VSC06-003 The Routledge Companion to Landscape Studies
  Peter Howard/ 9781138720312/ Price:ĘG 175.00
Book Cover This new edition of The Routledge Companion to Landscape Studies contains an updated and expanded selection of original chapters which explore research directions in an array of disciplines sharing a concern for °•landscape°¶, a term which has many uses and meanings. It features 33 revised and/or updated chapters and 14 entirely new chapters on topics such as the Anthropocene, Indigenous landscapes, challenging landscape Eurocentrisms, photography and green infrastructure planning. The volume is divided into four parts: Experiencing landscape; Landscape, heritage and culture; Landscape, society and justice; and Design and planning for landscape. Collectively, the book provides a critical review of the various fields related to the study of landscapes, including the future development of conceptual and theoretical approaches, as well as current empirical knowledge and understanding. It encourages dialogue across disciplinary barriers and between academics and practitioners, and reflects upon the implications of research findings for local, national and international policy in relation to landscape. The Companion provides a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to current thinking about landscapes, and serves as an invaluable point of reference for scholars, researchers and graduate students alike.

VSC06-003 Routledge Handbook of Landscape Character Assessment: Current Approaches to Characterisation and Assessment
  Graham Fairclough/ 9781138803886/ Price:ĘG 175.00
Book Cover Over the last three decades, European practice in landscape has moved from a narrow, if relatively straightforward, focus on natural beauty or scenery to a much broader concept of landscape character constructed through human perception, and transcending any of its individual elements. Methods, tools and techniques have been developed to give practical meaning to this idea of landscape character. The two main methods, Landscape Character Assessment (LCA) and Historic Landscape Characterisation (HLC) were applied first in the United Kingdom, but other methods are in use elsewhere in Europe, and beyond, to achieve similar ends. This book explores why different approaches exist, the extent to which disciplinary or cultural specificities in different countries affect approaches to land management and landscape planning, and highlights areas for reciprocal learning and knowledge transfer. Contributors to the book focus on examples of European countries °V such as Sweden, Turkey and Portugal °V that have adopted and extended UK-style landscape characterisation, but also on countries with their own distinctive approaches that have developed from different conceptual roots, as in Germany, France and the Netherlands. The collection is completed by chapters looking at landscape approaches based on non-European concepts of landscape in North America, Australia and New Zealand.
VSC06-002 Routledge Handbook of Sustainable Design
  Egenhoefer, Rachel Beth/ 9781138650176/ Price:ĘG 165.00
Book Cover The Routledge Handbook of Sustainable Design considers the design, not only of artifacts, but of structures, systems, and interactions that bear our decisions and identities in the context of sustaining our shared planet.°@ In addressing issues of design for global impact, behavior change, systems and strategy, ethics and values, this handbook presents a unique and powerful design perspective.°@ Just as there are multiple definitions of design, so there are several definitions of sustainability, making it difficult to find unity. The term can sometimes be seen as a goal to achieve, or a characteristic to check off on a list of criteria.°@ In actuality, we will never finish being sustainable. We must instead always strive to design, work, and live sustainably. The voices throughout this handbook present many different characteristics, layers, approaches, and perspectives in this journey of sustaining.°@ This handbook divides into five sections, which together present a holistic approach to understanding the many facets of sustainable design: Part 1: Systems and Design Part 2: Global Impact Part 3: Values, Ethics, and Identity Part 4: Design for Behavior Change °@°@ Part 5: Moving Forward °@ This handbook will be invaluable to those wishing to broaden their understanding of sustainable design and students and practitioners of Environmental Studies, Architecture, Product Design and the Visual Arts.

Hinterland: America's New Landscape of Class and Conflict
  Phil A. Neel/ 9781780239026/ Price:ĘG 14.95
Book Cover Over the last forty years, the landscape of the United States has been fundamentally transformed. It is partially visible in the ascendance of glittering, coastal hubs for finance, infotech and the so-called °•creative class°¶. But this is only the tip of an economic iceberg, the bulk of which lies in the darkness of the declining heartland or on the dimly lit fringe of sprawling cities. This is America°¶s Hinterland, populated by towering grain-threshing machines and hunched farmworkers, where labourers drawn from every corner of the world crowd into factories and °•fulfilment centres°¶. Driven by an ever-expanding crisis, America°¶s class structure is recomposing itself in new geographies of race, poverty and production.
  Catherine Horwood/ 9781789140132/ Price:ĘG 16.00
Book Cover The rose is the world°¶s favourite flower °V and always has been.

