The Feminist Architecture Of Postmodern Anti Tales Book Description

by Kendra Reynolds, The Feminist Architecture Of Postmodern Anti Tales Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Feminist Architecture Of Postmodern Anti Tales books, This monograph aims to counter the assumption that the anti-tale is a ‘subversive twin’ or dark side of the fairy tale coin, instead it argues that the anti-tale is a genre rich in complexity and radical potential that fundamentally challenges the damaging ideologies and socializing influence of fairy tales. The Feminist Architecture of Postmodern Anti-Tales: Space, Time and Bodies highlights how anti-tales take up timely debates about revising old structures, opening our minds up to a broader spectrum of experience or ways of viewing the world and its inhabitants. They show us alternative architectures for the future by deconstructing established spatio-temporal laws and structures, as well as limited ideas surrounding the body, and ultimately liberate us from the shackles of a single-minded and simplistic masculine reality currently upheld by dominant social forces and patriarchal fairy tales themselves. It is only when these masculine fairy tales and social architectures are deconstructed that new, more inclusive feminine realities and futures can be brought into being.

Fairy Tale Review Book Description

by Kate Bernheimer, Fairy Tale Review Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fairy Tale Review books, The Translucent Issue is a break from tradition. In some ways, colors are an easier, more obvious entry point into the world of fairy tales. It is not transparent, and thus never explicit on the page—the Brothers Grimm rarely editorialized—but then again psychology is rarely explicit. It is a partial view, one that permits shape and light, but not clarity, not exactness; it is a half-truth, one that includes what is as often as it includes what could be; it is the fantasy of wish, and the dubious luxury of pretense. Fairy-tale psychology is not clarified through the use of interiority or analysis, but by situation, circumstance. It is illuminated by what is seen and, just as importantly, what is not.

Fairy Tale Architecture Book Description

by Andrew Bernheimer, Fairy Tale Architecture Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fairy Tale Architecture books, Fairy Tale Architecture is a ground-breaking book, the first study to bring architects in conversation with fairy tales in breathtaking designs. Little Red Riding Hood, Baba Yaga, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Snow Queen: these and more than fifteen other stories designed by Bernheimer Architecture, Snøhetta, Rural Studio, LEVENBETTS, and LTL Architects and many other international vanguards have created stunning works for this groundbreaking collection of architectural fairy tales. Story by story, Andrew Bernheimer and Kate Bernheimer--a brother and sister team as in an old fairy tale--have built the ultimate home for lovers of fiction and design. Snow girls and spinning houses. Paper capes and engineered hair braids. Resin bee hives and infinite libraries. Here are futuristic structures made from traditional stories, inspired by everything from Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen and The Little Match Girl to the Brothers Grimm's Rapunzel and The Juniper Tree to fairy tales by Jorge Luis Borges and Joy Williams and from China, Japan, Russia, Nigeria, and Mexico. A desire for story and shelter counts as among our most ancient instincts, and this dual desire continues to inspire our most imaginative architects and authors today. Fairy Tale Architecture invites the reader into a space of wonder, into a new form that will endure ever after.

Winesburg Indiana Book Description

by Michael Martone, Winesburg Indiana Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Winesburg Indiana books, In the mythical town of Winesburg, Indiana, there lives a cleaning lady who can conjure up the ghost of Billy Sunday, a lascivious holy man with an unusual fetish and a burgeoning flock, a park custodian who collects the scat left by aliens, and a night janitor learning to live with life’s mysteries, including the zombies in the cafeteria. Winesburg, Indiana, is a town full of stories of plans made and destroyed, of births and unexpected deaths, of remembered pasts and unexplored presents told to the reader by as interesting a cast of characters as one is likely to find in small town America. Brought to life by a lively group of Indiana writers, Winesburg, Indiana, is a place to discover something of what it means to be alive in our hyperactive century from stories that are deeply human, sometimes melancholy, and often damned funny.
