    Find signed collectible books: 'Design Necessity'
    Book summary:

    Design is a necessity, not something merely desirable if it can be afforded after material costs are covered. Design is a process that permeates every aspect and phase of man's works, not a last-step polishing of the surface. This has at last been recognized at nearly every level of modern society, including now the federal level: Design Necessity was prepared for presentation to the First Federal Design Assembly, sponsored by the National Endowment on the Arts and the Federal Council on the Arts & Humanities, and scheduled to convene in Washington in April 1973 under the aegis of the Presidential presence.

    The coauthors of this book are two of America's best-known writers on the design process, and they are themselves active designers. In their role as program cochairmen of the Assembly, they focus its scope and goals as follows:

    "The Assembly will examine the necessity of design in visual communications, in architecture, in interiors, and in environmental planning. It will consider design as an instrument of organization, a medium for persuasion, a means of relating objects to people, a method for improving safety and efficiency, and a way of coping with the complexity of contemporary Federal agency assignments.

    "The Assembly's emphasis, in other words, is on design performance in response to human needs.

    "Moreover, the emphasis is on demonstrable design performance....

    "The aim of the First Federal Design Assembly is to present a clear and compelling view of design as a process. For in Government today that process is crucial."

    The book documents these assertions: there are sound, proven criteria for judging design effectiveness; design is an urgent requirement, not a cosmetic addition; design can save money; it can save time; it enhances communication; it simplifies use, simplifies manufacture, simplifies maintenance; the design necessity is recognizably present in projects ranging in scale and complexity from a postage stamp to a highway system; the absence of design is a hazardous kind of design (not to design is to suffer the costly consequences of design by default); on any given project, designers and government officials have the same basic goalperformance; and effective design of public services is itself an essential public service.

    Criteria for the design necessity are illustrated in the book by case studies of federal projects that work because they were designed to work. These case studies deal with significant aspects of design not visible on the surface and explain how problems were solved.

    Book summary:

    Information might want to be free; but, why should we free it? We've got enough trouble keeping track of all the petabits that already run around untethered, and risk a computer counterrevolution if we let the situation get much crazier. Information architect Richard Saul Wurman swept the field clear in 1989 with his groundbreaking book that foresaw the problems of data clutter and proposed a radical new means of organizing and presenting knowledge humanistically; for the new century, he has revised it substantially as Information Anxiety 2. This book is sparklingly clear and readable--it'd better be, after all--and offers insight not only to designers, educators, and content developers, but also to anyone who needs to communicate effectively through dense clouds of facts. If Wurman occasionally indulges in New Age-y pop psychology, his analysis is never muddy, and the more hardheaded reader will forgive him soon enough. The discussion alternates between describing the deeply stressful task of absorbing poorly organized data and exploring solutions that require a bit of rethinking, but that reward such an investment with improved understanding and, maybe, a state change from information to wisdom. We could do worse--if we don't pay attention to Wurman and his colleagues, we almost certainly will. --Rob Lightner

    Book summary:

    This publication is a catalogue of various means of urban communication that the author hopes to see evolve and spread in the development of materials about the city and in the articulation of physical aspects of the city itself. The inner connection of the seemingly miscellaneous items manifested here is made immediately apparent to the reader.

    This special issue of the journal Design Quarterly is a catalogue of projects, ideas, books, guides, maps, advertisements, curricula, teaching aids, place signs, route symbols, models, graphs, and other items that make it easier to understand and to "imagine" the environment. A catalogue is meant to give provocative hints of ideas and items available. This catalogue attempts, through the juxtaposition of some 80 projects (all of them pictured), to outline a syllabus for urban communication. "Making the city observable," Wurman observes, "means making the plethora of public information public."

    Information and communication are components of learning, and giving the city visibility implies allowing the city to become an environment for learning. The city can be made observable by developing a school curriculum about our man-made environment, or by designing a clear subway map, or by writing the propositions on a ballot so that nonlawyers can understand them, or by any number of other possibilities illustrated in this volume.

