As the world's population swells and the need for sustainable ways of living grows ever more urgent and obvious, prefabricated architecture has taken center stage. Even before our current predicaments, the mass-produced, factory-made home had a distinguished history, having served as a vital precept in the development of Modern architecture. Today, with the digital revolution reorganizing the relationship between drafting board and factory, it continues to spur innovative manufacturing and design, and its potential has clearly not yet come to fruition. "Home Delivery" traces the history of prefabrication in architecture, from its early roots in colonial cottages though the work of such figures as Jean Prouve and Buckminster Fuller, and mass-produced variants such as the Lustron house, to a group of full-scale contemporary houses commissioned specifically for the MoMA exhibition that this book accompanies. In addition to an introductory essay by Barry Bergdoll, Chief Curator in the Museum's Department of Architecture and Design, this volume contains essays on prefabricated housing in Japan and in Nordic countries by Ken Tadashi Oshima and Rasmus Waern, respectively. It also includes focused texts on approximately 40 historical projects and five commissions, as well as a bibliography.
After much strife and struggle, humanity has finally achieved peace on Earth under one unified nation: the World Union. But can peace be maintained? A figure has emerged, planning a revolution that will lead the world back into chaos on a road of betrayal. A mysterious, technologically-advanced society calling itself the ARM X and a group of anti-revolutionaries are targeted as they rise to crush the seeds of the coup. A young soldier, Adam Jhen, is pulled into the conflict and finds his life forever changed. A war is about to erupt that will warp the foundation of the world's leadership unless the insurgency can be put to rest. But a threat beyond imagination lies just on the horizon, and the ARM X's true purpose shall finally be revealed.
Ernst Dronke (1822-1891) was a lawyer by training who used his literary and journalistic skills to promote the idea that a drastic change was needed in the structure of German society. The first part of this work is a revealing account of the life of this writer-revolutionary and confidant of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. The second part is a close examination of his prose writings. These works are literary documents of the social, political, economic, and ideological forces that led to the March Revolution of 1848, and represent his most significant contribution to German literature.
