            Since prehistory, bunkers have been built as protection from cataclysmic social and environmental forces, and as places of power and transformation. Today, the bunker has become the extreme expression of our greatest fears: from pandemics to climate change and nuclear war. And on...ce you look, it doesn't take long to start seeing bunkers everywhere. In Bunker, acclaimed urban explorer and cultural geographer Bradley Garrett explores the global and rapidly growing movement of 'prepping' for social and environmental collapse, or 'doomsday'. From the 'dread merchants' hustling safe spaces in the American mid-West to eco-fortresses in Thailand, from geoscrapers to armoured mobile bunkers, Bunker is a brilliant, original and never less than deeply disturbing story from the frontlines of the way we live now: an illuminating reflection on our age of disquiet and dread that brings it into new, sharp focus. The bunker, Garrett shows, is all around us: in malls, airports, gated communities, the vehicles we drive. Most of all, he shows, it's in our minds.

            Make Sense: Architecture by White

            Make Sense is both a memento and an imperative. White Arkitekter first set the sustainable agenda 66 years ago; now, standing at close to 1,000 employees and as one of the most established and respected practices in Scandinavia, White Arkitekter continues to set the standard for ...sustainable building design and research-led practice. Make Sense is an illustrated account of White Arkitekter's continued pursuit of the unknown that unfolds across 25 award-winning projects completed by the practice, from standout urban schemes including the distinctive V ven Cultural Centre in Ume , Sweden, and W rth's Swedish headquarters in rebro, to mindful structures built into nature, including the Naturum Vattenriket visitor centre nestled in the wetlands of the River Helge and the recently completed Karlshamn Cold Bath House, a contemplative oasis on the sprawling southern Swedish coastline. The culture of Sweden--where the landscape is old, but ideas are young-- is at the heart of the practice's ethos, which strikes a natural harmony between function and delight, innovation and sustainability. White Arkitekter's innate curiosity takes its work beyond established patterns, developing and communicating knowledge by research and through practice. From this foundation, White Arkitekter has built a collective of architects working side by side with anthropologists, planners with artists and sustainability experts with researchers. Research is one of the main strategies White Arkitekter harnesses to achieve its vision of an architecture that supports all aspects of sustainable development. Through studies of context and the wider world, and through collaboration between the different disciplines of its practitioners, White Arkitekter constantly challenges itself and its clients to take built projects to higher levels of sustainability. It takes curiosity to go beyond given patterns, knowledge to make sense of what is found there and dedicated research to structure new modes of educatio

            A duo of high-profile tastemakers invites readers inside fifteen homes that are infused with the blend of vintage-contemporary style that is the essence of Parisian chic. Style icon Ines de la Fressange and globetrotting dilettante Marin Montagut share a uniquely Parisian sensibi...lity for interiors that combine a variety of design traditions into a harmonious living space. The authors take readers inside fifteen Parisian apartments-including their own- that demonstrate how to imbue a home with a sense of well-being through a mix of vintage and contemporary styles. Each owner is passionate about home decor-whether in a studio, loft, or duplex-and they continually evolve their interior with new treasures uncovered in flea markets, on their travels, at design fairs, or in artisanal workshops. Natural materials-wood, wicker, bamboo, cotton, and linen-create warmth and personality. Vintage suitcases, vegetable crates, and jewel- toned pharmaceutical jars transform into charming storage containers. Embroidered cushions, terrariums, and fresh flowers enliven a room with pops of color. Collages, original art, or humble objects displayed in a series add a signature style to each residence. With extensive photographs, watercolor illustrations, and practical advice on the indispensable objects that incarnate each maison , this exquisite volume is rich in inspiration for creating Parisian chic at home.
