            We live in an urban age. From Shanghai to Johannesburg, Delhi and Rio, millions of people move to the city each year. Are we seeing the rise of a new 'urban' order? Will cities soon become the new global leaders? In this timely and compelling book, Michele Acuto cuts through the ...hype to offer a cautious and nuanced view of the role of cities in international political decision-making. Cities, he contends, are already leading on many global agendas. Yet, they must also be stewards of global futures, working in coalition with other authorities to safeguard equitable and sustainable solutions to problems that will increasingly be played out in the streets of cities all over the world.

            Based on careful analysis and experience in all housing sectors and house types, this handbook explains and demonstrates how to incorporate the most effective energy saving measures in the existing housing stock. It begins by setting out the basic aims of sustainable refurbishmen...t before presenting a large number of illustrated case studies from a range of single- and multi-family dwellings. A practical section then details the specific measures that can be taken to reduce the energy demand of buildings, with extensive references to further resources. Written for architects and building engineers, the book combines technical and managerial solutions demonstrating that a new refurbishment culture needs to be created that radically improves the energy performance of all existing houses whenever any opportunity presents itself and whenever any work is carried out.

            Montage and the Metropolis: Architecture, Modernity, and the Representation of Space

            Montage and the Metropolis: Architecture, Modernity, and the Representation of Space (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            • To Order

            <![CDATA[Montage has been hailed as one of the key structural principles of modernity, yet its importance to the history of modern thought about cities and their architecture has never been adequately explored. In this groundbreaking new work, Martino Stierli charts the history o...f montage in late 19th???century urban and architectural contexts, its application by the early 20th???century avant???gardes, and its eventual appropriation in the postmodern period. With chapters focusing on photomontage, the film theories of Sergei Eisenstein, Mies van der Rohe's spatial experiments, and Rem Koolhaas's use of literary montage in his seminal manifesto Delirious New York (1978), Stierli demonstrates the centrality of montage in modern explorations of space, and in conceiving and representing the contemporary city. Beautifully illustrated, this interdisciplinary book looks at architecture, photography, film, literature, and visual culture, featuring works by artists and architects including Mies, Koolhaas, Paul Citroen, George Grosz, Hannah Hoch, El Lissitzky, and Le Corbusier.]]>
