Afritecture: Building Social ChangeAfritecture: Building Social Change

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Andres Lepik.

Where a term like "Western architecture" is likely to conjure a gamut of specific examples ranging from the Colosseum to the Empire State Building, "African architecture"-whether ancient or modern-still connotes very little for a general audience in the West. Happily, this is changing, as Africa's recent economic boom is transforming the urban landscape across the continent, and yielding a rich new crop of architects and buildings with a range of approaches and solutions as diverse as Africa itself. This opulently illustrated volume, with informative texts by the architectural historian Andres Lepik and documentation of models and maps, examines a broad range of examples of contemporary architecture in Africa. The selection is confined to countries south of the Sahara, such as Burkina Faso, Rwanda and South Africa, where the transformation of the architectural landscape has been particularly pronounced and remarkable in recent years. Throughout, references to the hallmarks and principles of Western historical architecture are notable; but equally striking is the innovative use of local materials and often minimal resources. Very little has been published on contemporary African architecture, making this substantial volume an important and pioneering publication.

A House by Toshiko Mori

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Andres Lepik, Toshiko Mori, Colm Tóibín. Photographs by Iwan Baan.

Cloudline is a unique building designed by New York-based architect Toshiko Mori in collaboration with gallerists Sean and Mary Kelly, and situated on the slopes of the Hudson River. Works by Joseph Beuys, Jannis Kounellis, Juan Munoz and Ian Hamilton Finlay escort the visitor into a space that, with its aluminum-framed panoramic windows and its plain concrete floors, serves as the perfect minimalist canvas for the art within. Nearly a dozen of the artists whose works are featured in the site have created new works especially for this publication. Also included here is an essay by the novelist Colm Tóibín, in which he describes the collection, meditating on works by artists such as Marina Abramovic, Los Carpinteros, James Casebere, Iran do Espírito Santa, Antony Gormley, Laurent Grasso, Callum Innes, Joseph Kosuth, Wolfgang Laib, Peter Liversidge and Anthony McCall.

“I am an artist whose profession is architecture,” writes the renowned Berlin–based Israeli architect Zvi Hecker (born 1931). Sketches is a compilation of Hecker’s architectural drawings that stand alone as works of art while illuminating master works such as the Spiral Apartment Complex, the Heinz-Galinski-Schule Berlin and the Mountains Housing Project.

Candide No. 6: Journal for Architectural KnowledgeCandide No. 6: Journal for Architectural Knowledge

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Andres Lepik, Susanne Schindler, Axel Sowa.

Published twice a year, Candide is dedicated to exploring the culture of knowledge specific to architecture. Like Voltaire’s fictional character Candide, who traveled the eighteenth-century world on an eager if often thwarted search for knowledge, the journal’s editors have embarked on a twenty-first-century quest for architectural knowledge. How is architectural knowledge generated, collected, presented and passed on? Which forms of architectural knowledge can be observed? How can knowledge generated in reference to a specific task be applied to other contexts? Which techniques, tools, and methods are instrumental? To do justice to the many ways of approaching research, each edition of Candide is divided into five sections. “Analysis” investigates building types, looking for the knowledge invested in them; “Essay” offers space for a personal exploration of one of the grand themes of architecture; “Project” serves as a forum for practicing architects and their works; “Encounter” highlights famous or unjustly forgotten architects; and “Fiction” draws on architecture’s imaginative dimension, inviting more speculative writing.

Architecture That Helps

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Andres Lepik. Text by Regina Bittner, Carson Chan, Luis Fernández-Galiano, Ronald Rael, Anne Schmedding, Christian Welzbacher.

As living conditions among the world’s poor continue to decline, with more and more people occupying slums and shantytowns, architects and artists are attempting to apply new models of collaboration and sustainability to social crisis. Moderators of Change: Architecture That Helps showcases 20 international projects by architects, designers and artists that provide socially responsible models of urban design. By inviting users to collaborate in the design and building process, and by working with new economic models, these practitioners have realized projects that have had profound, positive effects with just a minimum investment of money and materials. Moderators of Change includes schools, libraries, gardens, conversions and art projects, as well as essays by Regina Bittner, Carson Chan, Luis Fernández-Galiano, Ronald Rael, Anne Schmedding and Christian Welzbacher.

Idea and Reality

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Andres Janser. Texts by Karin Gimmi, Andres Janser, Andres Lepik, Clifford A. Pearson, Eric Schuldenfrei, Martino Stierli, Marisa Yiu.

