Top 5 Film & Photography’s Background Architecture Books

1) Bashirul Haq Architect 

by Iftekhar Ahmed and Sheikh Rubaiya Sultana (Author)

Bashirul Haq is a Bangladeshi architect, critic and educator. He is undoubtedly one of the most critically acclaimed contemporary architects of South Asia. Haq is known for his ideological environment-responsive architectural style which has a deep-rooted connection with the local context expressed through a rich blend of tradition and modernity. Very few architects have been able to strike this fine balance between these two forces and a language that is contemporary yet responsive to local culture and climate. Bashirul Haq was born on 24th June 1942 at Bhatshala, Brahmanbaria, Bangladesh. He did his Bachelor of Architecture from National College of Arts, Lahore, Pakistan in 1964. He then received the John Heimrich Tuition, Scholarship and Teaching Assistantship at University of New Mexico, USA in 1971, and completed his Master of Architecture in 1975. He returned to Bangladesh and established Bashirul Haq & Associates in 1977. In the last four decades of his practice, Haq has designed several notable buildings that celebrate cultural roots, respect local context and are climate responsive. His quintessential design characteristic is sensitive use of local materials such as brick, concrete and natural wood.

2) Architecture: Form, Space, & Order

by Francis D. K. Ching  (Author)

For more than forty years, the beautifully illustrated Architecture: Form, Space, and Order has served as the classic introduction to the basic vocabulary of architectural design. The updated and revised Fourth Edition features the fundamental elements of space and form and is designed to encourage critical thought in order to promote a more evocative understanding of architecture.

Architecture: Form, Space, and Order distills complex concepts of design into a clear focus and brings difficult abstractions to life. The book explains form and space in relation to light, view, openings, and enclosures and explores the organization of space, and the elements and relationships of circulation, as well as proportion and scale. In addition, the text’s detailed illustrations demonstrate the concepts presented and reveal the relationships between fundamental elements of architecture through the ages and across cultures.

This edition includes an access card with a redemption code for the online Interactive Resource Center, which features thirty-five animations, flashcards of key architectural terms, and an image gallery showcasing hundreds of photos that enrich the book’s content.

3) MAD Works: MAD Architects

by Ma Yansong  (Author)

The skylines of modern China are punctuated by architecture that amazes, inspires, and awes. Many of these structures are the work of new, experimental practices like China-based MAD Architects. MAD Works not only documents the buildings of this group of avant-garde architects but also traces the development of their ideas through associated practice including art, research, and exhibition projects. Organized thematically, the book explores the underlying concepts of MAD Architects’ work. MAD Works is illustrated with photographs, architectural drawings, and 3D visualizations to provide a thorough exploration of MAD Architect’s international portfolio of completed works, unbuilt projects, and future ideas.

4) Toward A Minor Architecture

by Jill Stoner  (Author) 

Architecture can no longer limit itself to the art of making buildings; it must also invent the politics of taking them apart. This is Jill Stoner’s premise for a minor architecture. Her architect’s eye tracks differently from most, drawn not to the lauded and iconic but to what she calls “the landscape of our constructed mistakes”—metropolitan hinterlands rife with failed and foreclosed developments, undersubscribed office parks, chain hotels, and abandoned malls. These graveyards of capital, Stoner asserts, may be stripped of their excess and become sites of strategic spatial operations. But first we must dissect and dismantle prevalent architectural mythologies that brought them into being—western obsessions with interiority, with the autonomy of the building-object, with the architect’s mantle of celebrity, and with the idea of nature as that which is “other” than the built metropolis. These four myths form the warp of the book.

Drawing on the literary theory of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, Stoner suggests that minor architectures, like minor literatures, emerge from the bottoms of power structures and within the language of those structures. Yet they too are the result of powerful and instrumental forces. Provoked by collective desires, directed by the instability of time, and celebrating contingency, minor architectures may be mobilized within buildings that are oversaturated, underutilized, or perceived as obsolete.

Stoner’s provocative challenge to current discourse veers away from design, through a diverse landscape of cultural theory, contemporary fiction, and environmental ethics. Hers is an optimistic and inclusive approach to a more politicized practice of architecture.
