Synopses & Reviews
Like many young Dutch architects who have either worked for Rem Koolhaas or followed in his footsteps, Winka Dubbeldam situates architecture in a larger context of urbanism, society, and technology. Her inventive and colorful work addresses a variety of scales and programs, and displays a mastery of the latest computer techniques in rendering and animation. The results are beautifully illustrated in this lavishly produced large-format monograph, the first on her work.
Winka Dubbeldam, Architect presents an impressive selection of this emerging designer's built and unbuilt works through photographs, drawings, computer renderings, and full project descriptions. Among the projects included are the Cristinerose Art Gallery in New York City; an urban design for the Mojave Desert; a competition entry for a port terminal in Yokohama; a redevelopment of the souks in Lebanon; and a redesign of the facade and entry for the Art Academy in Rotterdam. An introduction by Michael Speaks and an essay by Dubbeldam accompany the work.
Dog lovers who haven't raised puppies from birth have missed out on one of the most remarkable and adorable times in a dog's life. From one to twenty-one days old, puppies undergo great changes, from needing their mothers' complete care to opening their eyes and ears to the outside world, growing, stretching their legs, and learning to become the dogs that they are. Author/photographer (and new mother) Traer Scott's love of dogs shines through these intimate images of a range of breeds and types, from champion pups to shelter strays, all of them irresistible. Including an introduction on puppies' development and the importance of their welfare, this delightful book reveals young dogs as they embark on the adventures of growing up.
