Millett, Larry
Get ready to discover the great architectural Mecca that is Minneapolis and St. Paul. The first comprehensive, illustrated handbook of its kind, "AIA Guide to the Twin Cities" is the ultimate source to the architectural riches of the metropolitan area. Organised by neighbourhood and featuring a wealth of sites - from the highest point on the Minneapolis skyline to the modest St. Paul bungalow vibrant with historical and architectural significance - this invaluable reference has it all: illuminating entries for more than 3,000 buildings; behind-the-scenes details of the structures and their architects; lively information about local history and regional styles; highlights of important buildings nearly lost in time; sixty easy-to-read maps that pinpoint the location of every structure; dozens of planned walking and driving tours; and, over 1,000 photos that illustrate significant buildings and features. Retired Pioneer Press architecture critic Larry Millett has spent more than two decades researching and exploring the architectural heritage of the Twin Cities. Millett's "AIA Guide to the Twin Cities" is your ticket to the best tour in town.666pp.

Weber, Joseph
Written to introduce students to the built environment, this guide supplies educators with a programme to teach architecture as a unit or as a topic with interdisciplinary connections to social studies, language arts, visual arts, media production, journalism, and more. Explorations of how modern homes and communities have been shaped by such forces as sense of place, historical and cultural connections to buildings, and ethnic traditions lead students to understand the modern man-made world. Rather than encouraging students to passively accept information, this guide encourages investigation through many different activities including carving, researching, drawing, designing, and interviewing. 216pp.

Logue,Mary
They stand at once as silent reminders of time past as well as the hub of our daily lives. They are the focus of activity in every county - the site of political speeches, holiday parades, and community picnics. They are the courthouses of Minnesota's eighty-seven counties. Writes author Mary Logue, "With a clock tower, the courthouse becomes metaphor, literally the ticking heart at the centre of a county." In this beautiful book are photographs celebrating the variety of Minnesota's county courthouses. From the classic Beaux Arts dome atop the Stearns County Courthouse to the unadorned simplicity of the Sibley County Courthouse, this book offers a parade of some of the finest public buildings in the North Star State. Paired with Doug Ohman's photos is an essay by poet and mystery writer Mary Logue that reveals the secrets of these buildings we thought we knew. Together they tell the story of these distinctly American structures, symbols of the ways Minnesotans live under the law - with justice, equality, and fairness. "Courthouses of Minnesota" is the third book in the "Minnesota Byways" series, a sumptuous photographic survey showcasing the state's classic architectural icons and paired with some of the best writers in the state. 128pp.

Betsky, Aaron
Rear cover a little rubbed and marked .Front free endpaper stamped with Phaidon non mint copy stamp.The Drager House is built into a hillside in Berkeley, California, and steps down in section to conform to the changing site condition. Specific elements such as staircases, terraces and loggias are used to join the house and site, as are large corner windows, which the architect has used to frame selected views of trees and sky. It perpetuates what Franklin Israel describes as the tradition started in Los Angeles by Frank Lloyd Wright and R.M. Schindler, of the mitred glass corner and the "exploded box". This book presents Drager House in detail, using original drawings showing the architect's designs in progress, and newly-commissioned photographs, which are accompanied by many black and white photographs illustrating earlier designs by Israel.Slight fading to spine.
