  • Keith Moskow. Small Scale: Creative Solutions for Better City Living
    Small Scale: Creative Solutions for Better City Living
    Keith Moskow
    Think big, design small. This is the rallying cry of a new generation of architects and artists who aim to improve the lives of city-dwellers through small-scale public design projects. Using the city as an open-source platform for ideas, these visionaries create urban interventions to address problems specific to urban life. Small Scale presents fifty ingenious yet simple projects ranging from the purely conceptual to the fully realized. From a bridge that curls up into itself when not in use, to a stacked rental car dispenser, to a bus-stop like shelter that uses bright lights to treat seasonal affective disorder in the winter, these projects energize our cities leftover spaces and help us imagine the future of our urban infrastructure. The projects in Small Scale are organized into three sections: those that provide practical services, those that share information, and those that simply delight. Each project is eminently achievable and most do not require many permits or much government oversight or tremendous use of natural resources; indeed, some suggest solutions to the larger problem of energy consumption. Designed by both well-known and up-and-coming architects and artists including Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Ho weler + Yoon Architecture, Morphosis, Studio Olafur Eliasson, and many more, the projects in Small Scale reflect the promise of new ideas, new materials, and new technologies.
  • Steven Harris. True Life: Steven Harris Architects
    True Life: Steven Harris Architects
    Steven Harris
    Effortless and inevitable are architect Steven Harris's two favorite words. With sensitivity to the surrounding landscape, Harris designs homes custom-made to his client's daily-lived experience. His dining rooms are not aggrandizements of tradition, they are places to eat, to gather, or even work; his entry halls are not the primary places of arrival, but rather the final segments of a long trajectory that begins when the resident turns off the main road or exits the elevator. True Life, the firm's first monograph, showcases Harris's residential work over the past twenty-five years. Organized by the activities that propel his designs-dine, lounge, study, play, sleep, and so on-it focuses on people rather than objects. Harris's works are not meant to set lifestyle changes into motion, but rather to cater to those routines already in progress. Herein lies the genius of his work: Harris lets the client speak for the house, not the house for the client. A foreword by writer A.M. Homes places Harris's work in the context of contemporary architecture and speaks to the understated elegance of his designs.
