Native American Log Cabins in the Southeast
Southeastern Native American forms of domestic architecture underwent multiple transitions between the mid-eighteenth to early nineteenth centuries. In Native American Log Cabins in the Southeast, Gregory A. Waselkov and ten colleagues track the origins of Native American cabins, structures that incorporated a range of features borrowed from indigenous post-in ground building traditions, Euroamerican horizontal notched-log construction, and elements introduced by Africans and African Americans. Grounded in archaeological investigation, their essays illuminate the distinctive cabin forms developed by various southeastern Native groups, including the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, and Catawba peoples. In a rapidly changing social, economic, and political landscape at the frontiers of an expansionist United States, the log cabin, a northern European house form, proved equally adaptable to the needs of settlers, slaves, and Native peoples. Each found ways to make log cabins their own. Beneath these deceptively simple hewn facades, indigenous principles of correctness guided southeastern Indians' uses of interior cabin space, creations of raised clay hearths, and maintenance of pits that gave occupants access to the regenerative properties of the Beneath World. The chapters in this volume make important contributions toward a better understanding of houses and households in the Native Southeast by marshalling new data, methods, and theory to address an important but understudied phenomenon.

Neocolonialism and Built Heritage: Echoes of Empire in Africa, Asia, and Europe
Architectural relics of nineteenth and twentieth-century colonialism dot cityscapes throughout our globalizing world, just as built traces of colonialism remain embedded within the urban fabric of many European capitals. Neocolonialism and Built Heritage addresses the sustained presence and influence of historic built environments and processes inherited from colonialism within the contemporary lives of cities in Africa, Asia, and Europe. Novel in their focused consideration of ways in which these built environments reinforce neocolonialist connections among former colonies and colonizers, states and international organizations, the volume's case studies engage highly relevant issues such as historic preservation, heritage management, tourism, toponymy, and cultural imperialism. Interrogating the life of the past in the present, authors thus challenge readers to consider the roles played by a diversity of historic built environments in the ongoing asymmetrical balance of power and unequal distribution capital around the globe. They present buildings' maintenance, management, reuse, and (re)interpretation, and in so doing they raise important questions, the ramifications of which transcend the specifics of the individual sites and architectural histories they present.

The American Museum of Natural History and How It Got That Way
The American Museum of Natural History is one of New York City's most beloved institutions, and one of the largest, most celebrated museums in the world. Since 1869, generations of New Yorkers and tourists of all ages have been educated and entertained here. Located across from Central Park, the sprawling structure, spanning four city blocks, is a fascinating conglomeration of many buildings of diverse architectural styles built over a period of 150 years. The first book to tell the history of the museum from the point of view of these buildings, including the planned Gilder Center, The American Museum of Natural History and How It Got That Way contextualizes them within New York and American history and the history of science. Part II, The Heavens in the Attic, is the first detailed history of the Hayden Planetarium, from the museum's earliest astronomy exhibits, to Clyde Fisher and the original planetarium, to Neil deGrasse Tyson and the Rose Center for Earth and Space, and it features a photographic tour through the original Hayden Planetarium. Author Colin Davey spent much of his childhood literally and figuratively lost in the museum's labyrinthine hallways. The museum grew in fits and starts according to the vicissitudes of backroom deals, personal agendas, two world wars, the Great Depression, and the Cold War. Chronicling its evolution-from the selection of a desolate, rocky, hilly, swampy site, known as Manhattan Square to the present day-the book includes some of the most important and colorful characters in the city's history, including the notoriously corrupt and powerful Boss Tweed, Father of New York City Andrew Haswell Green, and twentieth-century powerbroker and master builder Robert Moses; museum presidents Morris K. Jesup, Henry Fairfield Osborn, and Ellen Futter; and American presidents, polar and African explorers, dinosaur hunters, and German rocket scientists. Richly illustrated with period photos, The American Museum of Natural History and How It Got That Way is based on deep archival research and interviews.

