Black Dog Publishing 50% summer discount on latest architectural books
Please find below further information on the titles including in this offer and details on how to order:
Black Dog’s latest release, Colonial Modern: Aesthetics of the Past Rebellions for the Future is a reader focusing on the relationship between modernism and the project of modernisation in architecture, as well as the intertwining of both in the context of colonialism and decolonisation.
Colonial Modern reflects on contemporary research on architectural modernism and colonialism, and initiates new debates on conceptions of modernism and postmodernism. The book includes the work of artists and architects, and is supported by significant texts by specialists in the field. Colonial Modern provides a well-rounded debate and is an essential and informative title for students, academics and professionals in the field, as well as for anyone interested in the interplay of history and design, architecture and urban planning.
Another summer release is The Power of Process: The Architecture of Michael Pearson. For more than forty years, Michael Pearson has been pursuing with a passion an architecture of change, an architecture of flexibility, alteration and movement through time.
Spanning hospitals, universities, industrial structures, schools, workplaces and more, his creations display technical innovation, economy and a sensitivity for local conditions. The Power of Process explores Pearson’s designs in full for the first time, through analysis, insightful criticism and extensive interviews with Pearson himself, covering his beliefs, methods and aims and his memories of projects past and present.
We are also including last summer’s architectural best-seller, Artists’ Studios: MJ Long in the this offer. Artists’ Studios showcases some of the personal work of architect and interior designer MJ Long, providing a rare glimpse into Long’s more intimate projects—focusing on her studio designs for an impressive portfolio of artists, including Frank Auerbach, Sir Peter Blake, Paul Huxley and RB Kitaj.
Artists’ Studios reflects upon the relationship between artist and environment—organised around each studio, detailing the conception of the project and the specific needs of the artists. Written by MJ Long and including texts by the artists themselves, as well as Colin St John Wilson, with whom MJ Long collaborated on many of these projects, Artists’ Studios is a highly personal account, offering Long’s candid observations on each project.
