PROJECTING BEIRUT: EPISODES IN THE CONSTRUCTION AND RECONSTRUCTION OF A MOD ERN CITY (ARCHITECTURE), Rowe, Peter G.
23 Rowe, Peter G. PROJECTING BEIRUT: EPISODES IN THE CONSTRUCTION AND RECONSTRUCTION OF A MOD ERN CITY (ARCHITECTURE)
Prestel 1998 3791319388 / 9783791319384 Paperback As New 
In original shrinkwrap: "Projecting Beirut: Episodes in the Construction and Reconstruction of a Modern City" deals with two specific periods in urban development in modern Beirut. The first coincides with the government intervention of the late 1950s to the late 1960s, and the second episode is about the increasing private-sector involvement in planning and reconstruction after the civil war, dating from the early 1990s. Beirut is a fascinating example of modern city building, and the authors' insights into its urban redevelopment apply to other places as well. Pressing contemporary issues, such as the resolution and celebration of social pluralism and multiculturalism, as well as historic preservation, conservation and the integration of historic archaeological sites into contemporary urban life are also brought into focus. In Beirut and elsewhere, it is a matter of building upon what is already there, of acknowledging and preserving the past while progressing into the future, and of deciding what constitutes an appropriate urban-architectural heritage. This informative book is divided into six parts which deal with Beirut's urban history and archaeology, modern architecture and modern planning, together with the socio-economic framework for the reconstruction, and the social and political backdrop to which urban projects must respond. A final section summarizes the important issues to be confronted in the present reconstruction of Beirut and its future as a flourishing Mediterranean city. The volume is illustrated throughout with original archival material, including photographs and drawings.

24 Rykwert, Joseph THE SEDUCTION OF PLACE: THE CITY IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. One of the most highly respected architectural historians of our time takes on the question of whether or not we have the cities we need and what we c an do to create them. To understand why people love or hate their cities and why cities succeed o r fail their inhabitants, Joseph Rykwert examines a broad spectrum of urban centers. Among them are Mexico City, the world's largest metropolis, spraw led around its old center; Berlin, newly reunited and furiously rebuilding; New Delhi and Islamabad, new capitals that exist alongside older towns; gr andly planned cities like Chandigarh, Canberra, and Brasília; and more mode st new towns like Columbia, Maryland, and Celebration, Florida, built in an attempt to correct the problems endemic to big cities. Rykwert looks at image, style, and ornament; at public space and buildings; at infrastructure and street layout; at the visual qualities of contrast, strife, and energy that contribute to a city's appeal. Discussing both successes and failures, he suggests ways in which we can retain--or return to--the sense of place and individuation that determines the nourishing character and soul of the urban landscape.
