Beyond The West inspires a fresh understanding of global contemporary architecture beyond the Western Countries. Architects throughout the world work against a backdrop of rapidly growing cities, changing societies and climate, and emerging economies. But while Western architecture has largely dominated the discourse, architecture firms from non-Western countries have been establishing local and global -recognition for themselves, often finding strikingly different solutions to local requirements, including sustainability, transportation and migration, construction materials, and traditions. Beyond The West journeys across Asia, Africa, and the Americas to under-stand how local architects respond to a changing world, and focuses its wide lens on inspiring and truly global architecture.

Building spaces of equilibrium: Norm Architects' humane simplicity creates environments that feel as good as they look. Guided by ideas of wellbeing, the essence of Norm Architects' style is balance: richness focused by restraint, simplicity imbued with warmth, complexity heightened by order. Be it architecture, interiors, or furniture, Norm's unique brand of soft minimalism speaks to the mind as much as the body, creating spaces for people. The first monograph by Norm Architects, Soft Minimal is their own curation of works that have made them key figures of Nordic design. It presents residential and commercial projects throughout Scandinavia, Italy and Japan as Norm reflect on Nordic traditions, modernist principles, and the importance of natural materials. Exploring a creative process that makes the visual speak to all senses, the book becomes insightful, inspirational, and deeply poetic.

In recent years, the beauty industry has shifted the conversation towards the individual in a way it hasn't done before. While people, and women in particular, have historically been enticed into this industry to achieve rather rigid ideals set by society, the current conversations brands and consumers are establishing embrace individuality and celebrate identity. From using makeup as a means to challenge gender, to the link between hairstyling and community-building, or the rituals of skincare as a form of self-care, we are rediscovering beauty as a way of defining who we are and what we value. Modern Beauty explores this shift from historical, scientific and journalistic perspectives, in a title that will not only appeal to industry insiders, but also to all those readers with an interest in feeling well in their own skin - and letting the world know. What to expect: - A contemporary look at the universe of beauty, as told by New York Times wellness and beauty writer Kari Molvar. - A relevant insight for those linked to the beauty industry, which is in a moment of transformation, as concepts such as wellness, feminism and inclusivity become equally important. - An exploration that goes beyond the superficial and presents beauty from historical, scientific and journalistic perspectives.

A journey through dreamlike landscapes, bizarre buildings, and whimsical interiors floating between reality and fantasy. Oscar Wilde claimed that "progress is the realization of utopia." Dreamscapes illustrates utopian visions and invites the reader into otherworldly scenes that manifest visions of idealised worlds, offering a path toward a better future. The showcased pieces blur the lines between practical applications for architecture and design, abstract artistic expressions, and expand the possibilities of architecture, interior, and set design. The book presents the work of leading creatives from across the globe, exploring the infinite ways to visualize landscapes and the built environment. With their roots in spatial design, their ideas present a new creative current defined by the fusion of digital techniques such as computer rendering and 3D art, and an aesthetic that moves between fantasy and reality. WHAT TO EXPECT - The first illustrated book to present the work of the artists and creatives at the forefront of this aesthetic, which gained momentum as a social media phenomenon. - An insightful and pioneering look at the world of digital art, which will undoubtedly define the future of creativity. - An inspiring compilation that will serve as a reference for both artists and professionals in the fields of architecture and design.
