Most Canadians are city dwellers, a fact often unacknowledged by twentieth-century Canadian films, with their preference for themes of wilderness survival or rural life. Modernist Canadian films tend to support what film scholar Jim Leach calls “the nationalist-realist project,” a documentary style that emphasizes the exoticism and mythos of the land. Over the past several decades, however, the hegemony of Anglo-centrism has been challenged by francophone and First Nations perspectives and the character of cities altered by a continued influx of immigrants and the development of ci

Digital technology has changed the way we interact with everything from the games we play to the tools we use at work. Designers of digital technology products no longer regard their job as designing a physical object?beautiful or utilitarian?but as designing our interactions with it. In Designing Interactions, award-winning designer Bill Moggridge introduces us to forty influential designers who have shaped our interaction with technology. Moggridge, designer of the first laptop computer (the GRiD Compass, 1981) and a founder of the design firm IDEO, tells us these stories from an industry in

In his new book, the eminent philosopher Andrew Benjamin turns his attention to architecture, design, sculpture, painting and writing. Drawing predominantly on a European tradition of modern philosophical criticism running from the German Romantics through Walter Benjamin and beyond, he offers a sequence of strong meditations on a diverse ensemble of works and themes: on the library and the house, on architectural theory, on Rachel Whiteread, Peter Eisenman, Anselm Kiefer, Peter Nielson, David Hawley, Terri Bird, Elizabeth Presa and others. In Benjamin’s hands, criticism is bound up with

This 35-minute work is sometimes thought of as Elgar's answer to his contemporary Richard Strauss' tone poem "Ein Heldenleben." It was given its premiere at the Birmingham Music Festival on Oct. 1, 1912 with the composer at the podium. Elgar quotes extensively from his own previous works throughout. This new vocal score is an unabridged digitally-enhanced reprint of the one issued by Novello & Co., Ltd. in 1912, enlarged to a more readable A4 size. A welcome addition for Elgar enthusiasts, alto soloists, choruses, and pianists.

The Italians were so busy creating and performing superb music that they neglected to tell the great epic story of their wondrous achievement. With BRAVO! We hope to tell that story. The 1,000-year-old story begins, basically, with the work of a humble monk from the city of Arezzo. And this story has no ending. If on one hand we will never know the music of the Egyptians, of the Greeks, and of the Romans, we have come know the music of every composer from the 12th Century to the present day, thanks to Guido's invention of the musical scale. As the story unfolds, we are rewarded with the many c

The Red Apple is a stunning new apartment complex on Wijnhaven Island. The slender high-rise section forms a succinct contribution to the Rotterdam skyline. In addition, the building comprises a horizontal wedge-shaped structure, which includes a spacious atrium. The groundfloor contains public amenities situated round an arcade. The name Red Apple is derived from the vivid red colour of the aluminium panels in the façade, but also refers to the historical function of the location as a place where apples used to be transshipped. It is obviously also a reference to the high-rise capital
