    Forty years after French protestors took to the streets with the rallying cry Sous les paves, la plage! (Beneath the pavement, the beach!), a new form of radical expression took shape at MoMA's P.S.1 courtyard in Queens, New York. Above the Pavement---the Farm! reveals the groundbreaking efforts of architecture firm WORKac and their team of more than 150 collaborators---farmers, politicians, horticulturists, technicians, soil scientists, engineers, architecture students, and artists---to create a working urban farm, hoisted 30 feet high, using industrial cardboard tubes filled with more than 50 varieties of locally grown fruits and vegetables. Called Public Farm 1 (P.F.1), this new breed of sustainable infrastructure, capable of generating its own power, recycling rainwater, cultivating crops, and encouraging leisure, demonstrated that even the most impossibly utopian visions of green city living are within our reach.Above the Pavement---the Farm! presents a delectable range of ideas and issues situated at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and food. Featuring a lively melange of voices depicting the making of P.F.1---with contributions by artist and agricultural activist Fritz Haeg, architectural historian Meredith TenHoor, architect Winy Maas, and head chef Michael Anthony of New York City's Gramercy Tavern---this book introduces a new era of ecological thinking and urban sustenance.Inventory Books is a platform for the synthesis of textual and visual research on transformations in urban spaces and culture.

    Does energy consumption influence architectural style? Should more energy-efficient buildings look different? Can that "look" be used to explain or enhance their performance? Architecture and Energy provides architects and architectural theorists with more durable arguments for environmental design decisions, arguments addressing three different scales or aspects of contemporary construction. By drawing together essays from the leading experts in the field, this book engages with crucial issues in sustainable design, such as:The larger role of energy in forming the cultural and economic systems in which architecture is conceived, constructed, and evaluatedThe different measures and meanings of energy "performance" and how those measures are realized in buildingsThe specific ways in which energy use translates into the visible aspects of architectural style.Drawing on research from the UK, US, Europe, and Asia the book outlines the problems surrounding energy and architecture and provides the reader with a considered overview of this important topic.
