English | 30 Oct. 2008 | ISBN: 0472050389 | 352 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

In ""Topographies of Class"", Sabine Hake explores the question of why Weimar Berlin has such a powerful hold on the urban imagination. Approaching Weimar architectural culture from the perspective of mass discourse and class analysis, Hake examines the way in which architectural projects, debates, and representations in literature, photography, and film played a key role in establishing the terms under which contemporaries made sense of the rise of white-collar society.

From Craft to Profession: The Practice of Architecture in Nineteenth-Century America
Publisher: University of California Press | ISBN: 0520214943 | edition 1999 | PDF | 281 pages | 13,8 mb

This is the first in-depth study of how the architectural profession emerged in early American history. Mary Woods dispels the prevailing notion that the profession developed under the leadership of men formally schooled in architecture as an art during the late nineteenth century. Instead, she cites several instances in the early 1800s of craftsmen-builders who shifted their identity to that of professional architects. While struggling to survive as designers and supervisors of construction projects, these men organized professional societies and worked for architectural education, appropriate compensation, and accreditation.
