Dieses essential behandelt die vier wichtigsten Themenfelder der Denkmalpflege, die in ihren Grundzügen dargestellt werden: Geschichte, Organisation, Praxis und Forschung. Christian Raabe zeigt in einem kurzen Abriss der Geschichte, wie sich Wertebegriffe und die Institutionalisierung der Denkmalpflege historisch entwickelt haben. Es folgen eine Darstellung der Aufgaben und Strukturen der nationalen und internationalen Organisation des Denkmalschutzes, Hinweise zum rechtlichen Umfeld und Handlungsempfehlungen zur praktischen Denkmalpflege nebst einer Übersicht der Fördermöglichkeiten. Diese praxisnahe Einführung schließt der Autor mit einer Erläuterung der Ziele und Methoden der historischen Bauforschung ab.

Das öffentliche Interesse an der Debatte über die Rekonstruktion von Baudenkmalen könnte erlahmen, nachdem es konservativen Politikern, Sprechern von konservativen pressure groups, Tourismusmanagern und insbesondere den Machern der Ausstellung „Geschichte der Rekonstruktion – Konstruktion der Geschichte“, Pinakothek der Moderne (München, 22. Juli - 31.Oktober 2010) gelungen zu sein scheint, sie als müßigen Prinzipienstreit unter Denkmalpflegern zu marginalisieren. Wozu, könnte die Rekonstruktionslobby fragen, eine Debatte fortsetzen, nachdem doch weithin Einverständnis darüber zu herrschen scheint, daß die Rekonstruktion untergegangener Bausubstanz einfach eine Selbstverständlichkeit ist? Die in der Reihe Bauwelt Fundamente erscheinende Publikation gegen das Rekonstruieren von Baudenkmalen tritt dem Mainstream in streitbarer Absicht entgegen. Als Plädoyer gegen die Simulation historischer Bausubstanz will sie die Rekonstruktionsdebatte in der Bundesrepublik inhaltlich beleben.

When Time Began
Author: Zecharia Sitchin
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Night and day, month after month, year after year, our ancestors dutifully recorded the passage of time on clay tablets, watching the heavens from stage towers and pyramids and from megalithic monuments whose incredible size and precise architecture boggle the mind. . . . Who were the builders of these mysterious structures? What was their purpose? Whose signature is indelibly written on these timeless stones, and who was the Divine Architect? Why was Stonehenge and its likes built by ancient civilizations at the very same time--4,100 years ago? What is their message for our time? With these questions in mind, Zecharia Sitchin, renowned researcher of past ages, takes us on a journey through the records of time in this, the fifth book of his Earth Chronicles series. Drawing deeply on Sumerian and Egyptian writings, millenia-old artifacts, and sacred architecture ranging from ancient Mesopotamia to pre-Columbian civilizations in the Americas, this bestselling scholar provides astounding insights into the origins of the calendar, astronomy, and astrology. He takes readers to the climax circa 2100 b.c. when Marduk, the Babylonian national god, attained supremacy on Earth and proclaimed the New Age of Aries--after which society, religion, science, and the status of women were never the same.

Masterful Form Balance meets movement in the structures of Santiago Calatrava Santiago Calatrava is a world-renowned architect, structural engineer, sculptor, and artist. From the Athens 2004 Olympic Sports Complex to the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in Manhattan, he exhibits a remarkable aesthetic and engineering prowess with a simultaneous sensitivity for both the appearance and the anatomy of a structure. With influences ranging from NASA space design to da Vinci's nature studies, Calatrava's creations are at once aerodynamic and organic in their associations. Natural forms and human movements inform a number of his projects, with a particular interest in the meeting point of equilibrium and dynamism. This updated monograph gathers detailed entries, photography, and the original watercolor sketches that set Calatrava aside as a unique creative master. It includes all of Calatrava's original collaborative input, as well as new projects including the Mediopadana Station in Reggio Emilia, Italy, the Museum of Tomorrow in Rio de Janeiro, and ongoing works like the UAE Pavilion at Expo 2020 in Dubai. Text in English, French, and German
Lucius Burckhardt (1925-2003) taught architectural theory at Kassel University and, in the 1980s, coined the term "Promenadology" or the science of Strollology and developed this into a complex and far-sighted planning and design discipline. Given that "the landscape" as an idea only exists in our heads, Burckhardt's writings (and drawings) are not so much concerned with beautiful vistas, but focus instead on the multi-faceted interaction a simple walk-taker has with his environment. To those who observe the environment with their eyes wide open, interesting questions will arise again and again; for example, why "city" and "country" can no longer be separated so easily in the face of progressive urbanization. Or why we consider a viaduct to be beautiful, but a nuclear power station an intrusion. And also, why gardens are works of art and should therefore be appraised as such. This book contains 28 texts by the design and planning critic, for the first time in English, with the focus on landscapes, gardens as an art form and the science of strollology.
