All of the fascinating houses showcased in this book by the architecture photographer Massimo Listri reflect the personality of the people living in them, and the creative vivacity of their architects and designers. The book contains a well-reasoned selection of houses from all over the world. Some of these exhale sensations of carefully-considered functionality, like the modern apartments in Italy, others invite you to silent meditation, like the villas in Bali, immersed in a tropical garden with swimming pool, or the quiet houses in China and Japan. Many of these charming residences belong to well-known personalities including fashion designers, actors, writers, international entrepreneurs and therefore express conspicuous wealth. Some may appear definitely kitsch, others are simply superb. Anyone would love to own such a house, even just for a dream holiday.

Although design infuses every object in the material world and gives form to immaterial processes as well, it is only recently that design itself has become the focus of intellectual debate. In Design Discourse, Victor Margolin gathers together a body of new writing in the emerging field of design studies. The contributors argue in different ways for a rethinking of design in light of its cultural significance and its powerful position in today's society.

Networks of Design maps a new methodological territory in design studies, conceived as a field of interdisciplinary inquiry and practice informed by a range of responses to actor network theory. It brings together a rich body of current work by researchers in the social sciences, technology, material culture, cultural geography, information technology, and systems design, and design theory and history. This collection will be invaluable to students and researchers in many areas of design studies and to design practitioners receptive to new and challenging notions of what constitutes the design process. Over ninety essays are thematically organised to address five aspects of the expanded notions of mediation, agency, and collaboration posited by network theory: Ideas, Things, Technology, Texts, and People. The collection also includes an important new essay on rethinking the concept of design by Bruno Latour, one of the most influential figures in the philosophy and sociology of science and technology and a pioneer of actor network theory, and essays deriving from forum discussions involving designers and designer-makers responsive to actor network theory. Rather than an anthology of previously-published essays, Networks of Design presents work in progress on design theory and its applications. It is the outcome of a live and vigorous debate on the possibilities and actualities offered by actor network led conceptualisations of the relationships and processes constituting design. All the essays, many collaborative, derive from papers presented at the international conference of the Design History Society held at University College Falmouth, UK in the Autumn of 2008.

Venedig wird im Allgemeinen mit dem romantischen Bild der von Kanälen durchzogenen mittelalterlichen Stadt verbunden, nicht aber mit dem einer modernen Großstadt. Zahlreiche Großmaßnahmen brachten es in der faschistischen Ära auf eben diesen Weg. Eine entscheidende Rolle bei der baulichen Umsetzung spielte die rationalistische Architektur. Die modernen Bauten, die in dem kurzen Zeitfenster von fünf Jahren zwischen 1933 und 1938 entstanden, legen Zeugnis für den ersten Einbruch der Moderne in Venedig ab. Es wird aufgezeigt, dass die Durchsetzung des Faschismus in Venedig und die Umsetzung der Idee eines Großvenedigs in den 1930er Jahren die Voraussetzungen für die Entstehung der rationalistischen Architektur in der Stadt waren, welche das weite Spektrum der faschistischen Ideologie inhaltlich und formal widerspiegelt.

Let it be said at once that the format of this work is richly handsome: it is atwo-volume boxed set comprising 844 pages and well over 1,000 high-quality illustrations, and itreflects throughout its publisher's conviction that good design is an essential, not superficial,part of bookmaking.Beyond that, it should be emphasized that this work is not another facilecultural tour of modern architecture. It is a serious and original study of the beginnings anddevelopment of modernism in which the pictorial aspects are designed to aid in the communication ofthe author's closely reasoned formulations, rather than to gloss over a lack of substantivecontent.The book is a translation of the third Italian edition, published in 1966. Benevolo, who ison the faculty of architecture in Venice, has earned an international reputation as a historian ofarchitecture and town planning, and his publications embrace the span of time from the Renaissanceto the foreseeable future. One such publication, The Origins of Modern Town Planning (The MIT Press,1967), may be read as a prelude to the present work as well as an independent contribution. Perhapsmore than any other architectural historian in our time, Benevolo has made a determined effort toplace developments in design and planning in their proper social and political settings.Indeed, theauthor argues that the development of the modern movement in architecture was determined, not byaesthetic formalisms, but largely by the social changes that have occurred since about 1760: "Afterthe middle of the eighteenth century, without the continuity of formal activity being in any waybroken, indeed while architectural language seems to be acquiring a particular coherence, therelations between architect and society began to change radically.... New material and spiritualneeds, new ideas and modes of procedure arise both within and beyond the traditional limits, andfinally they run together to form a new architectural synthesis that is completely different fromthe old one. In this way it is possible to explain the birth of modern architecture, which otherwisewould seem completely incomprehensible...."This second volume is concerned with the modern movementproper, from 1914 to 1966. The author emphasizes the unity of the movement, rejecting the usualtreatment that allots to the individual architects separate and unconnected biographicalaccounts.Benevolo remarks at one point, "When one talks about modern architecture one must bear inmind the fact that it implies not only a new range of forms, but also a new way of thinking, whoseconsequences have not yet all been calculated." His main concern is to provide a more exactcalculation of those consequences.
