Book Summary:

What might it mean, existentially and spiritually, for humans to form an intimate relation with particular sites or dwelling places on earth? In ancient Rome, the notion of a locale's genius loci signaled recognition of its enchanted, enspirited identity. But in a digitalized America of unprecedented mobility can place still matter as seed ground for the soul? Such questions have been broached by ecocritics concerned with how place-inflected experience figures in literature, and by theologians concerned with ecotheology and ecospirituality. This book offers a uniquely integrative perspective, informed by a theological phenomenology of place that takes fuller account of the spiritualities associated with built environments than ecocriticism typically does. Spirits of Place blends theological and cultural analysis with personal reflection, while focusing on the multi-layered witness presented by American literature. John Gatta's interpretive readings range across texts by an array of canonical as well as lesser-known writers. Along the way, it addresses such themes as the religious implications of localism vs. globalism; the diverse spiritualities associated with long-term residency, resettlement, and pilgrimage; why some sites seem more hallowed than others; and how the creative spirit of Imagination figures in place-identified perceptions of the numinous. Whether in Christian or other religious terms, no discrete place matters absolutely. Yet this study demonstrates how and why hallowed geography and the sacramentality of place have mattered throughout our cultural history.

Book Summary:

"In considering these personal landscapes Jane Brown brings alive the places of their affections. For E. M. Forster this was epitomized by his home, Rooksnest, which became the model for his famous Howards End. Rupert Brooke, son of a Rugby schoolmaster, was a product of the clipped quadrangles of Cambridge and immortalized the meadows at Grantchester. L. P. Hartley's holidays in Norfolk coloured his novels though he rejected his native Fens. Virginia Woolf found inspiration in her memories from childhood, reinventing the magic of the Cornish coast in her novels while living on the rolling green hills of the Sussex Downs."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Summary:

Built environment surrounds us for 90% of our lives but only now are we realising its influence on the environment, our health, and how we think, feel and behave both individually and socially. Spirit & Place shows how to work towards a sustainable environment through socially inclusive processes of placemaking, and how to create places that are nourishing psychologically and physically, to soul and spirit as well as body. This book's unique arguments identify important, but often unrecognised, principles and illustrate their applicability in a wide range of situations, price-ranges and climates. It shows how to reconcile the apparently incompatible demands of environmental, economic and social sustainability; how to moderate climate to make places of delight, and realign social pressures so places both support society and maximise economic viability. Thought provoking and easy to understand, Christopher Day uses everyday examples to relate his theories to practice and our experience.

Book Summary:

Spirit of Place is the first monograph on the work of Chad Oppenheim and his firm, Oppenheim Architects, and features seven of the award-winning firm’s projects, with a focus on how the architectural design honors the natural elements of each site. Oppenheim Architects’ first monograph, Spirit of Place, explores seven of the award-winning architectural firm’s acclaimed projects, located in beautiful settings across the globe. The book includes 120 stunning photographs and minimal text. The projects presented range in scale and location from homes in the Bahamas and Aspen to a resort in the Jordanian desert. The images, like the architecture, focus on and celebrate the natural world, illustrating Chad Oppenheim’s design philosophy that “form follows feeling.” Through passion and sensitivity towards man and nature, the firm designs monumental yet silent work that invokes a site’s inherent power. “For thousands of years, civilization has constructed its buildings on the land. We prefer to construct our buildings with the land, where architecture recedes and becomes a frame,” writes Chad Oppenheim. The projects are categorized by each site’s predominant natural element: dune, desert, stream, river, sea, canyon, and peninsula. The volume includes text by Chad Oppenheim, Val K. Warke, Antón García-Abril, and Mark Jarzombek. This book will appeal to readers interested in architecture, photography, nature, sustainability, and the environment.

Book Summary:

Lose yourself in the definitive collection of glorious travel sketches by our century's best loved voyager and real-life family member of The Durrells in Corfu. 'Depicts the brio of Durrell's existence with intoxicating vividness.' New York Times 'Much more than just a chronicle of his travels ... Reveals Durrell's honesty, outspokenness, warmth, and extreme sensitivity to people and to the beauty of nature ... Unusual and fascinating.' Library Journal 'Excellent, vigorous, exciting, unselfconscious, with a lively, original vocabulary ... Shot through with strength and vitality.' TLS From the moment of his birth, Lawrence Durrell was far from home. A British child in India, he was sent to England to receive an education, and by his early twenties had already tired of his native land. With family in tow, he departed for Greece, and spent the rest of his life wandering the world. He traveled not to sight-see but to live, and made homes in Egypt, France, Yugoslavia, and Argentina. Each time he landed, he rooted himself deep into the native soil, taking in not just the sights and sounds of his new land, but the essential character of the country. In this definitive collection of glorious letters and essays, Durrell exhibits the power of poetic observation that made his travel writing so extraordinary.
