Prestel has launched a new short series on the history of architecture focusing on a range of architecture styles: Romanesque, Renaissance, Gothic, Baroque and Contem- porary Architecture. Originally published by Electa in Italian, the books have been trans- lated into English for international release. The series is accessibly written, and gener- ously illustrated on architecture through the ages giving readers the tools they need to grasp the architectural language and build- ing forms of these diverse periods. Each book begins with an introduction and history of the architecture style before go- ing on to illustrate the different sub-styles with project case studies. Contemporary Architecture, by Paolo Favole, goes on to talk about specific architects again relating to projects they have completed. Hence, Richard Rogers’ Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim in Bilboa are used to illustrate their particular methods.


The series talks about aspects of technol- ogy, material and concepts as far at it is rel- evant to the development of the movement and the style. This also includes references to cultural movements and developments. Whilst not covered in detail, this series is a handy reference for designers to gain an understanding of the different styles of architecture through the ages.


Architecture and Space Design Concepts in the 20th Century Egon Schirmbeck/Till Boettger/Christian Hanke DOM Publishers 28,00 EUR paperback ISBN 978-3-86922-180-9


Architecture is, fundamentally, about form- ing space. Each new project confronts the architect with the challenge of designing spaces and translating the design into built reality. Outstanding solutions and unusual approaches to this challenge are therefore a valuable source of inspiration for designers to draw on.


This publication introduces 30 spatial con- cepts by significant 20th-century architects. The individual studies are the result of an extensive survey conducted at the Bauhaus University in Weimar and cover designs by pioneers of Modernism such as Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn, Frank Lloyd Wright and Lud- wig Mies van der Rohe as well as spaces and volumes by contemporary architects, including Rem Koolhaas, Zaha Hadid and Peter Zumthor.


Featuring over 150 images of architectural models beautifully presented in black and white, this is volume twelve of DOM’s Basics series that explores the history and theory of archi- tectural processes. The German architectural publisher’s previous books in the series concentrate on architecture in Berlin and are mostly in German. Books translated into English include ‘Berlin Urban Design: A Brief His- tory’ and ‘Infrastructural Urbanism’.
