A renowned architect and artist on how public architecture in our cities has lost contact with the lives of the common people. Behind the seemingly ordinary life of a practising architect lies a whole host of non-professional impulses that give shape to buildings. Stories of Storeys: Art, Architecture and the City is about these impulses and conditions—social, literate, personal and political—which are expressed, but often ignored in architecture. Bhatia looks at the ordinary, physical, visible and tactile involvement of our urban environment and the way it affects, communicates with, or influences us. An all-inclusive sociology of architecture, the book draws on the social life of some of architecture’s role players, people whose peculiar demands on design have come to characterize the building environment of our times, and times that are characterized by this progressive isolation of architecture from the society of common people.

Architecture can revitalize, spark rural self-confidence, and turn wasteland into a welcoming space--and it can do it at a low cost. This is the mission statement of architect Xu Tiantian, founder and principal of Beijing-based studio Design and Architecture (DnA). In 2014, Xu began to work in the remote Songyang County in China's Zhejiang Province. Her holistic concept does not engage in erasing existing structures but is instead guided by the concept of Architectural Acupuncture, which prefers smaller interventions to extensive redevelopments, and which has gained much recognition as a model for similar regions around the world. For Xu, architecture as a language should address the traditions of Songyang County--each solution is unique; only the small budget is common to all of them. Yet all of them are interrelated and serve the broader goal of mutual enhancement. The Songyang Story introduces Xu's concept of Architectural Acupuncture and discusses the influence of architecture on cultural self-understanding and economic renewal in twenty-first-century rural China. Richly illustrated, it features some twenty new buildings and conversions of existing structures with diverse functions. These interventions work in the local context and greatly affect Songyang County's social fabric, housing, culture, industry, agriculture, landscape conservation, and tourism. Published alongside the illustrations are essays by international economists, sociologists, and curators as well as by the secretary of the Songyang County Party Committee, examining the social, political, and economic implications of sustainable planning and collective action in the Chinese province.

Dreams and Schemes: Stories of People and Architecture is a non-fiction book about an architect as he learns his profession through his encounters with the many different people involved in the design and construction of buildings. It is filled interesting experiences as it describes through the use of more than 70 true stories, the broad spectrum of people with whom an architect may interact during the course of his/her practice. These include clients, partners, builders, consultants, union officials, lawyers, building department employees, government workers, foreign building officials, students, and the owners and users of the buildings. Each encounter is a learning experience, relating to some major or minor event in architecture, and almost always exposing some related human emotion or condition. The stories vary widely in content and serve as windows into the lives of people as they deal with each other, their architects or the many others involved in thecomplex process of turning dreams into reality. It is these many experiences that fill the book with interest and insights into the people involved in creating their built environment. Why write an architectural book about people? Because people are at the essential core of architecture. Without people there would not be architecture. Unlike a painter or sculptor who can practice their art alone their studio, the architect needs people to whom to respond. Yet very little has been written about this most important element of architectural practice. This book takes the reader on a journey through a life in architecture, sharing with them the emotional highs and lows that an architect may experience in his/her day-to-day working with people of varied backgrounds and desires in this creative art. The author is convinced that this human factor involved in the creation of architecture is central to its success and is quite often more interesting than the building that results. Each chapter in the book is filled with personal anecdotes gathered from the author´s more than 50 years in architecture as a practitioner, government official, teacher and consultant. The story topics will appeal to a wide range of interest. For readers interested in the world around them, the book will be revealing of how the built enironment is created and how it affects and is influenced by people. For architects and those entering the profession, the chapters will provide understandings of the thought processes of those with whom they interact. For clients, builders and building-users, they will find a further understanding of the design and construction process. And everyone should find fascination in seeing how others live their lives.
