-An important monograph outlining the design and production of the Antinory Winery in Chianti Classico This updated third edition of a classic book shows the Antinori Windery, located in the extraordinary hilly landscape covered by the vineyards of Chianti, halfway between Florence and Siena. The client required a building that enhanced the surrounding landscape and territory, and bore witness to the cultural and social valence of the places where wine is made. The conceptual theme of the project has taken the form of a shell that is wholly below ground, without roofs, walls, streets and parking spaces, according to a design which attempts a difficult but necessary reconcilement between the natural and the artificial. It is precisely the story of this constant research, of the indispensable connection between architecture and landscape, which represents the fulcrum on which the whole of this book pivots. Hundreds of photographs have immortalized years of work on the site, telling the story of all the phases that have made it possible to realize this extraordinary project. The images, along with numerous technical drawings on every scale, critical and descriptive texts, illustrate the design process that has led to the construction of a new landscape.

Elemental Architecture presents a new and refreshing approach to sustainable architectural practice. Going beyond the standard performance-based and quantitative sustainable measures, it incorporates a broader framework of considerations, including the more poetic and noetic possibilities of environmental design. The book is structured around the ancient Greek and medieval alchemists’ system of the Five Temperaments: fire, earth, air, water, and ether. Phillip James Tabb examines how these elements produce both positive and negative environmental forces which have an impact on architectural design – from drinking water and fresh air to torrential floods and tornados. He shows how responding to or enhancing these forces can help us to create a more sustainable, healthy, and purposeful architecture. To illustrate this, each chapter draws on seminal contemporary works of architecture, from Peter Zumthor’s Bruder-Klaus Field Chapel to Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece at Fallingwater. These examples are accompanied by over a hundred high-quality illustrations. Expanding the discussion of sustainability to include phenomenological as well as qualitative considerations, Elemental Architecture is ideal for students and researchers with an interest in sustainable architecture and architectural theory.

Archea practices at the intersection of art, architecture and the factory. The architects collaborate with living artists and with artists from the past, and they develop a relationship not only with a material but also with its fabricators. In a symbiotic working relationship, the Archea studio and factories with which it collaborates trade knowledge and invention, the factory performing invaluable research that would normally be outside an architect's purview and financial reach.
