Textbooks

  1. Olfactory Architectures

    Smell is a sense most architects have engaged with at some point in their work: whether designing a house, a residential care home or the industrial kitchen for a commercial restaurant, the ventilation of rooms and removal of strong and potentially unpleasant odours is a well-rehearsed practice. Yet in addition to the annoying smells, olfaction also offers many opportunities that have traditionally been overlooked, and it’s not just in architecture but right across the built environment professions.

  1. Q&A with Katrin Bohn and André Viljoen, Authors of Second Nature Urban Agriculture

    Authors Katrin Bohn and André Viljoen discuss their new title, Second Nature Urban Agriculture. This book updates and extends the authors' concept for introducing productive urban landscapes, including urban agriculture, into cities as essential elements of sustainable urban infrastructure. It reviews recent research and projects on the subject and presents concrete actions aimed at making urban agriculture happen. 

  2. Peter Larkham Discusses New Title: Alternative Visions of Post-War Reconstruction

    The history of post Second World War reconstruction has recently become an important field of research around the world; Alternative Visions of Post-War Reconstruction is a provocative work that questions the orthodoxies of twentieth century design history. Co-editor, Peter Larkham, sat down with Routledge to discuss the book's significance and his interest in mid-twentieth century urban design and city planning, particularly the period between the start of the Second World War to the mid-sixties.