This book traces the journey of the rose across the centuries, from battles to bouquets, charting its botanical, religious, literary and artistic history. From Cleopatra°¶s rose-petal-filled bed to Nijinsky°¶s Spectre de la rose, from the highly prized attar of rose oil so beloved by the ancient Persians to top-brand perfume labels today, and from Shakespearean myths about the Wars of the Roses to the significance of Queen Elizabeth i°¶s embroidered dresses, Rose encapsulates the story of what makes this botanical family so loved. Using historical, literary and botanical sources from the world°¶s major rose-growing nations, with vibrant illustrations from across the centuries and tales of medieval best-sellers, nurserymen°¶s rivalries and changing tastes in the flower bed, Rose will be a delight to read for both the gardener and non-gardener alike.

Book Cover The book explores the art and literature that tulips have inspired through history, from Dutch Masters, to Alexandre Dumas°¶ novel The Black Tulip, to the contemporary artist Gordon Cheung setting exotically streaked tulips alongside the Financial Times. Fisher also describes the tulip°¶s botanical characteristics, as well as the main, and most intriguing, species (which are still being counted, and well over a hundred have been named). Tulips may yet have the last laugh, however, because recent genetic studies have raised questions about their origins and classification. Tulip is a stunningly illustrated botanical and cultural history of the much-loved bloom, and will appeal to all who admire and grow this beautiful flower.
  Dan Torre/ 9781780237220/ Price:ĘG 16.00
Book Cover Cacti have played a prominent role in human history for thousands of years. Some species were revered by ancient civilizations, playing a part in their religious ceremonies; other varieties have been heavily cultivated for food or for the production of the bright red dye cochineal °V which is actually derived from a parasitic insect that feeds on the prickly pear cactus. Native to the American continents, cacti have spread worldwide and have become an important feature in many gardens and collections. Although not often in the culinary forefront of people°¶s minds, a number of varieties of cacti are delicious to eat °V it is a cactus that produces °•dragon fruit°¶, which is fast becoming one of the world°¶s more popular tropical fruits. In Cactus Dan Torre explores the natural, cultural and social history of cacti, with particular emphasis on how these remarkable plants have been represented in art, literature, cinema, animation and popular culture around the world. This is a highly original, entertaining and informative book that will appeal to everyone with an interest in cacti.

  Andrew Lack/ 9781780236537/ Price:ĘG 16.00
Book Cover The poppy is the classic cornfield plant. Throughout history it has been one of the most successful of all agricultural weeds. Its brilliant colour has made it one of our best-known plants °V it is beloved of artists and poets, though often hated by farmers. But its origins are obscure; it seems entirely confined to agricultural and marginal land, wherever it is found. Where was it before the inception of agriculture? And how is it that it is almost unique in its colour among the flowers of northern Europe? In Poppy Andrew Lack explores all aspects of one of our most familiar but declining flowers, combining history and biology with symbolic associations and connections with the arts. He describes why the poppy is so intimately associated with war and remembrance, and tells remarkable stories about the different varieties: the opium poppy, one of the oldest of narcotics, has had a profound influence on human history; the phrase °•tall poppy syndrome°¶ is now used to describe envy of the success of a peer; and in many countries the poppy has come to symbolize weddings or death. Beautifully illustrated throughout, Poppy will appeal to the many admirers of this most colourful and striking plant.
  Twigs Way/ 9781780236346/ Price:ĘG 16.00
Book Cover Carnations permeate our culture from the wedding bed to the funeral wreath. Derided in Shakespeare as °•nature°¶s bastards°¶, they challenged the tulip as the florist°¶s favourite flower, and went on to give their blessing to both a military coup and a Soho night club. Spanning the world from the gardens of the Ottoman Empire to the Mothers°¶ Day traditions of America via Chinese medicines and French empresses, Carnation is the first book to tell the cultural history of this hugely important flower. Twigs Way traces the trials and tribulations of early breeders, the florists°¶ fascination with striped and spotted varieties, delightful names such as the °•Lustie Gallant°¶ and the °•Bleeding Swain°¶, and the symbolism of the red, white and even the green carnation, which was made famous by Oscar Wilde. Those who appreciate the carnation°¶s glorious scent, both sensuous and soothing, will delight in the knowledge that the carnation can heal body and mind, used by herbalists in Europe and China. As it ranges from the traditions of the medieval marriage bed to Renaissance paintings of the Madonna and Child, this lavishly illustrated book will entertain anyone with an interest in history, art or culture. It is full of unexpected delights that will charm the mind and invigorate the senses °V just like the carnation itself.
  Gail Harland/ 9781780234922/ Price:US$ 16.00
Book Cover Quietly elegant ?owers dressed in simple white and green, snowdrops look too fragile to cope with wintery weather. They are however very resilient and are treasured by gardeners for their ability to ?ower early in the horticultural year. In Snowdrop Gail Harland explores how they have been used by non-gardeners too, as symbols of purity and of hope and consolation. In Victorian Britain snowdrop bands encouraged chastity among young women; today snowdrops are used as the symbols of several charities. Snowdrops are commonly found in ?ower paintings from the sixteenth century onwards and frequently appear in poetry and prose. Medicinally they are a source of galantamine, used in the treatment of Alzheimer°¶s disease. The gentle beauty of the snowdrop may have attracted the attention of poets and artists for centuries but today snowdrops are more popular than ever before, with record-breaking sums being reached for individual bulbs. The rise of snowdrop enthusiasts, known as galanthophiles, has been much commented on and an expanding number of snowdrop events draw fans from around the world to discuss, admire and buy specimens of these enchanting plants. Snowdrop is the ideal companion for galanthophiles or indeed any plant lovers who are interested in the emotional and cultural aspects of these much-loved plants.

