Exhibitions have long played a crucial role in defining disciplinary histories. This fascinating volume examines the impact of eleven groundbreaking architecture and design exhibitions held between 1956 and 2006, revealing how they have shaped contemporary understanding and practice of these fields. Featuring written and photographic descriptions of the shows and illuminating essays from noted curators, scholars, critics, designers, and theorists, As Seen: Exhibitions that Made Architecture and DesignHistory explores the multifaceted ways in which exhibitions have reflected on contemporary dilemmas and opened up new processes and ways of working. Providing a fresh perspective on some of the most important exhibitions of the 20th century from America, Europe, and Japan, including This Is Tomorrow, Expo '70, and Massive Change, this book offers a new framework for thinking about how exhibitions can function as a transformative force in the field of architecture and design.

"The freedom of the individual to aim high is a deeply rooted part of the American ethos but we rarely acknowledge its flip side: failure. If people are responsible for their individual successes, is the same true of their failures? This book brings together a variety of disciplinary approaches to explore how people fail in the United States and the West at large, whether economically, politically, socially, culturally, or physically. How do we understand individual failure, especially in the context of the zero-sum game of international capitalism? And what new spaces of resistance, or even pleasure, might failure open up for people and society?"--Amazon website.

The epic second installment in the Elves series, exploring the worlds and lives of the White Elves and the Half-Elves. The White Elves are an ancient race of immortals—wise, proud . . . . and isolated. They choose to live apart from other races, keeping to their island homes and guarding and preserving treasures too precious to expose to the world: books, weapons, sometimes even living creatures. When the last white dragon appears in the land of men, the White Elves have no choice; the monster must be found and brought to safety. Let the hunt begin . . . The Half-Elves are a loathed race. Despised and rejected by purebreds, they have no country, no king, no community. They are persecuted, exiled, imprisoned, or simply exterminated at birth. But all that is about to change. A Chosen One will rise, and the world will never be the same again. Insight Editions is excited to introduce Volume 2 in the internationally acclaimed Elves series. Translated from the original French and featuring show-stopping artwork, this enchanting graphic novel will thrill fans of The Lord of the Rings and other high-fantasy classics!

How do contemporary design practices engage with political and societal issues? Can design realize ideas that lead to significant change? Where would the change happen: in the design studio, on the factory floor, in exhibition settings or on the street? Some of the design world's greatest practitioners, including architects, came together for a multi-faceted, three-year project sponsored by Iaspis. This book, the project's culmination, comprises texts, interviews, drawings and other artwork in three sections: WHAT brings together contemporary and historical writings; HOW analyzes common issues and emerging tactics within socially and politically engaged design; and WHERE offers a broad perspective on new forms of design practice. Featuring facsimiles of 36 projects from the Design Act archive, this rich book is a must-have for designers who care about their role in the wider world.