Did you know that around half of the world’s extant highrise structures were erected only within the past ten years? Highrise: Idea and Reality offers a comprehensive examination of the highrise phenomenon and its surprisingly recent international ubiquity. A wide range of contemporary highrises are explored in their broadest cultural and civic contexts--contexts which can vary greatly from continent to continent, and from culture to culture--illuminating not only the effects of these imposing buildings upon their immediate landscapes, but also the everyday lives of their inhabitants. Alongside a wealth of photographic documentation, essays by architectural scholars and journalists Karin Gimmi, Andres Janser, Andres Lepik, Clifford A. Pearson, Eric Schuldenfrei, Martino Stierli and Marisa Yiu offer theoretical elaborations on the function of the highrise and its symbolic power as the signature structure of the modern city.

Ai Weiwei: Art, ArchitectureAi Weiwei: Art, Architecture

Published by Kunsthaus Bregenz.
Edited by Yilmaz Dziewior. Foreword by Yilmaz Dziewior. Text by Andres Lepik, Reto Geiser.

Since constructing his own studio in 1999, the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has designed or collaborated with other architects on a wide range of architectural projects. These collaborations were the subject of Ai Weiwei: Art/Architecture, a 2011 exhibition at the Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria, which this catalogue accompanies. A highlight of this overview is the widely celebrated “Bird’s Nest” Beijing National Stadium, a collaboration between Ai and the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron that was constructed for the 2008 Olympic Games. Another feature is a new work based on a project titled “Ordos 10” for which Ai invited 100 young architectural firms worldwide to design single-family houses for Ordos City in Inner Mongolia. An essay in the catalogue examines the role of architecture in relation to Ai’s political activities, an issue of particular relevance since his arrest and conditional release in 2011.

Reinvigorating Seville's central medieval district, J. Mayer H. Architects has created Metropol Parasol. The building complex derives its name from its large, umbrella-like structures and houses an archeological museum, indoor market and elevated square for events. With bars, restaurants and a panoramic pedestrian walkway, the landmark signals an important step forward in the city's development of cultural and commercial facilities.

Raimund Abraham & The Austrian Cultural Forum New YorkRaimund Abraham & The Austrian Cultural Forum New York

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Andreas Stadler, Andres Lepik, Text by Lebbeus Woods, Kenneth Frampton.

Architectural historian Kenneth Frampton called the Austrian Cultural Forum, designed by Austrian architect and theorist Raimund Abraham (1933-2010), the most spectacular modern structure built in New York since the Seagram Building and the Guggenheim Museum. With a width of just seven and a half meters and a depth of 25 meters, the 24-story tower fits perfectly into Manhattan's 52nd Street, with its symmetrical glass façade. Despite or because of the exceedingly restrictive conditions of the location, Abraham succeeded in producing extraordinary stylistic elements while meeting utilitarian criteria ("my intention with the building was to resolve the extreme condition of smallness of the site, its void, its lateral compression," he later wrote). The first publication devoted solely to this architectural marvel, Raimund Abraham & The Austrian Cultural Forum New York features contributions on a range of political, historical and aesthetic issues related to the building and its creator.

Small Scale, Big ChangeSmall Scale, Big Change

New Architectures of Social Engagement

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Introduction by Barry Bergdoll. Text by Andres Lepik.

The role of the global architect in society is changing. Instead of waiting for commissions to come their way, architects are initiating and developing practical solutions in response to dramatically changing living conditions in many parts of the world today. Small Scale, Big Change focuses on a central chapter of this shift, presenting recently built or under-construction works in underserved communities around the globe by these 11 architects and firms: Elemental (Chilean); Anna Heringer (Austrian); Diébédo Francis Kéré (Burkinabé); Hashim Sarkis A.L.U.D. (Lebanese); Jorge Mario Jáuregui (Brazilian); Frédéric Druot, Anne Lacaton & Jean Philippe Vassal (French); Michael Maltzan Architecture (American); Noero Wolff Architects (South African); Rural Studio (American); Estudio Teddy Cruz (American, born Guatemala); and Urban Think Tank (American/Austrian/Venezuelan). Without sacrificing concern for aesthetics, these architects have developed projects that reveal a post-utopian specificity of place; their architectural solutions emerge from close collaboration with future users and sustained research into local conditions. The projects--which include schools, parks, housing and infrastructural interventions--reveal an exciting change in the longstanding dialogue between architecture and society, as the architect's roles, methods, approaches and responsibilities are dramatically reevaluated. They also offer an expanded definition of sustainability that moves beyond experimentation with new materials and technologies to encompass larger concepts of social and economic sustainability. Small Scale, Big Change examines the evolving standards of responsibility and participation in architecture and the ways in which architects can engage critically with larger social, economic and political issues currently facing communities around the world.

J. Mayer H.J. Mayer H.

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Henry Urbach, Cristina Steingräber. Text by Henry Urbach, Andreas Ruby, Ilka Ruby, Andres Lepik, John Ricco, Rolf Fehlbaum.

