Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

European emigrs have been changing the face of modern American architecture for decades. Winka Dubbeldam surely belongs to that long list of distinguished practitioners. Working across scalesfrom a New York skyscraper to a rural housethe Dutch-born architect has established herself as one of the most provocative figures in the field by seamlessly integrating function and form, technology and comfort, city and home. Folded glass facades, intelligent building cores, and interactive environments highlight the work of her progressive, process-based studio/laboratory, Archi-Tectonics.

As much resource as monograph, Archi-Tectonics index explores Dubbeldam's intense, research-laden approach to over twenty projects, including the highly acclaimed From HardWare to SoftForm exhibition, Aida Hair Salon, and Gipsy Trail Residence. Incisive essays by Detlef Mertins, Javier Barreiro Cavestany, and Michael Speaks complement lush photographs, informative diagrams, and her compelling designs.

Synopsis:

The comic book universe is adventurous, mystifying, and filled with heroes, villains, and cosplaying Comic-Con attendees. This book by one of Wired magazine's art directors traverses the graphic world through a collection of pie charts, bar graphs, timelines, scatter plots, and more. Super Graphic offers readers a unique look at the intricate and sometimes contradictory storylines that weave their way through comic books, and shares advice for navigating the pages of some of the most popular, longest-running, and best-loved comics and graphic novels out there. From a colorful breakdown of the DC Comics reader demographic to a witty Venn diagram of superhero comic tropes and a Chris Ware sadness scale, this book charts the most arbitrary and monumental characters, moments, and equipment of the wide world of comics.
