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.

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.

They are united by a common ambition: to have an impact on the development and transformation of cities and landscape through meaningful designs and significant spaces where the identity of places is the keystone of the design process. Far from being technical, this team prioritises collective knowledge and shared experience. This book brings together twenty three projects that are the product of these shared viewpoints. It offers a chance to wander 'Between the lines' of landscapes and cities with a diversity of contexts, sites and programmes; and so it reveals the world of Atelier Villes & Paysages, which mixes sensitivity and pragmatism, creativity and attention to detail.

In a collection of projects developed during the 1990s, Margaret Helfand Architects argues for an architecture of logic, simplicity, and sensuality. Presented chronologically, nineteen projects ranging from showrooms, residences, academic buildings, parks, and functional objects are examined in photographs and texts along the three axes fundamental to the firm's work: geometry, structure, and materials. Basic materials such as steel, wood, glass, and stone are used with a minimum of transformation, allowing their inherent colors, textures, and structural properties to create visual stimulation. Seen are such diverse works as Vertical House on a Trapezoidal Site, Octagon: Structure and Landscape, and Apartment for Art and Music, as well as the Time Out New York offices, Williamsburg Community Center, and a child development center.

The profile and standing of the architectural profession is undergoing a transformation. Competition from civil engineers and integrated construction companies is on the increase and the market segments are becoming narrower. Buildings alone are insufficient advertising.

The purpose of this handbook is to introduce architects to those fields of marketing and communication design which are particularly relevant to their profession, to help them promote their services more creatively, develop marketing strategies for their everyday needs, and use communication and media more professionally. It presents numerous examples, solutions and strategies and demonstrates how architects can use them to personal advantage.
