How do we think about architecture historically and theoretically? Forty Ways to Think about Architecture provides an introduction to some of the wide-ranging ways in which architectural history and theory are being approached today. The inspiration for this project is the work of Adrian Forty, Professor of Architectural History at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London (UCL), who has been internationally renowned as the UK's leading academic in the discipline for 40 years. Forty's many publications, notably Objects of Desire (1986), Words and Buildings (2000) and Concrete and Culture (2012), have been crucial to opening up new approaches to architectural history and theory and have helped to establish entirely new areas of study. His teaching at The Bartlett has enthused a new generation about the exciting possibilities of architectural history and theory as a field. This collection takes in a total of 40 essays covering key subjects, ranging from memory and heritage to everyday life, building materials and city spaces. As well as critical theory, philosophy, literature and experimental design, it refers to more immediate and topical issues in the built environment, such as globalisation, localism, regeneration and ecologies. Concise and engaging entries reflect on architecture from a range of perspectives. Contributors include eminent historians and theorists from elsewhere - such as Jean-Louis Cohen, Briony Fer, Hilde Heynen, Mary McLeod, Griselda Pollock, Penny Sparke and Anthony Vidler - as well as Forty's colleagues from the Bartlett School of Architecture including Iain Borden, Murray Fraser, Peter Hall, Barbara Penner, Jane Rendell and Andrew Saint. Forty Ways to Think about Architecture also features contributions from distinguished architects, such as Tony Fretton, Jeremy Till and Sarah Wigglesworth, and well-known critics and architectural writers, such as Tom Dyckhoff, William Menking and Thomas Weaver. Many of the contributors are former students of Adrian Forty. Through these diverse essays, readers are encouraged to think about how architectural history and theory relates to their own research and design practices, thus using the work of Adrian Forty as a catalyst for fresh and innovative thinking about architecture as a subject.
Dean/Wolf Architects PRINCETON ARCHITECTURAL PRESS

New York City-based Dean/Wolf Architects have been praised for their uncanny ability to turn architectural constraints into powerful generators of form. Since founding their firm in 1991, architects Kathryn Dean and Charles Wolf have completed residential and institutional projects at a variety of scales. Their projects are distinguished by a thought-provoking manipulation of light and space. The firm's award-winning loft interiors are small-scale wonders precisely crafted from sensuous materials such as concrete, steel, wood, and glass. The Dean/Wolf firm activates these highly resonant materials with deliberately focused light in order to dissolve boundaries of interior and exterior space. For Dean/Wolf, this requires not only a consideration of physical space, but also a psychological engagement between the clients minds and the space they inhabit. Versed in architectural thought and theory, the firm finds aesthetic applications for their investigations into the nature of spatial perception. The architecture that emergesa mixture of unexpected exterior views and areas for quiet reflectioncelebrates both the outgoing and introspective sides of the inhabitants. The firm's 2007 AIA Honor Award-winning Operable Boundary Townhouse Garden in Brooklyn is one such example. Inside and outside are integrated vis--vis a giant, pivoting, steel-framed glass wall and a continuous thirty-foot-long table piercing the wall. With company, the glass wall can be pushed aside allowing the back garden to become an extension of the interior living room. The work of Dean/Wolf Architects is bursting with similar exquisite details and Dean/Wolf Architects showcases twenty-four projects in detail with photographs, drawings, and renderings as well as an introduction by architect Robert McCarter.
New Retail Phaidon Press Ltd
In the decades since the advent of the shopping mall, shopping has become synonymous with entertainment and the retail store a key player in establishing brand identity. In a growing trend, high-profile architects are designing provocative storefronts and interiors that create an aura of exclusivity, draw in customers, and attract media attention rivaling the goods within. New Retail examines this phenomenon with an overview of 24 of the most innovative retail spaces built around the world in recent years, designed by high-profile international architects as well as smaller cutting-edge firms. Projects in the book include the Carlos Miele store in New York (Asymptote), three stores for Louis Vuitton in New York and Tokyo (Jun Aoki), Selfridges in Birmingham, the UK (Future Systems), two clothing boutiques in Sao Paulo (Isay Weinfeld), the Mandarina Duck store in Paris (NL Architects), and the Mpries Supermarket in Austria (Dominique Perrault), among others. More than 250 color photographs as well as floor plans and site plans showcase the architectural and interior design, lighting, and often experimental materials that create these ultimate retail spaces. For the Selfridges department store, for example, Future Systems clad the building with 15,000 aluminum disks attached to a sprayed concrete surface. In New York, the interior of the Carlos Miele store by Asymptote features a sensual, sculptural white ceiling of molded high-gloss PVC-based material. Each project is accompanied by a 500-to-700-word description that explains the design concept, site, program, and significant building technologies and materials. A general introduction discusses precedents to these projects and current issues in the architecture and design of retail spaces.
The JDO Persistence Model GRIN Verlag
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject Computer Science - Programming, grade: 1,3, University of Potsdam, course: Seminar Systemmodeling, language: English, abstract: JDO is a specification for design object domain models without having to consider the persistency of data. The main target of JDO is the abstraction of concrete data storage solutions and the provision of transparent and implementation-independent solutions for persistent data. Starting with an introduction to the architectural model of Java Data Objects, benefits of this approach and the realization by a tool-based enhancement are outlined. Furthermore, the API itself is in focus of examination, main programming interfaces and the JDO-QL will be discussed. Finally, it is aimed to give an outlook on the up-coming JDO 2.0 specification.