  Votolato, Gregory/ 9781780234526/ Price:ĘG 20.00
Book Cover This book shows how and why the automobile has evolved since the late nineteenth century, becoming an object of unparalleled popular desire as well as the problem child of the modern world. Over the past century the internal combustion engine, the lightweight steam engine and the electric motor proved their value to industry and commerce by powering tractors, pickup trucks and delivery vans, while supporting civic order and public service in police vehicles and ambulances. Yet it was the private passenger car that became the most glamorous product of the industrial age, serving psychological, social and economic functions well beyond its utility as a means of transportation. Car introduces the automotive design process, exploring engineering innovation and stagnation, mass-production and aesthetic obsolescence, branded styling and genuine artistry.

  Penner, Barbara/ 9781780231938/ Price:ĘG 20.00
Book Cover Bathroom charts the evolution of the bathroom and the habits and lifestyles to which it gave rise. It shows how and why the bathroom emerged and how it became an international symbol of key modern values, such as cleanliness, order and progress. The modern bathroom, its technologies and its customs have been exported globally through colonialism, the media, fashion, world expositions and tourism. Barbara Penner explores the conflicts this process has caused, as well as discussing more user-friendly and low-tech alternatives, which are set to become ever more relevant in our environmentally conscious age. Abundantly illustrated, Bathroom examines examples from history and from across the globe. From squat to high-tech bidet toilets, and from cast-iron bathtubs to monsoon showers, this is an original and eye-opening study of a significant but often overlooked space.

Zen Landscapes: Perspectives on Japanese Gardens and Ceramics.
  Weiss, Allen S./ 9781780231907/ Price:ĘG 35.00
Book Cover These gardens partake of the Zen aesthetics of the tea ceremony, which also permeates Japanese poetry, painting, calligraphy, architecture, cuisine and ceramics, all of which entail different modes of representation. Japanese art favours suggestion and allusion, the indistinct over the literal: the moment when objects emerge or disappear, and the border between figuration and abstraction, are particularly valued. This is an art of the incipient and the potential, inspired by the intimation of continual transformation. This book shows how ceramics °V seen as the very sublimation of the earth °V plays a crucial role related at once to the site-specificity of gardens, to the ritualized codes of the tea ceremony and to the everyday gestures of the culinary table. Zen Landscapes is the first in-depth study in the West to examine the correspondences between gardens and ceramics, suggesting new implications for theories of representation, arguing for the rightful place of ceramics among the fine arts and above all revealing original ways of seeing. This unique study will appeal to readers interested in landscape design, ceramic appreciation and the customs, craftsmanship and culture of Japan.
A World of Gardens.
  Hunt, John D./ 9781861898807/ Price:ĘG 29.00
Book Cover Hunt shows here how cultural assumptions and local geography have shaped gardens and their meaning. He explores our continuing responses to land and reworkings of the natural world, encompassing a broad range of gardens, from ancient Roman times to early Islamic and Mughal gardens, from Venetian gardens to Chinese and Japanese gardens, as well as the invention of the public park and modern landscape architecture. A World of Gardens looks at key chapters in garden history, reviewing their significance in past and present and tracing the recurrence of different themes and motifs in the design and reception of gardens throughout the world. A World of Gardens celebrates the idea that similar experiences of gardens can be found in many different times and places, including sacred landscapes, scientific gardens, urban gardens, secluded gardens and symbolic gardens. Well illustrated and wide-ranging, this book is a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration.

