These days, a subway is an integral part of a city''s heritage and a key feature of the urban landscape used by passengers. But subways are also full of history and art. They reflect a city''s personality and its past and future, and are worthy of exploration, even for those not boarding a train. It''s safe to say that a great many subways have overcome a reputation for unpleasant shadiness. Under Ground is a tour of the most fascinating subways viewed through the filters of urban planning, ethnology, art, and history. More than 100 subway stations and train cars are described in informative text and stunning color photographs. The book opens with a chapter on the origins of the subway, the story as told by four subways in particular. London''s Underground was the world''s first subway. The Paris Métro was a product of the Industrial Revolution and the first modern subway. New York City''s subway is the largest and busiest subway in America. Buenos Aires pioneered South American subway systems. Today, however,

An information-packed, beautifully illustrated handbook exploring the evolution of design, from the industrial revolution to the digital explosion. Designers, makers and users are the three essential participants in the creation of any kind of design. This is not limited to objects or buildings, but includes environments, systems and networks. Exploring these relationships enables us to understand how we shape the world and how it, in turn, shapes us. To coincide with the Design Museum''s highly anticipated move to the former Commonwealth Institute in Kensington in 2016, Designer Maker User traces the evolution of design, from its roots in the Industrial Revolution to its transformation by the digital explosion. Rather than present a conventional chronology, this book focuses on the continuing interaction between the three key players - Designers, Makers and Users - and the role of design in modern society.

A special feature of the traditional Korean Hanok building style is its difference from Western styles. The Hanoks preserved to this day are built according to practical housing needs, while featuring distinct regional differences and adaptations to their surrounding landscapes. They breathe the style and flair of their inhabitants'' lives and traces of them can be found almost everywhere within these old houses. Historian Cha Jang-seop explains: ''Inhabitants and house are one. When you see someone, you can image the houses he lives in. Koreans have traditionally acknowledged that a person''s honour and dignity is also that of his home. A home is thus a subject like a person, the (hi)story of the house is at the same time the (hi)story of its inhabitants.'' This is why the beautifully designed traditional houses were officially recognised as national cultural heritage. They are simultaneously recognised as important subjects of scientific research and as natoinal of Korean traditional houses according to their

Om det danske konsulats bygning i Essaouira i Marokko. Bygningen repræsenterer et raffineret og vellykket kompromis mellem lokale marokkanske bygningstraditioner og de europæiske ny-klassicistiske præmisser som Frederik V''s udsendte arkitekt Schrøder blev styret af. Dertil et hjemsted for kunstnere, forskere, studerende og videnskabsfolk med fokus på Mellemøsten og Nordafrika. Når man træder ind gennem konsulatets port, møder man først en mørk gang, hvor lyset blot kan skimtes for enden. Ude i lyset folder magien sig ud. På få sekunder glemmer man alt om de triste facader og bygningens forfald. I denne indre gårdhave, omkranset af en søjlegang på alle fire sider, er man nu i stilhed. Vinden og de højtråbende stemmer er borte. Al gadestøj er lukket ude. Man er i dette øjeblik alene med himlen, solen og den historie, som arkitekturen fortæller. Et hjørne af paradiset?" Dansk og fransksproget udgivelse. Rigt illustreret med fotografier af Jens Markus Lindhe.
