Moscow: A Guide to Soviet Modernist Architecture 1955-1991 provides descriptions of almost 100 buildings from the most underrated period of Soviet architecture. This is the first guide to bring together the architecture made during the three decades between Khrushchev and Gorbachev, from the naive modernism of the "thaw" of the late 1950s through postmodernism. Buildings include the Palace of Youth, the Rossiya cinema, the Pioneer Palace, the Ostankino TV Tower, the TASS headquarters, the "golden brains" of the Academy of Sciences and less well-known structures such as the House of New Life and the Lenin Komsomol Automobile Plant Museum. The authors situate Moscow's postwar architecture within the historical and political context of the Soviet Union, while also referencing developments in international architecture of the period.

Auch Bilder schreiben Geschichte: Mit seinem radikal subjektiven Blick auf Bauten des Schweizer Architekten Peter Zumthor setzte der Künstler Hans Danuser in den 1980er- und 1990er-Jahren einen Markstein in der Geschichte der Architekturfotografie. Seine Aufnahmen veränderten das fotografische Genre und die Art und Weise, über Architektur und Fotografie nachzudenken. Dieses Buch versammelt Bilder zur Kapelle Sogn Benedetg, zu den Schutzbauten über den römischen Funden in Chur und zur Therme Vals. Es führt die intensive Debatte fort, die die Fotografien vor zwanzig Jahren auslösten. Ein ausführliches Gespräch zwischen Hans Danuser und Hochparterre-Chefredakteur Köbi Gantenbein lotet die Umstände der Zusammenarbeit mit Peter Zumthor aus und fragt, wie sich die Architekturfotografie seither entwickelt hat. Der Kunst- und Architekturhistoriker Philip Ursprung setzt sich in einem detaillierten Essay mit Zumthors Architektur und der fotografischen Repräsentation von Architektur auseinander.

In this thought-provoking book, Jane Rendell explores how architectural space registers in psychoanalysis. She investigates both the inherently spatial vocabulary of psychoanalysis and ideas around the physical 'setting' of the psychoanalytic encounter, with reference to Sigmund Freud, D.W. Winnicott and Andre Green. Building on the innovative writing methods employed in Art and Architecture and Site-Writing, she also addresses the concept of architecture as 'social condenser' a Russian constructivist notion that connects material space and community relations. Tracing this idea's progress from 1920s Moscow to 1950s Britain, Rendell shows how interior and exterior meet in both psychoanalysis and architectural practice. Illuminating a novel field of interdisciplinary enquiry, this book breathes fresh life into notions of social space."
