When you hear the word "desert," what do you think of? If you imagine more than just endless sand, heat, and emptiness, Jürgen Wettke's The Namib Desert is the perfect photo book for you. With an excellent eye for unusual structures and colors, Wettke invigorates our imagination and shows us that the desert is a place of unexpected variety. There are only a few landscapes on earth like Namibia where shapes and colors change so rapidly while giving such an immediate feel for how our world originally came to be. Jürgen Wettke has masterfully captured this ambivalence on film and preserved once-in-a-lifetime moments of ephemeral beauty.

New York in black-and-white from the master photographer Serge Ramelli Breathtaking new perspectives of this fabled city Discover photographic masterpieces of a stunningly beautiful metropolis Black-and-white urban photography has a unique effect: It can lend a historical feel or bring out perspectives and surfaces in a special way. Serge Ramelli’s New York photos do both—and much more. With his film director’s eye, he searches out locations using parameters that evoke a specific atmosphere and build tension. The New York skyline or typical New York street scenes are stylized into a stage—but a stage where nothing is required to happen. Their impressiveness is so heightened that a movie automatically plays in the viewer’s head. With New York boasting so much history and evocativeness, nothing more is needed. Although he is similar to Ansel Adams in technique and expression, Serge Ramelli is a contemporary photographer in every sense of the word, constantly experimenting with new technical options. After Paris, New York was Serge Ramelli’s choice of second instalment for his photographic diptych of contemporary cityscapes, and it’s certainly no coincidence that the photographer selected this super-sized city as the subject of his second book. How could he fail—he, the self-taught photographer—to pay homage to this, the city of the willing, the self-made men, and the resourceful? And how could this great lover of cinema have chosen any other backdrop or any other film location than that of the Big Apple, made immortal by more than a century of legendary cinematography? An eager lover of dramatic imagery, Serge Ramelli is constantly on the lookout for spectacular lighting, whether natural or artificial, and with its gigantic advertising and garish boards New York is an almost perfect city for such a hunt.

This book brings together a diverse range of exemplary architectural projects from across the globe. Carefully selected and examined by a team of experts, these projects demonstrate innovative approaches that respond to the challenges and potentials of contemporary conditions and contexts. One guiding principle of this cycle of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture is the importance of plurality. Since its inception the Award has aimed to be inclusive and to embrace the engagement of a diverse group of users. But equally, it has sought projects that explore a plurality of methods and architectures in achieving that goal. Here, the authors of the essays use that productive tension between architecture and plurality not only to provide a framework for the examination of the projects but also to explore the intellectual and projective means by which architecture and plurality can find other common grounds in the future.

A new architectural trend has appeared, mobile homes which can be transported, some are built on wheels, turning into rolling houses in the most literal sense of the word. Others can be easily carried on a truck and be moved to the places their owners desire. Tiny houses, of less than 20 m2, where the main space is at the same time kitchen and living room, which tend to have a small loft for the bedroom and where there is no place for things which don´t have an essential use, giving their owner the necessary comfort.
