Book Summary:

European metropolises like Berlin, Rome, Barcelona, Istanbul or London are fascinating because of the history, the people, and the feeling for life – but especially because of the buildings. Architectural details of all epochs and styles are the focus of this book: the window as the eye of the house, balconies as retreats in the midst of the urban din or stairs as the embodiment of change. Aside from their functions, these details lend a building individuality, provide it with a face and determine its appearance. This volume takes the reader on a journey through the plazas and streets of the most exciting 20 metropolises of Europe, presenting an unusual variety of architectural details. Be it something new, old, beautiful or strange, every city appears in a thoroughly new light.

Book Summary:

Drawing together case studies from all over Europe, this text explores the relationship between the overall idea of the landscape architecture for a site and the design of details. Examining concept sketches and design development drawings in relation to the details of the design, the book offers a more profound understanding of decision making through all stages of the design process. The book includes the study of the choice of materials and techniques of construction, and explores the cultural and symbolic significance of such choices, as well as questions of environmental sustainability. With projects analyzed and evaluated here that have won international acclaim, or have been awarded national prizes, European Landscape Architecture is a core book in the study and understanding of the subject.

Book Summary:

In the midst of Europe’s nineteenth-century industrial revolution, four men embarked on separate journeys to the wondrous Farangestan – a land of fascinating objects, mysterious technologies, heavenly women, and magical spaces. Determined to learn the secret of Farangestan’s advancements, the travelers kept detailed records of their observations. These diaries mapped an aspirational path to progress for curious Iranian audiences who were eager to change the course of history. Two hundred years later, Travels in Farangi Space unpacks these writings to reveal a challenging new interpretation of Iran’s experience of modernity. This book opens the Persian travelers’ long-forgotten suitcases, and analyzes the descriptions contained within to gain insight into Occidentalist perspectives on modern Europe. By carefully tracing the physical and mental journeys of these travelers, the book paints a picture of European architecture that is nothing like what one would expect.

Book Summary:

Europe has always been a continent of cultural diversity, a fact that is particularly reflected in its art and architecture. However, the appearance of European cities is not only shaped by traditional and local building forms, modern European architecture has also added a wide scope of constructional styles. These are influenced in equal terms by regional factors ; such as the multifarious climatic and landscape zones of the continent, and international trends. This volume presents European architecture in all its multitude – from private residences via residential and office complexes up to cultural, educational, research, and religious institutions, and infrastructure projects. Unexpected materials and modern designs are presented along with new interpretations of centuries-old building traditions, while modern building methods focus on highly topical themes such as sustainability, re-use, and recycling methods. The compilation of buildings from such a wide scope of typologies makes the Atlas of European Architecture not only a comprehensive general reference work but primarily also a nearly inexhaustible source of inspiration.

Book Summary:

The nineteen outstanding contributors to this deeply insightful book concur in envisioning a fundamentally new systematic concept of contract law that, while preserving the essential and‘architectureand’ of the existing European codes, would nonetheless find cogent ways to integrate such modern developments as mass transactions, chains and networks of contracts, regulation of markets and contracts to protect consumers, and service and long-term contracts into an optional European code. The book is organised along three major avenues: and• the systematic arrangement of a contract law code - how it deals with core questions of formation and performance or breach of contract, such as mistake and misrepresentation, standard contract terms, and remedies in the case of breach of contract; and• the apparent necessity to merge consumer contract law (i.e. such issues as product safety and liability, warranties, and consumer debt and insolvency) with traditional core contract law concepts; and and• the importance to substantive contract law of the pre-contractual phase, in which information duties are becoming steadily more paramount. The authors perspectives cover a wide range of jurisdictions, including new EU Member States. The bookand’s commitment to an integration of comparative law, EC law, and the debate on European codification offers practitioners and academics fertile ground for the development of a new model of contract law that is more than a common denominator of what has been in force so far. This model may serve as a basis for Europe-wide and perhaps even worldwide discussion.
