261. Sadler, Simon.
Archigram: architecture without architecture. - Cambridge, The MIT Press, 2005.
In Archigram: Architecture without Architecture, Simon Sadler argues that Archigram's sense of fun takes its place beside the other cultural agitants of the 1960s, originating attitudes and techniques that became standard for architects rethinking social space and building technology. The Archigram style was assembled from the Apollo missions, constructivism, biology, manufacturing, electronics, and popular culture, inspiring an architectural movement -- High Tech -- and influencing the postmodern and deconstructivist trends of the late twentieth century.
262. Arendt, Hannah.
The Human Condition. - Chicago; London, University of Chicago Press, 1998.
A work of striking originality bursting with unexpected insights, "The Human Condition" is in many respects more relevant now than when it first appeared in 1958. In her study of the state of modern humanity, Hannah Arendt considers humankind from the perspective of the actions of which it is capable. The problems Arendt identified then--diminishing human agency and political freedom, the paradox that as human powers increase through technological and humanistic inquiry, we are less equipped to control the consequences of our actions--continue to confront us today.
263. Sharpe, William.
Visions of the Modern City: essays in history, art and literature. - Baltimore; London, Johns Hopkins University Press, 1987.
The relentless pace of urbanization since the industrial revolution has inspired a continuing effort to view, read, and name the modern city. We are now at a point of transition to a new kind of city, write William Sharpe and Leonard Wallock, and thus we are experiencing the same crisis of language felt by observers of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century cities. Visions of the Modern City explores the ways in which artists and writers have struggled to define the city during the past two centuries and opens a new perspective on the urban vision of our time.
264. Ward, Stephen V.
Planning the Twentieth-Century City: the advanced capitalist world. – London, John Wiley&Sons, 2002.
This book reveals the complex interplay of planning ideas and practices between local, national and international levels throughout this century. The book moves from German 'zoning', the aesthetics of grand urban and landscape design from France and the USA, and the utopian English idea of the 'garden city' through to the dynamism of the Asian tiger cities and the environmental ideology of the late 20th century. It creates an international body of knowledge and expertise. With case material from major cities in Western Europe, North America, Australia and Asia, this book charts the changing centres of influence in planning and identifies the cities which will lead the way in the next century.

266. Ndubisi, Forster.
Ecological Planning: a historical and comparative synthesis. – USA, Footprint books, 2002.
Ecological planning is the process of understanding, evaluating, and providing options for the use of landscape to ensure a better fit with human habitation. In this ambitious analysis, Forster Ndubisi provides a succinct historical and comparative account of the various approaches to this process. He then reveals how each of these approaches offers different and uniquely useful perspectives for understanding the dialogue between human and environmental processes.
267. Mumford, Eric.
Defining Urban Design. – USA, Yale University Press, 2009.
Mumford traces how members of the International Congress of Modern Architecture (CIAM), such as Walter Gropius, Josep Lluís Sert, and their American associates, developed the discipline of urban design from the 1940s to the 1960s.
268. Murch, Walter.
In the blink of an eye: a perspective on film editing. - Los-Angeles, Silman-James Press, 2001.
In the Blink of an Eye is celebrated film editor Walter Murch's vivid, multifaceted, thought provoking essay on film editing. Starting with what might be the most basic editing question: Why do cuts work? Murch treats the reader to a wonderful ride through the aesthetics and practical concerns of cutting film. Along the way, he offers his unique insights on such subjects as continuity and discontinuity in editing, dreaming, and reality; criteria for a good cut; the blink of the eye as an emotional cue; digital editing; and much more. In this second edition, Murch reconsiders and completely revises his popular first edition's lengthy meditation on digital editing (which accounts for a third of the book's pages) in light of the technological changes that have taken place in the six years since its publication.
269. Seger, Linda.
Making a good script great. - Los-Angeles, Silman-James Press, 2010.

