When criticized about the lack of architecture in Anna Karenina, connecting the themes of Levin and Anna Karenina, Tolstoj disagreed: “The arches of the vault are brought together in such a way that it is even impossible to notice where the keystone is.” This book explores the architecture, attempting to trace the pattern of the invisible pillars that support the 'arches' on both side of the 'vault', leading to the discovery of the 'keystone' which Tolstoj tried so hard to keep invisible.

Films use architecture as visual shorthand to tell viewers everything they need to know about the characters in a short amount of time. Illustrated by a diverse range of films from different eras and cultures, this book investigates the reciprocity between film and architecture. Using a phenomenological approach, it describes how we, the viewers, can learn how to read architecture and design in film in order to see the many inherent messages. Architecture’s representational capacity contributes to the plausibility or 'reality' possible in film. The book provides an ontological understanding that clarifies and stabilizes the reciprocity of the actual world and a filmic world of illusion and human imagination, thereby shedding light on both film and architecture.

Church Builders It is only out of sacred reality that sacred buildings can grow ... that sacred substance out of which churches can be built must be alive and real to us. Rudolf Schwarz This book traces developments in church building through the momentous changes in architecture and theology of the twentieth century. It illustrates the broad spectrum of modern ecclesiastical architecture which has emerged as the synthesis of the pluralism of the turn of the century and the purity and clarity of the Modern Movement. The opening essay by Edwin Heathcote charts the defining years of architectural development-the fundamental upheavals in theological conceptions of the nature of worship and the space for ritual - providing an outline of the concrete manifestations of these changes across the strongholds of Christianity in Europe and the USA. There is a brief analysis of work from the background of historicism through to the Arts and Crafts, the Secession and the emergent philosophy of Functionalism leading to the foundations of the modern church building. Among the many architects featured in this section are Auguste Perret, Rudolf-Schwarz, Otto Bartning, Dominikus Böhm, Antoni Gaudí, Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier. This is followed by a fully illustrated account by Iona Spens of some of the most interesting church builders of our time. The selection of churches and projects dates from the late 1950s to the present day and includes the work of Tadao Ando, Siren Architects, Fay Jones, Philip Johnson, Mario Botta, Imre Makovecz and Juha Leiviskä revealing the fantastic pluralism which defines the architecture of the Christian Church as it prepares for its third millennium. The motive of Church Builders, the fourth title in the Builders series, is to convey the critical changes that have affected our spiritual fabric. Other titles in this series published by Academy Editions include: Museum Builders Theatre Builders Library Builders Future titles include: Airport Builders

Landscape Ecology in the Dutch Context

This book is the result of three symposia of the Dutch Society for Landscape Ecology. The first symposium in 2005 was about the National Ecological Network in the Netherlands . The reason was that the implementation of the NEN, decided upon in 1990, was halfway. The second symposium, in 2006, was about urban ecology and the third one, to be held in 2007, will be about civil infrastructure. This book does not cover the conferences completely and new contributions are added. The three themes are important contexts in which landscape ecologists do their research and apply their knowledge and skills. Of course, there are many more subjects to hold conferences about, for example climate change, urbanisation, agriculture, landscape ecology itself etc. The focus of the conferences is on the Netherlands, with its urbanisation, intensive land use and water management as characteristic features. Although many WLO members do their work abroad or in an international context, these conferences offer a window on what happens in the Dutch context. The experiences may be of value for other contexts and that is why we present the results in English. The selected themes and the focus on the Dutch context are serious demarcations of what landscape ecology in the Netherlands is all about. The book does not represent all research and applications of landscape ecology.
