From the ruins of conflict, the Belle Epoque brought joie de vivre flourish, a boom in art, design, industry, technology, gastronomy, education, travel, entertainment, and nightlife. Through some vintage photographs, postcards, posters, and photochromes from the extensive archives of Marc Walter and Photovintagefrance, France around follows up on TASCHEN's best-selling vintage photographic collections Italy around , The Grand Tour, Germany around , and American Odyssey to provide a precious record of France in all its turn-of-the-century glory. With the photochrome technique used in many of the images restoring the past to vivid color, we enjoy a bristling close, bittersweet, encounter with this hopeful age: the brave, stony splendor of the Mont Saint Michel; the icy peaks of Chamonix; and the honey light of the Cote d'Azur. With an introduction, six essays, and detailed commentary by Sabine Arque exploring the stories behind the pictures, France around is an unrivalled portrait of a nation on the cusp of the century and of its poignant exuberance before the paroxysm of the First World War. While paying tribute to this precious Belle Epoque moment that was crushed by the traumas of history, it also celebrates the unwavering allure of La Belle France, its beauty, culture, traditions, and legendary romance.
Particularly at stake is the place and space of visual artistic practice. Content is full of artistic appropriations. The setting is a fashion parade, where a darkened audience is enraptured by a central model on the catwalk, whose figure emits a whitened light and whose digitally doubled image acts as a halo.
Art and theory are present, apparently, but they just happen to be in the service of the commercial interests of companies such as Gucci and Prada. As history is raided for such pithy headlines, both context and content are emptied of meaning.
In Critique of Cynical Reason , philosopher Peter Sloterdijk describes this kind of cynicism as the defining feature of the contemporary world. Related Papers. The family lived consecutively in Rotterdam until , Amsterdam — , Jakarta — , and Amsterdam from When the war of independence was won, he was invited over to run a cultural programme for three years and the family moved to Jakarta in They were later joined by one of Koolhaas's students, Zaha Hadid — who would soon go on to achieve success in her own right.
An early work which would mark their difference from the then dominant postmodern classicism of the late s, was their contribution to the Venice Biennale of , curated by Italian architect Paolo Portoghesi , titled "Presence of the Past".
Other early critically received yet unbuilt projects included the Parc de la Villette , Paris and the residence for the Prime Minister of Ireland , as well as the Kunsthal in Rotterdam These schemes would attempt to put into practice many of the findings Koolhaas made in his book Delirious New York ,  which was written while he was a visiting scholar at the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York, directed by Peter Eisenman.
Koolhaas celebrates the "chance-like" nature of city life: "The City is an addictive machine from which there is no escape" "Rem Koolhaas As Koolhaas himself has acknowledged, this approach had already been evident in the Japanese Metabolist Movement in the s and early s.
Seattle Central Library Seattle, USA, designed by OMA A key aspect of architecture that Koolhaas interrogates is the " Program ": with the rise of modernism in the 20th century the "Program" became the key theme of architectural design.
The notion of the Program involves "an act to edit function and human activities" as the pretext of architectural design: epitomised in the maxim form follows function , first popularised by architect Louis Sullivan at the beginning of the 20th century.
The notion was first questioned in Delirious New York, in his analysis of high-rise architecture in Manhattan.
An early design method derived from such thinking was "cross-programming", introducing unexpected functions in room programmes, such as running tracks in skyscrapers. More recently, Koolhaas unsuccessfully proposed the inclusion of hospital units for the homeless into the Seattle Public Library project The layout of the huge book transformed architectural publishing, and such books—full-colour graphics and dense texts—have since become common.
Ostensibly, S,M,L,XL gives a record of the actual implementation of "Manhattanism" throughout the various mostly unrealized projects and texts OMA had generated up to that time.
The part lexicon-type layout with a marginal "dictionary" composed by Jennifer Sigler , who also edited the book spawned a number of concepts that have become common in later architectural theory, in particular "Bigness": 'old' architectural principles composition, scale, proportion, detail no longer apply when a building acquires Bigness.
This was demonstrated in OMA's scheme for the development of " Euralille " —94 , a new centre for the city of Lille in France, a city returned to prominence by its position on the new rail route from Paris to London via the Channel Tunnel.
