Jonathan Wright The Ambassadors: From Ancient Greece to the Nation State


An authoritative and entertaining account of the earliest ambassadors, who were at once diplomats, explorers and chroniclers of exotic civilisations.In this book of extraordinary journeys and epochal encounters, Jonathan Wright traces the ambassadors’ story from Ancient Greece and Ashoka’s empire in India to the European Enlightenment and the birth of the nation state. He shows us Byzantine envoys dining with Attila the Hun, 13th-century monks journeying from Flanders to the Asian steppe, and Tudor ambassadors grappling with the chaos of Reformation. He examines the rituals and institutions of diplomacy, asking – for instance – why it was felt necessary to send an elephant from Baghdad to Aachen in 801 A.D. And he explores diplomacy’s dangers, showing us terrified, besieged ambassadors surviving on horsemeat and champagne in 1900s Beijing.Wherever they journeyed, ambassadors reported back on everything they encountered – from moralities and myths to the plants and animals, fashions and foods of the countries in which they found themselves. Exchanging ideas and commodities, they enabled countries and civilisations to get acquainted in sometimes unpredictable ways.Whether discussing the replacement of the roving by the resident ambassador or the subjects of the diplomatic immunity, gift-giving, intelligence-gathering and extraterritoriality, the author has fresh and intriguing things to say. For ambassadors, as much as any conqueror, merchant or explorer, have helped to write the human story.

A.T. Smith Elizabeth Case Study Houses


The Case Study House program (1945-1966) was an exceptional, innovative, and unique event in the history of American architecture. Concentrated on the Los Angeles area, the program oversaw the design of 36 prototype homes, and sought to make available plans for modern residences that could be built easily and cheaply during the postwar building boom. This highly experimental program generated designs that would redefine the modern home, and its profound influence on architecture-American and international-was evident during the programs existence and remains so today. This compact guide includes all the projects featured in our XL edition, with over 150 photos and plans, and a map showing the locations of all the Case Study Houses, including those no longer existant.

Book of Houses


More than any other kind of building, the family house reflects social change and technical innovation. It thus has a particular model character, allowing a high degree of experimentation with materials and spatial concepts. This is true of all the houses presented here: their interiors depart from the traditional division of space in favor of integrated rooms and functional solutions, while the exteriors are characterized by a careful choice of surface materials, the sensitive treatment of the plots and resources, and the attention paid to the surroundings and landscape. Bearing the stamp of the personal ideas and wishes of the clients, not to speak of the available budget, the result is a set of highly individual houses. This volume demonstrates in more than 550 illustrations, plans, elevations, and diagrams how modern architectural challenges can be met successfully.

Tiny Houses


In the spirit of treading a bit lighter on the planet, Tiny Houses explores the microgreen side of sustainable architecture-tiny homes where architects and owners challenge themselves to live with less, but to get more out of the experience. This eco-aware idea springs from the need to conserve resources and reduce our individual carbon footprints. A wee alternative to McMansion sprawl, this low-impact movement asks people to lighten-up. Tiny Houses brings together an international - collection of over thirty unique homes and living concepts under 1,000 square feet-some practical and others conceptual-ranging from tree houses and prefabricated dwellings to floating houses. The book presents building plans, vivid photographs of the homes, arid inventive compact living solutions.

Forsyth Michael Interior Finishes and Fittings for Historic Building Conservation


Interior Finishes & Fittings for Historic Building Conservation complements Materials & Skills for Historic Building Conservation, combining the history and application of each material with current knowledge of maintenance and conservation techniques. Of direct practical application in the field, it takes the reader through the process of conserving historic interior finishes, covering everything from decorative plasterwork, joinery and paint colour; to chimneypieces, lighting and fire safety management. The series is particularly aimed at construction professionals – architects, decorative arts historians and specifiers, surveyors, engineers – as well as postgraduate building conservation students and undergraduate architects and surveyors as specialist or optional course reading. The series is also of value to other professional groups such as commissioning client bodies, managers and advisors, and interested individuals involved in house refurbishment or setting up a building preservation trust. While there is a focus on UK practice, most of the content is of relevance overseas (just as UK conservation courses attract many overseas students, for example from India, China, Australia and the USA). The chapters are written by leading conservators, historians, architects, and related professionals, who together reflect the interdisciplinary nature of conservation work. This volume on the historic interior is the fourth of a series on Historic Building Conservation that combine conservation philosophy in the built environment with knowledge of traditional materials and structural and constructional conservation techniques and technology: Understanding Historic Building Conservation Structures & Construction in Historic Building Conservation Materials & Skills for Historic Building Conservation Interior Finishes & Fittings for Historic Building Conservation While substantial publications exist on each of the subject areas – some by the authors of the Historic Building Conservation series – few individuals and practices have ready access to all of these or the time to read them in detail. The aim of the series is to introduce each aspect of conservation and to provide concise, basic and up-to-date knowledge within four volumes, sufficient for the professional to appreciate the subject better and to know where to seek further help.

Melvyn Green Building Codes for Existing and Historic Buildings


Learn to apply the International Building Code and International Existing Building Code to historic buildings Written for architects, engineers, preservation, and code enforcement professionals, this is the only comprehensive book that examines how the International Building Code (IBC) and the International Existing Building Code (IEBC) can be applied to historic and existing buildings.

Building Codes for Existing and Historic Buildings begins with a discussion of the history of building regulations in the United States and the events and conditions that created them. Next, it provides thorough coverage of: The rationale behind code provisions and historic preservation principles Major building code requirements: occupancy and use, types of construction, and heights and areas Building performance characteristics: fire and life safety, structural safety, health and hygiene, accident prevention, accessibility, and energy conservation Case study projects that reinforce the material covered Additionally, the book includes building analysis worksheets—both blank and filled-in versions with examples—that illustrate how to develop a code approach for an individual building. If you are a professional at any level who is working on creating a plan that meets the intent of the code for historic or existing buildings, Building Codes for Existing and Historic Buildings gives you everything that you need to succeed.

Small Eco-houses


The emergence of a greater awareness of the environment, the application of new technical knowledge, and the use of traditional construction methods such as orientation towards the sun, are motivating a growing number of owners to have ecological houses built on a small scale. These small eco-houses are a first step towards a culture of sustainable and responsible construction, based on the use of natural materials which save energy and contain environmental contamination, but also on the creation of small oases that offer a high quality of life. There are numerous examples of how pleasant ecological houses can be from an architectural viewpoint, and the variety of ecological materials now available allows architects to select their own approach. This books presents a selection of small eco-houses: considered architectural anomalies for some time, these houses have laid the foundation for tomorrows construction.

Gautrand Jean-Claude Paris, mon amour


At once cosmopolitan metropolis and venue for a pensive stroll, Moloch and emblem of the modern, Paris has been a source of inspiration for countless artists and writers down the ages. But not least it is the home and constant muse of a relatively young art: photography. Since the earliest days of the daguerreotype right up to our time, renowned photographers such as Joseph Nicephore Niepce, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, and Jeanloup Sieff have lived and worked in the city of lights. Over the years a love affair developed between Paris and photography, giving rise to a remarkable record of the metropolis and a telling history of a new art form. This volume takes the reader on numerous walks, camera in hand, through the streets of Paris. Atmospheric black-and-white photos, shot by great photographers over two centuries, reveal the dramatic and the tranquil, the historic and the everyday-in the capitals parks and gardens, boulevards and backstreets, passages and arcades, bistros and nightclubs.