    The following partial list of items is meant only to indicate the range of the cataloguePeltier's birds-eye view of Paris; Wurman's 60 comparative city models; Eames' film on urban communications; Fetter's computer graphics; the AIA Guide to New York City; Michelin's Green Guides; Pan Am's taped tours; Halprin's RSVP Cycles; Lynch's Image of the City; Wyman's Mexico City metro graphics; the London underground map; Psychology Today's city survey; maps for the blind; Philadelphia's school without walls; Kahn's movement notation; and displays from the Laboratory of Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis.

    Book summary:

    The Philadelphia of the 1970s retains strong ties with the Philadelphia of the 1770s: they share a number of significant buildings; there is a partial congruence of squares and streets; and, although the city has otherwise changed greatly since its youth, it remains one of the very few in America that fully merits a guide as comprehensive as this one, which affectionately details beauty marks and warts and all.

    The book encompasses the city and its regional context, and presentsthrough text, photographs, maps in color of routes, areas, events, and resourcesa full image of the city as seen by citizen and visitor as they drive along the major routes and walk within distinctive, largely homogeneous areas. The book highlights individual buildings and monuments, but these are placed in their human settings and are seen from a point of view that takes in the total environment. This guide to a city as it is and as it grew covers routes and areas, the facts of growth, and the plans for growth.

    The reader is oriented along the major routesMarket and Broad, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and the Schuylkill Expressway. He is shown through a number of areas, including Independence Mall, Franklin and Washington and Rittenhouse Squares, Logan Circle, Society Hill, University City, Fairmount Park, Penn Center, Germantown, and Chestnut Hill.

    A following section graphically displays historical data on the city and the region, showing their growth patterns, total population and ethnic population changes, and legal jurisdictions and political districts. Transportation networks are also shown. The final section summarizes city plans from William Penn's of 1682 to the Citizen's Plan of 1960-1970 and the Center City Plan of 1970, gives additional information on Philadelphia architects and architecture, and leads the reader to some interesting interiors.

    If Philadelphia merits a book like this, it's also true that the book is worth of Philadelphia. It is a kind of advanced celebration of the bicentennial of 1776.

    Book summary:

    The Nature of Recreation is a handbook through which the reader-participant can learn to discover what he really wants and needs in the way of recreation. By stressing the identification of performance components in the environment, and with the aid of questions and exercises, the book enables the reader to define and articulate his recreational needsand maybe those of his neighbors down the street or across town, depending on the scope of his social imagination. Originally created to accompany and supplement the exhibitions on Frederick Law Olmsted mounted by the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, this book goes beyond the scope of traditional museum catalogs and so extends the scope of the genre. In this respect, the book is designed and planned to lead a full life independent of an exhibition. And should the reader come away from it determined to use his newly acquired analytical skills and constructive demands as a participating citizen, it will be to the benefit of us all and truly in the spirit of Olmsted.

    The handbook is filled with photographs and diagrams. Olmsted's work is depicted in tones of brown, and more recent creations are shown in green. These two sections (with text about and by Olmsted and on recreation in general) run in parallel throughout the book along with a third section that brings together interesting facts about various facets of recreation.

    Book summary:

    The drawings on display here span the enormous variety of human habitations over many periods, in many places. They range in time from an Egyptian house of 2000 B.C. to a Louis Kahn dwelling of the 1960s, in place from India to Florence to the Yucatán, and in elaboration from a simple two-family Norwegian farmhouse to the Chateau de Chambord.

    The pictured buildings are all drawn to the same scale, 1:384 or 1 inch to 32 feet, so that the relative sizes of the various dwellings can be directly apprehended. In each case, four views are given: the front elevation; a vertical second view, seen in perspective, with the front half of the building cut away; a horizontal sectional view of the main floor, also in perspective, with the upper stories cut away; and a plan of the main floor. The drawings were prepared by the University of North Carolina architecture students. Captions place and date the dwellings, name their architects and clients (if known), give their net and gross areas and volumes, and list the building materials used.

