Industrial manufacturing facilities have always been an own category in architecture. Ever since the development of factories in the 17th century this type of buildings have first of all served to improve the production process while reflecting at the same time the workflow. Furthermore plants have also the task of representing the values of the company to the outside world. The volume is dedicated to the inner organization of contemporary factory design as well as to its outer appearance featuring around 60 projects from all continents.

In spite of its monumentality, the architecture of Legorreta + Legorreta is conceived for us to live in: it suits our needs, our appetites, and our emotions. Some of the best examples are seen in the vestibules of the Center of Visual Arts and of the Sheraton Hotel in Bilbao. Geometric pure and timeless forms instill rotundity and clarity into the complicated projects. Even in large complexes, like the Chiron Laboratories, or the Egade Graduate School, privacy and simplicity is preserved. The treatment of light also aids them in creating different spaces without any need of walls or separators. The application of color is a most important priority, especially in projects set in their native Mexico. There are tones that the architects use to dramatize spaces which intensify the personal experience of the people in the buildings. All of these ingredients integrate architecture, landscaping, and interior decoration into a single discipline that respects the place and the traditions.
While the computer has made sweeping transparent planes and polished metal details comonplace, at least in renderings, few architects are actually building these images, and none with the craft and imagination of Smith-Miller + Hawkinson. This New York-based practice has recently vaulted into international prominence with the completion of their Glass Museum in Corning, New York. Built entirely of glass walls held in place by marine-quality fittings, this building has stunned the world with its sensuous qualities of transparency, reflection, and retraction.Between Spaces is a collaboration between the architects and the world-famous photographer Judith Turner, whose seminal book Judith Turner Photographs Five Architects established a new way of looking at architectural photography upon its publication two decades ago. Her dramatic duotone photographs illustrate the details, complexity, and qualities of light and space found inn Smith-Miller + Hawkinson's architecture.This new monograph features in-depth examinations of five recently constructed projects--Corning Glass Center, Loft for Robert Greenburg, InsideOut/Fabrications, North Carolina Musuem of Art Amphitheater & Outdoor Cinema, and Pier 11--and two unbuilt projects--Ferry Terminal Guidlines and Shilla-Daechi Bulding. This beautiful volume is lavishly illustrated with plans, models, and stunning tour-de-force photography.
Louis Comfort Tiffany was highly skilled in jewellery design, as well as ceramics, enamels, and metalwork. However, he is best known for his beautiful stained-glass designs. Using opalescent glass in a variety of colours and textures, he created a stunning range of jewel-like Art Nouveau works. This work presents his work with accompanying text.

„... O carte captivant? care, descriind revista Arhitectura, scrie într-ul alt fel istoria profesiunii de arhitect în România, o istorie a c?rei importan?? a fost trecut? cu vederea de ceea ce s-a publicat pân? acum. Pe de alt? parte, autoarea ne pune cu generozitate la dispozi?ie un instrument de lucru, foarte util istoricilor ?i cercet?rilor viitoare pe care le sper?m. ” (Prof. dr. arh. Ana Maria Zaharide)