271. Smith, Elizabeth A. T.
Case Study Houses. – Germany, Taschen, 2013.
The Case Study House program (1945-66) was an exceptional, innovative event in the history of American architecture and remains to this day unique. The program, which concentrated on the Los Angeles area and oversaw the design of 36 prototype homes, sought to make available plans for modern residences that could be easily and cheaply constructed during the postwar building boom. The program's chief motivating force was Arts & Architecture editor John Entenza, a champion of modernism who had all the right connections to attract some of architecture's greatest talents, such as Richard Neutra, Charles and Ray Eames, and Eero Saarinen. Highly experimental, the program generated houses that were designed to re-define the modern home, and thus had a pronounced influence on architecture. With comprehensive documentation, brilliant photographs from the period and, for the houses still in existence, contemporary photos, floor plans and sketches.
272. Marton, Paolo.
Palladio: the complete buildings. - Germany, Taschen, 2008.
Palladianism broke through all cultural stylistic barriers. It spread not only throughout the Neo-Latin nations but held Germany, the Netherlands, Scandinavia and the countries of Eastern Europe in its sway and formed the lineaments of English architecture of the 17th and 18th centuries. Palladio lived in an age which was extremely exciting for the historical development of architecture and his work was an important factor in the evolution from Renaissance to Baroque. This volume offers a thorough introduction to the architecture of Palladio and includes all works which researchers have attributed to him.

Show Your Work!: 10 ways to share your creativity and get discovered. - New York, Workman publishing company, 2014.

277. Pfeiffer, Bruce Brooks.
Frank Lloyd Wright Designs. – New York, David Bateman Ltd, 2011.
The first major presentation in decades of the visionary drawings of the artist-architect and master designer. Frank Lloyd Wright was an architect of vast and unprecedented vision, whose work is not only still admired by the critics and carefully studied by historians but is also widely beloved. Comfortable spaces, humanly scaled, with extraordinary attention to detail-as seen in a range of architectural forms are at the center of Wright’s enduring appeal. This vision and attention is nowhere more evident than in the drawings.
278. Peters, Nils.
Prouve. – Germany, Taschen, 2013.
French architect and designer Jean Prouvé (1901–1984) was one of the most important constructors of the 20th century. Prouvé’s design innovations included cleverly-shaped metal parts for building prefabricated structures; he designed buildings and furniture that could be produced with economy of labor and material and efficiency in use, while maintaining high technical standards and quality materials. His simple and elegant style, while born from the desire for inexpensive production, has become an imitable aesthetic and has earned him a position as one of the century’s most influential designers.
279. Fiell, Charlotte.

280. Shane, David Grahame.
Urban Design Since 1945: a global perspective. - United Kingdom, John Wiley&Sons, 2011.
Urban Design Since 1945: A Global Perspective reviews the emergence of urban design as a global phenomenon. The book opens with the urgent need to rebuild cities and re-house the millions of refugees living in camps and shantytowns at the end of the Second World War. Against this background, the book traces the collapse of the modernist, comprehensive state-planning schemes on both sides of the Iron Curtain as global corporations emerged, concentrating on networks and enclaves. It describes how Latin America and then Asia began a rapid urbanisation process, shifting the global urban centre away from Europe and overturning existing urban design models. This resulted in global megacities of an unprecedented scale, often with large associated shantytowns.
281. Zumthor, Peter.
Thinking Architecture. – Basel, Birkhauser, 2005.
Architecture that is meant to have a sensuous connection to life calls for thinking that goes far beyond form and construction. In his texts, Peter Zumthor articulates what motivates him to design his buildings, which appeal to the visitor's heart and mind in so many different ways and possess a compelling and unmistakable presence and aura. Now in its third edition, this book has been expanded to include two new essays: ""Architecture and Lanscape deals with the relationship between the structure and its surroundings, with the secret of the successful placement and topographical integration of architecture. In ""The Leis Houses,"" Peter Zumthor describes the genesis of two wooden houses in the town of Leis in the Swiss canton of Graubünden, thus thematizing the special challenge of integrating contemporary architecture into a traditional architectural context.
282. De Wit, Saskia.
Dutch Lowlands. – Amsterdam, Sun Architecture, 2009.
The form of the Dutch landscape is no accident, rather it is the result of a transformational process, whereby much is reclaimed land. This process has been in constant evolution since the Middle Ages and has allowed the Netherlands to become an inhabitable, charming and unique cultural landscape. This publication advances the knowledge and understanding of the basic forms that have been instrumental in both achieving this landscape and advancing new landscape designs.

