Book Summary:

Few members from the different groups of Egyptian architects suffer from the assumption of what can be known as intellectual illiteracy in the realm of urban design. This work discusses the theme ‘illiteracy of thought’ versus ‘intellectual ability’, which is necessary for this area of cognitive thinking for to raise professional aptitude. It explains some determinations, indicators, and characteristics beyond specialists' ways of thinking and focuses on the fundamental difference between intellectual illiteracy and intellectual ability. The main purpose is intellectual literacy, which is needed to activate the methods of self-criticism on two sides—the learning side with cognitive styles and the side of professional practice. With an emphasis on the importance of the study of history to be the intro to provide knowledge to professionals. This book presents the concepts of cognitive and learning style and the intellectual human capital as frameworks to inquire about the IIUD. Consequently, to achieve this intent, the capability to take advantage from self-criticism techniques must be inquired. Aforementioned helps to explore the meanings, concepts, and linkage with IIUD through an area of specialization. In addition to, identifying what the abilities and methods are to measure, and how to integrate into theoretical instruction and learning by practice. This work employ the concepts of intellectual human capital, knowledge management, cognitive style, learning style, and the notion of urban design paradigm and theory. Using it as a framework to decode the talisman (or myth) of the intellectual illiteracy in the field of interdisciplinary urban design and decantation of its manifestations. Moreover, identifying the measurement of the intellectual ability and use it to be the integration between the school of education and learning experience through practice. Attempts will be presented to cover the relationship between illiteracy and intellectual capacity. The major dilemma is whether professional experts in the field of urban design will accept a paradigm shift in the area of specialization or if they will reject it. At the end of this book submission a declaration or an Egyptian document written (Manifesto), to formulate some guidelines for the development of the work of some researchers, scholars and specialists method. It concludes by formulating some suggestions for developing the working style of investigators in the direction of improving the intellectual ability/capacity. As well as, to accept the transformations, as well as how to get rid of the intellectual illiteracy in the field of urban design interdisciplinary.

Book Summary:

In The Art of the City Raffaele Milani reflects on the ways in which inhabitants of the cityscape have interacted on a spiritual, psychological, and philosophical level with the architecture that surrounds them. Working with the premise that the city has a “soul,” which is externalized in the physical structures of its urban space, Milani expresses alarm in the face of sprawling megacities that typify the postmodern age and endanger the survival of cities’ distinctiveness. While he laments that the nature surrounding cities is disappearing under concrete, his concern is counterbalanced by the realization that there are ongoing projects of urban reclamation, renewal, and reutilization aimed at preserving an ancient, almost mystical rapport between the citizen and the lived space. Milani illustrates his argument by citing the works of modern architects including Emilio Ambasz, Massimiliano Fuksas, Frank Gehry, Rem Koolhaas, Kisho Kurokawa, Daniel Libeskind, and Renzo Piano. Rather than a history of architecture, The Art of the City is a compelling and timely reflection on the important challenge of insuring the continued liveability and aesthetic valorization of public spaces.

Book Summary:

Is there something compelling that a series of cutting-edge art interventions exploring public space in Johannesburg can tell us about cities, imagination and the public sphere? Kim Gurney reflects upon New Imaginaries to explore the connection: curated through walking and the poetics of migration; via gaming, punk technologies and play; and performance art activating transport lines. The projects link city space to the public sphere to render otherwise illegible urban forms and flows. In so doing, they suggest public space as common space instead, public art towards an art of the commons. This musically inflected book includes a snapshot of recent performance art in central Johannesburg, a silo-breaking chapter on artists and uncertainty and a closing track to place the author in situ. The account ultimately positions itself as a public policy riposte in favour of economic invisibility- that art counts even when it cannot be counted.

