    This new book documents an architecture competition staged as part of the Venice Biennial's 7th International Architecture Exhibition. The objective of the competition was to identify and establish a ''map'' of the current condition of architecture and its teaching in schools. Open to students and architects--and only on-line--the instructions for participants were to submit four digital images, illustrating the proposed idea of a city for the third millennium. Almost all of the proposals fall into three overarching categories: first, ''green'' cities responding to environmental issues, second, cities oriented towards the possibilities of new technologies, and third, cities that address the afflictions of global capitalism--refugees, migrants, rising levels of poverty, and new social conflicts. This beautifully designed new book documents the best of the entries, and also includes a CD-ROM.

    Architecturally, Romania was long regarded as one of the most interesting and beautiful countries In Europe. This book documents the systematic destruction of that heritage by the Ceausescu regime, a process of "systematization" intended to destroy the cultural indentity of a nation on a huge scale. The programme, only halted by the regime's downfall at the end of 1989, has meant the almost complete destruction of at least 29 towns, with large-scale demolition underway in another 37. The plan called for rural restructuring involving the razing of more than half Romania's 13,000 villages, and vast areas of Bucharest have been levelled. By the turn of the century the whole nation was to have been housed in towns with virtually nothing remaining from the country's history and its traditional civilization - a social engineering feat never before accomplished in European history. Dinu Giurescu's book records the demolished and threatened buildings - family homes, mansions, churches, civic buildings - and analyzes the phases of the policy of restructuring.

    The Loft, which originally constituted a type of clandestine life, has become a concept applicable to large, renovated spaces, where the existing structure has been incorporated into everyday architecture. Consequently, old factories, storage areas and warehouses are being transformed to create homes and offices, or commercial studios and shops. The original architecture of these spaces is characterized by the use of materials such as concrete, aluminum, marble and wood, with smooth walls and large doors and windows. The decoration in lofts emphasizes simplicity, adaptability and functionality to create open-plan spaces, with separate rooms being formed using folding screens, medium-height walls or simply pieces of furniture. There are currently two trends: constructing new homes in the style of lofts, and recycling and re-using those already built as a further step in the development of sustainable architecture.

    Since its creation in 1996 by Jean-Marc Gaulier, Urbicus has developed 'naturbanity' , a landscape practice as a pertinent means of tackling urban questions and which treats landscape architecture as an 'architecture of the land area' . Surrounded by a multi-disciplinary team, Jean -Marc Gaulier leads land-use planning strategies not to create a body of his own work, but to strive for the preservation, the enhancement and the balanced development of ordinary or iconic landscapes that are entrusted to him. Through prospective study missions and programmes, management plans and landscape plans, urban planning and development, and consulting and assistance to local authorities, the agency approaches the landscape projects in all its states: the rehabilitating of riverside or coastal sites preserving nature from urban or tourist pressure; the development of public spaces to regenerate the town of yesterday or equip the city of tomorrow; projects for towns in renewal or undergoing urban development structured by landscape; infrastructure projects thought of in terms of views landscape, natural and urban garden projects that are the foundation for positive environments. This book 'Landscape Transformations' is a review of projects chosen to illustrate that the landscape, itself at the crossroads of the viable, the liveable and the fair, offers an appropriate way to respond 'sustainably' to the challenges of land-use planning. The diversity of projects shown testifies to the fact that 'landscape architecture' is a pragmatic form of urban planning.
