1 of 2
Hardcover, 7.5 x 10.25 in. / 240 pgs / 120 color. Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa fused sensitivity for local context with the technological discoveries and design principles of modernism. Accordingly, Bawa often incorporated materials (local stone and timber) and layouts (high roofs, cross-ventilation, vast overhangs) specific to Sri Lanka’s monsoon climate and storied architectural history—from the cave monasteries of the Anuradhapura period to the feudal Walauwa style of manor houses—into his modernist designs.

Touch Wood
1 of 2
Wood is the building material of the 21st century. Understanding the renewable raw material and its potential requires recognizing it in its ecological, technological and cultural-historical contexts. These are explored in the publication and presented with inspiring examples – practical and visionary. On this basis, the use of wood in architecture appears to be the order of the day, and Switzerland’s leading role in wood processing and building aesthetics is demonstrated in an international context. Authors from various disciplines create the content framework in which wood can be experienced sensually and its possibilities and limitations can be discussed. Touch Wood – Material, Architecture, Future is aimed at an engaged audience of experts and laypersons who want to enrich their experiences with knowledge and thus become actors in the promotion of wood in architecture. In addition to documenting exemplary buildings in accessible texts and with numerous illustrations, the publication also illuminates the many relationships that connect people with wood as a material.

Maison Sonia Delaunay also explores the international textile companies with whom she collaborated, and shows how she explored the relationship between art and industry, and the ways in which she used her many abilities to design a visionary modern life. The book includes the first scholarly essays on Delaunay's collaborations with silk industrialist Robert Perrier and couturier Jacques Heim, who were among her most important collaborators.
