Schultz, Anne-Catrin
At the time San Francisco International Airport opened as Mills Field Municipal Airport of San Francisco in 1927, most of the San Francisco Peninsula was pasture land. Over the years, new terminals and hangars were built to satisfy the demand of increased air traffic. Beginning with a small administration building of residential character including horizontal wood siding and red cedar shingles, the airport advanced to the larger San Francisco Airport Administration Building. After continuous growth, in 2000 the airport was reorganised and expanded into the vast, structurally iconic new International Terminal. The new building acts as a gateway between land and air, offering a recognisable image to arriving and leaving passengers. It is organised over five levels, making it America's first mid-rise terminal. It receives multiple modes of transportation - linking cars, buses, the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system and the internal light-rail system. According to Craig Hartman, design architect with SOM, the terminal is 'founded upon the qualities of light and lightness'. He says of the new roof: 'We conceived of it as a floating, sheltering plane and as a symbol'. The building's position above several lanes of traffic required a 380-foot long span between the central columns - essentially the building is a bridge. Thus the building itself is in a state of lift-off, offering the first step into the air for departure or a transition space for arrival before the traveller really gets back to the ground. The terminal is built on friction-pendulum base insulators that allow it to swing in the event of an earthquake. The roof trusses' shape evokes many possible associations, the rolling Bay Area hills, the wings of airplanes, a bird in flight - all images not unusual inspirations for airport designs, though in this case especially elegantly achieved.Slight fading to d/j spine.

Catherwood, Christopher
Previous owners inscription to ffep.Mass murder, ethnic cleansing, genocide, hatred and rage: all these have taken on new meaning for Americans after the horrors of September 11th 2001. But that infamous day was not one on which the world changed. Rather, it was the day that the USA joined the rest of the world in a struggle far older than most Americans realize. Suddenly, remote spots like Bosnia or Kosovo have become easier to understand, places that have faced death and destruction for centuries. This text explores much of the background to the strife that the globe faces. In particular, Christopher Catherwood shows how religion and national pride, which are supposed to be positive forces, can become perverted ideologies that arouse hatred, slaughter and war. Religion has often been ignored as a vital component in understanding the awakened forces of nationalism. Catherwood not only seeks to correct that imbalance but to empower the reader to comprehend our troubled world. If we understand our history and experiences, and the ways in which they can be manipulated for evil ends, then we are much better placed to solve the problems that grow from them in the present.185pp.