More than 750 illustrations give a broad insight into Hertzberger's 'library' and a stimulating impression of the influences and sources of inspiration of one of the Netherlands' major postwar architects.
285. Hartman, Stefan.
Regions in Transition: designing for adaptivity. - Rotterdam, 010 Publishers, 2011.
With shifting roles among governments and a troubled financial market, Dutch spatial planning is being radically reconfigured, with more and more tasks being tackled at the regional scale. This means that regions will have to shape their own perspectives on how they are to develop spatially. They must create distinguishing narratives that pick up on global trends and local initiatives. Regions in Transition is the fifth publication in the Design and Politics series, an initiative of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment on the interplay between planning, design and politics.
286. Meijsmans, N.A.L. Nancy.

287. Maas, Winy.
Visionary cities. – Rotterdam, NAi Publishers, 2009.
Recognizing that our civic responsibilities towards our environments have drastically increased, Visionary Cities ambitiously sets the agenda for the city of the future. Amid crippling bureaucracies and economic crises, present-day thinking on city design remains woefully inadequate, and this first publication in NAi's Future Cities Series announces 12 civic issues that are in need of transformation through the researches of The Why Factory, a global urban-studies thinktank operated in part by the Delft University of Technology.
288. Boelens, Luuk.
Compact City Extended: outline for future policy, research and design. – Rotterdam, 010 Publishers, 2011.
There has been a Dutch policy on the compact city for almost a quarter of a century now. It has been driven by the four major cities in Randstad Holland which, following the economic crises of the 1970s and the policy of clustered dispersal, found themselves confronted with a massive decrease in middle and higher income groups. At the same time there were new insights into the importance of strong cities in the emerging global network economy. This collection of writings takes stock of the situation and traces a number of contour lines that suggest ways a compact city policy can be meaningful and effective in todays setting.
289. Kolson, Kenneth L.
Big plans: the allure and folly of urban design. – Baltimore, Johns Hopkins University Press, 2001.
Big Plans: The Allure and Folly of Urban Design springs from the idea that human aspirations for the city tend to overstate the role of rationality in public life. Inspired by the architectural and urban criticism of such writers as Lewis Mumford, Jane Jacobs, and John Brinckerhoff Jackson, Kolson adopts a user's perspective on issues of urban design, an approach that highlights both the futility of social engineering and the resilience of the human spirit.

291. Walther, Ingo F.
Marc Chagall, 1887-1985: painting as poetry. - Köln ; New York, Taschen, 2006.
Marc Chagall (1887-1985) epitomized the painter as poet with work that was steeped in mythology and mysticism, portraying colorful dreams and folktales deeply rooted in his Russian Jewish origins.