SC06-425 The Global Studio: Linking Research, Teaching and Learning.
  Bohemia, Erik/ 9781607500018/ Price:EUR 45.00
The Global Studio is directed to design educators and is intended as a resource for those interested in exploring the potential of the Global Studio for the education of future designers. It is important to stress here, however, that the editors are not suggesting that all design courses should incorporate a global component, nor that all design courses should be conducted along the lines of a design studio. In fact, it is to a recognition of difference that they seek to draw attention. The aim is to generate different ideas and approaches for °•doing°¶ design education and ongoing discussion about what counts, and for whom, in relation to curriculum development in design. Another aim is to exemplify various ways of how research, teaching and learning can be linked. An important aspect of The Global Studio is that it provides a rich research site for exploring questions in relation to teaching and learning as well as doing product development in geographically distributed design teams.

SC06-361 The Modern Interior. (POD)
  Sparke, Penny/ 9781861893727/ Price:ĘG 22.50
Through the impact of shops like Habitat and IKEA, and of the countless glossy magazines, books and catalogues that focus on 'interior design', we have all become familiar with the idea of our homes and public interiors containing items of modern furniture, modern furnishings and decor. In the industrialized world, the 'modern interior' has become one of the most common aspirations of modern life. But in spite of its familiarity, it is rarely realized in its absolute form and is frequently compromised by the presence of traditional artefacts and stylistic references within it. Design historian and critic Penny Sparke provides a persuasive account of the forces, conflicts and debates that have underpinned the emergence of something we now effortlessly refer to as 'the modern interior'. She deftly unravels the shift from Victorian to modern style, and demonstrates that the easy transition so frequently portrayed is little more than a mythology. Crucially, she shows that, unlike designed buildings and artefacts, the fixed idea of the 'interior' has only ever existed in an idealized form, promoted through exhibitions, retail contexts and the mass media. The Modern Interior offers fascinating and eloquent insights into the work of many well-known designers, from C. R. Mackintosh, Adolf Loos, Josef Frank, Frank Lloyd Wright, Marcel Breuer, Lily Reich, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Charles and Ray Eames, to Florence Knoll, Philippe Starck, John Pawson and Norman Foster, and provides a broad international perspective. Essential reading for all students of modern design, architecture and culture, as well as a general audience interested in why the interior spaces we inhabit look the way they do.
The Judicious Eye: Architecture against the Other Arts.
  Rykwert, Joseph/ 9781861893581/ Price:ĘG 35.00
It is only in relatively recent times that architecture, together with engineering and other allied disciplines, has been divorced from the visual arts. In The Judicious Eye, renowned architectural historian Joseph Rykwert examines how this separation of roles occured, explains how architecture and the arts are now coming together again, and suggests what this implies for the future. Architecture was first withdrawn from the community of the arts during the Enlightenment, partly at the bidding of philosophers: Kant excluded it from aesthetic attention; later, Hegel declared it moribund and Schopenhauer found it crass. While architects bound themselves into a profession, other artists moved into marginal situations, and a widening gulf thus opened between architects and other °•visual°¶ artists. Joseph Rykwert explores this rift as well as the various attempts to heal it, most notably by Richard Wagner, who advocated the Gesamtkunstwerk, the total work of art, where music and literature play out their action against an appropriate architectural setting. He also explains how twentieth-century architects were enlisted by the artistic avant-garde in its battle against a stagnant society, and how artists today continue to be urged by various institutions to re-enter public space on their own terms. In the twenty-first century art and architecture are growing closer: some architects are attempting sculptural forms in their buildings, and sculptors have been called on to °•shape°¶ whole buildings to their fancy. The Judicious Eye is an illuminating, well-illustrated account of architecture°¶s separation and reconnection with the arts, which will interest specialists in architecture and engineering, as well as the wide audience for art and history.

