or “wellbeing” into the glossary of architecture is part of an ongoing trend in which the language to debate architecture is less and less architects' own, and more and more that of outside forces imposing outside expectations. Once a profession known for its manifestos, architecture finds itself increasingly forced to adopt ever-more extreme postures of virtue, held accountable by the world of finance, the social sciences or the medical sector.

The Architecture of Public Space
1 of 2
This new book by Labics, one of Italy’s leading architectural firms, is devoted to the country’s architecture of public space. Galleries, loggias, porticoes, steps, and courtyards, are the elements that characterize Italy’s historic towns and cities—and that make the experience of its public space so intense. Yet the volume does not feature new designs by Labics themselves: rather, Maria Claudia Clemente, Francesco Isidori, and their collaborators set out to explore historic spaces, to analyze their histories and typologies, and to document and describe them through newly taken photographs, plans, and diagrams, treating them as contemporary artifacts. Through the illustration and categorization of thirty-two case studies, The Architecture of Public Space has the ambition to build a general theory on the design of public space; a theory that acts before and independently of language and that is based on the idea that the city is structured through the relationship between architecture and public space. With an essay written by Marco Biraghi, professor of history of contemporary architecture at the Politecnico di Milano. 2023, paperback, 468 pages, 118 color and 271 b/w illustrations, 23 x 31 cm

SMALL HOUSES, Philip Jodidio
1 of 2
A Small House is a tribute to the endless artistic inventiveness of architects and ingenuity of perception of the familiar and known concepts. It is also a conscious pivot towards sustainability and reduction of impact on the environment as well as a daring attitude of change in lifestyle. As humanity faces inevitable pressures such as climate change, an increase in population, and strain on resources, these solutions are helping shape what the world may look like in the future. Whether in the dense urban areas of Tokyo, the wilderness of Australia, the woods of Canada, or a rooftop in Ecuador, this is the world of Small Houses. The one common point they share, is that they all have an area of no more than 100 square meters. Spanning 25 countries such as Brazil, Hungary, South Korea, Netherlands, USA, Japan, and Australia, described here there are houses designed by 57 architects, including Takeshi Hosaka’s Love2 House, Aranza de Ariño’s Casa Tiny, and the work of Jakub Szczęsny, Charles Pictet, Lada Hršak, BIG, and Fran Silvestre, among others. This is a journey not only through recent evolutions in architectural design and creativity, but it is also a step toward a more sustainable world.

The Life and Work of Luis Barragan
1 of 2
Luis Barragan is an icon of contemporary architecture-a genius of color, light, walls, the garden, the tower, the rooftop, he has influenced an entire generation of current architects, not least of them his one-time collaborator Ricardo Legorreta. Admirers of his work note its serenity, its harmony. In 1979, when Barragan was presented the Pritzker Prize, his work was referred to as "a sublime act of the poetic imagination." It is this aspect of Barragan's work that is presented in The Life and Work of Luis Barragan, a biographical portrait that reveals Barragan as a master of what he himself called "emotional architecture." Text and photographs combine in The Life and Work of Luis Barragan for a personal and evocative portrayal of the Mexican master that will fascinate everyone familiar with his legacy, and intrigue those who are only just discovering the power and influence of his work.

Le Corbusier: Polychromie Architecturale - Color Keyboards from 1931-1959, Second Revised Edition.
1 of 2
This highly complex and exact reproduction printed in pigments of Le Corbusier's renowned Salubra Colours in 13 sample cards, 4 slides and 63 color sample sheets provides an indispensable basis and invaluable tool for architects, interior and graphic designers. Corbusier designed two color collections for the Salubra wallpaper company: the Clavier de couleurs of 1931, with 43 colors, and the 1959 collection, with 20. Not content with the mere color selection, drawn from his experience as an architect and painter, he also organized the tones on 12 sample cards in such a manner that, by using a slider, three or five colors could be varyingly isolated or combined. Each card contained a different color scheme meant, when applied, to create a particular spatial effect. This would become not only a useful tool but also a kind of testament of the purist color theory, an essential groundwork and a valuable instrument for all those who deal with color in theory or practice. Vol.1: 96 pp. 150 sketches and illus.; Vol.2: 13 sample cards w. 63 color shades and 4 slides; Vol.3: 63 Color plates. 250 pp., 209 color, 20 B&W illus., 3 vols/slipcase.

Paul Klee: Pedagogical Sketchbook
1 of 2
In his legendary Pedagogical Sketchbook, Paul Klee takes a theoretical approach to drawing using geometric shapes and lines. Evincing a desire to reunite artistic design and craft, and written in a tone that oscillates between the seeming objectivity of the diagram, the rhetoric of science and mathematics, and an abstract, quasi-mystical intuition, Klee’s text expresses key aspects of the Bauhaus’ pedagogy and guiding philosophies. In this book, he presents his own theory about the relationships between line, shape, surface, and color in the visual space.

a+u 04:23 Alvar Aalto Library Landscapes
1 of 2
ten public libraries designed by Finnish architect Alvar Aalto between the 1920s and 1970s. It was after the completion of the Vyborg Library, a project which began in 1927 and took seven years to complete, that the architect started to gain international recognition. While designing Vyborg Library, Aalto discovered “fantastic mountain landscapes”, leading him to create valley-like depressions as spaces for people to gather and read, surrounded by stepped terraces of bookshelves and natural light. Among the libraries presented here are Rovaniemi City Library, Woodberry Poetry Room at Harvard University, Wolfsburg Cultural Center, and Mount Angel Abbey. 176 p, ills colour & bw, 22 x 29 cm, pb, Japanese/English
