Boris Iofan

Architect behind the Palace of the Soviets

DOM publishers

Boris Iofan (1891-1976) was one of the most significant architects from the Stalin era and is best known for his connection with the monumental Palace of the Soviets - his ambitioned masterpiece which was never completed, initially on account of the Second World War, and then because of shortages in the supply of building material. But the style of the architect, whose main oeuvre was realised in the 1930s, was not limited to the Socialist Classicism that flourished under Stalin.

Manual of Recycling

Buildings as Sources of Materials

DETAIL

Central Europe is richer in raw materials than commonly thought - but they are not found in the ground. Never before have there been more metals, plastics, oil-based composites or minerals in the industrialised nations. One only has to bring them back into circulation. The same goes for buildings and cities. Realising them as gigantic raw material deposits is a new approach taken by the Manual of Recycling.

Day-VII Architecture

A Catalogue of Polish Churches post 1945

DOM publishers

Over 3,000 churches were built in Poland between 1945 and 1989 – more than in any other European country – despite the rejection that the communist state showed towards religion. The majority of these often quite unconventional buildings were constructed together with architects and craftsmen by the parish communities themselves. The authors have named this unique heritage "Day-VII Architecture ", as most of the building was done on the weekends. Neither legal nor prohibited, many of these places of worship became crucial sites for Poland's democratisation process.

Sports Facilities

Leisure and Movement in Urban Space

Edition DETAIL

Gone are the days in which the typically multi-purpose school gyms located somewhere on the outskirts of town are the first thing to come to mind when one mentions sports facilities. The publication Sports Facilities. Leisure and Movement in Urban Space, from the Edition DETAIL series, introduces fifteen current projects that are distinguished by the quality of their construction, integration in the urban context and objectives.

Sustainable Urban Planning

Vibrant Neighbourhoods - Smart Cities - Resilience

Edition DETAIL

Architecture never stands by itself: it must always be seen within its context. The surrounding environment, infrastructure and networks are just as relevant to the design as the intended use. And if we ask about a "building of the future", we must also see it in combination with the requirements set for the "cities of tomorrow".

Architectural Guide Moon

DOM publishers

The moon has  always been a place of longing for earth's inhabitants but the first landing in 1969 really set things in motion. Luna, Ranger and Apollo - these and all of the other missions that followed contributed to the fact that we can now seriously consider settling on the moon. The Architectural Guide Moon, published on occasion of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, manages to show us that all of the planned and realised artefacts not only allow us to recognise a specific lunar architecture, but that one can even set it into its own typology.

Shrinking Cities in Romania (2 volumes)

DOM publishers

Shrinking cities are a worldwide phenomenon. While megacities keep on growing, the mid-sized and smaller cities are often left to deal with dwindling population numbers. These shrinking processes can also trigger uncontrollable dynamics. They are often looked upon by governments and administrations with a degree of trepidation, sometimes even becoming a taboo issue. Ignoring the phenomenon has become quite common in a country that is especially impacted by it due to the large scale of emigration: Romania.

Zoo Buildings

DOM publishers

Zoological gardens and animal parks are among the most popular cultural and leisure facilities when it comes to visitor numbers: in Germany alone the ratio to museum visits is almost forty to one. Yet while cultural buildings such as theatres and museums manage to make headlines, architecture for animals often only merits a marginal note.

Affordable housing is an ongoing political issue. Local authorities have repeatedly been striving to set international standards for these important construction projects since the 1920s. In the tradition of a socially oriented housing development today's focus is on not only on setting out political, but also architectural standards.