Abandoned Palaces
Built to last, built to impress, built with style and grandeur - it is all the more remarkable when the most ostentatious of buildings fall into disrepair and become ruins. From imperial residences and aristocratic estates to hotels and urban mansions, Abandoned Palaces tells the stories behind dilapidated structures from all around the world. From ancient Roman villas to the French colonial hill station in Cambodia that was one of the final refuges of the Khmer Rouge, the book charts the fascinating decline of what were once the homes and holiday resorts of the most wealthy. Ranging from crumbling hotels in the Catskill Mountains or in Mozambique to grand mansions in Taiwan, and from an unfinished Elizabethan summerhouse to a modern megalomaniac's estate too expensive ever to be completed, the reasons for the abandonment of these buildings include politics, bankruptcy, personal tragedies, natural and man-made disasters, as well as changing tastes and fashions. With 150 outstanding colour photographs exploring more than 100 hauntingly beautiful locations, Abandoned Palaces is a brilliant and moving pictorial examination of worlds we have left behind.

Close to Home: Building and Projects of Michael Koch and Associates Architects
The projects featured in Close to Home are within a 15-mile radius of where Louisville architect Michael Koch was born, raised, and has practiced for almost forty years. Educated at the University of Kentucky School of Architecture during the Dean Anthony Eardley era, where he was taught by Guillermo Julian de la Fuente, Peter Carl, Stephen Deger, Judith DeMaio, Clyde Carpenter, and Herb Greene, Koch has created a body of work in the Ohio River Valley that is site-specific and expressive, translating Kentucky's regional idioms into a vibrant modernism. From airy houses that take advantage of Louisville's Olmstead-designed parks and local materials, to structures that are strikingly adapted to the Ohio River floodplain, to church-inspired metropolitan projects, Koch's buildings are a memorable part of the city's landscape. Close to Home presents the award-winning achievements of his firm Michael Koch and Associates Architects, and introduces readers to the simple elegance of his designs and meaningful contributions he has made to the architecture of Kentucky.

The Power of the Plan: Building a University in Historic Columbia, South Carolina
State universities are more than just places of higher learning, more indeed than just campuses or buildings, and more than just students scurrying from class to class. They are a symbol of the future of the nation and a statement about the commitment the sponsoring state has made to its people. In turn each city or town that hosts, develops, and nurtures these institutions recognizes that it holds within the community one of the more precious jewels in a state's crown. So it is with the city of Columbia and the University of South Carolina. Richard F. Galehouse has been involved in the university's master planning work for more than twenty-five years, making him more than qualified to take a lapidary look not only at the present and unfolding plans for the university, but also at the historic path that has brought it to its current luster. Encompassing its earliest days as Columbia College in 1801 (almost two decades before Thomas Jefferson's University of Virginia); the devastating effects of the Civil War; the crisis years between 1861 and 1915, when the institution was closed twice and reorganized five times; and some bungled urban planning in the 1950s and 60s, Galehouse's candid examination details the growth of the university and speaks hopefully about its present and its future. The city of Columbia and the University of South Carolina are unique in how they were designed to grow together, yet cosmopolitan in how they grapple collectively with the challenges and difficulties of combining the city's needs with the university's to create a symbiotic but nevertheless holistic community. The plan for this meeting of minds and needs is the meat of this narrative. The original and iconic Horseshoe grid of the city is echoed in the Innovista master plan outlined here, which will create in the city a shining setting for the university, one of its own most highly prized treasures. A foreword is provided by Patrick L. Phillips, global chief executive officer of the Urban Land Institute (2009-2018) and an instructor at the Harvard Graduate School of Design Executive Education Program and at the Carey Business School at Johns Hopkins University.

Collett-Zarzycki: The Tailored Home
Richly illustrated with beautiful photographs and drawings, Collett-Zarzycki: The Tailored Home provides a thoughtful and comprehensive account of how this atelier has built an extraordinary portfolio of residential work over the last 30 years. From London town houses to Tuscan retreats to new build vacation homes on the French Riviera, Collett-Zarzycki's work encompasses architecture, interiors and landscape design, with an emphasis on refined spaces, crafted materials and bespoke furniture. This rare capacity to span the entire spectrum of design has given rise to homes of great cohesion and charm, as well as originality and individuality. With backgrounds in the art world and engineering, as well as formative years in both Africa and the UK, Anthony Collett and Andrzej Zarzycki bring a wealth of experience to bear upon projects that are defined by their unique sense of character, developed in response to site, setting and the considered needs of their clients. Whether the commission is for a penthouse interior, a town house reinvention, or a new build country or coastal home, there are common themes to their work, with an emphasis on craft, materiality, attention to detail and timeless elegance, fusing contemporary living with Neoclassical, Arts & Crafts and Modernist influences. The book offers insights into the influences and inspiration behind the firm's work, into founding partners Collett and Zarzycki's unique collaborative working practices, their ability to work across a range of forms and scales and their use of contemporary artisan craftsmen in the bespoke fixtures, fittings and furniture which are integral to many of their projects.