The members of J. Mayer H. Architects, founded in Berlin in 1996 by Jürgen Mayer, have already won a number of awards for their extraordinary work--for example, their very first building won the Mies van der Rohe Emerging Architect Prize in 2003. Their structures bulge and pop inorganically in a style that aims to go, as Mayer puts it, "beyond the blob." In recent years the firm has created a furor with attention-getting buildings such as the new commons for the Universität Karlsruhe, the ADA 1 offices in Hamburg and the Metropol Parasol, a gigantic structure for the marketplace in the heart of old Seville. Edited by Henry Urbach, this is the first book to present J. Mayer H. Architects' entire oeuvre, tracking the firm's constructions from the research stage through design to project development and culminating in the actual building itself.

Using an analogue camera and diffuse natural light, this Berlin-based photographer specializes in images of defamiliarized architecture. When she was awarded residencies in Brussels and Rotterdam in 2006 and 2007, she developed a photographic project that addressed these cities, as well as Berlin, a third source of inspiration.

Reflect: Barkow Leibinger Architects Building in the Digital Media City, Seoul, KoreaReflect: Barkow Leibinger Architects Building in the Digital Media City, Seoul, Korea

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Andres Lepik. Text by Barry Bergdoll, Brett Steele. Photographs by Christian Richters, Corinne Rose.

How might an architect design a building whose context hasn't yet been determined? Digital Media City is a new urban quarter in Seoul, zoned to grow up between the airport and the city center. But it's still on the drawing board: the site for the Barkow Leibinger project documented here was a lone parcel of land diagonally across from a new park. Given their uncertainty about neighboring structures, Frank Barkow and Regine Leibinger equipped theirs with the ability to kaleidoscopically reflect its surroundings--whatever they turn out to be--in a dimensional, folded glass façade. Reflect documents the process of this building's design and construction through texts, photographs and video stills. Work was completed in late 2006; the result is a versatile face in the midst of facelessness.

O. M. Ungers: Cosmos of ArchitectureO. M. Ungers: Cosmos of Architecture

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Oliver Elser, Andres Lepik. Text by Martin Kieren, Wilfried Kühn, Andres Lepik, Wallis Miller, Stephanie Tasch.

Oswald Mathias Ungers (born in 1926) is one of Germany's most influential architects and one of the twentieth century's most important architectural theorists. He argues that his field thrives in close relationship to the visual arts: "Art and architecture have the same roots, are inscribed with the same codes and systems. Separating them would mean destroying their value, eradicating them." His built work, particularly museum buildings in cities like Hamburg and Cologne, always embodies Ungers' emphatic commitment to architecture as pure art. Cosmos of Architecture features work from Ungers' art collection, his architectural models, finished buildings and library, investigating connections among them.

Mies In BerlinMies In Berlin

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Terence Riley. Contributions by Mies van der Rohe. Text by Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani, Barry Bergdoll, Rosemarie Haag Bletter, Andres Lepik, Jan Maruhn, Detlef Mertins, Wallis Miller, Fritz Neumeyer, Wolf Tegethoff.

Now in Paperback Winner of the Society of Architectural Historians 2002 Philip Johnson Award for Excellence This in-depth look at Mies van der Rohe's early career is the first to examine the architect's work in Europe in terms of its specific historical and cultural contexts, rather than the more formal arguments of the International Style. While earlier studies have described a fundamental break between Mies's neoclassical work prior to 1919 and the more avant-garde work of the 1920s, recent research demonstrates that the transformation was much more gradual. Here 11 scholars and architectural historians explore particular aspects of Mies's work, together shedding new light on the continual interplay of tradition and innovation, nature and abstraction, in the evolution of his design theories and methods. With a wealth of photographs and drawings, many not previously published, this book conveys the dynamic intellectual ferment of this formative period in the life of one of architecture's towering figures. This volume is published to accompany a groundbreaking 2001 exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Rethinking: Space, Time, ArchitectureRethinking: Space, Time, Architecture

Published by Jovis/SMPK, BDA.
Essays by Barbara Steiner, Brian Hatton, Hubertus von Ameluxen and Andres Lepik.

If the dialogue and exchange between the two disciplines of art and architecture has always been an enriching and inspiring one, it has also been one in which borders have been transgressed and tensions have arisen. Rethinking: Space, Time, Architecture invites all concerned parties to reconsider the possibilities for productive cooperation between the two art forms. Spaces in the middle of Berlin are offered up as venues to be used during the UIA Architecture Congress (Summer 2002), spaces in which light installations, material collages, and video art will interact with rooms, construction sites, interior yards, and architecture. Artists Julian Opie, Cida de Aragao, Les Schliesser, and others will cooperate with well-known architects, referencing mass mobility, urbanization, and privatization of the public sphere.
