South Africa-born Marie Viljoen captures the hearts of her readers as she blogs about cooking and gardening on her tiny 66-square-foot terrace in Brooklyn. Named one of the top 10 gardening blogs by Apartment Therapy and the Discovery Channel, 66 Square Feet has also been covered in the New York Times. The book draws the reader into Viljoen''s beautiful world of unfolding city seasons as she forages through New York City and harvests from her garden to create elegant and inspiring meals that encourage the reader to pause and savor life. Each chapter is a month, and ends in the kitchen, with a menu inspired by her terrace and roof gardens, farmer''s markets, and the occasional weed. Set against a backdrop of growing up in South Africa and moving to the United States, meeting her French husband, and finding a culinary and emotional home in Brooklyn, Viljoen''s book is a love letter to living seasonally in the most famous city on the planet.

Zaha Hadid is a wildly controversial architect whose work remained largely unbuilt for years, despite awards and critical acclaim. Yet in the past decade, Hadid has risen to fame and completed numerous structures like the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, the Glasgow Riverside Museum, and the Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum in Michigan. With her audacious, futuristic designs, Hadid now ranks among the elite of world architecture. Born in Baghdad and educated in London, where her practice is based, Hadid has designed radical architecture for over 30 years. This massive TASCHEN monograph, now available in a specially updated and more accessible edition, covers her complete works to date. The New National Stadium of Japanùvenue of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London are both published for the first time. This volume shows the evolution of Hadid''s career-comprising buildings and furniture and interior designs-with drawings.

Hvem ejer retten til byen? I New York, hvor alt bliver sat på spidsen, er dette spændingsfyldte spørgsmål evigt aktuelt. Denne bog giver i tekst og fotos et nuanceret og anderledes portræt af mennesker og kvarterer i New York - og ikke mindst af kampen for byen som et sted for alle. Kapitel for kapitel kommer newyorkerne i bogen selv til orde, hvilket giver et alsidigt og mere kritisk portræt af den muskuløse metropol, de fleste af os kun kender på overfladen. Bogen tager politisk stilling til det mulige paradigmeskifte, som New York står midt i. Og netop fordi det marginaliserede flertal af borgere holder af deres by, drømmer de også om et andet New York.

Redesigned by Japanese architect Shigeru Uchida, a former office building in the revitalised Asakusa district of Tokyo became the Gate Hotel Kaminarimon, a haven for art, design and creativity. The transformation combines a design aesthetic of subdued elegance with accents of bold, urban vitality, offering splendid city views amidst a backdrop of high-rise towers and the Tokyo Sky Tree. Paintings by acclaimed artist Katsuhiko Hibino hang throughout. In this close reading of architecture and interiors, an intimate portrait of the project as a whole emerges, as Uchida and others identify his integrated approach, something which sets this building apart from its often extravagant context.

It took only a few years for Dubai and Abu Dhabi to become glittering metropolises with state-of-the-art technological standards, the highest highrises, the largest airports, and the world''s largest artificial islands. However, there still is no end in sight, and the other member states of The United Arab Emirates are following suit. DAAB publishers are responding to this highspeed development with a sequel to its first stocktaking in Dubai Architecture & Design. About 30 major projects of internationally leading architectural firms, either still in the planning phase or already under construction - among them the sustainable and CO2-neutral Masdar City by Foster + Partners - are comprehensively introduced with texts and photographs and with the already time-tested solicitude.

This book presents an ethnographic account of the design rhythms found in the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). Written as a collection of short stories it draws on the mundane trajectories of models and architects at OMA and shows how innovation permeates design practice and how everyday techniques and workaday choices set new standards for buildings and urban phenomena. These are invariably not the ''Eureka!'' moments, but rather the routine mundanity of everyday architectural practice. This enquiry into architecture-in-the-making is based on participant observation, extensive interviews and photo-documentation of various projects, such as: the Seattle Public Library; the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, New York; China Central Television (CCTV) and La Casa da Musica, Porto.
