Cycle Infrastructure nai010 publishers 2013 ISBN 9789462080515 Acqn 22299 Pb 20x25cm 192pp 90ills 70col 37 Cycling is experiencing a worldwide revival. It is a sustainable, affordable and above all trendy alternative to the car and public transport. Experiments in new cycling facilities are underway everywhere. Cycle Infrastructure includes international examples, interviews with the makers of prominent cycling routes and a glimpse at future innovations. The possibilities that cycling offers for the spatial quality and the liveability of cities are enormous, but have not been fully exploited. Cycle Infrastructure is an inspiring handbook for anyone interested in the development, design and promotion of high-quality cycling routes. The goal is to activate the full potential of cycling for the (urban) landscape and to consider cycling infrastructure as an integral design challenge instead of purely an issue of traffic engineering. Stefan Bendiks and Aglae Degros are the founders of Artgineering, a practice for research and design on the boundary between urban planning and infrastructure.

DASH Building Together - The Architecture of Collective Private Commissions NAi Publishers 2013 ISBN 9789462080133 Acqn 21551 Pb 23x28cm 160pp 200col ills 32 Several municipal governments in the Netherlands are looking closely at collective private building commissions. By stimulating private individuals to form commissioning collectives, cities like Almere and Amsterdam hope to relaunch the jammed housing market. In this they are taking a step towards what has been routine in Germany for many years under the name Baugruppen. DASH Building Together examines, in several essays and interviews, the opportunities collective private commissions present for housing design. Collective commissions are not a new phenomenon in the Netherlands. While in the twentieth century these were mainly idealistic, small-scale initiatives like communes, today motivations are also economic. DASH Building Together presents contemporary and historic examples of projects developed under collective commissions, in the Netherlands and beyond. An interesting question is whether direct contact between users and architects leads to innovative architecture and new building and dwelling types. Documented projects include: Harmoniehof, Amsterdam. J.C. van Epen; Usonia, Pleasantville. Frank Lloyd Wright; Thalmatt 1, Herrenschwanden. Atelier 5; Calle de Arturo Soria, Madrid. Bayon, Aroca, Bisquert y Martin; Egelwier, Leusden. Hans Ruijssenaars; WindSong Cohousing, Langley. Davidson, Yuen, Simpson architecture; MissSargfabrik, Vienna. BKK-3; Egebakken, Nobedo.

In Detail - The Work of cepezed nai010 publishers 2013 ISBN 9789462080614 Acqn 22243 Pb 21x30cm 176pp 250col ills 38 A handbook for students and architects, featuring 17 projects by cepezed, extensively documented, with special focus on detail, including drawings, floor plans and photos. In architecture, the detail seldom gets the attention it deserves. Connections are often unsystematic junctions of materials that are hidden from view by additional devices. The architects of cepezed, however, consider the detail an essential part of every design and therefore detailing as an integral part of the design process. Indeed clear, well considered and visually attractive details are a crucial characteristic of cepezeds ingenious architecture, which is surprisingly natural and human. In Detail - The work of cepezed presents unique details in an extensive selection of cepezed projects and discusses their place and significance within the total design. Using informative drawings and photos it offers detail solutions at various levels of scale. The result is a handbook for students and fellow architects, featuring directly applicable solutions and ideas for the effective use of detail as an essential instrument of architectural design.

So it goes in our world of diffuse and shared knowledge. But if criticism has evolved into criticisms, how can we interpret and learn from the babble of opinions? This dilemma comes in tandem with another: the crisis of publishing. With declining print sales and slashed subsidies, many critics are out of work. Two fundamental tasks lie ahead: reviving the productive value of criticism, and finding new profitable ways to broadcast it to the world.

Are we witnessing a resurgence of the square as public space, a physical reality for shared expression? A diverse range of contributors critically address these and other highly topical questions.

Housing projects in Taipei, according to C. David Tseng, derive from existing elements that are deeply rooted in our urban living culture. Changes in social structure, economic improvements and green awareness all contribute to an evolution of the ideal of cohabitation, demonstrated through key projects and expanded with fresh design ideas.
