Introduzione: I presupposti di questo breve libro sono puramente riflessivi, il mio obbiettivo è quello di stimolare una discussione più ampia sia tra gli addetti ai lavori che tra le... More > persone troppo impegnate in altre cose della vita. Mi sono sempre posto il problema del rapporto che si instaura con il territorio, spesso girando in treno piuttosto che in macchina o a piedi la nostra è una percezione dinamica, variabile , anche quando stiamo fermi il contorno è sempre in movimento. Ora vorrei chiarire meglio il titolo del libro, chi è il pastore? Siamo noi quando mettiamo radici in un determinato luogo; l'astronauta per contro rappresenta il forestiero che non ha ancora instaurato un legame duraturo con i luoghi.< Less
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

The Cast Iron District in New York City marks influential transitions from traditional masonry into modern steel construction and from the process of manufacturing individual parts to the... More > mass-production of multi-purpose (structural, weather barrier, decoratative) modular building components. Though protected by historic preservation initiatives, there is no guarantee that land-value will not overcome intrinsic-value, pressuring either adaptation or complete redevelopment. Among others, the Japanese Metabolists of the 1960’s conceptualized premanufactured blocks inserted within a framework where an entire building or parts of buildings could be added or removed on demand. The Metabolists tapped into an idea that could be applied not only at the city and megastructure scale, but also at the scale of existing buildings throughout cities. By interpreting a building as a piece within the framework of the city, a historic building holds the potential for full adaptation with the future city.< Less
