In Junkspace (2001), architect Rem Koolhaas itemised in delirious detail how our cities are being overwhelmed. His celebrated jeremiad is here updated and twinned with Running Room, a fresh response from architectural critic Hal Foster. 'The manifesto is a modernist mode, one that looks to the future - Junkspace makes no such claim: Architecture disappeared in the twentieth century, states Koolhaas matter-of-factly. Junkspace does a harder thing: it foretells the present, which is to say that it calls on us to recognize what is already everywhere around us.' Hal Foster Is there a future for architecture? If so, it might begin with the meditations - by turns elegant and frantic - of Rem Koolhaas and Hal Foster: 'even if there is no outside to Junkspace, there is still running room to be made in its cracks - ' 'Junkspace is the new flamboyant, flexible, forgettable face of architecture, rendered by Rem Koolhaas in a visceral and rampantly analytical essay.'

This book is about the impact of literature upon cities world-wide, and cities upon literature. It examines why the city matters so much to contemporary critical theory, and why it has inspired so many forms of writing which have attempted to deal with its challenges to think about it and to represent it. Gathering together 40 contributors who look at different modes of writing and film-making in throughout the world, this handbook asks how the modern city has engendered so much theoretical consideration, and looks at cities and their literature from China to Peru, from New York to Paris, from London to Kinshasa. It looks at some of the ways in which modern cities – whether capitals, shanty-towns, industrial or ‘rust-belt’ – have forced themselves on people’s ways of thinking and writing.

Studios are, at once, material environments and symbolic forms, sites of artistic creation and physical labor, and nodes in networks of resource circulation. They are architectural places that generate virtual spaces—worlds built to build worlds. Yet, despite being icons of corporate identity, studios have faded into the background of critical discourse and into the margins of film and media history. In response, In the Studio demonstrates that when we foreground these worlds, we gain new insights into moving-image culture and the dynamics that quietly mark the worlds on our screens. Spanning the twentieth century and moving globally, this unique collection tells new stories about studio icons—Pinewood, Cinecittà, Churubusco, and CBS—as well as about the experimental workplaces of filmmakers and artists from Aleksandr Medvedkin to Charles and Ray Eames and Hollis Frampton.

Established in 1998, the Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art is one of the world’s largest celebrations of contemporary art, involving eight major art spaces packed with over 500,000 visitors. Made Up! celebrates 10 years of commissioning ambitious and challenging new work in public projects, as well as the exhibition’s broad-ranging exploration of “making things up”—dystopias, utopias, narrative fiction, fantasy, myths, lies, subversions, and spectacle—in order to better inform the viewer of art’s capacity to transport us and generate alternative realities. Instead of a traditional catalog, Made Up! instead features ten essays exploring imaginative themes and articulating artists’ installations though full-color images and extensive illustration.

A program of science activities for children in the early childhood years and their parents is offered. The three different formats of the Playtime Is Science program are adaptable to a variety of settings and schedules. The Parent/Child Activity Program includes one parents-only session in which participants learn that routine chores involve physical science concepts they can share with their children. During the remaining four sessions, children are given 45 minutes to learn activities. Parents act as facilitators in the activities. In the second version of the program, Parents as Teachers, parents work not only with their own children, but also with their children's classmates. The third version, Super Science Saturday, gives parents a chance to use the program on weekends. The five core activities of the program involve physical science experiences with materials commonly found in the home. Activities include making and using sieves, creating a "mystery bottle," making and tossing bean bags, building with "wonderful junk," and discovering how machines work. Sections of the guide provide directions, a program overview, a resource list of appropriate picture and activity books, and step-by-step activity sheets. (RH)

Recalling the genesis of one of the most ambitious architectural and social challenges in recent history, this volume explores the derelict slaughterhouse of La Villette, located in the former notoriously rough sector of northern Paris. The record demonstrates how this location became the unlikely focal point of every major architecture firm in the world when the Paris city council decided to finance a major makeover. Featuring exclusive interviews with the likes of Christian de Portzamparc and Rem Koolhaas, the study offers numerous illustrations, making it ideal for architecture lovers while also appealing to the socially-conscious interested in learning how a slum became a major cultural venue. A brilliant and unusual essay about architecture at its best, this survey is also a powerful political statement unafraid to tackle the burning issue of urban wastelands and how to give them a revitalized future.
