The Dageraad

The Dageraad is a world-famous social housing complex located in Berlage’s Plan Zuid. It was designed by the architects Michel de Klerk and Piet Kramer in the style of the Amsterdam School. The initiative to build it was taken by a workers cooperative that managed shops and wanted to provide the workers with good quality housing. Important Dutch politicians were involved in its realisation, among them Amsterdam’s Alderman Floor Wibaut, who is still honoured at the complex today. In 2001, the building was hailed as the most beautiful social housing complex in the Netherlands. This book describes the remarkable architecture of The Dageraad and the ideals that inspired it. It is published by Museum Het Schip and the affiliated Visitor Centre De Dageraad.

Suprasensitivity in architecture

SUPRASENSITIVITY IN ARCHITECTURE MAURICE NIO TOUCH ME! With warm fingers and I will change... Cover with thermochromic ink. You sometimes have the sensation that, once you enter a particular room, you realize that you're not welcome, that you are out of sync and out of place. It is not a matter of 'a feeling' - it is pure consciousness. Straight through the noise of impressions and moods, there is the pure and primary awareness of the space itself. Beyond the vagaries of taste and subjectivity, there is the notion of the supra-sensitive. This is the realm of atoms - and the world of unique frequencies. This is the realm where we, designers, must strike a chord by animating the things diligently, by evoking a chain reaction of animated materials. In the end, it's all about the principle of animation. Becoming conscious of the supra-sensitive world is one thing; being willing to do something with that consciousness and influence that world is another. As a designer, you must know how to strike the right chord in stirring up the unique frequency of things - particularly where matter is concerned. If you are able to animate matter with a particular vibration which then triggers another vibration, you have truly achieved something. Animating matter means manipulating its frequency; manipulating a frequency means creating an experience; and the experience created will inevitably be undergone by someone and evoke some emotion. Behind this cover flap you will find the Italian and Chinese translation of the essay 'The Principle of Animation', including the original Dutch text and... an unpublished Dutch bonus essay.

The Riddle of the real city, or the dark knowledge of urbanism € 40,00
The Riddle of the real city, or the dark knowledge of urbanism

Does our knowledge about city and urban planning have solid ground? Can historical research promote creative thinking? How can we theorise about urban design and architecture in our age of the media? These questions have guided the creation of this multi-layered, richly documented and illustrated triptych, in which the Dutch architectural theorist Wim Nijenhuis pursues a creative goal: to stimulate new ways of thinking in architectural culture. Each part of the triptych treats distinctive issues with a particular style of writing: I - a treatise on urban history. Using the archaeological-genealogical toolkit Nijenhuis reveals the difference between urbanistic discourse in the modern and the classical age; the first staging the street and public space, the latter adhering to representation and mathematical order. In great detail he shows how modern urbanism did not emerge from idealistic motives and technical urgencies, but from an accidental mix of medical, engineering and aesthetical parlances, and how classical thinking on the city dissociated from Renaissance by an intertwining of military science, political science, anthropology and ethics. II - a bundle essays about the condition of the city in our media age. In strikingly composed texts the author prophesies how rapid traffic and transmission speed of media will distort the perception of our real cities. This gradual event will profoundly influence the cultural role of architecture. III - a set of meditations about epistemological problems. Questioning the practice of critical writing, Nijenhuis proposes change of subjectivity (and thereby worldview), ethical indifference, parody, curative mythomania and hypermodern dilettantism. The book is composed as a cloud essay that serves to enrich the reader's theoretical understanding of urban interventions. Dialoguing with philosophers like Bataille, Deleuze, Foucault, Klossowski, Sloterdijk and Virilio, Nijenhuis covers multiple disciplines such as urbanism, architecture, history, media science, philosophy and art. Stretching urbanistic thinking beyond its limits he carries the reader along into the miraculous world of the street, the engineer, the norm, the form, order, fortresses, discipline, army camps, city frontiers, the Temple of Salomon, the quest for beauty, the 'impressiveness' of images, speed, the tragedy of the omnipolis, solidification of time, and the liquidising potency of apocalypticism and Taoist non-action. THE RIDDLE OF THE REAL CITY testifies to four experimental exercises: transitory subjectivism to reveal hidden dimensions of the person, transhistorical verticality to communicate with singular events from the past, theory as toolkit and pursuing a personal path in reading and investigation. WIM NIJENHUIS is Associate Professor Emeritus theory in art and independent writer. He studied urbanism at the Delft University of Technology and has a PhD in Architectural Theory and History. Among his many publications, he is the (co-)author of Eating Brazil (1999) and The Diabolical Highway (2007).

Archescape € 35,00

What might Gianbattista Piranesi (1720-1778) contribute to today's architectural debate? Could his vision of a pensile city inspire the city of tomorrow? Archescape is a new concept based on a reading of Piranesi's Campo Marzio, his sublime reconstruction of ancient Rome. Archescape, a fusion of the words architecture and escape into a new 'scape', addresses two issues: the city flight that tends towards the destruction of what it looks for, and the sprawling urban footprint that is unsustainable and blocks escape. It also conceives a way out: the creation of flight lines inside a dense city. What are flight lines? Can architecture frame them? Do they avoid the fatalities that affect the longing for escape? Could they minimize the impact on the earth while maximizing the contact with nature? The book consists of three parts: a manifesto, a treatise, and a reverie. The escapist manifesto formulates an architectural theory on the basis of the flight line conceptualized by Gilles Deleuze: neither a line between two points, nor a derived function, but a line 'in between' motivated by a primary drive that engages imagination, movement, and design. The treatise of the pensile city analyzes the verbal and visual discourse of Piranesi's Campo Marzio, considering both his other works and his position in his time. The reverie discusses contemporary interpretations of the Campo Marzio as a negative or positive utopia, as a Manhattanist archipelago, or as a field of walls, and culminates in strolls through a future archescape. The text is illustrated by many images, a selection of which is reproduced in visual essays. The reader/viewer is invited to wander through landscapes, mapscapes, and flightscapes. This book is an atlas with many entries. It can be read in a linear way, following the argument as it unfolds from theory and history to design, randomly leafed for inspiration, or selectively searched for topics of interest. Besides the usual notes at the end of each part, discursive notes directly accompany the text, serving as a kind of subterranean guide.

[RE]FRAME € 26,00

Welke rol kunnen de ervaringen en percepties van gebruikers spelen bij de transformatie van industrieel erfgoed tot culturele locaties? Dit is getest in het interactieve ontwerplaboratorium [RE]FRAME dat onderzoeker Marline Lisette Wilders en architect Edoardo Mentegazzi in het Noord-Italiaanse Turijn organiseerden.
