Among the most notable achievements of Scandinavian architecture are a responsible approach to the environment and a keen appreciation for social concerns. The Danish architects Schmidt Hammer Lassen (founded in 1986, with offices in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Oslo, and London) reflect these standards in their remarkable buildings. They attach great importance to the practicality of the structures they design and to their integration into the real context of their surroundings and their users. This monograph presents a selection of their twenty best structures and projects of recent years (from Denmark, Greenland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, England, the Czech Republic, and Saudi Arabia). All the designs are depicted and analyzed according to the following themes: economic, ecological, and social sustainability; the value the building adds to its surroundings; the building’s identity-forming power; and permeability between the public and private spheres.

For courses in the History of Art. Rewritten and reorganized, this new edition weaves together the most recent scholarship, the most current thinking in art history, and the most innovative online supplements, including digital art library. Experience the new Janson and re-experience the history of art. Long established as the classic and seminal introduction to art of the Western world, the Eighth Edition of Janson's History of Art is groundbreaking. When Harry Abrams first published the History of Art in 1962, John F. Kennedy occupied the White House, and Andy Warhol was an emerging artist. Janson offered his readers a strong focus on Western art, an important consideration of technique and style, and a clear point of view. The History of Art, said Janson, was not just a stringing together of historically significant objects, but the writing of a story about their interconnections, a history of styles and of stylistic change. Janson's text focused on the visual and technical characteristics of the objects he discussed, often in extraordinarily eloquent language. Janson's History of Art helped to establish the canon of art history for many generations of scholars. The new Eighth Edition, although revised to remain current with new discoveries and scholarship, continues to follow Janson's lead in important ways: It is limited to the Western tradition, with a chapter on Islamic art and its relationship to Western art. It keeps the focus of the discussion on the object, its manufacture, and its visual character. It considers the contribution of the artist as an important part of the analysis. This edition maintains an organization along the lines established by Janson, with separate chapters on the Northern European Renaissance, the Italian Renaissance, the High Renaissance, and Baroque art, with stylistic divisions for key periods of the modern era. Also embedded in this edition is the narrative of how art has changed over time in the cultures that Europe has claimed as its patrimony.

Since antiquity through to the present, architecture and the pictorial arts (paintings, photography, graphic arts) have not been rigidly separated but interrelated - the one informing the other, and establishing patterns of creation and reception. In the Classical tradition, the education of the architect and artist has always stressed this relationship between the arts, although modern scholarship has too often treated them as separate disciplines.