Краткая история кураторства. – Москва, Ад Маргинем Пресс, 2013.
Ханс Ульрих Обрист формулирует оригинальный взгляд на историю современного искусства последних шестидесяти лет как на революцию, истоком которой стали невиданные раньше типы экспозиционной и музейной практики, породившие принципиально новый контекст как для самого искусства, так и для его восприятия зрителями.
293. Уорхол, Энди.
Философия Энди Уорхола: от А к Б и наоборот. – Москва, Ад Маргинем Пресс, 2014.
Энди Уорхол (1928–1987) – культовый американский художник, режиссер, продюсер, издатель, один из основателей поп-арта. В своей автобиографической «Философии» он делится с читателями мыслями о славе, отношениях, деньгах, сексе, еде, моде, работе, времени, Ню-Йорке и о том, что значит быт современным. В отличие от книг других художников, манифест Уорхола – литературное произведение, в котором размышления об искусстве чередуются с воспоминаниями о детстве, а диалоги с вымышленным Б – с полноценными рассказами от первого лица. Все это делает «Философию» еще одним великим поп-произведением художника, созданным на этот раз с помощью слов, а не красок.
294. Уорхол, Энди.
Америка. – Москва, Ад Маргинем Пресс, 2014.
Энди Уорхол всюду брал с собой фотоаппарат, и его "Америка" - выборка из поразительных кадров, отснятых за 10 лет, - задумана как подобие всей страны с ее странной красотой и ошеломляющей противоречивостью. Исследуя случаи сильнейшей одержимости - в том числе помешательства на имидже и знаменитостях, Уорхол фотографирует рестлеров и политиков, красивых богачей и обездоленных бедняков, Трумэна Капоте со свежими шрамами от подтяжки лица и Мадонну, которая пытается спрятаться за нестандартной для нее прической. Он пишет о своей любимой стране, признается, что жалеет, что не умер, когда его ранили, затрагивает темы коммерционализма, красоты и славы.

297. Бишоп, Клэр.
Радикальная музеология. – Москва, Ад Маргинем Пресс, 2014.
Будущее государственных музеев, способных представлять интересы 99% населения, а не укреплять привилегии меньшинства, никогда еще не было столь мрачным. Или уже было? В ответ на жесткое сокращение государственного финансирования несколько музеев современного искусства разработало убедительные альтернативы мантре "чем больше, тем лучше и богаче". В "Радикальной музеологии" Клэр Бишоп говорит о новом понимании современного в современном искусстве, приводя в пример постоянные экспозиции собраний Музея Ван Аббе в Эйндховене, Музея королевы Софии в Мадриде и Музея современного искуссства Metelkova в Любляне. ."Радикальная музеология" - страстный манифест в защиту понимания современности как метода, а не как периодизации, в задиту важности политизированной репрезентации истории в музеях современного искусства.
298. Сонтаг, Сьюзен.
Заново рождённая. - Москва, Ад Маргинем Пресс, 2013.
«Заново рожденная» – первый том дневников и записных книжек главной нью-йоркской интеллектуалки последней четверти ХХ века. История становления личности (16-летняя Сонтаг «с улицы» напросилась на встречу с Томасом Манном и провела с ним в разговорах целый день в его особняке в Санта-Монике), открытие в себе необычной сексуальности (очень откровенные описания лесбо-вечеринок в 1940-х в Сан-Франциско) – все вместе производит впечатление какого-то странного и завораживающего откровения.
299. Zumthor, Peter.
Atmospheres: architectural environments, surrounding objects. – Basel, Birkhauser, 2006.
What "really constitutes an architectural atmosphere,” Peter Zumthor says, is "this singular density and mood, this feeling of presence, well-being, harmony, beauty ... under whose spell I experience what I otherwise would not experience in precisely this way.” Zumthor’s passion is the creation of buildings that produce this kind of effect, but how can one actually set out to achieve it? In nine short, illustrated chapters framed as a process of self-observation, Peter Zumthor describes what he has on his mind as he sets about creating the atmosphere of his houses. Images of spaces and buildings that affect him are every bit as important as particular pieces of music or books that inspire him. From the composition and "presence” of the materials to the handling of proportions and the effect of light, this poetics of architecture enables the reader to recapitulate what really matters in the process of house design.
300. Мизиано, Виктор.
Пять лекций о кураторстве. – Москва, Ад Маргинем Пресс, 2014.

Деятельность куратора рассматривается в книге в контексте системы искусства, а также через отношение глобальных и локальных художественных процессов.