    The dwellings into which the reader is invited are as follows: La Alhambra (Granada)L'Hotel Lambert (Paris)Gamble House (Pasadena)Parson Capen House (Massachusetts)a trullo (Apulia, Italy)Gardsjordet (Norway)Das Jägerhaus (Bern)an Egyptian house (c. 2000 B.C.)Upper Wern-Hir (Wales)Bhaskarrao Vithal's Wada (India)Johansen's Greens Farms (Long Island)Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye a Poissy (Ile de France)Palazzo Daranzati (Florence)a Chinese Marchant's house (Canton)Residential Building, Caius College, CambridgeChateau de Coucy (Aisne)Kahn's Esherick House (Philadelphia)Le Petit TrianonWright's David Lloyd Wright House (Arizona)Donjon de Dinan (Brittany)Casa di M. Obellio Firmo (Pompeii)Wright's Fallingwater (Pennsylvania)a Pelasgian house (c. 2000 B.C.)Palazzo Strozzi (Florence)Le Corbusier's Unite d'Habitation (Provence)Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House (Illinois)Siedlung Halen bei BernCasa di D. Ottavio Quartione (Pompeii)Chateau d'Amboise (Touraine)Radha Krishna Kaul's House (India)Palazzo Riccardi-Medici (Florence)Mulberry Castle (South Carolina)Chateau de Chambord (Touraine)Sutton Place (Surrey)and the House of the Governor (Yucatán, Mayan, c. 900 A.D.).

    In addition, main floor plans are given for these dwellings: Hotel de Jacques Coeur (Bourges), the Katsura Detached Palace (Kyoto), the Palace of Knossos, Mora Farmstead (Sweden), a Median house (c. 1500 B.C.), an Ionian house (c. 1000 B.C.), Monticello, Certosa de Pavia (Lombardy), a house in Fort Worth, Chateau d'Oudon, Cinili Kösk (Istanbul), and Villa Capra, Villa Rotunda (Vincenza).

    The book was published in 1964. After June 1972 it will be available from The MIT Press, its new distributor.

    Book summary:

    "The city is education," this book proclaims. "The city is educationand the architecture of education rarely has much to do with the building of schools. The city is a schoolhouse, and its ground floor is both bulletin board and library. The graffiti of the city are its window displays announcing events; they should reveal its people to themselves, telling about what they're doing and why and where they're doing it. Everything we doif described, made clear, and made observableis education: the 'Show and Tell,' the city itself.... It is a classroom without walls, an open university for people of all ages offering a boundless curriculum with unlimited expertise. If we can make our urban environment comprehensible and observable, we will have created classrooms with endless windows on the world."

    The book resembles the phone company's Yellow Pages, but the intent is not to "let your fingers do the walking"the book is meant to lead you out into the environment, to put you into contact with a lot of different kinds of people, to teach you the what, where, why, and how-to of all sorts of things that go on in the real world. The intent, finally, is to led your head do the thinking, your eyes do the seeing, andit's good exerciseyour feet do the walking.

    "...The city is everywhere around us, and it is rife with learning resources. Even more than classrooms and teachers, the most valuable learning resources in the city are the people, places, and processes that we encounter every day. But in order to realize the vast learning potential of these resources, we must learn to learn from them."

    Yellow Pages of Learning Resources is a guide to the cityany city, any town. It consists of some seventy alphabetically arranged categories and tells us how to tune them in and why they are important to know about. It is a specific guide to people (the pharmacist, the taxicab driver), to places (the airport, the courtroom), and to processes (candy making, city planning).

    Any number of other possibilities can be thought of by students and teachers, and they can then be sought out once the book has made it clear how to get around. "Student" here can be anybodywhile the book is within the range of school-age kids, it is also open to adults, except those who already know how locks work, who the next-door neighbor is, and what ward leaders really do. They are excused from class and are free to go out and learn something new on the way home or at home 9like, why doesn't the furnace thermostat work?).

    Some of the resources listed are also especially suitable for group learning experiences, and thus the book becomes a valuable tool for the teacher, parent, boy or girl scout leader, or adult education group leader.
