This book presents in visual and literary form an astonishing record of the hopes and aspirations, fears and concerns, of South Africans in this extraordinary decade through the eyes of the country's artists. Illustrated throughout in full color, this beautifully designed work consists of eleven essays by distinguished commentators on the major acquisitions of the gallery together with 150 or so reproductions. It provides a fitting way of reflecting on the changes of the last decade and assessing the extent to which transformation has had an impact on South Africa. 149pp.

Edited By Muso,Ignazio
It is universally recognised that Venice and its lagoon are of such value that they constitute an international public good that must be preserved for humanity as a whole. But such an ambitious task requires a diversified, sustainable set of economic activities, mostly focused on the production of services and non-material goods. This complex issue is analyzed using different approaches, with a discussion of the case of Venice as an example of some of the most relevant problems concerning the relation between the environment and development in the contemporary world: the trade-off between preserving an ecosystem and considering it as an economic resource; the evolution of different urban growth scenarios and the preservation of a physical habitat; the role of immaterial production in urban economic development; the nature of tourism as a sustainable activity, considered from both from the environmental and cultural angles; the institutional aspect of governing a process of sustainable urban development. 269pp.

Pearman, Hugh; Whalley, Andrew
The Eden Project is the largest plant enclosure in the world. Its biomes have captured imaginations worldwide and become the visual trademark of a destination that attracted two million visitors in its first year of opening. The biomes are the work of Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners, a practice with an international portfolio including the Waterloo International Terminal and Berlin Stock Exchange. The practice has won over 100 architectural awards for its projects, which are characterized by structural legibility and integrity. This book tells the story of Eden's conception, design and construction and looks to the future of this ever-evolving project. Its carefully chosen photographs and drawings reveal the virtuosity and sublime beauty of the structures, while an authoritative essay places them in the distinguished tradition of the glasshouse. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine slightly bumped. Slight dent to front D/J. Corners of D/J slightly rubbed.119pp.
