How do architects use color? Do they adopt a different strategy or starting point for every project? Do they gradually cultivate individual color palettes, which develop alongside their body of built work? Do they utilize, or are they aware of, the body of theoretical work that underpins the use of color in the past, and forms the basis of most of the color systems commercially available today? Informed by the author’s thirty years in architectural practice and academia, this book investigates, documents and analyzes the work of a number of contemporary architects in order to respond to these questions and provide a clear reference of contemporary color use. The book suggests a holistic approach to the integration of color in architecture; through a series of thematic essays, the text explores and reveals underlying principles in color design and application. Case studies include: AHMM Caruso St John Erich Wiesner and Otto Steidle Gigon/Guyer O’Donnell + Tuomey Sauerbruch Hutton Steven Holl UN Studio. The book provides clear insights into how particular contemporary architects use color confidently and intelligently as an integral part of their design philosophy, in conjunction with their choices of materials and finishes. Offering a stimulating view of the history of color theory, and pragmatic advice to practicing architects, this book will be inspiring to both design professionals and students.

Zur Farbenlehre

Die auf Goethe zurückgehende Farbenlehre ist in diesem Werk enthalten. Der Dichterfürst stellte darin die während vieler Jahre gemachten Überlegungen und Versuche über das Wesen der Farbe dar. Goethe versuchte, das Phänomen Farbe in seiner Gesamtheit, das heißt nicht lediglich einseitig physikalisch oder von einem ästhetischen oder anderen Standpunkt aus, zu erfassen und zu beschreiben. Anerkennung erreichte er aber nur mit dem Abschnitt “Physiologische Farben”, der die Erkenntnisse zur Farbwahrnehmung enthält. Er irrte speziell im Abschnitt “Physische Farben”, der von ihm als Widerlegung der vorwiegend von Isaac Newton stammenden naturwissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse gedacht war. Goethe selbst schätzte die Ergebnisse seiner Forschungen zur Farbe höher ein als die seines gesamten literarischen Schaffens. (Zitat aus wikipedia.de)

Color is the first and most important design choice a garden designer makes. Over the past decade, landscape architects and garden designers have moved away from the more sedate shades commonly found in traditional gardens and have used plants and hardscape to experiment with explosions of color. From the layered and textural colors of Piet Oudolf to the high contrast colors of Tom Stuart Smith, this increased focus on color is a trademark of today’s leading designers. Contemporary Color in the Landscape explores the whole spectrum of color: how we perceive and respond to color, how to design with color, how to manipulate contrast and create intensity with saturation, how to maximize impact by minimizing color, how to find your own personal color combinations, and how color is viewed in nature. In gorgeous, color-drenched photos Andrew Wilson showcases the work of leading garden designers as inspiring examples of the way color is used. Innovative gardens from all over the world help the reader visualize the core color lessons throughout the book. Supported by more than 300 stunning photographs, Contemporary Color in the Landscape integrates cutting-edge designers, their landscapes, color theory, new design ideas, and gorgeous photography into one inspirational, instructional, and must-have guide for design professionals.

F. Scott Fitzgerald: Der große Gatsby, Neuausgabe 2018 || Wir befinden uns an der Ostküste der USA, im Jahr 1922. Es ist die aufregende Zeit der "Roaring Twenties", als in New York Wolkenkratzer aus dem Boden wachsen und die Menschen lebenshungrig den Tanz auf dem Vulkan üben. Auf Long Island lebt man in mondäner Dekadenz, die harten Seiten des Lebens haben hier keinen Platz. Der junge Börsenmakler Nick Carraway bezieht auf der Halbinsel, die New York vorgelagert ist, ein kleines Haus, das er sich mit seinem schmalen Salär gerade noch leisten kann. In der Villa seines Nachbarn werden alle paar Tage monströse Partys mit Hunderten von Gästen gefeiert; der Gastgeber aber, ein gewisser Gatsby, bleibt im Hintergrund. Doch eines Tages steht Gatsby mit seinem riesigen Wagen vor Carraways Häuschen und bittet ihn wenig später um einen merkwürdigen Gefallen ... || Fitzgeralds Kultbuch wurde mehrmals verfilmt, u. a. 1974 mit Robert Redford und 2013 mit Leonardo DiCaprio als Gatsby.

"In this latest volume to emerge from the work of the Feminist Therapy Institute, Ballou, Hill, West, and their contributors have done a powerful job of explicating current themes in feminist therapy practice, with a lovely balance of theory and application. The careful attention to the economic and social demands of the current political climate and their impact on feminist practice is particularly valuable for advancing feminist analysis of the role of psychotherapy in social transformation." --Laura S. Brown, Ph.D. ABPP, Director, Fremont Community Therapy Project Seattle, WA "In the twenty-plus years since the original Handbook of Feminist Therapy was published, members of the Feminist Therapy Institute and other forward-thinking professionals have continued to push and prod-both themselves and mainstream therapists-to examine the underpinnings of the psychotherapy endeavor. In this volume, the editors and contributors present an organized overview of the most up-to-date thinking about feminist therapy and draw attention to the alliance between feminist therapy and multicultural counseling, critical theory, and liberation psychology. Whereas most mainstream therapy models have progressed beyond a view of the therapist as an objective agent, they generally do not provide a model for understanding the therapist's and, for that matter, the client's beliefs, experiences, and world view. The contextual ecological feminist model explicated here articulates a means of examining the contextual and ecological elements of person's worlds. "The authors of this volume have nicely illustrated feminist therapy's key tenets-to illuminate the multiple spheres of influence in clients' lives, to empower clients as well as ameliorate their distress, to appreciate the linkages among sociostructural, cultural and relational influences, and to work for social justice-in well-drawn theoretical explanations and carefully detailed case examples that bring us to the cutting edge of contemporary feminist therapy." --Maryka Biaggio, PhD Psychologist, Consultant, and Writer, Portland, Oregon

Die Arbeit hat sich im letzten Jahrzehnt weiter verändert. Bereits in 50 Jahren werden weniger als 10 Prozent der Bevölkerung ausreichen, um alle Güter und Dienstleistungen bereitzustellen. Die Konsequenzen für die sozialen Sicherungssysteme sind dramatisch, soziale Konlikte scheinen unvermeidlich. Dass "es nicht mehr genug Arbeit für alle geben wird" erkannte Jeremy Rifkin bereits in seinem Weltbesteller Das Ende der Arbeit - und seine Thesen sind heute aktueller denn je. In der Neuausgabe des in 16 Sprachen übersetzten Bestsellers entwickelt Rifkin seine radikalen Vorschläge weiter und zeigt mit gewohntem wirtschaftlichen und politischen Sachverstand, wie wir verhindern können, dass uns die Arbeit ausgeht.
