This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. In 1835, Thomas Crawford leaves America to study sculpture in Rome under the world's premier sculptor. This true story takes him back and forth between the ancient Capitol of Rome and the new Capitol of America, Washington, D.C. Art and politics collide as his patrons in America struggle to have his work accepted by a Congress bitterly divided over the issue of slavery. Crawford would eventually create more sculpture for the Capitol than any other sculptor. With the country at war, Abraham Lincoln refuses to halt the construction of the Capitol, and Crawford's greatest work, the statue of Freedom, is placed on the Capitol Dome in the midst of the Civil War, December 2, 1863.Three other men, Charles Sumner, a staunch abolitionist, Senator, and ideologue, Clark Mills, a self-taught sculptor and opportunist, and the supervisor of construction of the Capitol, Captain Montgomery C. Meigs, an autocratic achiever, play major roles in this confrontation between art and politics and the success of Thomas Crawford. The careers of these amazing men, in their own way, mirror Crawford's during this tumultuous period leading up to the Civil War. The book includes 25 pictures.

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. Japanese cities are amongst the most intriguing and confounding anywhere. Their structures, patterns of building and broader visual characteristics defy conventional urban design theories, and the book explores why this is so. Like its cities, Japan’s written language is recognized as one of the most complicated, and the book is unique in revealing how the two are closely related. Set perceptively against a sweep of ideas drawn from history, geography, science, cultural and design theory, Learning from the Japanese City is a highly original exploration of contemporary urbanism that crosses disciplines, scales, time and space. This is a thoroughly revised and much extended version of a book that drew extensive praise in its first edition. Most parts have stood the test of time and remain. A few are replaced or removed; about a hundred figures appear for the first time. Most important is an entirely new (sixth) section. This brings together many of the urban characteristics, otherwise encountered in fragments through the book, in one walkable district of what is arguably Japan’s most convenient metropolis, Nagoya. The interplay between culture, built form and cities remains at the heart of this highly readable book, while a change in subtitle to Looking East in Urban Design reflects increased emphasis on real places and design implications.

Passages aims to provide an interdisciplinary and international focal point for transnational and transcultural studies. Until now such work has mostly been created from, and conveyed in, specific disciplinary languages. Passages is avowedly interdisciplinary. It regards both "transnational" and "transcultural" not as belonging to identifiable schools of thought, but as descriptions for a dynamic interconnection across disciplines. The journal examines the world of the twenty-first century from the dynamic emergence of social, textual, political and economic grounds.

In the safety of their dome, the colonists on Proxima B would create a perfect society-at least that was the plan designed by SECA, the Space Exploration and Colonization Administration. The scientists and administrators at SECA had carefully arranged everything: the dome that could accommodate the colony as it grew, the selection of the two hundred young men and women chosen for their diverse areas of expertise, and of course the technology that would allow the people of Earth to view the "colony experience" as the colonists became acquainted with each other and their new world. The viewing public could hardly wait for this. That was the plan, but unknown to everyone, the frozen planet was home to forces that would disrupt this plan and require the colonists to face physical and emotional tests that they never expected.