The Decorated Tenement: How Immigrant Builders and Architects Transformed the Slum in the Gilded Age
A reexamination of working-class architecture in late nineteenth-century urban America As the multifamily building type that often symbolized urban squalor, tenements are familiar but poorly understood, frequently recognized only in terms of the housing reform movement embraced by the American-born elite in the late nineteenth century. This book reexamines urban America's tenement buildings of this period, centering on the immigrant neighborhoods of New York and Boston. Zachary J. Violette focuses on what he calls the decorated tenement, a wave of new buildings constructed by immigrant builders and architects who remade the slum landscapes of the Lower East Side of Manhattan and the North and West Ends of Boston in the late nineteenth century. These buildings' highly ornamental facades became the target of predominantly upper-class and Anglo-Saxon housing reformers, who viewed the facades as garish wrappings that often hid what they assumed were exploitative and brutal living conditions. Drawing on research and fieldwork of more than three thousand extant tenement buildings, Violette uses ornament as an entry point to reconsider the role of tenement architects and builders (many of whom had deep roots in immigrant communities) in improving housing for the working poor. Utilizing specially commissioned contem-porary photography, and many never-before-published historical images, The Decorated Tenement complicates monolithic notions of architectural taste and housing standards while broadening our understanding of the diversity of cultural and economic positions of those responsible for shaping American architecture and urban landscapes.

Affordable housing is an enduring political challenge. Cities have endeavored to set international standards for this important field of architecture since the 1920s. Planners must work within a socially motivated tradition to find exemplary solutions both at the political and architectural level. This building catalogue documents over 130 residential buildings dedicated to affordable housing. It presents floor plans, large photos, key data, and clear diagrams, providing a comprehensive overview of the solutions being tested today. The publication is rounded off with ten affordable housing concepts that were designed as part of the Housing for All competition, organized by the Frankfurt Department of Planning and Housing, the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, and ABG Frankfurt Holding. Renowned architecture practices based in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and France were invited to submit design concepts for building sites in the Hilgenfeld area of Frankfurt. These concepts will reignite the contemporary discourse on affordable housing - in Frankfurt and beyond.

The stories behind them are many and various - built out of passion, megalomania, showing off one's wealth or to keep up with one's neighbours or, in contrast, delicate artistry and finesse. Many are on well-known estates such as Stourhead and Bowood, but others are rarely seen by the public, tucked away in private grounds to which exclusive access has been gained for this book.

Treasures of Ancient Egypt
Four thousand years before the birth of Christ, ancient Egypt was the cradle of modern civilization. Powerful pharaohs built great cities on the fertile banks of the Nile, and employed thousands of labourers to create lavish tombs and temples such as Thebes and the pyramids of the Giza plateau. Today the exceptional beauty and scale of ancient Egypt's antiquities is legendary and draws millions of visitors to Egypt's museums and monuments each year. Treasures of Ancient Egypt is a celebration of these wonders, from Tutankhamun's tomb to the pyramids, from ancient papyrus scrolls covered with hieroglyphs to golden amulets in the form of ankhs and scarabs. Featuring 160 colour photographs, Treasures of Ancient Egypt tells the stories of the pyramids, the Sphinx, the Valley of the Kings, and the artefacts that have been found there. From necklaces to mummies, from wall paintings to statues, this is a fascinating, highly colourful exploration of a mighty ancient civilization.

Founded in 2013 by renowned Mexican artist Bosco Sodi, it combines artist residencies, a gallery, and living quarters with classrooms, gardens, and public space. Tadao Ando centers the foundation on a 312-meter-long wall; his trademark concrete structures radiate off it, capped in woven palm tree leaves for ventilation. These local palapa-style roofs are often the only element distinguishing indoor and outdoor spaces, an effect complemented by wooden shutters in place of paned glass windows. Other unusual native building materials include Mexican parota wood and marmolina. Led by director Carla Sodi, Casa Wabi challenges architects and artists to contemplate nature deeply, as it provides new tools for area residents. Casa Wabi is both a world-class architectural destination and a model for new strategies of creative intervention within economically depressed communities.

