La g om trie des motions
"À une époque où l'esthétique française affine son statut de discipline scientifique, les architectes convoquent à leur tour un ensemble aux frontières mouvantes, articulant physiologie sensorielle, psychologie ou sociologie, et perméable à des courants plus ésotériques. Jusqu'où ces savoirs guident-ils le projet d'une rationalisation des états affectifs engendrés par l'environnement bâti ? Comment s'ajustent-ils aux débats doctrinaux qui traversent le champ architectural? De César Daly à André Lurçat, cet ouvrage propose d'explorer ces tentatives visant à fonder une science de l'esthétique architecturale. De l'éclectisme stylistique au purisme géométrique, l'hypothèse d'un vocabulaire émotif de l'architecture se décline à partir de modélisations variées des processus de perception, d'associationnisme, des théories de l'empathie ou des conceptions mécanistes. Se construisent autant de méthodes d'analyse formelle, qui tendent à réduire l'architecture à des composantes géométriques. L'ouvrage révèle des continuités inattendues, entre culture beaux-arts et mouvement moderne; il met également en évidence les porosités des théories architecturales aux imaginaires scientifiques de leur temps."--P.  of cover.

Society of Individuals
Originally published in 1991 and now reissued by Continuum International, this book consists of three sections. The first, written in 1939, was either left out of Elias's most famous book, The Civilizing Process, or was written along with it. Part 2 was written between 1940 and 1960. Part 3 is from 1987. The entire book is a study of the unique relationship between the individual and society--Elias's best-known theme and the basis for the discipline of sociology.
Sustainable Urban Logistics Concepts Methods and Information Systems
Since the 1990’s, researchers, practitioners and public administrations have given more thought to urban logistics. However, their interests and goals are not the same, and several approaches do not produce efficient logistics systems as a result. This book aims to provide both a conceptual framework for urban logistics planning and management and to create a basis for deploying solutions that aim to reduce the main nuisances related to urban goods. The proposed book is divided in two parts. The first proposes a set of methodological chapters, written by key authors, which aim to support decision makers in their current choices related to urban logistics. In addition to public authorities’ aims and goals, the book highlights the importance of private actors, and shows how supply chain management can deal with the problems of the last urban mile and its integration in global logistics chains. The second presents several applied research works that deal with current planning and practice issues in urban logistics, such as the role of city planning, the place of night deliveries in carrier organization, the limits of logistics pooling, and the real estate market, among others. The book was written by key authors, all having considerable research experience and recognised as experts in their respective fields. Each chapter presents methods and results of research works, written for a broad audience, and more precisely directed to both academics and practitioners.

Architecture in Uniform
This fascinating book offers a new perspective on the architectural history of the Second World War, which in previous accounts has most often been viewed as a hiatus between peaceful periods of production. Jean-Louis Cohen contends instead that during the years between the bombings of Guernica in 1937 and of Hiroshima in 1945, specific advances were fundamental to the process of modernization and led to the definitive supremacy of modernism in architecture. Centering the discussion on ten main themes, the author investigates various aspects of architecture's mobilization in the war years, as well as the trajectories of individual architects. He analyzes architectural developments worldwide and takes into account each of the major participants in the war, including the United States, Japan, Great Britain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, and the Soviet Union. The book not only focuses on plans, buildings, and technological inventions but also examines the many types of visual representation used for war purposes, enhanced by a rich array of more than 300 illustrations.
