The sentinel : masterworks of science fiction and fantasy by Arthur C Clarke( Book )

9 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author of more than fifty books, with over 15 million copies in print, Arthur C. Clarke is one of the most distinguished figures in modern science and science fiction. He is the inventor of the concept of the communications satellite, a past Chairman of the British Interplanetary Society and a member of the Academy of Astronomics. His novel Rendezvous with Rama was the winner of science fiction's three highest honors: the Hugo, Nebula and John W. Campbell awards. Arthur C. Clarke has covered the Apollo missions with Walter Cronkite and has lectured internationally on the peaceful exploration of space. The Sentinel is a brilliant collection of Clarke's best short fiction. The haunting title piece of this exciting collection inspired 2001: A Space Odyssey, one of the most famous science fiction movies of all time. * ln the provocative 'Breaking Strain, ' Grant and McNeil are plodding along the trade route from Earth to Venus when a meteor pierces their freighter and depletes their oxygen reserve. As the frightening reality of emergency sinks in, neither wants to be the first to speak the shattering truth--that if one man dies now, the other might just have enough oxygen to survive the trip. * 'Guardian Angel, ' the seed for the novel Childhood's End, offers an ironic look at the nature of freedom. Perched in the sky above London's UN headquarters is the ship of Karellen, emissary of the alien Overlords, who rule the world as benevolent dictators. Reluctant to show himself, Karellen transacts business with UN Secretary-General Stormgren on board the ship from behind a screen, while on the planet below, the defiant Freedom League resistance demands to learn the identity of their subjugators. And soon, even the cooperative Stormgren is more than a little curious about them. ln fact, he has a plan. * 'Refugee' introduces us to Prince Henry who, as heir to the British throne, can have just about anything he wants. Just about anything. For Captain Saunders of the spaceship Centaurus literally holds the key to the one thing Henry wants most, but cannot have. * You'll also join the crew of an alien ship sent to rescue Earthlings from an impending nova, only to find the planet empty ... discover the incredible secret of a lost civilization on Jupiter's innermost satellite ... participate in a truly possible yacht race to the moon."--Jacket

War and architecture = Rat i arhitektura by Lebbeus Woods( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War and Architecture is a timely and moving response by architect Lebbeus Woods to the bombing of Sarajevo. With text in both English and Croatian, accompanied by the author's exquisitely drawn, hauntingly beautiful proposals, the book is both dedicated and addressed to the citizens of this ravaged city. Lebbeus Woods has long been fascinated by the intimate ties between architecture and violence. He identifies the two predominant patterns for rebuilding cities following catastrophic destruction: restoring the city exactly to its previous, "historical" state; or "erasing" the remains of the city to construct a new utopia. These, he argues, are twin forms of denial. Woods draws an analogy to the process of biological and emotional healing, presenting architectural forms that act as "injections," "scabs," "scars," and "new tissue," within the complex organism of a city. "Only by facing the insanity of willful destruction," he argues, "can reason begin to believe again in itself."

Sequences : saw only the moon by Lars Kordetzky( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Subject of the book is an architectural encounter with the psyche, the starting point being an intervention in a solitary confinement cell of a psychiatric clinic in 1997. Crumbling edges, shifting perceptions, a world of confinement and liberated space, a network of thoughts and illusions, "Sequences" describes the development of architectonic structures in an in-between world of unstable equilibrium. Architecture, art, psychiatry, psychology and philosophy are all linked by perception. By means of pictures, drawings and (thought) models, the different layers are exposed. The book has no beginning and no end, it offers an insight into various sequences involved in the design process
Transparent architecture by Gordon Gilbert( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compilation of work by Architect Gordon Gilbert explores the idea of transparency in architecture, ranging from an open physical transparency, to clarity of structure, to the dematerialization of the physical object, and further to evolving and expanding states of architectural awareness. This exploration is facilitated through a revealing juxtaposition of experimental drawing, subliminal texts, and constructed work

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stephen Talasnik's intricate and mesmerizing work bridges the disciplines of art and architecture in this debut monograph.0A polymath whose work encompasses sculpture, drawing, and architectural land art, Stephen Talasnik manifests an elaborate and evocative aesthetic vision. Inspired by visionary artists and architects such as Leonardo da Vinci, Giovanni Piranesi, Gustav Eiffel, Antoni Gaudí, and Buckminster Fuller, Talasnik presents a fantastical world that looks as archaeological as it does futuristic. 'Unearthed' presents a broad spectrum of Talasnik's work spanning the last decade, starting with floating sculptures commissioned by the Denver Botanic Garden, continuing on through projects at Storm King Art Center and Russel Wright Design Center, and culminating with a 30-foot-high timber sculpture at the new, highly lauded Tippet Rise Art Center in Montana. The publication of 'Unearthed' coincides with the first exhibition at Tippet Rise devoted to a single artist. Numerous examples of Talasnik's drawings are also included, as well as smaller-scale indoor and outdoor sculptures in diverse materials. Exhibition: Tippet Rise Art Center, Fishtail, USA (19.10-28.10.2018)
Spatial pathology, floating realities by Margot K Krasojevic( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Margot Krasojevic – architect and psychologist – is no longer an unknown quantity on the experimental architecture scene, although she is considered a member of the younger generation. Her lectures at well-known schools and centers such as the Bartlett School of Architecture in London, the University of Washington, the University of Australia or Beijing, to name only a few, and contributions to international publications have attracted great interest in her conceptual and visual work. Krasojevic’s central interest is in the relationship between space and body, the question of the degree to which body and psyche adjust to existing typologies and vice versa. The book designed by Büro Destruct is an image/text collage that comprises Krasojevic’s work over the last 10 years. It is meant for architects and students with an interest in experimental architecture and all those interested in spectacular digital visualizations
