What's New on the Bookshelves? October 2014 edition
This month, the shelves are practically overflowing with exciting new book releases, first and foremost Rem Koolhaas' monumental 15-volume book set 'Elements', based on his research in relation to his curation of the 2014 Venice Biennale. Also, Taschen's Renzo Piano monography is released in a revised edition.
'Shooting Space' by Elias Redstone on Phaidon Press offers an extraordinary collection of work by a series of several renowned photographers, interpreting the built environment through their images. Hatje Kanz has just released both 'Finn Juhl and His House', an atmospherical tribute to Danish designer and a bilingual edition of 'How Small? How Vast? How Architecture Grows', featuring the explorative work of Juniya Ishigami.
Another highlight is the remarkable and comprehensive documentation of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret's massive and revolutionary Chandigarh project in India. And finally, 'Loose Ends' - a beautiful and quite unconventional loose leaf monograph on Maria Giuseppina Grasso Cannizzo from Lars Müller Publishers.
