Roberts-Jones, Philippe
Europe at the end of the 19th century was a time of upheaval and tension, particularly in art and culture. Art nouveau, symbolism and decadent art were an assault on the traditional, and Brussels found itself at the core of these innovations. This book provides a history of this cultural milieu. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine slightly bumped. 279pp.

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.

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.
