In the modern architecture, wood plays an especially central role, and the significance of this wonderfully diverse raw material in the design of sophisticated buildings and interiors continues to increase.Historically speaking, building without wood is practically unimaginable.Over the centuries, skills and traditions in the industrial arts harbouring an immense wealth of experience have evolved on virtually all continents.The breadth of the material has thus became extremely wide&894 on the one hand, wood serves as a constructive material, yet it can also be a membrane-like surface.Its employment in interior decorating is just as feasible as its function as a weatherproofing facade skin. Its appearance can be rough and raw, but also sophisticated and clean.It allows a sensual perception that turns almost nuances, from harsh, almost cool, to warm and cozy, into perceptible experience.This book present remarkable object from the realm of private living space, public buildings and religious structures.Along with well-designed hotels, restaurants and bars, they form the latest currents of a modern international wood-building culture.Plans will be included.

Tokyo Architecture & Design


Tokyo constitutes the most populated metropolitan area on the planet&894 it’s houses 33 million inhabitants who get around on the world’s most complex railroad system, as well as enjoying the highest number of restaurants per inhabitant in the world. It is also, possibly, the megalopolis with the highest proportion of recent architecture. Despite the fact that Tokyo’s origins date back to the 17th century _ when it was known as Edo _ and that it went trough a golden age at the end of the 19th century after being declared the capital of Japan, little remains of its original architecture as result of two significant events that almost completely destroyed it: an earthquake in 1923, which triggered plans for a rebuilding programme that proved unfeasible due to the high cost, and the bombardments of World War II, which almost halved the population.In no other city are the boundaries between inside and outside, public and private, up and down as blurred as in Tokyo&894 this lack of frontiers has shaped an urban setting without parallel, which is reflected equally by the most state-of-the-art skyscraper and the most intimate store. This amalgam of architectural typologies has established itself as a reference point for designers from all over the world.

Contemporary Corporate Architecture


Throughout history, institutions and governments have always constructed large and ostentatious buildings as a way of demonstrating their power. By means of this aspect of design, many fast-growing, predominantly young but established companies have publicized their growth and shored up their identity at the same time. Contemporary Corporate Architecture has become a further element of a company's identity, achieved through the cooperation of several disciplines such as visual communications, marketing and graphic design, among many others. Sustainability is an aspect increasingly present in this type of architecture, which incorporates different elements to reduce environmental impacts, particularly in relation to the type of materials used in construction.

Contemporary Urban Design


The architectural discipline of urban design falls into the broad category of landscape architecture and is applied as a social and esthetic means for interpreting the shape of cities and towns and their public spaces. The structure of a city is not the sum of its architectural shapes but the integration of these shapes into a specific and dynamic understanding of space. Public spaces become gathering points and recreational areas where neighbours can meet and contribute to socio-urban interaction. The presented projects in this book cover everything from new large neighbourhoods to the installation of street fixtures or the illumination of a small square.

Contemporary House Design


It is true, that our society is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace. Our way of life is changing along with our needs. In recent years the climate has been changing in a way that is perceptible for the first time in human existence. Therefore new building materials, groundbreaking techniques or a simple return to traditional forms of construction, together with carefully studied systems for saving energy and making the most of the resources afforded by nature, are conforming contemporary architecture. Passive energy-saving systems, sustainable materials and the concept of designs made to last decades are reactions to the growing awareness about the environment from the local to the global viewpoint.This book is a demonstration of how today's houses are integrating all these elements.

Club Design


The word "disco" comes from the french "discothèque", a fusion between "disco" and "bibliothèque" which first came into use during World War II when the ban on jazz and dance halls gave rise to clandestine clubs and the figure of the "disc-jockey". Places like "Chez Régine" attracted the Parisian jet-jet, while in the US, "Le Club" in New York, and later the legendary "Studio 54" institutionalized a space characterized by stobe lights and mirror balls. Since then, clubs have experienced a transformation linked to the needs of a demanding party public eager to experience a wide range of sensations in an extreme and provocative decor. This publication presents an extensive compilation of the hottest clubs in the world's leading cities.

Hi-Tec Architecture


In the late 1970s, word spread that there was a new style that increasingly included cutting-edge technological and industrial elements in the construction of buildings. The style was called "hi tec" and took on the architectural landscape by a storm. Characteristic of high tech buildings are lightness of materials and transparency. The present volume shows many of the most outstanding technological developments in the contemporary architectural scene, which in future will be used more and more in buildings and residential properties.

Exhibition Design


There has barely been an important architect in the world for the past century that has not taken advantage of the possibilities of the tentative play and experimentation provided by the design of exhibition sites for trade fairs and world expos. This publication aims at providing a combination of very recent examples from trade fairs and cultural spaces. The spectacular selection of projects ranges from a small stand designed to capture the visitor's attention at a large trade fair, such as the Sci Fi project, to large exhibition sites of museum-like proportion such as the BMW Center, as well as temporary exhibition spaces in cultural centers and permanent showrooms. There are also various interesting examples of innovations in the design of exhibition spaces whose goal is simply to promote with no link to a specific commercial or cultural product.

Love Design


Love and design have more in common than one might think at first glance: they can both break old habits and shape new ways in our day-to-day lives, they can both be exhilarating, a true revelation, but also potentially disrupting, both individually and collectively, and they can both have the power to make us see the world in a new light. Love Design explores the multifaceted relationship between design and the scope of emotions generally associated with the feeling called love, be it affection, desire, pleasure and romance, but also jealousy, distance, separation or pain. Over a hundred designers united here present a selection of new and usual products and special editions, in categories such as fine textile, sound wave jewelry, blushing lighting, erotic tableware, lover's furniture and more surprising delights - all objects specifically designed to enhance (or distort) our pleasurable sense of togetherness in every possible and impossible way. The book Love Design will be released on the occasion of the Love Design exhibition running parallel to the Milan Furniture Fair 2009.

Shoe Design

Nowadays, footwear and accessories are the most lucrative and important facets of the fashion industry. New ideas are emerging, pushing boundaries and taking creativity to a new level.This book presents designers that have a unique identity regardless of commerciality, and a strong voice of their own, current trends aside. Not all are strictly shoe designers, there are global designers from various geographical and cultural backgrounds included. But all share one common interest: a passion for shoes.

Contemporary Fashion Photographers


information Fifty contemporary, cutting-edge photo-graphers open our eyes to the magical artificiality embraced by fashion photography today: chronicling the very processes of fashion, fashion photography is like fashion itself - it celebrates the immediate, the frivolous and the ephemeral. The striking images in this book playfully flirt with superficiality as readily as they take on the more established aesthetic conventions of art photography. Ingrained with paradox and contradiction fashion photography mirrors the moods and desires of the moment. And more: self-referential as it is by nature, it is able to appeal not only to the eye, but also to the mind, questioning the very limits of desire, meaning and representation. Frivolously fabulous fashion at its best.
