Organization space : landscapes, highways, and houses in America by Keller Easterling( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 421 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."--Jacket
Extrastatecraft : the power of infrastructure space by Keller Easterling( Book )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 358 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"--

Subtraction by Keller Easterling( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unbuilding is the other half of building. Buildings, treated as currency, rapidly inflate and deflate in volatile financial markets. Cities expand and shrink; whether through the violence of planning utopias or war, they are also targets of urbicide. Repeatable spatial products quickly make new construction obsolete; the powerful bulldoze the disenfranchised; buildings can radiate negative real estate values and cause their surroundings to topple to the ground. Demolition has even become a spectacular entertainment. Keller Easterling's volume in the 'Critical Spatial Practice' series analyzes the urgency of building subtraction. Often treated as failure or loss, subtraction - when accepted as part of an exchange - can be growth. All over the world, sprawl and overdevelopment have attracted distended or failed markets and exhausted special landscapes. However, in failure, buildings can create their own alternative markets of durable spatial variables that can be managed and traded by citizens and cities rather than the global financial industry

Benjamin H. Bratton : dispute plan to prevent future luxury constitution by Benjamin H Bratton( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Equal parts Borges, Burroughs, Baudrillard, and Black Ops, Dispute Plan to Prevent Future Luxury Constitution charts a treacherous landscape filled with paranoid master plans, failed schemes, and dubious histories. Benjamin H. Bratton’s kaleidoscopic theory-fiction links the utopian fantasies of political violence with the equally utopian programs of security and control. Both rely on all manner of doubles, models, gimmicks, ruses, prototypes, and shock-and-awe campaigns to realize their propagandas of the deed, threat, and image. Blurring reality and delusion, they collaborate on a literally psychotic politics of architecture. The cast of characters in this ensemble drama of righteous desperation and tactical trickery shuttle between fact and speculation, action and script, flesh and symbol, death and philosophy: insect urbanists, seditious masquerades, epistolary ideologues, distant dissimulations, carnivorous installations, forgotten footage, branded revolts, imploding skyscrapers, sentimental memorials, ad-hoc bunkers, sacred hijackings, vampire safe-houses, suburban enclaves, big-time proposals, ambient security protocols, disputed borders-of-convenience, empty research campuses, and robotic surgery. In this mosaic we glimpse a future city built with designed violence and the violence of design. As one ratifies the other, the exception becomes the ruler

"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."--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 5 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
