Housing for Humans

‘Housing for Humans: A Book to Imagine, Create and Design a New Housing Model in America’:
Multi-generational homes - new housing

When we think about houses, we tend to imagine them as a static box: there and forever. And yet, dwellings have evolved because people who live in them do. But how can a house built in the 1910s still work today? Will the houses built in 2010 still work for the humans of 2110? To understand how housing and families work we must discuss how and where people live.

The first monograph on award-winning designer Luca Nichetto’s eponymous studio

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

Max Fraser has authored multiple design books and regularly speaks on the subject for international events and broadcasters.

Francesca Picchi is an architect, journalist and curator. She has contributed to Phaidon publications including James Irvine (2015) and Ettore Sottsass (2017).

Luca Nichetto is a multidisciplinary designer whose work encompasses furniture, industrial design, architecture and interiors.

Nichetto Studio features over 400 photographs and sketches of projects and products from the past two decades, painting a fascinating portrait of a trailblazing contemporary design practice. This chronology is punctuated by texts on the development of ten highlighted products examined in Luca Nichetto’s own words. These include collaborations with nendo, Steinway & Sons, Ginori 1735 and Hermès, each exemplifying Nichetto Studio’s emphasis on craftsmanship and collaboration.

Other featured products include Murano glass vases and lamps that recall Nichetto’s Venetian roots in addition to chairs, tables, rugs, scarves, sunglasses and more. Elsewhere is a 3D-printable cookie cutter and roller with a signature recipe by the Studio – a response to the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns intended to offer anyone, anywhere, a moment of levity. Such consideration for the human users of design demonstrates one of the core tenets of the Studio: collaboration and the importance of the relationship between designer, supplier, maker and user.

This belief is evident in the twelve interviews with key collaborators, artisans, suppliers, curators and entrepreneurs included in Nichetto Studio. In conversation with the authors, these key figures explore their relationship with Luca Nichetto and examine the integral role of collaboration in good design.

A further four interviews with Nichetto himself explore key aspects of the practice, including his heritage and background, the business of design, sustainability and the importance of learning from the next generation.

Reinventing the City – Interaction, Equity, Sustainability

by Brazilian architect and urban planner Sérgio Magalhães

In his latest book, architect and urban planner Sérgio Magalhães defends a paradigm shift for Brazilian cities

Reinventing the City - Interaction, Equity, Sustainability

Published by Rio Books, ‘Reinventing the City – Interaction, Equity, Sustainability’ reinforces the main challenges faced by contemporary urban spaces, suggests possible ways to face them, and defends a shared protagonism of the cities in the country’s development.

Every city demands for collective action so it can be reinvented and up to the 21st century’s demands, especially in a post-pandemic world: that is the main idea of the book ‘Reinventing the City – Interaction, Equity, Sustainability’, written by Brazilian architect and urban planner Sérgio Magalhães. The work puts into discussion the main challenges faced by Brazilian urban spaces in the search for cities that can be less predatory and unequal, and more democratic, inclusive and sustainable. Throughout the book, the author highlights the case of Rio Janeiro as an iconic metropolitan city, which concentrates many attributes, contrasts, shortages and potentialities that help form the national identity.

Sérgio Magalhães is one of the main names of Brazilian contemporary urban planning. He was the Chairman of the Brazilian Institute of Architects (IAB) from 2012 to 2017, and the president of the 27th World Congress of Architects (UIA2021RIO). The architect has occupied the position of Rio de Janeiro’s Municipal Secretary of Housing (1993-2000) and was responsible for conceiving the housing policy of the city, which includes the Favela-Bairro program, that was implemented in 155 favelas of Rio. He has won national and international awards, including five annual prizes of the Brazilian Institute of Architects, the prize ‘América de Arquitectura’, and the Spanish prize FAD 2012, for the Favela-Bairro Program. Sérgio is a professor at the graduate program of the School of Architecture and Urbanism – FAU/UFRJ.

In his fifth book, the author shares, in terms of urban planning, the social, political and economic consequences of the lack of care for our cities, which are the greatest national material heritage and our main cultural artifact. The text innovates by defending a shared protagonism of the cities as an essential tool for the country’s development, in opposition to the economic debate hegemony that has been gaining strength for the last decades.

Magalhães highlights that the coronavirus pandemic has evidenced the interrelation between economics, politics, culture, climate, the planet and urban spaces, without any subordination, and that, now, cities have to be treated considering those strategic dimensions.

