"Might there be kingdoms of creatures that look nothing like the children of earth, but who feel just like they do - sometimes happy, sometimes sad, and always delighted to play with their friends? Could it be perhaps, that in the realms behind the clouds all of our dreams are realized, and that is why the clouds change their shapes and sail in all directions?"Is it possible that the genial dwellers of the sky will one day visit our planet? This book is about Dr. Cloud, the traffic expert and his visit to Earth from high in the sky, in order to save this planet from the terrible plague of traffic accidents.Dr. Cloud, together with Prince Bussik who loves cars and Prince Gogol who loves soccer, is the third book in the series about the wonderful friendship that began in the tale of "The Journeys of Bussik, Prince of the White Clouds" and continued in the story of "The Journeys of Gogol Prince of the Gray Clouds".

Applying Properties of Animals Skins to Inspire Architectural Envelopes Biology influences design projects in many ways; the related discipline is known as biomimetics or biomimicry. Using the animal kingdom as a source of inspiration, Ilaria Mazzoleni seeks to instill a shift in thinking about the application of biological principles to design and architecture. She focuses on the analysis of how organisms have adapted to different environments and translates the learned principles into the built environment. To illustrate the methodology, Mazzoleni draws inspiration from the diversity of animal coverings, referred to broadly as skin, and applies them to the design of building envelopes through a series of twelve case studies. Skin is a complex organ that performs a multitude of functions; namely, it serves as a link between the body and the environment. Similarly, building envelopes act as interfaces between their inhabitants and external elements. The resulting architectural designs illustrate an integrative methodology that allows architecture to follow nature. "Ilaria Mazzoleni, in collaboration with biologist Shauna Price, has developed a profound methodology for architectural and design incentives that anticipates and proposes novel ways to explore undiscovered biological inspirations for various audiences." —Yoseph Bar-Cohen

Ornament is currently acquiring a renewed status in architecture. As contemporary technologies of design and fabrication introduce unprecedented opportunities to intertwine the constructive logics and expressive articulations of buildings, ornament has re-emerged as a means to explore the interactions between function and decoration, volume and surface, structure and envelope. This book gives a systematic account of the technologies employed in the production of ornament and the strategies of its application today, examining a range of international built examples. Architects with particularly advanced approaches to the question of ornament contribute reports and reflections on their experiences: Sam Jacob of Fashion Architecture Taste (FAT), London; Andreas Hild of Hild und K Architekten, Munich; and Alejandro Zaera-Polo of Foreign Office Architects (FOA), London.

When the newly formed Northwest Mounted Police marched west in 1874, Canada was a young country with vast and wild western territories. This is an exciting account of the turbulent early days of the Force. The book tells not only of the larger-than-life characters who were instrumental in peace-making with Native peoples, but also sheds light on the unsung heroes who risked and sometimes lost their lives travelling incredible distances across the frozen North to save lives and enforce justice. The book vividly illustrates why the RCMP has become such an enduring Canadian symbol.

"The truth is, decorative art is equipment, beautiful equipment," Le Corbusier, L'Art decoratif d'aujourd'hui This book traces the history of an encounter between a remarkable invention, half-industrial half-design object, and one of the most famous architects of the 20th century. Created in 1921, the Gras lamp holds a unique place in the history of lighting. A revolutionary design of marvelous simplicity, its original purpose was to meet the needs of the booming manufacturing and retail sectors. The young Le Corbusier, passionate about the challenges of interior lighting, adopted it as his own from the early 1920s on. Thanks to its remarkable functionality, this lamp also perfectly corresponded to his desire to break with decoration and ornament, and the architect went on to utilize it in his studio in the rue de Sevres in Paris as well as his home. He also placed it in many of the interiors of the houses he designed: the Villa Le Lac (Switzerland), the Villa La Roche (Paris), the Guiette House (Antwerp), the Villa Savoye (Poissy), and the villa belonging to his friend Eileen Gray in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. Relying on rich photographic documentation from the period, the book goes through the history of the Gras lamp, its patents and various models, but it also enables the reader to rediscover Le Corbusier's interior designs through the prism of this icon of design, as he was one of this lamp's main promoters in modern times. Text in English and French. Contents: Preface, Antoine Picon; Le Corbusier and "the law of light" Arthur Ruegg; The Lamp and the Architect; Le Corbusier: For daily use; The Studio in the rue de Sevres; Private homes; A Restoration story; Le Corbusier's Designs; Introduction; Villa Le Lac, "little house," Corseaux near Vevey (Switzerland), 1923; La Roche-Jeanneret house, Paris, 1925; Guiette House, Antwerp, 1926; Villa Savoye, "Clear Hours," Poissy, 1929-1931; Swiss Pavilion, Cite Universitaire, Paris, 1931-1933; Visiting Eileen Gray; Bibliography; Chronology."

Costumes for dancers have exacting requirements. They have to look the part but let the dancers move freely. They need to be strong enough to cope with the wear and tear of performances and stresses that dance can place on seams and darts, and yet be light enough to flow well and to allow the dancer to move and breathe. This well-illustrated book shows how to start making costumes for dancers. The author looks at different styles, cuts and materials that can be used, and shows how costume sketches can be translated into actual garments to suit the dancer's needs.
