What is the Point of Architecture
By Philip Gumuchdjian
Sensing Place is a reflection on 20 years of Gumuchdjian Architects in practice. The principal architect, Philip Gumuchdjian sets out the thinking behind his projects with a view to re-stating the relevance of architecture in an increasingly virtual, image driven world. The book is thus a manual designed to guide the general public through the many concurrent and competing ideas that underpin a typical body of architectural work. These include the importance of keeping the culture of the past closely with us; the imperative of instilling buildings with the capacity to connect people to places; and how shared space is the real engine of community.
Big Farms, Little Farms is the latest in the Big & Little series. It takes children on a journey through all aspects of farming – the big animals, the small animals, and all the typical farm machinery, especially tractors.
It tells interesting facts about animals and breeds as well as explaining what each farm machine does.