‘The book aims at putting into political debate and social demand the comprehension that there will be no country development without the qualification of cities and universal public services, as essential conditions for a better future. National development and urban development are interdependent. For a long time, we have abandoned our cities, but we need to recognize that they are a place of education, health care, work, knowledge, innovation, and it’s where 85% of Brazilians live nowadays’, the author defends.

The architect structures his new book based on three fundamental aspects for a city to attend to the demands of the 21st century: interaction, equity and sustainability. The first one, interaction, means to value social exchanges, comprehend diversity and stand up for anti-segregation. The second one, equity, is a defense of universal public services of quality that attend to every social stratum. The last one is related to the planet, considering the indissociable relationship between human life, nature and climate conditions.

Besides being a critical study, therefore indispensable, the book lists urban planning propositions that are able to guide the implementation of programs in agreement with the three concepts mentioned.

‘The word ‘reinventing’ is clearly strong, but also appropriate as a mobilizing sign for indispensable change. We need to look at our life environment, the potentialities of cities and the urban theme as a pressing matter for political agenda’, says Magalhães.

The path is one of hope: this is what the French sociologist and philosopher Edgar Morin states, considering the possibility of the forces of good ending up victorious in the post-pandemic world. In the book, Sérgio Magalhães uses such defense to convince the reader that this is a good alternative.

THE FUNDAMENTAL ROLE OF RIO DE JANEIRO FOR THE COUNTRY

As a passionate scholar and professional dedicated to understanding the architectural, urbanistic, natural, historical, cultural and socioeconomic nuances of Rio de Janeiro, Sérgio Magalhães has chosen the city as the main character of his new book. For the author, this metropolitan city evoques what is of more challenging and, at the same time, inspiring for a complete reinvention, fulfilling a reference role for Brazil.

Among the problems of Rio that are evidenced throughout the work, the urban planner points out serious urbanistic errors, such as the abandonment of the city’s historical center and the reduction of its fundamental role, as well as the increasing occupation of remote areas of the metropolitan region. In relation to the possible ways of facing those challenges, the author suggests discussing a new institucional plan for the city, one that is up to its importance and representativeness for the whole country.

At the end of the book, the readers can check the ‘Rio de Janeiro Charter’, a document that is a result from the debates that happened during the 27th World Congress of Architects, that took place in Rio de Janeiro in 2021.

An anthology of 21 insightful conversations selected by the book’s author Vladimir Belogolovsky from his archive of interviews conducted with leading Chinese architects during his extensive travels in China.

The book is unprecedented in its breadth, depth, and transparency of presenting Chinese architects’ most
original buildings and how they came about Chinese contemporary architecture has fully emerged and now represents a significant body of work with distinctive regional characteristics.

Since the mid-1990s, when China allowed its architects to practice independently from government-run design institutes, a new kind of architecture, distinguished by unique regional characteristics, has emerged. China Dialogues is a rigorously selected collection of insightful interviews that the book’s author Vladimir Belogolovsky has conducted with 21 leading Chinese architects during his extensive travels in China. At the time when so many buildings that are being built around the world are no longer rooted in their place and culture, the leading Chinese architects succeeded collectively in producing a unique architectural body of work that could not be confused with any other regional school.

The interviews are accompanied by 190 photographs and drawings of beautifully executed projects built throughout China since the early 2000s. China Dialogues opens up the thinking process of the country’s top architects, as they share their ideas, insights, intentions, and visions in unusually revealing and candid ways.

The book includes a foreword by photographer Iwan Baan, author’s introduction, and 21 interviews, including with Wang Shu of Amateur Studio, Yung Ho Chang of Atelier FCJZ, Xu Tiantian of DnA_Design and Architecture, Dong Gong of Vector Architects, Ma Yansong of MAD Architects, Li Xiaodong, Zhu Pei, Liu Jiakun, Atelier Deshaus, Li Hu of Open Architecture, Neri&Hu, Wang Hui of URBANUS, and Zhang Ke of ZAO/standardarchitecture.

Blurbs:

“This remarkably revealing and celebratory book is a summation of a series of interviews recently conducted
by Vladimir Belogolovsky with all leading architects currently practicing in the People’s Republic of China.

