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.

King, Andrew (editor); Belisle, Jocelyne (editor); Eisler, Lawrence (editor)
This book discusses changing ideas about the nature and function of the city as an essential cultural network, one that each of its inhabitants participates in, whether consciously or unconsciously. The city acts as a backdrop to everyday life and influences the ways in which individuals interact with a greater cultural community. How would life be different for us as individuals if we lived in a different kind of city? What interventions can be made at an architectural level to make our city a more engaging place to live? In this theoretical discussion and visual display of urbanism, vital connections are made between modernism as an international movement and its manifestations in Canadian architecture. With contributions from experts in diverse fields of inquiry, the book offers a discussion of the dynamic relationship between form and culture in word and picture. 170pp. N.B. Front cover slightly marked.

de Bruyn, Gerd
This work contains text in English and German. In the summer 1978, the cover of the magazine "Bauwelt" showed a photograph of an unusual building. It was tersely introduced to readers as a 'private house with office in Bad Nauheim', but it was immediately obvious that this was a built manifesto. What appeared was a strictly symmetrically articulated, steeply rising facade, emanating dignity and composure. It also seemed able to manage without windows, which further enhanced its austere elegance. And then there were the strikingly slender, sharp-angled wall elements, which seemed captivatingly graceful, or even delicate and fragile - as though folded from paper. The fact is that, long before Gilles Deleuze had cast his spell on a new generation of aesthetically ambitious architects, Johannes Peter Holzinger was putting his folding skills into practice as a matter of course. 59pp.