Book Summary:

To Henri Lefebvre, the space and 'lived everydayness' of the inter-dependent, multi-faceted city produces manifold possibilities of identifiction and realisation through often imperceptible interactions and practices. 'Art and the City' takes this observation as its cue to examine the role of art against a backdrop of globally rising urban populations, taking into account the more recent performative and relational 'turns' of art that have sought in their city settings to identify a participating spectator - an implicated citizen. In exploring how artworks present themselves as a means by which to navigate and plot the city for a writing interlocutor, Nicolas Whybrow discusses diverse examples, representing three key modern modalities of urban arts practice. The first, walking, involves works by Richard Wentworth, Francis AlA s, Mark Walllinger and others, the second, play, includes art by Antony Gormley, Mark Quinn and Carsten Holler. The third, cultural memory, Whybrow addresses through the controversial urban holocaust memorial sites of Peter Eisenman's memorial in Berlin and Rachel Whiteread's in Vienna.

Book Summary:

City-making is an art, not a formula. The skills required to re-enchant the city are far wider than the conventional ones like architecture, engineering and land-use planning. There is no simplistic, ten-point plan, but strong principles can help send good city-making on its way. The vision for 21st century cities must be to be the most imaginative cities for the world rather than in the world. This one change of word - from 'in' to 'for' - gives city-making an ethical foundation and value base. It helps cities become places of solidarity where the relations between the individual, the group, outsiders to the city and the planet are in better alignment. Following the widespread success of The Creative City, this new book, aided by international case studies, explains how to reassess urban potential so that cities can strengthen their identity and adapt to the changing global terms of trade and mass migration. It explores the deeper fault-lines, paradoxes and strategic dilemmas that make creating the 'good city' so difficult.

Book Summary:

Walled City makes plain why large-scale outdoor paintings have become so widely admired and accepted. The level of talent, skill and execution has elevated the oversized mural in our collective consciousness. Featuring the best work of more than 40 artists from every corner of the planet, Walled City clearly shows that large scale murals have established themselves as a new pillar of urbanism. The installation processes are often as interesting as the paintings themselves. These intrepid artists deftly utilize paintbrushes, spray cans, stencils and wheat paste to install their work, often risking life and limb. Outdoor paintings and murals arent a new phenomenon, but their scale importance to contemporary visual culture is clearly on the rise.

Book Summary:

"Fatimid art and architecture has always been somewhat anomalous in the history of islamic art because of the direction it grew (west to east), subject matter (figural at a time when geometry and the arabesque were developing elsewhere), and unusually rich and precise documentation in royal and popular accounts. Whereas earlier studies treated the two and a half centuries of Fatimid art and architecture as a single category, this book is the first to show how they grew and evolved over time."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Summary:

The current climate surrounding contemporary art production--including recent curatorial and exhibition practices--is especially marked by an ongoing expansion of the field across disciplinary boundaries and beyond the conventional spaces of display and reception. This expanding field of artistic production spreads in multiple directions, an expanding universe without any definite center or edge. In addition, there is a considerable amount of contemporary art production today that has shifted away from notions of objecthood, wherein artists take the very nature of human relations itself as the source material for the undertaking of a project or research initiative, developing works that are very much defined by their processes of coming-into-being and points of reception. Concomitantly, in recent years there have been a number of exhibitions predicated on the idea of the city as an integral protagonist in the exhibition process, in which artists are invited to develop projects in dialogue with the inhabitants, spaces, cultural milieu, etc., of the host city. Focusing on the notions of collaboration, improvisation, representation, and community, this analysis seeks to scrutinize and question such practices in their layering of both sociopolitical and aesthetic qualities. An analysis of two recent exhibitions: ciudadMULTIPLEcity, Panama City, Panama; and the 9th International Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul, Turkey--along with select examples of socially engaged, collaborative public art projects within--will explore the multivalent and ultimately contingent nature of such practices. By making the invisible visible (i.e. social tensions, power dynamics, marginalized groups of individuals), these projects create situations that embody what French philosophers Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe have termed "radical democracy" through the activation of an "agonistic public sphere." Yet, important questions remain: How does one evaluate the success or failure of these works? What is the actual value of such practices, both immediately and in the long-term? For whom are these works valuable? And what are the stakes and claims at the core of these projects? In order to address these questions, I have developed a set of criteria for the evaluation of these types of projects by engaging in the contemporary discourse surrounding socially engaged, collaborative public art practices. The main criteria points include: the relationship between the aesthetic qualities and the sociopolitical mode of address (as I have already mentioned); the issue of ethics; the relationship between artistic autonomy and collaborative modes of production; and finally the point of reception and afterlife of the various projects.
