            "A look at a range of small houses around New Zealand, and the strategies the owners used to get a toehold in the tight housing market. From building a secondary dwelling on an existing family section, to tiny houses on pocket handkerchief pieces of land, these approaches to hous...ing will give ideas and inspiration to all wondering how it can be possible to own a first home in the twenty-first century. Each entry begins with a statement about the strategy the owner used to achieve a home of their own. The houses range in size from 100 square metres right down to a very cosy 34 square metres! Beautifully photographed, and including plans and costs, the houses presented are in Puhoi, west and north Auckland, Raglan, Tamahere, Taupiri, Whanganui, New Plymouth, Wellington and Christchurch."--Publisher information.

            What might our cities look like in ten, twenty or fifty years? What kind of lifestyles may evolve and how will we move around, where will we live and work? How may future cities face global challenges? Imagining the city of the future has long been an inspiration for many archite...cts, artists and designers. This book explores how cities of the future have been visualised, what these projects sought to communicate and what the implications may be for us now - a visually accessible resource demonstrating how the methodology of futuring works and why it is valuable for architecture and urbanism. Although many of the visions for future cities were never built and remained imaginary or the backdrop for a fictional narrative, this does not mean they are unworthy of attention. Their importance extends in other ways through their questioning of reality. A multitude of climatic, social, economic and cultural pressures for global cities mean that more than even the way we vision the future has become particularly important. But how to best approach the future? This is a highly illustrated, useful and informative text to support those interested in developing an understanding of the built environment; the dreams, ambitions and desires that shaped it from early examples of the ideal society from the 16th century to contemporary projected cities envisioned for the rest of the 21st century and beyond.

            Modern bio-technologies give us unprecedented control of the fundamental building blocks of life. For designers, across a range of disciplines, emerging fields such as synthetic biology offer the promise of new sustainable materials and structures which may be grown, are self-ass...embling, are self-healing and adaptable to change. While there is a thriving speculative discourse on the future of design in the age of biotechnology there are few realised design applications. This book, the first in the Bio Design series, acts as a bridge between design speculation and scientific reality, and between contemporary design thinking, in areas such as architecture, product design and fashion design, and the traditional engineering approaches which currently dominate bio technologies. Filled with real examples, Living Construction reveals how living cells construct and transform materials through methods of fabrication and assembly at multiple scales, and how designers can utilise these processes.
