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.

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.
