If the world as we know it ended tomorrow, how would you survive? A nuclear war, viral pandemic or asteroid strike. The world as we know it has ended. You and the other survivors must start again. What knowledge would you need to start rebuilding civilisation from scratch? How do you grow food, generate power, prepare medicines, or get metal out of rocks? Could you avert another Dark Ages, or take shortcuts to accelerate redevelopment? Living in the modern world, we have become disconnected from the basic processes and key fundamentals of science that sustain our lives. Ingenious and groundbreaking, The Knowledge explains everything you need to know about everything, revolutionising your understanding of the world. ‘A glorious compendium of the knowledge we have lost in the living...the most inspiring book I’ve read in a long time’ Independent ‘A terrifically engrossing history of science and technology’ Guardian http://the-knowledge.org/

Kimberly Elam fA1/4hrt den Leser auf eine geometrische Reise und gibt Einsicht in den Designprozess, indem sie visuelle Beziehungen untersucht, die sowohl auf mathematischen Prinzipien als auch auf grundlegenden Eigenschaften des Lebens basieren. Elams ErklArungen machen die mathematischen Beziehungen, die sich hinter diesen Designs verbergen, offensichtlich, und ihre EinfA1/4hrung in die Technik der visuellen Analyse macht dieses Buch zu einer unerlAsslichen Hilfe fA1/4r jeden, der grafisch arbeitet. Die Autorin behandelt dabei nicht nur die klassischen Proportionierungssysteme wie den Goldenen Schnitt und wurzelbasierte Rechtecke, sondern auch weniger bekannte Systeme wie z.B. die Fibonaccifolge.

Architecture in Islamic lands is at a critical turning point. Until relatively recently conventional academic research had been conducted largely from an 'Orientalist' perspective. Today, discussions of Islam and architecture are acknowledging the true diversity and complexities of Islamic societies. Innovative and sustainable for centuries, the architecture of Islamic regions declined with colonial and and superpower politics, and with the influx of oil wealth, imported inappropriate building systems, or lapsed into a self-conscious parody of 'Islamic style'. With growing global anxiety over control of oil resources in the Middle East and the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, what happens next? Are we capable today of a new, pluralistic, truly contemporary and ecologically responsible approach to architecture? If so, then such an approach might be the response not only to the cultural and social needs of traditional Islamic societies but to all our needs as "unity in diversity" becomes essential to survival itself. This highly topical issue draws together a prestigious array of contributors, including Barbara Smith, the previous International Editor of The Economist; renowned Turkish architect Turgut Cansever; Nasser Rabbat, the Aga Khan Professor of Islamic Architecture at MIT, and Dr Suha Ozkan, Secretary General of The Aga Khan Award for Architecture. Pressing topics such as the challenge of sustainable development and the precarious course that needs to be drawn between globalism and cultural identity are also covered, as well as close-up views of work in Egypt, The Lebanon and Turkey, and a profile of Syrian architect Sinan Hassan.

Von Millionen Lesern sehnsüchtig erwartet – der neue große Roman vom preisgekrönten Autor des Weltbestsellers »Die Bücherdiebin«. Dies ist die Geschichte der fünf Dunbar-Brüder. Nach dem Tod der geliebten Mutter und dem Weggang ihres Vaters leben sie nach ihren ganz eigenen Regeln. Sie trauern, sie lieben, sie hassen, sie hoffen und sie suchen. Nach einem Weg, mit ihrer Vergangenheit klarzukommen, nach der Wahrheit und nach Vergebung. Schließlich ist es Clay – angetrieben von den Erinnerungen an ihren tragischen Verlust –, der beschließt, eine Brücke zu bauen. Eine Brücke, die Vergangenheit zu überwinden und so sich selbst und seine Familie zu retten. Dafür verlangt er sich alles ab, was er geben kann, und mehr: nichts weniger als ein Wunder.
