Living complex : from zombie city to the new communal by Niklas Maak( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world will need approximately one billion new housing units in the next twenty years. Given the strain on resources and land, houses as we know them today will no longer be economically or ecologically viable. But what should take the place of contemporary dwelling structures? What will new housing concepts look like? And what prevents us from building them?"--Page 4 of cover
Atlas der seltsamen Häuser und ihrer Bewohner by Niklas Maak( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plötzlich steht da ein Haus: Eine gigantische Burg aus weißem Holz, errichtet von einem New Yorker Kunstspekulanten. Eine Halbkugel aus Beton, die ein Filmregisseur für sich und seine Geliebte auf einer Steilküste in Sardinien aufgestellt hat. Eine Hütte in Mexiko, in die sich ein amerikanischer Ex-Banker zurückgezogen hat. Exzentrische Bauherren gönnen sich bisweilen recht eigentümliche Häuser, denen Niklas Maak in der ganzen Welt auf der Spur war. Er hat mit Architekten und Bewohnern gesprochen und dabei viel über die Träume, Ängste und Obsessionen des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts erfahren. Häuser erzählen die tollsten Geschichten. Niklas Maak hat sie aufgeschrieben - nicht nur für Liebhaber von Architektur
Wohnkomplex : warum wir andere Häuser brauchen by Niklas Maak( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in German and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warum versprechen sich viele Menschen vom Einfamilienhaus ein besseres Leben? Sie verlassen die Städte und ziehen ins Umland, wo sich ein trostloser Siedlungsbrei in die Landschaft ergießt. Häuser für Kleinfamilien, wie wir sie heute kennen, werden wir uns in Zukunft ökonomisch und ökologisch ohnehin nicht mehr leisten können. Wie aber sollen unsere Häuser in Zukunft aussehen? Was verraten sie über unser Leben? Könnte man sie sich ganz anders vorstellen? Dieses Buch, witzig, streitbar und bestens recherchiert, zeigt, dass das Bauen in Deutschland neu gedacht werden muss. Und wie man andernorts in Europa, Japan und Amerika bereits wohnt - jenseits von Vorstadteinöde und Apartmentriegel. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)
Never ending stories : the loop in art, film, architecture, music, literature, and cultural history by Aleida Assmann( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In today's world, the loop seems to be virtually ubiquitous--whether in music, on the internet, in video art, or in hotel lobbies and living rooms, where monitors present the endless crackling of an open fire or fish swim around in aquariums. At the same time, the self-contained circuit, the endless loop, has been an essential topos of cultural history and philosophy since antiquity. With "Never-Ending Stories", the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg presents, for the first time worldwide, a formally and thematically, as well as spatially and temporally wide-ranging research project dedicated to the interdisciplinary phenomenon of the endless loop in art, film, architecture, music, literature and cultural history."--[www.kunstmuseum-wolfsburg.de/exhibitions/never-ending-s tories-the-loop-in-art-film-architecture-music-literature-and-cu ltural-history]

Exit by Isabelle Graeff( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Isabelle Graeff (b. 1977 in Heidelberg) became known in 2010 for her series My Mother And I. For this project she spent years accompanying her mother with a camera, in order to question the relationship between mother and child. The photographs for her project Exit now expand the search for identity to an entirely new country. Between August 2015 and June 2016 the London-based photographer observed with a compassionate eye the crisis of a country whose population has been painfully divided since the Brexit referendum at the very latest. A country divided between people whose gaze is directed outward and people who are looking inward. A country that has again begun a new search for an identity that already exists in all of its mystical beauty, because its nature remains untouched by social developments. Graeff traces these upheavals, changes, and developments with her camera. The critic Niklas Maak has written an insightful essay about this, which contextualizes the images on various levels
E2A architecture : Piet Eckert & Wim Eckert by Piet Eckert( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the first comprehensive monograph on the Swiss architects E2A. Brothers Piet and Wim Eckert consider their work an interpretation of contemporary living conditions. In today's context, expectations, experiences, and ambitions characterize places and dynamically collide with reality. The disparate becomes the program of the discipline of architecture which, in their work, becomes a persistent journey of discovery that explores and exposes associations and relationships. Here, one experiences a fine line between dream and reality which could be described as a systematic incoherence. Thus, rather than designing the perfect machine for an idealized image of society, E2A integrates varied and diametrical terms and conditions that were once mutually exclusive. Projects, ideas, essays, and notes supplement built projects and record positions, assessments, and ongoing questions. It is in this way that we become accomplices in the intense debate about the city and architecture
Sou Fujimoto : Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013 by Sōsuke Fujimoto( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013 is designed by multi award-winning Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto (born 1971)--the thirteenth and, at 41, youngest architect to accept the invitation to design a temporary structure for the Serpentine Gallery. The most ambitious architectural program of its kind worldwide, the Serpentine's past pavilions have included designs by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei (2012), Frank Gehry (2008), the late Oscar Niemeyer (2003) and Zaha Hadid. Inspired by organic structures, such as the forest, the nest and the cave, Fujimoto's signature buildings inhabit a space between nature and artificiality. Fujimoto's pavilion is a delicate, latticed structure of steel poles, lightweight and semi-transparent in appearance, that allows it to blend, cloud-like, into the landscape and against the classical backdrop of the Gallery's colonnaded East wing. It is designed as a flexible, multi-purpose social space. This volume documents the project
