Organization space landscapes, highways, and houses in America by Keller Easterling ( )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,045 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The dominant architectures in our culture of development consist of generic protocols for building offices, airports, highways, and houses. For Keller Easterling, these organizational formats are not merely the context of design efforts - they are the design. Bridging the theoretical gap between architecture and infrastructure, Easterling views architecture as part of an ecology of interrelationships and linkages, and she treats the expression of organizational character as part of the architectural endeavor." "By showing the reciprocal relations between systems of thinking and modes of designing, Easterling establishes unexpected congruencies between natural and built environments, virtual and physical systems, highway and communication networks, and corporate and spatial organizations. She frames her unconventional notion of site not in terms of singular entities, but in terms of relationships between multiple sites that are both individually and collectively adjustable."--BOOK JACKET

Enduring innocence : global architecture and its political masquerades by Keller Easterling ( Book )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Enduring Innocence, Keller Easterling tells the stories of outlaw "spatial products" - resorts, information technology campuses, retail chains, golf courses, ports, and other hybrid spaces that exist outside normal constituencies and jurisdictions - in difficult political situations around the world. These spaces - familiar commercial formulas of retail, business, and trade - aspire to be worlds unto themselves, self-reflexive and innocent of politics. But as Easterling shows, these enclaves can become political pawns and objects of contention. Jurisdictionally ambiguous, they are imbued with myths, desires, and symbolic capital. Their hilarious and dangerous masquerades often mix quite easily with the cunning of political platforms. Easterling argues that the study of such "real estate cocktails" provides vivid evidence of the market's weakness, resilience, or violence." "Enduring Innocence collects six stories of spatial products and their political predicaments: cruise ship tourism in North Korea; high-tech agricultural formations in Spain (which have reignited labor wars and piracy in the Mediterranean); hyperbolic forms of sovereignty in commercial and spiritual organizations shared by gurus and golf celebrities; automated global ports; microwave urbanism in South Asian IT enclaves; and the global industry of building demolition that suggests urban warfare. These regimes of nonnational sovereignty, writes Easterling, "move around the world like weather fronts"; she focuses not on their blending - their global connectivity - but on their segregation and the cultural collisions that ensue."--BOOK JACKET

You are the city : observation, organization, and transformation of urban settings by Petra Kempf ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cities are hybrid entities based on multilayered and sometimes contradictory organizing principles. As complex networks of geographic, economic, political and cultural segments, they are caught up in a constant process of differentiation. How are we to understand such dynamic processes, especially the complex connections between individuals, whose movements and interactions leave traces in the urban landscape? This publication offers architects, urban planners and general readers interested in city design and growth a novel approach, a mapping tool that creates a framework for understanding the continually changing configuration of the city. With transparent slides, the tool allows one to superimpose various realities like layers and build new urban connections. It invites readers in short to immerse themselves in the complexity of our cities
Situating ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The work by the six young architectural practices presented here offers myriad responses to contemporary site conditions, including poisoned soil, dead malls, abandoned freight containers, and industrial infrastructure. The projects also embrace new design methods and materials enabled by emerging technologies. The seventh in an annual series of publications, Situating reveals the ideals of young practices addressing a redefined and dynamic concept of site and demonstrates design methodologies that reimagine the role of the architect."--BOOK JACKET

Extrastatecraft : the power of infrastructure space by Keller Easterling ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Infrastructure is not only the underground pipes and wires that control our cities but also the hidden rules for structuring the spaces all around us ' free trade zones, smart cities, suburbs and malls. Extrastatecraft charts the rise of the hidden rules that control this "infrastructure space," and shows how it is creating new forms of power, beyond the reach of government. In a series of fascinating case studies, Easterling visits fields of infrastructure with the greatest impact on our world ' tracking everything from standards for the thinness of credit cards, to the urbanism of mobile telephony as the world's largest shared platform, to the rules for the free zone as the most contagious new world city paradigm. In conclusion, she proposes some unexpected techniques for resisting power in a contemporary world. From the Hardcover edition