Digital Quality Management in Construction
Much has been written about Building Information Modelling (BIM) driving collaboration and innovation, but how will future quality managers and engineers develop digital capabilities in augmented and video realities, with business intelligence platforms, robots, new materials, artificial intelligence, blockchains, drones, laser scanning, data trusts, 3D printing and many other types of technological advances in construction? These emerging technologies are potential game changers that require new skills and processes. Digital Quality Management in Construction is the first `how to' book on harnessing novel disruptive technology in construction quality management.

Pseudo-Public Spaces in Chinese Shopping Malls: Rise, Publicness and Consequences
Shopping malls in China create a new pseudo-public urban space which is under the control of private or quasi-public power structure. As they are open for public use, mediated by the co-mingling of private property rights and public meanings of urban space, the rise, publicness and consequences of the boom in the construction of shopping malls raises major questions in spatial political economy and magnifies existing theoretical debates between the natural and conventional schools of property rights. In examining these issues this book develops a theoretical framework starting with a critique of the socio-spatial debate between two influential bodies of work represented by the work of Henri Lefebvre and David Harvey. Drawing on the framework, the book examines why pseudo-public spaces have been growing so rapidly in China since the 1980s; assesses to what degree pseudo-public spaces are public, and how they affect the publicness of Chinese cities; and explores the consequences of their rise. Findings of this book provide insights that can help to better understand Chinese urbanism and also have the potential to inform urban policy in China. This book will be of interest to academics and researchers in both Chinese studies and urban studies.

Signs of the Times: Reading's memorials
Which memorial's unveiling were the public barred from, so that no disruption could be caused by suffragettes? Why is a Danish prisoner of war remembered in Reading? Who was Goldwin Smith, whose birthplace is marked by a plaque on Friar Street? Did the sculptor responsible for the lion in the Forbury really commit suicide because of it? How many times did Queen Victoria visit Reading, and did she like her statue? The stories behind Reading's memorials bring the people and events of Reading's past to life. This book describes aspects of the town's history by considering some of its - often not well known - plaques, statues and monuments. Even the better known memorials have secrets to yield in the tales of their origins. With descriptions of where the memorials can be found, along with photographs to help identification, the book reveals vivid glimpses of life in Victorian Reading, and reminds us of the physical, as well as social legacy, our forebears left behind them.

The Argyle of San Antonio
The stately mansion known as the Argyle has a past as storied and fascinating as the Lone Star State itself. From its origins as a home and headquarters of a horse ranch to its transformation into an inn and elegant dining club, and ultimately part of a pathfinding medical research endeavor, the Argyle has been at the center of San Antonio and Texas history since the middle of the nineteenth century. Originally built as a residence in 1860 by Charles Anderson, the Argyle temporarily served as an arsenal for the Confederacy during the Civil War. By the late nineteenth century, siblings Robert and Alice O'Grady operated what became a familiar inn and fine dining establishment for weary travelers and many notable figures, including Gen. John J. Black Jack Pershing. During the Great Depression and World War II, the Argyle fell into disrepair. Betty Moorman, whose brother Tom Slick had founded the nonprofit Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research, rescued the Argyle from the brink of demolition and converted it into a fine dining club whose members would provide financial support for the research institute. Today the Argyle continues to serve and support the mission of the Texas Biomedical Research Institute, making important contributions to understanding and developing treatments for infectious diseases and cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and other common diseases. This book not only contributes to the story of San Antonio's history but is also a treasured and informative keepsake for those who support and continue to benefit from the Argyle and its larger mission.

Lost Blackpool
Like all towns and cities in the UK, Blackpool has changed over the years, and continues to do so. This much-loved seaside resort has developed from just a few houses fronting its 7 miles of `Golden Beach' in the mid- to late 1700s, to what it is today with its famous Tower, three piers, Golden Mile, Illuminations, Comedy Carpet and Pleasure Beach. In the intervening period many attractions along the promenade have come and gone and the whole 7 miles developed with hotels and houses. Lost Blackpool shows the many well-known attractions and buildings - such as the Big Wheel, The Palace, Derby Baths, Yates's and Central station - that are no longer part of the landscape, as well as many of the shops, schools, pubs, cinemas and churches of the `other' Blackpool behind the seafront. Lost Blackpool is a book that will appeal not only to the town's residents but also the many visitors who come here every year to sample its delights.