Herein each conversation is an extraordinary testimony to the energy of an undeniable renaissance, in
which these talented and highly cultivated architects are engaged in the common project of creating a civic
culture for a new society. In its move away from the instant high-rise megacity, the Chinese government has
seemingly opted, for the decentralized modernization of the society, an inspiring project, which is largely lost
in the rest of the world.”

Kenneth Frampton, Ware Professor of Architecture at GASP, Columbia University

“My first trip to China in December 2001 changed my life. I was invited to an international competition for a
new town in Nanning in Guangxi region. China was opening up to a desire and an excitement for modern
architecture in a spirit of new freedom and hope for the future. In China Dialogues, Vladimir Belogolovsky
tirelessly presents the Chinese architects who in 20 years have embodied that new freedom and promise.”

Steven Holl, America’s Best Architect (Time, 2001), Praemium Imperiale (2014)

“Vladimir Belogolovsky has caught China in mid-somersault from tradition to ways of building and anchoring
communities that go far beyond what we know in the West. This book assembles some of the very best
practices not just in Asia, but in the world, displaying their work with photographs of great depth, while letting
the designers tell us about their sources, dreams, and aspirations.”

Aaron Betsky, Director, Virginia Tech’s School of Architecture

“Away from the stereotypes about China’s massive urban transformations, Vladimir Belogolovsky lifts the
veil on a prolific new generation of designers, who have in common a highly intellectualized and conceptual
understanding of architecture. Amply illustrated, Belogolovsky’s interviews reveal the ideas underlying the
work of some twenty firms, helping to understand their site-specific, reflexive buildings. These focused
conversations highlight how, despite their diversity, the strategies of the contemporary architects converge in
the search for the creation of unique spaces, islands of poetry in the ocean of China’s prosaic
developments.”

Jean-Louis Cohen, Sheldon H. Solow Professor in the History of Architecture, New York University Institute
of Fine Arts

“Until the turn of the century, China was generally seen as a country of an ideologically oriented eclectic
architecture. However, during the past two decades numerous talented young architects have emerged,
projecting new imagery and meanings to today’s architecture in general, which is increasingly declining into
a shallow commercial aestheticization. Vladimir Belogolovsky shares his deep personal knowledge of
current Chinese architecture and the leading individual designers, as well as their thinking and intentions.”

Juhani Pallasmaa, Professor Emeritus, Aalto University, Helsinki

“Vladimir Belogolovsky is an important voice in a global architectural realm. His book China Dialogues is a
pivotal introduction to current architecture in China that did not exist before to such an extent. Well-traveled,
the author shares his deep personal knowledge of current Chinese architects’ thinking and intentions.

Through his judicious editorial choices, this scholarly work synthesizes diverse directions through
contrasting examples of very strong authentic and beautiful architecture that explores the deepest strata of
China’s culture, which is so dear to my heart. The book is full of wonderfully unexpected discoveries of
projects with vernacular evocations of unique places. Belogolovsky’s dialogues should be the primary text
for westerners to understand the ethos of Chinese architecture.”

Antoine Predock, Architect and Professor, Albuquerque, New Mexico, AIA Gold Medal (2006)

“In China Dialogues Vladimir Belogolovsky charts a panorama of Chinese architecture through the words of
its main players. He draws his ‘landscape with figures’ with excellent prose, deep understanding, and
outspoken wit. The curator makes conversation with a dash of contact sport into an art form, showing once
more that interviews are as intelligent as the interviewer.”

Luis Fernández-Galiano, Editor-in-chief, Arquitectura Viva, Madrid

“With refreshing query, engaging themes, and deep insights, Vladimir Belogolovsky‘s Dialogues with China’s
cutting-edge architects investigate and illustrate a vivid scene of contemporary Chinese architecture.”

Xiangning Li, Dean and Professor, Tongji University, Shanghai

“Vladimir Belogolovsky’s book gathers an inquisitive collection of thoughts from outstanding architects in
contemporary China; it is a critical documentation of the author’s in-depth conversations about the past, the
future, and the current moment of Chinese architecture.”

Cui Kai, Honorary President, Chief Architect of China Architecture Design & Research Group (CADG),
Beijing

“This bringing together of interviews from among China’s emerging group of architects, sheds light on their
common and individual motivations, backgrounds, and ambitions. Lavishly and thoughtfully illustrated, this
volume will serve scholarship on contemporary Chinese architecture for years to come.”

Peter G. Rowe, Raymond Garbe Professor of Architecture and Urban Design, Harvard University
