Human Topographies By Marshall Ford
Paperback: $49.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
The megacity is created by expansion controlled only by the needs of the people. Growth continues informally outward as verticality becomes less possible in urban cores. Incredibly rapid and... More > autonomous patterns of settlement create cities too big for comprehension. What do we do before this expansion creates international, social, political, structural, and economical problems too big for comprehension? This project maximizes our possible/reasonable densities through familiar architectural and construction systems, envisioning appropriate, sustainable, yet futuristic vertical systems that will permit necessary macro and micro vertical expansion, adding rare program like open space, amenities, and agriculture zones, as we engulf the fringes of our megacities. It becomes a 3-dimensional micro-city contained in constantly growing vertical structures, integrated within maximized human topographies. In 30 years when 90% of the world’s population lives in cities, it will not make sense to avoid verticality.< Less

Brownfield Topographies By Tyler Smithson

Brownfield topology is my term for the regeneration of urban brownfield sites through the disturbance of topography and site ecologies. This approach physically moves earth to generate unique... More > arrangements of topography and disperses seeds to create microecologies. Once an initial disturbance is established, natural forces are allowed to resume in the colonization of the site. Elements that further redefine the spatial form of the site are natural forces such as erosion, sedimentation, and floral and faunal colonization. Human use of the site is also permitted to occur in unplanned ways, so that consequent uses and inhabitation will emerge over time. From this, an adaptive terrain emerges to regenerate the site.< Less

Stravinsky's Topology is an innovative explanation of the music of the great composer Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971). Specifically, this book examines Stravinsky’s implementation of certain... More > twelve-tone row forms for particular formal events and to enhance the poetry in his later works with poetic texts. This book, reprinted from a doctoral dissertation, presents a new analytical method called Object-Oriented analysis to study Stravinsky’s smaller works "Epitaphium", "Anthem", "Elegy for J. F. K.", "Fanfare for a New Theater", and "The Owl and the Pussy-Cat". The remainder of this book is devoted to a detailed examination of Stravinsky’s expanded Object-Oriented compositional technique in "The Flood" and in his largest late work, "Threni". This investigation concludes with remarks about how a conductor can apply Object-Oriented analysis in performance. 216 pages.< Less

More > cripple, undermine and demilitarize the most powerful military in the free world ... six dark contributors to America’s current crisis.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
