The surreal house by Jane Alison( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This multi-disciplinary and cross-generational project explores the central importance of the house within surrealism and its legacies.

Future city : experiment and utopia in architecture by Jane/ Brayer, Marie-Ange/ Migayrou, Frederic/ Spiller, Neil Alison( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cities are the ultimate and most complex manifestations of human civilization. For millennia, architects and builders have attempted to rationalize them into well-functioning and livable places for their inhabitants. While many aspects of a city evolve naturally, other facets result from masterful human interventions and radical imagination. Future City celebrates the visionary urban plans that have preoccupied architects trying to create a better world from the 1950s to the present." "Featuring hundreds of seminal and influential works by some sixty architects, ranging from the groundbreaking experiments of Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid, Peter Cook, and Daniel Libeskind alongside a new generation of rising stars, including Asymptote, NOX, UN Studio, and Greg Lynn, this publication assembles several generations of utopian architecture in a single volume. The book provides an indispensable resource for contemporary architectural and urban development and innovation in the third millennium. Future City demonstrates how breaking from convention can reveal new territories of design and architecture in our great cities."--Jacket

The Vulgar is the first exhibition to explore the inherently challenging but utterly compelling territory of taste in fashion, from the renaissance through to contemporary design.

Drawn from major public and private collections worldwide, The Vulgar showcases over 120 stunning objects, ranging from historical costumes to couture and ready-to-wear looks, with contributions from leading contemporary designers such as Walter van Beirendonck, Chloé, Christian Dior, Pam Hogg, Charles James, Christian Lacroix, Lanvin, Moschino, Miuccia Prada, Agent Provocateur, Elsa Schiaparelli, Philip Treacy, UNDERCOVER, Viktor & Rolf, Louis Vuitton and Vivienne Westwood"--Publisher's description
