  • URGENT ARCHITECTURE

    How can we adequately provide housing when disaster strikes? Catastrophes come in a variety of forms, be they weather-related (hurricanes, floods and droughts) or society-driven (resulting from civil disorder or poverty), instantaneous (earthquakes, tsunamis) or gradual (rising sea levels). Yet all urgently demand safe, sustainable housing designs that are cheap to build, environmentally friendly, and hardy enough to withstand severe environmental conditions. Not only is there climate change to contend with, there are millions of people, right now, who do lack safe or adequate housing.

    In Urgent Architecture, Bridgette Meinhold showcases 40 successful emergency and long-term housing projects-from repurposed shipping containers to sandbag homes. She surveys successful structures as well as highlighting promising projects that are still being developed. Every one is quickly deployable, affordable and sustainable. This book is an essential resource for those who are interested in green building, sustainable design, eco-friendly materials, affordable housing, material reuse and humanitarian relief.

  • UTAH BLAINE

    By Louis L'Amour. Colonel Utah Blaine, held captive by the army of the revolution, broke out of jail and headed north from Mexico with nothing but the clothes on his back. Then he found new trouble struggling at the end of a noose — and stepped in just in time to save the life of a Texas rancher. The would-be executioners were the rancher's own men, looking to steal his land. Now Utah has a unique proposition: have the wealthy Texan play dead, introduce himself as the spread's new foreman, and take care of the outlaws one by one. The wage to fight another man's war? A hundred a month plus expenses. The cost of falling in love while he earns that wage? It wasn't exactly part of the original agreement, but Utah will soon find out — unless the bad guys get him first.
