Update on Latest Architecture Resources

Two new e-books have been added to the GSA library catalogue this week. The first, 'The Practice of Modernism' (2007) by John Gold discusses the challenges faced by a generation of architects in the mid-twentieth century following dissatisfaction at the initially well-received, infiltration of modernist architecture and town planning projects. The second, 'Agropolis: The Social, Political and Environmental Dimensions of Urban Agriculture' (2005) edited by Luc J.A. Mougeot collates the work of ten research papers in various international 'city-farming' projects to advocate for further study in the area of urban agriculture as a necessary means of developing sustainability theory. Both resources can be accessed via the library catalogue using DawsonEra by following the url. on the catalogue record. MyGSA log-in details are required.

In addition, undergraduate dissertations can now be requested at the Library Desk for 2012's cohert of graduates. A full history of all student dissertations can be found on the GSA Library website: http://www2.gsa.ac.uk/library/pdfs/DissertationsinGSALibrary2012.pdf
