MINKA 1955 | JAPANESE TRADITIONAL HOUSES
NZD$75 - SOLD OUT

ISBN:978-487-140-4921
Date of Edition: 2012
Pages: 144

Text: English/Japanese




Born from his fascination with ancient architecture and a personal rediscovery of its beauty through materials such as wood, stone, earth and thatch, the aspiring architecture student Yukio Futagawa set out in the mid-1950s to photograph ‘minka’, the traditional rural houses of Japan. This experience would be instrumental in shifting his life’s work toward photographing rather than creating architecture. This large-format compendium of Futagawa’s images of villages and homes captures not only the sequence of history but also the essence of Japanese culture at a time when much of the country remained agrarian, not yet subjected to more recent, rapid modernisation.

A+U SPECIAL | VISIONS OF THE REAL I
NZD$155 - SOLD OUT




-------------------

ISBN:978-490-021-1520
Date of Edition: 2000
Pages: 284
Size: 21.5 x 29.2cm
Publisher: Japan Architect
Text: English/Japanese



A superbly executed special edition in two volumes, published and sold separately, Visions of the Real surpasses similar histories recently published. It exposes the complex social, technical and artistic problems of house design in the 20th Century - from drawings, to built reality, realised inhabitation, and evolution over time. Original drawings presented together with brand new photographs reveal exactly to what extent the initial vision has endured. Some of the 30 works featured are familiar modern masterpieces, but several have remained relatively unknown until recently. Many are still inhabited as originally designed and all remain visionary, transcending the time of their making.

TAUBA AUERBACH | FOLDS
NZD$185 - IN STOCK

Size: 22 x 29cm
Publisher: Sternberg Press
Text: English



Folds presents Auerbach’s eponymous painting series for the first time in book form. In these paintings Auerbach twists and folds the canvas before applying the paint. In its stretched form the flat canvas conjures a trompe l’oeil rendering of its previous three-dimensional state. Transferred to the medium of the book, the paintings are presented here in a new and unexpected way alongside mathematical diagrams and three texts. Auerbach works with a number of printed media, and the book enjoys a quite central position in her oeuvre. A rare opportunity to own this out-of-print publication.

The workshop of Studio Mumbai, headed by Bijoy Jain, consists of open air spaces in a rustic setting surrounded by trees. There, a variety of skilled craftsmen, architects and engineers collaborate in the same space, engaging in, exercising and practicing architecture in a manner that aspires to transcend its own physicality. In this way, the process and act of communication has come to characterise the studio, its creative process and its output. An intimate look at the workings, outlook and inspiration of the practice is given, which includes the story of its background and setting, along with an interview with Jain and detailed profiles of significant projects in India: Tara House, Leti 360 Resort, House on Pali Hill and the Copper House, to name a few.

WILDER QUARTERLY | FALL 2012
NZD$35 - INSTOCK




-------------------

The 2012 Fall issue of Wilder Quarterly celebrates the bounty of fall with a trip to Finland to forage for mushrooms and wild edibles. We travel to Mexico City's Butterfly Biosphere––a UNESCO World Heritage Site––and peek an exclusive view Kyoto's majestic Moss Temple. A visit to James Beard award winner Chef Sean Brock schools us on the doctrine of good dirt and the original Catwoman Julie Newmar shows us how her garden grows. Spooky tales of the forest come to life as we search for the mythic will-o-the-wisp and our vision gets crystalized in the off-limits American Museum of Natural History's geodes vault. To top it off, we’ll learn the virtues of aquaponics, get lessons in seed saving and try the fine art of ice wine. Bounty, indeed.