Easy Rider. Motocross Grand Prix. James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause. The motorcycle is a global icon of untamed freedom, symbolizing a daring and reckless lifestyle of adventure. Yet there are few books that chronicle how and when this legendary vehicle roared down the open road. Motorcycle explores the roots of the rebel°¶s ultimate ride. After early incarnations as a nineteenth-century steam-powered bicycle and multi-wheeled vehicle, the modern motorcycle came into its own as a cheap, mobile military asset during World War I. From there, it rapidly spread through modern culture as a symbol of rebellion and subversive power, and Motorcycle tracks the symbolic role that the bike has played in literature, art and film. The authors also investigate the international subcultures that revolve around the motorcycle and scooter. They chart the emergence of biker culture and explore how the motorcycle came to represent untamed nonconformity in the US. In contrast, smaller scooters such as the Vespa and moped became the utilitarian vehicle of choice in space-starved metropolises across Europe and Asia. Ultimately, the authors argue, the motorbike is the exemplary Modernist object, dependent on the perfect balance of man and machine. An unprecedented and wholly engrossing account, Motorcycle is essential reading for the Harley-Davidson roadhog, bike aficionado and collector, or anyone who°¶s felt the power of the unmistakable king of the road.
New York Calling: From Blackout to Bloomberg.
  Berman, Marshall/ 9781861893383/ Price:ĘG 17.95
New York City in the 1970s was the setting for Taxi Driver, Annie Hall, and Saturday Night Fever, the nightmare playground for Son of Sam and The Warriors, the proving grounds for graffiti, punk, hip-hop, and all manner of other public spectacle. Musicians, artists and writers could subsist even in Manhattan, while immigrants from the world over were reinventing the city in their own image. Others, fed up with crime, filth and frustration, simply split. Fast-forward three decades and today New York can appear a glamorous metropolis, with real estate prices soaring higher than its skyscrapers. But is this fresh-scrubbed, affluent city really an improvement on its grittier °V and more affordable °V predecessor? Taking us back to the streets where eccentricity and anomie were pervasive, New York Calling unlocks life in the unpolished Apple, where, it seemed, anything could happen. All five boroughs °V the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island °V comprising hundreds of neighbourhoods and the interlaced worlds of politics, crime, drugs, sex, and mischief, are explored with a love of the city unclouded by romance yet undimmed by cynicism.
London: After a Fashion.
  O'Neill, Alistair/ 9781861893154/ Price:ĘG 16.95
London Fashion Week has maintained the capital°¶s position as one of the most important cities on the international fashion calendar for over twenty-five years. The roots of London's pre-eminence as an international epicentre of haute couture and pret-a-porter stretch back centuries, and they are explored here in London °V after a Fashion. Arguing that fashion was central to the impact of modernity in late nineteenth- and twentieth-century London, Alistair O°¶Neill maps the progress of fashion against the city°¶s neighbourhoods and streets. Carnaby Street, Soho, Jermyn Street and King°¶s Road each get their turn in London °V after a Fashion, along with many others, revealing the intersection between London°¶s urban history and the development of fashion. O°¶Neill°¶s analysis is not merely confined to clothing °V from the popularity of tattooing in the 1890s to the diverse uses of chintz in the 1980s design aesthetic, he traces the history of fashion in its various manifestations and explores how particular figures were key to disseminating fashion throughout British and international cultures.

  / 9780684313948/ Price:US$ 622.00
From diapers to Dior, saris to serapes, the world of clothing is nearly as vast and as ancient as the human race. Tracing the stylistic and functional threads that unite clothing across time and cul-tures -- as well as delving into the divergent styles and significance of apparel -- this A to Z encyclopedia is the essential resource for exploring the relationship between culture and couture. This broad-based set surveys clothing, body adornment, and examines the origins of clothing, the development of fabrics and technologies, and the social meanings of dress. It also presents information on representative costumes from a wide variety of historical eras, which are frequently the topic of student research. Topics range from the bustle, sari, and toga to Polyester and body piercing. The short entries explain the history of garments (necktie, codpiece, cocktail dress, bathing suit, burqua, Nehru jacket), techniques and manufactures (batik, dry cleaning, zipper, stone washing), body adornment (makeup, mask, tattoo, wig), and important persons and institutions (Coco Chanel, Edith Head, Yves Saint-Laurent, Fashion Institute of Technology). The longer essays provide cultural context: class, gender, sumptuary laws, costume design for stage and screen, advertising; fashion careers; ecclesiastical dress; military uniforms; etc. The set includes a comprehensive general index in the last volume, a timeline, and a topical outline. From the secondary school student writing a paper on dress among Native Americans to the university student interested in the underpinnings of clothing design, this set represents a unique and valuable source.
