Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time
$5.30
Description

Jeff Speck has dedicated his career to determining what makes cities thrive. And he has boiled it down to one key factor: walkability.
The very idea of a modern metropolis evokes visions of bustling sidewalks, vital mass transit, and a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly urban core. But in the typical American city, the car is still king, and downtown is a place that's easy to drive to but often not worth arriving at.
Making walkability happen is relatively easy and cheap; seeing exactly what needs to be done is the trick. In this essential new book, Speck reveals the invisible workings of the city, how simple decisions have cascading effects, and how we can all make the right choices for our communities.
Bursting with sharp observations and real-world examples, giving key insight into what urban planners actually do and how places can and do change, Walkable City lays out a practical, necessary, and eminently achievable vision of how to make our normal American cities great again.

Concrete: A Seven-Thousand-Year History
$13.32
Description
Palley takes us from concrete's earliest beginnings, including the startling proof that at least one of the pyramids was partially poured, through the building of the Eddystone Light, to the dramatic building explosion in the use of concrete during the twentieth century and the start of the twenty-first century. He discusses the environmental impact of the production of concrete and attempts to find substitutes for the burning of lime. He ends by contemplating outer space, where almost all of the elements needed to build extraterrestrial communities already exist in the chemical makeup of the moon and Mars.

Architecture Without Rules: The Houses of Marcel Breuer and Herbert Beckhard (First Edition)
$22.45
Description
Although Marcel Breuer's name conjures up images of his ubiquitous Breuer Chair, it is his many houses that best reveal his design philosophy. Virtually all of his houses were designed in collaboration with Herbert Beckhard, who began as a young associate and later became a partner in Breuer's firm. The houses are noted for such dynamics as interior spaces that flow into each other, a rigorous denial of extraneous detail, a keen respect for, and use of, natural materials, innovative applications of state-of-the-art technology and a conspicuous articulation of structure.
